Adam Lambert Collaborates with Rob Cavallo, Guests on Ryan Seacrest Radio Show Tomorrow Before AMA Announcement

Adam Lambert’s got a lot on his plate at the moment.

He’s in the midst of recording his post-Idol debut, set to be released on November 24th, and he’s got a song on the soundtrack of the highly-anticipated diasaster flick, 2012.

It’s a pretty exciting time to be a glittery alien from the planet fierce!

News of collaborators for Adam’s highly anticipated debut come every day, mostly through the twitterverse.

Yesterday, @adamlambert tweeted, “Last studio day w Rob Cavallo! Can’t wait for everyone to hear our glam rock!!!”

As it turns out, Cavallo has produced 7 tracks for Adam Lambert’s upcoming album, in addition to working on “Time For Miracles”, the theme song for the upcoming disaster flick, “2012“.

That tidbit comes from a press release announcing the appointment of Cavallo to the newly created role of Chief Creative Officer at Warner Music Group. The emmy-winning producer has helmed records for David Cook, Green Day, Paramour and My Chemical Romance.

Which Cavallo-produced songs make the cut for the finished album has yet to be determined–Adam is still busy with the recording phase of the disc, due to be released on November 24.

Cavallo joins a list of collaborators working on Adam’s album, including   RedOne, Ryan Tedder, Greg Wells, Claude Kelly, Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and Linda Perry.

More Adam News: A music teaser featuring a snip from “Time For Miracles” and a short interview with Adam was released on the internet Friday. The 2012 theme song is expected to be available for digital download by 10/20. A music video Adam shot last weekend is expected to follow.

Tomorrow morning, Adam joins Paula Abdul and Snoop Dogg at the Beverly Hills Hotel at 9:30 am PT to announce the 2009 American Music Award nominations.

Plus, according to a tweet from the Ryan Seacrest sidekick, Negative Natalie, Adam will be a guest on Ryan’s Kiis radio show tomorrow, @NegativeNatalie: Tomorrow – 830 am pst @AdamLambert w/ @ryanseacrest – Adam will have some news… Yay!!!!!

  1. Out of all this news, why am I MOST excited about Adam being on Ryan’s show? I know why. Maybe we’ll actually and finally get a date for his single!

  2. Hopefully we will get a date for his single. This TfM snippet is killing me -I need the whole thing now!

    ETA: It certainly is

    pretty exciting time to be a glittery alien from the planet fierce

    and just as exciting to be a fan!

  3. Hoping, hoping, hoping the Adam storm is starting, and it’s about time. TPTB need to take advantage of all this good PR that’s happening organically!!! :D

  4. I’m guessing Adam’s news is that he’s performing on the AMAs. :D I’m thinking they still haven’t chosen his single yet.

    I’d be really happy if Adam’s Rob Cavallo collab yields some stuff like Rob did with My Chemical Romance on The Black Parade.

  5. Adam storm is coming.. his single is not released yet. I bet Ryan wants to get a scoup of TFM and off course the release date of his single..

    Yahhoooooo

    TfM MTV review

    Even my “Idol”-bashing coworker [name redacted to prevent hate mail] was overcome with Lambertitis once he heard the preview. After lifting his jaw off the ground, he said in a daze, “That dude can blooooow.” If Lambert can convert the biggest hater out there, forget miracles, friends. It’s time for champagne!

  7. I don’t listen to Ryan’s show and I don’t live in LA. Will I be able to listen to live or repeat on the internet?

  8. I love this line

    It’s a pretty exciting time to be a glittery alien from the planet fierce!

    thanks mj

  9. It’s time for champagne!

    Well said JimC. I do believe it is time for celebrating. What a fun review.

    I don’t listen to Ryan’s show and I don’t live in LA. Will I be able to listen to live or repeat on the internet?

    If you want to listen live, check out Ryan’s show’s website. You should be able to find all the stations around the country that carry his show. (We have KISS 107 here in Cincinnati too and Ryan’s show is broadcast).

    If you don’t care or want to catch it live, I’m sure there will be a few people that record it and you someone should be able to point you to a recorded copy if you check out tomorrow’s comments.

  11. Jim’s new word for Adam’s TFM vocals:

    brizzonculent

    I want it to trend on Twitter. It’s brilliance. :)

  12. I have a feeling David Cook will be nominated for “Permanent” best rock male performance. Anyway I’m hoping that Adam announces it…that would be cool!

  13. Can someone please tell me how Adam is going to be on Ryan’s show at 8:30 if he is going to make the AMA announcement PROMPTLY at 9:30. Adam has to be there and be in place to announce at 9:30, not first be there at 9:30.

    Here is the press release again:
    Announcement PROMPTLY at 9:30

    Even the press have to check-in at 8:00 am. Wouldn’t that take more than a half hr?

    The timeline doesn’t make sense. Maybe Ryan’s segment starts at 8:30 but Adam will not be on until after the announcements. Or it is pre-recorded?

  14. Loved that article! It was brizzonculant!

    Now I just hope people will start giving him the benefit of the doubt.

    ( I mean JimC)

  15. Even my ‘Idol’ -bashing coworker [name redacted to prevent hate mail] was overcome with Lambertitis once he heard the preview.

    Yaya.. Adam’s amazing voice has changed one hater mind .. Way to go Adam.. one at a time … no need to rush… just one at a time… ..

    But no champagne yet… not yet..

  16. sidewalkstory it could by phone

    those signs were awesome!!!! lol I remember last November we went on a field trip in school to the national art museum or something.the most interesting part was the HUNDREDS of port apottys set up for the inaugaration.rofl .they were in the backround of some of those pics…

  17. Even the press have to check-in at 8:00 am. Wouldn’t that take more than a half hr?

    The timeline doesn’t make sense. Maybe Ryan’s segment starts at 8:30 but Adam will not be on until after the announcements. Or it is pre-recorded?

    It could be prerecorded or the two locations could be very close.
    Where is the AMA announcement coming from? Does anyone know?

  18. Is that California time for the Ryan interview and AMA announcements? so what will it be for Central time zones?

  19. Even my ‘Idol’ -bashing coworker [name redacted to prevent hate mail] was overcome with Lambertitis once he heard the preview.

    Yaya.. Adam’s amazing voice has changed one hater mind .. Way to go Adam.. one at a time ‘ ¦ no need to rush’ ¦ just one at a time’ ¦ ..

    and THEN world domination?!

  20. Can someone please tell me how Adam is going to be on Ryan’s show at 8:30 if he is going to make the AMA announcement PROMPTLY at 9:30.

    He’s probably just going to call in.

  21. All I can say about Jim Cantiello’s review of TfM is “Wow!”
    (OK, I’m me, so I do need to say a bit more.)

    …Adam Lambert’s voice sounds nothing short of amazing, mind-blowing, brizzonculent. (I had to make up a word there, because I’m fairly certain there’s no string of letters that could properly convey how awesome he sounds.) Even on, like, the 150th listen to the snippet, I still get dizzy when his voice slides on the line “I ain’t givin’ uuuuuup on us.” Like buttah.

    Even my “Idol”-bashing coworker [name redacted to prevent hate mail] was overcome with Lambertitis once he heard the preview. After lifting his jaw off the ground, he said in a daze, “That dude can blooooow.” If Lambert can convert the biggest hater out there, forget miracles, friends. It’s time for champagne!

    ITA I have listen to that clip way too many times and I still am not tired of it!!!!

    Heading back to LA from Atlanta. AMA nominations tmw and you know what that means….. Adam!!!! All those fingers and toes crossed worked :)

    Yay, I love her Adam interviews!

  23. sidewalkstory it could by phone

    Before the show? When they are assembling to announce at 9:30? Isn’t there a sound check even if there is no singing?

  24. star: Can someone please tell me how Adam is going to be on Ryan’s show at 8:30 if he is going to make the AMA announcement PROMPTLY at 9:30.

    He’ll do what every glittery alien does — use a StarGate (that was in honor of Roland Emmerich) or a teleporter.

  25. Yay, I love her Adam interviews!

    She’s my favorite. She was always tickled by Adam but yet remained professional.

  26. I only have one criticism about the JimC review. I don’t get BonJovi at all. I do get Aerosmith only because Tyler and Adam can both wail and for the obvious Armegeddon similarities, but BonJovi? Not seeing it.

  27. He’ll do what every glittery alien does ‘” use a StarGate (that was in honor of Roland Emmerich) or a teleporter.

    Of course; why didn’t I think of that?

  28. Heading back to LA from Atlanta. AMA nominations tmw and you know what that means’ ¦.. Adam!!!! All those fingers and toes crossed worked

    I luv the way these reporters get excited about interviewing Adam! It makes it exciting for all of us. Now, let’s just hope they ask other questions besides, “What will you be wearing/singing on the AI tour”.

  29. Laura Saltman (Dish of Salt) tweet:

    Heading back to LA from Atlanta. AMA nominations tmw and you know what that means’ ¦.. Adam!!!! All those fingers and toes crossed worked

    Yay, I love her Adam interviews!

    Yeah, she has alluded to Adam getting “curious” with her on more than one occasion.

  30. those signs were awesome!!!!

    They were! Some were downright hilarious.

    Adam’s interview with Ryan will be a phone interview. He’ll already be at the Beverly Hill Hotel, ready to go, I’m sure. Phone interviews are done far more frequently for than in-person interviews for radio. There is really no need to be there in person other than if the band or singer is performing live in studio or if it is a dual promotion thing (like with the Top 3 homecoming packages).

    I really liked that Cantiello piece ‘“  very clever and sweet!

  31. He’ll do what every glittery alien does ‘” use a StarGate (that was in honor of Roland Emmerich) or a teleporter.

    Too cute! Why didn’t someone think of it earlier?

