American Idol update (C'mon, you know you want to know.)


The two truly "must-see" singers in this season's AI are ...

Allison Iraheta ("Papa Was a Rolling Stone")
[ youtube.com/watch?v=v959pZBSPGc ]
(The sixteen y.o. prodigy, she could channel a "Janis Joplin".)

Adam Lambert ("Tracks Of My Tears")
[ youtube.com/watch?v=iB_fUEe5Eh0 ]
(Always brilliant. What can't he do and make it his own song?
 Also watch:
     "I Make You Crazy" Art 4 Life Benefit 2008
     [ youtube.com/watch?v=EBlmcak7cuA ]
     "Crawl Thru Fire" The Zodiac Show 2009
     [ youtube.com/watch?v=wXvSA6QL7Ac ])

Because of these two, and especially Adam Lambert, it's the best AI in years. Ever, actually.
