American Idol: Adam Lambert sings ‘Play That Funky Music’ (Video)


Adam Lambert once again brought the house down and the audience to its feet with his dynamic performance of Wild Cherry‘s “Play That Funky Music.”

It was a ridiculous song choice to me but the 26-year-old theater actor somehow gave an extraordinary performance.

Adam truly defies vocal limits. He is the most consistent performer in the group and he gives the most unforgettable performance every week.

Paula: “True genius does not fulfill expectation, true genius shatters it.” Then she compares Adam to Steven Tyler and Mick Jagger.

Simon: “That was very brave. It was original.”

Randy: “You’ve got that voice… you worked it out. You’re definitely in the star zone baby.”

Kara; “Every week I cannot wait to get to the show and see what you’re gonna do next. It was like studio 57 up in here tonight.”

Adam is a very talented singer. But, to compare him with the two rock n’ roll gods is totally insane. Paula doesn’t know what she’s saying. Would Mick Jagger play that funky music? I don’t think so.
