Hope everyone has had a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day! American Idol continued with their silly theme nights tonight with Grand Ole Opry Night— loosely translated as COUNTRY night. With a roster that is heavy on rock singers, its no wonder that none of the performers really knocked it out of the park with their performances tonight– but at least our boy Adam hit it out of left field!
Choosing Johnny Cash’s iconic tune, “Ring of Fire,” Adam gave it his usual one-two-three punch of incredible stage presence, a healthy dose of sex appeal, and spot-on vocals that sent chills down my spine. Those three things couldn’t quite overcome the sitar-drenched, Indian-inspired rendition of the classic song, however, and the judges were left literally speechless. I think Kara summed it up best when she said it left her confused, but happy. Me too… I think.
Adam, three cheers for continuing to have a singular vision on this show! We’re speed dialing for you right now! -miss fitz
