Heating up GMTV
I was glad to see that the intro package was great and I agree with Lorraine that he looked stunning - so glam and made up for the morning while the rest of us were still trying to look awake. His hair is very slick, eyes smouldering, skin all peachy and radiant. The white shirt without a jacket dresses him down just a touch and suggests he's ready to get down to business, but fun business. I think there was a fair amount of nervous laughter during the short interview, but the charm worked and the exchange was sweet.
I love that initial expression on Adam's face where he looks so fierce and powerful. Right from the start, we see that he inhabits the song. With the addition of the bejewelled jacket, sparkly spats and very tight trousers, he looks incredibly sharp and chic. The choreography as far as I can tell is the same as for the performances from Japan and is given an edginess from the jerky dance moves. I think the kooky dancers complement (when they're not obstructing our view of Adam) the performance as they shadow his moves rather than compete with him. They also lend Adam a more commanding and domineering presence, which is key to the interpretation of the song. The vocals are solid throughout, unaffected by the dancing, but they really pick up at the bridge where he sets them on fire.
