Adam Lambert Week – September 16-22, 2012
Adam Lambert hosting Maryland marriage equality fundraiser at 9:30 Club Glam-rock pop star and “American Idol” alum Adam Lambert is entering the Maryland marriage equality debate by headlining a fundraiser next week not in Maryland, but in D.C. Lambert will perform Tuesday at the 9:30 Club at an event sponsored by Marylanders for Marriage Equality, an organization trying to get out the “yes” vote — a vote in favor of same-sex marriage — on Question 6 on this November’s Maryland ballot….read more
Adam Lambert to Appear on “The Voice of China” Adam Lambert has just made a lot of Chinese Glamberts happy because he has confirmed that he will be appearing on the finale of “The Voice of China.” Adam recently opened an account on a microblogging Chinese website called “Weibo.” Weibo is like Twitter in the United States and is extremely popular in China. Adam posted on his Weibo account, “Hello Shanghai! I’m going to appear live on the finale of The Voice of China on September 30. I am so excited and can’t wait to visit!”
This is the first season of The Voice of China, which is a singing reality show in the same franchise as The Voice in the US. Adam has not appeared on the US version of the show yet, but he did stop by The Voice of Holland during his Glam Nation tour in 2010. He took time out during his sound check to chat with some of the contestants. During their chat, Kim de Boer showed Adam a video of when she performed his single Whataya Want From Me for her audition on the show. Lambert praised her singing, saying “Great, good job. That was amazing, I love it.” The four contestants also sang part of Whataya Want From Me acoustically for him during their meeting. During their chat, Adam talked with the contestants about how his life has changed since American Idol, his tour and their current jobs.

PRESS AND BLOG PICKSThank you Adam Lambert Live for posting this translation of Adam’s interview from INROCK October 2012 August photo shoot, translated from Japanese “The Bon Jovi guitarist opens up to THR about his new label, personal struggles, how Jon Bon Jovi factors into the equation, plus his thoughts on singing competitions — and Adam Lambert.” This Adam Lambert kid? I think he’s really, really good. [American Idol] builds stars and that excites me. I do not have the time to give to a show like that. Maybe down the road at some point I would consider it. I would be good at it. I have been a mentor on X Factor all over the world and Simon Cowell is a friend of mine. I have been a mentor on Idol in many different countries. I had Chris Daughtry out on the road with us. It’s been a fun show to watch with my daughter and I really get off on it and there is a lot of great talent that comes off that show…..read more “DJ: Lambert song a ‘blatant ripoff'” Wolfgang Gartner, the DJ-producer, on Monday criticized Adam Lambert’s song “Never Close Our Eyes” for sounding structurally similar to DJ-producer Deadmau5’s megahit “Ghosts N Stuff.” Gartner wrote on Twitter: “wow this Adam Lambert song on the radio ‘close my eyes’ is a completely blatant ripoff of Ghosts n Stuff. Chords, vocal melody, everything.” Then Gartner asked Deadmau5 on Twitter, “sound familiar?” Deadmau5 (who headlines Saturday at club XS) responded, “*sigh* whatevs.” But Deadmau5 guessed Lambert didn’t “produce” the song: “They just pay the kid to show up and sing.” Gartner agreed. To be fair, Deadmau5’s “Ghosts N Stuff” is influential and an electronic masterwork, while Lambert’s pop song is different enough to be neither. I sent a request for comment from Lambert via Twitter, but no response came as of my deadline. deadmau5- Ghosts N Stuff – listen and decide for yourself. To me it sounds like a piece of MJ music repeated ad infinitum. ~X
TV Line – Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban Joining Mariah & Randy on Idol: What Do We Want From Them? Michael Slezak: “I thought I’d dole out a little bit of friendly advice to Urban and Minaj as they embark on their “Idol journeys,” boiling it down to four bullet points apiece that they can print out and bring with them to the first round of Season 12 callbacks in New York City on Sunday afternoon. (For the record, I’m vehemently opposed to a four-person panel — there’s already too much yapping and not enough singing with three — but why gripe about what cannot be changed, no?) Without further ado…” Read More
Gather – Adam Lambert: No ‘American Idol’ Judge Spot This Season “There are a lot of disappointed Glamberts because the American Idol judges have finally been revealed and Adam Lambert is not on the panel. Fox has announced that the new judges will include Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, and Keith Urban. In addition, despite rumors that he would move to a mentor position, Randy Jackson will be returning as a judge.”
