Adam Lambert, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss Party Together (PHOTOS)

The Glee kids have had a really tough past two weeks, with the passing of their friend and co-star Cory Monteith. It’s nice to see them out and about having fun. AND TOGETHER TOO! Here’s Chris Colfer posing with Adam Lambert on his right, and Semi Precious Weapons band member Justin Tratner to his left.  I love Chris’s big toothy smile! And Adam  is looking FAB as always.

The party was thrown by fellow Glee star, Darren Criss and the indie band, Capital Cities at the Hideout in Los Angeles.  Darren performed his music, especially for those who couldn’t make it to his nationwide tour. Word is, Chord Overstreet was there too!  Adam has been spotted out and about with Darren and his girlfriend, Mia Swier. But the connection continues to grow. Adam will be guest starring on Glee this season, according to a tweet from co-creator, Ryan Murphy.

And Darren Criss was a busy guy last night! Before the Capital Cities shindig, he attended Nigel Lythgoe’s Celebration of Dance gala, to raise funds for his Dizzy Feet Foundation.  There were a slew of SYTYCD alums there to perform.

Glee star, Jane Lynch tweeted this photo of the gang that includes Lance Bass, Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect -SYTYCD guest judge this week), Darren Criss and Jenna Ushkowitz.

So You Think You Can Dance guest judge and Glee Director, Adam Shankman tweeted this photo of himself with Darren Criss and fellow SYTYCD guest host, Wayne Brady:

  • LAMBERTLUST

    suck a beautiful pic

  • Mel432

    I’m just starting to watch Glee, and I was surprised when Darren appeared in the second season, he immediately had a big role with more solos than even Cory. He is a really good performer, so maybe that’s the reason. I wonder what his connection was with Adam Lambert, when photos surfaced of them together.

  • tomr

    Love Darren. The other two are way too flamboyant for me,

  • ANNIEBA

    The expressions on everyone’s faces in that Gala pic are hilarious. I know it was staged but still funny. Adam and Chris look so cute. It really seems like Darren and Chris are looking forward to working with Adam.

  • stillcookin

    Darren made a big splash when he first got on Glee. His role was heavily anticipated (being Kurt’s intended boyfriend), and his first song, Teenage Dream, was a huge hit (Glee’s fastest selling single at the time), plus the media and a large portion of the fans went crazy about him. I think that’s why he was instantly treated as one of the leads.
    BTW, over time a section of the hardcore Glee fandom started resenting him for “stealing all the solos”, but if you like him, expect to continue seeing plenty of him.

  • Mel432

    What other two?

  • Not fit to print

    I LOVE Adam Shankman. And Wayne Brady is way talented.

  • jms

    I lol’d at Darren’s expression and thought “ew” when I saw Adam’s facial hair.

  • Matty Minkus

    Damn, Adam and Justin look hot!!!!!! This is confusing to me, because ive never had that opinion of Justin lol. Chris looks adorable :)

  • H.A.

    Chris Cofler is sooo cute. From tweets last night it looks like the GLEE kids were having fun. Adam’s dancer and SYTYCD runner up Sasha Mallory was also at Nigel’s party. Another fun fact Adam and Anna Kendrick were teenage friends growing up. There’s a small scene in Pitch Perfect were they show Adam’s FYE. Maybe he can make a cameo in part 2. Ha. I also love facial hair Adam but he’s going to have to shave for GLEE. We don’t want to scare the kiddies.

  • Not fit to print

    I stopped watching at the end of season two. Looking forward to catching up before the new season starts.

  • twinkies-are-back

    Adam looks so happy….I am really enjoying the direction that flamboyant little rascal is going…

  • Mel432

    Adam looks ten years younger w/o the facial hair. He also looks a lot like DiCaprio.

  • Kariann Hart

    I am really looking forward to Adam’s appearances on Glee. I hope they give him an expanded role besides singing.

  • Ronnie D

    Adam is going to steal the show on Glee. I don’t think he will even have to try to be honest lol. The only other really good singer is Leah. As far as Adam out partying, I hope he isn’t hanging out with Molly and her friends.

  • Axxxel

    Yeah, hopefully a role like Kate Hudson’s character last season.

