While doing rehearsals for his new wild, Michael Jackson-type American Music Awards performance last night and amid a thundercloud of hot theater lights and special-effects fog, Adam Lambert governed the sprawling stage while gripping a microphone in his two-gloved hands and donning a tight T-shirt slathered with an image of David Bowie's face.
"Let's do it faster," the ebony-haired singer prods a choreographer.
If the live performance is wild, wait till you hear the new Adam Lambert CD that holds back nothing about his sexuality.
Some are remade classics, some are all new but among those on the sure to be bestseller, are the songs: "Drag Queen, Dancing Queen", "Closet To You", "Midnight At The Balls!", "We're Coming Out All Over", "Down To The Cross-Dressing" and "Butch's Tune" on side one and "The Dirty Lowdown", "Judy In Disguise", "Papa's Got A Brand New Fag", "The Banana Bloat Song", "On The Bottom, I'll Be Glad I Got Em", "A Buggery Built For Two" and the beautiful all-new "Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Then All Will Be Well!"
Back to the practice session:
"Tell them it should be really bright there," he later cues a technician.
It was just 7-8 months ago that the 27-year-old singer lost "American Idol" to a calm, serious singer-songwriter Kris Allen on this very stage at the Nokia Theatre, but now it's Lambert that's always in the headlines!
With his glitzy rock & stage presence Lambert has already eclipsed the talent contest's actual winner and could outshine all the other 'graduates' before him.
