Crazy Time of Year
A little thumbnail of Adam lined up with the dancers popped up when I performed that fateful Google search. This didn't look like Adam, didn't quite fit in with my impression of Adam at the time and I wondered whether he had a namesake. This matter was put to rest as soon as I heard that unmistakable voice.
From the wide-mouthed lick of the finger in the blue light, I could tell this was going to be one sexy performance. The bassline kicking in is dangerously seductive as Adam lazily rolls his head, stretching as if just waking up, preparing for round two, moaning in horny recovery. The clinging red trousers and vest not only reveal a lot of skin but also Adam's lithe figure amongst other things. His movements are a dance of sexual foreplay and I remember thinking that no straight guy moves like that. There's much focus on the crotch as he sits open-legged and grabs it like a handle to pull himself up with. He prowls the stage like a feline with dance moves that pay homage to Michael Jackson, Elvis and Britney. There's one part in the song where he's a little late coming in, but I love that imperfection because to me it shows that he's totally absorbed in the moment. Just seconds later, we get the crowning note with that astounding riff and just when I think he can't go higher, he hits me with the most incredible sustained and powerful belt. I remember my eyes just widened and I gasped completely awestruck by this bare-footed other-worldly creature who looked like a manga character and was armed with a supernatural voice. I loved the moves that followed. There's something extremely sexy about the neck roll followed by the grace of the pirouette and the lap-dancer gyration back into the chair. He's on fire, which in turn arouses us, the audience. After it's over, we see Adam out of the character, beaming back a smile that would guarantee he would always have his way.
This was one sizzling performance that cranked up the heat, turning me on and teasing me enough to be fucking begging for it by the end. I watched it over and over. This was the performance that told me about Adam's shape-shifting abilities, his sexuality, his swivel hips, his boldness, his boyish charm, his irresistible sex appeal, his talent, his shockingly perfect, powerhouse vocals. This was the performance that got me really excited about him, willing him to push it further on AI and freak people out, eager to see what he would do next. This was what seduced me into falling for him, tipping me over the edge and getting me committed to following him and obsessing about him all this time. He makes us all crazy, but there's something so pleasant about that space, no?
