UPDATE: ALEX LAMBERT’S VOTING PAGE IS NOW UP!!
Click HERE to VOTE NOW!!!
Time to start limbering up those finger voting muscles, Alex Lambert fans!
Michael Slezak, Idol recapper extraordinaire for TVLine.com (and one of the loudest voices of outrage following Alex’s elimination last year), is holding an American Idol All-Time Greatest Performance Bracket Tournament, including “64 of the most goosebump-inducing, Gospel-hand-inspiring, tear-jerking moments in the 10-season history of Fox’s ubiquitous talent competition”. And of COURSE Alex’s memorable cover of John Legend’s “Everbody Knows” is in the running.
If you’re interested in the nitty gritty of how the tournament works (if all you care about is Alex, skip to the next paragraph), there are four divisions in all: Power Vocalist/Soul Males (Alex’s division), Rock/Country/Alternative Males, Soul/Pop Divas, and Pop/Rock/Country Divas. Each division includes 16 nominees. Every day, half of these are pitted against each other in pairs in a 72-hour fan-voting duel, with four of the eight moving on to the next round (click here to see the full bracket).
OK it sounds a bit confusing, but here’s all you really gotta know:
The first round of voting for Alex begins TOMORROW (we’re assuming) at 1:00 p.m. ET, with voting open for the next 72 hours.
How to vote:
As soon as it’s up, we’ll update this post with the link to the page where you can vote for Alex (or follow @MichaelSlezakTV on Twitter to get it direct). Once it’s up, visit the page and VOTE. You can only cast your vote once, so make sure to also vote from your laptop, your co-worker and/or significant other’s computer, your smartphone, and so on… just get creative and VOTE or forever relinquish the right to call yourself Alex Lambert SNAF. (Oh and needless to say, SPREAD THE WORD any way you can!)
In this first round, Alex is going up against Danny Gokey’s “Come Rain or Come Shine”…we so got that, right? Then, in the next, he’ll be battling it out with Clay Aikin. We’ll keep you posted on how the voting goes and let you know when it’s time to get back in the ring for round two, so check back here (or follow us on Twitter) for regular updates.
GO ALEX GO!!!!!