  • Axxxel

    Chris with a big smile. I would also smile like that if Adam Lambert was standing next to me.. Chris has a background of community theater and Adam used to work in Musical theater for almost 10 years so I think there is a lot to talk about between those 2… Hope Adam can be a bit like “Chris’ big brother” on the Glee set.. just like Adam was towards Allison Iraheta on Idol Season 8…

  • lovetheusa1776
  • Mel432

    Frankly, I am really surprised at Glee fans’ reaction to Adam going on Glee. They are really, really excited. Much much more support for Adam than American Idol fans reaction to Adam being a judge on AI. Where are AI fans loyalty?

  • taptap

    Glee fans are from the 18-35 demo. AI fans are from the 35-49+ demo.

  • Axxxel

    Yeah, I love that big Adam/Chris hug on the TVshow VH1 Big Morning Buzz .

  • Axxxel

    Wasn’t Di Caprio Adam’s very first celebrity crush ?

  • Montavilla

    Where are AI fans loyalty?

    Divided between several dozen different special snowflakes. Once the possibility of an alumni judge is on the table, some fans are going to want their favorite to get that spot.

    Or, even if a fan isn’t pushing a specific favorite, there seems to be a strong principle in the AI community that opportunities should be given out according to season placement. So, any post-show opportunity awarded to a runner-up should rightly be offered first to the winners.

    Or, barring those two things, there are some fans who just don’t care for Adam or consider his achievements inadequate for a position that requires stern judgment towards aspiring superstars.

    Mind you, I don’t agree with those perspectives, but I understand them — and I find them very valid reasons not to support Adam (or any other alumni).

  • Axxxel

    Remember Darren who had to come out as straight ? Sometimes Darren is more flamboyant in interviews than Chris Colfer and Adam Lambert.

    Love Darren when he was doing this wonderful accoustic mash up of Maroon 5 songs…wearing green and orange nailpolish.. (he just came back from the Coachella music festival).
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y72jnspw-74

  • Axxxel

    The strangest thing is that Darren used to audition to Glee for the role of “Finn” that eventually went to Cory.. Wait..so did Adam…

  • Axxxel

    I love Adam but I am afraid that as an American Idol judge, he will end up as a mouthpiece of the producers. Just remember Keith Urban… I prefer to see Adam as a mentor on Idol.

  • Axxxel

    Maybe Adam was already booked for Glee at the time Adam and Darren appeared together.

  • Axxxel

    Just don’t forget your tissue box for Episode 4 of Season 4. I know, season 4 has already finished a few months ago but I think it took me months to get over that episode.

  • Mel432

    Don’t Glee fans have their special snowflakes too? A performance scene with Adam is a scene taken away from… He may actually be better than some. But Glee fans don’t seem concerned about that at all.

    Since AI has competition now, I would think having a former idol contestant as a judge would give credence to AI. As in, See what we do for our contestants? We have so much faith in our contestants that we hire him/her as a judge.

  • Mateja Praznik

    To be honest, I just think everyone has to accept that Idol and all these shows are manipulated and the purpose of judges/coaches/mentors is to influence the public in some way, either with judges’ personal opinions or producers’ agenda. That’s why these shows have judges.

    All I want are entertaining personalities that offer more than: “That was beautiful.”. It’s entertainment program, so the critiques don’t have to be too deep.

    I didn’t like Keith on the show. I wasn’t bothered by his critiques, because he is entitled to his opinions. But he was boring.

  • taptap

    I’m sure many Glee fans have their favorites, but Glee isn’t a reality show talent contest (the Glee Project was). Glee is an ensemble show, and the success of those is predicated on the entertainment value of the group and sub-group dynamics. Think Friends, or going back further, Frasier and Golden Girls. The longer a show lasts, the more likely you need to refresh the ensemble group for more dramatic opportunities.

    I’m guessing they think Adam will be an exciting addition to the ensemble, bringing good opportunities for drama, while providing eye-candy and vocal skill.

  • Incipit

    I don’t want any Alumni to be judges, whether I liked them on the show or not, for exactly that reason, Axxxel.

    I prefer to see any of them as a mentor, where they could actually be useful to the contestants.

    JMO.

