    Adam Lambert was AWSOME tonight on Idol.
    We thought he did a great job at being a mentor. I think this was a good choice by Idol to have Adam on the show.
    Again, Crystal Bowersox had a great night as well as Big Mike. I look forward to seeing them in the final 2-3, weel see.

    Yes, I would agree that Mr. Lambert was a good choice. I think it was a great way for Idol to pay their respects to a musical artist they all had great respect for throughout last season. It is so very rare for all four judges to rave over a contestants performances over and over again throughout the competition. This is a guy who knows how to change up a song and make it his own without dishonoring the original. He is also honest yet sensitive to everyone he engagaes with. Not sure what happened with the AMAs but I am definitly ready to embrace his artistry again. I think we all just pushed his buttons way too much with his sexuality too early in his career and he sent out a message with that performance. He was angry in my opinion at that point in his career. Too much flak for something that doesn't equate to who he is as a person. Great mentoring job Adam!
