Adam Lambert Gets Satisfaction from Semifinal Audition

by at . Comments

There were two big winners from last night's second round of semifinal auditions on American Idol.

  1. Adam Lambert.
  2. Anoop Desai.

Allow us to explain:

Lambert put on the best performance - by far - of an otherwise woeful series of auditions. Yes, Allison Iraheta surprised the judges and the viewers. But Lambert was the true star.

He closed the show with a rendition of "Satisfaction" by The Rolling Stones that Simon called "brilliant" and caused Paula to yammer something about how the nation was attending a special Adam Lambert concert.

So, why was Desai, who peformed last week but did not advance to the finals, also a winner? Because no other contenders emerged last night, especially considering that two singers (aside from Lambert, of course) will be voted through to the next round tonight.

This means that Anoop will have very little competition during next week's Wild Card round. We expect him to make the finals, after all.

Who was your favorite peformer this week?

Noop-dog for the win. I can't wait to hear his voice again! I don't like Adams voice, too femme.

ANOOP is absolutely amazing! He's definitely going to make it to the finals!
Adam on the other hand is a whole bunch of screaming, with a lot of over-the-top-ness, with a touch of annoying-ness!

Adam was great, but needs to stop screaming. Allison was also great. I wanna see Matt Giraud go back to his soulful songs!

I AGREE. Anoop is going to OWN everyone in the wildcards. Last night's show was even worse than the first week's. Anoop is definitely moving on to the wildcards, and then to the top 12!