  32. He’s probably just going to call in.

    Yes, you must be right, star. The two locations aren’t near enough to each other for him to be there live. i just checked and it looks like KiiS FM is in Burbank and the AMA announcement is in Beverly Hills.

  33. wait… wasn’t Jim C. the one who did not like Adam? Or am I confusing him with someone else?

  34. Can someone please tell me how Adam is going to be on Ryan’s show at 8:30 if he is going to make the AMA announcement PROMPTLY at 9:30.

    Likely either phone or using the voice from the ustream setup at the AMA announcment as that is a Dick Clark production. The AMA announcement is at the Beverly Hills Hotel. It’s possible Ryan will also be there.

  35. Before the show? When they are assembling to announce at 9:30? Isn’t there a sound check even if there is no singing?

    This AMA is being made into a bigger than normal press event. They will probably finish all the set-ups and sounds checks a couple of hours before it starts. Adam’s hair and make-up will be done before 8:30AM. My guess is that Ryan will get no more than 15 minutes with Adam at 8:30AM. That gives Adam 45 minutes before the announcements start. And I think there are some interviews directly after the announcements.

  36. I like the idea of the glittery alien teleporter/transporter thingy better! It’s more fun!

  37. That give Adam 45 minutes before the announcements start.

    That should be enough time for make-up.

  38. “brizzonculant”

    Would that be the scientific name of the storm clouds on Planet Fierce?

  39. Before the show? When they are assembling to announce at 9:30? Isn’t there a sound check even if there is no singing?

    I don’t have a prob with the time element. I’m guessing he could phone it in, and sound checks don’t require the actual talent. I would think maybe a couple of minutes out of Adam’s time to do makeup, etc. would be all he needed for the Ryan thing.
    As a reporter, we’ve always had to get there way before the talent to set up (and there are always the stragglers who delay everything so better to tell all media to show up way ahead of time). Nothing weird there. The talent can come in 5 minutes before and be just fine.

  40. I’m a little surprised Perez hasn’t weighed in on the TfM teaser video. He posted an item when the 23 sec. snippet of LLWD was leaked. Heck, he just posted a copy of Archie’s video blog about his Christmas tour. But nothing about this song or the AMA’s … ??

    hmmm. Are his feelings hurt for some reason? Maybe he’s upset because he didn’t get invited to party with Adam at Teddys …

  41. advern: wait’ ¦ wasn’t Jim C. the one who did not like Adam? Or am I confusing him with someone else?

    Adam was not his favorite — he was #1 Alli #2 Kris.

    But he was not ever nasty about Adam and never wrote about his “shreeking”. Jim Cantiello and Michael Slezak had other favorites but really were never in the Adam hater camp.

    Rickey on the other hand ….

  42. LaurelG- I would imagine TFM isn’t Perez’ thing. We should probably be happy he is keeping mum. He could be trashing it.

  43. Laura Saltman (Dish of Salt) tweet:

    I think Jim C. was referring to the little sound bite from Amazon’s website as being like Bon Jovi…the one without the wailing.

  45. Can someone please tell me how Adam is going to be on Ryan’s show at 8:30 if he is going to make the AMA announcement PROMPTLY at 9:30.

    Telephone? I can’t think of any other way.

  46. Heh…this is 3 people standing at a podium reading off a list of names. Nothing fancy, no band, no audience (just media peeps). It’s probably in a small ball room with some fancy “window” dressing and some AMA insignias and an enlargment of the trophy. The whole thing shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes.

    I’ll bet my life that Ryan’s show is sending a mobile crew to the Hotel to interview Adam, and maybe dear sweet Pauler, too. C’mn Ryan’s show isn’t done on the cheap. Now Adam may be “in studio” but it will be a live Adam feed back to the studio. No cell phones or land lines on this one.

    So, should we take bets on what Adam is wearing. Suit and tie, or leather jacket and t-shirt, or will he be a bit OTT?

  47. Thanks jms and luv. There must be a local radio station that carries Ryan’s show.

    I have watched the TFM video over and over and it just makes me want to see more of him. I love watching him sing. I can’t believe we are only days away from a music video.

  48. xuziqueue
    That gives Adam 45 minutes before the announcements start.

    That should be enough time for make-up.

    I bet that Adam’s hair and makeup is done before Ryan’s interview/announcement/news/whatever and they he just gets a touch up before the announcements.

    Hope he wears something great! Like something from the Robert Sebree photoshoot.

  49. I forgot about that one Janus. When I got online that day thankfully the video was up and I didn’t hear the first snippet until I watched the video about 100 times, lol.

  50. So, should we take bets on what Adam is wearing. Suit and tie, or leather jacket and t-shirt, or will he be a bit OTT?

    I think a jacket and tie.

    But how about taking bets on if it is a new outfit or one we have seen previously?

  51. Love Jim’s article. I think we should try to get #brizzonculent to trend on twitter. I hear rumblin outside Adam storm is kicking in.

  52. The interview with Ryan Seacrest more than likely has been pre-recorded. I seriously doubt Adam will be in 2 places at once unless his clone has arrived from Planet Fierce. This is why they know Adam has a surprise.

    I’m hoping Adam has Emo hair tomorrow.

  53. So, should we take bets on what Adam is wearing. Suit and tie, or leather jacket and t-shirt, or will he be a bit OTT?

    But will it be emo or Elvis hair?

  54. I’m hoping the BIG announcement is going to be that he is performing on the AMA’s. If the BIG announcement is just the drop date of his single, I wll feel duped.

  55. On Ryan’s radio program doesn’t he have a live feed you can go to to listen to his station no matter where you are in the World (LA times)

  56. I would imagine TFM isn’t Perez’ thing. We should probably be happy he is keeping mum. He could be trashing it.

    A lot of times Perez will simply post something, make some noncommital statement and then say, “what do you think?” His site does get a ridiculous amount of traffic so the exposure is kind of like Ryan tweeting the video. Besides, the vast majority of comments that I’ve seen on most sites (AI related or non-AI related) have been positive so I’d expect the same from Perez’s readers.

  57. Out of all this news, why am I MOST excited about Adam being on Ryan’s show? I know why. Maybe we’ll actually and finally get a date for his single!

    LOL me too. But Im most excited about the fact that Adams gonna be interviewed again :D. For the first time in like almost a month XD
    And this is probably a sign of more interivews from him to come. Yay

  58. Great article and great news!!! I can’t wait to hear what Adam has planned for us tomorrow. I hope we get to see a tape of the AMA event.

  59. I bet that Adam’s hair and makeup is done before Ryan’s interview/announcement/news/whatever and they he just gets a touch up before the announcements.

    Dang, it’s gonna be an early day for Adam tomorrow.

    Aw, but that little Amazon snippet is so pretty. Can’t wait to hear how it builds into that amazing wail.

  61. But will it be emo or Elvis hair?

    And will the words woman or baby even come up?

  62. I don’t get BonJovi at all. I do get Aerosmith only because Tyler and Adam can both wail and for the obvious Armegeddon similarities, but BonJovi? Not seeing it.

    I think he’s referring to the amazon snippet not the AOL vid clips

  63. So, should we take bets on what Adam is wearing. Suit and tie, or leather jacket and t-shirt, or will he be a bit OTT?

    But will it be emo or Elvis hair?

    And will he have enough self control to not molest the mic stand?

  64. So, should we take bets on what Adam is wearing. Suit and tie, or leather jacket and t-shirt, or will he be a bit OTT?

    A tank top and suspenders to placate Drake after their tiff.

    OK, I didn’t really go there.

  65. Okay…come on you guys and gals. This is Adam we’re talking about here. This is just one of the first appearances he will be making in his industry post idol and there are going to be cameras and this will be on the entertainment news programs tomorrow and more cause well it’s ADAM. So, that being said, yes he is going to be all dolled up early for this. Hair, makeup, fresh manicure (he says he does it himself at night…get busy Adam) Does he or does he not have that sweet new facial hair still…ooooooh I hope so and if so, I would say he will be decked out in leather and lots of it. Guy liner all smudged up and I bet he is sporting a new tat somewhere too.

    For those of you who want to listen tomorrow…open this link up, save to your favs. At the top left is the button for the live feed that streams daily. Just remember this is 8:30 pdst….11:30 edst.

  67. I love Jim C’s article, full of humor, a little hyperbole, and a teensy bit of snark (did he really refer to Brian May as both elderly and a squeeing fangirl? LOL).

    And, I completely agree with him in that I’m not really decided on how I feel about the song, having not heard it in its entirety. But, the evidence is clear that Adam has a fabulous instrument and he sure knows how to use it.

  68. But will it be emo or Elvis hair?

    And will the words woman or baby even come up?

    Oh lord! Will there be a mic stand??

  69. Can someone please tell me how Adam is going to be on Ryan’s show at 8:30 if he is going to make the AMA announcement PROMPTLY at 9:30. Adam has to be there and be in place to announce at 9:30, not first be there at 9:30.

    Either they’re going to do a pre-recording or just like on the AI show, they set up a mini studio for his radio show backstage. So he can interviewed people right there and live.

  70. I’m hoping the BIG announcement is going to be that he is performing on the AMA’s. If the BIG announcement is just the drop date of his single, I wll feel duped.

    I’m greedy, sidewalkstory. I want an announcement that he’s performing on the AMAs, the date that his single is dropping, the date that TFM is dropping, the date TFM video is airing, the date he will be hosting AND singing on SNL and a promise that he is personally coming to my house for dinner.

  71. I am going to go on record that Adam will wear the gray suit from ACIGC. There are subtle tie-ins.

    Sniff. I love nostalgia.

