The winner of American Idol is…

You may not care to watch the show, but this guy is probably the best singer and future rock band frontman since Freddie Mercury of Queen.

While a lot of folks are comparing his androgenous looks to Ziggy Stardust/David Bowie, the looks obscure the fact that this guy has charisma and talent in abundance. I think it’s funny that Adam Lambert has already gone through his dramatic phase, making a living singing in stage productions. There’s little need for the extra dramatics, because he’s already done the understudy bit. Going to the stage would be a step back for Lambert now.

The only thing about talented people with the flair for the dramatic is that you just don’t know who’s under the mask. (That way with a lot of folks, true!) So, we don’t know how this guy is going to turn out.

Anyway, give a listen to the upper register of this singer if you haven’t heard this already.
