Adam Lambert Update – December 11, 2016
Apologies for the absence. RL has gotten too busy! But we couldn’t let Adam’s XFactor UK performance slide by without sharing and flailing! Enjoy!
BUT FIRST, THIS TRANSCENDENT MOMENT
Watch this unforgettable performance by Patti Smith at the Nobel Prize ceremony, where she sang “A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall” in honor of Bob Dylan. Her authentic, heart-rending, vulnerable performance brings home the power of music. Worth reading: Amanda Petrusich’s essay in the New Yorker, which addresses the controversy over the choice of Dylan for the Literature award: “Has Dylan conferred great benefit to mankind? Listening to Smith sing his song—and watching as audience members, dressed in their finest, wiped their eyes, blindly reached for each other, seemed unable to exhale—the answer felt obvious. The answer was on their faces.”
Adam slays with Saara Aalto, and isn’t all that eye contact and chemistry at the end to die for? Who wouldn’t want to be in Saara’s shoes?

The Sun – ROCK IDOLWho is Adam Lambert? Queen singer, American Idol runner-up and LGBT activist – what we know “…Adam’s superb vocal command and extreme range have seen him widely praised for his vocal prowess, and the star reportedly had his voice insured for $48 million in 2012. He is also known for his theatrical performance style and ability to showcase his individuality with flamboyant stage shows – his tours have sold out across the world to critical acclaim.”
“A multi-octave vocal range and a well-developed sense of theatricality are just two of the talents that have helped Adam Lambert transform from ‘American Idol’ runner-up to international recording star. Clearly Adam Lambert is not slowing down anytime soon, and we hope to see much more from him! Thanks for voting, and congratulations #Glamberts!”
