Idol Tour Reviews - Kansas City

The Kansas City Star has an outstanding review for Adam Lambert, a good one for Allison Iraheta, and ... well, the fans of the others probably shouldn't read on.

Here's what the reviewer had to say about Adam: "Not only was Adam Lambert the clear crowd favorite, he was easily the night’s most substantial artist. He isn’t merely good by the often dubious standards of 'American Idol.' Lambert’s imaginative interpretations of unlikely material were brilliant. His powerful voice seemed to shake the rafters during Led Zeppelin’s 'Whole Lotta Love.'"

And Allison: "The hellacious screech of impish Allison Iraheta, 17, can also envelope an arena. Her bluesy duet with Lambert on Foghat’s 'Slow Ride' was excellent. Iraheta’s vicious readings of Pink’s 'So What,' the Janis Joplin version of 'Cry Baby' and Heart’s 'Barracuda' were also entirely convincing. Just as important, she brought a carefree sense of fun that was otherwise largely absent Sunday."

I strongly disagree with that last line. There isn't one person in the Top 10 who doesn't convey a sense of fun in their set. The concert is nothing if not fun.
