Ahhhh thanks for bringing back the memories!! This is one of my most fave performances from him.....that soulful voice that he has is just amazing singing this. And those pants aren't too bad either
Ha...Paula even makes reference to "dem jeans" in her comments at the end. I love Matt doing this song!
Ah memories... thanks for this. I also went and watched the save video again on here--- I just get all teary watching all the matt love that night!!
Sorry, we might be going a little off topic here, but I love re-watching The Save episode, too. I never cry when I watch American Idol, but I confess that I had TEARS OF JOY when they saved Matt. If it wasn't obvious before that night, I think the whole country realized that not only is Matt an exceptional musician, but he's also an exceptional human being. I always knew he was close with Danny, but I was kind of surprised when Kris, Adam and Allison tackled him and were hugging him so tightly. I noticed how Kris looked like he didn't want to let go of Matt (Ryan had to pull Matt back to center stage), and I was thinking that I wouldn't want to let go of Matt either! On the American Idol Extra show, I remember Ace Young saying 'you guys must really love Matt', and right away Danny and Adam spoke up with "We love Matt!" (said very enthusiastically!).
I know...off topic but this morning when I read this post, I too revisited some of the old episodes and before I knew it, almost two hours had gone by......I think I reviewed a few too many times. Anyway, getting back to some of the more recent stuff that's been going on (Matt-gate) I think it's important to remember that these guys all really like one another and respect each other's talents. It's the fans that are confrontational and overly, rabidly, protective of "their" idols that are creating headlines/controversy. Nothing bad is going on backstage, it's just the crazy fans. None, of course, from this forum! We're all good!

Sgr91: You guys have to see these photos. I'm guessing a pro took them but she (I'm assuming its a she) seem to be fascinated with a certain view. http://www.lambert-pics.com/thumbnails.php?album=260
OMG! for being such a adam fan she got some excellent and mighty FINE pics of OUR BOY...How do we get copies of these on our site??? especially the nice butt one?? haha
She may have started out being strictly an Adam fan, but I think we found another Matt convert! WOOOHOOO! I'm telling you, NO ONE can resist that booty.
Aside from looking at just the booty pics, I also enjoyed the close-ups. He's just so FIIIINE! How can it be than even Matt's eyelashes are beautiful? I noticed his eyelashes before, but they really stand out in these particular shots!

Jenna does such a thorough job of bringing over any reviews, blogs, tweets, etc. about the Idols Tour. Thank you for all your hard work!
If you don't mind, I would like to bring over as many concert reviews from the fans who have posted over on the MyIdol forum (americanidol.com). I will "take one for the team" and read through all the Adam/Kris stuff just to get to their opinions on Matt! LOL Of course, I'll just quote the important parts (when they mention Matt's performances). Keep in mind that most of these reviews come from people who weren't Matt fans to begin with.
from goodthing: Surprises from the first half- Scott was very good, as was Matt. The rest- meh.
from matteosmommy: And Matt sure did win my heart over.
from Liz54: I thought everyone did great. My order of enjoyment- Adam, Allison, Matt, Kris , Danny, Anoop, Scott, Megan, Michael and sorry- Lil last. ... the piano duet between Scott and Matt is worthy of a mention here as well..... fabulous.
from WormsAreFunny: Matty- He is an incredible musician/singer/performer and I enjoyed every moment of his set. Matty's performance was my second favorite of the entire show!!! FANTASTIC!!!
I love reading about all the people at the concerts who have realized what an amazing performer Matt is!

Hey Riley where have you been in chat during the cellcerts? We miss you!

Woo hoo, fresh from you tube.
Portland Oregon!! I had a sudden urge to watch this again. Pure dynamite! And dem pants! What a tour it was. Wish I could have seen that. Lol guess I´m getting emotional because of tonight´s AI with Tell Her About It.
