Adam Lambert Crying by Aerosmith as Personal Pick – HQ Video and MP3

Adam Lambert sings Crying by Aerosmith as the Personal pick this week. High Quality Video and MP3 below. Pictures below the video.

Comments on this performance. Adam said that he wasn’t going to steer to much away from it. I wish he wouldn’t have said that. He completely did his own version. The beginning started really rough because he was thrown off by the background singers. The reason why that didn’t work out is because they weren’t harmonizing with him.

The second half, however, was BRILLIANT. Completely his own spin. That’s how to sing an Aerosmith song Danny Gokey.

Simon was absolutely right on target with his comment. People assume that the contestant has done so well that he is safe and they don’t vote and then we get a big surprise the next day.

    Hi guys, I live in the UK and over the years I have watched a lot of shows like X-factor, Pop Idol and American Idol and I know FOR SURE that SImon comments are always loaded with meaning because he always tries to push his own agenda and the fact that he said TWICE that people should vote for Adam means ONE THING – ADAM NEEDS THE VOTES to stay in the competition. It means that Simon must know that Danny and Kris are more popular and might edge Adam out!!!

    I guess we are lucky that Simon is on Adam’s side – and he should be because it is obvious that ADAM IS THE STAR OF THE COMPETITION… But is he going to be the winner??? Come on, American friends – please make him the winner! VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!

  2. My predictions were right on target, Adam singing Crying. Just another astonishing performance by Adam. Good job, you are the one, and no one can deny it! Too bad we Canadians can’t vote but we are certainly rooting for you, good luck Adam!

    • Of course you can vote….by Gizmo5! I voted for the very first time from HONG KONG today….although I only managed to get thro’ twice in 1 hour & 10mins (couldn’t go on after that time due to my computer deserted me & black out…..lol!)

  3. Lori Lainhart says:

    Adam…..i was wondering when someone would finaly do a led zep tune….i’ve watched idol from inception and now i know why zeppelin had to wait, it’s because you were the one who needed to do it. I look forward to seeing and hearing more of your artistry. You have an amazing God given talent…..you could probably sing the brady bunch song and make it sound incredible….take care, God speed

    • Jeanette says:

      Amen to that Lori!!! Adam is truly AMAZING & so talented….No one can hold a candle to him….Adam is the best, the most talented, the most original, the only contestant on IDOL that has ever had vocal range like he does…ADAM is clearly going to be a huge SUPERSTAR and he will be so loved and adored from all over the world!!! ADAM is BRILLIANT & MAGNIFICENT………. AMERICAN IDOL needed a contestant like him on this show!!! it was definitely lacking something all these past seasons…and it was lacking real pure awesome talent and a true artist like ADAM!!!!!!!!!. ADAM has brought this show to where it should be…

  4. glambertfan says:

    Have to say.it was disappoint performance of adam lambert. even worst than “feeling good”. but good part is other two were all sucks except “heartless” for brave arrangement..

    • AdamAdmirer says:

      WHAT, YOU CALL YOURSELF A GLAMBERT – BOTH PERFORMANCES TONIGHT WERE ADAMAZING AS EVER – AND FEELING GOOD WAS ALSO ONE OF THE TOP. THE OTHER TWO GUYS ARE NOT EVEN IN ADAM’S GALAXY, NO COMPARISON. ADAM ROCKED THE HOUSE TONIGHT – GREAT JOB – HITTING THOSE NOTES LEFT ME STUNNED AS USUAL!

      • We can love Adam but still have our own opinion and independent thinking. The judges gave Adam good critique because they want him to win, but I must agree with glambertfan – this was his worst night yet. Too much high notes sung in an almost desperate way on both songs, no melody in ‘one’ and awful backup singer in cryin’. There was no swagger, and the outfits (especially the first) were lame. have no idea what happened:( I voted for 2h but if I was not addicted to Adam from day 1, I would not have done it. I am really worried bout him and pray that he goes through and redeem this night with great performances in the finale!

        • Is it dat bad? Well, I haven’t seen the show. To be honest with you all cuz in my country, the show
          will be aired tomorrow.

          Anyway, I agree with you lililu. What a strong character you are. Even though we love Adam
          we still can have our own mind and independent thought.

          But, how bad he is, I think he still deserved ONE MORE CHANCE. why? All of his former
          renditions gave us miraculous moment. We can’t deny that. And thank you so much for
          backing him up even you hated the latest show.

          In fact, before this, my best friend shared with me her idea of a song – that will bring the best
          out of him. p,s : log in http://adamunofficial.com/adam-needs-to-do-an-evanescence-song/

          • Is it that bad? I haven’t seen the show. In my country, it will be aired tomorrow.
            I agree with you liliu. What a strong personality you are.
            Eventhough we love Adam, we still can have our own mind and independent thought.

            However, no matter how worst it is , I still think he deserved ONE MORE CHANCE
            cuz all of his previous renditions gave us miracles.
            We can’t deny that.

            And thanks for backing him up even you hated the latest one.

          “Even worse than Feeling Good” Huh, I love Feeling Good! I guess some people like it and some people don’t! Whatever!!

          Can Donald Trump fire that backup B**** ? Why the hell she so loud? She better don’t try A.I next season or I’m going to be BOOOO her!

