Vocal MasterClass Discussion For American Idol Season 17: The Top 8 Sing The Music Of Queen With Adam Lambert and So Much More

This is a humongous week on American Idol. Totally. The. Best.

Each of the Top 8 singers will perform a song from the Queen catalogue, before partnering up for classic movie duet performances.

The fabulous Adam Lambert will add even more glitz and glamour to this week’s performances when he returns as mentor to each of the singers.

Be still my heart.

All of this will happen on Sunday, March 28th at 8:00 PM on ABC.

But, it doesn’t end there.

On Monday, March 29th, ABC will Air a documentary – The Show Must Go On: The Queen And Adam Lambert Story – at 8:00 PM. This documentary will feature rare concert footage and exclusive portraits of the band members offstage while highlighting Adam Lambert’s meteoric rise to fame via American Idol.

I think it is safe to say that the ABC version of American Idol has finally. found it’s mojo. Always trust Mickey Mouse folks (Disney owns ABC). The mouse never lets you down.

Are you excited for these two shows? I know I am! Have fun everyone and don’t be a stranger in the comments section.

    So great to see Adam Lambert again……. What a great mentor he was…. My two favorites this season are Jeremiah and Madison. Both power house voices…. His song was perfect for his voice and their duet together was fabulous. Both complemented each other very well….. I can see them being the top 2…… She reminds me of Carrie Underwood and he reminds me of Adam Lambert…

  2. How nice to see two great shows this week. This is a good group of Idols competing this year. I hated to see Alyssa go, but am happy Madison is still there. TBH, I was hoping Wade would go home. He has not impressed me, especially last night…..I loved the Queen+Adam special. How wonderful to see his success. He did a good job mentoring. I am just so happy to see Idol picked up again!
