American Idol alum Adam Lambert dropped by Live with Kelly & Ryan on Wednesday (Oct 2) to chat about his new album, Velvet: Side A and perform his single “Superpower.”
The singer lead the audience in a rousing chorus of “Happy Birthday” for host Kelly Ripa, who was celebrating her special day. After chatting a bit about his favorite holiday Halloween, Adam shared that he doesn’t get recognized in public very much! The singer plugged Queen’s 2020 tour which will take him and the band to Asia, Europe and more.
Later in the show, Adam took the stage to perform “Superpower.” There were a few technical issues at the start, but Adam handled it like a pro. And sharing the stage with Adam? His fellow American Idol season 8 alum Allison Iraheta on background vocals! Backups have become Allison’s side gig. She regularly works with former Idol band leader Rickey Minor, and she recently toured with OG winner, Kelly Clarkson.
With co-host Ryan Seacrest in the house, it was a real American Idol reunion (without mentioning the show even once…)
