“One” by U2 is a beautiful song with a very powerful message that speaks to everyone all over the world. Adam Lambert’s heartfelt interpretation of “One” left me in tears. Adam began from a very vulnerable place which drew me in with his quiet vocals while his crescendo to an intense vocal with raw emotion, had my full attention as I felt every passionate word. As the song ended, I heard his message of hope. The control Adam possesses vocally is perfection, but it’s the way he conveys his powerful message from deep within his soul that makes Adam Lambert an extraordinary artist. As the camera paned the audience, Adam’s mother was in tears, clearly moved by her son. Bono told Simon that “It would be his pleasure” to give clearance for Adam Lambert to sing “One”. I would love to know Bono’s reaction to Adam’s interpretation of “One” because I felt Adam’s delivery was exquisite.

“Adam, if somehow you can hear in your head the words of your fans, know this: you were the epitome of “beautiful” tonight. As I watched you standing there beaming, radiating after One, it seemed so obvious that you ARE the “one.” The one American Idol, the one shining star in the whole crazy world of reality TV…. and in my mind, the one man who has finally arrived to revitalize and unite this country with your sweet, sweet face, voice and messages of peace and love and gratitude. I know this all sounds over the top, but I am one tired mama, ALL the time and it takes a lot to get me to vote without a drink or potty break as I just did for 2 hours straight.” by clawmachine at TALC

Adam Lambert sang Aerosmith’s “Cryin” adding his own phrasing and vocal style staying close to the original wanting to do Stephen Tyler proud. Adam glides effortlessly through his range hitting notes most singers could only dream of nailing. Adam, the rock star, is completely energizing and still amazes me every time. Always the professional, Adam turned and waved to thank the band even though they were out of sight, they were not out of mind. After the roar of the crowd died down, Randy said to Adam, “You are one of the best we’ve ever had on this stage, one of the most charismatic, one of the biggest brightest stars. You should be a rock star, cause that’s who you are baby!”

Ryan asked Adam what he felt now that everything was said and done. Adam chose not to talk about himself, but rather his fellow contestants. “I think Kris and Danny did really well tonight. I was watching back stage, they’re incredible, they’re both so talented. It’s an honor to be in their presence… to be in their company, so we’ll see what happens.” Adam is a class act through and through.

Last night, the Top 3 contestants gave everything they had on that Idol stage. Their schedules are jam packed every day, they are working non stop week after week, and the pressure has to be beyond intense. This week, add a day in their hometowns which must have been one of the most rewarding, overwhelming, emotional, and exhausting days of their life. I take my hat off to these three guys. As a viewing audience, I think there are times when we get caught up in the competition aspect and therefore miss out on the actual performance itself. So if you can, try to step back for a moment to allow yourself the opportunity to appreciate Adam Lambert the vocalist, the performer, and the artist for all that he is. Music is a form of expression and if you can clear your mind and open your heart, then you can truly hear it and feel it.

    We are seeing the true birth of a super Star with Adam, and all of his fan base will give a sigh of relief when this competition is over. Then we can get some rest and wait for the CDs to start showing up; We will be comforted through Adam’s music and blessed to have been part of his birth. Thank you American Idol for bringing to America this great talent.
    The head is crowning, and one more big push is all we need for the new life to come forth.

    we all have to vote,vote,vote. this is the only time adam will be the american idol. we cannot allow this opportunity to get away from us. this is important and life altering in a way that cannot be fully fathomed or explained. it can only be felt in the deepest way imaginable. and adam gives that to all of us every week-freely,deeply and with the greatest love there is. he is selfless and fealess when he performs. reaching into the depths of his soul and gifting all of us with the light that resides there. i speak for myself when i say these things but when i read everything that is out there i know that i speak for all of us who love adam and his beautiful talent. what a gift to us and the world. and so we must return that gift a hundred/thousandfold with our voices and our VOTES to ensure that his rise to the world stage is played out on the idol stage. CONTINUE TO VOTE: vote early,vote the entire 2 hours, vote as much as you can–it’s our way of saying we see you, we hear you, we love you, we support you, we thank you, Godspeed to your new and wonderful life Adam.

    Beautifully said. Couldn’t agree more. Also loved the birthing analogy. We are in for a treat, people, with this new American Idol and he will transform and unite this country for all that he does, feels, believes in, and is. He is the total package and Obama would be wise to use him as some sort of ambassador way beyond the walls of LA.

    Absolutely amazing–which is his standard. Even though his talent is unlike any other I’ve seen, what I keep noticing each week on the show and in every interview I’ve seen is what a kind person he is. Absolutely amazing individual to keep his balance, focus, and heart like he does.
    I’ve been an Idol fan for all 8 years and never saw such an array of talent–that he stands out as he does is not because the others have been weak, but because he is unique in an awesome way.
    Thank God he’s a good person as well. I am sad Idol is nearly over–I actually will miss him–but I look forward to seeing a good deal of him in the future because this is a talent that will last.

    I read on another site that “Heartless” as sung on the AI stage may not be an original version.Apparently a High school student has already performed it that way.
