American Idol

Adam Lambert finally confirms he is gay in the new issue of Rolling Stone.

“I don’t think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I’m gay,” the American Idol runner-up says.

“I’m proud of my sexuality,” continues the rocker, who was photographed holding hands with interior designer Drake LaBry earlier this month. “I embrace it. It’s just another part of me.”

But Lambert, 27, from San Diego — who performed Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” on the Idol finale — says he’s not the poster boy for gay rights.

“I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader,” he tells RS contributor Vanessa Grigoriadis.

Lambert admits that he was nervous about coming out while Idol was still on the air because contestants are under a media embargo, and he wanted to do it on his “own terms.” He also says producers were open to him handling it however he wanted to.

Despite being gay, Glambert says he enjoys attention from the ladies too. “I loved it this season when the girls went crazy for me,” he says. “As far as I’m concerned, it’s all hot.”

Plus, Adam reveals to Rolling Stone that he had a crush on Idol winner Kris Allen during the show!

When Idol producers put him in a room to share with Allen, Lambert says his first thought was, “They put me with the cute guy. Distracting! He’s the one guy I found attractive in the whole group on the show: nice, nonchalant, pretty and totally my type — except that he has a wife. I mean he’s open-minded and liberal, but he’s definitely 100% straight.”

Hahaha! Finally! It is revealed!

I’m not surprised at all to know this. You can sense that he’s like that just watching him right?

Good for him that he decided to reveal it.

Good luck to your career! Rock on!

Well no matter what, I still like Adam Lambert. After all, it’s his voice that swept me away. 🙂

Bye Danny Gokey!

So now it’s down to 2.

Kris and Adam compete for the title.

Wow! Isn’t that great?

Well, this finale seems like similar with the finals last season with David Cook and David Archuleta right? Both have different genre of music and style. And both are good looking. Hahaha! J

Who’s your bet?Who do you think will be the next American Idol?

Go Adam! 🙂

We love you!

Tonight there will be one song from the judges and one other chosen by the contestant.

Will their choices be good enough to save them till the end or it would be their end?

Let’s all find out.

It is the 300th episode, and Ryan calls the boys ‘The Three Amigos.’ Yikes. That is something. Hahaha…

Let’s start with the Judge’s choice.

Danny Gokey goes first. He sang Dance Little Sister by Terrance Trent D’Arby. Good up-tempo song but it’s a bit karaoke. Just the right voice but more of like a copycat.

It’s Apologize of OneRepublic for Kris Allen. It was a nice performance with him on the piano again. Like it!

Adam Lambert sang the song One by U2. Even got cleared by Bono with a call to Simon. Very well done! Started slow and pretty, built, and brought it back down. As usual, there was an overwhelming response from the audience and judges. Yippee!

Before starting with the second round of singing, there is a segment on the now-defunct Idol Gives Back, with Carrie Underwood on the spot making a trip to Africa. She looks very beautiful. Love yah!

Now, back to regular programming.

Danny Gokey sings You are so Beautiful by Joe Cocker. He has a tough time with breath control. Try to control that. Personally, I didn’t like the arrangement. It’s a bit mixed up.

Just Kris and his guitar. This is really good and a brilliant move. It’s the first time that I’ve heard of that song and I am mesmerized. Go Kris!

Cryin’ by Aerosmith is the right song choice for Adam. Starts off well, but the background vocals need to tone down. Adam is on point, and amazing again. I think he out-sang the amazing Steven Tyler. Love it!

Overall, their performance was all stunning. It will really be hard to tell who will go home tonight. Good luck guys!

How about you? Who do you think will be safe and be in the Top 2?

Is it…

I hope Adam will be in the Top 2. *cross finger*

I’m having doubt about the results tonight.

I don’t want to be surprised again so I started thinking of the worst thing that can happen.

And that is Adam being eliminated.

Yes! As much as I don’t want to have that thought. Because nothing is impossible. Remember last week, he’s in the Bottom 3, even if he really doesn’t deserve to be in that spot. So, just for me to calm down a bit, I’ll think of the worst thing to come.

 

The Top 4 took the stage with Slash and his band, with ‘Schools Out.’ Wow, they sang live! Next comes Paula’s much-awaited performance. Then there’s No Doubt singing I’m Justa Girl.

And the moment we’ve been waiting for. There they are. Standing in the stage. Allison, Danny, Adam, and Kris. The first one in the Top 3 is Kris.

Chris Daughtry’s performance is a blast! Congrats!

Next person in the Top 3. Adam Lambert. Yehey!

So it’s down to Danny and Allison.

And Danny is safe. What the?!

It’s the end of the line for Allison. Bye girl! The hair is bad luck to you. Change it. You are still young. There’s a lot more time for you.

It’s Rock Week on American Idol!

Guess who the mentor is?

It’s Guns ‘N Roses guitarist Slash! Great pick this time!

Then there was chaos during the dress rehearsal, from the stage manager rushed to the hospital. And the stage was falling apart.

Ok…let’s go to the remaining contestants.

adam-lambert

 

Adam Lambert (my fave) sang Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin. Adam is again killing the song. Super incredible really! The judges loved it, Kara calls him a ‘Rock God’ and Simon doubts anyone can top it.

 

 

allison-iraheta

 

Allison Iraheta’s song choice did not favor her this time. She chooses a song by Janis Joplin, Cry Baby. The judges didn’t like it. I didn’t like it either. Next.

 

 

danny-krisDanny Gokey & Kris Allen. The first duet of the night. And it’s not great. They sang Renegade by Styx. Don’t get me started on where this two missed in the song ok? I’d rather be mum than be cruel.

 

kris-allen

 

Next is Kris Allen. He sang Come Together by The Beatles. I love this song. Whenever I hear this, I remember Carly Smithson. She sang this song really well so it’s really a disappointment when I hear Kris’ version.

 

danny-gokey

 

Dream on Danny Gokey! This isn’t your night. The scream was way off what rock is all about. You should have tried better. It’s really bugging me why’d you have to do that.

 

 

allison-adamThe duet of the night. Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta really rock the crowd with their version of Slow Ride by Foghat. It was exceptional and amazing. Couldn’t ask for more!

 

As usual, my favorite for the night would be Adam Lambert. He really is consistent with his performances. I have a feeling that Danny will be on the danger zone tomorrow night, unless…hmmm.

 

Vote for Adam.

It was a shocker!

The result of American Idol Season 8 Top 5 got me really scared…for Adam.

The bottom 3 is:

Matt Giraudmatt giraud

Kris Allenkris allen

Adam Lambertadam lambert

Adam?! He had done his best last night and I SO love his performance but then, it turned out that he’s in Bottom 3! That is so unbelievable!

Don’t get me wrong. Don’t think that I’m that bias for saying this but I really can’t believe that he belongs there.

So the verdict is out. Guess who’s safe.

It’s Kris Allen.

So, we are down to Adam and Matt.

Oh c’mon! Please don’t let him be it. Please don’t…

And America has decided that it’s the last day of Matt Giraud.

Whoa! That was really close!

I’m having mixed emotion now. I can’t believe that it had happened.

For Matt, goodbye. We’ll miss you in the show. Continue making beautiful music

For all those who love Adam and want him to win, we have to do double time for him! He needs us now so it’s time that we show our support for Adam! Go ADAM!
