Samadhi is generally translated as "concentration" though a less misleading modern translations might include mental collectedness, effortless one-pointedness of mind, coherence of heart and mind, and so on.

PSY makes us laugh and dance, but Adele makes us cry and call our exes. You be your own judge, for the judges here have spoken (and it was mostly females voting, not that that could have had anything to do with their decision).
If we compare "Gangnam Style" to "Skyfall" or "Rolling in the Deep," PSY wins for dancing, but Adele crushes it for singing. She proves that again when her vocals are isolated from her live performances, which are so good she gets accused of lip syncing. (Adele would lose if she went up against "Gangnam Style LIVE").
