  1. loved that, I have never seen him sing that song with such a upbeat pace. Different, but it’s good and wish we could have gotten the last part.

  2. I can’t wait to see the rest of the songs he sang, and the ending of Mad World would be nice as well, talk about a leaving me hanging, payoff please?

  3. Love it! Hopefully we’ll get more video later. I’d love to have the whole song on my ipod.

    Reminder, VH1 Unplugged premieres on Wednesday!

  4. Just when I thought Adam had done “Mad World” every way he could, he pulls this out of his hat! Even one particularly nice melody change up. With him it’s always one surprise after another. :)

  5. Beautiful rendition of Mad World. Would love to hear the whole thing. The hat is too cute!

  6. I always have my favorite rendition of every song that Adam sings, however, that being said, I still enjoy it when he mixes it up and does something different. It doesn’t take away from the fact that I know and have heard the one that truly grips me in a special way. I just find he is so versatile, a true artist! One who keeps everything fresh and breathtaking!

  7. Oh! Man!! MW cut off!! No…..we NEED the whole song. Wow! I am lovin’ this changed up version. Monte and Longineu are really connecting well with Adam and they really help make this an amazing performance. Now we need the other songs (and the ending to this one) to this set!! Come on Australia please don’t disappoint and get the video up QUICKLY!!!

    Adam never ceases to amaze me with the way he takes a song and switches it up! (Throwing glitter to the Universe!)

  8. Wow, I loved that! And I didn’t know if I would like the sped-up version. Very cool. And, Adam just has some awesomely talented musicians backing him up.

  9. OMG!! That version is BRILLIANT!!! I have heard that song 20,000 times and each one is more sublime and brilliant!! Love the new upbeat version – definitely approaching the original Tears for Fears song (which is very excellent imo!)

    But it cuts off!! NOOOOO!!! Need the full version now!

    Also, I just love his hand gestures and expressions throughout – so perfect!

  10. Haha I love it, we are all like
    OMG BEST EVER…love love love……NOOOOOOO!!!!! Where’s the end!!!!!

  11. Great version .. Adam never fails to surprise and reinvent things .. both vocally and visually

    hope video’s of the other songs appear sometime

  12. Video of the entire Marble Bar set is coming!

    NovaFM@LambertUK There will be video… we have special video from his acoustic at Nova to come too. You will LOVE them, promise. about 4 hours ago via web in reply to LambertUK

  13. This is more like the tempo of the original Tears for Fears version which I always liked. It’s still one of my favorite Adam songs going back to his first performance of it, as well as his performance from the tour last summer. As much as I really enjoy the theatrical performances, I also love the acoustic stuff we’ve been hearing. It really shows me how talented and professional Adam and his band are. For me it’s always been his voice, all the other stuff is a plus. I am in awe, as well as being entertained.

  14. oh yeah! I can’t wait for the ‘special video’

    Somebody give Adam a Red Bull before that song? Sassy!

  15. As the AI judges said, Adam can sing anything, any way, and make it good. Definitely. He still can amaze me.

  16. Ohhh, please please please let us get a full version! Fingers crossed!

  17. “I like to take something you’ve heard a million times and flip it up…..I can.”

    Yes, you can; and what an understatement. Or really not an understatement on his part, I just think the statement was “under believed” at the time. No doubts now, that’s for sure.

  18. I’m looking forward to seeing what he did with an acoustic version of Music Again

  19. I like to see Adam stretch his vocal chops and just leave everyone with their mouths open. I can’t think of a performer out there today with the chrystal clear voice like Adam’s. Hope there is another video of this performance out there…with the full song. He sure likes the intimate Club scene performance doesn’t he?

  20. I love how he changed up Mad World. You never know what to expect with Adam and his music, except that it will be great.

  21. Karenw, I heard one of the things he did was on the “eyes baby eyes” part he went low instead of high. Not mid range but low. Can’t wait to hear it.

  22. where did that poster go from the mardi gras thread who said he couldn’t sing. What? Time to make that ENT appointment. Gorgeous!

