Adam Lambert is in Finland, on his whirlwind European promo tour. Today, he signed autographs at the Stockmannin nimmarikeikalla (mall) in Helsinki. As you can see, there was a very enthusiastic crowd there to greet him.

Later tonight, Adam will be performing “Whataya Want From Me” on the Finnish version of the X Factor.  Check out short clips from his rehearsal, after the jump.

More photos HERE.

2nd Update:  Adam sings “Whataya Want From Me” on X Factor.   Short interview included!

    Finnish news clip on youtube now: http://bit.ly/dsc61o

  • SparklesATL

    Good grief! What kind of advance publicity did he have to draw a crowd like this? I would think the people in Finland wouldn’t know him from Adam.

    heh

  • cwm

    Thanks for the new thread, MJ!

    WOOT to the huge excited crowds for Adam in Finland!

    Adam sounds great as usual in the rehearsal videos, especially when he sings acapella briefly in the second clip.

    When you click on MJ’s link above to see the photos, be sure to scroll down to the big gray arrow and click on that to see additional pictures.

    Here’s a sweet tweet from Adam when it was over:

    @adamlambert
    Thanks to all the fans who came to Stockman in Helsinki today! Thanks for all your positive energy and all your gorgeous Finnish eyes! about 1 hour ago via Echofon

  • weareallinnocent

    How exciting for him!

    Hasn’t he been topping charts in Finland for awhile? I could have that wrong, and I’m not saying that’s a huge thing. I seem to recall seeing that somewhere though.

    Anywho, it’s not for me to ask why, just to celebrate along with him!! So, YAY Adam, you GO!! :-)

  • bridgette12

    I loved the look on his face when he was coming out, he was either a little shocked or overwhelmed by how many people that was there. I hope he realizes just how many people love him and his music.

  • Oksana2000

    Good grief! What kind of advance publicity did he have to draw a crowd like this? I would think the people in Finland wouldn’t know him from Adam.

    I believe, that WWFM reached #5 on I-tunes in Finland. Or higher?
    So maybe some people must know him…:-)

  • smeggingnuts

    Holy crap look at that crowd, go BB with your bad self. I wish I knew what those girls were saying in that news interview. And wow did he sound frikken amazing acapella

  • koshka

    People my disagree about liking Adam’s music, but they all should really agree that the dude has been working HARD this past year. He’s not sitting back expecting it to happen for him.

  • SparklesATL

    I wonder if Adam will be singing this in Finland?

    “Finland, Finland, Finland

  • BeckyMD

    wow!!

  • lorismile

    Oh I love the reception he got there! The crowds look awesome.

    His voice singing acapella on those short notes we heard were incredible!!!!

    I’m so excited and happy for him. Plus he debuted at #39 on UK single chart this week! WOOHOO

  • baebae

    Yay, new thread! Thanks, mj. He sounds great!

  • smeggingnuts

    Man I wish I could see details on my phone I want to see the look on his face. And yes Adam has been doing pretty well on itunes ther for quite a while if I remember right

  • lorismile

    Couldn’t agree with you more. :-)

  • adamisthemanfan

    holy shit. This is way cool…so many ppl! I wish he would do something like this here but I think things would get out of control really fast. Sucks. Still crossing my fingers for more tour dates near my area XX

  • saga

    Both FYE and WWFM has been charting in Finland.

  • baebae

    I want to know what they said in the interview. Guess we’ll have to wait until the subtitled version comes out. Great crowd, such enthusiasm! He must be thrilled.

  • lorismile

    WWFM is #3 on Finland’s singles chart and FYE is #19 on the chart.

  • lorismile

    Yah Saga!!! Is this the whole episode in repeat?

  • Tristessa

    I’m not surprised he’s doing so well in Finland. If you look at some of the most popular Finnish bands (Nightwish, HIM, The Rasmus.. and their winning Eurovision contribution Lordi), it’s all very dramatic/theatrical and melodic. And lots of guys in eye makeup and black. Adam fits right in. I’m happy for him, I just hope he gets promoted better in Norway so I can go see him!

  • luval

    Adamisthemanfan….I have always wondered why Adam doesn’t do some kind of a signing in this country. Like you said it could get out of hand, but I think it goes back to promotion (or lack of it) with radio stations. Maybe it’s too late now, but I think it would be interesting to see the public response with autograph signings here. When I mention to fellow workers and acquaintances about Adam’s world promo, they have no idea this is going on with the crowds, screaming girls, etc. in other parts of the world. Sometimes I think I’m in the weird Adam bubble that no one but me knows about!

  • BestAI

    lorismile, are you from the UK? You always have valuable, accurate info. Thank you for that.

  • dcglam

    X Factor is in for a real treat tonight!!
    I had tears rolling down my face watching the signing video. All of this must seem incredibly surreal to Adam. He deserves every bit of the love and attention that is coming his way.
    I am so, so happy for him! :)

  • lorismile

    When I mention to fellow workers and acquaintances about Adam’s world promo, they have no idea this is going on with the crowds, screaming girls, etc. in other parts of the world

    Honestly, most people don’t know about Bieber’s screaming fans in other countries either. I don’t think it’s a bubble. I think it’s more of if it doesn’t happen in the USA, it’s really not covered in the media.

  • mr

    HOLY SMOKES!!! That’s a HUGE crowd!!! Go Baby!!!

    Hey- where’s Bendy?

  • bridgette12

    I understand why he don’t do signings in the US. They would be overwhelmed with a lot of excited people. I remember how the fans would get when he came out for the meet and greets during the tour. I could imagine what would happen during a signing.

  • Studio57

    WWFM was #1 on overall Itunes in Finland, New Zealand, and Germany. Maybe Canada? Not 100% certain on that one:

    http://www.adamofficial.com/us/node/1432119

  • BestAI

    I am so happy for Adam too. Little did he realize when he went on AI, all this would happen — a worldwide promotion, and young girls (yes, Adam, girls), would be reacting to him like this. Yes, he certainly does deserve this, with his incredible talent and working really hard for many, many years.

  • lorismile

    Loved Adam’s outfit on XFactor. Talk about a glittery shirt! LOL

    I think I missed his performance though :-( But saw his cute litte chat! He’s such a charmer!

