Oh wow - I just went and listened to Come to Me, Bend to Me. Incredible!
This guy's voice and his control AND range is beyond anyone else I've heard on Idol.
Yeah, I have to admit I'm in the group that totally LOVED his ROF version. Listened to it again and it just makes me go, "wow". I loved the Middle Eastern flair and the vocals. (someone else on here pointed out what those vocal scales are).
And then last night - he practically brought me to tears I was so impressed.
For me, he's the one to beat. I actually am hoping he doesn't win as some of the non-winners have had a lot more freedom in recording. I would go to an
Adam Lambert concert or buy a CD. I may even consider going to the tour - just to see/listen to him.