  74. I am so parched from the dearth of Adam sightings, interviews, and just real news. Here’s hoping tomorrow will bring some relief. Is there a drizzle in the forecast?

  75. a promise that he is personally coming to my house for dinner.

    ravengirl…I had to laugh so hard, ’cause in the headlines thread there was an announcement from a site that will have a future Adam interview and were asking for questions. And the very first thing that popped into my head was “Ask him what he’d like me to fix when he comes over for dinner”.

It’s probably in a small ball room with some fancy ‘window’  dressing and some AMA insignias and an enlargment of the trophy. The whole thing shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes.

    There are only 8 categories to announce but it should take about 30 minutes with all the stuff they do.

    It’s in one of the Beverly Hills Hotel smaller ballrooms – Sunset Ballroom Capacity 240 IMO it is a the most beautiful ballroon at the BHH and has a panoramic view of the city, and a celestial ceiling.

    Here is the link to the ABC.com media event announcement:

    So, should we take bets on what Adam is wearing. Suit and tie, or leather jacket and t-shirt, or will he be a bit OTT?

    Just a bit OTT. And yes, my guess is leather and chains will be involved.

    LMAO

    I’m a little surprised Perez hasn’t weighed in on the TfM teaser video. He posted an item when the 23 sec. snippet of LLWD was leaked. Heck, he just posted a copy of Archie’s video blog about his Christmas tour. But nothing about this song or the AMA’s ‘ ¦ ??

    hmmm. Are his feelings hurt for some reason? Maybe he’s upset because he didn’t get invited to party with Adam at Teddys ‘ ¦

    Ill bet he knows about it and is just trying to find the full version to leak on his website. I doubt he’s not showing it to spite Adam or because he doesn’t like it or anything like that. I bet he’s just waiting.

  78. there will be a mic stand-it will stay a virgin during the duration of the AMA announcements, I’m afraid !!

  79. Besides, the vast majority of comments that I’ve seen on most sites (AI related or non-AI related) have been positive so I’d expect the same from Perez’s readers.

    Are you kidding? Perez’ readers are brutal for the most part, and they always trash Adam. Mostly for being gay- weird huh? They do the same to Perez. I don’t get it, really.

    Janus- it’s a big pet peeve of mine hearing a snippet before they get to the bridge. The bridge or chorus is what usually makes me decide whether I want to buy a song on the ipod. I think the audio snippet was good, but when I heard and SAW the video, man…. I got chills. Still do.

    Q3 “Just a bit OTT. And yes, my guess is leather and chains will be involved.”

    I’m calling a nice reserved suit! With emo hair.

  80. Im gonna guess one of his suits and a swanky tie and rings and emo hair or a tshirt and leather jacket (or vest) and jeans with emo hair.
    Basically emo hair and accesories and some sort of clothes. And yes that narrowed it down a lot thanks for pointing that out XD

  81. a promise that he is personally coming to my house for dinner.

    ‘cuse me? who’s the cook around here?

    (personal twitter joke)

  82. Seems like tomorrow has the potential to be a big day of all things Adam in the news…VERY Excited!

  83. I’m a little surprised Perez hasn’t weighed in on the TfM teaser video. He posted an item when the 23 sec. snippet of LLWD was leaked. Heck, he just posted a copy of Archie’s video blog about his Christmas tour. But nothing about this song or the AMA’s ‘ ¦ ??

    I’d rather that he post nothing instead of posting or tweeting the “it sucks” comments like he did for the guy that won-to millions of followers.

  84. Heh’ ¦this is 3 people standing at a podium reading off a list of names.

    You are assuming that Pauler will be able to stand at 9:30 in the morning. I’d say that’s a 50/50 bet at best.

  85. Are you kidding? Perez’ readers are brutal for the most part, and they always trash Adam. Mostly for being gay- weird huh? They do the same to Perez. I don’t get it, really.

    The only article I’ve ever seen them NOT trash Adam on is the yt vid of him kicking the dildo. Ya Idgi also :/

    LMAO! good one. This will keep me smiling on the drive home. Thanks!

  87. As long as it is not the YHA eddie munster hair, I will be happy. I love all hairstyles and clothes. Except that one. You know, the cringworthy one that pops up every once in a while in news ezines.

  88. alaadam— I will go with Elvis hair, I think he wore it back recently when he did a quick Donorschoose.org statement with the facial hair present…hot look for him. About the mic stand……..let’s just say that from now on all mic stands should feel very lucky to be anywhere near his beautiful…ummmmm…. ahhhh…. new leather pants, yeah that’s it.

  89. Seems like tomorrow has the potential to be a big day of all things Adam in the news’ ¦VERY Excited!

    Ya i know :/
    and its the day I have the least time to flail around on the interwebs. DARN :C

    As long as it is not the YHA eddie munster hair, I will be happy. I love all hairstyles and clothes. Except that one. You know, the cringworthy one that pops up every once in a while in news ezines.

    I hope he put the blue and green back in his hair and maybe changed it up a little bit. Ya know since he has a lot of press coming up (we think, hope). I like his hair now and all but it’s weird for him not to change it up, it’s been awhile /selfish

  90. You can listen to the Seacrest show live on the internet. Just search for KISS-FM Los Angeles. There’s a link to listen live. They will post audio of the interview on the KISS website later in the day.

  91. there will be a mic stand-it will stay a virgin during the duration of the AMA announcements, I’m afraid !!

    Dang! I say he should just push Pauler and SNoop Dog out of the way, throw off the jacket, and “Let’s Dance”!

    I am going to go on record that Adam will wear the gray suit from ACIGC.

    I could totally picture that! He rocked that suit ‘“ twice!

    Loved that suit! With that great tie and the cufflinks Hot!

  93. So, should we take bets on what Adam is wearing. Suit and tie, or leather jacket and t-shirt, or will he be a bit OTT?

    I think it’s going to be a fancy/glam suit but no tie… tie and tux are for AMA’s red carpet… :grin:

  94. I am going to go on record that Adam will wear the gray suit from ACIGC.

    It would have had to be taken in. Adam lost about 20 lbs since that suit.

  95. Let’s not forget about the white suit. We did not have a repeat of that one yet… so…

  96. thinking the stripes slowride pants …j/k I think those are officially retired

  97. Wouldn’t be awesome is he looked like the Tracks of My Tears performance. That look was awesome.

    Do believe it will be a suit, or even a vest set like GMA and Ford Day. Hip, but more conservative

  98. Let’s not forget about the white suit. We did not have a repeat of that one yet’ ¦ so’ ¦

    I have a feeling that since we haven’t seen that outfit since, that it was a rental. I mean it WAS $2000.

  99. LindaG23: I am going to go on record that Adam will wear the gray suit from ACIGC. There are subtle tie-ins.

    Love the idea. It would need to be seriously altered because Adam has lost so much weight since then. And it’s a great suit but he already wore it twice — for ToMT and a little tight for ACIGC. I expect something new.

    I think he will be styled to fit his recording artist role vs. one of his more conservative looks. I expecting something more fashion forward — like in the Sebree PR photos — but suitable for a press event. He nailed the look for his GMA appearance. He’ll get it right here, too, and include something that is subtle but pushed the boundaries.

  100. Are you kidding? Perez’ readers are brutal for the most part, and they always trash Adam. Mostly for being gay- weird huh? They do the same to Perez. I don’t get it, really.

    Nope. I’m not kidding. And if you look at the Adam items, he always gets a ton of comments, usually over 100. And out of those 100 comments, 20 are disgusting and rude but the other 80 are some version of – the guy can sang and he’s totally hot.

    It’s a rough crowd over there but Adam holds his own. Those guys trash everyone … Lady Gaga, you name it. It’s what they do.

  101. I like the blue/green in his hair too boredinschool. This is announcement to media/press right, so media is there and probably photogs? He will go a little OTT with his hair (maybe wild emo?) and probably a jacket, skinny tie, black pants (skinny leg) and those fab Italian cut black boots.

  102. Janus- it’s a big pet peeve of mine hearing a snippet before they get to the bridge. The bridge or chorus is what usually makes me decide whether I want to buy a song on the ipod. I think the audio snippet was good, but when I heard and SAW the video, man’ ¦. I got chills. Still do.

    Ok, I’ll admit it. When I heard the first snippet, I thought it yes that’s nice, etc. etc. But yeah, the video? Well, let’s just say I had to brush a little glitter from my eye.

  103. I think he will be styled to fit his recording artist role vs. one of his more conservative looks. I expecting something more fashion forward ‘” like in the Sebree PR photos ‘” but suitable for a press event. He nailed the look for his GMA appearance. He’ll get it right here, too, and include something that is subtle but pushed the boundaries.

    That sounds good Q3. Maybe that new blazer he got?

    OT but any info on when/where the 2012 premiere is?

  104. boredinschool

    Let’s not forget about the white suit. We did not have a repeat of that one yet’ ¦ so’ ¦

    I have a feeling that since we haven’t seen that outfit since, that it was a rental. I mean it WAS $2000.

    It will not be the white suit! Miles Siggens said in an interview that Adam bought that suit. So it is probably in his closet.

  105. thinking the stripes slowride pants

    oh, no! Do not even go there! Too many memories….too much fun…

  106. It will not be the white suit! Miles Siggens said in an interview that Adam bought that suit. So it is probably in his closet.

    But we know how Adam likes to “recycle” his clothing, wearing outfits more than once and then in different combinations. That suit will reappear some day.

  107. It will not be the white suit! Miles Siggens said in an interview that Adam bought that suit. So it is probably in his closet.