    Loved it, he sure can spin a song on it’s head can’t he? And he’s said he really doesn’t listen to acoustic so he just knows what works for his voice and I’d suspect Monte and LP work on how to play it.

    I know in the little chat LP did a few weeks ago, he said Yellowcard was on hiatus for a while and he’s been with them so many years that I’d assume if they ever got back together, he’d go back to them. Too bad, he’s really talented and seems to click with Adam and Monte. Now if we could just see Tommy’s pretty face right now, perfection.

    So true! But what’s so great is that he can be equally brilliant in the most small and intimate of settings, and also in the largest of settings. Very very few performers can pull that off imo.

  24. tls62….Just watched mj’s historical chart..AI8 ..Adam Lambert..and heard him say that line ” I want to take a song you’ve heard a million times , etc. I can”. I love that. Thank goodness the judges believed in him. It gives me chills when I hear it now.(love the “chair” episode too). Anyway. here he is flipping, spinning, turning songs around. Never have I seen or heard anything like this guy. Amazing.

  25. Another masterful performance from Mr Lambert!

    Too bad, he’s really talented and seems to click with Adam and Monte. Now if we could just see Tommy’s pretty face right now, perfection.

    We’ll see what the future holds. It would be wonderful if Monte and LP could stay and tour with Adam. Funny, I’m not missing Tommy at all.

  26. I don’t think LP is going any where, because a fan tweeted him asking if he was going to leave the band, and he said “no, he was with Adam for the long haul”. I don’t think for a second he would give up a chance to stay with a star who going to be going all over the world touring, plus make more money. I think he, Monte, Tommy and Adam have great chemistry together and are becoming good friends.

  27. The band is awesome! They are so talented, and really do have awesome chemistry together!

    Side note, but I met Monte at Fantasy Springs – he is super nice with fans, meeting and chatting and taking pics for awhile. He was doing shots with some friends of mine at the hotel bar the night after the FS concert :-) Very cool dude.

  28. We’ll see what the future holds. It would be wonderful if Monte and LP could stay and tour with Adam. Funny, I’m not missing Tommy at all.

    I feel bad, but when I was at the FS concert, I pretty much only watched Adam the whole time – I was sorta like Tommy who? It’s kinda hard not just to focus on Adam when he’s on stage! And when Monte has a solo, I definitely notice him too.

  29. I miss me some Tommy, he is such an adorable Glitterbaby!!!!!!!
    and Adam needs moar glitter – this way he will outglitter that NOsferatu guy from Twilight ;)

  30. woah longineu was with yellocard? I love them!

    HOT pictures!

    I really like the band and flove them all except Tommy.I like Tommy but..i don’t know…

    Little did we know a year ago where all of that would lead us to today. I would have never believed a year ago that I would become addicted to youtube all summer, waiting for the newest tour vids to appear. Or that I would travel across the country to see somebody from AI perform. What a ride this has all been, and still is!

    I was just thinking today about the question from the gal from SYTYCD about if he has ever been a fan of someone with the intensity his fans have for him. I don’t know about anybody else, but before Adam, I have never followed anybody like I do him. I’ve had favorites through the years, and attended a few concerts here and there, but I’ve never felt so intense about a performer, ever. I hope he realizes that he’s changed up the music game for the first time in many, many years.

  32. Karenw, I heard one of the things he did was on the “eyes baby eyes” part he went low instead of high. Not mid range but low. Can’t wait to hear it.

    ooo thanks smeggingnuts .. that sounds interesting . I love how he changes up the odd line to give a totally new version of the song .. it’s become a bit of an obsession of mine to compare the “It’s me, I’m a freak”‘s in WWFM as everyone’s different .. lol

  33. I flive this version,but nothing tops the first time I heard it.Especially since I wa depressed then,I got chills because it was so beautiful,and then I just cried…

  34. We’ll see what the future holds. It would be wonderful if Monte and LP could stay and tour with Adam. Funny, I’m not missing Tommy at all.

    I feel bad, but when I was at the FS concert, I pretty much only watched Adam the whole time – I was sorta like Tommy who? It’s kinda hard not just to focus on Adam when he’s on stage! And when Monte has a solo, I definitely notice him too.

