‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert’s ‘Voice’ performance, Phillip Phillips news

We’re doing an abridged version of “American Idol” notes today so that we can focus really on one thing primarily: the performance by Adam Lambert on the finale of “The Voice” in China that we teased yesterday.

Overall, there were two songs that the season 8 star performed (in part alongside contestant Zhang Wei) in “Trespassing” as well as landmark hit “Whataya Want From Me.” Really, the performances are just about as you would expect from a performer of Adam’s caliber: they are fun, exciting, and his style really actually meshes well with some of the bright colors that are present on the familiar “Voice” set.

As we mentioned yesterday, we know that this performance really marks a great opportunity for Adam into not just getting his music into China, but allowing people there to see a little bit more of who he actually is. Piracy runs rampant in the country, and if he can find a way to have consumers actually want to support him via buying his material, this could go a long way considering that this is the most populous country in the world.

A new Phillip Phillips note – For those of you interested in getting yet another update on the reigning champ’s coronation song “Home,” you will be happy to know that the song is still going strong. On the Hot AC chart this week, the track is still sitting pretty at its #8 spot, and is even closing on #7 for the spot.

Meanwhile, the song is also holding strong at #29 on the top 40 chart … where it will hopefully continue to gain momentum in the weeks ahead.
