Yes, I know, I suck. I didn't liveblog either Top 7 shows, but I have really good excuses.
For the first show, I was at the in-laws, AKA Adam Lambert Fan Club, River City Chapter. We'd gone to dinner, and, by the time we got to my BIL's house, I'd missed the first two performances. Everyone else was just happy they'd arrived in time to hear Adam Lambert screech out "Born to be Wild." I distracted my two year-old nephew to keep him on the other side of the house with me, lest Adam's voice make his tiny ears bleed. I think there were notes that only dogs could hear. I was so dismayed that I married into a family that likes Adam Lambert, I didn't really pay much attention to the rest of the show.
(Side note to the in-laws: I love you guys, but, really, Adam?!)
This week, I had my trip to see my GI at UAB, and, by the time we got home and AI started, I was unconscious. I woke up just in time, you guessed it, to hear Adam sing. Lovely. :-/
I have a theory: only people who were not alive and sentient during the 70s are nostalgic for them. I remember the 70s, and they sucked. And the only things from the 70s that sucked more than disco: bellbottom pants, lines for gasoline, and Jimmy Carter as president.
(Side note to picky people: yes, I realize that you can't truly be nostalgic for something you haven't experienced, but I couldn't think of another word and watch the Braves game, too.)
Even though Adam destroyed the only disco song I actually like, that wasn't the outrage of the evening. The outrage? Randy Jackson saying that the top 7 was the best on AI ever. Seriously? Better than the top 7 that included Bo Bice and Carrie Underwood? I think last year's top seven was better, and I can only remember the two Davids. While no season breaks artistic ground (oh, good Lord, I sound like Kara now), this is the most boring top seven ever, dawg. Even my focus group at work agrees ;)
Next week's theme is Rat Pack standards. If you thought disco week was bad, this should be a hot mess. I'm not a Sinatra (*gasp* heresy!) or Sammy fan, but they better not defile a Dean Martin song, that's all I'm sayin'.
And now, a moment of silence for Anoop...
