Adam Lambert didn’t disappoint on Rock Night on American Idol this week, heading straight for a greats with a rendition of Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love.
On the Adam Lambert scale of interpretations, it was perhaps the least adventurous he’s been, but why mess with the greats! It certainly didn’t hurt him at all with the judges and the audience.
Randy said “This is the Adam that I love, dude…you are a rock star tonight…you and slash should make a record.” Kara said “you are more than a rock star you are a rock GOD.” Paula, “Your a whole lotta perfect” Simon said, “I thought the performance was a little understated….teasing!…it was one of my favorite performances you’ve ever done…nobody can top that now.”
Here’s two videos of Adam Lambert singing Whole Lotta Love on American Idol May 5. Note the quality in the first one isn’t great, but includes video footage. The second one is simply the whole song sung by Adam.
