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!!!

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??)!
