The excitement was building as Part 2 of the “American Idol-Best Mentor EVER” show got closer and closer with none other than OUR very own Adam Lambert!!

I can honestly say, I WAS SPEECHLESS, with tears in my eyes! All I wanted was for him to surpass all the expectations, and man did he ever. I felt like a mom wanting my child to hit that perfect note, especially after his infamous “live” performance that many people did not like. I know they were out there this evening wanting him to fail again, but that was not an option on THIS evening. THIS evening belonged to Mr. Adam Lambert, The King of the modern Glam Gods. It was on THIS night that the planets aligned, and then fate stepped in and we were forever changed as Adam Lambert fans. I, personally, will never be the same.
I was transformed back to a year ago when the butterflies took over my stomach from excitement and nerves. I found myself holding my breath as he started, and then just as quickly, that beautiful voice began to do it’s job and I was left mesmerized. Every ounce of that performance was breathtaking. From the sound of his voice, to the lasers shooting around the fog, to his gorgeous stage presentation, he left nothing to the imagination. He laid everything out there for all the world to take in.
I must say that the words to that song could not have been a better fit for him at this point in his career. Not only to have the opportunity to return to the place where this all literally began but also to be able to say to all of the people watching, “Whataya Want From Me?”, was perfect. This performance will be the one time that I think those lyrics will hit home the most. I know I melt every time I see that smile when he sings, “thanks for loving me…”. I cannot imagine not loving him. The people that watch this show though, season to season, are a huge part of the people that make up the lovers/haters of Adam. I, as well as Adam, know you either “get him” or you don’t. I like to choose to focus on the lovers of Adam, but I do know that there are haters out there waiting to watch him fail. Unfortunately for them, it did NOT happen tonight!! I also would like to think that his performance tonight just might convert some of those haters to the lovers side. Regardless, I can only hope that every single person was as visually, vocally, and emotionally satisfied as I was.
That, our dear American Idols, is how you OWN a performance. All I can say, is that I am SO PROUD to be an ADAM LAMBERT FAN.
