'American Idol:' The Top Three - Vote for Adam Tonight!

Posted on Tuesday, May 12, 2009 at 05:00PM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments22 Comments

It's Tuesday and that means American Idol performance night. Don't worry AI haters, there's just a few days left of the show this season.

Adam Lambert, Danny Gokey and Kris Allen are left. Obviously, you all know where I stand: Adam deserves to win! I could care less about the other two, but Adam is the most deserving and talented singer in the competition's history. He needs your votes tonight.

This season, the top three will perform two songs each. A judge's choice and personal pick. It seems Adam will either be singing U2 or Chris Isaak as the judge's choice - his personal pick is still a mystery, although I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Glam power ballad! It's time for Adam to end the competition now, rock it out and move on to a long and happy career - but - all you Americans need to vote for him!

Call 1-866-436-5703 to vote starting at 9pm ET.

Don't split votes! Adam Lambert will bring back glam!

I dont get it, You should want Adam to LOSE! Yes, he is an incredibly talented singer, and yes he is the best singer they have had on that show in a while. But dont you see that would be bad for his career to win? If he loses, rock fans would embrace him even more. They will say that its because America still doesnt "get" rock. Not to mention that if he doesnt win, he can do the album that he wants to do! Im afraid if he does win, his album will be radio-friendly watered down adult contemporary schlock "see David Cook's debut". If you REALLY want Adam to be the "savior of rock" you need to beg and plead for him to LOSE!!!!! Trust me!

Sorry Kenny but I disagree with you 100%. Adam just can't "sing" he's also very smart. He won't be railroaded into a certain type of album, I firmly believe this - plus, he's said many times he wants to win. I get that. He's working very hard to win, we should help him.

Oh no, I know it's your blogg and allt that. But please don't write about a fucking poser from American Idol.
I wish somebody, would hit him.
I mean if he was good enough and had some integrity, he would start in a band and become famous that way.
I write it all the time but; If your good enought, you don't need this rubbish, you can build your own career.

What will happen with this "talent" now? Well no real musicans will work with him, he will realese a Daughtry-bad-crap-shit-album, and then fall into the shadows.

But I believe that it is written into their AI contract that they write and produce the winners first album. If that is the case im right. Im a HUGE Kelly Clarkson fan, but her 1st album, written and produced by the brain-trust at AI, is easily her weakest effort musically. I know we have had our differences of opinion, but I hope you are right, I hope this kid does "bring back glam", but I just dont think that mainstream rock fans will ever embrace a reality show winner.

I will write about whatever makes me happy. Happiness = Adam Lambert.

Kenny,

I think your argument is flawed because Adam's the most downloaded artist on iTunes so far this YEAR. Clearly, people are embracing him and his music. Quite frankly, so many people watch AI and the random "holier than thou" metal head doesn't much matter into the equation. It's the same for every artist really: will hype translate into sales? Since we're already seeing a big interest in people actually wanting to *pay* for Adam's music, I'd say he'll be accepted as an artist. If not, oh well I guess. Some people will always miss out for being close minded.

If I were this close to my dream, I'd certainly hope people would help me get there instead of thinking they know "what's better."

I actually get what Kenny is saying and kind of thought the same thing several weeks ago. But as people embraced him on itunes, I started to believe that even under an AI contract, he will do his own thing, because they know he can be successful. He wants to win and he has the talent to win, so now that's what I want for him.
Kenny, in retrospect, do you think it would have been better for Kelly to have lost season one? I am sure she would be successful either way, but do you think she would have gone farther, faster if she had come in 2nd?

