With music from the rat pack days, the most talented group of American Idol top 5 finalists crooned some of that era’s most nostalgic songs during this week’s competition.

It was Adam Lambert who took the gold medal by several laps.He sung a slightly rock ballad version of “Feeling Good “which was made famous by Nina Simone and Sammy, Davis, Jr. during earlier releases years ago.

Lambert’s performance electrified the Idol audience and brought them to their feet. It prompted Judge Paula Abdul to call him the Michael Phelps of this year’s competition. She echoed the other three judges’ praise for his consistent performance week after week.

Again, I believe that Adam Lambert is the most formidable contestant to be featured on the American Idol stage since the show started 8 years ago. He is unique and is the kind of music artist that will really make his mark in the industry.

I also want to note that Danny Gokey also upped his game this week with his performance of “Come Rain or Come Shine.”
