Last Tuesday night, Adam Lambert, delivered a smoldering, sexy rendition of “Feeling Good” with a rock edge. Adam sauntered down the endless Idol staircase entertaining us with his soft raspy vocals building up to his arrival on the Idol stage. Simon Cowell called Adam’s entrance, “The best of the season.” As Adam enticed us with his pitch perfect vocals, he built up to his glory note and held it effortlessly for over nine seconds. Rosie from TALC let us know just how impressive that note was. “For those of you keeping track, one of our fellow posters who has a tuner, clocked last night’s “glory note” at a solid (pitch perfect) D5. Obviously with the power and sustain, that could not have been a false note. That’s HIGH y’all!!!”

Paula Abdul told Adam, “With every performance that I see, it’s like watching the Olympics and you’re our Michael Phelps.” I think that pretty much says it all.

Jamie Foxx, this week’s mentor on Idol had this to say after working with Adam Lambert, “The way he sang that song right now, he’s going to knock every body’s head off. He can sing with the best of them and he’s going to be great.” I thought Jamie Foxx was a wonderful mentor. He was so honest with all of the contestants and really helped them get in touch with the song they were going to sing and the result was a better show across the board.

Jamie Foxx spoke with Ryan Seacrest on his LA KISS radio show yesterday morning. FreddyFudpucker at TALC had this to say about the interview, “Jamie Fox is just such an awesome guy and musician and for him to say such great things about Adam is just totally awesome! I love the way he said Adam is going to break through the upper stratosphere… Which reminded me of where his notes often end up too!” You can listen to the interview here


Here’s what it was like to see Adam’s performance live; what we can’t see through our televisions. “Finally, I must tip my hat to the Steadycam operators for Glambert’s “Feelin’ Good,” who unleashed some first-rate hustle while racing around Adam before he finished his epic final high note. Their work ethic was so impressive, actually, that I rose to my feet with the rest of the crowd on that note, a note that also got me wondering how exactly Adam could possibly out-do his own vocal acrobatics at this point in the show. (Maybe enter into frequencies only dogs can hear?) No matter; during the recap package, Adam’s Idol rivals came out to sincerely congratulate him, Kris first with a full two-armed hug, followed by Gokey with a solid one-armed bro hug, and then Giraud with a good-goin’ high-school-sports-coach slap on the shoulder. Allison appeared too nervous for any sort of physical contact, and Adam, Kris and Giraud instinctively surrounded her like protective big brothers; Gokey, through no fault of his own, found himself boxed out like the neighborhood kid who can’t quite take the hint. When Lambert hit the high note again in his recap clip, Kris pointed to the sky, as if to say, there’s this guy’s limit.” by Adam Vary at EW.Com

Performance Comments from the members of TALC

“I think all the contestants were raising the bar tonight to try and compete with ADAM who always owns the show. And they did pretty good. I still think that no matter how they try, they just can never get close to him. He’s absolutely without question the best. Most talented man I have seen in I can’t even remember when. I guess I would have to say Elvis. Boy that sure dates me doesn’t it. I mean there are LOTS of great singers out there, like Freddie Mercury, etc, etc. but for pure mesmerizing qualities Elvis was different. He won his fans hearts totally, not just his music, his looks, his charm, his charisma. This is what I see in Adam. Like a shooting star…….”, by Sheila at TALC

“As always, Adam gave 110% in his performance tonight and he was AMAZING and BRILLIANT!! I don’t need him to top every performance each week because I don’t think that is possible. Even for Adam. I look at each performance as a separate performance as if I was seeing him for the 1st time. And he still hasn’t disappointed me yet. How could he? No matter what, for me, he was breathtaking and I loved this performance. I actually love EVERY performance of his. But this one ranks right up there. Though ROF will always be #1 for me. There no words to describe him. All I can say is…he is a SUPERSTAR!!” by Jennifer at TALC

“Alright, I absolutely ADORED his Muse rendition of this song. His showmanship is phenomenal! And his vocals are sick! That last note at the end, I found myself holding my breath. And then letting go in a whoosh. And did ya see him ROCK that top model swagger? Adam for me, is beautiful perfection. Jeez, my cheeks hurt from smiling so much.” by Mikky at TALC
