Glambert backs Mamasox for “American Idol”
“American Idol” is nearing its season finale next week amid questions about the show’s lackluster ratings and about who will replace alpha judge Simon Cowell. But if anyone has any questions about who everyone’s favorite runner-up, Adam Lambert, favors among the final three contestants, those doubts have been put to rest.
Glambert likes Mamasox.
The singer nicknamed Glambert last year for his “glam” persona and wild costumes told television network MTV that he favors Crystal Bowersox, the contestant nicknamed Mamasox, who is a 24 year-old mother with a young son. “I like her anti-establishment rebelliousness,” Lambert told MTV in a story posted on its website Tuesday.
Even so, the “For Your Entertainment” singer said he was unable to watch much of “American Idol” in recent weeks because he was touring Europe.
On Tuesday night, Bowersox will face off against Lee DeWyze and Casey James. A frontrunner from the beginning of this year’s competition, Bowersox has seen DeWyze emerge as a dark horse contestant.
Lambert knows something about that, because last year many “Idol” watchers expected he would take the crown, but the less flashy Kris Allen became the surprise champion.
