Have you seen Andrew De Leon on America’s Got Talent? He’s a goth/glam-styled singer with a look and a voice that comes out of nowhere. Granted he is not a trained opera singer, but just to catch the look combined with his voice is an out-of-this-world experience. I imagine he’s got contacts in his eyes, but for all I know this is natural.
Which brings me around to Adam! On the results night from this performance, I took great delight that Adam Lambert was used as a frame of reference. Andrew was one of judge Howie Mandel’s Wild Card picks. After his performance, Howie took great delight in the audience’s response and shouted out “If Marilyn Manson and Adam Lambert had a child, it would be you!“ If I could only find the video showing that! If anyone can find it, please include a link.
By the way, the comments from judges Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel are spot-on. The criticism is constructive and they don’t lead anyone on with false hopes. No sugar coating like we had to suffer through during the past 2 years of American Idol. Hey Idol judges, pay attention!
Be sure and check out the second video. It’s Andrew’s first audition in front of the judges. It’s very reminiscent of Adam’s San Francisco audition. And if it looks like it’s Adam’s If I Had You, it’s not. Don’t know why that is showing!
