Before Adam briefly played MC at the concert, he patiently took photos with fans, who waited 2 hours in very long lines. There were so many peeps, the photos were taken in groups of 10.

  1. I wonder how many hugs Adam had before the night was over. That’s a lot of good positive energy for him to take with him to the next stop–Conan! Either that, or it’s left him drained. Some fans tend to take more energy than they give.

  2. Adam’s fanbase might not as large as other established artists, but they are very passionate.

  3. Yeah, it’s really great to see that Adam is getting lotta love there! If only he has had the opportunity to perform at this and the other Jingle Ball events the last few days, what a incredible visual & audio feast it would have been! Oh well, there’s always the next year to look forward to I suppose! :-)

  4. I was at the jingle ball last night and I did get to meet him and get my picture made with him and 9 other people. I hate that they had to do it that way but they had to because OMG that line was SO freakin long!! When I stood in line for 2 hours on the dot. Of course I would have loved to have had a pic of me by myself with him and had a minute to speak to him but it was still worth the 600 miles I drove to meet him even if it were only for 30 seconds. He’s so beautiful in person… And has such a sweet personality. He was smiling ear to ear.even if he was faking it, he looked happy :) now I will say that the “hosting” was a complete joke, he came on stage 2 times for about 30 seconds each time :( they definately used him to sell tickets.I have no regrets though :)

  5. Why am I in moderation? Sorry should have said looks not lookr in my last post. Can’t edit.

  6. The 30 seconds were a blur to meet him. He’s getting awfully thin! My husband told him he had an awesome voice and Adam gave him the shoulder fist bump, lol

    Thanks for using my photo mj, that’s cool to see!

    What does nvm mean?

    It means Nevermind……at least that is what I think it means. :-)

  8. Can’t wait to see Adam on Conan tonight! yay

    MJ, love your site but your pop up ads are getting very annoying. Just sayin’

  9. I hope these fans of Adam’s also bought him album. If not, they need to!! :)

  10. He is getting thin. Conan tonigt. FYE video on Itunes tomorrow. He has 18K album sales so far so he shouldnt drop too much this, hopefully.

  11. I’ve been listening to his music through youtube since it came out. But I decided to go and buy it recently via iTunes. No Regrets!! It’s amazing. :)

  12. Can’t wait to see Adam on Conan tonight! yay

    Just wondering…….
    Is this live or a taped performance?

  13. Conan is taped. They taped it today I believe. So happy you guys got to meet him!

  14. Is he really that thin? Sometimes when you wear baggy clothes it can make you look slimmer. I like this casual look occasionally. When does he have time to eat or sleep?

    Conan is taped…They are all taped.

  15. I am really beginning worry coz I read that Adam’s getting thinner all the time. I remember that he said he was about 20lbs heavier than he would have liked coming off Idol. Guess he must have lost all of that and maybe even more since then… :( Let’s hope he stays healthy & fit coz we sure wouldn’t want to miss any of his upcoming performances! :)

  16. they definately used him to sell tickets.

    Someone said that before they announced Adam was going to make an appearance, they had a ton of tickets to sell. After the announcements, the tickets went really fast. Well, whatever it takes to make a buck, I guess.

  17. I did get to put my hand on his back in my photo. Barely though, it’s not like I was rubbing him through his four thousand layers of clothes. He’s tall and slim. Certainly not sickly though. He has a slighter frame then you would expect. My hubby is also 6’1 ” but of football player frame. Totally different.

    He’s very pretty in person.

  18. I am really beginning worry coz I read that Adam’s getting thinner all the time.

    I’m sure the people closest to Adam will make sure he is healthy. He and his band will be travelling out of the country beginning of next year, so he really, really needs to stay in top shape. I hope Tommy stays healthy. He’s been sick a couple of times recently, and his schedule hasn’t been anything like Adam’s.

  19. z100 tickets were sold out before Adam. I know because I checked when they announced he would be there!

  20. Excuse me…shallow moment…sr4mjc….you were so close…could you tell if he was wearing cologne?…He’s sooooooo pretty at times, handsome at other times.

