    Adam and Melissa duet? Intriguing. Could be really cool.
    At least he didn’t sing WWFM. J/K, he sounds great as always and looks fantastic.

    All Adam has to say is “how are you guys doing” and I’m enchanted.

    I love how all the Legends keep coming. Adam can learn a lot from them.

    I don’t think we’ll see a ME duet on Adam’s album but she has one coming out. You never know.

    Except for the new hair do. Those things are incredibly ugly. sometimes fashion is a mistake.

    He looked gorgeous and his voice just keeps amazing people.

    Another beautiful version of Mad World. Adam looked so gorgeous in that suit. He really knows how to dress. I don’t think he’s ever looked better. Really loving the new look.

  • bridgette12

    Adam has been looking very chic. I love him in a suit and tie.

    Or, you know, personal tastes differ.


    I thought I was soooo done with WWFM, and then he sang that gorgeous, piano drenched version at The Trevor Project event and I find myself listening to that at least once a day. That performance was simply beautiful and showcased his voice and skill to perfection, IMO. This Mad World is right up there too.

    Glad to hear M.E. is working on new music and a duet with Adam would be awesome!

  • HKfan

    I love his hair at this event.

  • Susan Reiter

    Mad World just never gets old. So gorgeous.
