Fan Fiction: Adam Lambert

First, if you missed it, here's the video of Adam Lambert's performance last night. (That link probably won't work for long, as Idol is rigorous about policing.)

In honor of this, and spurred by Not So Anonymous Mom, I'm writing one scene of fan fiction, though it really writes itself:

The first seven contestants had finished their performances of Songs From the Year You Were Born and were happy and relaxed as they sat piled on the cushy couches and chairs in front of a monitor in the green room to watch Adam's performance. They watched in silence and in awe. When it was over, after they'd watched Simon Cowell give Adam a standing ovation, Anoop, head in his hands, said aloud what they were all thinking, "What the hell am I doing here? Why am I even bothering?"

Update 8/15/10: For blog visitors who were directed to this post, I suspect you're looking for this post instead.

Now I'm feeling really old. I bought that Tears for Fears album (on vinyl) in the summer of 1983 during my little stint at Oxford.
