    There better be a good video tomorrow, Vietnamese glamberts, we’re counting on you:) lol

    He skipped Broken English in Bali concert, hope he’ll sing it this time. Love love love that song!

  • bridgette12

    He just keep amazing me how he handles himself in these interviews and press conferences. He’s so relaxed and comfortable talking, that he makes others around him more comfortable doing the interview. I can’t wait for the concert. 

  • Klaine

    How did he create such a huge international fan base that others don’t . he seems more popular outside the us. And did an international tour right after idol… Guesses don’t hold your breath for P2…

  • bridgette12

    It was a good duet, I hope that do it again. 

  • HKfan

    He did great in what seems like a very formal press conference (saw a video of the whole thing), hope we get good videos from the concert.

  • Nadine_Bitch

    This is the whole video of Press conference:

    Wow – The nasties are in full cry on that YT.  

  • bridgette12

    Isn’t P2 suppose to head out on tour with some group for a few months.

  • ANNIEBA

    I really think it is all about Adam’s voice. His vocal ability is greatly appreciated in Asia and Europe. I mean, his music is truly great but I think Adam got a lot of exposure from the movie 2012 and TFM. However you feel about that song it was a pretty big hit in Asia and showcases Adam’s voice perfectly. Now they are being to exposed to Adam’s considerable charm and personality and they are loving him even more. I also think his openness strikes a certain chord too for some reason. Whatever it is, I’ ll take it. It is a huge market and opportunity.

  • bridgette12

    I don’t pay attention to the crazies, I just enjoy the videos.

  • bridgette12

    Great pictures, they are so pretty. Do anyone know who that guy is that’s to the right of Adam. He seem like he might be important. 

  • lovetheusa1776

     Don’t know they’re crazy until I read them.

  • lovetheusa1776

     That profile shot is a winner – not too many like that.

    I also like that profile shot.  Adam has accomplished a lot and Idol should be proud of him!

  • newinNM

    Possible live stream for the concert, 7:30 am EST h-artistry.com/xem-live and World clock timeanddate.com/worldclock/fix… for anyone who is interested.   

  • rlj101O

    I’d love Adam to have a press release all over my face

  • barbls23

    Adam has such presence and is so articulate! So Impressed! I hope the livestream works tomorrow morning at 7:30 am EST http://www.h-artistry.com/xem-live! The sneak video of the Rehearsal was fantastic and Adam and Sauli walking into the hotel was so adorable!! Adam conquering Asia!! Who can resist Adam! He is so adorable and so talented!!

  • ANNIEBA

    OMG! You made me spill my drink,lol!!

  • lexa

    Can’t believe I am watching the almost hour video just to watch the parts with Adam. Only 15 min in and too funny him trying to get away from the sick guy!  Ha

    He is so good and funny in these international situations!  I could honestly watched another hour.

    “Now they are being to exposed to Adam’s considerable charm and personality and they are loving him even more. I also think his openness strikes a certain chord too for some reason. Whatever it is, I’ ll take it. It is a huge market and opportunity.”

    Adam carries himself so well in interviews and press conferences. His charisma, positivity and straightforwardness are definite assets. It doesn’t hurt that the man is so handsome, either. lol I’m hoping that his international tour will be a great success.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Adam always strikes the right tone, with a balance between both confidence and humility. He’s charming and candid, articulate and thoughtful. I think that this is all natural too, and not the product of intense coaching by publicists.

  • Axxxel

    uughh… Adam Lambert looks so gorgeous ! *shallow*…

    The guy who sits at the left hand side of Adam at the press conference is- i think- the managing director of the Hennessey office in Vietnam… you can see his introduction in the beginning of the complete video…posted earlier on this thread. In the beginning of the speech, that guy said that he was having laryngitis  or something and asked the journalists not to stand too close to him and as a joke Adam tried to move away from him.

  • Axxxel

    if it is the press conference, maybe the managing director of Hennessey Vietnam office.

  • Axxxel

    Adam did not want to answer a question related to his “les miz critique”.. Yeah !!

  • Axxxel

    Thanks !! meaning this is only less than 30 minutes away !!