  21. adam_lambert_rocks

    I’m sure getting your picture taken with Adam with a bunch of other people wasn’t the most ideal situation, but was better than nothing. I’m glad you got to get in a picture with him at least. I got a tweet saying how bad the m&g was last night and hoped that it wasn’t going to be one of Adam’s new trends. Argghhh. I’m sure he tries to accomodate as many fans as possible. With so many people wanting to meet him, it was probably the only way they could do it with the amount of time they had to work with.

    sr4mjc–Adam does look super skinny. Did he smell good? Several people have talked about how good he smells. Shallow, I know. But I’m curious!!

  22. Conan is taped’ ¦They are all taped.

    Same as when Conan was in NYC. Taped then shown later that same night.

    Is he really that thin? Sometimes when you wear baggy clothes it can make you look slimmer.

    I was at the CBS Early Show standing a few feet away from Adam on the plaza. He certainly wasn’t wearing anything baggy that day :) He is stunningly handsome in person and very thin, much more so than he appears on TV or video or in photos. Cameras just don’t do him justice.

  23. Sorry, I did not smell any cologne. I wasn’t even drinking and it’s a blur, lol

    My quick recap. There was a long line to wait for Adam. I waited about 75 minutes. When it was time you were brought up stairs in groups of eight. I was hoping when we got to the top of the stairs that we could take pictures of Adam when the group before us was there. But the had him behind black curtains so you ddnt see him until it was time for your picture.

    I walked up and luckily was short so I was shuffled next to him and then they took the photo. It was a blur, it happened so fast.

  24. GaGaGlambert….You are so lucky to have seen him at the CBS Early Show. Of all the shows he’s been on, I replay this one over and over. He sounded the best here and looked the most gorgeous if that is possible. He says he loves food (breakfast especially). Probably just cutting the carbs to look Rock Star fantastic. Now he should just “maintain”.

  25. Hi sr4mjc, hey so jealous! I wish I could meet Adam upclose just like you had, but as I live half way across the world I guess this is probably a remote possibility. :(

  26. It’s a shame that one of the greatest singers/entertainers of our time (yeah, I said it) isn’t scheduled to sing at these Jingle Ball shows. I am wondering how all that scheduling took place. I can’t imagine being a fan at one of these things and Adam is there, but isn’t scheduled to sing. Excuse me…what?!

  27. Of all the shows he’s been on, I replay this one over and over. He sounded the best here and looked the most gorgeous if that is possible.

    I totally agree, luval. His performance of Music Again was utterly spectacular! It is now one of my favorite songs on his album. Adam seemed so happy and was having so much fun. It reminded me of his performance on Idol of Play That Funky Music.

  28. He’s fierce up close but also pretty. I get where he was going with the album cover, especially meeting him. A dichotomy. I just hope it’s not lost on the masses as a generality.

    I don’t think he’s ‘before his time’, he’s just not ‘of this time’. We’ll see if he can break the space time barrier.

    At the very least there is a lot of creative thoughts going on in his head. Were just in a creative rut from our male entertainers in the US.

  29. Wow, they didn’t even bother to give him his own microphone, that’s how much of a “host” he was at this event. I looked at the webpage for this Jingle Ball, and there’s his picture at the top of the page above everyone else. I don’t blame people for feeling cheated by the bait-and-switch marketing tactics of these Jingle Balls.

  30. I don’t think he’s ‘before his time’, he’s just not ‘of this time’. We’ll see if he can break the space time barrier.

    :) Let’s hope so…

  31. I agree with those who said Adam is really pretty (actually more delicate-looking than I expected). I saw him at the barricades this summer, 1-2 feet away from him. I had been staring at him for over a half an hour when he got closer and closer. Every bit of him was gorgeous. Most stunning are his very light blueish/teal eyes. He has perfect facial features, and lucious freckled lips. Straight/white teeth and most friendly smile. At that time, he didn’t look overweight at all, so I can imagine how thin he must look now.

