Adam Lambert's Mad World gets a standing ovation from Simon
Adam Lambert closes down American Idol, born in 1982; says he loved playing dress-up, being a performer, gettting attention. Singing "Mad World." Oh man, we could have a moment tonight, a perfect choice.
I love this song (yeah, mostly from the Gears of War commercial). Adam's singing it pitch-perfect; sitting on a box, lights down, stripped down and just pouring out the lyrics. He's making this a tender, vulnerable song; this is going to stick in everyone's mind.
Then he just nails the chorus; wow. Audience is just screaming throughout. Mad vocal skills, yo.
Simon says "words are unnecessary, but I want to give you a standing ovation."
Wow. They're out of time so Simon's the only one who says anything; and that says it all.
