Although I have not been able to religiously follow this whole season of American Idol (unlike the past seasons), I have seen enough to rally for a favorite contender.
Yes, it’s Adam. I don’t like it that he’s so gay (and at times theatrical), yet I still find his performances great compared to the other contestants.
Earlier in the season, I was rooting for Danny Gokey who was booted off last week. But as the show progressed, I was slowly getting bored with Gokey and I found Adam consistently delivering exceptional performances.
Being a fan of Tears for Fears and a lover of the song “Mad World”, Adam’s rendition of the song has become one of my favorites. With that performance, he had definitely gotten my vote!
This is his second performance of the song (during the finale)…
It was our girls’ “gimmik” trip. My sisters, my five-year old daughter and I headed out last Sunday to the Cultural Center of the Phlippines (CCP) to watch Cinderella, the musical stage play featuring Lea Salonga.
It was the first time I ever got to watch Lea perform on stage and hear her sing live, since it was not Lea who performed when we watched Miss Saigon few years ago.
She really has a great voice and we all enjoyed the show. Alterations to the story to depict some current realities made it more interesting and humorous, such as having a king who appears stingy due to hard times and was not too excited about the expense of having a grand ball for his son, a godmother who seemingly tries to conceal her “fairy” or magical prowess , and lots more.
We’re all looking forward to more musical plays. Our next target : “Rapunzel” in September.