  • Oksana2000

    Is this X-Factor streaming live, or I’m watching recording? ?
    Adam just spoke to contestants..

  • Tristessa

    It’s live, and they’re voting right now. It’s only been on a half hour, I don’t think he’s performed yet.

  • Oksana2000

    Did I miss Adam’s performance??? NO, NO, NO!!!!!! (Kicking and screaming)

  • Tristessa

    Or an hour and a half maybe, I forgot the time difference. If it’s the same set up as the others, they come back in a bit.

    Link: http://katsomo.fi/?progId=38443

  • alaadam

    Where is the link to the Xfactor?

  • Oksana2000

    Does anybody know what time it started ? (Finnish time)

  • lorismile

    Yes, we missed it Oksana2000. Sigh, but I loved the purple tie!! He’s such a charmer isn’t he?

    Smeggs I tweeted your twitpic to Adam, not that he’ll see it but still.

  • koshka

    Honestly, most people don’t know about Bieber’s screaming fans in other countries either. I don’t think it’s a bubble. I think it’s more of if it doesn’t happen in the USA, it’s really not covered in the media.

    Which is why it is an eye opener to find out which idols had been promo’d overseas. I never put much thought into it until this year.

  • lorismile

    If it’s the same set up as the others, they come back in a bit.

    Oh maybe. The host did say he’d see him a bit later. :-)

  • Oksana2000

    lorismile, it’s only 20:05 in Finland. If the show started at 19:30 he would have sung at the very beginning. Hard to believe..
    And MC is repeating Adam’s name all the time. I wish I speak Finnish..:(

  • madnessinmotion

    That same link is just now starting to stream the X-Factor again. Even though I cant understand the language they showed a clip of the TFM video and said Adam’s name so it is clearly a rerun of the same show.

  • Tristessa

    It’s 21.11 in Finland right now, and their tv-guide says the results show starts 22.35. They’re voting right now, showing the performances from tonight again. I think Adam will be on the results show (it would make more sense than singing with the contestants), they said they would see him again later.

  • smeggingnuts

    Awww I hope someone is going to put it up on YT I can’t use the link on my phone:(

    Lol Lorismile you sent Adam the praying cat???? Lol its not gonna make any sense unless he knows about the other pic

  • baebae

    He’s supposed to be on around 10:30 Finland time which is 3:30 Eastern Time in North America.

  • Oksana2000

    Tristessa, your’e right. Somehow I thought that Poland and Finland are in the same time zone..(

    Okay, thanks Tristessa! That makes sense then when the MC said at the end “We’ll see you later”. Okay so I have some time before he comes on to get some work done! :-)

  • mr

    Thanks for Bendy, Smeggs!!

    The link isn’t really working for me either… so yeah, I’ll see the youtubes (tomorrow most probably)!!

  • Oksana2000

    So I’ll be glued to monitor for another 2 hours. And vid with Adam will be posted on YouTube 5 seconds after he’ll be done with singing. I must be insane..:((((

  • madnessinmotion

    In the interview at the end of the show they asked Adam what advice he had for the contestants and he said they need to make sure they look like they are having fun. Even if they are nervous or worried what they need to show the audience is that they are having fun.

    For me that explains the problem with S9. I think that is the “it factor” that this year’s Idol contestants are missing. No one seems to be having any fun. They just seem very serious and focused.

    HaHa, I am with you. I know I am insane. I am sitting here watching a show that I can’t understand a word of just because I know he will be on it at some point. I will be here when it happens. I won’t miss him. At least I get to hear people talking in a language I can’t understand. Yeah, I am insane. :)

    What an amazing reception! I’m so happy for him.

  • smeggingnuts

    Madnessinmotion
    I think that all show sound stages armade kept really cold. If you remeber pic from his first Leno gig they were all bundled up too. I think its so when the stage is full all the body heat doesn’t. Raise the temp so high peoples makeup starts to melt

  • mr

    Ok- this is just to pass the time till we get the Xfactor youtubes- but this is truly, IMO, one of Adam’s most EPIC performances, a real masterclass- and in the event that maybe some of you haven’t seen it (baebae maybe? have you seen this? If not- it’s a treat I promise!)- get ready for some acrobatic vocals and sweetest humour EVAH!

  • madnessinmotion

    smeg, too bad for you. Sorry that all you will get to sit through is an awesome performance. No doubt that within 5 minutes of the performance ending you will be able to see it. The rest of us are just keeping watch that nothing slips through the cracks even though I am not quite sure what we think we might miss. :)

  • Oksana2000

    madnessinmotion, I’m a with you too. Doesn’t finnish sound complicated? And I thought that my native tongue is unpronounceable for most people…
    The only reason I’m watching it now is …..i want to see it LIVE!!

  • Organic

    Watching the X-factor link, seems recorded. But, is there a Ryan Seacrest in every country? The host on this show seems just as spastic as Ryan.

  • smeggingnuts

    Oh mr that’s my favorite cabaret performance afte Dust in the wind

  • madnessinmotion

    Oksana2000, to me what is most interesting about listing to this is hearing how many of them speak such clear English. Not only are the contestants singing in English but the audience was responding with laughter and cheers during the interview with Adam so they clearly understood the conversation. I took 2 years of Spanish and can’t communicate effectively in the language. These are people living in Finland speaking very good English. I have been put to shame.

  • baebae

    That’s actually one I’ve seen, mr. Loved it. I’m downloading that X-factor bit with Adam talking to the host, but it’s slow going. Hopefully it won’t disconnect before it’s done.

  • http://www.twilightslo.com Mateja

    So, interesting song choices:
    Boyband Enchant sang Fireflies by Owl City,
    Samuli sang Unfaithful by Rihanna,
    Leena sang When Love Takes Over by David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland,
    Elias sang You’re Beautiful by James Blunt.

  • Oksana2000

    Organic, even if it’s recorded, methinks it’s being just shown on finnish TV.

  • madnessinmotion

    Organic, it is recorded. We are waiting on a live stream of the results show.

  • Tristessa

    Watching the X-factor link, seems recorded.

    They’re replaying the performances from earlier, while everyone’s voting. The results show will be live, it starts in about 35 minutes.

