  • Mateja Praznik

    So, guess who performed the Life Ball song last year:

    According to Wikipedia:
    2012: Melody Angel, Judith Hill, Truth Hurts and Natalia Kelly – Blindfold

    Natalia Kelly is winner of The Voice Austria. And Judith Hill is competing on The Voice USA right now.

    And I remember 2007’s song from Eurovision. I thought it was quite good, but it didn’t make it out of the semifinal.

  • Esther Macha

    Adam was awesome as Ali Baba.

    Best vid I’ve seen so far.

    The man is a monster on stage.

  • Mateja Praznik

    I wish Adam could take that costume home.

  • lexa

    It is like the event was tailor made for Adam! What a great show and great song. Hope we can buy it soon. Plus he looked amazing……

  • milwlovesadam

    Simply fantastic performance and international media there. What a huge and significant event for Adam to be a part of.

    Open Sesame! Adam Baba!!

  • Mateja Praznik

    Does anyone know when the song hits iTunes?

  • H.A.

    Isn’t Ali Baba suppose to be shirtless. No such luck?

    Adam Lambert’s slaves… #lifeball

  • mmb

    Wow. That’s a costume. And that’s a lotta half dressed thieves. Adam must feel like he died and went to his own personal heaven lololol. Beautiful setting in the middle of Vienna. I liked the song too. Fun!! Hope he gets to keep that amazing coat

  • H.A.

    @kinkykiedis as soon as all details have been finalised we’ll announce when & where to get the song!

  • Ronnie D

    From the outfit to his stage presence, he is just workin’ it like no one’s business lol. Hot dancers, fantastic production. I love it! I can’t wait to get this song!

  • lexa
  • bridgette12

    That was amazing to watch, the pageantry was unbelievable. It was as if a fairytale came to life. I hope Adam had a great time and now he can relax and enjoy the event.

  • Montavilla

    What a fun, glittery event that was! And hearing Willam and Detox (from RuPaul’s Drag Race), along with Vicky Vox singing “This Boy is a Bottom” in full Harem girl regalia was just the cherry on top. :)

  • girlygirl

    What a fun event and for a great cause. Loved Adam’s costume — I bet he had a blast

  • mmb

    Watched some of the live stream. Holy crap. BArbara Eden looks amazing. She’s must be at least 70. She still rocks that genie outfit

  • fuzzywuzzy

    What a cool, theatrical event! Adam looked and sounded amazing and he was so charming on the red carpet.

  • Kariann Hart

    No one can deny that Adam Lambert is American Idol’s #1 International Star! There’s just nobody like this amazing man! WOW!

  • realdeal

    No, he isn’t. Please stop crediting him with a status he has not earned. Sorry, he hasn’t matched Kelly’s success. When he sells the millions she has sold internationally, had the hits, made the appearances and has toured the world for a decade then we can talk and see if he is in the ballpark..

  • girlygirl

    No one can deny that Adam is very popular internationally, but he’s not Idol’s #1 international star — that would still be Kelly.

  • Axxxel

    He is the international Idol star in my heart ;-)

  • Axxxel

    Who can translate those german comments ? I only hear that they compared him to a Kristin Strumme or is it Strohme or ?? and they did mention that he did not win the reality show but still had a good career or something,,,

  • Axxxel

    Yeah, Judith Hill… Her coach asked her to sing a Michael Jackson song… is she still in the Voice competition this year ?

  • Axxxel

    Glamberts FTW !

  • Axxxel

    Pleasantly surprised by the song.. a mix of dance pop and slightly anthemic… Well done writers and co writer Adam !

  • H.A.

    Oh he has earned his international status.. His international fans that pay to see him perform at arenas is what matters not what a few idol stans of others drum up no matter how hard. Kelly has years ahead of Adam so no comparison but her career is irrelevant to Adam. More power to both of them for being international Idol stars.

  • Axxxel

    Adam is the only Idol alumn who did a world tour (America, South East Asia, Australia, NZ, Europe ) immediately after launching his debut album.

  • bridgette12

    Loved the costume, especially the shoes.

  • realdeal

    I just believe in giving credit where it is actually due. If someone has achieved a hard-earned status then I think they should be given proper credit for it. Saying no
    one can deny something that isn’t true is just funny to me. I didn’t say Adam hasn’t earned international status. Of course he has. But he is not the most successful Idol alum internationally. If he is then the most common criteria used to determine success aren’t being counted.

  • asifclueless

    seashellz … I really really love this photo. The lighting and the colours … WOW!!!
    You can see the intricate work on the coat with all those expensive and colourful Swarovski crystals.
    And the amazing man who is wearing this beautiful coat and turban.

  • H.A.

    Why you so worry what one fan says. Are you getting a cut from Kelly earnings to protect her legacy?

  • realdeal

    Credit where credit is due. I think Adam would applaud the brutal honesty that he hasn’t earned that #1 status. And yes, I am counting on getting a cut from her legacy so it’s important that the record be corrected for her hard-earned status.

  • bridgette12

    Really, do we have to turn another Adam thread into some bullshit argument over who’s the bigger star overseas. Kelly has been around longer and has sold more albums and singles. That’s a fact, so just let it go.

    I missed the ustream so thanks for this recorded version link! Adam was spectacular as usual and seemed to be having a blast!

  • lovetheusa1776

    There’s a time and a place for everything – perhaps today – on this happy occasion – is not the time.

  • Esther Macha

    The boy can strut. Loved it.

  • Incipit

    “BArbara Eden looks amazing. She’s must be at least 70. She still rocks that genie outfit.”

    Yeah, She’s 78. And I ‘could’ draw a comparison between that and inviting 79 yr old Frankie Valli to the Idol Finale. But I won’t. Heh. I think they both still rock it. YMMV.

  • mjsbigblog


    Getting SUPER CLOSE to banning long time posters. SUPER SUPER CLOSE.

  • bridgette12

    Sorry MJ

  • asifclueless

    LOL … H.A. … No such luck!!
    You know … Right? . that is … ADAM AND 40 LAYERS.
    But seriously, it was cold in Vienna and it’s outdoors.

  • lovetheusa1776

    A good man gave a great performance – happy for him and for all his fans.

  • Q3

    Yes, she is one of the favorites.