    Oh i remember that now XD
    So maybe he’ll use it for the 2012 premiere or something? It’s too fancy to keep locked up XD

    The Reuters press release to accompany my already posted PRNewswire release from the other thread:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGWPuXxPXpI

    Love these formal releases, they are so imaginative(Not)

    Did you mean to post the TFM video from aol? haha…

  108. Ravengirl – had a dream that Adam did come to my house for dinner. I don’t usually remember my dreams, but that one…..VIVID!

  109. From another board, who compiled these tweets:

    Eep….Sadao Turner confirming there will be big news

    SadaoTurner @AINow Yes, big announcement. Nothing’s safe to assume…muhahaha…

    The above was in reply to this tweet from AInews:

    @SadaoTurner Thanks Sadao. And he’ll have a “big announcement”? Same to assume it’s about his single?
    8 minutes ago from yoono

    @SadaoTurner Can you confirm @adamlambert will be on air with @ryanseacrest tomorrow?

  110. Ahhh omg, look at this tweet from OfficialAMAs:

    @Mellynnette there will be coverage in the afternoon by all the major media outlets. Look 4 a big announcement regarding Adam

    http://twitter.com/OfficialAMAs

    Now I definitely think his announcement is AMA related!!!!!!!!

  111. Dallas: I like the blue/green in his hair too boredinschool. This is announcement to media/press right, so media is there and probably photogs? He will go a little OTT with his hair (maybe wild emo?) and probably a jacket, skinny tie, black pants (skinny leg) and those fab Italian cut black boots.

    Sound pretty good. I say Skingraft leather jacket, no tie, black pants, those fab Italian cut black boots, some great jewelry and 1 leather rock accessory — not a glove, maybe a cuff.

    And with those boots, he’ll be 6’4″, Snoop Dogg is 6’4″ (in shoes) and Paula will be 5’3″ LOL!

  112. White Dolce & Gabanna suit would need to be tailored now. IMO, and I used to sell high end men’s clothes at one time, the Dolce & Gabanna suit made him larger than he was-the jacket was not tailored well to his weight for the time.

    However, on a more shallow note, the white pants made his thighs look scrumptious!

  113. Ahhh omg, look at this tweet from OfficialAMAs:

    @Mellynnette there will be coverage in the afternoon by all the major media outlets. Look 4 a big announcement regarding Adam

    I have a feeling the ‘big’ announcement is TFM being out in full on friday *rolls eyes*
    what THEY think is big news might not be big news to us idoloonies (TM slezak). Or it actually IS big news. IDK not getting my hopes up.

  114. I have a feeling that since we haven’t seen that outfit since, that it was a rental. I mean it WAS $2000.

    $1800. was confirmed by Miles Sliggins

  115. I’m greedy, sidewalkstory. I want an announcement that he’s performing on the AMAs, the date that his single is dropping, the date that TFM is dropping, the date TFM video is airing, the date he will be hosting AND singing on SNL and a promise that he is personally coming to my house for dinner.

    LOL! Way to throw it out there into the universe, Ravengirl!! You got to say what you want ‘“ and I for one say, “Um, ditto, universe ‘“ thanks!”

    Flove the gray suit and he did look stunning in it. Didn’t he or someone say the white suit was actually a tuxedo? Can’t imagine he’d wear that, especially in the morning.

    I’m inclined to agree with Q3, he’s going to rock a professional look with an edge to plant the seed of having him to do hosting/announcing gigs in the future (please, and thank you again).

  116. Look 4 a big announcement regarding Adam

    OK…let’s see…Adam is getting a Nobel Prize for “Voice”

  117. LOL I cant believe Im discussing what Adams gonna wear AND reviewing for my geography test at the SAME time. With my luck, on the test tomorrow, Ill start writing about white D and G suits instead of BIF’s (Banded Iron Formations).
    But for the record I agree with Q3. And LOL Paula will look TINY. Maybe they’ll get her a little pedestal :).

    $1800. was confirmed by Miles Sliggins

    Ah. I didn’t know that thank you :)

  118. That was confirmed to have been bought by Adam out of pocket.

    Boy, are the Reuters and PRNewswire press releases dry, but are necessary to begin formal promotion.

    I heard that camera crews have been prepared for Adam to go to MTV(probably Jim) and Laura from DIsh of Salt

  119. I still think the “big news” will simply be the announcement of when his single will drop. Which would be nice, but not exactly monumental in the way of news.

  120. I have a feeling the ‘big’ announcement is TFM being out in full on friday *rolls eyes*
    what THEY think is big news might not be big news to us idoloonies (TM slezak). Or it actually IS big news. IDK not getting my hopes up.

    Nah, I don’t think the AMAs official twitter would be hinting at an announcement about Adam and “Time For Miracles.” The AMAs and TFM don’t have any association with each other. This is the tweet that was being replied to, fwiw.

    Mellynnette: @OfficialAMAs SO happy that Adam was chosen to help present noms! PLEASE say there will be some video coverage, even if it’s not live? #ama

  121. @Mellynnette there will be coverage in the afternoon by all the major media outlets. Look 4 a big announcement regarding Adam

    Now I definitely think his announcement is AMA related!!!!!!!!

    I think he’s going to announce the title of his single and when we can hear it.. etc.. etc.. maybe SNL appearance

  122. But will it be emo or Elvis hair?

    And will the words woman or baby even come up?

    and will someone throw a bra at him?

    plus someone’s bound to count and time how many nominations he gets to read out compared to Paula and Snoop

  123. So long as he doesn’t wear that ridiculous outfit nor have the same hairstyle from the YHA’s, I’ll be a happy camper. :)

  124. OK’ ¦let’s see’ ¦Adam is getting a Nobel Prize for ‘Voice’ 

    Maybe he will tweet “humbled” or maybe “humlbed.” (JK – Adam is my Idol all the way!)

  125. I think he’s going to announce the title of his single and when we can hear it.. etc.. etc.. maybe SNL appearance

    But why would the AMAs be tweeting about that?

  126. So long as he doesn’t wear that ridiculous outfit nor have the same hairstyle from the YHA’s, I’ll be a happy camper.

    Or hold his lapels.

  127. @advern,

    OK’ ¦let’s see’ ¦Adam is getting a Nobel Prize for ‘Voice’ 

    LOL!! It works for me.

  128. I think the big announcement is that Lambert has signed to be the opening act on the David Archuleta Christmas Tour. It’s gonna be swell!

  129. That was confirmed to have been bought by Adam out of pocket.

    Boy, are the Reuters and PRNewswire press releases dry, but are necessary to begin formal promotion.

    I heard that camera crews have been prepared for Adam to go to MTV(probably Jim) and Laura from DIsh of Salt

    It was? Okay nevermind then. I wasn’t following the blogs till AFTER top 5 so I missed all that info.

    Nah, I don’t think the AMAs official twitter would be hinting at an announcement about Adam and ‘Time For Miracles.’  The AMAs and TFM don’t have any association with each other. This is the tweet that was being replied to, fwiw.

    I know I know but to everyone out of the Idol bubble that would be ‘news’. But Id like you to be right :D
    ETA: rereading the tweet, I see where you’re coming from. *crosses fingers*
    ETA2:

    plus someone’s bound to count and time how many nominations he gets to read out compared to Paula and Snoop

    OMG ADAM GOT HALF A SECOND LESS THAN PAULER
    they must all be plotting against him, those AMA scumbags.

    @Mellynnette there will be coverage in the afternoon by all the major media outlets. Look 4 a big announcement regarding Adam

    Now I definitely think his announcement is AMA related!!!!!!!!

    Whoa, he has to be performing or presenting if it’s AMA related. Maybe he will be doing a tribute to the entertainers lost this year?

    ETA: OR he and Snoop Dogg will be performing together??? Stranger things have happened.

  131. “what THEY think is big news might not be big news to us idoloonies (TM slezak).what THEY think is big news might not be big news to us idoloonies (TM slezak).”

    Yea ITA. Maybe they have at least decided on the single. (hoping, and insert puppy dog eyes here)

  132. Would AMA drop this “big announcement” over something other than AMA related news? Why would they promo something to do with his album or TfM. Seems more likely he was tagged to be a presenter or maybe a performer at the awards show. No? Yes?

  133. Ahhh omg, look at this tweet from OfficialAMAs:

    @Mellynnette there will be coverage in the afternoon by all the major media outlets. Look 4 a big announcement regarding Adam

    There is a Adam Lambert press event at the Beverly Hills Hotel. It has something to do with the AMA’s but it is not the nomination list. All I can find out is that it is a “big announcement”.

    I haven’t got any idea what it is but it is NOT the release date for his single. Sorry, we might think it is big but that wouldn’t cause this kind of buzz. I thought it was just bogus rumor buzz but that tweet makes it seem like something is really going on.

    Weather forecast: ADAMSTORM AHEAD!!

  134. they are bringing all press there, it has to be performing on the AMA’s announcement

    (or maybe that he is suspect zero on Flash Forward, oh maybe not that)

  135. There is a Adam Lambert press event at the Beverly Hills Hotel. It has something to do with the AMA’s but it is not the nomination list. All I can find out is that it is a ‘big announcement’ .

    Makeup line maybe? SNL gig? IDK but im excited 8D

  136. I heard that camera crews have been prepared for Adam to go to MTV(probably Jim) and Laura from DIsh of Salt

    It’s not Jim C. tomorrow for the AMA’s. He’s based in NY. He tweeted this today:

    I very rarely wish I lived in LA. But considering an MTV crew is covering the AMA noms w/ @adamlambert, tomorrow is 1 of those days. #NYFail
    about 3 hours ago from web

  137. Ahhh omg, look at this tweet from OfficialAMAs:

    Is it tomorrow yet? I have a feeling we won’t be complaining about lack of Adam news after tomorrow!!

