    Is that YT the entire Elmo appearance?  Thanks.

  • supersonic

    Adam Lambert is not the first and only guy to wear a feather jacket.

  • Miss Chaos

    A red feathered jacket, with Black leather pants? During a Diva performance?  Just wondering?

  • HermeticallySealed

    Yeah . . . . nothing to suggest a similarity. . . .

  • lovetheusa1776

    Oh, lordy – crackin’ up here.

    If I remember correctly, Alex Newell said the the drag he performed on the Glee Project was suggest to him.  In any case I am impressed with his performances. He seems really comfortable and confident and never a joke.  

  • http://twitter.com/bentley1530 Bentley1530

    All of the glee divas seem to be inspired by real performers.  For me matching them up is just part of the fun.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Definitely – imitation is the highest form of flattery – I’ll take it.

  • supersonic

    He didn’t put the patent on that, either.

  • HermeticallySealed

     Considering the theme, I imagine ALL of the outfits are reminiscent of outfits ‘divas’ have worn in the past.

    “He didn’t put the patent on that, either. ”

    It’s not a matter of ‘patenting,’ but to claim there was no inspiration from is pretty far fetched. It is almost the exact same outfit.

    Man can be divas too~ Adam Lambert

    vh1:

    Spoiler Alert!  Is Glee’s Blaine Anderson destined to succeed VH1 Divas Host Adam Lambert? He’s definitely channeling his inner Adam in an image from an upcoming episode, conveniently titled DIVA….

    Cute video.

  • Axxxel

    One viewer less for Glee LOL.. so jealous of all of you who can see Glee live on TV…no matter how bad things sometimes are in Glee and how my heart was broken because of the “break-up” episode.. still am a Glee fan here…

  • Axxxel

    He isn’t … Just a coincidence that Adam wore that jacket during his performance on a program called Diva’s , (a program that he hosted and did the opening number, and performed a comedy skit as well)…and an obsessed “Adam Lambert fan” like just put 1 + 1 together and screams out of excitement .. LOL…

  • Axxxel

    He didn’t, his fans probably” did” :-). As a fan I am pleased but I have to admit that I would be even more pleased if a member of the Glee cast sings an “Adam Lambert song” on Glee…

  • HermeticallySealed

    And example no. 2, Tina’s pink outfit is based on Madonna’s Confessions on a Dance Floor cover. (Damn it, now my OCD is kicking in, and it is driving me nuts trying to place the rest of them >.< )

  • turquoisewaters

    Don’t know what you are all talking about. I have binders full of divas in red feather jackets and black leather pants.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Can’t be less as never watched.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Well, IMO, he put the patent on utter gorgeousness in that insane outfit.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HWRPW434YQTROZ3J5E4BSLWEYM H.A.

    I think Ryan Murphy must have seen VH1 Divas. He and NeNe Leakes tweeted each other the night Diva was on and told her good luck. Maybe he watch the show because of her and saw Adam? She’s also the star of his new show The New Normal.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HWRPW434YQTROZ3J5E4BSLWEYM H.A.

    Oh I get it now. I don’t watch the show but now I want to figure out who the other Diva performers are suppose to be.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Think it’s great they copied it – means Adam’s on their wavelength.

  • ANNIEBA

    Haha, I think the reference is pretty much in your face. Who else could it be? And Blaine practically quotes Adam’s “a man can be a Diva line”, but whatever, lol. Good to see he is on their radar as someone said. I have a feeling Adam might be on Glee sometime.

  • HermeticallySealed

     I recognize the green and gold dresses, but can’t place which divas they are based on. Ugh, and Google is no help, as the key words are just too generic.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Wonder if Adam will ever wear it again.  Still remember the first time he (anyone else here?) saw it at the Blonde’s fashion show (early 2012?) – when the model (male) walked out on the runway and Adam’s eyes glommed onto the thing.  Never thought I’d see him actually wearing it (much less with Queen) – whatta marvelously entertaining man.

  • Axxxel

    Of course thanks H.A. Totally forgot about the Nene Leakes-Ryan Murphy link… Nene Leaks also featured in Glee I think last season…

  • Axxxel

    Hi hi fellow  Adam Lambert fans, welcome and join the party in  the Glee sandbox…

    Also rooting for an Adam Lambert song on Glee… “Whataya want from me”… or “Shady” (for the more adult New York part of Glee).. Pitty they did not take Adam’s song “Naked love”… it was suitable for the most recent Glee episode called “Naked”… oh well.

  • Axxxel

    Your wording is so great… really LOL !!!

  • lovetheusa1776

    Lambert sandbox.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/PVEFG2TOUIXSROKUSO2O2DOWWE Taylor

    Aw, thanks for the welcome. I’m a fan of both! I’ve watched every episode of every season and both seasons of The Glee Project. I have a ton of twitter and facebook friends who are also big Glee fans, so I discuss the show with them. I should probably join in the discussion here every once in a while. I’ll try to do that in the future.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/PVEFG2TOUIXSROKUSO2O2DOWWE Taylor

    Gold dress, Mariah maybe? The green dress is so familiar, it’s really bugging me because I can’t place it.

  • http://twitter.com/starfishy2000 DD

    Wow, I saw so many comments and thought there was something new to see. Just the Lambert fans taking going nuts! I will wait til theres another thread for this episode….. But Blaine rocks the outfit and the poofy hair! Love it!

  • supersonic

    He put the patent on that line, too?

  • YankeeFan08

    That’s so cool that they copied Adam’s jacket. 

  • http://twitter.com/MissGolightly22 No Thanks

     How many male singers out there do you hear calling themselves a diva?  I’ve only heard Adam say it.

    I’m sorry but it’s blatantly clear Blaine’s whole get up is an ode to Adam.

  • ptslittlecomment

    Gold ress with fur is Aretha Franklin

  • Esqt

    Mariah…Celine…Tina Turner…Sheldon Lee Cooper…Aretha…Beyonce!

  • turquoisewaters

    That’s it!! How come I didn’t think of Sheldon?

  • Montavilla

    Don’t know what you are all talking about. I have binders full of divas in red feather jackets and black leather pants.

    Please send it immediately to Mitt Romney.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Unfortunately, that’s all they were able to copy.

  • http://twitter.com/adamluv1000 adamluv1000

    Yeah the same year and also used the same quote, “Men can be Divas too.” If you don’t see they copied Adam Lambert you are in serious denial.

  • http://twitter.com/imrahd imrahd

    LOL :))

  • http://twitter.com/adamluv1000 adamluv1000

    Exactly. And Ryan knows Adam and follows his career. I take it as a compliment that he quoted him on the show and used his outfit.

  • mjsbigblog

    I said this in another thread, but Ryan Murphy is a pretty busy guy, currently running 3 shows at the moment.

    More than likely the show’s talented costume designers caught the Diva show and were inspired by Adam’s outfit.  Unless Ryan wrote the episode, then maybe–because of the “Dive” reference.

    The costuming on Glee, overall, is really creative, with lots of fun pop culture references all over the place.

  • Axxxel

    Yeah, also like Blaine’s hair. By the way… do you still remember the Glee cast fotoshoot for Vogue ? At that time, in an interview,Chris Colfer (Kurt) said that the photographer said to the Glee cast ” more tiger, less kitten”… Seems that there is more “tiger” in the Glee cast in this Diva video..
