I'll have to squee from the sidelines - we don't get our turn til FRIDAY - what the hell!!!! But probably best to put some space between Adam and all The Voice Australia music which is available for purchase after last night's performances (counts as 2 votes which is brilliant whoever thought of it). Keith Urban greatest hits collection is #1 album right now which also counts as a The Voice thing seeing he is one of the judges...
The vibes are great and universe is moving in his favor. GO Adam.
Now I am on this Metacritic kick. Did you all know that Kelly Clarkson's average metacritic score for her four albums is 64? Her highest, All I Ever Wanted, scored 70, less than Adam's first album. Her current album scored 62, tied for her lowest.
And my perfectly cynical response from my favorite H.L. Mencken is "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public." ::)
All this time and it is finally Mapril, and along with Mapril comes the Adam storm we've long been waiting for. I got two CD's in the mail today, and I'll download one from iTunes. It has been such a long wait, but Adam has really delivered big time. I am so proud of him and of the fans for sticking by him, calling, requesting, voting and tweeting and generally supporting him in any way possible!
I'm planning to carry my enthusiasm and appreciation for the new album into doing all I can to promote the current single and the album.
The music is so good! I love it!
Count me in with JUniemoon in saying I'm feeling so much love for all of you as I listen to this incredible album. What a journey. I'm so glad you have been part of it with me. The music and you will forever be entwined, each making the other even better.
I'm in Seattle and am just downloading from ITunes right now!!! YAY!!!
Wow, Adam was so hot in ALL his performances today, and that Billboard interview was wonderful--I especially liked his impression of Sauli! As he's said, Sauli is a firecracker (and i think Adam really needs someone who will give as good as he gets).

ayleim: Just checking - so there were NO Adam-sightings in the performance show right? Then I don't have to worry about being near the TV later tonight, I can just listen from the kitchen. :D

minnie12: this is great, Sauli deserves the support. There's no negativity here and that's nice.

minnie12: Nice to see all the pics of Sauli and his friends. Has a lot of female friends. Goes out a lot with Ade?

blueberry: A tech question. When I post, I'm stuck in BB Code, can't get back to Preview. Any ideas? I have Preview as default in my profile, but that doesn't help.
May 18, 2013 23:56:59 GMT -5
Q3: blueberry. there should be a two labels on tabs at the bottom of the REPLY box -- one labeled Preview and one labeled BBCode. Can you see these or are they gone?
May 19, 2013 2:08:40 GMT -5
blueberry: Q3, I can still see the labels, but when I click on the Preview label, nothing happens. And every time I start a new post, it automatically takes me to BB Code. Otherwise it doesn't matter, but posting pictures would be easier in Preview (copy+paste).