  138. I’ve got it. He and Lady Gaga are going to perform together at the awards show.

    Or…co-host the show (see Q3 below and add LGaga)

  139. OK, this is just a ridiculous guess but —

    There is no announced host for the AMA’s. For at least the past two years the host of the AMA’s was at the nomination announcement. Maybe Adam is hosting the AMA’s.

    I know it is ridiculous but since Neil Patrick Harris made the ratings for the Emmys and Tonys go up so much — maybe they wanted a gay host for the AMA’s too.

  140. I’ve been in this hole so long. I just can’t imagine what kind of big news is going to be broadcast by all major media outlets. At least it is tomorrow and not some nebulous date in the future.

  141. And with those boots, he’ll be 6′ ²4′ ³, Snoop Dogg is 6′ ²4′ ³ (in shoes) and Paula will be 5′ ²3′ ³ LOL!

    Ha! I didn’t even think about how teensy Paula would look standing next to those two. I’m even shorter than she is, so I can’t differentiate between 6’2″ or 6’4″ or whatever. To me, all those guys over 6’1″ are just “pretty effin tall”.

    ETA: OR he and Snoop Dogg will be performing together??? Stranger things have happened.

    For me, this wouldn’t be so much strange, as it would be totally freaking awesome! (I’m okay with being in the minority on that one. I just think Snoop does a fabulous job when he’s performing with someone completely unexpected, outside of the rap world. And, adding Adam’s talent to that, I would have to guess only goodness could follow.)

  142. There is no announced host for the AMA’s. For at least the past two years the host of the AMA’s was at the nomination announcement. Maybe Adam is hosting the AMA’s.

    I thought I read Jimmy Kimmel is hosting. He has for the last few years.

  143. I know it is ridiculous but since Neil Patrick Harris made the ratings for the Emmys and Tonys go up so much ‘” maybe they wanted a gay host for the AMA’s too.

    I hope not. Adam hosting the AMAs is a big risk to take at this stage in his career. Remember, no filter, who knows what will fly out of his mouth.

  144. There is no announced host for the AMA’s. For at least the past two years the host of the AMA’s was at the nomination announcement. Maybe Adam is hosting the AMA’s.

    That is my guess! Especially since the AMA is twitting the press conference for Adam directly!

  145. Hmm Adam hosting the AMAs. Letting that sink in. Bingo.
    That sounds very likely. I’ll take it.

  146. ETA: OR he and Snoop Dogg will be performing together??? Stranger things have happened.

    For me, this wouldn’t be so much strange, as it would be totally freaking awesome! (I’m okay with being in the minority on that one. I just think Snoop does a fabulous job when he’s performing with someone completely unexpected, outside of the rap world. And, adding Adam’s talent to that, I would have to guess only goodness could follow.)

    I would love it, but rap is so anti-gay sometimes…. even with that said I can see a few rappers wanting Adam to sing some hooks for them. Rap is trying to blend with Rock lately.

  147. Is it tomorrow yet? I have a feeling we won’t be complaining about lack of Adam news after tomorrow!!

    Yes, our heads will be spinning. We must resist the urge to head to the cellar to avoid the onslaught. The storm is imminent.

  148. There is no announced host for the AMA’s. For at least the past two years the host of the AMA’s was at the nomination announcement. Maybe Adam is hosting the AMA’s.

    That would be freaking amazing, but I really have a hard time believing that will happen ‘“ I mean, he hasn’t proven himself as a host except being awesome in interviews and totally at ease in front of the camera and kicking ass on “Best Week Ever.”

    I could have swore I read Jimmy Kimmel was doing it again this year, but you’re right, Q3, as usual ‘“ all the old releases were for 2008 and the host wasn’t announced until early/mid October. It looks like the host announcement was made at the time of the nominations.

    It does sound like it’s something big!! (squee!!)

  149. Dallas

    I’ve got it. He and Lady Gaga are going to perform together at the awards show.

    Or’ ¦co-host the show (see Q3 below and add LGaga)
    Q3
    OK, this is just a ridiculous guess but ‘“

    There is no announced host for the AMA’s. For at least the past two years the host of the AMA’s was at the nomination announcement. Maybe Adam is hosting the AMA’s.

    I know it is ridiculous but since Neil Patrick Harris made the ratings for the Emmys and Tonys go up so much ‘” maybe they wanted a gay host for the AMA’s too.

    :):):):):):):):):):):)
    THAT WOULD BE FREAKING AWESOME (are they broadcast in canada)
    But I dont think he’d cohost with Lady Gaga, It wouldn’t work with her mystique IMO. But I’d LOVE for them to perform together. WOULD LOVE LOVE LOVE them to.
    AHH now im excited :DD
    ETA: nevermind Kimmel is….or is he? (I lost the link XD)

  150. If in our wildest dreams it was Adam hosting the AMAs wouldn’t there be a bit of back lash towards him from the establishment in the industry. I mean, really, he hasn’t recorded had any original music released yet and for all intents and purposes he is a total unproven newbie who came in second on a reality show. This would be all kinds of OTT and weird.

  151. Adam is probably presenting at the AMA’s as well as performing. I doubt he will be hosting.

    He may also announce SNL gig… squee!

    Adam and Lady Gaga performing together would be fn EPIC!!!!

  152. I am soooo excited for Adam. The Adam Storm is DEFINITELY starting tomorrow!

    I think the news will be AMA related. I bet he wears something we haven’t seen before, a little edgy, and has emo hair. So long as he doen’t have the YHA’s look…whatever he wears I’ll be happy.

    Maybe we will find out when his single is dropping?!

  153. Okay Kimmel is hosting, any other suggestions for Adam?

    Maybe Adam could sing with Pink, she is scheduled to appear.

  154. I don’t think he’s hosting, I really don’t. He’s not anywhere near that level yet. I can’t think what it can be, because if he was performing, why a separate announcement/event?

  155. ETD: Old Kimmel release.

    I don’t know why they wouldn’t have Kimmel do it again this year ‘“ he’s been at like what? Five years in a row and seems to be doing well. I’m thinking it’s more than a performance announcement ‘“ but not quite THAT big. So exciting!!!

  156. I don’t know, I don’t think Hollywood thinks of him as a Newbie. He’s a local homie. He has a lot of cred with biggies in the music industry..
    Do you all think he would make a good host?

  157. yes, CindyM color me (red faced.) I deleted because of course I didn’t check the date until I had already posted… seriously sloppy reporting I know.

  158. Wow, never though t of that! AMA hosting gig announcement would be big enough news for all media outlets outlets to cover, or maybe Lady Gaga joint appearance & tour announcement (hope not though)

  159. I love how the thread explodes and the lurkers de-cloak on an Adam thread. Thanks MJ.

    No Adam hosting. It’s too early. He’s not ready for that and neither are we.

  160. I think he will be presenting and/or performing and the reason I am throwing Gaga in there is all the buzz around LA regarding Adam and Gaga as per someone (Q3?) so maybe they are going to perform together and blow the place up.

  161. What about Adam/Lady Gaga/Pink?
    IDK I would flove him to perform with either of them. What about Katy Perry? Will she be there? *goes to see if they’re shown in Canada*
    ETA: I can’t find if they are or not *crosses fingers*
    ETA2: As much as it would be awesome I agree with Readon. He’s not ready, and I wouldnt want him to accidentally say something and get himself into heaps of trouble.

  162. Adam and Lady Gaga performing together would be fn EPIC!!!!
    ======
    yes it would. I hope the big announcement is a performance-it doesnt even have to be with anyone or even presenting. I will be disappointed if the “big” news is just to release a date for a single or something.

  163. If it’s AMA-related, is there even the remotest possibility that one of his songs recorded for Idol might have been nominated for something…? If so, perhaps it’s that, plus perfoming, plus presenting? (Or I’d settle for the latter two).

    Unless it’s something totally new we’ve had no clues about, I would wager it’s the official unveiling of TfM, or at least the video, since Amazon’s not quite ready to sell the song till later in the week. It’s not big news to us, but remember, the outside world may not necessarily know yet, just as they don’t officially know the CD is available for pre-sale and Rod is riding high in the saddle again.

  164. No Adam hosting. It’s too early. He’s not ready for that and neither are we.

    Adam hosting makes me nervous and I don’t know why.

  165. Adam storm definitely coming! I can feel it!!

    I’m more excited to hear Adam on Ryan’s show and find out what news he has for us. I’ve seen these nomination announcement shows and most of them have been a bit awkward without an audience present. The presenters just read off the nominations and try their best to convey enthusiasm. If anyone can make it fun, it’s Adam — he is so off-the-cuff articulate and funny, so there’s some hope.

  166. Adam is probably presenting at the AMA’s as well as performing. I doubt he will be hosting.

    He may also announce SNL gig’ ¦ squee!

    YES.. YES.. YES..

  167. Adam hosting makes me nervous and I don’t know why.

    Me too. Hosting these gigs is actually much more difficult than it looks.

  168. Adam hosting makes me nervous and I don’t know why.

    Me too. Hosting these gigs is actually much more difficult than it looks.

    A lot of rehearsal time would be involved and how would he have the time considering he is going to be preparing for promotions for the CD? If it’s a performance announcement, I want him performing ALONE! His first performance on a major awards show should not be with anyone else!!

  169. Maybe Adam is going to perform Black or White as a Michael Jackson tribute. All these music shows seem to be doing something like this.

    Perhaps Paula made the recommendation for him.

  170. Adam hosting makes me nervous and I don’t know why.

    I think it’s the unfiltered Adam that makes one nervous. One cannot forget the GMA remarks about bras and family shows. Nor can one forget touchy feely fans who are also sweaty and smelly.