    While it’s nice to acknowledge the rest of the band, it’s only normal to focus on Adam. He is THE star after all.

  35. I feel bad, but when I was at the FS concert, I pretty much only watched Adam the whole time – I was sorta like Tommy who? It’s kinda hard not just to focus on Adam when he’s on stage! And when Monte has a solo, I definitely notice him too.

    Don’t feel bad. We all did the same thing in our group, and we all love Tommy. Adam just owns the stage and makes it impossible to look at anything else. Tommy doesn’t really have any bass parts that are highlighted, so it’s only natural to notice Monte more who is highlighted a few times.

    I hope they all stay together. They each are an eclectic part to Adam and work really well together. You can tell he really cares for each of them too, so I hope it works out that they can tour together.

  36. tls62: First time ever I’ve followed someone with intensity too! It’s so much fun (even though bb finds it creepy) just seeing what’s gonna happen next. This week Melbourne tomorrow, then Singapore. Skipping Hong Kong.

  37. Yeah I have never been this obsessed *cough* interested in a music artist even when I was a kid. I kinda freak myself out with how much I am online waiting for the next bit of news/video. Also kinda freaky with how much I know about him. Lol

  38. Monte and Adam sought each other out a few years back to be in a band together (Citizen Vein) and they have waited for this to happen for quite a while now. You don’t have to worry about Monte other than he will play with Madonna when she wants him to. I think LG is immensely talented and will do as Monte and work around any other commitments to work with Adam. Not sure about Tommy or Cam but we will see.

  39. @luval….

    I know he finds it creepy, but I don’t think he understands what an anomaly he is. Name me somebody that can do what this guy is doing. There just isn’t anybody. People can dislike his sound, look, etc., but there is no denying that he’s got something that nobody else can do. I won’t even get into the other stuff that makes him irresistible….that’s all pretty obvious. :)

  40. I love the whole band including Tommy! I can’t imagine the long haul without the whole group. Longeniu is the sweetest person ever, Tommy is adorable and Monte is the bomb. They all click together and I am pretty sure they will all stay together. Tommy can play almost every instrument and is good chemistry with the group. Adam can’t help it if we can take our eyes of him – the guys are tight togheter and hopefully will stay together.

  41. Not sure about Tommy or Cam but we will see.

    My personal opinion of Tommy is that he’s in glam rock heaven right now. From what I’ve seen of his past, he’s never been part of something this big before. I could be totally off base, but I think Tommy will be around as long as he’s wanted, and I hope that’s the case.

  42. I love the chemistry of the guys a lot. I to think they click very well. Though Tommy started to really stick out to me on Leno last week. I loved watching him bounce round in his little circle, it was so cute:)

    THIS!
    exactly. I have not followed someone like this since I was 12 and got Tiger Beat in the mail. People have mentioned the line “you make me want to listen to Music Again” and it is true!
    I had not even bought a CD in years until Adam and specifically bought an ipod so I could download his music during season 8.
    I now follow many artists, most of whom were introduced to me through Adam and this blog – good times. :-)
    And yes the game has changed for the better – even now when I go back a few years to see what I’ve missed nothing really great stands out, only one here and there – he is bringing a unique style and talent to the game.

  44. Whilst I know Adam is the focus and the “star” I must admit that I like the vibe and camaraderie of him and the band .. even though they all have their individual look they all seem to compliment each other and look good on stage together. It’s like the band members are the perfect accessories to Adam’s outfit (both musically and visually)

  45. I think I just listened to Voodoo 6 times in a row. Must stop..

    I really want this Mad World on my ipod!

  46. hehe well the man does know how to exceserize(god I can’t spell) lol

  47. And I haven’t been a fan like this since I was a teenager and waited for each new Beatles song to come out!
    It is really quite amazing how he has touched so many of our lives in such unexpected and delightful ways.

    sorry, didn’t mean the blockquote. That was me talking. rs

  48. What a treat to come home to this evening!
    Awesome version of Mad World!! WOW….. :)

  49. I had not even bought a CD in years until Adam and specifically bought an ipod so I could download his music during season 8.

