Since Jay Leno seems to be totally obsessed with Adam, maybe he remembers this too? He already met Adam before American Idol made him famous! A couple of years ago, the Los Angeles cast of Wicked performed on his show – and a youtube clip of this performance has surfaced (thankyou LibraLamb7 for the link!).
The song is ‘One Short Day’, and is the scene where the witches of Oz are going to see the Wizard in the Emerald city. Stephanie Block and Kendra Kassebaum are the main performers, and Adam is – in his own words – in the ensemble, in the back. He’s starting off on the far left, dancing with a girl, and wearing a green hat, a blue coat and purple-ish pants. Plus, he’s spotting the most adorable little moustache, glasses and a goatee. At 0:37 there’s a really good shot of him, and after that, he kind of gets lost in the group dance.
So funny to see him dancing and acting here! Would be interesting if Jay actually remembers somehow – but that’s not likely at all, since Adam wasn’t more than one of many dancers. How things have changed, Jay’s covering some Adam related material in nearly every show and now he is having him over as one of his main guests tomorrow night! Looking forward to a great show!