  • taptap

    Judges get paid more and get better career exposure. If he’s asked to be on the show and accepts, I hope it’s as a judge and not as a mentor. If the offer was for mentor, I think he’d be better off spending that time with Queen.

  • Mel432

    Been there, done that. I highly doubt Adam will mentor again.

  • Axxxel

    Oh yeah, I still remember taking some popcorn and drinks and read lots of heated discussion between the different shippers of the real Glee ships and even the perceived ones (Achele – Agron/Michele- anyone ?)

    Still, I think as long as Adam’s character is not romantically involved with one of the younger Glee characters… then there will be not really too much fanwarring.. e.g. as a Kurt fan, i was not miffed that Matt Bomer’s character spent a lot of time together with Darren Criss’ character during 1 episode because they were playing as brothers.

  • Lindsayjean139

    I wouldn’t say much more support than American Idol Fans. You are judging reaction based on this extremely small minority of viewers who post on idol centric blogs. On these type of blogs there’s always silly fighting amongst fan bases. It’s silly but fortunately a tiny little bubble that in no way represents the viewing audience. In general Adam has always been considered a fan favorite. That’s why he’s always asked to be on the show and they show his picture constantly

  • KdQ

    Loyalty is with Adam. AI has dangled his name in past to just pass over. Don’t trust AI. Fans on both sides Adam/Glee are excited for good reason with this union!

  • Not fit to print

    I LOVE Col-bert! Hee hee!

  • http://www.mjsbigblog.com/ mjsbigblog

    Just wait til he’s actually on the show. If he upstages any of the actors, appears to take away screen time or seemingly pulls focus in any way, the fan wars will begin.

    What makes you think Idol fans are any crazier, or irrational than any other? And Adam’s fans are just as capable to behave badly if they feel their snowflake is being threatened.

  • http://www.mjsbigblog.com/ mjsbigblog

    Glee fans behave in the same way. Wait for it.

  • http://www.mjsbigblog.com/ mjsbigblog

    But Glee fans don’t seem concerned about that at all.

    Adam hasn’t even appeared yet. I’d reserve that conclusion until after he joins the cast.

    And don’t forget, the jealousy and haterade goes both ways. It always does. So.

  • Susan Reiter

    Nice to see Adam being included in social gatherings and getting in some networking time! I can’t wait to see what they do with him on the show! No matter what – it should be interesting! : )

  • Mel432

    I have a feeling Adam won’t get as much screen time as some bigger celebs. Matt Bomer got a lot of screen time, but for just one episode. I thought he was hilarious. What about Darren? He started in the second season, and BOOM. He got more solos second to Lea. Were fans of others upset? I just started watching, so I didn’t follow what happened with fans.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Never followed Glee. Do they have fan wars?

  • http://www.mjsbigblog.com/ mjsbigblog

    Yes.

  • http://www.mjsbigblog.com/ mjsbigblog

    He started in the second season, and BOOM. He got more solos second to Lea. Were fans of others upset?

    One of the most polarizing actors on the show exactly for that reason. There are fans of the original stars who absolutely despise Darren and would probably throw a party if he was off the show.

    The go-to insults are that he’s a terrible actor and singer, bald, short and pudgy. lol.

  • Axxxel

    Hehehe…. You have no idea…. Once there was a fanwar on another entertainmentblog (which involved 2 ships , and it was related to the character played by Chris Colfer) and it got over 900 postings..and the “fun” part was that it was eventually addressed in the TV serie. Actually one of the criticism on the series is that the Glee writers seem to cater too much to the fandoms..

  • Montavilla

    I don’t think it’s possible to predict what Adam is going to do until Ryan Murphy starts dropping some hints. Darren Criss was supposedly going to last through Season Two. But, since the viewers fell in love with the “Klaine” ship, he turned into a regular cast member.

    At the same time, Chord Overstreet was a regular cast member, who turned into a guest star, and then back into a regular.

    Gwyneth Paltrow and Kristen Chenowith were probably meant to have one-episode stories. But, Murphy liked them both well enough to bring them back for encores. Charice was supposedly going to be a recurring character — but ended up barely doing anything.

    The first Glee Project winners won 7-episode arcs. The runners-up won 2-episode arcs. Damien McGinty did his arc and disappeared. Samuel Larsen lasted into the fourth season — but it looks like he’s gone now. But, runner-up Alex Newell, is now part of the regular cast.

