adam lambert sing one

Adam Lambert gets his text from Simon: He'll be doing U2's One.

Adam Lambert sings One by U2 and Cryin’ by Aerosmith on American Idol 8 Top 3

It's very "Mad World"-like, same shade of blue stage, same slow and controlled performance. Man, so soulful... this is going to make Adam's fans melt. Belts out the chorus, showing off his range; the audience is just shrieking as he hits and holds the high note, looks like he's going to cry after singing that crazy note.

Not amazing for me, but better than anyone else tonight by a mile. Wow, audience erupts, Adam's just standing there beaming as his parents look on.

Randy says he "went off melody". Kara says "you're an "amazing strategist, you did your own version". Paula calls it "a brilliant choice of song and superb performance." Simon says "It was a brilliant, brilliant performance."Kara said he just proved that he can take a song and do it in a completely different way (she's just figuring that out?).

Simon says flat out it's a "brilliant" performance (and a brilliant song choice). Adds if you're not in the finals it'll be one of the biggest upsets. Uh, I couldn't think of a bigger one....

I've heard some great versions of this songs -- U2, Mary J. Blige, Johnny Cash. Adam starts it at an unbelievably subdued level. It's just gorgeous. But it doesn't last long. He goes from gorgeous to shrieky -- and, I'm sorry, I hate reverting to that over-used descriptor, but there's just no better word to describe it -- in less than two seconds. That trick has worked for a lot of the songs that he's done, but it just sounds awful here. Arrangement's great, though.

Good luck Adam! Good luck Glamberts!

One Lyrics
Artist: U2

Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same
Will it make it easier on you now
You got someone to blame
You say...

One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
One love
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well it's...

Too late
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other
Have you come here for forgiveness
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
Well we
Hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt
One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other