    Finns (and Scandinavians and Dutch) all take mandatory English in school from age 8 or so. So they’ve had lots of time to practice. Films are subtitled (not dubbed) and most music, even Finnish music is in English.

  • mr

    Smeggs, baebae- It makes me laugh out every time when he says “A text message is not ok”, LOL! He’s such a girl! :lol:

  • baebae

    Here’s a snippet to keep you going while the rest it downloading. It’s just the tail end of Adam talking to the host.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhT-D9z9sok

  • Oksana2000

    madnessinmotion, I remember, when visiting Denmark, that everybody spoke fluent English. Same goes for other scandinavian countries,Finland included. English is like contemporary Latin…
    Most people in Europe speak two languages and English is the most popular second language.
    Also Scandinavians have the best english accent.

  • Organic

    They’re replaying the performances from earlier, while everyone’s voting. The results show will be live, it starts in about 35 minutes.

    Thanks much for explaining. Appreciate it everyone.

  • smeggingnuts

    Mr I know my fav parts are
    -random stroking of the piano
    -”is there dessert happening, did I get dessert” lol
    -the face he makes when he hits that low note
    -and the text messages are not ok

    Hahaha I think I have watched that one a million times love it

  • lorismile

    Yeah, I am insane.

    Aren’t we all? :-)

    I loved his words to the contestants. I think that’s why I like Adam so much. He just looks like he’s have a blast all the time. Makes me think of my childhood when I would sing in the mirror with a hairbrush pretending to be a rock star. Then, he reverts to himself, after each performance; his eyes clear, and he gets that big smile, like he just had the best time of his life.

  • sr4mjc

    Holy fuck, Finland! Yay!! I’m happy he made it there, the Finnberts have been one of his biggest supporters.

    Just catching up, did I miss the live performance or is it streaming later? It’s 15:10EST right now..

    what’s the link if I didn’t miss it?

  • Organic

    is there dessert happening, did I get dessert” lol

    That was always my favorite random part of that video too. And he ordered something Chocolate !!

  • smeggingnuts

    Thanks baebae

    Oh sooo handsome with his purple tie

    Hahahahaha they do seem to have to have a Ryan on everyone of those shows. Lol’ing at the spastic jumping and yelling. Reminds me of Ryan dancing in his intro for the group dance during disco week for top 7 part 2 last year.

    But everytime the judges critiqued them, they always said “I’m having fun” well maybe that’s true but one important thing to do as a performer is to make sure that the audiences are having fun too. And that’s where they mostly failed. IMO of course

  • mr

    -the face he makes when he hits that low note

    Oh YES!! Like he’s puking out the last low note, haha!

    Oh wait- another iconic action he does in that performance:
    - The way his knee moves up uncontrollably when he’s sitting on the piano and riffing the high notes… dear hell…

  • Oksana2000

    Tristessa, mandatory language in school means nothing. Me and all my friends had mandatory russian in school beginning at age 10. It was so hated that everybody made sure we never learned it…

  • madnessinmotion

    Is anybody watching the results show?

  • lorismile

    My favorite cabaret performance is “Come Home’. It’s so heartfelt. You guys just like HCYDCM because the camera is filmed with a straight shot at the GB. Be honest now girls!.

    Man, I can’t get over how good his voice sounds acapella in the vid. Imagine if he did a song like that on tour?

    Im still just seeing the replay.

  • madnessinmotion

    cwm, all I am getting is a rerun of the performance episode. There is an Adam interview at the end of the hour but no Adam performance in this stream.

  • Oksana2000

    Madness, I don’t see anything except the bird and clock.

  • Studio57

    Oksana- I have that too- and it says 22:35 so I assume that it startes in 5 minutes?

  • cwm

    Here’s youtube of the interview with Adam!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lSQeW8iADg

  • Tristessa

    It was so hated that everybody made sure we never learned it…

    It’s understandable that Poles don’t like speaking Russian, but US/UK culture is popular in the Nordic countries so there isn’t the same stigma attached to speaking it.. most Scandinavians take pride in being so fluent in English.

    5 minutes left.

  • kittensmittens

    To those of you who are having trouble:

    The results show (where Adam will be singing WWFM) has not started yet, but the link is: http://katsomo.fi/?progId=38448

    Click on “testaa” which means it will test the speed of your internet connection before it streams. You should see a clock and owl right now, since the show has not started yet. Once the show starts it will magically appear.

    ETA: looks like show is starting now!

  • Tristessa

    It’s playing for me, try reloading?

    The results show is starting now.

  • Oksana2000

    Tristessa, I agree with you. We had to take another foreign language in school and that was the one we eventually learned..:))

  • smeggingnuts

    Good news there are people as I type this capping the show (I am thinking capping mean captioning) yippie can’t wait

  • Oksana2000

    I guess my bandwidth is not big enough :(

    Me too, I only understand the numbers, and when one of the contestants cursed in his interview lol

    Thanks for posting the interview. Mine disconnected yet again. The live stream is really choppy for me too. Connection’s too slow.

  • zzatrms

    Then, he reverts to himself, after each performance; his eyes clear, and he gets that big smile, like he just had the best time of his life.

    The smile has always been my favorite part of Adam’s appearances/performances.

  • Oksana2000

    Oh, Adam , you made me proud..:)) As always..:))

  • mr

    oh smeggs- the GB’s very sneeky in Upright… you’d think loose pants wouldn’t showcast… you’d be wrong… :-P

  • baebae

    Same here, mr. Keeps getting stuck, but there he is!

  • lorismile

    oh that was really lovely. Missed his Tommy interaction as the feed decided to freeze right at that point but he sounded great!!

  • Oksana2000

    Was it good for you too?…he he..
    This is it? Can I do something useful for a change??

  • baebae

    And there he goes. That was short and sweet. :(

  • alaadam

    Mine froze during Tommy interaction too. Adam was amazing and gorgeous!!!

