Okay, confession time. I am an American Idol fan. There. I've said it. And while I'm at it, summer isn't summer without So You Think You Can Dance. Now you know my two secrets. So, while I'm on a roll, I'm admitting that I was mesmerized by Adam Lambert's rendition of "Ring of Fire"on AI last night. It was sort of a creepy delivery, but I was captivated by the arrangement and his incredible vocals. I was not a fan of his version of "Satisfaction", but last night showed just how unique and gutsy this singer is. And has anyone noticed how much this kid looks like Elvis. I believe, that underneath the Richard Alpert eyeliner, black fingernail polish, and symetrical haircut is a good-looking kid with a great smile. Like Kelly Clarkson, Adam possesses an awesome vocal instrument. Wish he could simply do his musical theatre thing, instead of this goth drama. I would pay good money for a CD of Adam singing Broadway tunes. I wonder how he would fair with opera? I know...enough of this silliness and back to the easel.
