A Change Is Gonna ComeOh wow, a Taylor song.  Adam breaks out the suit for this one and looks oh so very handsome.  What a great song choice! Adam totally kicked ass, those long notes were adamazing, and he did what he needed to do.  He showcased all his strengths, went from that incredible low to that unreal high, and was awesome on everything in between. 
Thank you Simon Fuller!  You picked the right song for Adam and we needed to hear him do this original interpretation.  I think what Paula said was right on.  Even if Adam happens to ‘lose’ this competition, he will be an icon in the music industry and that is really what’s important. 

 

Randy: That song is an amazing R & B classic, and you showed that the real reason you are here is that you can sing your face off.  That was unbelievable.

Kara: That may have been your best performance and interpretation of a song.  The combination of the high notes and how you showed the emotion of the song is your winning combination.

Paula: That was the best I’ve ever heard you sing ever, ever, ever.  Unbelievable.  You look like a superstar up there and whatever happens with this Idol journey, I know with every fiber of my being that you are going to be iconic.

Simon: You are 100% back in the game.  Congratulations.

  3. adamisthe1 says:

    Wow. This has always been one of my fav R&B songs and Adam was INCREDIBLE. Love rock, and Adam’s a great rocker, but kept hoping for an R&B theme night – he so has the voice for it, and that ability to connect. Vote Adam!

  4. Adamforevercayman says:

    Fantastic ADAM! you are truly an IDOL!

  5. Ms. Misha says:

    whoops. now I am getting through EVERY time. better get cracking folks!!

    • AdamAddict says:

      Yes,yes I’m still voting non stop. You guys don’t either because Kris’s voters still voting.
      We going to make Adam win big! Don’t stop guys!

      Still got busy signal but I’m hoping for miracle now! VOTE!!

  9. AdamAddict says:

    He sang this song beautifully. Better than “No Boundaries” , I think.I thought he’s going to pick 1 fast song and wearing tight pants and boots and all but I guess not. We didn’t get sexy hot Adam but we get dashing,gorgeous and handsome Adam. I have no complaint. I love him very much and still voting!

    Vote people,vote!!

    • AdamAddict says:

      I didn’t noticed before because the screen is too small but after watched it in big plasma tv then I noticed he did wore tight pants and boots! Awesome!
      To me,He sang “A change Is Gonna come” was brilliant! I got goose bump,really! The voice is like…it’s all out! SATISFACTION to me!
      “No Boundaries”, all I know he sang better than Kris, for sure. Kris looked suffered sang that song.Screw Randy for saying pitchy to our Adam!
      I think I like this “Mad World” than week 5. But I have to say Kris was good in “Ain’t No Sunshine”

      Over all, I think Adam should win not because I love him but he just deserves more than Kris after all week we had witnessed!
      I LOVE YOU ADAM NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS TOMORROW AND i’LL SUPPORT YOU FOREVER.
      P/S.you guys should believe that because this was my 1st time ,I actually care voting. Never had,not even in my own country.

  10. AdamAddict says:

    I got 4 times only,can you believe that? I sat here from 9am(Malaysia time) and now 1pm. I still have 1 hour to vote. I need to pee but I think I just hold it. Lucky I’m not a guy, otherwise I need my prostate check after this.

    I going continue,come on baby! Let’s get hundreds,thousands!!

  11. by playing it straight on stage, i’m thinking maybe Adam didn’t want to give finicky voters any ammunition to use against him with all the counter-publicity he’s been getting. i think he played it super safe tonight, perhaps to balance the playing field vs. Christian Kris.

    actually, it was a pretty smart move. his loyal fans were already 200% behind him. he didn’t have to take chances to impress anyone. but by playing down the flamboyancy, he didn’t stirrr the coals either, giving anyone on the bubble the opening to decide in his favor.

    good strategy.

    he can let loose with his saucy stuff on the tour, where it would be most appreciated!

    whatdya think?

    i voted all night until my phone battery collapsed from exhaustion.

  12. jtluvesadam says:

    • AdamAddict says:

      And I’m sorry I did left for 2 minutes to go to the bathroom because I just can’t wait any longer. Either 2 min speeding pee or 2 yrs traumatized peed in my pants??!! Sorry guys,but I ran back to vote for our Adam. I got through like 10-12,I think! Just that little. I’m so disappointed right now!How some people get through like hundreds or thousand? WTH,HOW?

      I pray Adam still can win this.
      Kris’s voters+Danny’s voters VS ADAM’S LOVERS

  16. I have an ingrown toenail that has been really hurting me all day (throbbing, actually)
    and you know what?….. while Adam was singing all three songs, it didn’t feel it!
    He is SOOOO GOOOOD, and I was SOOO into his songs, it made me forget about
    everything else! What kind of statement is that for his power? He is awesome!!