  171. Hosting would be too much, but could be performing, SNL, performing/touring with Gaga or all of the above….

  172. I think it’s the unfiltered Adam that makes one nervous. One cannot forget the GMA remarks about bras and family shows. Nor can one forget touchy feely fans who are also sweaty and smelly.

    LOL Good Times Good Times… :-)

  173. Since both David Cook and Archie presented last year I don’t think that will be the big announcement. I expect to see Kris and Adam presenting. (remember Archie last year with the girl who is 6’2 or something with these 5″ heels…too funny and Kimmel making a big deal that it was past Archie’s bed time or something like that).

  174. (Thank you CindyM.)

    OK, using logical thinking, would it be appropriate to announce Adam/Gaga performing together at the AMA awards then transition that announcement to an announcement by Adam that he is joining Gaga for tour next year?

    (I know, this is all soooo speculative and OTT, but what else can we do to keep from spiraling into total hysteria pass the time until tomorrow.)

  175. I’m inclined to think it’s either TfM or something entirely new and BIG, as an SNL gig is not worthy of a press conference, even if the press are already gathered. A tour MIGHT be, but I can’t see him being ready for that this early in the game, and it would be way premature to make those kinds of commitments when he has no live act in place yet.

    To me, TfM is the only thing with wide enough mass appeal that it would be worth all this presumed hoopla (worth it to anyone other than US, I mean) – assuming it’s not AMA-related, that is.

  176. I know it is ridiculous but since Neil Patrick Harris made the ratings for the Emmys and Tonys go up so much ‘” maybe they wanted a gay host for the AMA’s too.

    I think the ratings boosts have less to do with NPH being gay, and more to do with his being legen…………..dary LOL.

    Rap is trying to blend with Rock lately.

    For me, it’s always been a great combo. From the moment that a little Run DMC / Aerosmith collaboration took rap mainstream and changed the course of late 20th century music :)

  177. Just a question does it have to be about Adam.. maybe he is announcing something entirely different?

  178. Adam and Lady Gaga performing together would be fn EPIC!!!!

    Yeah! A duet. That would be swell!

    My guess is that Lambert will debut his first single live on the AMA award telecast. When is this shindig? A week or so before the album drops?

  179. What can be considered as big announcement?

    Adam (only) is performing with Queen on AMA?

  180. Maybe the performing of TFM on AMA’s Maybe Ryan will play the full premiere version of TFM on his radio show tomorrow!

    We really flailing here, aren’t we!!

    The suspense is going to kill us til tomorrow!!

    BTW, my local Top 40 station in CT spoke about Adam today, saying to their fans to watch out, he is a superstar in the making! So cool to hear today!

  181. For me, it’s always been a great combo. From the moment that a little Run DMC / Aerosmith collaboration took rap mainstream and changed the course of late 20th century music

    Oh puhleeze dont’t let it be a Adam, Snoop Dog collaboration. This would be Taylor deja vu all over again.

  182. I would bet my money on that they have asked Adam to perform at the AMA Awards Ceremony. I’m sure Adam would be in his glory to receive such an accolade!

  183. What can be considered as big announcement?

    Adam (only) is performing with Queen on AMA?

    I thought of that too.

    ETA: When is the AMAs again? Isn’t Freddy Mercury’s birthday or anniversary of his death coming up?

  184. Actually I think hosting is not even close. For one thing, it is hard to keep audiences entertained and they usually use the Billy Crystal (Jimmy Kimmel) types who are known for being funny. These award shows can be so boring and they look for comedic relief (Whoopie, Ellen) and I for one do not want to see Adam trying to fit this bill.

    But it would not surprise me for the AMA peeps to jump on any bandwagon that might cause buzz and thereby up the viewership, i.e. some outlandish announcement that will go viral on the internet.

    Queen works for me. I would love that (more than Gaga.)

  185. Try this. Adam is annoucing the host of the AMAs and it isn’t Adam.

  186. What can be considered as big announcement?

    Adam (only) is performing with Queen on AMA?

    I approve of this statement.

  187. I’m so excited! I don’t think I’ll be able to go to sleep. How long til tomorrow??

  188. Freddie Mercury Tribute with Queen

    Or Michael Jackson tribute song-

  189. Seems like tomorrow has the potential to be a big day of all things Adam in the news’ ¦VERY Excited!

    I HATE THIS!!! TOMMOROW WILL BE EPIC AND ILL BE STUCK AT SCHOOL!!!!!!! I AM LIKE DYING INSIDE DX

    i'll try to say I'm sick and skip buy my mom's a doctor…;(

    THIS SUCKS MAJORLY!!!!

    eta-Adam WILL look amazing…

    but I'm going to miss it ;(

  190. MJ tribute sounds like it could work.
    Im guessing it’ll either be something to do with a future tour (pipe dream) or performing on the AMAs
    aaaaand now I gtg ttyl!

  191. OOOOHHHhhhhhhh…

    Gee,,,I’ve never flailed before but I might be willing to learn how. Are there any instructions for flailing?

  192. They have updated his official site with both the Press Release and video of 2012 clip

    So full on Press Blitz has begun!!!!

    So excited, tomorrow is such a long time away-

  193. Agree Tess…. this is FUN.. but at the same time I think I won’t be able to sleep tonight… I really want to see & hear the performance of Adam & Queen…..

  194. Or Michael Jackson tribute song-

    I just said that!!!!!!! yikes, don’t people even read one page back?

  195. star: I thought I read Jimmy Kimmel is hosting. He has for the last few years.

    As of now there is no host listed for 2009. Not in the press kit, not in the press releases, not one the event site for tickets and not ABC.com

    Here is link to show site:
    http://abc.go.com/shows/american-music-awards/about-the-show#

    And yes, it’s probably Jimmy Kimmel for the 6th time — but I can’t find that announced anywhere.

    And if Adam is performing at the AMA’s — would they call that a big announcement? What about all the other performers?

    I think the Adam with Queen idea is a better guess and that could be pressworthy. But if Adam did get that gig, he would be brilliant. His “no filter” seems to be mostly an act — and very well planned most of the time.

  196. I am working tomorrow and I am counting on you guys to keep this site updated with all THE FLAILING NEWS so i can sneek a peek while working….and who is at the AMA NOMINATIONS?

  197. how..about…adam is really straight??!!! no,I didn’t think so either

    Adam WILL look amazing

    Seems like tomorrow has the potential to be a big day of all things Adam in the news’ ¦VERY Excited!

    I’ll try to fake sick but my mom’s a doctor so it probably won’t work…

    I’M SO DISAAPOINTED RIGHT NOW!!!!

  198. Or Michael Jackson tribute song-

    If so, I hope that Adam has nothing to do with it.

    Watch it be something boring — like the last big announcement that ONTD_AI won the DonorsChoose contest.

    I will maintain my sanity until tomorrow.

  200. Love the idolforums pic…Adam looks good in pink and would be a gorgeous woman!!!!

  201. I think you guys are overthinking it. If Adam’s going to perform on the AMAs, he’ll perform his own single. IMO Adam peforming on the AMAs *is* a big announcement. A) He’d be the first performer announced for this year and B) performing on the AMAs is a big deal, period. It’s great publicity and exposure for any artist.

    It also wouldn’t surprise me if the announcement is about him doing a pre-show concert like David Cook did last year.

  202. You guys are completely insane and I love you. I guess I get to add “hosting the AMAs before he even has one hit single” to my list of OTT Adam predictions.

  203. It also wouldn’t surprise me if the announcement is about him doing a pre-show concert like David Cook did last year

    That may be it…..I think we are all getting carried away…can u imagine if Adam would come to this site and see that we are even trying to figure out what he is wearing tomorrow HHA

    That’s possible.

  208. i hope it is nothing to do with michael jackson…hope it somethings about HIM

  209. They will announce that all new media and bloggers will have to pay for the use of Adam’s name or likeness.

  210. I’m reading this AMA gal’s twitter again…

    @Mellynnette there will be coverage in the afternoon by all the major media outlets. Look 4 a big announcement regarding Adam

    This sounds like something else in the afternoon and it sounds like they are making an announcement about Adam.

    So I am confused. We have Adam with Ryan in the a.m., Adam reading nominations in the a.m., then another announcement in the p.m.? omg, my brain has exploded. Help.

  211. De-lurking with excitement!! I think he’ll appear with Queen, singing TFM. That would be epic!!!

    That it would be…with a full orchestra…!

  212. It could be news we don’t want to hear like album release date pushed back to December? He just finished a track the other day with a producer. It’s already October 12! *edited put wrong date

  213. They will announce that all new media and bloggers will have to pay for the use of Adam’s name or likeness

    There goes my avatar…and NO pushing back date of release

    I feel like I’m playing Clue and the next thing I type will be: Adam Lambert in the Beverly Hills Hotel with a quivering mikestand.

  218. It could be news we don’t want to hear like album release date pushed back to December?

    We’re getting REAL news tomorrow. I KNOW it. And I? Will be conserving laptop battery power and hoping I won’t get picked.

    Dang, MamaDeb, Uncle Sam has such bad timing. Here’s to “I’m related to someone in law inforcement.”

  221. Oh puhleeze dont’t let it be a Adam, Snoop Dog collaboration. This would be Taylor deja vu all over again.

    Oh, LOL, I didn’t even remember that – and I was a Taylor fan!

    It could be news we don’t want to hear like album release date pushed back to December? He just finished a track the other day with a producer. It’s already November 12!

    I’m fairly certain today is October 12th :) I would not suspect any delay news at all. In fact, isn’t the “news” tweeter directly affiliated with the AMA’s? That leads me to believe that the Adam news is AMA related. So, I would suspect performance news. I’m not sure presenting news would be all that major.

    That’s just my guess. And, I’m not nearly in the know as most of you. So, I’m probably wrong.