  32. I love and respect Adam Lambert the person. I love Adam the singer/performing artist. I realize now the true meaning of ‘fan’. I care about Adam, I am a real fan for the first time in my life, and I am old enough to be his granny.

  33. martha

    I love you and what you just said! With all the strife in the world, doesn’t it make you feel just wonderful that Adam is enriching our lives with his music? I have been a fan of many a singer or group but nothing and no-one has ever touched me like this man.

  34. Tweets from Conan performance…. :)

    @susiefierce

    Adam killed. Emo. Beautiful. Happy. Improvised on WWFM. Awesome!!!
    24 minutes ago from Echofon

    Gunmetal leather pants; brown leather jacket. His voice was HUGE in studio. He just glowed. Conan brought him 2 couch 4 goodbyes.

    Seats were great. Fourth row, middle rt. Directly in front of band. They sounded incredible and looked great. Show was very fun. Great time.

    How many times for “great” in last tweet? #wordfail Tom Arnold = manic and nuts. Brought Adam over for promos.
    10 minutes ago from Echofon

    Hee! I’d be jellus too. He looked stunning. He and Conan just chatted away during commercial. Cheryl Hines and Adam all touchy as usual.

    Effing epicness of epic proportions!!!!
    28 minutes ago from Echofon

  35. He is stunningly handsome in person and very thin, much more so than he appears on TV or in video or photos.

    Lord have mercy, that’s too much lusciousness for one person!

    Tweets from Conan performance’ ¦.

    Thanks for those tweets! Can’t wait for the show tonight.

    It’s always fun to watch Adam interact with people like at this Jingle Ball. It’s so obvious he loves to be around people and enjoys meeting and talking with everyone. You can’t fake that.

    I also agree with everyone’s description of Adam in person. I sat in the front row at two concerts this summer and also saw him at the barricades. I was truly amazed at how different he looked on stage vs outside. If you compared him during WLL to the barricades, you’d swear it was two different people. I couldn’t believe how delicate his features were and how thin he was. I didn’t even lift my camera for a picture…I just stood and watched him float by us. We all found it very strange because the other Idols looked pretty much the same as they did on TV and stage. He truly is a chameloen.

    Excuse me’ ¦shallow moment’ ¦sr4mjc’ ¦.you were so close’ ¦could you tell if he was wearing cologne?’ ¦He’s sooooooo pretty at times, handsome at other times.

    LOL luval…Shallow?..not! I have heard Adam say in more than one interview that his favorite cologne is “Dior Homme”. Didn’t someone (maybe Michelle Collins? during martini minute?) actually smell him during the interview and swoon?
    Anyway, I wonder how many female fans will be buying Dior Homme for their hubbies/boyfriends this Christmas. Then they can just close their eyes and imagine all sorts of things.

  38. “Anyway, I wonder how many female fans will be buying Dior Homme for their hubbies/boyfriends this Christmas. Then they can just close their eyes and imagine all sorts of things.”

    *raises hand*

  39. stampsgal..I’m speechless..and teary…..thank you so much for posting. After rereading many times, I was thinking “how lucky for Adam ” for a dad like Eber. Now, I’m thinking, “how lucky for Eber” for a son like Adam. This is what true love looks like.

  40. ‘Anyway, I wonder how many female fans will be buying Dior Homme for their hubbies/boyfriends this Christmas. Then they can just close their eyes and imagine all sorts of things.’ 

    All things considered, do we really need to get gender-specific on the fans?

    ;)

  41. All things considered, do we really need to get gender-specific on the fans?

    oops…my bad, wjmtv. As Adam says “sexy is sexy.”
    (was speaking from a personal point of view)

  42. Adam’s been eating Freshology meals I saw him carrying the food bag in from the car at the AMA rehearsal. It’s healthy.

    I think they have no choice but to keep everyone moving I noticed at the Early Show you couldn’t peel some of the fans off him once they get him in a necklock lol.

  43. stampsgal, thank you for finding and posting that link to Eber’s speech. Very insightful and moving–plus I loved what he said about the AMAs. What amazing parents Adam has.