    The more I talk to other Adam fans, it’s amazing how much everyone has in common. The last CD I physically bought before FYE was Fleetwood Mac The Dance, believe it or not. And nestled under the Christmas tree for me this year was an iPod touch for all of my Adam videos and songs. And like you, I’ve started following many other groups that never crossed my radar before Adam brought them to our attention. I guess it only stands to reason if you like his music, you’ll probably like the artists that inspire him as well.

    So I take it a full length video of Mad World and the rest of the set hasn’t surfaced yet? Hmmmm….it’s hard being an Adam fan at times. The waiting can be excruciating. :)

  50. Whilst I know Adam is the focus and the “star” I must admit that I like the vibe and camaraderie of him and the band .. even though they all have their individual look they all seem to compliment each other and look good on stage together. It’s like the band members are the perfect accessories to Adam’s outfit (both musically and visually)

    I agree. And while some don’t seem to be too big on Tommy here, besides looking the part, I think he was hired for versatilty. He was able to play Strut on Ellen in Monte’s place and also plays keyboard and bass. So if Madonna does come calling for Monte, Tommy can take over. But for promotional acoustic stuff, neither bass or keyboard is needed. I hope they all stick around and Cam has been pretty cute on Twitter so hopefully she’s learning the parts back in LA with Tommy and they’ll all be ready to go for the next concert in Canada! Adam and The Epic Fierceness :) I like Monte, he seems very grounded and a good friend to Adam.

  51. AnnisSD…It is so funny how the same thing happened to me. I bought an Ipod only because of Adam!!! No way was I gonna spend money on this for the crap that’s out today. He made me want to listen to music again. Gosh I’m so original ha ha.

    And of course tls62 and smeggingnuts and dcglam and the rest of ya of like minds. What did we do before Adam? This Mad World version is stunning and fun. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the session. Some day (maybe after he starts the fan club) we can have a convention! Just like the Trekers and Comic Book freaks. Yikes. A gi-normous get together. Can’t wait!

    I flive this version,but nothing tops the first time I heard it.Especially since I wa depressed then,I got chills because it was so beautiful,and then I just cried…

    Aww, luv, I know exactly what you mean! The first time I heard MW, it was haunting me for days, then weeks, after! I had loved the Gary Jules version before Adam sang it, but he just took it to another level. And the song is very personal to me too.

  53. AnnisSD…It is so funny how the same thing happened to me. I bought an Ipod only because of Adam!!!

    Well, I bought a new laptop just because of Adam ;-) J/K – but seriously, I was downloading so many of his performances that I ran out of memory.

  54. Luval that would be fun for sure. And come to think of it I can’t remeber what I was doing before the AMA’s with my spare time. Hell cuz of Adam I’m on twitter of all things. Hahah weird..if anyone is interest my twitter is @smeggingnuts I know who would of thunk…hehe

  55. Can someone explain to me again just what this showcase for the radio executives does for the artist? (besides giving them a free concert!)

    Probably like the promo gigs with radio that a lot of artists do in the states – a way to schmooze with the PD’s, and hopefully get more airplay from them.

    Vids are a very very nice bonus, though :-) (plus cute beanie!Adam pics!!)

  57. In the vein of making you want to listen to music again–

    I bought the Best of Prince two weeks ago, the Best of Queen one week ago, the Best of George Michael yesterday (in honor of his Mardi Gras performance), and the Best of Tina Turner today!!

    I haven’t purchased music in almost 20 years, but I’m doing so again. Too bad I can’t find many current artists I like that much other than AFL. If so, I’d buy their music too and not rely on the oldies but goodies I keep purchasing.

    What should I buy next? Hmmmm . . . .

  58. What did we do before Adam?

    Well, luval…..
    I used to be an avid reader, but ‘our boy’ has changed all of that. I haven’t read an entire book in over a year now — way too busy keeping up with him online!!! It truly has become like a second job to me, but one that is so entertaining.

    I have a question I’m hoping someone can answer. About the VH1 Unplugged show that is scheduled for Wednesday — I’m assuming it is televised. Do any of you know the time? I live on the east coast and would like to set my DVR.

