'American Idol's' Adam Lambert vs. Paul McDonald: Who performed 'Tracks of my Tears' best?

http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox ... -best.html

Sorry for that trick question in the headline, but really, isn't it kind of obvious?

Don't take any offense to this McDonald, but there's pretty much no one who can top Adam Lambert's version of Smokey Robinson's "Tracks of my Tears."

Paul performed the song on "American Idol's" Top 11 show (Theme: Motown week!) and while we thought it was pretty good, we couldn't help buy say, "But Adam Lambert OWNS this song. Why would you perform it on the same stage?!"

When McDonald chatted with a group of reporters after the show, he spilled that he didn't know Lambert had covered the song before. "No. I never knew that was a song that had been done. I'm sure it has been," he says. "I don't know. I've been pretty much out of the 'Idol' loop for a long time... ever, pretty much."

Our take on the two performances? Lambert's performance of the Robinson classic was probably one of his best performances in Season 8. Heck, it's probably one of the best performances ever on the show. When he sang the song, you felt every line, every emotion he was feeling. You couldn't take your eyes off of him.

Paul changed the style to suit him and kind of channeled Bob Dylan on the tune. It was great to see him with his guitar and standing in one place, but the emotion just didn't match Lambert's. That being said, we're still totally downloading Paul's version on iTunes. He has one of the most radio-friendly voices out of all the Season 10 contestants.

We just got the impression that Lambert actually sat down, read the lyrics, really thought about them and connected with the song; McDonald probably just thought it was a pretty cool tune that he could "vibe" with.

You've heard our opinion, now let's hear from you. Watch the two performances and then vote in our poll: (embedded vids in link)

Was travelling so had to rely on twitter for last week's eliminations of Thia and Nademia.

What do you think of Slezak's suggestions for Rock and Roll Week?

'American Idol': 5 Theories On Why Pia Toscano Was Eliminated


How is it that the former frontrunner is headed home so soon? Idol Worship breaks down the season 10 shocker.

Shirley Halperin http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/idol-w ... why-176236

I know what you’re thinking: how did this happen? Why did Pia Toscano, the frontrunner of all frontrunners, get sent home in ninth place? And how is it that Ryan Seacrest didn't better prepare us for the outcome? Where was the buzz of a “shocker you don’t wanna miss?” What happened to the build-up? Or some foreshadowing?

In a way, what went down really is unbelievable. Think of all the former American Idol finalists who’ve made it further than this position. Jennifer Hudson is nothing to sneeze at, sure, but how about Sanjaya Malakar in season 6? He made it to Top 7, as did Season 7’s Kristy Lee Cook. Neither could hold a candle to Pia’s powerful pipes.

So what happened? We have some theories…

1. Girls don’t like girls: It’s a longstanding trend on Idol, whose audience is overwhelmingly female -- girls don’t vote for the female contestants. Blame it on same-gender envy or the crush factor (this year’s prime beneficiaries: Scotty McCreery and Paul McDonald), as Naima pointed out after her elimination last week, but it’s simply a fact of Idol life. One by one, the girls get plucked like the petals of a flower. Watch them go…

2. Lack of guidance by the judges: With the new judges so positive pretty much all the time, the audience seems unsure of who to vote for. It’s not like the show needs a bully to function, but when you’re faced with the decision of choosing the best in a group of greats, some professional insight is called for and these judges are failing on that front. Suggestion: let Jimmy Iovine have a turn to tell it like it really is. Even a short segment at the end of the live show running down his thoughts on all of the finalists would work, no matter how disjointed it might turn out.

3. Presumptive Winner Syndrome: Or PWS, as I like to call it -- it’s when everybody is so universally convinced that a contestant will win, that they basically neglect or forget to vote for that finalist. It's been Pia’s problem from the very beginning, when it was insinuated that she might be a plant. Why? Because she’s so perfect! That’s why I criticized her pageant queen-ness, but I was also one of the millions who simply presumed that she’d be the victor.

4. The producers deemed it so: Now I’m not one for conspiracy theories, but plenty of my fellow Idol Worshipers are (I’m looking at you Jennifer Laski, THR photo director), so it has to be mentioned -- maybe, just maybe, the producers fudged the results for some inexplicable reason, or simply to f--- with America on the brink of a government shutdown. Although it’s worth pointing out that after the credits had rolled, several people in the Idol studio audience demanded a recount.

5. You can’t touch Tina: Personally, I thought Pia slayed what is arguably the best piece of music to come out of the Ike and Tina Turner catalog -- with Phil Spector’s production, no less (listen to the original here), but there were plenty of rumblings around the web about her robotic movements, unattractive outfit, and simply the fact that you don’t touch the mighty Tina Turner. Pia had, of course, already taken on several of the divas, so why not? At this point, it was part of her Idol oeuvre. Still, the purists might balk, and perhaps they did.

Adam Lambert talks about ‘American Idol’s’ final stars

http://www.hollywoodnews.com/2011/05/05 ... nal-stars/

Adam Lambert was the runner-up in his season of ‘American Idol,’ so he seems like the appropriate person to give an opinion about the current contestants.

Lambert is currently loving Haley Reinhart and what she is doing on the show, states Billboard. “I love Haley so much because musically and vocally, she’s doing things that are at a top-notch level,” Lambert commented, adding that she doesn’t seem to be trying too hard.

However, one contestant he isn’t loving is James Durbin, who has been compared to Lambert. “I think he’s got talent and passion 100%, but I feel like he’s trying way too hard,” Lambert revealed.

Adam feels the same way as I do. I hope that James does not win this thing even though TPTB are pushing him at us with such force, it's sickening. There is more manipulation this year, or maybe it's just more blatant this year.

I am so glad James got sent home. I found him so annoying. What TPTB did to Haley is just unforgiveable. I hope she wins, I'm not sure that will happen unless everything they did to her was preplanned to garner mass voting for her to get her to the top 3.