  44. Conan promo just said Adam Lambert on tonight show after the new. Nothing else just about ADAM

  45. He (Eber)went on that the AMAs had three hours of suggestive musical acts with bleeped out words, raunchy dancing, crotch grabbing, breaking whiskey bottles, smashing window with a mic stand and setting a piano on fire. “A family show.” he joked. Then Adam took the stage to close the show and he pushed a male dancers face in his crotch, groped several women and the french kissed his band’s bass player. (To which the tavern crowd cheered.) He said that Adam’s performance lead to him being banned from several shows. He said if Adam had pulled out a fake gun and pretended to shoot his bass player dead, no one would have said a peep.

    So sad..but, so true.

  46. Hi guys! Thanks MJ for giving me a shout out for these videos I shot! My boyfriend bought me that front row ticket so I could be as close to Adam as possible! I have some fun gossip to share…

    First, I got there at 5:45 and was ASTONISHED to see the line for Adam in the Celebrity Club level meet and greet. Seriously peeps it was wrapped around the floor. It was longer than most of the lines at Disney world (to draw an analogy). The other celebs had almost no one in line to meet them. When I finally did get to meet him (right after I shot the video), I managed to stand next to him-but in front kind-of-bening my knees. I was happy for that! They said NO autographs, presents or personal interaction, but of course I ignored them LOL!! After they snapped the pic and were herding my group off, I started talking to Adam and this was our convo….

    I had a red book in my hand and he asked ME if I wanted it autographed. I said, oh no this is a present for you! It was a first print hardback edition of Linda Goodman’s Love Signs (Astrology, very well known author) from 1978! Since we all know Adam loves astrology I knew he would appreciate it and he seemed excited to recieve it. Then I pulled out the details magazine and he signed his autograph on the cover. I told him I loved him, he looked into my eyes and gave me a sweet thank you! And then he gave me a GIANT hug. He really is a wonderful hugger =) All the women were looking at me like they wanted to kill me…seriously…

    The radio staff was pulling me away yelling at me for stealing that extra time (he was just their cash cow) but I didnt care! It was priceless to me. I got an autograph and gave him a gift!!!

    Then, they were telling me to leave but I begged the girl to let me get back in line since this was my only Christmas present and all I wanted was a solo picture with Adam and she felt the pain in my eyes and let me sneak back in line. I called my boyfriend and told him to come to the club level and get in line. They were asking if there were any people waiting in line solo, I raised my hand, they pulled me out of line and I started following them. My boyfriend had just got up there, saw me, and just followed me and the staff.

    When we got to last stop before Adam they started yelling at me to “get out”! I told them they gave me permission to get back in line but they said I was not permitted to go take another picture but said my boyfriend could take a picture. He said he would give up his place for me, since it meant so much to me, pleaded with them, but they refused again. So they made me stand there while he got to walk right up to Adam and get the ONLY solo photo of the night. I was in tears still begging them and they threatened to call security or the police, i was like “Are you KIDDING me, I just want a PICTURE! This was my ENTIRE Christmas present and the ONLY reason i’m here! But…. on the positive side, I now have a picutre of Adam and my boyfriend together (the two loves of my life) standing next to each other and looking very sexy might I add ;)

    I also think it’s cool that Adam got a break from all the crazy female fans to meet a guy that was #1 attractive and #2 a big fan like us. It’s probably a rarity lol. If you want to see the pic it’s #65 on the jingleballtampa.com photo review http://www.jingleballtampa.com/cc-common/gallery/display.html?album_id=210258

    He told Adam he was a big fan and has loved him since his first audition. Said, But I think my girlfriend is one of your biggest fans and is standing right over there so sad that they wouldnt let her take another picture with you. He looked over at me and said “can I autograph something for her? I feel so bad!” My BF got my album personalized…TO EVELYN YOU ROCK ADAM LAMBERT. Such a sweetie pie! He looked like he was frustrated with the way the radio station was treating his fans.
    Hope you like my review!! w/b any comments =)

  47. evelyn…what a fantastic time you had and i am soo glad you shared it with us, i felt like i was right there with you!!! i am soo jealous and i am so glad you didnt give up and got as much out of it as possible.

    i love him as much as you do and i am so happy for you.

    thank you for sharing!!

