Adam Lambert may be very busy preparing for his upcoming tour with Queen and promoting his sophomore album Trespassing, but that doesn't keep him from watching the show that launched his career. It seems that despite his very busy life, he makes time every Wednesday and Thursday to get his fill of American Idol.
When asked by a paparazzi who his favorite contestants are, he immediately replied that his favorites are Jessica and Joshua. That would be 16-year-old vocal powerhouse Jessica Sanchez and Louisiana native Joshua Ledet. As to why the American Idol alum likes those two contestants, he said it's because "they have soul."
He may be very happy in a few weeks. Jessica Sanchez has consistently been one of the judges' favorites throughout the entire competition. Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson and Steven Taylor didn't hesitate to use their one save to save her, before she even got through her song, when she was threatened with elimination. Joshua Ledet is a favorite too. The judges have repeatedly rated his electrifying and soulful performances as some of the best they've seen on the competition.
In just a few short weeks, Adam Lambert will get to see whether his wish comes true. The finale takes place on May 23. Even if he doesn't get his wish, at least he'll be able to see them on the summer tour.
