'Little Bee' date='Aug 19th 2009, 11:10 PM'

Some last late texts. I wished her safe journey back and told her to stop at services if she feels sleepy

Madamimadam:

Stopped at IHOP. I need food. I haven't eaten since 1pm.


Asked her why not, and also said to drink coffee

I was too afraid of getting panic attacks, Full stomach does not help.

Adam was breathtaking


Told her I am really pleased for her but very envious

Awww! Your day will come!

I replied that I have everyones vid and pics and my not so innocent mind to keep me going

As gorgeous as Adam is in pics and videos.. they don't do him justice.

Replied with 'you are really making me jealous now!' :haha:

I have told her I am going to sleep for a few hours now so if she updates it will be to mndchnger
Nite all!

The concert tonight was AMAAAAAZING!! ::spaz:: ::spaz::

Well, okay the first half was kinda "meh" (Matt was amazing though). But. Adam lsdfjskalfjsljfsalkdjfklsjdflakjs. That man is freaking ELECTRIC on stage. It's kind of ridiculous.

I feel like I probably don't actually need to extensively recap because everything I say would be a repeat of what we already know.
I WILL say, though, that Danny actually kind of surprised me. I was fully expecting to be bored as heck during his set, and... somehow I actually kind of enjoyed it :ph34r: Like... it was kind of touching. WTH? Since WHEN do I LIKE Danny Gokey!?! I do not understand how this happened. haha. I mean I still don't like when he tries to be Adam (which mostly happens in Maria Maria), but What Hurts The Most was kind of quite emotional. Maybe it's just that I'd never really thought of the song in the sense that it could be about a loved one dying as much as it could be about a loved one walking away. So yeah, it may have just been the song. But I kinda got into it. And the preaching... somehow I didn't mind it. In fact, he preached about stuff I tend to really agree with! And My Wish For You was really nice.

Not saying Danny was by ANY means better than Adam, Kris, or Allison, but it's just it surprised me that I quite enjoyed him! haha. I swear, that NEVER happened on the show except for Come Rain or Come Shine.
Aaaaanyway, yeah. ADAM ADAM ADAM eeeeeep. You literally just cannot take your eyes off him! The man IS sex incarnate. And then he turns around and is totally adorable and smiley when interacting with Allison and Kris! :D Cutest thing evah. I just don't have much to say because, again, I feel like most of this has already been said. His voice is out of this world. His charisma is out of this world. He is the Glittery Alien From Planet Fierce and that's all there is to it :D
Speaking of Allison and Kris, THEY ROCK. Like.. a whole lot. Love. Them. To death. Allison is killer, just a complete pro already at 17 years old. And Kris has THE best taste in music (literally every song in his set is like... a song I have on my ipod and listen to over and over, even from before this Idol season. Except for Heartless, which I now listen to his version of it all the time). And he's extremely great at what he does, he truly is. I know he won and all, but I still can't help but feel he's a little underrated. I think people tend to overlook just how good he is because he's sooo chill and modest in how he presents himself. But he's completely awesome, and 100% adorable :wub:
So yeah, over all it was an awesome night!! And Adam and Allison are seriously too freaking cute during slow ride. They were both just complete smiles and giggles the whole time <3
OH and I ended up not taking videos during Adam's set, I'm sorry :( It was just too energetic and fun and dancy, and I didn't want to miss out by standing there perfectly still with a video camera! haha. So I decided to forgo the filming. But I figure there will probably be LOTS of other great videos from tonight, that will have better video quality than I would have! haha

'Idols' live gets a different vote

By TRACY ORMSBEE, Senior editor
First published in print: Thursday, August 20, 2009
ALBANY -- I must disclose before I say anything more that I redialed my phone three times to place four votes for Kris Allen before the finale of season 8 of "American Idol" this May– once each for me, my two daughters, and the family dog. But after watching American Idols Live Tour 2009, a nearly three-hour show Wednesday at the Times Union Center, I'm not sure how my vote would go today.


The group looks a lot different live in front of a crowd of more than 8,000 adoring fans -- mostly young women, as in tween girls (I know from their piercing screams and waving glow sticks) and, of course, their parents.

The final four – Allison Iraheta, Danny Gokey, Adam Lambert and Allen -- who were saved for the second half of the show, were better versions of their already talented selves. Iraheta, only 16 and still sporting unnaturally red hair, was cool with her Janis Joplin voice, especially good singing Heart's "Barracuda" and a duet with Lambert on "Slow Ride." Gokey's smokey voice was more in control than during the television show, with no off-key notes or stray screams. And glam rocker and Idol judges' darling Lambert brought the crowd to its feet with a level of energy and showmanship -- and voice -- unmatched by the other performers. It almost seemed like the crowd cooled down when Allen followed with his so-different style. Allen showed his newly acquired show-biz savvy by replacing the bum "No Boundaries" he sang at the finale with "All These Things That I've Done" by The Killers. The two top vote-getters seemed to rub off on each other, with Lambert more subdued and Allen a little bolder.

