Well, Adam Lambert Fans!! This is your week! The former American Idol finalist takes a long overdue seat at that Judges’ Table to share his advice and insight in his role as mentor and judge to prospective contestants of American Idol Season 14.
How did this happen?
Well, unfortunately, during the New York auditions, Keith Urban had to take an immediate leave from the tapings to support his wife, Nicole Kidman, whose father passed away suddenly.
Enter Adam and the squealing of Glamberts worldwide.
Adam lends a strong and unique perspective to this audition process simply because he was once in the same shoes as these Season 14 hopefuls.
Below, you will find a teaser from this week’s show, highlighting Adam auditioning with “Bohemian Rhapsody” for fellow judges Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. You can also catch a quick glimpse of his intelligent interaction with the singers. It is going to be a great episode.
I thought last week’s episodes were very good and I was happy to see American Idol using the services of pianist/arranger/vocal coach Michael Orland during the auditions. This added a level of authenticity to the auditions because, in reality, singers usually audition with a piano accompanist. Smart move.
American Idol airs on Fox at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, January 14th and Thursday, January 15th.
Who are you favorites from last week? Are you excited to see Adam this week? Please share in the comments section below.