  48. btw.. forgot to add, the only reason the bf got that pic solo was because the staff was too busy telling me to stay away and they were between groups of 10 so he just walked right up. He actually didnt understand until later that he was the only one who got one on one time with Adam. He figured that’s what they did for everyone and I just wanted another solo picture LOL. He didnt know that everyone else was in a group of 10 and were complete strangers.

    And by crazy female fans I dont mean any of us… I’m talking about the women, like the ones who were standing in front of me in line conspiring how they could try and grope him. Said, “But we will wait until after our picture so that way we will get our picture before they shut down the meet and greet”. They were very drunk and aggressive in their manuerisms. It was very creepy and does make me worry for him a little bit!

  49. I was in tears still begging them and they threatened to call security or the police…

    Oh my! I’m glad it didn’t come to that.

  50. Thanks adamlover!! xoxoxoxo you were there with me in spirit~! I was so excited to report back the details to my “family” here at MJ’s =)

  51. i just checked the picture of your bf and adam..and its such a great shot!!

    good for you!!

  52. SexyEvey….thanks for sharing…you know we all depend on fans like you to bring the experience to us. great details!

  53. btw.. forgot to add, the only reason the bf got that pic solo was because the staff was too busy telling me to stay away and they were between groups of 10 so he just walked right up.

He didnt know that everyone else was in a group of 10 and were complete strangers

    That’s so funny cuz I saw that pic when I was browsing through them, and thought you boyfriend must be someone important or famous cuz of the solo pic!

  54. HOLY SHIT!!.. BEST EVER!…black leather on all…Monte rockin his sparklin NYE guitar…….

  55. That was absolutely the best version of that song he has done. The part where he says. It’s me I’m a Freak. the way he did the me was so amazing. He is so dynamic and an amazing performer. That was hot, beautiful, stunning, awesome, emotional, pure perfection. IMHO

    His band is amazing too. Did I mention he looked Fierce

  56. Ahh – I was wondering where everyone was discussing Conan! Oh, I loved the vocal riffs he did on WWFM – more than he’s ever done before! And LOVED the glitter guitar!! And Adam looking super fine!

    But major lulz to the SCORNED handshake between Adam and Conan. That was hilarious!

  57. I wish Adam had had an interview too. OMG with Tom Arnold – that was OOC – Adam should have been doing that interview instead – that would have been PRICELESS! Epic sing off between them? ;-)

  58. Hi SexyEvey
    1/ Your bf is good looking and very loving to you
    2/ I love your recap. I could not stop laughing when I read it.
    3/ THANH YOU for taking time sharing the story.

  59. SexyEvey, your boyfriend is priceless!! Hang on to him for sure!!! Thank you for the pics. Adam is just amazing, isn’t he?

    FYE is #1 in Israel!!! Yay!!

  60. she felt the pain in my eyes [snip]
    I was in tears still begging them…i was like ‘Are you KIDDING me, I just want a PICTURE! This was my ENTIRE Christmas present and the ONLY reason i’m here!

    Wow, overreaction much?

    Wow, overreaction much?

    LOL…well, it was my ONLY Christmas present and since he didnt do the meet and greet in Tampa during the Idol’s tour I was really looking forward to meeting him and taking a picture with just him and not 9 random strangers. Im sure you can understand that…

    Thank you guys for saying those nice things about my boyfriend! He likes to lurk here too once and a while (lol) so I wont spoil the surprise =) It will definatly make him smile if/when he sees them.

  62. I also agree with everyone’s description of Adam in person…. I was truly amazed at how different he looked on stage vs outside. If you compared him during WLL to the barricades, you’d swear it was two different people.

    Kanadie Bonttell, this is so true. It’s difficult to explain or even understand until you’ve experienced it. When he was relaxed and interacting on the plaza at the Early Show, he really looked like a different person. I took a lot of photos, but none completely captured what I saw in person.
