'Idolatry': Are you digging Adam Lambert? And who deserves the Wild Card?

It’s true, y’all! Life.com’s Dawnie Walton (voice of Explorita and Rageia on America’s Next Top Doll) stopped by EW.com HQ to discuss the week in Idol. On our agenda: The Adam Lambert-Meatloaf connection, the Group 2 contestant who most needs a Wild Card (Mishavonna Henson…heyyyy!), and the judge who gave the week’s most ridiculous critique (guess who?). (Programming note: This week’s Idolatry is a two-parter, so stick around after Dawnie and I finish dishing Screechy McScreecherson, and Part Deux will automatically begin to play. It’s true, y’all!)

    I consider the comparison of Adam Lambert to Meat Loaf to be way off base and a complete insult to Meat Loaf. Jesse deserves a wild card and does everyone really think we’re going to have all of these guys in the wild card so there’s a 9 boys/3 girls split in the Top 12? I don’t see the judges/producers allowing.


    i bet they have Lil sing first this week.

    Normal Gentle for Wildcard. Otherwise it’s just another boring season of Idol.

    I was very encouraged by the performances in the second group. Overall, the second group seemed much better than the first group. Is this because the second group had 2 weeks to practice before their performance?

    I think Adam is great and the most ‘ready’ of all of them. I kind of wish he’d tone it down just a little because he has a great voice and it might even be better than the histrionics. I watched some YouTube videos of him singing songs from Wicked and Jesus Christ Superstar, and he’s just fantastic.

    Adam Lambert is the best so far, in my opinion. I agree with Randy that he’s current, one of those “them stars” (Fall Out Boys, Robert Patterson … He does look a bit like Pete,the lead singer of Fall Out Boy, though I’m not sure about his vocal, it’s rather theatrical.

    Watch the opening two minutes. If Lil Rounds is in the first half of contestants, she’s dead meat. If she’s introduced last, she has the “pimp” spot and is virtually guaranteed a spot in the top 12.

    Love Adam! Ricky Braddy and Anoop for wild card.

    I know why you’re digging Mishovanna so much, Slezak. In that clip, she sounds a lot like Carly Smithson Jr. I’m pulling for Adam and Kris. And I’m also throwing money in the pool for a Saint Danny vs. Devil Adam finale in May.

  • Rachel K

    Ricky Braddy for wild card!

    I can’t stand Adam Lambert. Anyone who played a flying monkey in the touring production of Wicked automatically needs to take a hike. That said, I don’t think his pictures on votefortheworst/dlisted are going to help him! I can’t wait for the fallout.

    LOL Beth R! If it comes down to a Saint Danny vs. Devil Adam finale I will vote with the devil for sure on this one! :o)
    Mishovanna definitely deserves a wildcard spot!

  • Dee

    Well Anoop definitely deserves one. I guess Mish does. Tatianna and Nick shouldn’t even be considered. I like the guys better so it doesn’t matter on the ladies side as long as Tat doesn’t make it back.

    Let me be clear — I don’t dislike ANY of the contestants this season. But I do have an issue with the fact that a majority of the current “Top Six” and front runners in this week’s final crop of 12 can only perform a song at the top of their lungs. Since when did “LOUD, but in tune” become the new standard for a good performer? That’s how young singers like Jordin Sparks end up blowing out their voices during a tour season. And that shouldn’t happen to ANY promising young singer.

    Sorry to disagree, Adam is not Meat Loaf. He doesn’t sing like him; doesn’t look like him; doesn’t act like him. Have you ever met Meat Loaf? I have and although you can like or dislike him as an artist, he is a genuine individual who appreciates his fans and his voice is much deeper than Adam’s. I agree though of the like/don’t like of Adam – not really sure about him yet and hopes he stops screaming his songs and gets rid of the stage act so we can actually see what he is like – for real.
