Adam Lambert song spoilers for Top 3 week
Thanks to one of my readers for taking some incredible pics! She was on the scene at the AT&T store Lambert visited.
But a much more mixed demographic — all ages, ethnicity, etc. Adam finally arrived (in the stretch white SUV limo with a magnetic American Idol emblem on the door). He was whisked into the store through a rear door. About 10 minutes later he appeared, and by this time, the crowd was jammed all around the small stage. He and multiple camera folks came onto the stage (there was an AT&T Uverse /spelling? crew, Channel 8 plus the AI cameras). The crowd was much rowdier than at Fox. Adam said just a few words (thanks for coming type stuff) and then started signing autographs. Then we found out the real purpose behind this visit — he was presented with a custom AI cell phone (all sparkly blue with the Idol logo) and then he got his first special text message on the phone — it was Simon — with the selection of song for next week (next Tuesday each contestant sings one song of their choice, one selected by the judges). Of course, there were multiple messages, I guess to avoid anyone being a “spoiler.” Adam read each of the messages while the cameras were rolling. I think there were two or three song alternatives – I only heard two (crowds screming) — the first was a U2 song, the second song had “wicked” in the title or the artist and it seemed to be the one Adam was most excited about when he read the choice.
They had the judges text them on new special, customized American Idol iPhones. Which were presented to them at an AT&T store they were forced to visit on their trip back to their hometown. Lambert got his text from Simon Cowell. I think they have blue bling glued on them and shit. And they’re blue, instead of black. Something like that.
The contestants are doing only 2 songs, but I think one song is given as an alternative.
My source only heard 2 of 3:
First: Something by U2
Second: Something with wicked in the title. I am assuming Wicked Game by Chris Issak?
I can totally see Wicked Game. Yeah. Definitely.
