'American Idol' Get Glam as Adam Lambert Mentors, Is Praised for Tongue Action

Categories: American Idol

No one can compete with the force that is Bowersox
​In what was either a Freudian slip or a bid to stir up controversy, Ryan Seacrest commented to Adam Lambert on American Idol Tuesday night, "My tongue is not nearly as talented as yours."

Sadly, that was one of the most exciting parts of this season of American Idol.

Even though the theme was Elvis, the show proved to be just as boring as ever, even with Glambert as guest mentor. It's sad that Adam is more exciting than 8 out of 9 of the contestants now (Crystal Bowersox excepted), but that is how it's going. Except for Tim Urban, who continues to surprise week after week--will he or won't he get eliminated? My hope is that Urban wins it.

In the bottom three Wednesday will be Andrew Garcia, whose jazzed-up version of "Hound Dog" was still boring; Aaron Kelly, who turned in another lackluster performance but is so freaking cute in the process; and Siobhan Magnus, who will finally be in the Bottom Three because her singing sucked--even though it's really awesome she rejects labels, and I'd love to be her best friend. Kelly should be going home because even though he's impressive for a 16-year-old, he's not good enough to compete with big dogs such as Bowersox (and hopefully Urban).

It was great that Lambert came back as guest mentor because he had perspective no other mentor could have--being both a contestant and a touring musician. It would be great if, finally, Kelly Clarkson came on one day as the true veteran "Idol" and mentored the contestants.