Now, I haven't liked Adam since day 1 and quit watching the show weeks ago. He voice is just to thin sounding for my tastes. But if people love him great. If he does win he will likely have to make an album of radio schlock. It happened to David Cook,Daughtry and Bo Bice. I'll admit I didn't find Daughtry too bad but the other two debuts were awful. AI owns Adam's ass and he will have to do what they say. I used to think it was good to have rocker guys and gals on Idol...I was wrong. This show is made for pop artists only.
May 12, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChristopher
Well Heather thats kind of a different argument all together. Kelly is an attractive female pop singer. It was easy for America to embrace her. Granted, she is a PHENOMINAL talent and could of done well on her own but being the first ever winner gives her some clout. Im just afraid that Adam will never get the huge rock fan base he deserves because most "rock fans" will look at him only as an eyeliner wearing, homosexual, reality show winner. And thats a damn shame. The kid has got the pipes and the image, but you have to understand my fear for his career if "when" he does win. Understand my point?
May 12, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKenny Ozz
I do get what you are saying. I am just hoping music fans have enough sense to look past the AI hype and eyeliner and recognize him for the brilliant artist that he is.
At this point, I really feel Adam will go on to have an amazing career, win or lose. However, as a fan, I want to hear more from him in the finale, and I want to see him win!

And by a long and successful career, u mean release 1 album, open up for Demi Lavato, then get dumped by the label and try out Broadway. American Idol fans dont buy albums and concert tickets after the season is over. They buy performance clips for a dollar each on itunes while the season is in progress. All 3 of these guys will be forgotten within 2 years. Its a modern day Star Search. AI is part of the problem. Its not a "sell out" issue. Its an integrity issue

he rocks and cryin was sick! (meaning amazing ha. and im a guy!)

Are you kidding me....this just shows how much about the 80's rock scene Alyson doesn't understand and I can't blame her because she didnt live it as a teen or early 20 something. Back in the day this guy Adam would get his ass kicked up and down Sunset Blvd, he looks terrible, his clothes dont fit and his voice sounds like he should be on broadway. ALyson, you claim to love Aerosmith...Cryin was shiteous!!!Send this guy home!!!

Thank you, glam man, for winning the “dumbest comment ever” prize. All hail our new winner. I’m sorry, but to say I don’t know anything about 80s music isn’t just insulting – it’s a flat out lie. The musicians I’ve interviewed would disagree and I’m pretty sure every regular BBG! reader would as well.

It is flat out wrong to say a person can’t be a fan of Glam if they didn’t live the era as a teen or twenty-something. If anything, that gives me more credibility as a person who truly loves the genre and is willing to take a massive amount of time to write about and bring back the era. People need to start thinking before they post. Seriously, some of the comments on this website over the past week have been over the top. We’re talking about music, not genocide.

Oh, and the only thing “shiteous” about Adam’s rendition of “Cryin’” was a loud backup singer and the fact that “American Idol” makes the contestants cut their songs short. Of course, I’m sure you could do much better.

And P.S., “glam man,” my name is spelled ALLYSON and I am a Glam expert. Deal with it.

wow, the gloves are off in today's blog battle.love it! i really don't care about AI but i haven't been impressed with the few episodes i've seen. I am curious as to who the "Real" adam lambert is and not who the producers or stylists think he "should" be. guess we'll find out once the show is over, no matter the outcome. simon has predicted adam to win from what i've read and that's probably a safe prediction. keep the opinions coming. Stir It Up!

This has come up several times in the past week. For the record, a lot of the people who 'lived it', were following the trends of the day as much as fans of whatever is high on the charts. As Allyson said, people who get into any style of music that is not popular, are by definition, the real fans.
May 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChristian
not trying to offend so I am sorry if I did...Honest questions: The people from the 80's or glam era that you have interviewed what do you think they really think of Adam? How long does this guy last living in a garage with Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars? How long does he last living in a storage unit with Slash, Duff and Izzy? I bet we see this gut performing on Broadway in less than 24 months.
For the record I love the site, read it everyday and Allyson does know a lot about music.

He's ok....not great he would be good with Queen.

Cryin' would've been so much better if there was not a background singer. My God, she was terrible.
One was better than Cryin', imo.
Both were good though.
May 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMakel
Glam man...not a personal slam, but saying someone will be 'performing on Broadway' is hardly an insult. Sure, it's not the most "rockstar" thing you can do, but you have to have serious chops to audition, make it, and stay there. (Plus, lots of serious rockers have done B-way.)

So its the good ol' Christian boy from small town Arkansas vs the flamboyant glam singing sensation homosexual from Cali. Talk about gripping tv. Never underestimate the Christian vote. They wont mess around with this.
