On tonight’s “American Idol” episode, you had a chance to see Adam Lambert and Chris Daughtry working alongside some of the show’s current crop of contestants to show them how to perform and present the best side of themselves to an audience. That’s not an easy thing to do, especially if you are an extremely young contestant and you don’t know the ins and outs of the industry already.
In the video below, you can get a little bit of a further explanation from both Adam and Chris about why they were both happy to sign up for this, and why they feel like their experience was necessary to make this whole “Randy Jackson workshop” a success. (The irony of course here is that we feel like both parties involved actually had a whole lot more to say to some of the contestants than what we saw from Randy himself.)
Personally, we love the idea of there being former “American Idol” stars that come in as mentors, at least if the producers ever did decide that they wanted to do something like that. Why not bring in a Kelly Clarkson or a Carrie Underwood or a David Cook? Bring people in who have had great success, and know how to make someone successful not just on the show, but also after. There have been plenty of people, after all, who have done well on TV and faded out sooner after that.
Are you happy that Adam and Chris are on board with this season, and that there are so many new ideas for the season? Share all of your thoughts below, and also head over to the link here if you do want to read our full review for the top ten performance show for the ladies.
