Founder and editor of, home of the awesomest fan community on the net. I love cheesy singing shows of all kinds, whether reality or scripted. I adore American Idol, but also love The Voice, Glee, X Factor and more!


  1. I am loving all these different projects for Adam. Nice to see the many opportunities are back after a year of virtual performances and fundraisers. Can’t wait to see him play the devil voice animated character, lol. And Clash of The Cover Bands sounds like fun. The Obamas project is more serious but looking forward to hearing the song he sings for this worthy civics project.

    And Adam sings a song on the Andrew Lloyd Webber Cinderella soundtract to be released in July. Plus his limited engagement in Vegas in October will help to finish this year on a strong note for fans. Exciting!!

  2. No doubt he will be terrific as the “devil.” We already know what the writer and executive producer think.

    Thrilled for Adam that he has so many great projects in the works.

    Recently his manager was answering fan questions. When asked about the musical he is working on, she said “you guys are going to lose your sh*t when we start unfolding the musical. But we aren’t ready yet so gonna be a bit more of a wait!”

    So exciting!!!

  3. I don’t doubt for a minute Adam will wow everyone in A Tale Dark and Grimm. I’m getting to think he is also a gifted comedic actor. Adam was pretty darn good in The Playmobil movie. The creator/producer/director from that movie heaped praise on him and said he would definitely call Adam for his next project.
