This week, the very talented Season 8 American Idol Runner-Up, Adam Lambert, returns to act as a mentor for the Top 9 Semi-Finalists from Season 9. This week they will be celebrating the music of The King – Mr. Elvis Presley.
And, it promises to be quite the show! In order to immerse the singers in the music, Adam and this year’s crop of talented singers visited Las Vegas where they had a special viewing of Cirque de Soleil’s, “Viva Las Vegas“. And apparently, they had a blast!
And thanks to the Judges’ Save, we are in for another round of exciting Top 9 performances. The big guy with the bigger voice, Michael Lynche, was redeemed by the judging panel as worthy to continue on for another week.
And, boy, did he sing his heart out during last week’s Results Show. As if they weren’t going to use the save! The guy is amazing. This is what should have happened last season when Top 7 Finalist, Scott McIntyre, was eliminated in an untimely fashion.
So we move on to this week’s Top 9 Show Part 2 where the remaining singers –Aaron Kelly, Andrew Garcia, Casey James, Crystal Bowersox, Katie Stevens, Lee Dewyze, Michael Lynche, Siobhan Magnus and Tim Urban – as they attempt to capture the magic of last week’s performances. Can that bottle hold more lightning? Let’s hope so. I know that Adam will be extremely supportive and knowledgeable to the singers, so I am expecting big things this week.
Best of luck to the Top 9 Finalists and feel welcome to add your comments before, during and after the live telecast on Tuesday, April 13th.