  222. I feel like I’m playing Clue and the next thing I type will be: Adam Lambert in the Beverly Hills Hotel with a quivering mikestand.

    LOL!!!!!

  223. *still hasnt left* im bad at this leaving the computer business XD

    lol me too I’ve been sitting in front of the computer staring at a blank word document for the last hour…:/

  224. @Mellynnette there will be coverage in the afternoon by all the major media outlets. Look 4 a big announcement regarding Adam

    Personally, I don’t take this to mean there will be another announcement in the afternoon. I just thought it meant that coverage of the AMA nominations being read by Adam, Paula, and Snoop will start popping up in the news in the afternoon. Again, this is the tweet that was being responded to:

    @OfficialAMAs SO happy that Adam was chosen to help present noms! PLEASE say there will be some video coverage, even if it’s not live? #ama

    So basically OfficialAMAs was just answering her question about when she could expect to see coverage.

  225. maybe he is performing but it’s no just ANY performance, he is going to do a review of American Music… since we know he can sing nearly any style he could do an awesome medley of iconic songs… maybe to open the show? //end dream scenario.

    i think the hosting gig is way too far of a reach, but i think announcing that he is joining lady gaga’s tour would be something that would bring all the news outlets to a press event… and ties in with nymichael’s “follow gaga’s news” tip.

  226. It could be news we don’t want to hear like album release date pushed back to December?

    rockvixen just teed in my sandbox.

    Keep em coming. Oh you naughty girl.

  227. Sneaking out of lurkdom,to say I love this thread,you guys are cracking me up ! The excitement Adam creates is amazing,he’s bringing the fun back to the music world,I couldn’t be happier.Carry on,I’m going back to lurkdom ! Just had to add my two cents !

  228. Adam performing with Queen, a Michael Jackson tribute, or………….

    “a performance with Bowie“!! (A girl can dream)

    I really do think he’s going to perform at the AMA’s. I can’t believe I’ll be away from this thread when all the excitment is happening tomorrow! Boy! I’m going to have sooo much ‘catch up’ when I get back here!

  229. hey bored, before you go SueBrody is our resident super tweeter so you can probably follow her tomorrow. Or, maybe even MJ. I do not do the tweet thing but I think MJ has a twitter going on also.

  230. The AMA tweet about a big announcement regarding Adam, was a tweet in response to a question about Adam. It makes sense for the tweeter to respond about Adam, but I think it’s more likely the afternoon event is designed to provide more information about the show… and the Adam news is only a part of that news.

    I hope it’s that he’s performing on the show, but I don’t want to get my hopes up about a Queen collaboratin or an MJ tribute.

    I totally believe there will be some Adam “announcement” however I also think those folks tweeting about such things sometimes tend to exaggerate.

    I’d guess it will be more than a presenting gig, and less than a Freddie or MJ tribute.

    Either way it sounds like we will have a bonanza of Adam news tomorrow. (Outfit, hair, upcoming gigs, etc. — it’s all good!)

  231. LOL I think this is starting to get a little carried away. We’ve got to remember that what we can dream up in our fevered imaginations as “big” is probably way cooler than anything they’re announcing with typical media puffing as to it’s importance.

    I could buy him performing, maybe even at the ceremony instead of the pre-show, because weren’t we talking the other day about how it was really too soon for him to be asked to do that without any music out?

    ETA: But it could totally be something like presenting with someone cool, and not even performing at all. It would still be an honor.

  232. Has MJ chimed in on what she thinks the news could be? She usually keeps things grounded even if they leave me with a “thud” sometimes.

  233. Actually an inside source told me that not only is Adam hostingbut he is also getting an award for Favorite Artist of 2009. However when he receives the awards he’s pulling a Garth Brooks.

    “1996, the AMAs instituted a new award, Favorite Artist of the Year, which was awarded to Garth Brooks. Brooks gave a short speech essentially saying he didn’t deserve the award in a year he didn’t do anything, and left the award on the podium. The category was discontinued”

    He’ll also be doing a song with GaGa and a hologram of Micheal Jackson.
    It’s at that point that Queen will come on stage and announce he’s joined the band. Then hologram images of Freddie Mercury< MJ and Adam will all sing a Time for Miracles. It'll be epic.

    (Please keep this info to yourselves though. It's super secret.)

  234. Didn’t someone tweet that Ryan Seacrest pimped Michael Jackson and Adam today in the same breath?? Could the tweet be related??

    this was Ryan’s tweet:

    Morning Here’s the link to listen to Michael Jackson’s new song “this is it” http://bit.ly/gNCA3

    He tweeted about Adam’s TFM 2 days ago when we all saw the same clip. So I don’t think they are close together.

    I based my prediction on Michael Jackson because of all the tributes on the various shows, Paula being on the AMA’s with Adam, and the previous use of Adam’s BOW clips on an early ABC tribute.

    I would love to see him perform BOW again.

  235. Sue is @suebrody1 on twitter. You can also follow me (@halfie6), but I’m more likely to break snark than news.

  236. An annnouncement that he is performing – yes please! Doesn’t matter with who or singing what! I love multimedia star Adam – movie work, TV work, and THE VOICE!

  237. Either way it sounds like we will have a bonanza of Adam news tomorrow. (Outfit, hair, upcoming gigs, etc. ‘” it’s all good!)

    no it’s not l good;(

    eta -sorry just being selfish and sad about missing tommorow…

  238. Has MJ chimed in on what she thinks the news could be?

    I am waiting for this too…

  239. Ryan mentioned them yesterday during his top 40 countdown…or was it today?

  240. this is crazie! …i thought i’m all ready for an adamstorm…never expect it’s gonna be armageddon!!!

  241. Jeez I leave for an hour ( to watch the absolutely hot Zachary Quinto) and everyone has gone completely bonkers ;)

    Well, if you can’t beat ’em, join em. I’m calling the SNL gig!

    And now my saner half is saying “Remember The Roadblock”…..

    Or they could be debuting his single…..

    “Remember The Question Of The Day”…….

    What’s a fantard to do?

  242. An insider told me Adam is not only hosting but he’s winning the Award for Favorite Artist of the Year. But he’s planning on pulling a Garth Brooks:

    “1996, the AMAs instituted a new award, Favorite Artist of the Year, which was awarded to Garth Brooks. Brooks gave a short speech essentially saying he didn’t deserve the award in a year he didn’t do anything, and left the award on the podium. The category was discontinued”

    And there’s def a performance planned. Holograms of Freddy Mercury and Micheal Jackson will be performing a Time for Miracles with Adam.
    It’s going to be Epic. But I think most of this stuff will be a surprise and not announced in advance. :)

    And I think both Gaga and Adam will be touring with Queen and the hologram of Michael Jackson. But sadly only for the Australian leg.

  243. tweet from laura DishofSalt Heading back to LA from Atlanta. AMA nominations tmw and you know what that means….. Adam!!!! All those fingers and toes crossed worked :)

    such a fangirl

  244. Maybe they are going to have some type of dedication to the greats of rock and roll. They could have Queen, Led Zeppelin, KISS, Aerosmith and maybe JOurney. Adam could perform with Queen, singing bohemian raphsody.

  245. I can’t get the aol TfM video to download… is there a particular software/site that works with aol???

    I’d appreciate some advice! I just had to spend 2 days on the beach in Galveston w/o my Adam fix ( it was tough! really! )

  246. Here’s a list of performers at last years AMA awards’ ¦

    Mariah Carey
    Coldplay
    The Fray
    Jonas Brothers
    Alicia Keys
    Annie Lennox
    Leona Lewis
    Ne-Yo
    New Kids On The Block
    Pink
    Pussycat Dolls
    Rihanna
    Taylor Swift
    Kanye West
    Christina Aguilera
    Miley Cyrus (according to ET)
    Beyonce

    Those are some rather heavy hitters in the industry. If Adam is asked to perform his new single this year, I will be blown away’ ¦that would be a HUGE honor. j/s

    No, there were tweets that during Ryan’s show this morning, he SAID something about Michael Jackson and Adam in the same breath. The tweet was from someone listening to the show:

    Ryan seacrest just pimped MJ and Adam Lambert in the same breath. Pretty cool.
    about 11 hours ago from txt
    Tweeter: kjavsu

  250. Guys the announcement is 8:30a.m. PST according to Negative Natalie:

    NegativeNatalie: wow @adamlambert fans – thanks for all your questions – you guys rock!!! listen tomorrow! 8:30 am pst! kiisfm.com if you’re not in LA.
    5 minutes ago from web

    So that is 11:30 a.m. EST. The AMA annpouncements is 9:30 EST, right?

  251. I juts woke up, to find storming clouds overhead. I’m not sleeping again until the album comes out I’ll tell you guys that much. Squee!

    Re. The big announcement, I’d say it’s about the single’s drop date. And Adam performing at the AMA’s went from possible to probable.

    I *really* want to here mj’stake on this…

  253. I can’t get the aol TfM video to download’ ¦ is there a particular software/site that works with aol???

    How about using the video from YouTube?

  254. I’m pretty sure only Adam is performing this year. Everyone else will be a hologram that he’ll duet with – Elvis, MJ, Freddy, etc. But Adam will also be hosting of course. Have I mentioned all the rumors yet?

    For realz, Cook did the pre-show for the AMAs last year. I wouldn’t be surprised if Adam got the same gig. ABC is owned by Disney and Fox has a deal with them.

  255. How could Adam win performer of the year without releasing an album or a single??? Is this for being on Idol? Is that even possible???

    If he’s a presenter, I’ll be thrilled. Yes, the roadblock situation makes me very cautious these days…

  256. No, Studio57, that is 9:30 Pacific Time.

    Did you Los Angeles area people know that tickets are still available for the AMA award show? I would totally go except we have a wedding to go to that day! :(

  257. @Studio57, I thought everything was PST since it is in California…but my head exploded about 3 pages back so I’m sure I have it confused.