          • IMO, I kinda agreed that this could be his worst performance, It seems that he couldn’t hear the music & his key seems a bit unusual high & sound strange as the song have been cut too short! (Feeling good has this problem too, but I love its studio version!). But his live performance of U2’s One is great! Overall he’s still miles ahead of Offkey (who’s performance is Zzzzzzzz…) & creepy lips Kris (who’s performance is so forgetable, imo!)

            • To Lides – Agree with the “creepy lips Kris” – mentioned it myself on another blog – reminds me of the Joker. Seems like a nice guy with a pleasant voice and some talent – but can’t watch him – ugh! Sometimes Danny sounds pretty good – but don’t look forward to looking at him either. Adam’s lucky – the camera loves his face – and so do a lot of viewers. Fortunately, he’s got the goods to go with the looks.

        • Marianadam says:

          The worst day By Adam is soooooooooooo muuuuuuch better the the best day of Danny and Kris
          I thinks he was amazing as allways and he’s steel rocking my world

        • AdamAdmirer says:

          DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT ROCK N ROLL IS?

    • Jeanette says:

      Are u serious??? A disappointment…are u nutz? All of Adam’s performances have been truly unbelievable…You call yourself “Glambert” you’re not a true Adam fan. if you even say what u said… Maybe need to go back and watch and listen to his other performances, last night “One by U2 and “Crying” by Aerosmith were fantastic…Adam can sing anything!!!!!!!!!!! Especially when he did “Feeling Good” that was unbelievable, when he sang the one extremely high note and held it for about 15 seconds….Nobody can do that!!! Maybe you should be a a Gokey fan… and look where Gokey ended up… he is voted off…not a “Glambert”…whatever that is…Please!!

      • AdamAdmirer says:

        I SO AGREE WITH JEANETTE. HOW COULD ANYONE BE DISAPPOINTED AN ANY PERFORMANCE BY ADAM – HE IS A TRAINED SINGER AND MAKES ANYTHING HE SINGS SOUND INCREDIBLE. YOU PEOPLE ARE WAY TO CRITICAL AND TO PUT IT BLUNTLY, YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT. SURE YOU ARE ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION, BUT YOU’RE WAY TOO NEGATIVE AND OBVIOUSLY DON’T KNOW WHAT REAL ROCK N ROLL IS ABOUT.

  5. I AM AN ADAM FAN NO MATTER WHAT!!!

  6. Yes. I LOVE Adam.! He Is My Everything. Nothing Is Gonna Make Him Loose. But Kris Is Getting In His Way.

  7. Glambertfan says:

    where is the video?

  8. Jennifer T says:

    I really think something was up with the audio….I will have to go back and look, but I think he ripped the ear piece out of his left ear at some point.

    I think had the audio system been spot on like it SHOULD have been, it would have sounded very different. Of course, Adam is Adam…I love anything he does, but I think sound tech was off.

    I suspected it during Gokey, but then I felt it really showed. I hope folks see that….er….hear it.

    • Jennifer

      I noticed the audio situation as well. And yes he did rip out the left ear piece. Just wondering if those were necessary. Did they affect his performance, not really. I have a feeling that Adam was a little tired tonight, or just plain fed up. Still too adorable. Rock on Adam!

      • I think he ripped out his ear piece because the awful background singer was off key and shouting over him and his beautiful notes. She was awful. I really hope the public noticed that and didn’t associate her screeching with Adam!

        • My husband & I were also talking about the horrible back up singers- I think something was definitely wrong with the sound tonight.

        • You’re right about that. Another here chiming in on how off Adam’s back-up singer was (as in out in left field with the sun in her eyes). And did you see his face when she hit that one particular note? Ouch! Contestant #4 making herself heard! Adam tried to compensate by backing off and softening his approach – but it didn’t do much good. She was off throughout. I say yea to Adam that he managed just fine in spite of her. Boy – how frustrating was that? Arguably the most important night of his life dependent upon some strange woman’s sense of pitch? I read she spent the entire evening Tweeting (both immediately before and right after). Maybe she should have tried actually singing instead of Tweeting about it.

          And I really have to hand it to Kris! His interpretation of ‘Heartless’ was masterful. Indeed better then the original. He sang it beautifully. Another ‘Sunshine’ moment there. Here’s hoping he makes it into the final along with Adam. They seem such good friends. And big whoop to Kara for putting Mr. Simon Legree in his place. “Have YOU ever tried arranging a song?” Bam!! Knockout! Kara for the win! Though I must say it was nice of Simon to remind people they have to vote. He sure underwent a transformation where Adam is concerned! If I’m remembering correctly – Simon’s vote was ‘no’ on putting Adam through to Hollywood. Said he was ‘too theatrical’.

          Bet he remembers THAT differently – especially as Adam is poised to become the most famous Idol contestant ever.

          • Another_admirer says:

            Reminder: in audtions, Kara turned to Simon and asked him what he thought THEN she said, all frustrated, after he said yes, that she was going to say yes. Kara and Simon also were the two who did not “get it” on the Ring of Fire. Throughout, Paula and Randy have seen his talent and his genius – in vocal talent, creativity, and performance.

            • AdamAddict says:

              The back up singer probably need seriously attention,that’s why she did what she did. And now, everybody talks about her. She did brilliant job! LOL!!!

              • AdamAdmirer says:

                COME ON – ENOUGH ABOUT THE BACK UP SINGER. NOBODY ELSE SEEMS TO BE TALKIING ABOUT THIS BUT YOU WANNABE CRITICS WHO CALL YOURSELVES GLAMBERTS AND FANS.