  17. RadicalRich says:

    Some people are saying that if Adam doesn’t win they’ll never watch Idol again. I beg to differ…

    After Adam wins [and he will win by the way] why would you even need to watch Idol any more. They may as well pack it up after tomorrow no matter who wins. There won’t be any good reason to watch. We’ve already got all the Idol we’ll ever need. Mr. Adam Lambert.

    Never mind an Idol, we’ve got our American Icon. Adam the Icon.

    He is such a fine showman. He’s such a consummate gentleman and a genius. So humble and thankful and respectful he is to the other contestants, judges and the band. He is so very appreciative and complimentary to his parents, his voters and his fans. What else could you possibly need in an entertainer, or in any person for that matter. He is a true class-act in every sense of the word.

    And what a great ambassador he will be for the United States? He’s going to be such an inspiration to so many people with his brand of respect, humility and Americanism. He’s going to be able to span across most every genre’ of music and appeal to more people than probably anyone else ever has. All he has to do is stay true to himself, resist the temptation to stray from the path he is presently on, and he will attain heights never before reached by any artist.

    The AI Season 9 show next year, if they are foolish enough to do it again, is undoubtedly going to seriously pale in comparison to this year cause it was just so unbelievably good. So absolutely good because of Adam Lambert, and only because of Adam. Even his perceived minor imperfections made him more real and entertaining than any of the other contestants. The others were OK, but none of them had the concentration and determination to do as well as Adam did with each and every performance.

    Just wait until all the factoids and figures come out about the number of views and listens of his various videos and songs, and TV interviews and everything in between. Just wait until you see the money he has generated for the iTunes company from the song and video downloads. Just look at all the unlicensed merchandise that’s already for sale at this point and he’s only just begun. Wait until the ratings of his performances are tabulated and published. Just wait until the figures come out about how he single handedly brought out of the dust the popularity of all the classic songs he performed and how much the original writers and artists and groups have gained by his exposure of them. It’s going to be staggering the number of people who absorbed everything there is to absorb of Adam as they could since he started. People are going to crave for him and his talents more than a drowning man wants another breath or an addict wants another hit.

    Adam may even have the ability to soften a lot of those hardened hearts and haters out there who might realize his gifts of kindness and respect, and how much we all could learn and benefit by the fine example he set with his performances, his character, his comments, his forthright personality and his genuinely kind hearted nature all along the way.

    It is a rare gift indeed to find such a person as Adam in these times. Let’s all use and follow his exemplary attitude of determination, respect and kindness, and witness as he embarks on a journey most of us can only dream of, but who each of us can make the best of any path we are on if we can follow his example.

    Rock on Mr. Lambert, Rock on!!

    • I totally agree with every single word. It’s like Idol was created to find Adam…how often on earth do you find a rare gem like him. We have all been blessed with his sharing of talent. An individual of incredible emotion and an ability to move others with his amazing talents. Talent is such a small word for him. On the tv guide pre-show one the speakers said he was like “watching a work of art every time he walks out on stage” and that’s how I feel. He is a living work of art himself. I also happen to think his parents are amazing for giving his the freedom in his life to totally explore his interests and to excel. I am a parent and take example to recognize my children for they are, not what I might have in mind for them. To raise them with total support and respect for the beautiful person inside.

    • AdamIsOurAI says:

      Extremely, completely well said, Rich.

      • AdamIsOurAI says:

        Actually, I feel like I won’t be able to live my life without him now, he has touched my soul in an unbelieveable way. I look forward to the time when he is flying on his own, after the AI Tour is over.

  18. I agree with Simon- worldwide star!!!!! And, even if he loses
    to Kris (I think all the Geeky- opps, Gorky fans will now be
    voting for Kris) it won’t matter. He has been discovered.
    Look at Jennifer Hudson- didn’t even make it to the top
    3 and that did not stop her! Adam doesn’t need the title
    to be the huge megastar he will become (almost overnight!)
    Go Adam- you give my ears orgasms!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Adam nailed the first 2. I don’t think anyone on this earth could have done something with Kara’s song of Adam couldn’t. I was worried Kris would pull it off, and it was a total failure. Felt sorry for both of them on that one…but Adam was better. Adam all the way.

  20. AdamAddict says:

    My back hurts like hell!!

    VOTE ADAM!!

    • AdamAddict says:

      7 hours sitting! My butt still sleeping! My Iegs cramping! I just role over going upstairs and take a nap! Another 2 hours I can watch A.I in my plasma TV!
      Adam has to win or I cry for months!
      LOOOVEEE ADAAAAM!!! Vote for Adam for the rest of my life!

  21. ‘Adam is a great singer and He really nailed it.. I like this song..i hope he will win because he really deserves it..Go Adam! I love you so much,I wish i can see u in person..

