The Reviews Are In: Adam Lambert on GlamericanIdol!

Posted in Adam Lambert with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2010 by Claudia

People Magazine

Adam Lambert appeared as mentor on American Idol Tuesday, April 13 and man, did he knock it out of the park! Honest, constructive, unfiltered, magnificently Elvis-ified, Lambert told ’em like it was, and gave the current Idol contestants the verbal spankin’ they all so deserved. Virtually every news outlet praised Adam for his on-spot critiques and advice.

The media response to Adam’s appearance on American Idol last night has been massive! So get comfortable, GlamFans. Sit back, relax, grab a cuppa whatever, and enjoy the #GlamericanIdol news wave as it washes over us!!!

Hilarious commentary from MTV’s Michelle Collins at Best Week Ever: http://www.bestweekever.tv/2010-04-13/american-idol-liveblog-of-mics-and-mentor/. More hijinks from MTV’s Jim Cantiello (this one had me laughing so hard at the park other moms were looking at me like I was insane!): http://newsroom.mtv.com/2010/04/14/american-idol-recap-adam-lambert/

From the always lovely Lyndsey Parker of Yahoo Music: http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/realityrocks/338406/american-idol-top-9-elvis-has-most-definitely-left-the-building/. Here’s one that made me chuckle (and proud) from Zoiksonline: http://www.zoiksonline.com/2010/04/adam-lambert-is-back-on-american-idol.html

Adam responds to remarks made by AI producer Ken Warwick at  http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/04/14/adam-lambert-american-idol-ken-warwick/. Here’s another one from EW (also kinda funny): http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/04/14/american-idol-adam-lambert-ryan-seacrest/.

People Magazine had this to say about the evening: http://tvwatch.people.com/2010/04/14/emidolem-big-mike-is-back/. LOVE this quickie from Time: http://tunedin.blogs.time.com/2010/04/13/american-idol-the-final-nine-part-ii/

The Los Angeles Times’ Idol Tracker got the scoop directly from the Glam-horses mouth. Adam reveals his concert tour will start in June- wheee!! http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/americanidoltracker/2010/04/adam-lambert-on-his-idol-return-mentoring-the-top-9-and-elvis.html.

There is more, much more out there. But most of it is repetitive and not very original, so I’ll spare you, GlamFans. If you find anything else that I’ve missed worth printing, let me know. And don’t forget to tune into American Idol tonight on Fox to see Adam perform a song (or two??)!

Hugs!!

Adam Lambert GlamIdol Countdown!!

From Niclas

American Idol has been difficult to endure this season. Call me biased, but Adam Lambert totally spoiled it for me. No one else compares to the talent and excitement he brings to the stage! I watched the show last night, April 6th, with a whole new perspective however! Mr. Lambert was asked to mentor the contestants on April 13th and 14th (and boy, do they need help!!)!! So proud of him, can’t think of a better artist to advise the Season 9 contestants! Here are Adam’s tweets about it:

“It’s true! In addition to performing on Idol April 14th, I will be mentoring the top 8 on the 13th. I feel honored to be asked. Even though I’m just at the start of my recording career, I hope to lend some insight as one who’s been thru the Idol adventure. excited!! Don’t worry America: I will be beyond family friendly. Relax and enjoy. For Your Entertainment.”

Lots of press about this exciting news came out within the past 24 hours. Here’s a sampling:

Jazz Hands And Glitter!

Posted in Adam Lambert with tags , , , on January 12, 2010 by Claudia

Think I overdosed a bit on jazz hands and glitter last night!! Between his Fuse interviews (repeated over and over I might add!) and the American Idol Season 8 reruns last night I should probably go to Adam Lambert detox today (not)! My husband came in the room where I was watching TV last night and he said I looked like I was in Adam heaven (sick I know, and I mean that in the best possible way!).

To the FUSE interview- not too much more info here than has been provided in the past. We heard about Adam’s Idol experience, people who shaped him creatively, and (the part I liked best) how he was bored with his life before Idol last year!! Watch it here:

See the rest at AdamLambertWorld101’s YouTube page at http://www.youtube.com/user/AdamLambertWorld101.

Watching the final three on AI8 last night was awesome…so many nuances I never noticed the first time around (like when they played “Starlight” behind Danny Gokey’s return to his home town, and Adam’s hometown visit to Miramar AirForce base where he sang the “Star Spangled Banner”! What a thrill!!

Finally, here’s a fabulous scoop…MTV just released a sneak peek of Adam’s Whataya Want From Me video!!! OOOOOOO, what a tease!!!! Here it is: http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1629560/20100112/lambert_adam_american_idol_.jhtml. CAN.NOT.WAIT!!!!!!

MMMMWah!