  • Axxxel

    Thanks one more time !! just a joy watching Adam talk …

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Possible live stream for the concert, 7:30 am EST h-artistry.com/xem-live”

    I am only getting a blurry image of what looks like Adam onstage at this site. Is that what others are seeing?

  • Axxxel

    Maybe it is also a bit the way he looks… He does not look like a typical western fair skinned blond guy with blue eyes (Sorry Sauli)… Even though he does not really sunbath or something… when photographed, his skin shows a brownish colour, and that colour and his( usually but not always) dark hair, makes him more relatable to Asians and maybe some europeans…

  • Montavilla

    I am only getting a blurry image of what looks like Adam onstage at this site. Is that what others are seeing?

    Yes.

  • Axxxel
  • Axxxel

    not Adam hehehe

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Thanks! That’s a different link than the one posted earlier.

  • Axxxel

    but there is no connection now… I screamed victory too soon..

  • Axxxel

    it’s on again… lasershow

  • Axxxel

    actually lookinfg forward to the korean singer !! Yeah it is her !!

  • Axxxel

    Aurea is up next, they are showing her video’s… ooh she thought that she would have a career in theater… where have we heard that before ??

    Yeah, her set is starting !!

  • Axxxel

    she is singing I feel good from James Brown.

  • HKfan

    The Korean girl was very cute and good on the Korean songs, and Aurea sounds great……waiting impatiently for Adam though. Good stream.

  • ANNIEBA

    Wow, Aurea is great! Wonderful voice and stage presence. I am thinking I would love a collaboration between her and Adam. They sound amazing together. I am loving her and her band!

  • Axxxel

    Dancers intermezzo

  • Axxxel

    Yeah, Adam’s introductory video;s !!

    sounds like “if I have you !!” aah he is clean shaven !!

  • YankeeFan08

    That was an awesome intro!  Too bad the sound isn’t coming through that great.

  • Axxxel

    Wow, vocally the duet of Adam and Aurea is much much better here…”Are you going my way ?” yeah, I would but the Hennessy Vietnam editors not. lots of censor !!   Remember Sexy Adam on his knees for Aurea ?It started again, but Aurea was in long dress evening gown…and… all the sexy parts are cut out and the camera focused on the audience instead….
    Once again thousand thumbs up to Tommy’sguitar  solo and so good to see him up front and centre stage during the solo !
    this is the first time in my live that I have seen Adam performing live through Live stream ! Maybe because I live in the same timezone as Vietnam and this will not cut off part of my sleep yet.. unless I cannot come down from that Adrenaline high after watching gorgeous looking Adam and great looking, acting and performing band, backupsingers and dancers…

    Still my favorite performance remains “Shady” !! really really good !!

  • ANNIEBA

    This was one of the best live streams I have had the pleasure to watch of Adam. Man, he was on fire. What a f***cking voice! AYGGMY was epic vocally. Really, he and Aurea need to do more together. And I loved Shady too, one of my favorite Adam songs ever. Too bad for the brief lost signal but I am sure we will get more complete vids. Wow, I thoroughly enjoyed that!!

  • bridgette12

    I can’t wait for the videos, he looked and sounded great. You can tell he was enjoying himself.

  • ANNIEBA

    I am watching the recorded stream right now. Now this is LIVE singing! The energy between Adam and the crowd was intense! Oh man, we have a long time to wait for another Adam performance, it is just never enough, lol.

  • Nadine_Bitch

    Things I’ve done for Adam. I’ve watched live stream several times, the idol concerts(Ricky site), his performance of NCOE on idol & VH1 diva etc etc at 4 am in the morning. Yeah Timezone sucks! lol

    It’s better when he’s in Europe and Asia. Like when I watched EMA’s, Queenberts(kiev) & MAMA. The time was just right for me:)

  • Axxxel

    wow 4 am in the morning…but you saw queenbert live in Kiev ! wow !

  • seashellz51

  • Nadine_Bitch

    Yup, 4 am most of the time when he’s in US.
    Kiev was around 11pm for me, same as the EMA’s.
    Crazy, I know. hahaha

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/X3EBGLZMUFDHE2PTJBT266WO74 Andy

    Another GREAT performance by Adam. He has so much talent, and so much more confident on stage. Can’t wait to see him live when he is back to the US>

  • lexa

    That was a great show!  He is just so in his element on a big stage like that. 

