Born to Be Oh So Very Wild!

As soon as I heard ‘Born To Be Wild’ was the song Adam was doing tonight, I had all these thoughts running around about how he was going to work this out. We all KNEW he was going to pull out all the stops on this one! After last week’s masterpiece, it was pretty much a given that he was going to go totally the opposite way and rock the house. And did he ever!!!
Immediately we see that he is back to his original look and I, for one, couldn’t be happier! I’m not thrilled that he is performing third, towards the beginning tonight; there is nothing to look forward to after this, but I guess in the name of fairness, it had to be done. I find it funny that Paula, of course, gets to judge Adam; she wouldn’t have it any other way! OKAY….. this is most definitely what Adam was born to do! The makeup, nail polish, eyeliner, and Zac Efron hair are20back and so are the signature Adam runs and electrifying voice that have stood out all season, And the ending! Typical amazing Adam! Paula is my alter ego as far as Adam is concerned. She just adores him and doesn’t hide it; kind of like my very biased journalism this season. Paula said Adam is shaking up the competition because he dares to dance in the power of greatness, and fortune rewards the brave. Simon sarcastically said he needs to learn how to express himself. He said vocally it was great but it was like the ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ (which Adam said he loves; so do I; can’t count how many times I’ve seen that!) Simon didn’t think that this performance will be as popular as last week’s. Well duh, it was a totally different type of song, Simon, with a totally different goal! What kind of comment is that? Adam was not going for comparison. He was going for fun, originality, entertainment, and great vocals, and he banged the nail on the head on all counts. He set out what he attempted to do, what his fans expected, and what he needed to do at this point in the competition. Perfect!
Quentin loves him too; said he’s a rock star and can’t wait to see what he’ll do. I’m SO GLAD he is showing us his rocker side again. I can picture an Adam concert with 90% songs like this, and 10% of chill inducing songs like ‘Mad World’. Adam is one smart dude. He knows what he has to do each week, and he does it with perfection. He changes it up when he needs to, and keeps it the same when he needs to. He is consistently a brilliant vocalist and entertainer, and keeps us sitting here with ear to ear grins the entire time he is performing. I also have a feeling that Adam has a few more surprises in store for us before this competition is over. Just wait; you will see I am right as the weeks unfold! Because I know that fan or not, most of America cannot wait to see what these surprises will be!!