    It’s going to depend on what “joining the cast” means. Then, what Murphy has in mind for the character Adam plays. Then, how well the audience responds to the character.

  • lovetheusa1776

    lol – and here I thought it was all sweetness and light in Glee World.

  • Axxxel

    Actually Glee Boss Ryan Murphy’s original idea of the Glee TV serie, was to have an “all boys Glee club” as the central of attention, so when he saw the success of the “Warblers” , the all- boys- GUEST- glee club on the TV series… he may have played a bit with them and milk them for some commercial success…

  • lovetheusa1776
  • Axxxel

    There is also a lot of drama in Glee… It is a dramedy… Like one episode in last season was about a shooting at the highschool.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Only Lambert could get me to watch this stuff. So funny – a friend told me she heard he was going to be on Glee and said – isn’t that a step down for him?

    Well, he can certainly use the gig to get his name (and hopefully music) out there, but the thought did enter my mind.

    But he’s obviously enthusiastic about the thing, so as a faithful fan, I’ll be there.

  • Mel432

    Awww, poor Darren. If he sold that many itunes, he must be popular with others, tho. Well, if the fans are being honest, they can’t accuse Adam of four of those insults. LOL. I don’t think Adam will be a regular like Darren and others. At most, he’ll be on a few episodes and likely to have a minor role. Also, he probably won’t be on until next year.

  • Mel432

    Who is that?

  • Matty Minkus

    Yes, I always thought it was funny when one fan base disparages another fan base and then claim they’re “laid back and mellow”. The convos on twitter about it are hilarious.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Tweet by Glee’s Director of Photography: @JOAQUINSEDILLO: @adamlambert Wonderful meeting you last night! See you again soon! https://twitter.com/JOAQUINSEDILLO/status/361612189775314944

  • Pat H

    So true! Can’t judge by on line fan sites where fan wars rage on for years.
    The actual press Adam got for both Glee and a possible shot at Idol judge has been overwhelmingly favorable.

  • Pat H

    Nice to see the Glee cast out and about and moving on past the tragedy of Cory’s death. Life goes on!

  • Incipit

    “Only Lambert could get me to watch this stuff.”

    Aww. lovetheusa, I understand that perfectly. Only if my Special Snowflake was on that show, then I would watch it too – same reasons. Heh. But that’s what it would take. Looks like it will be a good thing for him…I’m sure I’ll see it covered here, eventually.

  • No Thanks

    If he’s DP and expects to see Adam soon, then it’s possible Adam might be in the first 3 episodes of the season. They should start taping in a few weeks.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Actually, thinking it over and knowing his fans, probably won’t have to watch – good chance it’ll be on YT like as the credits are running.

    And Lambert may be many things, but a snowflake? Channeling/paraphrasing Mae West – think he drifted, honey.

  • Axxxel

    Thank you for your support. I do not really see it as a step down, more like a step to the side… into a new media. I also think it will get his name out there… Even if he has to play the villain like Neil Patrick Harris, Jonathan Groff , Cheyenne Jackson and Kate Hudson did in Glee..

  • supersonic

    The only Adam on Glee that I care about is Adam Crawford played by the lovely Oliver Kieran Jones.

  • supersonic

    The go-to insults are that he’s a terrible actor and singer, bald, short and pudgy. lol.

    Well, it’s not like that’s wrong. He is a terrible actor and singer. Well, I think most of the folks on Glee aren’t that great at singing and acting so…

    He is short; he does have a belly; and he is bald. I saw pictures from that little tour he did and that bald spot kept getting bigger and bigger. Looked like he was almost rocking the Larry Fine.

  • http://www.mjsbigblog.com/ mjsbigblog

    Actually, thinking it over and knowing his fans, probably won’t have to watch

    It’s what I expect, and why I’ve decided to have a dedicated Adam Lambert Glee post, at least for his first show, to separate the fanning and the wank from the general Glee recap post.

    That way…Glee fans have a space to discuss the show and the other characters. Everybody is happy.

  • supersonic

    Only Lambert could get me to watch this stuff. So funny – a friend told me she heard he was going to be on Glee and said – isn’t that a step down for him?

