Adam Lambert’s Idol Feast – Mad World
“Because he is a pumpkin pie of a person” — Quotes about Adam from TWOP’s “Jacob”. Reposted by Gypsy Scribbles, These are so vivid and entertaining, they just called out to be combined with the performance videos for a multimedia journey back down this beloved memory lane.
Ryan: “Adam. Back in the day. Ever wondered?” HA! Yeah, I’m going to need extensive photo reference to understand how we got from a little baby to this. Assuming 29 January 1982 isn’t actually just the date his spacecraft crash landed on a farm. Aquarian and an alien? It’s all starting to make sense.
“Mad World,” the not-Tears For Fears version, sung sitting on a white chair, lit by unearthly blue light. Maybe Adam actually is Donnie Darko. I could buy that. He sings it right at that sweet spot at the place where his voice is high but still strong, and then all the falsetto is completely unscreechy. It’s understated and confident, and very beautiful. Ethereal, that’s the word you’re going to be hearing about this. The crowd goes absolutely nuts. What a lovely rendition, and way better than the rest of the night. Simon Cowell gives his ass a standing ovation, is how awesome it was.
