Johnny Cash must be rolling over in his grave

I posted before about Adam Lambert being the creepiest guy ever on American Idol. And then I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt.

I now maintain my first opinion. He is creepy. The creepiest. He's gross. His singing makes my ears bleed. I just don't get the love the judges have for this dude. Can someone explain it to me? I'd rather watch that weird Norman guy with the sparkly shirt and sweatbands, because at least while his performances were awkward, I laughed and didn't cringe in pain when I watched him.

Take a look at Adam's performance last night and tell me what you think. He's singing Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash though it doesn't resemble Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash at all. When he shrieks out "it burns, burns, burns" and lifts his shirt just enough to expose a little bit of stomach, I may have thrown up in my mouth a little.

I don't watch AI, but I watched about 5 seconds of this video, and wanted to kill myself. How is he still there?

I probably should have mentioned that it was Grand Ole Opry week on AI. That still doesn't excuse singing that song to sitar music. HATE!

I don't watch AI either (not since the blessed days of Clay Aiken). But you know, if I were a contestant and it was Grand Ole Opry week? I'd totally dress like Minnie Pearl.