                ADAM DID AN AMAZING JOB ON BOTH OF THESE SONGS AND NO ONE ELSE ON THE PLANET COULD HAVE EVEN COME CLOSE. WHY DO YOU THINK BONO HAS NEVER GIVEN CLEARANCE BEFORE ADAM CAME TO THE SHOW? MY NEW FAVORITIE VIDEO IS ONE AND THE STUDIO VERSION IS EVEN BETTER.

                THINK BEFORE YOU ARE SO QUICK TO CRITICIZE NEXT TIME.

                ALSO, IT AMAZES ME THAT ADAM IS SO TALENTED AND CAN STILL BE SO HUMBLE TO COMPLIMENT THE OTHER CONTESTANTS THE WAY HE DID HERE – UNBELIEVABLE!

                ADAM IS A TRUE STAR – VOTE ADAM!

  9. I am a little disappointed with Adam’s two performances, out of all of the songs he could have done, I was not impressed with “Crying”…he seemed off tonight, not his usual self, he must have been tired from the hometown visit……He also shrieked too much, and screamed way more than was necessary, BUT i still voted for solid two hours for him……..WHERE’S MY ROCKER????

    • I have to agree with you….I have been a fan since Mad World but he’s screaming a little too much….c’mon Adam….show us your amazing voice…you don’t need to scream!

  10. Cryin’ is my FAVORITE from Adam, and I have been unable to choose a favorite up until now. All of his performances have been ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!! But, I have finally chosen a fav — GO ADAM!!! I really hope he sings Cryin on Tour so I can hear it LIVE!!! Love you Adam — I voted for 2 straight hours – no bathroom breaks or anything!! You’re my IDOL!!!

  11. ADAM-YOUR PERFORMANCE OFAEROSMITH WAS JUST OK. SORRY, BUT I DON’T LIKE THE TEMPO OF THIS. “ONE” IS TOO LONG OF A SONG TO DO IT JUSTICE. BUT,,,YOU WERE PERFECT, AS USUAL!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW ABOUT “SORRY SEEMS TO BE THE HARDEST WORD” BY ELTON JOHN. LOVE THAT TYPE OF TEMPO. ALSO, ANY ROLL.STONES, SOME BEATLES’, OTHER U2, BUT, BECAUSE U R SO AMAZING, I STILL VOTED FOR 2 STRAIGHT HRS.!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE YOU!! LOVE-PEACE-LOVE Gokey was bad, Chris was just ok. …….You are an icon!!!

    • glambertfan says:

      I agree “one” is too long of a song to do it justice.but how’s the feeling of he cut lyric “we’re one,but we’re not the same.”?

  12. I do hope Adam wins it, because he’s the only one left with a personality, but I do agree with some of the other comments that there’s just too much screaming and not enough singing from Adam tonight. I’m kind of amazed that none of the judges commented on it. Back in the first few Idol seasons, they were much harder on the contestants.

  13. wholelotta lambert says:

    I would rather listen to Adam on his worst night than any other artist at their best….he is that much better than everybody on the planet.

    • Marilyn Macey says:

      You are so right, he’s still the best on his worst night. The show hasn’t been aired in Asia yet – (another 5 hrs) but I watched the performance on YouTube. I did vote for him so many times through GIZMO & my regular phone. I did notice the back-up singers were out-of tune and loud, Adam literally had to pull his ear plugs off. Let’s not be hard on him, he deserves our vote no matter what. Adam must be really tired too beacuse of the grueling schedule – AI should be blamed for that. He’s still the best, vote for Adam!!!

      • AdamAddict says:

        I’m scared and worried a little. Some people said this was his worst night and compliment Kris!! Oh no no nope,I don’t like to hear that. I hope you guys will still vote for Adam only even think other 2 did better. I agreed with wholelotta lambert,100% though!

        All I know I love Adam no matter what and I think Adam was awesome like he always do! I just pray Adam going to final and win or I don’t think I can sleep for a long time. Traumatized for sure!!

  14. I had to watch from work on a crappy hospital tv. It was noisy there. I thought Adam’s One wasn’t so good. It was awesome at first, but that is a long song, and it was too chopped up. I LOVE that song, and didn’t see a place for the wailing. Don’t get me wrong, ADAM IS MY FAVORITE EVER. I also noticed that the background singer was totally covering over Adam. What was up with that ?!!!!! It made me pissy. Then, after the show, I voted for the entire two hours, though I did have to xray a few patients in there. When I went to ER, the other tech went and got the patient, and I was out of cell range, so I used the hospital phone. Man, I am really fast at dialing those numbers. I think in those 6-8 minutes that I waited for my patient, I dialed around 30 times. Then add in those other two hours. I just couldn’t sit by and let him not perform one last time. OH, and I got pretty good seats for the tour in Kansas City. I am taking my mom for her mother’s day present.

  15. Another_admirer says:

    Maybe I’m just getting too old!! Kara is driving me nuts. She insists on trying to peg Adam as “this” or “that” – as if she can tell HIM what he is! Adam is very diverse but she insists and keeps on about him being a rocker. Hopefully, he is NOT just a rocker, and tonight would be a good example as to why I say this. I hope we will see more of the sex appeal, charm, dance, the guy with passion and all those other things that we have loved about him for the past 2 months…… Do you think that maybe tonight he was a little skeeerd?

  16. Adamaddiction says:

    I thought ‘One’ was one of his best performances ever, unbelievable!!! So emotional and original.

