Below is the high quality video and article, MP3 is on the music player on your right hand side (#19). Pictures of his performance below the article. Watch closely at Paula’s reaction at 2:04 on this video. That’s exactly how millions of fans felt at that exact same moment.
I had to watch this again before writing, just to make sure I wasn’t imagining how good this was. OK, I watched it two more times, and listened twice without watching just to make sure the visuals weren’t distracting me. It’s official. When Adam performs, my eyes are riveted to the screen and my mouth is agape.
The suit, the slicked back hair….as expected, he changed his look up again and made a breathtaking impact once more. Adam is the smartest contestant I’ve ever seen on Idol. He is full of originality, innovativeness, and ingenuity. It is no surprise that Adam was the only contestant who got to talk before he sang. He told Ryan that since he already did a disco song, this time he wanted to connect emotionally. He most assuredly achieved this goal tonight!
This performance will get positive feedback from the masses. Those who are not diehard Adam fans seem to only like him when he slows down his performances and dresses like he dressed tonight. The rest of us know better. It’s a shame that people are still overwhelmed by the rocker/emo/scene side of Adam, which is just as incredible. The guy can do it all, and do it all well. No wonder so many of us are in awe of his capabilities!
Adam started out being a theatrical performer. He was used to the audience being far away, and belting out a song with no connection to them. How far he has come over the course of this reality show!!! Currently, there is no question that Adam can now make us feel the passion and fervor of any song he sings. Tonight, he took a popular song, sung it a totally new way, and made us part of the story. You could actually feel his sorrow and anguish over an unrequited love. When he sang, ‘my tears of love are a waste of time’; you could literally feel his distress and torment. Of course along the way, he added his signature Adam runs, but nothing was over the top or incongruent to the song. Everything he did with this song vocally was perfect. Adam, if we can’t have you, we don’t want NOBODY, baby!