  • YankeeFan08

    Video of Adam arriving at the red carpet with bodyguards in tow.  Look at that reception from the crowd!  Awesome!  Rock star!!

    Watch from 1:35.

    Happy New  Everyone!

    Always great to come here and read about Adam. Great press conference. From the music I have heard so far from Vietnam-amazing:-)

    Adam has started 2013 with a bang!  Long may it continue.

    I cannot help but comment on what this year holds for Adam through my looking glass:-) There is something coming to an end for Adam (Please I am not saying its about RCA- it could be anything Lol:-)

    However, there is a new beginning  which most of us will be excited about. Its both visual and audible.  This is the journey he is about to take. It should plant the seeds for what he could become:-) Especially if involves anything humanitarian-this is so Adam;-)

    I have not commented on the #LesMiz situation-I dont need to.The universe never makes mistakes:-)

    This is a very busy year for him. He should look after his health and all should be well:-)

    Till then

    Regards

    B-Babie

    Damn, at 1:00 of that red carpet video the security guy looooks mad.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Really loved this vid – can just concentrate on his face and movements – and in the background his beautiful vocals on “Map” – great song – one of my favorites.

  • bridgette12

    But I do have to laugh at something, with all of those bodyguards, Adam is taller than all of them.

    But loved the reception he got, he looks like a star.

  • askance

    This was a very nice event to watch! Adam has great stage presence that seems to grow with the size of the venue ;). The reception he got was great, it was almost a bit moving. I loved seeing Aurea again too, she was great her as she was in Shanghai.

  • http://twitter.com/Loretta31 Loretta

    Adam speaking words is always a treat.  So charming and well spoken.

    I should have watched the live feed.  I bet it was something.

    Glad Vietnam is so embracing and loving Adam.  Good for him. 

  • Axxxel

    Yeah… lovely picture but is that a picture from the Vietnam concert ? One commentor thinks it may be from the Bali concert.

  • Axxxel

    Thanks ! cute little dance moves with his hands and upper body :-)

  • Axxxel

    Check out this thread in MJSbigblog http://www.mjsbigblog.com/idol-headlines-for-1412.htm

    Nadine has posted the recorded live stream of the concert in 2 parts !

  • milwlovesadam

    Check this out

  • lovetheusa1776

    It was pointed out by another poster that during WWFM, a fan held up a sign saying, “we want nothing but you being happy always.” 

    Can understand that.

  • milwlovesadam
  • milwlovesadam

    This looks like it was just amazing. The fans were eating him up, singing along, and going crazy. And, he looked and sounded pretty fiiiiiiine. Yum.

  • Nadine_Bitch

    I’ve already posted it on the headlines thread but I’m going to post here again anyway;)

    Adam’s interview with CCTV in China is already up! This is a huge honor and accomplishment to be interviewed by the predominant state television broadcaster in mainland China. It is own by the Chinese government and said he was the first Gay to be interviewed.

  • milwlovesadam

    Has this been posted yet? Full Adam. No crowd screaming noises. Ha! They really had to edit his dance moves in AYGGMW. Dang it. I’d like to see them. They got a great show. But, you can hear him begging for better sound, many times. And, I think he had no in the ears at several times, just like on Divas. He still manages to pull out a great vocal.  What a pro.

  • bridgette12

    I downloaded that video, absolutely Fever, Shady and AYGMY. 

  • milwlovesadam

    Oh Wowz. Check these out, fan vid straight on of Trespassing, Fever and AYGGMW. Gawd, how I love this guy. Nobody else out there like this, nobody.

    Terrific interview, plus both Adam and the lady interviewing, looked great on camera. I have been a fan of his from the beginning, it still amazes just how good he is talking about any subject. It would be the great to get the viewpoint about Adam from people who don’t know he is or have a preconceived idea of who he is. I hope he do some more interviews with this lady, they clicked well together and both of them very attractive on the screen together.