    I was really ANGRY that the back up singer screeched over top of Adam’s beautiful voice, I think she was trying hard to keep up with him but let’s face it…. It is IMPOSSIBLE to keep up with ADAM!!

    He is the megastar we’ve been waiting 2 decades for.

  17. Leah Marie says:

    I had a problem with the backup singer on “Cryin” tonight!!!!! Out of tune and WAY TOO LOUD!!! I also agree about way too many high notes came in too early on both songs. I REALLY LOVE THE TENDER CONTROLLED STUFF FROM HIM MORE MOST OF THE TIME! I REALLY THINK ALL 3 GUYS WERE HAVING PROBLEMS TONIGHT! What were those things in their ears all of a sudden? Adam hated them I think!

    Anyway…..our Adam was still WAY BEYONG THE OTHER TWO again tonight! Hope you guys voted your little sore fingers off tonight!!!!!

  18. SakitSaPuwit says:

    I did not think this was his best night, but was amazing, i would have voted for him, if it was not for the people on this site that did not want to help me out figuring out how to do so…..

  19. Adam was stunningly awesome as always. I love real rock music and with his ultra dynamic voice, he just kills it each and every time. Adam will be an international rock star, no doubt about it.

  20. Ok, I commented a little while ago about the One performance. Well, I just went and watched it again. This time, it was on my very good surround sound/high definition recording and tv. OMG, what a difference that made. I had to watch it twice. I’m gonna go watch it again. This isn’t the first time, that the first impression at work wasn’t so hot, then I come home and WOW! It was awesome. His vocals are so damned beautiful. I’m addicted to him. He gets so into it! I can’t wait to hear the studio version, so the song will flow more, not cutting parts out.

    I LOVE Adam. He is now my favorite singer. I cannot WAIT to see him live. I am a 41 y/o man, and I haven’t been so excited about any performer ever.

    Do you ever hear a song, and not really appreciate it until you hear it many times? Well, it only takes once or twice to really start digging Adam’s versions of songs. MAN!!!! He’s THE best.

    Now, I will see if the version of Crying works for me on the second listen. Those background singers shouldn’t be turned up so loud.

    As far as Danny and Kris goes, I think Kris is better. Danny turns me off. Go listen to the Terrance Trent D’arby version of the song that he did on youtube. Danny ruined a great song.

    • Thanks for sharing, good comment!!

    • Jennifer T says:

      Absolutely! My first impressions of his performances were somewhat marred with irritation with sound tech and singers who have no clue that they are BACK GROUND SINGERS…..i.e. in the BACK GROUND…. but when you listen to it and tune those out….then you really hear him…..and are once again amazed.

      I loved them much more after a few listens.

      I too am an “older” Lambert fan…(born in the 70’s and I’ll leave it at that! lol)

      I just can’t get enough of this guy!

    • GlamGirlLee says:

      “Do you ever hear a song, and not really appreciate it until you hear it many times? ” Yes! Play that Funky Music” grew on me.

  21. I voted for the very first time of my life…..following your suggestion with Gizmo5 as I’m from HONG KONG! Although I only managed to get through twice within 1 hour & 10 mins before my comuter black out & deserted me!!! But I didn’t split vote (what for?? if you want Adam to win!) Thus Adam at least got 2 extra votes …lol!

    • Oh btw, could anyone put his number up on a top column or on a caption, so it would be easier for someone oversea like us can dial straight away?? Cos I spent at least 5 mins to search his number (I found it from the chatterbox, but since they chatted too much… lol, the number is gone so quickly!)

  22. I agree the background singer messed things up, but Adam was awesome as usual. Can’t wait for the studio version!

  23. ryunkin says:

    I agree about the backup singer, she sounded like an out-of-tune crow and I was quite disappointed with Adam’s songs.

    I also have no idea what Simon Cowell is doing in the music business except to supply and count the money. He’s obviously blind to talent and hasn’t the slightest idea about how to put together a song. Picking One was an atrocious selection, but like I’ve said, it doesn’t surprise me.

    Song selection, however, wasn’t the only problem with the show. Most Idol song renditions are too short and rarely have a beginning, middle and end, so they either sound disconnected or disjointed and rarely make sense. Tonight, both of his songs fit that category.

    And guys, Adam doesn’t screech. He’s a countertenor and all of these guys hit inhumanly high notes. If you want to listen to what I’m talking about google operatic countertenors. They all sound like the church lady and they’re horrible. Adam has taken the Aunt Mary out of his voice and he actually hits his high notes with tone. They don’t.

    • And amen to that! Countertenors are rare to begin with – and Adam is rarer still. He sings in a mezzo-soprano range without sounding like he’s a hair’s breath away from breaking into the ‘Habanera’ aria from Carmen. Not dissing opera, mind (I’m a mezzo myself) – but I’ve never been a fan of operatic voices per se (especially male voices). I prefer edgier fare. The only operatic-ish countertenor I flat out adored was Klaus Nomi (who was more of a performance artist than opera singer). But then Nomi was unique – an entity unto himself – in the way Adam is unique; though the two are not remotely alike in either presentation or approach. Still – Nomi fascinated, as Adam fascinates. It’s the total package – look, sound, attitude: Brightly colored birds singing in jeweled trees warmed by lush cinnamon breezes. It’s such an amazing sight – I simply cannot look away.