    It is a step down. I said that when it was announced he was going to be on the show.

  • Axxxel

    LOL… I was heartbroken when “Kadam” did not work out ! True !

  • lovetheusa1776

    Well, obviously he doesn’t think so and that’s all that matters to me.

  • taptap

    I don’t see how adding ‘guest star in one of the highest rated tv shows with the 18-35 demographic’ to his resume could be anything but a good thing. Just as fronting for Queen is a good thing. (well, I’d characterize both as amazing things, but that’s just me).

  • Axxxel

    Then again, if Adam comes up in Glee and there is no rating bump upwards, it will be no good for Adam… So better watch and discuss later in MJ’s blog…

  • taptap

    That seems an odd conclusion. As long as the ratings remain high and he’s viewed by all those watchers, it’s a good thing. If he increases the ratings that’s a good thing for Glee, but being seen by that demo is a good thing for Adam.

  • Axxxel

    To me it is obvious that Glee is sliding and trying to increase the number of viewers by including the Glamberts… who may be of an older demo, but who may have teenage relatives and kids who haven’t seen Glee before… and they may end up watching together…

  • taptap

    Oh I’m sure Glee’s ptb are hoping for a ratings boost with every guest star they showcase, but their satisfaction and Adam’s satisfaction (in terms of industry objectives) are not necessarily the same thing.

  • supersonic

    Right. Because that’s all that matters.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Considering that, I’m sure you’re correct.

  • taptap

    How is guest-starring on one of the highest-rated shows on tv not a good thing for an Idol alum?

  • Axxxel

    True, I am almost sure that Adam will not sing his original material on Glee… even though I was dying for him to sing “Whataya want from me” or “Trespassing”.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Please note the qualification.

  • supersonic

    It could’ve worked out, but the nutty Klaine fans are loud and felt threatened by the growing population of Kadam and somehow got Ryan Murphy to cut that pairing.

    Now, I’m seeing so called die hard Kadam fans jumping on board that Colfer/Lambert ship. Ridiculous. I never will. I liked the character of Adam Crawford and I liked Oliver Kieran Jones. They should’ve gave him a chance!

  • taptap

    It will be interesting to see how he’s cast. Adam has said that he’d love to play himself (as he did on PLL), but I think there’s only a slim chance of that happening, especially if he’s in a recurring role for more than one episode.

  • lovetheusa1776

    I’m sure it’ll all work out fine.

  • Axxxel

    I think he will be a villain with a little bit of heart and with a wonderful voice.

  • Axxxel

    Beauty is in the eye and ear of the beholder. Darren is not my type, his acting is ho-hum but I like his voice and singing… When he sang that “Teenage Dream reprise” on Glee and even that Maroon 5 mashup that I posted 6 hours earlier on this thread.. I like it lots !

  • taptap

    That would be a great role!

  • Axxxel

    I am not really in favor of the Colfer/Lambert ship – sorry “Not fit to print” – and I am a huge fan of both artists…

    Maybe we should be loud as well and ask for Oliver comes back to Glee… tweeting to Ryan Murphy hehehe… asking Please please please bring Oliver back !! His character Adam was so nice and so nice to Kurt (played by Chris Colfer)…*melt* LOL… I would even like it if this Adam-character was not that nice anymore… just to see and hear Oliver acting…

  • Montavilla

    What are “pirates”? Was that a ship involving Kurt?

  • Axxxel

    Yes, between Kurt and his bully Karofsky… who eventually fell for Kurt.

  • Montavilla

    Klaine is probably inevitable, so I doubt there’d be anything more than a friendship between Kurt and the Mystery Adam Character.

    I have a feeling (based on nothing, really) that the MAC will deal more with Rachel than Kurt. But there are all sorts of possibilities, including maybe another high school friend of Will.

  • Montavilla

    Ah. Okay, I’m not exactly getting the connection. I guess it’s not easy to come up with a regular shipping name, since it would end up either “Kurt” or “Karofsky.”

    Although, that’s his last name, so it could be “Durt,” “Kave,” “Karummel,” or “Hummofsky.”

  • taptap

    I’m hoping his role is in the Funny Girl thread. Nicky Arnsteen would be a great character.

