I’ve never been a fan of American Idol. Sure, I watched on occasion, but I am not a big fan of pop music, and I think Simon is just mean sometimes. And mean people suck.
This season, however, I felt compelled to watch the auditions– specifically San Francisco– because my friend’s son auditioned there. I’ve never met Adam Lambert, he’s been out there trying to make it (and succeeding) in the world during the time I’ve known his dad.
So for the first time, I’ll be paying attention to American Idol, and rooting for Adam, because it’s fun to see the people around you succeed. I wish I had the hutzpah to run full force into the world when I was Adam’s age. Obviously his confidence in himself is a testament to his parents. So good job!
And my wish for everyone is that they have the confidence and the persistence to hone their talent, whatever it may be, and get out there and live your dreams…. I know I am finally doing it.
Join me in wishing Adam the best. He’s really got some talent, and he has excellent taste in music (probably a hat tip to his dad is in order on that one)