    • Marilyn Macey says:

      I totally agree with you, Adam doesn’t screech as he’s only hitting high notes unlike other contestants. Do like U2 but the song ‘one’ was meant as a plea/support for Bono’s humantarian work. Great lyrics though and frankly I think Adam did rather well for what was given to him. The back-up singers were totally were in their own world – do they get to hear themselves when they sing??? Anyway, I voted from M’sia for Adam before/after watching on Youtube as AI is aired 12hrs later, just want Adam to win.

      • AdamAddict says:

        The one who screeching was that back up singer! Shut the hell up,woman!!

  24. GlamGirlLee says:

    I was so distracted by the backup singers in the beginning. Were they trying to ruin his performance? Watching the clip again, I think I would have really enjoyed the beginning if it hadn’t been the screechy noise from the backup singers. How did he manage to even get through the song with all the interferences? I liked the second half of the song though. I am not sure what I make of One…
    On a different note, did you guys have trouble getting through? The power texting (texting to group) thing didn’t work so well. It stopped going through after a couple of hundred. 🙁 I had changed my service feature to unlimited messaging just for this! Toll free lines were pretty busy too. I don’t think I have never had so many calls not go through while dialing for him this season. I am in California.

    • GlamGirlLee says:

      Oops, I meant to say “I don’t think I have ever had so many calls not go through due to the line being busy while dialing for him this season.”

    • I couldn’t get through at all on my land lines- tried and tried for half an hour and only got through three times. I kept getting an “all circuits busy” message. Switched to my cell and voted for the next hour & a half with very few busy signals. Probably voted about 350 times. Love you Adam!!!!!!!

    • GlamGirlLee says:

      Went back and checked my texting history. ~830 text messages did go through not ~200. It is just that so many started show as pending around 9:17PM and nothing got sent after that. Those that I texted between 9:17-9:41 didn’t even show up as having been sent/queued as of 9:41PM. I kept texting for a while until I gave up and switched to calling around 10PM on my cell phone. There were many busy signals, more than my landline got. The text messages that were pending did go through eventually and were marked as having been sent in that earlier time frame (9:41 – 10PM) even though they were still showing as pending when I checked around 11PM. So you *can* text to a group. I just do not know what happened to the texts I sent between 9:17- 9:41PM. Thanks for the voting tip to thedish(?) t.he day before! I am not a Tween and don’t text much, usually.

  25. tonto55 says:

    Adam rocked the house tonight with both songs, regardless of the backer’s vocals. Pure magic! And this is from one who has never listened to Aerosmith and loves U2.

  26. Were the producers experimenting with the sound system hence the earpieces? The sound engineers mixing this kinda messed up however, our guy ADAM managed it well. The judges know all about this but it didn’t matter to them, they gushed all over the place like little kids tasting chocolate for the first time lol. Hot damn son you’re amazing, can’t wait for the studio versions. BTW, listen to Adam with HEADPHONES, it’s amazingly superior to any speakers you have wow.

  27. hine100 says:

    Fabulous website, xcellent & uptodate info asap. Credit to the Web Master, Great Job!!!!

    And you have picked the right horse for the winning post.

  28. aaaaaaand one more thing…let him sing the full versions please ’cause these condensed snippets aren’t enough!!!!! more more more more more

    • GlamGirlLee says:

      Totally agree! Now I realize I didn’t know what to make of “One” because it felt like there were 2 separate parts to it. The song needs more time to make it sound cohesive!

  29. I loved that Adam did an Aerosmith song this week. Last week’s Crokey version had traumatised me and, as a long-time Aerosmith lover that was unforgivable. I would have loved it if Adam had sung *Angel* rather than Crying which – imo is one of Aero’s weeker options. However, Adam sang it beautifully -despite the background wailer. Those wonderful true-rock so-callled screetches were beautifully on tune, right on cue and effortless. A lovely reward to everyone like me who was still shuddering from the Gokey after-effects and a real masterclass by Adam to Danny on *how to sing a rock song like it should be sung*.

    • AdamAddict says:

      The way Danny danced was like Adam did when Adam sang “play that funky music” Copycat will always be a copycat!!

      • Danny Offkey becomes a laughing stock at the Jimmy Kimmel show when he show his clip of screech & compared him with a youtube clip of a screaming chinese women who’d been rejected to get on the plane….so funny!

          Offkey Dorky is actually doomed no matter what. I almost feel sorry for the guy. He seems like a nice human being although not my cup of tea. That shriek was heard around the world and is now a recorded history, and Vote for the Worst is voting for him. That’s not something to be proud of.

      • Well, Danny did say during one of the shows that he had been watching other people, but he would rather not say who. And if you look at Adam’s face when he says that, I think Adam already knew then what Danny was doing. That was the elimination night from The Rat Pack week.

  30. come guys pllz don’t let adam lose to kriss it can’t happened :'( come on voooooooooooote 4 adam more pllllllllllz he must win plllllllllllllllz the difference is only 2% between him and kriss and now danny’s fans gonna be with him ,, do u see the pic it sad plllllllz vooooooooooooooooooooooote

  31. ‘actually i couldn’t have chosen this song for him..But let’s just respect what’s his song choice..
    he’s already Old, He already know what’s he’s doing..and besides, He gave His Heart and Everything in him to this song and the most important thing is the Judges loved it..let’s just be grateful for it because for sure those comments will help the people to vote..I know American Idol Finals wouldn’t be that Exciting if Adam would be out of the competition..Let’s just pray..hehehe..But for sure, After this Competition,Adam will be Successful..

  32. Kathleen says:

    Adam is always so wonderful during his performances…perfection.

