Adam Lambert Brings Lasers to American Idol Results Show

by at . Comments

Andrew Garcia and Katie Stevens were both eliminated from American Idol last night.

This wasn't a shocking result, but it was a sad one, as both contestants shed tears during the episode-concluding montage of their time on the show. We wish Andrew and Katie the best of luck.

On a more positive note, Adam Lambert performed his latest single ("Whataya Want From Me") about 45 minutes into the hour.

Donning a colorful suit, skinny tie and, of course, a bit of guy-liner, last year's runner-up put on an emotional rendition of the single - and used lasers on stage.

"I wanted to do something a little different," Adam said to Ryan Seacrest afterwards, later giving thanks to the show: "I owe American Idol everything."

Humble and incredibly talented? That's the Adam Lambert we know and love...

You may not like Adam's style of singing/performing but to say he was terrible is just pure hatred. The man is amazing. Best thing I have seen on TV since last year's Idol. I know the whole world will embrace him. He is just so good. My words can't describe his greatness. Buy his album and videos and listen and watch. So happy for him.

There was no "cracking" in his voice. He uses the slightly rough sound occasionally to evoke emotion - as he did in the opening of WWFM.

i loved how adam changed up the song!!! i think i even like it better than the recorded version. although i love the guitar in the original version. go adam go, you have a fantastic voice and the knowledge of how to entertain an audience. just don't do dumb stunts like the AMA and be the singer everyone loves to watch and listen to!

Personally, I wanted the phone number to vote for Adam. :-) He was awesome; I loved reading the on-the-scenes report from Entertainment Weekly that talked the insanely enthusiastic he received before, during and after the performance. If I were one of the remaining Idols, that masterful display of showmanship would have intimidated the heck out of me.

I wish people would get over the gay thing, it has nothing to do with Adam's talent. That voice is so great and he is so real and earthy, what a great combination. It's as if, when he stops performing, he totally stops performing. I just love that.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