  • dcglam

    Love those “Marry Me, Adam” signs in the audience! Too funny….. :)

  • adamisthemanfan

    @ luval: LOL yeah were kind in our own little Adam Lambert bubble but its fun! I think these public signings have to do with the release of his album over in Europe…Since he is not touring over there (yet) like he is here I think this is like, an alternative way of promoting himself and his music…Ive honestly just resigned to the fact that I just havent been that fortunate lol since I actually went to the idols tour last summer and this was one of two places where he didnt sign autographs after the concert because he supposedly had a stocker…and so far there arent any tour dates near where I live so yeah…bad luck. Things are just more complicated here…
    So yeah I think it has to do with promotion and a certain trust of the public, since he is not as well known in Europe and Europeans tend to act less ‘rabid’ than Americans at times… after all Europe has garnered and entertained many musical acts throughout the centuries.

  • Oksana2000

    It seems, that live show freezes a lot. Maybe to many people plugged in??

  • Jae

    wow. Adam has IT in spades! What a great audience! And who was that guy playing for him in the white shirt! LOL! I almost didn’t recognize Tommy. I guess Adam told him, “Dude! Lose the black!” LOL!

  • Marie23

    Yay! Refreshed the site and just saw it, nice one Adam. I find it so funny that I’m probably one of the very few Adam fans that don’t really care for WWFM on the album, but am almost always scrambling to see any performance of him singing it. Oh and Adam, if you wanted to show off those legs while holding that mic stand behind you, you shouldn’t have worn such baggy pants, just saying…

  • Tristessa

    I don’t understand why the performers on X-factor speak foreign but sing in English?

    They speak foreign because they’re in Finland, and sing in English because most popular music from Europe and North America is in English. Popular Finnish bands (like Nightwish, HIM and The Rasmus) often write their songs in English too, because they reach a much larger market. Touring in Europe means lots of countries with different languages, it’s easier to sing in one that many people understand.

  • alaadam
  • cwm

    Thanks the video, alaadam! Adam looked and sounded fantastic. Of course. :-)

    The crowd’s reaction to him is awesome. What a thrill for Adam to encounter such love around the world. It must be overwhelming at times. I’m so so happy for him.

  • sagi

    Thanks for the explanation, makes sense, just seemed a little strange. Was wondering if the audience and judges even understand the lyrics or not?

  • Oksana2000

    Marie23,

    don’t really care for WWFM on the album, but am almost always scrambling to see any performance of him singing it.

    Maybe ’cause he sings it differently every single time?..:-)

  • Tristessa

    Was wondering if the audience and judges even understand the lyrics or not?

    Almost everyone should (unless they’re 60+ maybe).. there’s a discussion on it further back in the thread. Finns start mandatory English in school around age 8 and movies/tv are subtitled not dubbed, so most people are fluent. I live in Norway and everyone understands lyrics in English here :)

  • baebae

    Thanks, alaadam! Going to watch now…

    Another great performance…sounded and looked great!

    Well shot video(thumbs up to the live video director)..loved the black & white effect at the beginning and all the colors..Green/Blue/ and his purple tie that matched the purple on the drum kit. A full of win stop for Adam in Finland! :) The crowds and audience are crazy.

    AWESOME!!! He is constantly full of surprises…makes you wonder what the video will be! :)

    I wonder if this is one of the photos to come out of the photo shoot he did with Lee Cherry not to long back?

  • emmuzka

    I was there. Sony messed up the signing and hadn’t prepared for the huge amount of people that shoved up (my gestimation, 1 500-2 000 people with virtually no advertising!) There was this one security guard near Adam that was even aggressive, he showed little 12 year olds forward by grabbing their shoulders. Generally the fan base was pretty young, maybe 80% was under 20.

    I got my autograph, and got to give my present, and even sneaked a igh five from him, so three hours in the line well spent :)

    and by the way, the mall’s name is Stockmann. “Stockmannin nimmarikeikka” translates to “autograph gig in Stockmann”.

    In X-Factor, there were as many Adam signs as there were signs for the actual contestants. When ever they mentioned Adam’s name, the audience clapped and screamed, and that became a running joke during commercial breaks. Adam was very graceful during the whole thing, even when his smile went to the side of pageantry during the small interview thing. He must think that Finns are crazy ;)

    WWFM was great as always. No special effects, just great singing. It truly felt like he was looking everyone in the eyes! The audience sat on their seats only because we were forbidden to stand.

  • cwm

  • Tristessa

    Glad to be of assistance! It’s nice to be able to contribute a little for once, usually Adam is so far away. If anyone runs into him at a show or signing, tell him it’s time he goes to find his Norwegian roots and send him my way :)

  • cwm

    emmuzka… How awesome that you were THERE at both the signing and the performance! Thank you for the recap! Congratulations on your autograph and high five (woot!) and for being able to enjoy his live performance in the X Factor audience.

    So did you say anything to him when you got his autograph, and did he say anything to you? What did he seem like close up?

    Count me shallow, but I think that Adam is currently the best looking american singer/performer. The one before him was Bon Jovi IMO.
    Jonas Bros don’t count, sorry..and don’t start with Fetus..

    I can wait to see the rest :)

  • Miss Chaos

    I love that cover of IIHY, it is sooo sexy. He is really sticking with the Vegas Elvis hair. Maybe he thinks it makes him look more grownup, mature, ? IDK? Anyhow I wonder if this is the way the video is gonna go, Adam dressed up dancing, how I love his dancing, I think his dancing is just as good as his singing, and that’s hard to beat. He is such a star, and I am sooo happy for him, to be all over the world performing.

  • baebae

    Thanks, mama2dasha, and for the pic too. I’m assuming those boots have been counted already?

  • girlygirl

    Ooh I like that cover art!

    Enjoyed the X-Factor performance a lot. What I like about so many of the ex-Idols is their ability to change up their songs to keep them fresh. I haven’t seen enough of either of the Davids performances to know whether they do this [I assume they do], but Kelly, Adam and Kris in particular are all very good at changing up songs — I would think that really helps them from getting bored singing the same song hundreds of times.

  • Truthiness

    Was it Hammer time in Finland? What was with those pants?

    But good performance and I love that the Fins love Adam. Now if only my Swedes could show as good a taste as their neighbors…

  • adamisthemanfan

  • Judee

    His friend did the cover shoot? Ok Adam, keep your friends CLOSE!!!