  • supersonic

    Klaine is probably inevitable, so I doubt there’d be anything more than a friendship between Kurt and the Mystery Adam Character.

    Yeah, I know. Especially now. I can see them throwing Klaine back together just so there can be some happiness on the show.

  • H.A.

    I’m not sure why you would need to do that though. I’m not familiar with the show but think I would enjoy the whole experience in getting to participate with GLEE fans. It almost feels unfair to isolate Adam fans from participating. I really don’t mind if someone says his acting sucks. lol

  • Axxxel

    Very funny… using the abbreviation of MAC, referring to Adam’s guyliner.

    Eta: sorry sorry, this was addressed to Montavilla.

  • Axxxel

    Only for one show…

  • supersonic

    Because it’s circling the drain.

  • taptap

    That’s an evocative image, but I still don’t get the how and why of it.

  • Montavilla

    Sounds like a good plan. We can fight about how awesome/awful Adam is, and the other Glee fans can fight about how awesome/awful the storylines are. :)

    Of course, I’ll have to read both ports.

  • Axxxel

    Klaine (Kurt/Chris Colfer and Blaine/Darren Criss) may be inevitable but they already compared themselves to what happened in the movie “When Harry met Sally” … in which the 2 leads ended up with each other but Harry was a divorcee while Sally was still single..

    Maybe that is why people are still hoping for Kurt to have another serious relationship (with Adam ? with Mystery-Adam-Character ? with someone else) before he goes back to Blaine.

  • Montavilla

    To me it is obvious that Glee is sliding and trying to increase the number of viewers by including the Glamberts…

    I hope that’s not the plan, because the Glamberts are loyal and vocal, but they don’t necessarily own Nielsen boxes.

  • Axxxel

    But they may have relatives/friends who have ??

  • Montavilla

    If so, we could get Adam singing a Beatles song!

  • supersonic

    And the Lambert post will have about 500 comments.

  • Montavilla

    How about Blaine having a relationship with someone?

    After all, both Harry and Sally had other partners before they got together.

  • Montavilla

    I’m just going to call him MAC until I hear otherwise. :)

  • taptap

    it’s not just Nielsen ratings that Adam brings – he has a large social network, so promotions via twitter, IG, etc. are all valuable to Glee.

  • Montavilla

    The Warblers certainly got a lot of songs that had nothing to do with any storylines. There’s a few episodes in Season Two where the show would suddenly cut to the Dalton Academy for an extraneous Warbler song. LOL.

    Eventually, the show became better at tying their numbers into the actual plot.

  • lkingcorn

    Duh? Went totally over my head…but then you were paraphrasing. Mae West doesnt leap to my mind no matter how it’s phrased.

  • taptap

    He definitely generates a lot of interest. That’s probably why, in a nutshell, Glee wants him.

  • Matty Minkus

    I agree. Why isolate him separately from the glee post? He’s part of the show and his interaction with other characters should be in the Glee post. Doing two posts is just inviting wank IMO. Also, “glee fans” may also include Adam fans.

  • Matty Minkus

    I doubt that Klaine fans could make Ryan Murphy do anything, much less cut an actor or a pairing.

  • Matty Minkus

    Or, even if a fan isn’t pushing a specific favorite, there seems to be a strong principle in the AI community that opportunities should be given out according to season placement. So, any post-show opportunity awarded to a runner-up should rightly be offered first to the winners.

    This is the most ridiculous one. Someone’s career should be based on an outcome of a singing competition years ago? Please. The general public and the majority of Idol watchers don’t care, just diehards on idol boards.

  • lovetheusa1776

    http://quoteinvestigator.com/2013/06/29/snow-drift/

    Try this. West coined (more or less) many witticisms and double entendres – fun to read them.

  • kikileo

    The producers that give the scripts are gone now…

  • Axxxel

    Besides Blaine’s one-night-stand with “Mr Lighthouse” (whose Facebook avatar is a lighthouse)… hhmm..

    Ok, worse case scenario… Blaine gets a crush on the “Mystery Adam Character” (MAC) played by Adam Lambert;Kurt (played by Chris Colfer) gets hurt and gets back to Adam Crawford. Glee writers love to see the suffering face of Chris Colfer….

