Now, this is the best news I have heard in a long while.
Could they find a better person? Hardly! He is current, he is intelligent, he is articulate, he is savvy, he can sing and, oh yes, did I mention he was runner-up of American Idol Season 8? I did? Well, it’s worth a double mention!
While Adam was a contestant on the show, he meticulously came armed and ready with repertoire from every genre, artistically honing it to suit his innovative style and substance.
Probably one of the most creative artists this show has ever seen, Adam, in his new role as American Idol Judge, would definitely breathe life and originality into this show.
More important, Adam is, above all, an imaginative and visionary artist. Yes, he has been vocal about his likes and dislikes over some of the contestants during the past few seasons, but so have we! Sometimes I agreed with him, sometimes not! But, that’s par for the course.
However, I would like to think that his innovative and imaginative mind would, somehow, allow unique artists to prosper more fully on this show.
And, given his music theatrical background, perhaps artists skilled in the Broadway genre would have a chance to flourish.
Personally, I am tired of the negative remarks from American Idol judges against singers who have grounded their craft via the theoretical route. It is insulting, definitely misleading, inaccurate and short-sighted.
So, now that I’ve had my say, what do y’all think? Is this a step in the right direction? Comments are waiting!! Let the good times roll!
