popout: Queen + Adam Lambert (ft. Nate Ruess) on 2013 iHeartRadio Music Festival
Yes! I found a video recording! Enjoy!!!
I totally missed this! I’m hoping to find a good video recording, but in the meantime, here’s a pretty good audience audio recording (uploaded by butterknife0204).
Ah, missed that it was the American Idol finale! Good thing there’s YouTube so I won’t have to miss out on this lovely duet (too short though!) 🙂
popout: Bridge Over Troubled Water
I haven’t been watching American Idol regularly lately, but from what I’ve caught so far – Candice should win, right? I loved her ‘Straight Up’ interpretation!
Anyway, tuned in tonight to reassure myself that Candice would survive for another week, and (1) surprised to see Paula Abdul pop up, and (2) even MORE surprised to see an AI alum I never expected to see back on American Idol! Clay Aiken himself (given the acrimonious history, hell must have frozen over, right?) reprising his old fan-favorite cover of “Bridge Over Troubled Water”. Wasn’t as bombastic as I recalled, but this understated interpretation is also nice.
Welcome back, Clay 🙂