  33. AdamAddict says:

    It’s not only the contenstants who can’t sleep tonight,I can’t too. I’m so nervous!!

  34. I have loved Adam from Day one.
    But last night–something was off with him.

    Just intuition, but i have felt for a while now that this whole situation, and its implications, has only now started to dawn on him.

    He is now world famous, with all of the scrutiny and cruelty that comes with it.

    He is a special, sweet spirit–I pray he makes it.

  35. hi, i am sorry but i am relly sad. if simon told people to vote it’s meen usully that adam is in truobel.

    i hope with all my heart that i am wrong.

    Adam is the most talented idol of the history of the show’ and i hope he will win.

    • I don’t think Simon necessarily thinks Adam is in trouble. I just think that he realizes from past seasons that that this is the time upsets happen. When fans are really scared that their contestant is going to get voted off, their frantic voting can outpace the voting for a contestant that is doing extremely well if the fans get complacent. When all the judges are sitting on the panel telling someone they are a sure shot to make it to the finals, viewers don’t feel as motivated to vote. I think Simon was just trying to remind everyone that they still have to vote to see Adam in the finals and that he deserves it. I hope it worked!!

  36. Sun&Stars says:

    I was so stunned over the screw-up by the background singers. I felt so sorry for Adam. He pulled it off but you know his stomach had to be fluttering from the pressure and then to hear them try to completely over-shadow his performance-how awful! Kudo’s to Simon for telling people to vote for Adam. The judges know how critical it is at this point. They also know that Adam is the one who deserves to win. I’m going to really miss my weekly dose of Adam after next week is over. By the way, I just love that he wears cowboy boots. I look forward to seeing him every week but always look forward to seeing what type of boot he is wearing that week. It makes him appear so much more manly and sexy!

    • AdamAddict says:

      I’m gonna buy a pair of boots now! LOL!! No,seriously!!

      • GlamGirlLee says:

        Me, too! I am not kidding either. I think cowboy boots can work for girls, too. I am wearing black toenail polish in the spirit of Adam-support.

        • AdamAddict says:

          And l looked for my eyeliner. Haven’t use that for a long time and now I wear it every single day! LOL!!!

  37. I agree with many of you Adam Lambert fans that the backup singers were a little off, but if you hear Adam sing the song.. it is absolutely SPECTACULAR… He just knows how to use his voice with the emotions and support them all. I also think that Adam is a Rock Star in the making and i will be a loyal follower no matter what. He knows what he is as an Artist, as a Person, and also as a Performer. He will be a World Idol.

    Anyways guys,.. vote for ADAMANIACS as our Fan Club name… I was the first to suggest it!! lol
    I think it goes to show how we are so committed to him and that he will be the next AMERICAN IDOL SEASON 8 because not that he deserves it, but because he EARNED it!!!

    ADAM ROCKS!!!

  38. Marilyn Macey says:

    I just watched AI 2x, his rendition of ‘One’ and ‘Cryin’ was awesome. It just gets better as you listened to it repeatedly, sure the studio version would be splendid. So, people I hope all you voted for Adam like crazy today, I did!

  39. I THINK EVERYTHING ADAM DOES IS FANTASTIC! IF HE IS NOT IN THE FINALS, IDOL IS IN
    FOR A DOWNHILL SLIDE! I VOTED 2 HOURS SOLID AND I REALLY HOPE HE MAKES IT THROUGH. I LIKE CHRIS BUT DANNY IS BORING AND REMINDS ME OF TAYLOR HICKS! DO YOU REALLY WANT TO LISTEN TO THAT? EVERYONE IS RIGHT ABOUT THAT AWFUL BACKGROUND SINGER. IT WAS HARD TO CONCENTRATE ON ADAM BECAUSE SHE TOTALLY SCREAMED OVER HIM. I HAVE TO SAY MY FAVORITE PART IN CRYING WAS AT THE END WHEN HE WAS HOLDING THE LAST NOTE. THERE WAS SOMETHING ABOUT THE WAY HE WAS STANDING , LEANING BACK IN THOSE COMBAT BOOTS!!!! HE CAN ENTERTAIN LIKE NO OTHER AND LOOK FABULOUS DOING IT!!! ADAMS’S GOT A KILLER VOICE, GREAT STYLE, GREAT HAIR AND A BEAUTIFUL SMILE!! I HOPE AMERICA GETS IT RIGHT!!! THE SHOW MUST GO ON BUT IT WILL ONLY BE IF ADAM IS IN THE WINNERS CIRCLE IN THE END!!

  40. WOW. Again, Adam nailed this song!!! Not familiar with the original version until now, and I love love the notes, lower ones, and higher, falsetto notes towards the end.
    I’ve written a long comment on his first song. For Simon talking like that, up from the early days, he is very much ‘enamored’ by Adams talent, like all of us, and for him to ‘plead’ that we all need to VOTE VOTE. just shows that he indeed knows TRUE TALENT WOW love Simon,
    LOVE ADAM

  41. I think Simon realises just how great an artist Adam is, and that’s why he reminded everyone that if they want to see him in the finals, they would have to vote. Hopefully, his reminder helped everyone remember to vote like crazy to see him again next week.

    I think both “One” and “Cryin” were good. Not his best (might be an off night?) but even so, Adam’s already so good that “not his best” is still very good. Kind of like his Ring of Fire performance – I was bewildered the first time I heard it, but the more I listened to it, the more I grew to like it – that’s how it is with Adam’s version of “One” and “Cryin.” The back up singer sure was annoying when he was singing “Cryin”. What was she trying to do, overshadow Adam’s voice?

