Relive the Top Three performance by Adam Lambert, Danny Gokey and Kris Allen in photo form
Adam Lambert of 'American Idol'
Singer: ADAM LAMBERT
Monkeys As Critics' Take: It's like Adam is trying to mock Gokey, saying, "You thought Aerosmith was hard last week? This is how a pro does it." Adam is done a horrid disservice by the background vocalist, who has been overmic-ed. As a result, he stands out of tune leading into the chorus and say what you will about Adam, his pitch is pretty perfect. The song has been gutted to fit the time and the result is really frantic, disjointed and poorly arranged. This is not Adam's fault, per se, but it's a misjudgment on several levels.
Ginger Spice, Baby Spice, Sporty Spice and Simon Say: Randy says Adam is one of the best they've ever had on the stage, that he loved it even more than "One." Kara says she'll see him in the Finals. Paula mutters something. Simon tells America to vote for Adam and to not assume that he's going to be in the Finals.
