Adam Lambert of 'American Idol'
Singer: ADAM LAMBERT
Song: "If I Can't Have You"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: Adam's already done disco. He's already worn his John Travolta white suit. And he did up-temp last week. So Adam just decided to turn to this one into a plaintive ballad. Since I'm well on the record with my appreciation of Adam's work this season, I'm entitled to say that this one was somehow less entertaining than I might have hoped for. I guess the secret with Adam is that he really cheats expectations at every turn. So you think that Disco Night is a theme he can really have fun with. And his response is, "Nope. I've got some wailing to do." But whatever he decides on, he does it well, albeit with a bit of a cat-in-a-gunny-sack tinge tonight.
Athos, Porthos, Aramis and Simon Say: Randy says that at this point, contestants should be showing range and that Adam is ready right now and that he has it majorly going on. Kara tells Adam he's brilliant, that it's inspiring. Paula, voice cracking, says she felt his pain and vulnerability and implies that he tore his heart out and left it on the stage. Simon loved that he'd never heard the song like this before and that the vocals were immaculate. Adam stops the praise to celebrate Michael Orland, who helped him come up with the arrangement.
