American Idol 2010: Adam Lambert brands Andrew Garcia’s Hound Dog ‘boring’ (Video)

Dead man walking, Andrew Garcia, performed the Elvis classic – Hound Dog on this week’s American Idol show. Former runner up Adam Lambert didn’t pull his punches when mentoring Andrew – he straight out called it a boring performance.

"American Idol"'s Top Nine sang songs from the Elvis Presley songbook on Tuesday night's show -- and their mentor was none other than last year's runner-up Adam Lambert. Crystal Bowersox kicked off the night with the gospel-influenced Elvis tune "Saved." Randy Jackson complimented her: "Every week I say this like a broken record. That is the way to come out and give it up. You have this whole cool vibe. It could have been the second coming of Bonnie Raitt." Ellen DeGeneres joked, "I am tired of telling you how great you are. Fantastic." Kara DioGuardi told her, "Another solid performance from Crystal." And Simon Cowell said, "What I loved about that is you didn't choose an obvious song. You chose something that suited you. You didn't fall into the karaoke trap. Sounded great." Performing second was Andrew Garcia with the Elvis classic "Hound Dog." Randy commented, "I hate to say this,
