Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

I've been an Adam Lambert fan since the day I heard him sing Ring of Fire on American Idol. I always hated Simon's comments about the performance, not because he was so negative about such an amazing cover, but because of the prejudice and ignorance it suggested about the people of Nashville and the South in general.

I am sitting over on the other side of the world and I always had the impression that Tenesse was a great state for embracing new music - it gave us Elvis and the Grand Ol Opry for a start! Why categorise them as intolerant and unable to accept anything outside of their norms?

I'm a little saddened to see two almost identical previews in two days, from Knoxville and Nashville that only perpetuate the stereotype that Cowell pushed.

Fortunately, I am not a hater and I think these ugly previews are just occasional bigots with a platform. I'm pretty sure there are many people in Tenesse that aren't so prejudiced and narrow minded, including the Ryman Auditorium and all of those wonderful people that have made the shows sell outs.

Folks at the Ryman are going to have a blast.