    About Tommy — I sure would love to see him smile — just once! ;)

  59. KLI I really like Flogging Molly a lot they are an Irish rock/alt band. Millencolin is a cool swedish alt band.

  60. KLI:” What should I buy next? Hmmmm . . . .”

    You could get The Best of Earth, Wind and Fire. They used to be my favorite until Adam came along. Or Boyz II Men- always smooth and easy to listen to. That Mad World rendition is pretty darn good. BB is keeping us guessing. Miss Tommy. He’s such a cutie pie.

  61. OMG I just saw the preview of the 3D remake of Clash of the Titans…..errr sorry off topic got excited lol

  62. waaaaaaaaaaaaaahh! that’s it?! where’s the rest? this is so cruel…

  63. Esqt, welcome to the club as the rest of us circle this post waiting for more lol

  64. Aw, dang. What a tease video! I loved what we see/hear of it. Nice change of tempo.

    Are there other vids, or a full of this floating around somewhere?

    Great job (as usual) Adam~

  65. Ah, yes, The Best of Queen. Am so looking forward to Adam in the UK. Maybe Queen performance or David Bowie hook-up? This would be epic. I can only dream.

  66. You know Adam is a genius…he just is IMO. I will never get tired of a song he sings because I know each time will be different. You just never know when he is going to pull the string and give us what we didn’t know we wanted.

    Acoustic WLL, Sleepwalker (tonight show), Mardi Gras, Sunrise WWFM, and now this Mad World….all in the space of 9 days??

  67. Adam tweets and is on the move again, hopefully we get more videos soon:

    adamlambert Goodbye Sydney. Hello Melbourne!!!
    1 minute ago via Echofon

  68. love the emotion on his face and his hand gestures when he sang “look right through me”.

  69. Acoustic WLL, Sleepwalker (tonight show), Mardi Gras, Sunrise WWFM, and now this Mad World….all in the space of 9 days??

    He’s powering out one incredible, original live performance after another after another. Clearly, he’s enjoying himself, but also, I think, he’s working his ASS off, “entertaining” like crazy every opportunity he gets – passionately, creatively, and tirelessly – because he’s had and has so much explosive and ranging talent brewing in him.

    I love witnessing all the ways he’s choosing to express himself and his vision. His “Sunrise WWFM” was so raw and emotional I cannot help but believe that he was tapping into something very recent and real when he performed it, and his Mardi Gras FYE had me both grinning and giddy over his studded and spiked codpiece, his thigh- and butt-hugging latex and his glitter overdose.

    (The predictable comments of distaste, disdain, and off-putted-ness whenever his freak flag flies amuse me, too – Adam warned you that he’s not for everyone!)

  70. And come to think of it I can’t remeber what I was doing before the AMA’s with my spare time. Hell cuz of Adam I’m on twitter of all things. Hahah weird..if anyone is interest my twitter is @smeggingnuts I know who would of thunk…hehe

    as usual I am late for the party. I too joined twitter because of Adam, bought an Ipod, found MJs… etc.
    I could use a Twitter lesson though. Just knowing your twitter address smeggingnuts, I still don’t know how to twitter to you/ at you.. uhm ikd?? my Twitter is @GabiHare :)

  71. @keshasuxx miss you sugar lips.
    1 minutes ago via Echofon in reply to keshasuxx

    Ugh, sugar lips? Oh Adam…….please find yourself some cute guy!

    His “Sunrise WWFM” was so raw and emotional I cannot help but believe that he was tapping into something very recent and real when he performed it,

    At first I thought he was purely exhausted, but upon watching it again (all in the name of research!) it sure seems like it could have been something more. I sure hope not though, cause I don’t like to think of his being unhappy.

  72. You can count me on in regard to technology-challenged. I have a twitter account but since I just follow Adam I have no idea if I am doing anything correctly. I think I am. Next time I get on I will Twitter @GabiHare and @smeggingnuts and see if it works. My Twitter is @Daisydoddle.

