So, I have been following American Idol the last couple of weeks. I stay away when they do their nationwide search, which I think airs only so they can create The American Idol Freak Show; I don't like to watch people make fools of themselves just to get on TV.
I think that's sad.
But now that they are full-on into competition, I have decided the show is over for me; at least as it exists now. I think it needs to be retitled The Adam Lambert Show.
I think they should declare him the winner now, and then spend the next however many weeks, just letting him sing every show.
I mean, who else can take Michael Jackson, Johnny Cash and Smokey Robinson, and sing each one, make each one their own, and do so effortlessly?
I mean, who?
Now, as an aside, Carlos missed The Adam Lambert Show last night, so I was telling him how much I enjoyed his rendition of Tracks Of My Tears, and how much Smokey enjoyed it, because as soon as it was done Smokey Robinson lead the standing ovation.
Carlos said, Who's Smokey Robinson?
Smokey Robinson! The Motown Sound! The Sound of young America! The Dee-troit sound! I say, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Man! Shop Around! The best things in life are free....but you can give 'em to the birds and the bees, I need mo-ney....that's what I want!
He actually shrugged, and then muttered something about Chopin. I try to educate him and I get Chopin!
