So this week on Idol, Adam Lambert was the mentor. It was Elvis week. On Tuesday, each contestant got one-on-one time with Adam and he actually had some good advice to give the idols. Some performances were really good.

Like Crystal:

She’s been the most consistent throughout the competition so far.

Most others were mediocre. I gotta say, I haven’t been very impressed with anyone else. I like Michael but he has consistency issues. I think they’re both great singers and would like to see them in the finals. They could sing “I got you babe”. Crystal could bring her carpet… It’ll be magical. For true.

Wednesday was the boot-out show and since the judges used the save last week (on Michael), two idols were leaving tonight.

Then Adam performed and he did awesome. The lights, the effects, the song, the performance.

So it’s official.

I declare Adam Lambert the winner of Season 9.

That sums it up in a nutshell. For those who witnessed his performance at the AMA’s on Sunday night, you know what I’m talking about. Some say he was lewd, some say he was fantastic. Lots of opinions on both sides of the fence.

 

Me? I think the singing was classic Adam. I think the performance will definitely get him press, which is probably a plus. I was a little shocked, I’ll admit. Sometimes a LOT shocked (insert faux oral-sex reference here). But if that’s the persona he wants to portray, well, who are we to stop him? He has the pipes to carry him through all kinds of shock-and-awe theatrics. He can pretty much do whatever he wants on stage and his fans will love him regardless (or in spite of) his sexy antics. The boy can sing. Do I care if he was a little over the top at the AMA’s? Well, I don’t blame him. Did I enjoy the shocking bits? Not really.  Will it make me stop being a fan? Nope. Do I think less of him now? I think I’m conflicted on this one. I mean, I knew he was glam, knew he was rockstar material, knew he was a bit of a rebel, knew he was gay, knew he was very sexual, knew he liked to live outside the box. Did I think he was THAT much of button-pusher? No sirree bob!! So I guess I feel like I’ve been fooled. Like a dad that suddenly finds out his daughter’s boyfriend is really the school bad-ass and everyone knew it but him.

Yes, I was shocked. Will I continue to be a fan? Sure. I guess I’m wondering how much worse can he get? What will he do next? I feel like we skipped the foreplay and went straight to the in-your-face, force-to-be-reckoned-with, Lambert-and-his-manhood, Adamgasm Glamapalooza. Then again, maybe Idol was foreplay (Woohoo Seacrest). And if this is just the beginning of Adam’s career and highly-sexed repertoire, well, so be it. I’m game.

I think the world needed a wake up call. And boy, did they get it last night. I think we all needed a cigarette after that one…

The Elfster site is a great way to organize a Secret Santa gift exchange. You add people to the group, provide instructions (i.e. cash limit), you can specify exceptions (to avoid having someone pick someone they don’t know or don’t like), everyone is able to add gift ideas to their wish list – it’s awesome.

If someone in your famly drives a lot, and they don’t yet have a GPS, that would make a great gift. There will be tons of sales on these near the holidays. I love our GPS. It’s awesome.

Ok. So everyone’s probably seen the leaked pics from the Details magazine cover and photo shoot that got quickly yanked from various web sites. Now, Adam’s made it very clear that he plays for the other team. So, what could this photo shoot possibly be about?

For women: Is it to make women think he possibly plays for both teams? Which would make him more attractive in that “pick me pick me” kind of way? Or that if the Right Woman came around, he could be persuaded to switch? Girls, you know who you are and you know you have this in the backs of your minds. So cliché. But from what I’ve seen posted on the web in response to those pics, the cliché apparently still works. So predictable ladies… 🙂

For straight men: Is it to make guys relate to Adam? If he’s cool, you can be cool too? If you had awesome hair, painted your nails and could sing better than Steven Tyler, this coud be you! Or are they just looking at the naked woman in the pic and not Adam?

For gay men: Is that photo shoot a copout? Is it lying? Is it giving in to The Business? I’m not a gay man so have no idea how it’ll be viewed.

