This blue eyed performer cites Little Richard as his first musical influence.
This performer has something important in common with Elvis Presley.
Reasons why it could happen:
- He needs the money
- He's bored
- He's releasing a new album (fingers crossed)
- Lexie (his daughter) wants him to
Adam is being compared to Freddie Mercury for his fantastic vocals and to Mr. Bowie for his theatrics, extravagance, and "gayness." Bowie is Adam Lambert's idol too. Here is a photo of Adam at a New Year's performance wearing a great Bowie tee shirt. How can you fault him with taste like that?
I seriously doubt this duet will come to pass but I have my fingers crossed. I would love to see Bowie on stage again. This will get him in the public's eye in a big way because this show will be viewed by millions. The duet would have to be Under Pressure and what a performance it would be! How I wish I were a fly on Bowie's apartment wall right now. Is he going around singing Under Pressure?
Here is a youtube video of Adam's audition for American Idol.
I love his version of Tears for Fear's Mad World. He sang Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love and Aerosmith's Cryin' like a rock star!
Here's a video of Adam singing Mad World
To be fair, I'll include a Kris Allen video of Heartless by Kanye West
Who do you think should win?
Not unexpectedly, Adam didn't win. I think he was the better singer of the two, definitely more memorable, but I don't think America is ready for a singer like him. Americans prefer safe, cute, good 'ol country boy singers, like Kris. And Bowie didn't show. That's a shame but again, not unexpected.