  73. if we get together on twitter @Daisydoddle and @smeggingnuts we can thank Adam :)
    once I get off the phone I’ll try to send something…. :)
    and once i get home to my real computer , I can start following you, my phone is a bit hard to handle (fat finger syndrome).

  74. I am still gettingv the hand of twitter myself but its interesting. Like seconds after Adam was on Leno he was trending and got to #1 in a few mins was awesome.

  75. So I’ve worked all day….went out to dinner….done a load of laundry and we STILL have no video? I’ve stalked this thread like a vulture stalks his prey today….have the Aussie’s no heart? I’m dying here!! LOL

    So I guess we’ll talk twitter…I’ll gladly follow you guys if you don’t mind. I’m not an annoying twatter….I twat very rarely. I wouldn’t mind having a couple followers I know….I have no idea who the ones are that follow me and it’s a bit creepy IMO. :) @sassyretrochick

  76. Ok……finally read the thread and got that we are waiting for more video. I get it now. Sorry…….

  77. Ill do some following when I get home, I don’t mind it will be kinda cool to have some fellow twatters:) I can then link u guys to a few ppl that seem to always have the first news on Adam:)

  78. Also I may have seen apsomething that it won’t be shown until midnight est that could be something else lol

  79. Diggin’ this version of Mad World!

    And he looks so great all casual- and you guys know I love me some glittery OTT Adam as well- but this is also great.

  80. I sure hope not though, cause I don’t like to think of his being unhappy.

    Maybe he’s unhappy because people tell him who he should or shouldn’t kiss :-P

    The only person I “know” who is following me is Josiah Leming and he follows all of his fans. I rarely tweet but when I do it is usually to help something trend or to comment on something one of the Idols has said or to congratulate them on something. Yeah, kinda boring. If anyone wants to follow me I will follow you in return. I am @madnessinmotion

    Back on topic, the abrupt end to this video is painful. I really want to hear the way he ended the song. I love the jazzed up version. Who am I kidding? I love every acoustic song Adam sings. It speaks volumes about his talent that people are so blown away by his live acoustic songs.

  82. Here’s a link to novafm streaming, which is going to have Adam in the studio for a chat and performance. They keep saying he’s coming up, but it’s a two-hour show in all, so it could be awhile before he comes on.

    http://www.novafm.com.au/Nova100/streaming.aspx

    Update: They just said he’d be on in “about five minute’s time.” Love that Australian accent!

    About Tommy — I sure would love to see him smile — just once!

    This isn’t exactly what you asked for but it is as close as I have ever seen. These are pics from Adam’s Mexico vacation and Tommy is actually outright laughing in the 3rd picture down. I can’t think of any just plain smiles in any pics. Actully, I am a little freaked out at myself that I remembered that if I searched Adam’s vacation pics I would find a pic of Tommy laughing. LOL

    http://kradamized.com/2010/02/adam-lambert-and-tommy-ratliff-mexico-pictures/

  84. Ahhh I caught the second half of his performance, just got home in time :)

  85. Tommy has got a little grin in the pic of all them in the wet suits.

  86. smeggingnuts, you are right. I hadn’t noticed that before….that almost counts as a smile. :)

  87. OMG, cwm, that is so hilarious. “You’re a little too masculine for me.” He is just so real. It lights up my life to watch him be so open and honest with life in general. I am trying to take lessons.

  88. And another tidbit… since we’ve talked about Johnny Weir and Adam in the recent past on this blog, folks might appreciate this. Here’s JohnnyW in an interview with the LA Times talking about his admiration for Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, and Adam.

  89. madnessinmotion– I totally agree. I watched that whole interaction between Adam and Byron with a big ol’ smile on my face. So funny. Byron was like a great big puppy dog. I loved how Adam let him down gently with a compliment — “you’re too masculine for me” and worried about razor burn on his face from Byron’s beard. And how cute was that when Adam insisted that he’s “respectable” and “not a first-date-type guy?”

  90. That interviewer was cool. Even though he identified as straight Adam seemed to not know quite how to take him at a couple of things he said. He kept making sure he was nicely saying “No, just No”. LOL

    I bet experiences like that are another thing that is totally new to Adam. He seemed to be secretly asking himself, “Is this real?” I have watched that at least 10 times because it is so cute.

