“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.

The Importance of Your Vote for Adam Lambert

It’s very simple when it comes right down to it; you vote for who you think is the best singer/performer on the show. For me, that’s been Adam Lambert since Season 8 began; giving us a unique and captivating performance with flawless killer vocals week after week. Never in the history of Idol, has there ever been anyone as talented as Adam Lambert. The American Idol win is important to Adam as it should be, he’s worked very hard for it, and in my opinion, he has earned it and he deserves it. During Adam Lambert’s radio interview in San Diego, Adam was asked if he wins American Idol, how will he feel and what will it mean to him. Adam’s response, “If I were to win, it would definitely be a validation of everything I have worked for, my whole life, I have been trying to entertain people. Getting to be on this platform and being able to entertain this many people all at once… this is the ultimate prize. This is what I’ve wanted for my whole life so it will be a crowning achievement and it will be pretty overwhelming.”

“Be wise. Your vote is sacred. Don’t count on Dial Idol,, Allison’s fan club (sympathy votes), magazine articles, forums, blogs, or any media coverage that says Adam is SAFE. Adam needs is your VOTE on the phone, not Kris. Think about the goosebumps on your skin when Adam sang perfect acapella, standing in front of the American Flag at the MCAS Miramar Homecoming in SD on Friday. It drives home the need to vote for Adam, and no one else.” by PANDORA 60

“For anyone who comes across Adam fans who are talking about vote splitting and/or it being better that Adam loses – just remind them that Adam WANTS to win. It isn’t for them to decide what is better for him. He WANTS it. Vote for him because HE WANTS TO WIN. After his “Feelin’ Good” performance, this came up with Simon. In the review that I wrote for that week, I noted this: And for those out there writing articles or posting comments that Adam would be better off losing American Idol? Just look at Adam’s face when Simon observes that he can see Adam wants to win this thing. Yes he does. Yes he should. If you agree, VOTE for Adam Lambert.” by Glambert

“The competition is about the person who deserves it most. The person who is most talented. It is not about who you think will be better off by winning, by losing, by coming in 3rd, who you want to see battle it off in the end with a certain someone else. Whatever. That is completely selfish. Pick the person who you like the most and vote for them. Adam is working hard every week and he has gained us as fans from the BEGINNING, I’m so sorry but no one else in the competition even comes CLOSE to Adam in my eyes. They have done diddly squat compared to Adam and I do not care who gets voted off when as long as Adam is in the finals and wins! The fact that any Adam fan can even want to give votes to someone else just blows my mind. If Adam got kicked off this week I would not even be watching next week or voting for anyone!” by Leming&LambertFan

Remember how important last weeks votes were? Well this week it will be even MORE IMPORTANT. If you want to GUARANTEE Adams spot in the finale, then you need to vote. You need to vote hard. You need to get as many people as you know to vote. Do whatever it takes to get the word out for votes. VOTING is the only way to get him through. DO NOT GET COMPLACENT. Complacency will do nothing but guarantee Adam leaving the contest. DO not assume that he is safe because “other people are voting”. What if everyone has that same thought as you!? Then Adam goes home.


If you have AT&T as your carrier and you “Power Text” your votes, be sure to test your power texting method before you use it to vote. Many cell phones, especially AT&T Go Phones allow you to power text, however, only 1 text vote is actually sent. By testing your method to another cell phone ahead of time, you will know if your phone will power text and send multiple text votes at one time. If your cell phone does not send more than 1 vote, you are better off texting single texts, as it takes less time, and all of your texts count as votes.
