American Idol: Adam Gets a Standing Ovation — From Simon!

- Tuesday’s Idol featured songs from the remaining eight contestants’ birth year, which allowed Ryan to show a photo of Simon as a boy pointing at what looked like a toy gun.

It also brought us the rare sight of Simon standing on his feet instead of shooting from the hip. At the end of the hour, with no time left for the judges to even speak, he gave an ovation to Adam Lambert, who performed Gary Jules’s “Mad World” bathed in blue light, as if he were channeling a depressed schoolboy or Donnie Darko himself. It was moving, chilly and edgy — maybe slightly creepy. ... Read full article »

    Adam is creepy and sings like a women, he needs to go! he is not who I would want to win American Idol. I don't get he standing ovation thing at all. He did not deserve it.

    I admit he can sing and so can the rest of them, but I cannot see a gay guy representing America. A record company will grab him up and he'll be just fine, Has ppl lost their morals? We have to draw the line somewhere.

    I hope that Adam wins in the end. He is the only one who has really put himself out there and taken chances. The songs he has chosen so far have been completely unique, and he has had the self-confidence to sing it his way and not simply imitate the original. I am totally impressed with each of his performances and he truly did deserve the standing ovation. Go Adam, Go Adam, Go.......

    i liked it more than i like any of his other performances and usualy i agree with Simon about him
  • bookfan 2009/04/13 22:19:21
    I was a little surprised Simon gave him the ovation, because
    while the song was going on, he looked as bored as he
    usually does. Adam isn't my favorite, but he is a talented
    singer, and will probably win!
  • Michellee 2009/04/13 20:56:26
    Adam's very talented and he deserved this.
    That was a hauntingly beautiful song.