    In the end, everybody breaks up and Klaine comes back and lives forever together. And MAC will sing a song that will break everyone’s heart and will shoot to the top of the Billboard list… Oh well… just dreaming.

  • Axxxel

    I am not getting the connection either. I am more familiar with Kurtofsky.

  • Kariann Hart

    I hadn’t thought about that! This would mean tht Rachel actually gets the part. Will she (Rachel) be emotionally be ready to take on this challenge?

  • sdmama

    I am kind of looking forward to duet of Lea and Adam. Please let that happen.

  • JoleneJ

    I find it in very poor taste to resort to attacks on someone’s physical appearance, but honestly, these “insults” are just too laughable to get upset over.

  • JoleneJ

    The fans aren’t honest though… that’s the whole point of these insults. Darren is short, but he’d hardly have such a huge following of teenagers if he was “fat, bald and ugly”. LOL

    But I don’t think Adam has much to worry about. If he’s only going to come on for a few episodes, I doubt it’d be enough to turn many Glee fans against him. The main haters for Darren are Kurt fans who think Darren has taken over his role as Glee’s main Gay character, so that’s a whole different set of circumstances compare to what Adam’s walking into.

  • Not fit to print

    Actually, neither am I. I just thought the “Col-bert” acronym was funny. Steve Colbert might have a little fun with that. I have already written a 10 episode fan-fic that ships MAC with Lea, then Kurt, then Blaine. It ends with Klaine firmly in place.

    Klaine and Rachel/Finn are the glue that holds the show together. With Finn gone, Klaine is even more important. Looking forward to all the twists and turns before they finally settle down.

    I personally favour the Nick Arnstein storyline. Rachel can’t catapult into a new relationship too quickly and she needs a soulmate more than ever.

  • Not fit to print

    If you are a fan of someone that IS all that matters.

  • Not fit to print

    It exposes Adam to a key demographic and gives him a big opening to do what he does best: sing!!!

  • Not fit to print

    Depends what you wish for him. I am not mitigating the pleasure of seeing Adam on this or any show by assigning him impossibly high hoops to jump through. Fandom is supposed to be a pleasure, not a state of high anxiety.

  • Not fit to print

    Me, too!

    Given Chris’s seniority on the show, it might actually be the other way around.

    I really have no idea. I haven’t watched Glee since the first few eps of season 1, but I heard about the Funny Girl thread and thought it was a good fit for Adam – playing himself (or someone else) in a B’way musical. Funny thing is I stopped watching Glee because I found Rachel so very annoying!

    Does tweeting to Ryan Murphy really do anything? I see people doing this all the time. Tweeting ideas. What’s that going to do? Like he’s really going to listen.

  • supersonic

    The fans aren’t honest though… that’s the whole point of these insults. Darren is short, but he’d hardly have such a huge following of teenagers if he was “fat, bald and ugly

    Like teenagers have any taste.

  • supersonic

    I’m a fan of a lot of people, but I wouldn’t support them on something that I think is a bad idea or sit through something horrible just to see them.

    I love me some Keith Urban, but I just couldn’t with Idol. I could not do it. I only came back for the finale because he was performing.

    Do you see what happened with this post? It’s 3/4’s about Glee–Darren Criss, Jenna Ushkowitz, the Dizzyfeet Foundation Gala as well the party with Adam Darren and Chris, but it’s been completely taken over by conversations about Adam.

    Especially if Adam begins his arc in the premiere, there will be separate posts for the first 3 shows, because Glee fans are going to want to discuss the passing of Cory Monteith and how the producers handle that.

    If Adam fans want to talk about Adam in relationship to the episode and the other cast members, go for it. I’m not banning you from the main post. The separate post will be for the “I’m only here for Adam” folks.

    I think Ryan Murphy does listen to some extent. It’s not like he’s going to change his mind if he’s got a strong idea, but, from watching him on Glee Project, he seems eager to find inspiration and implement ideas thrown at him.

    For example, some fans imagined a lesbian relationship between these two minor cheerleader characters, Brittany and Santana. Murphy indulged that fan ship, dropping more and more hints, and then finally making it into a real storyline in Season Three.