    I dearly hope Adam will be in the finals. It would be simply too awful for words if he were to be eliminated.

  42. Okay, I thought I was the only one, but the backup singer…who that heck hired her…I would have turned around and sign her off the stage…SHE WAS TERRIBLEEEE………

    Adam was not on his best tonight, he was better than the other two, but performance wise, I think he can do better… at this point, he got my votes, cause I know what he is capable… HE IS THE WINNER NO MATTER IF HE GETS THE FINAL AWARD OR NOT. So, I guess we will see. Either way, I’m buying every song he did and anything that comes out… cause I love that voice. Think about it, if Chris or Danny wins… just base on their looks, who will buy… NOT ME. Adam has both looks (very easy on the eye) and a JYNORMUS voice. The combination is what is going to cell… cause if Carrie Underwood looked like Fantasia with that voice…well you know my answer to that….

    Good luck ADAM.

  43. I thought Adam was great and I voted for almost 3 hours non-stop until it seemed CA voting came online and the line was totally jammed. I was amazed, because I kept getting through 99% of the time, so I am a tad worried, because this would just stink if he wasn’t in the final. I hope that Adam will make the final and I will be voting as long as I can, and I remember last year I couldn’t get through once for Cook in the final! I enjoy hearing their message!

  44. I did power texting because I was at a professional baseball game. I’m happy to say it worked well and thank you to all who suggested this. I didn’t see Adam’s performance until way after the voting was over. I thought he was beautiful once again. Praying hard for that guy!

  45. I am still upset about that background singer. I am concerned that the general public will not be able to disassociate Adam from that awful screaching female that tried to over-sing him. I am very surprised that the judges did not comment on her. They criticize everything else, why not a that type of interference? What’s up with that?

    I also think Adam knew it that she had compromised his song. If you roll back the video to his first approach to the Judges, he pulls off the second ear phone and shakes his head with such expression that you know he is making a silent comment… I also think he knew what was happening while she was singing and that is why he changed his register in the middle of the song… to drown her out. What was interesting is that when he pulled the first ear phone off in the middle of the song, we didn’t hear the background singer anymore. Could that have been a pre-set signal to the band to remove the background track and shut her up?

    I also want to comment on dialIdol. Last night may folks in this chat room were concerned about the results shown on dialIdol last night. We went to the sight to see how it works. The stats that you see there were based on counts they receive from folks using dialidol software to dial in, not the actual count from the phone companies. I also read somewhere that AI knows when calls are generated from these sites and they do not count the votes from them. I am not sure if this a true statement… anybody know?

    • GlamGirlLee says:

      From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DialIdol

      “Power dialing
      According to the American Idol producers, monitors are in place to identify and remove “power dialers,” which use technical enhancements to their phone systems to allow for multiple votes.[19] DialIdol is not a power dialer, according to Fox spokeswoman Jennifer Sprague. “Using a modem dialer is not the same as ‘power dialing.’ A person manually using a redial button on a standard telephone can generate as many call attempts as a modem dialer.”[1]”

      Not sure if anyone checked with the referenced spokes person Jennifer Sprague if such a person exists. But it does make sense. You can manually speed-dial faster (I’ve tried), you just get a little more tired.

  46. CristinaSSK says:

    I’m from to Brazil and i love Adam. He is a winner and a great singer. Good luck for you. Please, try and come to Brazil. Kiss

  47. We don’t want Kris in the final because ALL of Danny’s voters will vote for him over Adam. If Kris is out, most of his voters could probably favour Adam. Whatever happens it will be more important than ever to vote next week. My feeling is that Simon has seen how the voting is split, which is why he feels safe in going public saying Adam will win. Good news is that Allison’s fans will be voting for Adam.

    Whtever happens – vote like mad, especially if Danny goes out this week.

  48. Oh and PS – check out the video of Aerosmith’s “What it Takes” from Pump, and think of Adam doing it !!

    To people who say Adam “screeches” – just 4 words, Steven Tyler, Robert Plant. !!

  49. TRUE THING: ADAM MAY NOT GET ALL THE VOTES IN AMERICA; BUT HE IS BACKED UP FROM EVERY CORNER OF THE WORLD!!!! WE WON’T BE ABLE TO VOTE; BUT REST ASSURED; WE WILL BE WAITING FOR HIS WORLD TOUR. PLEASE MAKE GERMANY YOUR FIRST STOP!!!!!!

  50. I AM SO WORRIED ABOUT ADAM TONIGHT. THE LAST HOUR THAT I CALLED IN, I GOT THROUGH EVERY TIME. THE LINES SHOULD’VE BEEN BUSY AT LEAST PART OF THE TIME. DID ANY OF YOU HAVE A HARD TIME GETTING THROUGH OR DID YOUR CALLS GO THROUGH RIGHT AWAY?? LET’S ALL HOPE FOR THE BEST. HE’S JUST GOT TO WIN!!!!!

  51. GOOD OR BAD?? COME ON PPL ADAM IS WAY BETTER THAN GOKEY OR ALLEN!!! THEY ARE JUST TOO PLAIN AND COMMON. PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZ VOTE 4 ADAM AND MAKE MY FINALE COME TRUE!!!

