Adam Lambert on American Idol Part 6 Rat Pack Week

rat-packIt was “Rat Pack” night with the American Idol contestants singing standards.  Jamie Foxx mentored the 5 remaining singers and helped them reach within themselves for personality and audience connection while performing the music.

Kris Allen performed “The Way You Look Tonight” and had a great beginning and a great end with a so-so middle.  Allison Iraheta sang “Someone to Watch Over Me”. She performed well beyond her age (now 17) and got raspy while softening her rocker image. Matt Giraud had trouble with “My Funny Valentine”. He was hot when he sang with his full voice and fell short when he went falsetto and while extending his runs. Danny Gokey was cool all the way through “Come Rain or Come Shine”.

He came down the staircase in a white suit and stopped halfway, where he performed a full verse of “Feeling Good” before continuing down to the stage to finish the song. Once again, they saved the best performer for last. Adam was confident, polished, poised, and ready to win the contest again this week.

Kara DioGaurdi said that whenever Adam performs, her mouth drops open because he is confusing, shocking (in a good way), sleazy, superb, way over the top, appealing, and she likes him.  That sums up the way she feels whenever Adam performs.

I hope that America gets it right and keeps the best performers in the competition for at least one more week.

Once again, I’m just a guy sitting on the couch with my peeps at the Munro House watching American Idol while enjoying a tall cool soft drink in my red Coca-Cola Judge’s Cup enjoying the best entertainment on television.