    I’m pretty sure it was fan response (plus Darren Criss’s strong performance) that brought Klaine into being. Originally, Blaine was described as a “mentor” to Kurt, and “Kurt’s boyfriend” was hinted to be someone else. Possibly football player Dave Karofsky, possibly fellow Glee-er Sam. Possibly a character who was written out before being cast.

    Incidentally, I remember seeing last year somewhere (probably on this blog) a tweet to Murphy asking why they didn’t get Adam Lambert to guest star on the show. Murphy replied in a non-committal way, saying something like, “Adam’s a very talented guy.” At the time, I thought that was a polite brush-off.

  • Montavilla

    I feel like we never talk about Jenna Uskowitz enough. The season one episode I watched last night reminded me that Tina used to be a major character in the show.

  • taptap

    I always assume if there’s no discussion about a character or artist it’s due to lack of interest (or the fans of that character or artist just don’t go here).

  • Montavilla

    I’ve liked everything he’s done. I even watched Eastwick (although, not just for Criss) for all six or whatever episodes it lasted.

    What I’ve noticed is that Glee has helped his singing a lot. He mentioned (before getting cast on the show) that he couldn’t hold a note long enough to properly sing some of the songs he wrote. But now he can, so he’s obviously been getting a good vocal work-out in the past few years.

    How is guest-starring on one of the highest-rated shows on tv not a good thing for an Idol alum?

    Fans of Idols are always hoping their snowflake breaks out of the Idol bubble, and Glee is definitely outside the Idol bubble.

    Like what it did for Jessica Sanchez?

  • taptap

    Maybe Adam will have a positive experience (like GP) or maybe Adam will have a negative or neutral experience (like JS). No way to tell until it’s happened, though. I do know one thing from the get-go; Adam is a lot more well-known and popular than Jessica. I think she’s going to do fine, though, because she has a huge Filipino audience that will support her even if everything else falls through.

  • Eilonwy_has_an_emu

    Like what it did for Jessica Sanchez?

    Glee got Sanchez seen outside the Idol bubble. People outside the Idol bubble just didn’t give a significant quantity of shits to rescue her album sales.

    Assuming that Lambert will get the same response requires assuming either (a) the Glee audience is so narrowly focused on buying covers from the main cast that no shits are given to outsiders [possible, but requires a larger sample of guests than Sanchez] or (b) Lambert himself is shit-ungiveable on a level with Sanchez [which their own relative careers so far suggest ain’t so].

  • taptap

    lolol! I had just typed up a ‘logical fallacy’ argument reply, then erased it for the simpler ¯_(?)_/¯ below.

    Either way, we said the same thing high!five

  • tomr

    Didn’t mean those two. Meant Kurt and Adam.

  • Montavilla

    I think the Gleeks tend to buy the songs that are well-covered and have good bones. “Teenage Dream” is a good, catchy song that was covered in an exciting arrangement that sounded completely different from previous covers, and it was presented in a dramatic moment of importance to a beloved character.

    It was a perfect storm.

    “Don’t Stop Believing” was much the same, except that it’s a great song, and the arrangement wasn’t quite as good. But it was a near-perfect storm. :)

  • Dianne

    People suggesting a romance between Adam & Kurt? Nooooooo! Sounds pervy to me as I still associate Kurt with high school, and why does Adam have to be gay? He could be gay or straight, this is acting. (I hope he gets some lessons so he doesn’t appear too campy.) Also, is he just a guest like Kate Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow & others or a regular cast member? Am hoping he turns up in NYC and is a good friend of Lea’s, a duet would be off the chain! Would be really cool to if they could work a Phantom of the Opera dream sequence or something in, would love to see Adam as the phantom, but don’t know enough about music to know if that is vocally a match, anyone? Okay let the thumbs down tally begin!

  • Axxxel

    Kurt once acted as the Phantom..while Tina was Christine.

  • Axxxel

    LOLwith your Steve Colbert and fanfiction. Sometimes I wonder whether they will mirror the real life relationship between Lea Michele and Best Friend Jonathan Groff in the TV serie…

  • H.A.

    Gotcha. Thanks for explaining that. You’re right about the “I’m only here for Adam” folks. I’m sure it will work out fine. Thanks again.
