Last night was Michael Jackson night on American Idol. Each singer auditioned with a hit by the King of Pop.
In actuality, though, it was Adam Lambert night.
The theatrical performer caused Paula Abdul to cry - and Simon Cowell to label him as being in a league by himself - following an incredible rendition of "Black and White." The crowd gave him a prolonged standing ovation.
Also impressive, and a lock for next week: Danny Gokey and Lil Rounds.
Sadly, previous fan favorites such as Anoop Desai and Jorge Nunez were let-downs last night, failing to impress with their versions of "Beat It" and "Never Can Say Goodbye," respectively. We're afraid one of them might be sent home tonight.
Who is your preferred finalist: Danny Gokey or Adam Lambert?
