So after watching Queen night on American Idol, followed by The Show Must Go On: The Queen and Adam Lambert Story, here are my take-aways.
First, the existing version of American Idol is horrendous. The contestants, who barely knew who Queen was, could not handle the Freddie Mercury vocals. Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan did not say one bad word about the bad singers.
On the other hand, watching the Queen and Adam Lambert special made me miss the former Idol judges of Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, and Randy Jackson (not so much Kara Dioguardi), who were the judges when Adam Lambert was on the show.
Queen, featuring Adam Lambert will be playing in Philadelphia this August.
