the other day i was reading about AI and it was michael jackson week. that's a must see coz its not easy pulling off an MJ. he's the king.
apparently there were really good comments on this guy- adam lambert's version of "black or white". i think, that song is one of the most clearly reminded songs in my memory. one of the first i heard from MJ, before i scouted back through time to listen to his other great numbers. i still remember the home alone kid in the music vid. apparently tyra banks too. i think she was one of the "its black. its white..." part where the faces keep changing. then there were the russian dancers.
anyways, my point is, that song has got to be the one of the most famous songs of the century. who doesn't know it right?
so performing it, could easily mean butchering it and getting the green light out of the competition.
but adam didn't kill it. i actually enjoyed it. theatrical and over-confident? yes, but entertaining nonetheless. and it had a lil hint of axl rose in "welcome to the jungle". i don't know. maybe its the lack of oxygen from 2000feet above ground level, but seriously, i think he managed to pull it off. he's got me humming...