The bigger surprise for me was the lesser-knowns. Take Scott MacIntyre. Each week during the season, I would wonder aloud from my couch how he made it back another week. He was clearly the weakest of the contestants, singing off key, saved only by his sweet disposition and piano playing. This crowd was thrilled to see him, though, and he was more practiced, strong and confident singing "Bend & Break" by Keane than he was the entire television season.

And, Lil Rounds, who was criticized by the judges almost weekly for not putting her own mark on songs, brought her personality to the stage strutting and dancing through "Be Without You/Just Fine" and Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On it)."

Anoop Desai (OK, he got a lot of my call-in votes this season) sang the beautifully sultry and raspy "Always On My Mind" by Willie Nelson, a song that also won him favor with the judges during "Idol."

A couple yawners: Michael Sarver, who I couldn't even remember until I asked someone in the office, was equally forgettable Wednesday. And, Megan Joy, the tattoo-armed blonde, strutted around the stage in a hot pink dress but did little more to garner attention. I read she plans to go into modeling or television after the tour. Good plan.

So I guess if I had those four votes back, I'd give two to Lambert, one to Allen and the last to any one of the good performers I saw Wednesday.

Concert review

American Idols Live

When: 7 p.m. Wednesday

Where: Times Union Center, 51 South Pearl St., Albany

Length: 3 hours; one intermission

The crowd: 8,000-plus, mostly parents (i.e., moms) with kids.

Highlights: Anoop Desai's sultry "You're Always on My Mind"; Matt Giraud's incredible jamming on the piano halfway through "Hard to Handle"; Kris Allen on "Heartless"; Everything by Adam Lambert.

I love his dance moves! 2nd gif is a continuation of the 1st

I wish I could move my hips and undulate my body like that!


'madamimadam' date='Aug 20th 2009, 1:03 PM'

So here’s my recap... written at 5:00 a.m.... I was going to rework it but too lazy!

This is what I thought...

Michael: Comes off as a very lovable guy. He tries really hard to get a ‘cold’ crowd going. He comes up a little short, but certainly gets A for effort. He waved at two young girls who were sitting next to me which made them squeal in delight. He truly is a squishy big ole teddy bear with that Southern good ole boy charm!

Megan Joy: Absolutely gorgeous, but sings like she doesn’t give a damn. Kind of strange. She tried to get the audience involved by asking who was in love. Almost no response, to which she said: “Well, except for those five people who are in love, you must all be in the same boat as me, unlucky in love, so this one’s for you.” I don’t know, it felt like she relies on her beauty and sexiness (and that dress certainly hugged her in all the right places) to get at least the male audience on her side.

Scott: He just never connected with the audience. His tweeting style is a pretty good reflection of his set. He seems to be in his own bubble and has a very deep belief that he is beyond great.

Lil: She walked on stage with a very peed off look on her face... perhaps it is part of her act and the first song she sings, but unfortunately it set the mood and it never recovered from there. There is something about her that screams ‘huge chip on my shoulder’ and it takes away from a voice that is decent enough... not great... but decent enough.

Anoop: You Were Always on My Mind is the best thing about his set. It was all downhill from there. There is an arrogance in his stance that just irked the heck out of me. When asking the audience to stand up and dance, he added: “You can all use the exercise!”. Hmmm.... there were quite a few heavy people in the audience and as true as that may be, his telling them that did not bode well for the rest of his set.

Matt: He was the first idol to come off as though he was having a blast on stage. His energy, enthusiasm and upbeat personality finally brought the crowd to its feet of its own volition. I don’t know what his future holds, but he would be an incredible opening act for any big name artist out there. His piano playing was amazing. I loved his set!!!!

Group song: Lil and Megan a big no-no – totally not into each other as a duet should be (remember Kris and Danny? Kind of like that), the duelling pianos song was great, Michael was really good, Anoop and the glasses... uh no!

Allison: Her first song with the guitar kind of felt a little flat. She was out of breath and could not finish some of the lines. She winced a couple of times... I wasn’t sure if it was because she was peeved at herself or from voice strain.... And then she answered my question by singing Cry Baby!!! Oh my God, she belted it out and wrung every ounce of emotion in that song! Amazing! I don’t know the song Barracuda and she sounded great.... That gravelly voice of hers really pierced the arena!

Danny: If you are a Danny fan, I would suggest jumping this part. There is just something really ‘icky’ about him. He comes off as very fake and full of himself. In one of his songs, can’t remember which his voice actually totally cracked and went off key... he kind of shrugged and got the last couple of notes to the song on key. I think he is experiencing vocal chords issues. Now the dancing... ah the dancing... his body shape just does not gives itself to any Latin/sexy dancing! It looked kind of ridiculous and then he had the gall to come over to where I was sitting dragging the poor mic stand along, and proceeded to hump the mic... but then just kind of straddled it as if it was a complete mystery to him what move should come next.... not a good look for you Danny... truly, don’t do it again...mmmk? And one last thing, did you not get the memo about wearing an undershirt to absorb your sweat? First it was the armpits... I might have overlooked that one, but then the chest and then the back... Maybe if you didn’t dance, you wouldn’t sweat? WHAT? Just a suggestion!!!!