  • luval

    Don’t you wish they were still selling CD singles? How are we going to enjoy the IIHY cover?

    Yup, the Elvis hair seems to be the thing with him now. Can’t wait til June 4th, first show on tour to see what he’ll be wearing.

    And I like the baggy pants for a change too. Yes, could be MC Hammer, but the first thing I thought of was 1920′s old Hollywood. Especially with the spats and slicked back hair. Love it!!

    But if you don’t, wait 5 minutes and he’ll change the look . LOL

  • Oksana2000

    Truthiness, I think that he was wearing those baggy pants when he met Boy George. I am glad that he changes his looks, always something new ..BTW this pants look good on him..IMO.:-)

  • emmuzka

    So did you say anything to him when you got his autograph, and did he say anything to you? What did he seem like close up?

    They were in a super hurry, so he didn’t get to ask anyone’s name or anything. I had my gift (a pendant in a envelope) that Lane took right away. He had already signed a standard card for me, but then Lane was like, “oh, you have a Cd leaflet” (those were the priority to get a signature), so he signed that, too, and then I snatched them both and asked Adam, “Can I have Both?”

    Also Adam kept his palm open facing me, so I slammed my hand in his and got a small high five! heh. And then it was time to go before the agressive security guard (the bald one in the first pic) got nervous.

    Close up, Adam seems really intense, and as he is pretty thin nowadays, his head and hands look big ;) I would absolutely die if I would saw Adam wearing my gift pendant. If only…

  • Mieps

    Quick translation for the Dutch video – thanks mama2

    Background info: Paul de Leeuw (host) used to be a great comic and used to do full shows in theatres (stand-up). Jim Bakkum got second place in Holland Idol (or whatever it is called) when he was 15! (6 years ago). Paul starts with joking that this is the reason Jim was chosen to introduce Adam. Jim is a huge fan and encourages everyone to check him out on youtube, because there are so many great video’s of Adam.

    If there’s anything specific you’d like to know, just shoot. BTW. Paul de Leeuw is gay as well.

  • Marie23

    Yeah Jim is pretty cute. I found myself looking at him almost as much as I was staring at Adam. Yeah probably will make a cute couple, but Adam likes them smaller. :)

  • cwm

    Wow, today is just full of Adam treats, isn’t it?

    That Dutch performance of WWFM was terrific. Loved the banter at the beginning. Yeah, that Jim was a cutie alright. “He’s not (gay)? Sh*t.” LOL Dang, I was pullin’ for ya Adam!

    Only Adam can go from black and white to color.

  • luval

    Marie23: you are correct…pretty (check). androgynous (no check)…elf (no check). One out of 3 doesn’t cut it.

    isn’t that his Rob Cavallo, If I Can’t Have You jacket, just bedazzled

    Rob cavallo is Adam’s producer on a few of his songs, I think you mean Roberto Cavalli and yes I think that is it- he wore it for something else recently but they are all starting to run together, lol.

    Poor Adam- just once can’t he have a cute gay guy go nuts for him? I’m starting to feel bad and I think others are feeling that way too by the way everyone is trying to fix him up with guys on twitter, lol.

    Okay…so much to catch up…the thread. I see something about a Dutch video.

    Wasn’t it great! They just looked like they were enthralled. It was awesome. I imagine that’s the face I have when I hear him sing live. I’ve run out of adjectives to describe it. What an amazing, great day today has been!

    I seriously believe some of these tweets are under the direction of his management. There is no way he has been acting completely independently of them against their wishes/approval. After all, Simon Fuller personally attended his birthday party just a couple months ago, so Adam is obviously making TPTB happy and following their direction.

  • Studio57

    People are wondering if Adam is drunk tweeting, lol.

    Dailylife- very interesting yahoo uk article. Only Kelly, Jordin, Daughtry and Jennifer made top 40 UK charts. Cook made it to 75 with his coronation song.

    And weren’t we all told not to request IIHY yet by the AO moderator as it will cause issues for the single if we do it now. I don’t know what to do. Adam can be overzealous and maybe giving not the best advise to his fans at this moment. I think it would be best to wait until the official Add date. Anyone in the know. (Kirsten MJ) is that what you would think too.

  • smeggingnuts

    So I just watched that Dutch video again and I really love seeing Adam in color. I love him in black but I love to see him is other colors. The look on the guys faces was awesome can’t deny the power of his singing. And that banter was just awesome and I just can’t wait for Jonathan Ross…..that is going to be sooooo epic:)

    Seriously girls. I am at home squeeing at all the goodness today!! So glad I get to share it with you guys. Thanks MJ for having these threads not just for us but for all the Idol fans.

    Jonathan Ross will probably be a hoot!

    Monte’s got his nails painted dark (blue?) in the Dutch video. lol Or has he done that before?

    I don’t think they’d play it here anyway, because the single isn’t out yet.

    Let’s blow this sh*t up!!!

    hehehehehe Adam is so adorable; he must be very excited about the release of this song but at the same time is like he forgot all the incidents that happened at the beginning of FYE and WWFM on the radio.
    Hope OTT fans hasn’t forgotten them.

  • alaadam

    I think Adam’s tweets were ok’d by his management. First he tweeted IIHY was coming to radio soon, then he tweeted what looks like the cover, then he tweeted about requesting it. Besides that, something seems to have Adam in a really good mood. Maybe he knows something we don’t.

  • rockdamama

On the same page as the album’s track listing, the site lists the “Hot” pre-orders, with FYE @ #2. I have no idea what this site represents, but I sure thought that looked pretty. :-)

  • alaadam

    checking twitter it doesn’t look like requests to radio stations for IIHU have gotten cray, so that’s good. Hopefully everyone’s learned from the last time.

  • TerBear14

    Oh gracious, I loved this performance! Adam looked great, the band looked great (Tommy in a tie!) and I loved the effect of going from B&W to color. The acoustic version in the Dutch video was great too! I just hope Adam is taking care of himself and that he is able to get plenty of rest when they get back home.

  • tls62

    I’m finally home….totally missed the party!! :(

    God, Adam is gorgeous. And Tommy…..get the hell out of town!!!! White??? Tommylicious.

