We saw Adam Lambert mentor the Season 9 “American Idol” contestants. Now he takes the stage to perform his hit “Whataya You Want From Me.”
But in between he took some time backstage to talk with Zap2it about the voting demographics and his favorite Season 9 Idols.
When asked about the Season 9 female struggling (they’ve had three women go home versus no men being eliminated yet), Lambert commented that it definitely shows that women are the ones that vote. So girls don’t vote for other girls? “Not as much as the boy they think is cute,” he quips.
Of course, everyone pounces on that. Which boy is the cutest? “You tell me!” Adam teases. “That’s up to you, not me. That’ll just be sensationalized and turned into another headline,” he laughs.
But seriously, Adam. Who are the stand-outs this season? “Vocally, it would be Michael. He’s probably my favorite voice,” says Adam. “Casey, Crystal, Lee. And then Siobhan and Katie are both really strong singers, they’re really good. It’s kind of early to tell, I think … They’ve still got time to develop and figure out what they want to be on that stage.”
So everyone but Tim, Andrew and Aaron? Got it.
