Okay Glambs, I don’t want to start a war here, but we’ve got to talk about last night’s The Voice. I was SO proud to hear that Adam Lambert was being covered. Another feather in his cap! I have loved Nakia’s past performances and was excited to hear his take on Whattaya Want From Me. At first I wasn’t happy to hear of his disappointment in song choice. But he redeemed himself by admitting once he listened to the words, that it was a great song.
And then he sang it. Yes, he did a really good job portraying his version of the emotions of the song, but he seemed to have lost track of his words, sang something at the wrong time, and then the rest of the song felt off.
But this was NOTHING in comparison to Adam Levine’s comments. First Levine looked awkward when he first said he wasn’t really familiar with the song. WHAAAATTTTT? Adam, your music is in the same Pop category as Adam Lambert’s, and Lambert had a grammy nomination for best song, so how could you NOT know the song??? Now my sister just told me that Adam Levine is known for not listening to the radio, etc., but it just seems weird. And then Levine deepens his grave by saying “I’m sure you sang it better than the original.” WHAAAATTTTTT? ARE YOU KIDDDDINNNGGG MEEEE??? If you truly didn’t know the song, why would you say that???
Adam Lambert obviously watches the earlier east coast broadcast, because his tweets are ahead of western program time. So we were prepared for something to have happened when these tweets came through:
adamlambert Yeah Nakia! Saaaang boy!! Great performance. I think Adam might know who I am after this next album. Get ready for me Levine. Hahah
But for the record, Im def a Maroon 5 fan. Fans: there is NO reason to be angry. Thanks for being protective but it’s all good. 🙂
If you didn’t catch the show, here is the clip:
I have to get out to an appointment so I’ll leave it here for your comments. Please remember our lessons in positivity, but we have a right to be fans too! All good, Adam! 🙂
