Adam: Hey, what do you want from me?
Me: How about 20 bucks?
Adam: What do you want from meeeee?
Me: A rainbow made of puppies and unicorns.
Adam: What do you want from me?
Me: Uh, the aforementioned 20 bucks and puppy unicorn rainbow are pretty much it. But, I am a little worried about the physics of that rainbow thing.
Adam: Just don't give up, I'm working it out.
Me: You're the coolest, Adam.
As opposed to the majority of Idol contestants, there's no denying that Lambert's talented. He's got every high note Whitney Houston has lost since she started snorting The Coke and he has more charisma in one fake eyelash than that dern Chris Allen. If you missed Lady Gaga's show and you're still in the mood to see a glammed-up crazy dude running around making out with bandmates and screaming on stage, see Adam wail 8 p.m. Tuesday at The Palladium Ballroom (1135 South Lamar St.). Doors are at 6:30 p.m. Allison Iraheta (a fellow Idol almost-winner) opens. Tickets are $39.50. Call 866-448-7849 or visit ticketmaster.com.