Adam: Ah my Adam!!!! I had seen the videos. I had heard the voice on TV.... Nothing prepares you for Adam LIVE! From the second he steps on the stage, he sucks you right into his world! He does all these sexy moves which coming from anyone else (see above) would come off as crude or ridiculous... but with Adam, he makes you feel like it’s all tongue-in-cheek and just plain fun! WLL was especially rowdy tonight! His riding the mic was just mind-boggling.... I kept thinking that he would not go further down, but he kept going and going and going... quite the Energizer Bunny we have here! Starlight, as has been reported by others, does have a helium effect at the beginning. As it progresses and Adam sings lower, the helium effect seems to dissipate, but it was really quite remarkable. I think that because of his voice strain, the audio techs are trying to put some sort of sound effect to his voice... this may not be the best effect they should use. Mad World was ethereal. Adam made you feel like he was that little boy on his first day at school... I so wanted to hug him and tell him all will be well. Then when he started talking before Slow Ride, his voice cracked completely... He cleared his throat and managed to do his spiel about voting and introduced Allison. He definitely has some sort of voice problem... not enough to impair his spectacular singing to a general audience, but for fans who have watched and compared each concert, there is definitely strain there. He drank a lot between each song... good for him. Allison and Adam had a ball with each other during SR... Adam has taken to imitating Allison’s hand/arm movement that Kris made fun of in an interview... He teases her and she laughs it off... soooo cute! And then *thud* the Bowie Medley! Life on Mars is my favourite song from his set (I know... I’m probably the only one). There is just something intriguing in his British accent and he tells the story so well... he sucks me in every single time I’ve watched the video and to see it live!!!! Be still my heart!!! And then.... then... Fame *gasp*... the jacket comes off and Adam is going to have a blast and you all better enjoy it!!!! He just commands you to go along with the hot sexy swivelling hips and to have fun with him... and we all did! For Let’s Dance, tonight when he normally says: “One, two, three, come on people... etc.” He did not say anything at all... further proof that he’s protecting his ‘speaking’ voice... The moves in Fame and Let’s Dance are just so... so... I didn’t know hips could swivel like that... it’s like his pelvis is a ballbearing (pun intended) and it just gyrates in all directions... and then he has to go stand on that damn elevator that takes him away from us... *glares at damn elevator* and then... he’s just... gone... and he took all the oxygen in the arena with him... left none for any of us...

Kris: Frankly after Adam being wrenched away from our sight, I had nothing left.... I just plopped down in my seat and just tried to sort out all of the feelings Adam had brought forth... Sorry Kris! I kind of totally missed his first two songs, enjoyed Ain’t No Sunshine, waited for Hey Jude because I knew Adam would be back at the end of it. I think Kris needs smaller venues, more intimate to allow his style to truly shine.

Closing number: Matt and Scott and the pianos OK, Michael OK, Megan couldn’t be bothered to really get into it, Lil was barely audible, Anoop sounded good, Allison brought a little fire, Danny bleh. And then Adam and Kris VARRY VARRY GOOD!!!! They have a funny new dance going... Can’t really explain it, I’ll guess you’ll have to watch the video!

So that’s my take on all of them... Overall enjoyable, outstanding in the first half: Matt!

Now Adam, start planning that solo tour with all the theatrics... give us the dates... and we’ll be there!!! *have car, will travel*

Now, IMHO, this is what each of them would say if they could speak freely:

Michael: Please like me! I’m trying so hard and I’d love to make a living doing this.

Megan: Ach, I knew it wouldn’t work out... nothing ever does for me!

Scott: I can write, I can play the piano, I can sing, I can exercise (and rip my pants), I can eat and I do meetings really, really well!

Lil: Look if you don’t think I’m great... you’re just wrong!

Anoop: We all know that my IQ is higher than all of yours combined, and I’m only doing this singing thing until I figure out where to best spend my superior intelligence!

Matt: I’m having a ball... Are you guys enjoying yourselves too?

Allison: I’m here to rock you and rock you I will!

Danny: Ain’t I great? Truly amazing, aren’t I? But the thing is you can all be amazing, well maybe not as amazing as me, but amazing nevertheless, all you need is to believe that you are amazing and you automatically become amazing and don’t let hardships/death of a loved one deter you from your amazingness! It’s amazing what you can become in your own mind if you believe you are amazing!

Adam: If you let me entertain you, I will set you free! *and he does just that!*

Kris: I’m a simple guy and I just want to play music...mmmkk?

It was just so amazing to see Adam in the flesh... Kind of shocking that he is not just a picture or a two-dimensional video person, but real flesh and blood... and honestly, NO picture/video does him justice. There's an energy about him that does not translate to media of any kind. And he is MORE beautiful in person than in the media as well....

If anyone has not gone to the concert yet and has a chance to do it, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you move heaven and earth to get yourself to it!!!!
Well it turns out that my camera does GREAT sound, but meh video... I just finished editing the first half of the show and will have a download link in a bit.