  91. Well for anyone needing a fix I have a new and improved video of WLL from Indio. This was made with the best audio/video into an awesome…err video (seems sorta a silly sentence) anywho enjoy I know I did

  92. I sure hope this link works. I have never tried to bring a link over from Twitter. Anyway, I have listened to this interview 3 times and laughed out loud, hard, all three times. Thanks smeggingnuts for posting it.

  93. haha, I guess I hadn’t refreshed the page because I was too busy listening to the interview. I didn’t realize you had already posted it. BTW, I just got done listening to it a 4th time.

  94. OMG, smeggingnuts, that interview was hilarious! Had me laughing out loud. Thanks for posting.

    Adam is so cool– he just rolls with the punches and always lands on his feet. With a smile and laugh.

  95. Wow, I can hardly keep up– as soon as I finish listening to one interview, there’s been another one posted. It’s a midnight feast! That Alan Jones interview was fantastic. Holy cow, he was showing some serious Adam love. It’s so great to hear an industry person gush over Adam as much as we fans do. He couldn’t say enough positive things about Adam, his music, his talent. Thanks for posting smeggingnuts.

    ETA: smeggingnuts, you’ve done it again! Off to listen…

  96. I cheat I have a few people on twitter I follow who’s (its seems to me)only job it is to serf the internet/twitter/youtube for new Adam stuff. hehehe I am a cheater and I like pumking pie

    Oh this is from the Mad World industry thing

    Really enjoyed this interview..very complimentary….and very about the music..great interview!!! :)

  98. Woot! That NOVA interview included a live in-studio acoustic performance of WWFM! It was, of course, beautiful! Loved it.

    And at the beginning of the interview, Adam mentioned that his luggage got held up at the airport. My theory: security alarms went off when they scanned his luggage in Sydney, and the security guys had to search through his suitcases, only to discover a studded codpiece, glittery corset, spikey jacket, studded jacket, sparkly jacket, bedazzled boots, spiked/studded legshields(?), chest harness, jars of glitter, etc. There was so much fabulosity in his luggage that it took them way too long to go through it all and the luggage didn’t make it onto Adam’s plane. So they had to put it on the next plane to Melbourne.

    HAHAHA

  100. Thanks for the feast this evening, smeggingnuts. You’ve really served up quite the variety platter with all of these goodies!

  101. Here’s a video clip of the interview with Byron Cooke where Byron asks Adam out on a date. It’s pretty funny.

    Don’t know if this is anywhere else, but the Byron Cooke interview reminded me. Here’s another Aussie interview where Adam talks about guys (interviewers) who because of the (AMA) kiss assume they should kiss. He says he doesn’t kiss everybody. He’s not a slut! LOL

  102. smeggingnuts – you’re Adam updates are the best anywhere online. Thanks so much.

  103. Oh this interview is great by Alan Jones

    This interviewer was so complimentary about Adam and his “glorious, glorious” album. “nice young man” And Adam’s comment about Sony believing in him….. just great all around. YEAHHHHHH!!! He drank the kool-aid too!

  104. Thanks for the ‘laughing’ Tommy pic, madnessinmotion.
    You made my day! :)

  105. Thanks! He’s so cute in a beanie. The codpiece was a local purchase, lol. I guess he didn’t have to take that through airport security, hee hee..

  106. I’ve listened to Adam interviews for well over a year now and I am still flabbergasted at his ability to communicate so well…he is so quick witted and always comes up with something funny. And his strongest asset is that he doesn’t take himself so seriously…he is able to go with the flow. Listening to Adam interview is like having a really good conversation with a friend…to the point that I tend to seek out interviews more ardently than I do new performances.

  107. Just catching up on everyone’s comments – I just love how many amazing goodies we’re getting out of the Australia trip! I was so afraid we’d be Adam-deprived when he’s overseas – but thankfully not! :-)

    Still hope we get the full version of MW – this version is sooo amazingly good!!!

    LOVE Beanie Adam! I think it’s like his Aussie costume, or something (well, not counting Mardi Gras, of course ;-) )