    • AdamAddict says:

      I wish I’ll never meet him in person. I don’t know how I’ll react. Probably like “A..A..AD..ah”,collapse right there. How embarassing is that? I don’t want him to give me CPR in front of people…wait a minute…YES ,I DO WANT TO MEET HIM IN PERSON! LOL!!

  22. ‘Wow, He really hits that Note with ease..He is so Great, I’m really looking forward to see him in person because He’s such a nice guy, a Great singer as well..I wish he will win this Because He really deserves it, He really worked for it..He in it to win it..

  23. I voted all four hours minus a few potty breaks but I more than made up for that because I had two cell phones and one land line going. Tricky at times but once I got the system going without any busy signals it was rocking. The land lines,especially in the beginning, would be busy but my cell phones almost always got through. While I didn’t really care much for the coronation song (mainly because of the the lyrics) Adam’s version will sell much better as a single then Kris’s. When I listened to it over and over again it actually started to grew on me, mainly because of Adam’s vocal skills. Kris’s version of the song was ok in parts but actually horrible in other parts, he really seemed to be struggling with it, screaming in his own little way and straining his voice trying to make it more powerful. Adam’s Mad world performance was visually awesome although I think his first vocal performance of Mad world was better. Adam totally won the night with his “a change is gonna come” performance because it was unbelievably good, while Kris’s counterpart song was weak. I did think Kris’s first song was really good but he cannot and does not deserve to win over Adam. Adam is going to be an international SUPERSTAR whether he wins the title or not but I really REALLY hope he is crowned the winner. I’m praying for him all through the night….

  24. If Adam loses it will be the fault of the bigots of the world and not that he wasn’t the most talented, because he WAS and IS the MOST TALENTED. I still think he will ultimately be the bigger star no matter what the outcome is, but I still hope he wins because he DESERVES to WIN. I’m addicted to Adam and I look forward to everything he is going to be doing in the future.

  25. I am in awe of this man. I feel so young again listening to him sing…I am in my thirties. he has given me a reason to smile. He is precious and beautiful. His voice is Angellic. Someone said he sounded like Patti Labelle – it’s true. I think he has the vocal ability of Patti Labelle adn Freddie Mercury. he is astonishing. It will be a joke for Idol if Adam does not win. Alhough, I know he will. He will be a huge star – there is no doubt about it. He already is. Brilliant. I love you Adam and will follow your career wherever you take it. I love you! God bless you. Clearly you have been blessed already. Simon was right: Kris sounds like a college kid in his dorm room. Adam sounds like an Angel. A room that size could not be filled with Kris’ soft little voice whereas Adam filled that room. His voice is a true instrument. I love you Adam! I voted over 100 times for you! ANd I would do it all over again. Go Adam!

  26. I spent 7 hours (with breaks, of course) on Gimzo5..but so disappointed that I only made 60+ calls as god knows what happened to the connection with Gimzo…it took over 5 mins to reconnect after each call! So annoying!!

  27. Voted the entire 7 hour period. Even with that – I only managed 30 connects for the final 3 hours. I hope it was enough. We did yeoman’s work, my friends. Whatever happens – we did right by our boy.

    G’Night (or morning, as the case may be).

    • AdamAddict says:

      I only got 13-15 votes and never live my chair for 7 hours! How sucks is that?

  28. hine100 says:

    Totally loved this song – A change is gonna come. The really freaky thing is that I downloaded the Terence Trent Darby version of it on youtube, as I already have the Sam Cooke version and have been playing it for a while. Just on a trip down nostalgia lane with Sign your name across Heart and Wishing Well led me back to this song. And of course it was Barack Obama’s song too. So I was just blown away by his rendition Absolutely Incredible pipes on Adam. Effortless, soaring, control, masterful (and it sounded damn good too!!) Needless to say this one is a keeper for me too.

  29. BETTY BARBESEIN says:

    WOW! WOW! WOW! WHAT CAN I SAY AFTER ALL THESE RESPONSES. ADAM YOU ARE WHAT THE JUDGES SAID, A ROCK IDOL IS BORN. NOT ONLY ROCK, BUT YOU CAN SING BALLADS, EVERYTHING, (EVEN THE PHONE BOOK AS RANDY SAID) PAULA SAID, YOU ARE “ICONIC” WHAT A GREAT FINALE, FANTASTIC, I COULD HAVE WATCHED YOU SING FOR HOURS AND I WAS SO SAD WHEN THE HOUR WAS OVER. TO-NIGHT, WE WILL WATCH WHO (ADAM) WINS……THE AMERICAN IDOL TITLE..(ADAM) ADAM, I HAVE WATCHED MANY OF YOUR TALENTS ON “YOU TUBE” AND OTHER WEB SITES AND THE SAME FLAMBOYANT ADAM, WHO SINGS TO HIS AUDIENCES AND MAKES THEM BELIEVE HE IS JUST SINGING TO US, WHAT A PERFORMER. ALL THE BEST TO-NIGHT ADAM IN THE FINALE. I HOPE THAT YOU WILL BE COMING TO ONTARIO SO THAT WE CAN HEAR YOU LIVE ON STAGE. THANK YOU ADAM FOR A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE THIS SEASON, YOU ARE ONE IN A MILLION. AND AN OLD SCOTTISH SAYING, “LANG MAE Y’ER LUMB REEK” MEANS:” HAVE A GREAT AND PROSPEROUS LIFE YOU DESERVE IT.” FOR ALL THE ENTERTAINMENT YOU HAVE GIVEN US. WOW! WOW! WOW!

