'American Idol': Rock Week mentor Slash digs Adam Lambert

This week’s American Idol mentor, Slash, is already praising frontrunner Adam Lambert, via Twitter. The guitarist, who emphatically tweeted “I’m going to attempt to make ‘Rock Week’ on American Idol exactly that’ on April 29, has followed with other messages to his 14,677 followers: “The contestants from AI picked some really cool songs for next week, thank god!” on May 1, and “Those AI kids can sing their asses off, especially Adam” on May 2. We’ll see the fruits of Slash’s labor tonight, when American Idol’s final four take the stage.
