i don't want to diss Von or anything but how can someone be a fan of that singing & his strange facial expressions during performances but then say Adam's vocals suck and that he is too dramatic.. this is one of the manyyyy things i can't understand this year.. and it just proves that these people have double standards and just simply don't know what the hell they're talking about so i just disregard it all thumbdown.gif

That makes me think of how someone called Adam the second coming of Sam Harris. I grew up in Japan, so I had no idea who Sam Harris was until I read that comment and followed the link, but I immediately thought of Von when I saw that, and not just because of the song choice. (Von has one of the better voices this season, I think, but buddy, take a deep breath. That last effort in Hollywood didn't impress me; he forced normal too much, if that makes sense. I wish him well this week.) Anyway, I do understand how Adam's expressions might be seen as theatrical by some (because that's what he's been trained to be, and he's now trying to train himself not to be (or so he implied by trying to listen to Kara's advice). It shows a lot of self-awareness that he is working on that right from the get go, right from the second performance of his first song. But his singing isn't theatrical. "Satisfaction" was certainly a throwback to the glam/golden days of rock, but that's a completely different ballpark from doing, I dunno... "Oklahoma!" haha.gif I honestly think people slap the "theatrical" label on him because he's a bigger presence than we're used to representing that Idol stage on our TV sets, and the largest portion of his musical experience thus far seems to have been in musical theater. It's the easiest label for anything big and bold from him. Of course, if he goes soft and quiet now, they'll cry "he's a poser!" rolleyes.gif

I know, I don't get it either

And I don't understand when people say they don't understand him. It's like what is there to understand about him. He's a god damned good singer and he's a sexy beast. Enough said

And then he says that he whines too much which I don't understand because I kind of like how he sounds, he sounds like a rock star when he sings. Yeah like since when does everyone have to sing like everyone else on the show. Like really? Come on?.. Like everyone is going to sound the same?!


It's like they expect him to be David Cook or Kelly Clarkson 2.0 and what they are getting is only himself.

Agreed with everything in this post... i just feel like going "okay people, just admit you've got a weird irrational hate for Adam for some reason, or maybe he's just not your cup of tea and that's okay, but stop making up stuff".
lol exactly, wtf satisfaction is a performance song not a deep, emotional song. Adam understood this and that's why he performed the way he did. His almost-crotch grabs are enough emotional connection for me, bwahaha.

Stage presence. OMG, when I watched Adam perform Satisfaction, the stage presence blew me away more than the song (this is no insult to his singing wink.gif )
