It’s getting down to the nitty gritty.
There are 5 Idol contestants left. Several of those contestants would have had substantially better chances if they had not been on the season featuring Adam Lambert. Poor bastards.
Anyway, it was “Standards” night at Idol–which meant lotsa Rat Pack stylin’ and lots of songs that we’ve all heard millions of times. Adam Lambert sang Nina Simone’s classic tune, “Feelin Good.” Only, he sang a version that was more MUSE than Nina Simone… though none of the judges seemed to recognize that as such. Doesn’t matter anyway– cause he.killed.it.again!
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried for Allison– she is young but is the only other somewhat original singer on the show and I feel like she might be in trouble for tomorrow. As for the other contestants, we already have a Jason Mraz, a Michael Buble, a Justin Timberlake… all we’re missing in the pop lexicon is an Adam Lambert. And in a few weeks, we’ll have him!