    That crowd at the signing was unbelievable. Adam is so tender hearted, I’m sure he was overwhelmed when he saw the turn out. I’m so happy for him. :)

    So on top of all these great Adam goodies today, we apparently get to blow shit up too? How great is it being an Adam fan?? lol

    Glad you guys had fun today….being an Adam fan is the best, isn’t it??

  • Laury

    Yeah I think fans learned too. :)

  • lorismile

    Adam fan is the best, isn’t it??

    His band totally has the rock star attitude and look. How great was Monti’s smile at the beginning of the XFactor performance? He must be such a proud papa. Adam, Longineau and Monti look great together when they do their acoustic thing. I hope he can keep the band together for a while. I’m glad they stayed with him after the initial US promo tour last November.

  • luval

    wow that pic of Tommy. I really cannot think of one person (celebrity or otherwise) who fits the pretty, androgynous, elf description better than Tommy. Too bad.

    OHP has received requests for IIHU and has said they will play it..

  • http://legan0.tripod.com mama2dasha

    I am so confused by all this..do they usually start promoting songs this far ahead of the official release-or have they decided to release it now?

  • luval

    IIHY was one of the first songs I liked the best on his album. Of course this changed daily, but am glad it’s the next single. Such a great summer song.

  • cakeygirl

    @G105radio Thank you so much for playing If I Had You by @adamlambert You are the ONLY station in the area that I count on for great music

    and ohp said they are playing it later-who nos if they will or not

    mama2dasha-fans can request songs before it goes to adds, for instance, on my twitter gaga fans were requesting alejandro 2 weeks before adds

  • smeggingnuts

    I don’t know if this has been posted yet, some video from the crowd they were singing WWFM while they were waiting for Adam

    Fans should not start requesting IIHY until PD’s add it to their play lists.

    But, it’s moot. Adam said to do it and it shall be done. Wonder how long it will take for the “back-off peeps” tweet to appear.

    Does someone mind please posting the link for Adam’s X-factor performane on YouTube? (I know mj posted it up thread,but I can’t view it w/o the actual link,because my iPod touch sucks) .Thank You! :)
    Adam looks great in the pis as usual
    I don’t think IIHY will take off of Top 40 but I hope I’m wrong.I’m 99.9999 % sure though if RCA released SW right now,since it’s similar to WWFM,it could go to #1.I fthey release it as his 4th single,(if he has one) I don’t think it would do as well as it would if it were released now,because the WWFM moment will have died down.I flove IIHY as much as the next fan,but IMHO I think releasing it as a single is retarded JMO.

    Watch Hot 99.5 in DC take *months* to add IIHY …

  • http://mjsbigblog.com/luvadamlamberts-american-idol-tour-2009-washington-dc-re-cap.htm luvadamlambert

    I think Adam will say back-off if he’s the one that tweeted to request it…unless I’m forgetting and he’s done that before.,,I don’t think he’s ever said to “back off” when HE tweeted to request it-I don’t think he’s that schizophrenic…

  • koshka

    99.5 hot is my local station too…. They are typically a late adopter so I have zero intentions of reqesting for quite a while. I’m also a Sirius listener and will request as soon as adds start adding up. They typically play song months before they hit big.

  • claudette

    He is soo cute. Given the late night tweet, and the thrilling day it must have been for him, I think it might be a bit of a drunk and excited tweet!!

    LOL. I do expect a “slow down/be careful” tweet in the next day or so, but that’s Adamland.

    Honestly, what a high he must be on today.

  • lorismile

    I’m lucky in that I have the NY stations as some of my local stations. They were on board early for WWFM so hopefully they will jump on board soon for IIHY. Z100 just had an Adam Lambert weekend! :-)

  • Organic

    Honestly, what a high he must be on today.

    He had to be taken aback at the crowd in Helsinki today. And hearing them sing WWFM was terrific. And then the audience at the X-Factor was just so amazing. And to find out that he’s made the top 40 in UK. It’d be hard for anyone to sleep after a day like that.

  • Miss Chaos

    Ok you Tampa fans, are we gonna request IIHY on 93.3?

  • baebae

    The crowd singing WWFM is great. :D

  • Studio57

    They sure do. Although I am really suprised their HAC station The Pulse has never added him.

    Helsinki was I think the most impressive but I think Japan and Canada especially were awfully close. Oh, and then there was Singapore too, lol….

  • lorismile

    I was so touched listening to them sing WWFM while he was signing. I can only imagine how he must have felt, hearing that in a foreign country. So special.

    I’m not worried about Adam tweeting for requests for IIHY. I’m wondering if it goes for adds tomorrow. RCA didn’t announce WWFM add date either.

  • vmac

    Wow!! Adam looks soooo gorgeous, and the WWFM performance is perfection!! Love the pink tie!

    I like IIHY but I’m not sure how it will do on radios. Finger crossed that it will take off and fly high. I’ll request once I hear it on radios.

  • koshka

    So i think Kesha gets much more hate because people think she’s not a good role model (which i don’t understand) and she’s trashy (i disagree with that) than because of her live performances, but who knows. it’s probably combo.

    All I know is that this is one of my favorite songs. :)

    Judee.. IDK what exactly will happen. I think the desperation of many of the fans sounds to me to have faded. There will always be BSC fans, but as a larger force, I’m not hearing it as much.

  • BeckyMD

    i don’t think ppl need to know add date before start requesting songs. How many regular listeners know what add dates are? Radio stations can spin songs before add dates. When ppl hear a song on radio and like it and want to hear it again, they request.

    For fans…though, i think not overdoing the requests, thins will be fine… (need some popcorn too)

  • smeggingnuts

    I think I’m going to take mj’s advice and wait for an add date.

  • baebae

    Looks like the main Toronto station has IIHY on their playlist. I wonder if it’s because of the tweet. I didn’t notice it there before.

  • alaadam

    Well, apparently, they have been testing the song last week. Besides some smash/trash stuff, Philly station put up a poll.

    http://www.q102.com/pages/onair/richierich.html?page=2

    Results look good.

  • tls62

    I agree about the requests. How many radio listeners know anything about when a song is added? As a local listener, request the song politely and don’t harrass them. It’s obviously going for adds very soon or he wouldn’t have tweeted twice about it. Unless you listen to your station 24/7 how does the average listener know when it’s been added? I didn’t hear WWFM for a good 3 weeks after it was added on my local station.