  52. AdamAddict says:

    I can’t sleep. My heart and stomach aching! I’m so worried and scared. I never feel like this before to other A.I contestants. Last year I love Archie but not like this. I want Adam to win! My god, waiting is killing me!!

    Plzzzzzzzzzzz,let him through!!!

    • AdamAddict says:

      It’s 4:20am now. I better go to sleep, at least I’ll try. I hope I dream about Adam! LOL!!! Sweetdream!!

  53. ADAM FREAKING ROCKED THE HOUSE DOOOOOOOOOWN!!!!!

  54. Both “One” and “Cryin” were absolutely brilliant. Adam is consistently amazing. Let’s show him our support as true fans. Keep voting madly for our darling Adam. He is truly deserving of the win, and that is an understatement.

    Adam, you are absolutely wonderful!!!

    Congratulations on your continued success! Your star will soar and soar!!

  55. IMPORTANT: ADAM COULD BE IN DANGER!!!

    I was just checking out our competition-kris allenation w/e so they are planning a huge massive operation to make kris the final winner, its called OPERATION DING DONG!!!!….

    http://www.krisallenation.com/ here is the link 2 know more about it and try to come out with a BETTER ATTACK 4 THIS…Come on fans Lambert deserves the crown so we need massive voting!!! This is not about friendship anymore this is about the dream of OUR MAN!!! so SPREAD THE WORD S THAT WE CAN FIGHT BACK!!!

    PS: THEy are using GIZMO TO VOTE..BEWARE.

  56. I truely believe that Adam is the most innovative recording artist to come around in the last 30 years. He can sing ANY genre and his vocals are FLAWLESS! If you haven’t heard him sing “Come To Me, Bend To Me” go to Google and search for “Adam Lambert Brigadoon” and select the first result, it will take your breath away! Also the “G” note he hits at 0:56 of “Heaven On Their Minds” is ridiculous! What most irritates me are those people who say he “Screams”. If you want to hear what SCREAMING is go back and listen to Danny at the end of “Dream On” but be warned it will make your ears bleed. Adam uses a vocal technique called “Belting” and it was first introduced into Rock Music by Ian Gillan of Black Sabbath. There are very FEW male vocalists who can achieve what Adam can do and his so called “Screams” are nothing more than hitting EXTREMELY high notes. He is by far IMHO the best singer, performer, and entertainer of our generation!

  57. I cannot BELIEVE how many comments I’m seeing on message boards from other COUNTRIES who support ADAM! He truely has a WORLD WIDE FAN BASE! I’m seeing comments from CANADA, ENGLAND, (all over Europe actually), PHILIPPINES, JAPAN, NEW ZEALAND, and the list goes on… Can you imagine how many VOTES he would get if the entire planet were allowed to vote? I’t not too far fetched to assume that he could generate 100 Million votes next week. If you throw in the other countries I’m seeing a Billion votes for ADAM! I’m not discounting Kris Allen at all, I think he deserves to be in the finale but can you really see Kris doing a WORLD WIDE TOUR? Let’s face it… Adam is here to stay!

  58. Adamazing says:

    Lyni50: Adam’s a winner no matter what!! If he doesn’t win, it truely is a” Mad World”.and all will see “The Tracks of My Tears”as I will be “Cryin'”,cuz I gotta “Whole Lotta Love” for this guy! But I’m “Feeling good”, cuz he’s the “One” and Adam fans will have their “Satisfaction”! We were “Born to be Wild”, so we will vote our fingers off, and not let him go down in a “Ring of Fire”!! It’s as plain as “Black and White”.. Vote for Adam fans, so we can “Play that Funky Music” forever!!

  59. Guys, if you would listen again to his two (2) performances (i suggest you use earphones and just listen to his voice),you will be amazed how GREAT he did !! He’s perfomances ROCKS!!! Also, i think there is something wrong with the sound sys ?…plus that back up singer whom i thought wanted to out do him? Good thing he still pull this off!!! Awesome!! I pray everyday that you will be the this year’s American Idol!! Im praying also for your success after AI… God loves you!!

    your adamaddict fan from the Philippines!

  60. … also i’ll be the first in line to buy his CDs!! Yehey!! i want my daily dose of Adam’s music…i can’t function well until i hear his voice!! OMG!

  61. For the finals, I do hope he would sing a soulful song, He is certainly a rock star but I am sure Adam can also sing a ballad, or a soulful song like “Come Home’. It certainly will also show his vocal prowess and range, not to mention it obviously has some pretty serious message! If he needs two songs again then one saong can be one of Queen’s!

  62. If all his worldwide fans could vote Adam would sail into the winner slot. I’ve noticed the word going out on the net that there could be a major backlash against Adam because he’s had too much exposure (from the judges, media, Perry’s cape etc). Man, I hope theres a huge BACK-back lash from his US fans. Vote him into space! He’s out of this world as a singer. He MUST win.

  63. adamluver says:

    did u hear that background singer? she messed up the whole song!!!

  64. I can describe How much Adam like me…it is incredible singer, the most talent person ever had American Idol…Me encanta , I cant vote in Costa Rica…
    HEY GUYS PLEASE KEEP VOTING…ADAM DESERVES TO WIN…..ME ENCANTAS ADAM

  65. 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!!

  66. ” Change is Gonna Come’

    Adam–the performance of that song belongs among the greatest performances in show business.

    Passionate..beautiful..powerful.

    Thank you Adam–for all of the joy, and letting us be witnesses to the birth of a superstar.

    May God bless you every day of your life.