For me (straight woman): He’s a good looking guy and has that steamy, sultry thing going on. I love his voice – there is no question that this guy can sing. I’m really looking forward to his album and want him to succeed. It would be cool if a world-class star would come out of our generation. There was Elvis, Michael Jackson, Madonna… I actually think Adam Lambert may be the next big star. And that’s exciting because we’ll be here to watch it all!

Either way, he’s doing all the right things. His first album is not even out yet and everyone is talking about him. I also think that the leaked pics were a publicity stunt for the new movie 2012 and his new single. But you know what – I couldn’t care less. That’s what is supposed to happen. More Adam please.

Adam Lambert will be a superstar. He dominated last year’s American Idol show and although he didn’t win, he’ll very likely be the biggest star to come out of the AI empire. My sister Sue and I went to the concert last night in Hamilton. Read on for the mortfying details.

As many of you already know, saying that Sue is a fan is quite the understatement. She had been planning this night for several months, including having a “Montreal Glamberts ❤ Adam” sign, copies of the Rolling Stone featuring Adam on the cover, the blue eye shadow and required Adam-fan dark nail polish and concert wear. “Glamberts” I am told are the glamourous fans of Adam Lambert, or some such group. I’m sure Sue will correct me if this is incorrect. My sister has many online friends and is a Twitter and Utube regular; has tweeted with some of the Idols as well as other fans, and knows all the Adam-lore there is to know including all his videos/songs, past perfrmances (on Idol and before Idol), trivia and factual tidbits. Me? I’ve never missed an episode of AI and Adam was my fave last season but that’s where it had ended. Until last night.

As soon as we entered the venue, I was thrust into a sea of Adam Lambert fans. Everyone (and I mean everyone, except for the token few Kris Allen fans), were there for Adam Lambert. So there I was, in our row 8 floor seats, with Sue on my right about to fidget herself all the way out of her seat, hyperactive and cellphone-toting teenie boppers in front of me and on my left, and enough cougars on the prowl in their concert gear that the Granby Zoo must have sent out a search party… The audience was very diverse. From young kids to teens, to people in our age group, to cougars, to seniors. And we all had one thing in common – Adam. For the vast vast majority, he was the show and everyone else was just the opening act.

It was kinda sad the way everyone would scream for Adam anytime a clip of him showed up on the big screens during the breaks. The other 9 idols (including the winner Kris) didn’t get anywhere near the same amount of adoration as Adam did. The order of the performances was the top 10 – they each performed their set in the order they were voted off the show. The top 4 were Allison, Danny, Adam and Kris. As Danny’s set ended and the lights went out to prep for Adam’s set, the crowd started screaming and cheering so loud it shook the rafters. This lasted at least 2 mninutes. Then Adam came on stage and the crowd went wild. I’ve never witnessed so many Adamgasms in the same room before.

During his set, Sue’s plan was to fling a bra on stage. She tried a couple of times to get close enough to the stage. The first time she was ushered away by a tall studly security guy. Sue had even begged him to throw it for her, and he replied “I’M not throwing a bra up there!”. Plan B. She went to the other side (center stage) and finally got the bright turquoise bra onto the stage BUT the lights had dimmed a few seconds later and a security guard ducked and ran onto the stage to pick it up and confiscated it. Sue does have a pic of the bra on the stage with Adam and Allison performing behind it, so there’s proof. Mortifying as it is.

The show went on, and it finished with a nice group number, during which Sue proudly held up her sign and unbelievably, Adam saw it, acknowledged it and gave Sue a wave. At which time Sue lost all coherent thought and almost dropped the sign…. LOL

After the show, we went to stand in line next to the tour buses to wait for the Idols to come out for pics and signings. Sue was in the front of the row and got some really great pics of all the Idols but unfortunately, true to his twitter about doctor’s orders, Adam didn’t come out. On our way back to the car, Sue started chatting with guys from the crew (!!!) and got some more info out of them. Finally said her goodbyes and we got home at 2:30am.

Now, I like a good show as much as the next guy but this groopie fanatacism is tiring work, I tell ya. I’m all Adam-ed out…although the CD Sue made me of all of Adam’s songs has been playing every time I’ve been in the car since the concert… Maybe I’ll become a die hard Glambert yet. Just in time for Adam’s solo tour… Sue, please be gentle. 🙂
