***UPDATED AGAIN WITH NEW PHOTO*** I will be updating this throughout the day, but here’s the video for Adam’s performance of Starlight – GREAT video in HD! Damn, but he looks good!!!
Here’s the video for “Little Lies” with Adam, Kris, and David Cook. Wow, how great to see all three of these guys together!
This first photo was sent in by Eva – thanks Eva!!!
UPDATE – It’s Friday evening, and I’m finally home from work and have been able to watch the show and view the videos (no sound on my computer at work!) I hope everyone has been able to watch and listen to one or the other, because Adam’s performance here is something truly special. Yes, David and Kris were good, but nothing, I repeat nothing, compared to Adam. Firstly, Adam looks STUNNING – very reimiscient of Tracks of My Tears, only more casual. Very handsome, restrained, totally put-together look that is 180 degrees from his concert outfit. I love both looks, just proof of Adam’s versitility. Adam is a genius when it comes to matching his outfits with his performances, and once again, the two today were in perfect harmony.
As for the music, I love Starlight, but as many of you have already commented on below, this is a very stripped down, changed-up version. Adam’s voice is so clear and pure and perfect, it’s like crystal. Yes, there is a slight hitch in a note or two at the very beginning, but once he gets into the song, it’s flawless. Adam is so far above the other guys (much as I do love David Cook) that there is really no comparison. Adam doesn’t just entertain, he takes us to a different place – a magical, faraway place like a dream, but it’s a waking dream, and all we can see and hear is this beautiful creature with this beautiful voice. It was a totally restrained performance – none of the “theatrics” or so-high-they’re-unholy notes, just pure, controlled perfection. Kris, to me, is mellow and laid-back, which is fine. But this controlled performance of Adam’s, when we know how powerful and let-loose he CAN be, is so much more impressive to me. It’s like the difference between a pleasure horse, which was born and bred to be a pleasure horse, and the taming of a wild stallion into a show horse. The former is nice, sure, but the latter is breathtaking. Now maybe Adam was just saving his voice for tonight’s concert, I don’t know, but in any case, it was genius, and it was heaven.