    Was there ever in history an Idol song that didn’t get over 90% approval rating on an Internet poll? Pretty impressive welcome in Finland especially considering the fact that the whole country only has about 5 million folks. That makes a few thousand showing up for autographs even more impressive.

  • limi

    I am just overwhelmed with Adam’s reception in Finland, its just amazing. I’m so happy for him, he has really worked hard to be where he is today, I loved the comments Rickey Minor made about Adam when he was on idol, he’s such a hard worker and knows what he needs to do to be successful. Besides his gorgeous voice, amazing performing skills, sexy demeanor and stop dead in your tracks good looks, the quality I love the most about Adam is he is a good guy. He is always polite, respectful, takes time for fans and is appreciative. He always thanks his band, his audience, his fans. You gotta love this guy!!!
    It’s going to take me hours – (of undeniable pleasure) to see all the posts and links and videos, thanks to all of you for adding them all.

    I’m sure he’ll officially release IIHY before Wango Tango in Los Angeles, this is a big deal, lots and lots of teens go to this show every year.

    i have no clue since I am not an idoltard. I see some of these for non-idol singers with a good rating. I wonder what their excuse is. I was merely referring to the fact that it is being tested and polled. The results were a good thing-positive-but I was not focusing on them.

    Does anyone know if Adam is going to Norway? His ancestors on his father’s side are Norwegian. Adam said his grandfather teaches Physics in a university in Norway. He is the only person Adam mentioned so I don’t know if he has other relatives still there.

  • luval

    BestAI….I’m wondering about the Norway thing too.

    If I ever could ask ADam a question, I’d like to know if he ever had his geneology traced. We know everything about him but his family history. But maybe that would be too invasive. It would be real interesting I’m sure.

  • smeggingnuts

    BestAI
    I don’t think atm there are plans to go to Norway. I think Adam chooses to not talk about his family. Since they didn’t choose this life style he did, so out of respect he trys to give them as much privacy as they want/he can.

  • luval

    I’m dying to know what the IIHY video will be like. So far FYE and WWFM were genius (well TFM was ok but not the greatest). So when he gets back he has to make the video as well as rehearse for the tour.work work work. I’m hoping he really will have “costume” changes on the tour. Maybe even hairdo changes! And I’m talking about during the same show. How he’d do that I have no idea. The band would have to have some solo’s so he could accomplish all that.

  • Ceddies

    I just turned radio on to listen to OHP. As I was scanning to find the OHP station that I listen to, I ran across WWFM. I stopped and found it to be on Sunny 93.3 out of Tupelo, MS. I would call it a HAC station, but that’s just me. They mix some oldies in too, so don’t know what the actual classification is. Hopefully they will also play IIHU before too long.

    Today was an Adam day to not be forgotten. I loved all of it.

    I heard WWFM on our HAC station today at the tanning bed. I don’t normally listen to that station. It is owned by the same folks that own the First Baptist Church here in Alabama (j/k but close). Anyway, laying in the tanning bed, WWFM came on. Funny thing, the WHOLE PHRASE, “I didn’t give a damn” was taken out. Not just the word, the whole phrase. They just added it 2 weeks ago but hey, they are playing it (Edited) in South Alabama. The dj even said he had an awesome voice! WIN!!

    Wow, what a day!!! So many goodies, and I couldn’t believe the crowd singing WWFM in Finland. Adam must have been overcome by all the love, signs in the audience – just wowl
    Well, reporting from Miami, WWFM is #11 on Y100 here of their top 20 On Demand, one of the top pop stations. Also, they must be affiliated with iheartradio, because they offer the Stripped sessions (the one listed on the site is FEVER, that opens the show). Also, yesterday we were in 5 Guys, having a burger, and WWFM came on the radio, but don’t know what station – wasn’t Y100 but some other one.
    LOVE that WWFM from the Holland video….poor Adam, though, they introduce him to the cute guy but no cigar….great audience though!
    And I JUST NOW heard IIHY again on AOL Fresh 40, so rated 5 stars (again). I’m also voting on VH1 still. Boy, I know Adam works his butt off, but we are helping a little bit, no?

    So Lee Cherry took the pic of Adam sitting, looking like the Abercrombie model?? I had no idea he took that shot. His pictures are amazing. Loved the one with the roller skating chick. He’s very talented. Adam has the most amazing, talented friends.

    for what its worth….Adam Lambert is no longer the new kid on the block…he has had a single on radio that has done very well and he has proven that he can sell what he sings. This time around, requesting his newest song isn’t the same as requesting a song from an “unknown” singer. Adam is a proven commodity..people have heard what he can do…and if they tell the radio station that they have heard through the grapevine that Adam has another single out and they would like to hear it…well what is wrong with that? A polite: “If you have the new single If I had You from Adam Lambert would you mind playing it…I think it is terrific and think other peeps would like it. It sounds like it will be a cool summer sing along song to wail to while riding in the car with the windows open. If you don’t have it yet, hopefully you’ll play it when you get your hands on it. Thanks”.

    I don’t think one hit single qualifies as a proven commodity. I mean FYE bombed on radio – for whatever reasons it didn’t work. So he’s had one failure and one hit. He needs to prove himself some more to radio (oh not to me or his fans) before he can be considered a “proven commodity”.

    What a fab day, watching these vids and reading all your posts. Adam and the band look happy and relaxed. Those Finnish fans are absolutely fantastic. Love their enthusiasm. Just a truly great day for Adam and his fans. Tomorrow, I believe it’s Switzerland!!! YAY!!

  • GreenHippo

    HI everyone, I had a lazy day, but Twitter on my phone kept me up to date on Adam news. Wasn’t it great? Now I read on twitter he’s going to Zürich, Switzerland? is that true?

    oh I see I am blind, Cher right above says so too…

    LOL! Adam just tweeted.

    edited because girlygirl beat me too it.