  30. wow…yes Paula, he is iconic!!!!
    Adam….I can not wait until you (not AI) go on tour so I can sit at your concerts and enjoy you in real time…rock on

  31. BRILLIANT ADAM LAMBERT IS SUPER STAR,,THE BEST EVER AND FOREVER,,NOBODY CAN COMPETE WITH HIM,,HE HAS EVERYTHING ON HIM AND VERY HANDSOME MAN,,NO DOUBT,,HE IS THE KING OF MUSIC…..GREEINGS FROM SISKA

  32. AdamAddict says:

    From the start people predict Adam and Danny will be in finale but surprise surprise Danny was out. So, they suppose predict Adam is going to win. But after read all comments about Danny’s fan will vote for Kris,suddenly they like very sure Kris going to win. Why, because they can tell people “see I was right,I told you so” Not because Kris is better than Adam but because all those comments.If they never read all those comments,I think a lot of people will predict Adam is going to win! Why, because it’s too obvious! Adam has Star power! Period!

  33. I started voting immediately, of course, but got thru about 1 in 9 tries until midnite, when I could get thru EVERY time! Where was everyone else – on the east coast – between 12:00am & 1:00am???!!!! I had 2 phones & Gizmo5, but I could only get thru on Gizmo ONCE??!! WHY???? …Anyway, Adam was PERFECT-PERFECT-PERFECT!!!!!! Kris was pitiful, tho. I kept wondering HOW did Kris GET THERE????? He sings ok. Period, that’s all. I read on CNN blog that it was ALL CHRISTIANS MUST SHOW THEIR RELIGION by voting against Adam-what the hell?? My son is a pastor w/doctorate & my daughter isa believer, also, and they both love Adam and my daughter voted almost 100 times last nite. THERE IS NO ROOM FOR “religlious” HYPOCRITES TO BE INVOLVED IN A SINGING CONTEST!!! THAT IS A SIN AGAINST YOUR GOD, to bring that into a singing contest – PEOPLE -PLEASE- GIVE IT A F—– BREAK!!! i mean r e a l l y!! iF kRIS WINS TONITE IT WILL NOT B B/C HE WAS BETTER-GOD KNOWS-, IT WOULD BE B/C OF HATEFILLED IDIOT HYPOCRITES USING RELIGION AS THEIR REASON FOR IGNORANCE! This whole idea makes me ill. Let he, who is w/imperfections cast the 1st vote…. LOVE-PEACE-LOVE ….to ADAM and all Adam’s frilends…….

  34. AdamAdmirer says:

    ALL I CAN SAY IS AWESOME – PAULA SAID IT BEST – I AM IN COMPLETE AWE OF THIS GUY – HIS AMAZING STAGE PRESENCE, STYLE AND CHARISMA, COUPLED WITH HIS INCREDIBLE ANGELIC VOICE AND CHERUBIC FACE!! WHAT ELSE DO WE NEED?? WIN OR LOOSE, ADAM’S A WINNER !!!!

    Kris beats Adam,guys! Is that funny or what?
    WHAT,WHAT IT’S NOT A JOKE? WTH??

  36. John Chalm says:

    I havent spoken to a person in South AFrica who thought anyone else but ADAM should win …. Well done to Kris , but Adam is the real star …. He will go on and become and Icon ( Idol) to all….

  40. I’ve really never tuned into American Idol until this year and then it was after a few weeks when I heard one of Adam’s songs. I immediately became intrigued and obsessed with learning more about this man and went to the AI web site and other sites searching for anything that I could listen to that he sang on the show. I’ve listened to all the songs over and over and over and they all still have the same effect on me. It’s hard to explain what has transcended me into a little tweener once again adoring this new future icon. I was a very young girl when Elvis Presley made his impact on rock and roll and became a worshiper of this future king of rock and roll, and I have not been so affected by any singer since then. I’ve had and have many favorites, of course, and been a fan of many that are truly icons, too, — but the impact Adam Lambert has made in my life with his music, talent, humility, and sex appeal has put my universe into a tailspin. I can’t wait for his album because I wil be purchasing it no doubt and have become a committed fan.