    Adam must have sobered up a bit and realized he may have let the genie out of the bottle with that last tweet. :)

  • lorismile

    Well MJ did say she was waiting for the “back-off” tweet lol I’m thinking it won’t be as bad as WWFM. His fans were scared shitless after FYE fiasco and were desperate to get him a hit. I think quite a few (not the BSC ones and nothing will stop them) have calmed down. Maybe? lol

    Adam seems in a happy tweeting mood. I think he loved Finland!

  • Kanadie Bonttell

    I think it is fantastic that he made that clarification. He knows the power of his twitter account as a promotional tool. He is working it! :)

    I don’t think it was a back off tweet, he is just keeping it real.

    Aha, and here it is! LOL funny. But if all of us call just once a day, it will still be a ton of requests :)

  • mr

    Yay!! I knew there’d be a vid in the morning!!!

    As always- great rendition!!

    And am I correct I’m seeing him tweet a different single cover for IIHY??? Sorry if it’s already been discussed, still haven’t through all the comments… I’ll try but probably won’t make it before I’m off to work…

  • lorismile

    I think the other cover was just a fan made one.

  • emmuzka

    According to Sony Music Finland, there were 3 000 people in the signing gig! (http://bit.ly/dCUWBw)

    I’m pretty sure that where they been similar “cattle call” signings more in europe, the results would have been about the same. I hope that they’ll remember this interest when they’ll make decisions about the european tour :)

  • BeckyMD

    I think the other cover was just a fan made one.

    it’s an insert of FYE album booklet.

  • cher

    Emmuzka, did you see where I had posted to your question a couple days ago about a song sounding similar to Can’t Let You Go? I think it’s Bon Jovi’s This Ain’t A Love Song, primarily the beginning and the inbetween verses. I thought of it because I remember Lakisha Jones’ version of it during season 6. I loved it. JMO. What do you think?

    YMMV. It really depends on how you look at it..the album sold well durng its first week and continues to sell, and isnt selling the ultimate goal? Radio spins dont actually give profit to artists its just really good promotion…if a song is popular and ppl are buying it, it gets played on radio but this isnt always the case…I agree that he still has a long way to go and I do believe he needs to eventually sell at least a million copies of his CD to really cement his success…and I do believe he will get there especially if IIHY is well-received. I choose to stay hopeful cuz Im a fan but I really dont know about this single…
    I dont think its a bad song but its definitely not one of my favorites off the album, although it is catchy just like WWFM…I actually didnt like WWFM when I heard a snippet but once I heard the entire song I completely changed my mind…though I didnt think he would release it as a single…here’s hoping it does well.

    I was so touched listening to them sing WWFM while he was signing. I can only imagine how he must have felt, hearing that in a foreign country. So special.

    I was touched also. The crowd in a foreign country singing his song is something no PR person could plan. It was a tribute to Adam. I had chills and my eyes got watery for some reason. ;)

    LMFAO he talks to us like we’re his children…we all saw this tweet coming. Its hilarious really.

  • lucid-serendipity

    Apparently, IIHY has been playing on a Singapore radio station for quite some time now – see the top 30 at top right. I don’t know how single releases work in Singapore.

    The signing session in Finland is so reminiscent of the one in Singapore back in March, complete with screaming fans and snaking queues- has it been 2 months already? Lol.

  • cwm

    Adam is so adorable. He’s in a happy tweeting mood at the moment. I think he’s as excited as his fans are. Honestly, his joyful take on life is just so infectious.

    emmuzka… If you’re still here, can you tell us what the two girls were saying at the end of the video of the autograph signing?

  • smeggingnuts

    Here is some intermission video from someone filming in the audiance. I guess they don’t take their camera’s or phones away like they do on Idol

    Oh I know. I meant that a fan probably used that picture and just added the words to it, that I don’t think it was anything “official”.

    Thanks Smeggs for all your finds and the behind the scenes stuff during intermission.

    Ah, I remember that day so well! I was so thrilled to be able to see Adam in his promo concert *and* at the autograph session. :)

    While waiting outside my condo for the school bus to collect my sons last Friday, a fairly hot 30ish-year-old guy drove by in a sleek black sports convertible, and he was blasting IIHY (I’m assuming it was the radio, but either way :D ). I immediately jumped off the curb and started dancing, which promptly earned facepalms from my sons and their friend! :D

    I think IIHY is going to be a huge hit. It’s beat and lyrics are so infectious!

    Adam is a proven commodity..people have heard what he can do…and if they tell the radio station that they have heard through the grapevine that Adam has another single out and they would like to hear it…well what is wrong with that?

    Because a bunch of people doing that all at once, for a song that a radio station hasn’t even added to their play list yet, is annoying and it’s not going to make the PD’s add the song any faster.

    Wait until the song is added to your local station, then politely request the song, without spamming the DJ.

  • emmuzka

    song sounding similar to Can’t Let You Go? I think it’s Bon Jovi’s This Ain’t A Love Song, primarily the beginning and the inbetween verses.

    That could be it! *checks* Although I’m not sure since I don’t have any Bon Jovi in my iPod.

    Other options that came to me is Chris Kirkpatrick’s (from Nsync) song that was never officially released, called “Who Am I” It doesn’t sound that much the same, but just something in the chorus…

    Or maybe I’m just suffering from a bad case of deja vu. Dunno. But thanks for the suggestion, I love your detective work :)

  • emmuzka

    emmuzka… If you’re still here, can you tell us what the two girls were saying at the end of the video of the autograph signing?

    (Why did they interview those girls, I would have given much better comments!)

    The girls say that:
    - Adam is so great because he sings so well and has his own, unique style
    - The signature means so much for them, the signature goes up to the wall.
    - they queued for three hours
    - Adam was better “live” than in television
    What did he say? – He thanked them for coming and he said hi.
    - Adam’s best song is according to them, WWFM.

  • cwm

    Thanks for the translation, emmuzka!

    You know, when I saw that picture on the front page of the Metro newspaper, of the blond girl giving Adam a high five, I wondered if it was you! But then I realized that if it was you, you would have told us. ;-)

    I’m sure this is not the proper thread but for those waiting for tickets for Adam’s TORONTO concert, presale tickets go on sale this Wednesday, May 5th! General Public tickets, this Saturday, May 8th! Still not indicated on AO but it is listed on TicketMaster. Yes!