  267. ETA: Let me just say I really disagree with some of the speculation, it’s kind of out there imho. And in my best Cutting Edge “Toepick!” voice let me just say “Roadblock!”

    For realz, Cook did the pre-show for the AMAs last year. I wouldn’t be surprised if Adam got the same gig. ABC is owned by Disney and Fox has a deal with them.

    Well that seems very reasonable guess to me. And hey last year when Cook performed he was the AI winner and had a single that was doing very well. Adam has neither of even that, so to me even that would be cool for Adam. No way he is hosting, presenting? possibly, performing during the show? hmmm, seems a lot less likely to me.

  268. jpfan your post cracked me up – loving the holograms on tour concept – LOL

  269. Happily, I can say I am not going to lose any sleep over this. I am finally secure in the fact that Adam is amazing, people love him, and anything Adam related is good. :)

  270. I got immediately that jpfan’s post was being sarcastic and I thought, spot on. Well played, sir and funny.

    hey bored, before you go SueBrody is our resident super tweeter so you can probably follow her tomorrow. Or, maybe even MJ. I do not do the tweet thing but I think MJ has a twitter going on also.

    I think squirrely is better than I am, but I do not think she goes by that on twitter. mj goes by mjsbigblog. ;)

    Again, I shall get no work done. Thank God I have my own office…I may be at work till midnight tomorrow, given how little work I will get done prior to 6PM. (Not to mention physical therapy at 9AM for my knee/ankle b/c I am a wreck in general. Heh.)

    So I guess I better listen to KISS 108.FM in Boston tomorrow for Ryan news (it’s simulcast on KISS here). 10AM is 7AM PST, so I hope that’s early enough.

    I heard Adam is getting a lifetime achievement award from the Grammy’s. ;)

  272. Yes jpfan, I got your satire so you need no schooling! Unfortunately, with these threads you have to take things in context with the previous posts — those newly joining will sometimes have cause to think we have lost our minds. Ok, well, maybe we have.

    No one thinks Adam is going to win any award. We are just trying to figure out what the big announcement is going to be that the AMA people are tweeting about; and the news Adam is going to give us during the Ryan Seacrest show at 8:30 a.m. PST tomorrow.

  273. If they put Adam performing on the red carpet – NO ONE WOULD EVER GO INSIDE.

  274. I wish the “show all comments” feature was functional. Could save some of the misunderstandings.

  275. I’ve got it! Adam is announcing that he is going to be the the new quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

  276. LMAO! Just read a comment on the MTV site that Adam’s 2012 song is really called “Time For Marigolds”

    And what’s up Lurkers? Come out and play- there’s about 500 of you on here right now. You know you want to.

  277. smelling excitement. Can someone summarize what’s happening?

    we’ve all lost our minds

  278. When the story broke about Adam, Paula and Snoop announcing the AMA nominees, mj did predict…

    ETA: The AMAs will air two days before Adam’s album drops on the 24th. ABC isn’t FOX, but they have a good relationship with the Idols, nonetheless. Adam appearing on the AMA telecast to promote his album is a pretty good bet at this point‘ ¦

    Presenting or performing. I’d put money on performing! :-)

    I’ve got it! Adam is announcing that he is going to be the the new quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

    Bwahahahahahaha. (hmmm, maybe that would work out somehow….)

  281. I wish the ‘show all comments’  feature was functional. Could save some of the misunderstandings.

    I miss that feature too! A lot! Someone else mentioned it recently too.

  282. Ahhhh Star, this makes more sense than my initial take (which was there was to be an afternoon press event.)

    Thanks for this:

    @Mellynnette there will be coverage in the afternoon by all the major media outlets. Look 4 a big announcement regarding Adam

    Personally, I don’t take this to mean there will be another announcement in the afternoon. I just thought it meant that coverage of the AMA nominations being read by Adam, Paula, and Snoop will start popping up in the news in the afternoon. Again, this is the tweet that was being responded to:

    @OfficialAMAs SO happy that Adam was chosen to help present noms! PLEASE say there will be some video coverage, even if it’s not live? #ama

    So basically OfficialAMAs was just answering her question about when she could expect to see coverage.

  283. What about Adam announcing to be opening act for Lady GaGa’s tour ?

    If that was in reference to my post about all Adam news is “good”, then honestly I’m not sure. I love them both.

  284. So, should we take bets on what Adam is wearing. Suit and tie, or leather jacket and t-shirt, or will he be a bit OTT?

    But will it be emo or Elvis hair?

    EMO HAIR (please God, EMO!ADAM). I would like him to wear the suit from ACIGC, Top 2. Very classy (per Paula). Very NO WAY IN HELL IS THIS GOING TO HAPPEN, but I liked it. ;) He does not go OTT for this, IIMO, and please, if he wears the striped zebra pants, I will hurl.

    How about the one where he is doing this CUTER THAN THOU pose, sort of half on his side (but standing)? That one. It’s his “I am a fierce yet introspective model” pose.

    Still reading thread…

  285. Summary? We have determined what we think Adam will be wearing; we believe Adam will announce that he will be performing with Queen or Lady Gaga at the AMA awards show and that will segue into his announcement that he is touring with Gaga next Spring.

    Is it really all that crazy? (as she searches medicine cabinet for meds)

  286. Left work just as the AMA Adam big news thing broke and was hoping that by now you guys would have figured what it is. No? In any case, it’s a night of flailing!!!! And of apparently losing our minds.

  287. I wish the ‘show all comments’  feature was functional. Could save some of the misunderstandings.

    I miss that feature too! A lot! Someone else mentioned it recently too.

    me too…

    it would help,especially TOMMOROW.ahem.

  288. Loved that suit! With that great tie and the cufflinks Hot!

    Ditto. Until I saw an HQ pic of that outfit, I didn’t realize that the tie had tiny skulls embroidered on it, lol. No wonder Adam thought it was cool.

  289. You guys are completely insane and I love you. I guess I get to add ‘hosting the AMAs before he even has one hit single’  to my list of OTT Adam predictions.

    Yes halfie, but he has a hit snippet!

  290. @LindaG23

    Yes halfie, but he has a hit snippet!

    Yeah, halfie, how many hit snippets does Jimmy Kimmel have?

    Goodnight Luv, hope you got your homework done!

  291. Is it really all that crazy?

    yes.but like halfie I love you guys anyway:)

    okay goodnight fo realzzz :)

  292. And what’s up Lurkers? Come out and play- there’s about 500 of you on here right now. You know you want to.

    Well, there’s at least one out here. :) *waves* You guys are a riot and have me laughing constantly. I love reading all the comments. Especially when there’s so much Adam excitement! Can’t wait for the big announcement and will be anxious to get back here tomorrow afternoon to find all the goodies that you all have posted! Thanks in advance! :))

  293. Yeah, halfie, how many hit snippets does Jimmy Kimmel have?

    Well, there’s, “I’m f*cking Ben Affleck,” that was pretty good.

  294. ok last thing-kris’s album cover= WIN!!!!!!!!!

    holy shit just saw it on top idol…

  295. It had skulls on it…the tie???

    Can someone give me a link to the closeup????

  296. Funnier still are the reviews of a snippet’ ¦

    I know! and so many of them…

  297. Glad to find everyone so calm and laid-back here tonight- LOL! Wow, I was thinking of calling in sick tomorrow because I wasn’t feeling too hot, and now I’m sure of it.

    halfie– ROFL! Football would be my new favorite sport!

    TXArchitect: I downloaded TfM from here:
    http://www.sendspace.com/file/zaf0eu

    It includes both the audio snippet and the audio part of the video, so it’s a whole 1:30 long :)

  298. Well, there’s, ‘I’m f*cking Ben Affleck,’  that was pretty good.

    Yes, but I think that is for a different award, not music.

  299. I wish the ‘show all comments’  feature was functional. Could save some of the misunderstandings.

    I miss that feature too! A lot! Someone else mentioned it recently too.

    Yeah, cause all I do is hit older comments, older comments, OLDER FREAKING COMMENTS, and by the time I get there, y’all have posted 100 more times. And come on, I hardly ever post.

    HA HA HA

    How do you guys know how to follow? Like who knew to follow AMAs? I am now, but am I supposed to guess this stuff? Cause trust me, I’m on Twitter a LOT, but not all day long…just part of the day long, and my boss called me out on it, so I have to be careful, dammit.

    I am so happy that Jim DID WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO, i.e., write something really cool in his TFM blog.

    I hope this announcement is a BIG ONE TOMORROW

    Our hopes and expectation
    Black holes and revelations….

    (Hey, I just got Kris’s LLWD from my iTunes pass and they decided on his cover art, and…oops, wrong non-existent thread. Back to ADAM FLAILING, already in progress, that’s for sure sure. WOOT.)

  300. For the first time ever, dick clark productions will stream a pre-show live to ABC.com and USTREAM. A widget for media outlets and consumers will be available to grab; instructions to follow.

    This was on the bottom of the press release regarding the AMA

  301. thnx Cindy .can’t edit.

    okay THIS time I promise I’m leaving-gnight…;)

  302. I love you guys. You have lost your minds. I’m glad that everyone is so happy and just laughing. Adam, thank your for being the catalyst for this happy explosion.

    The last time I was this excited about a songtrack song was Whitney in the The Bodyguard. I hope Adam has a similiar success.

    I cant’t stay up as late as I did last night. Good night MJ. I will always love you. Yes. I desperately need sleep. So goodbye please don’t cry. I’m not what you need. I will always love you..

    Yes I’m crazy. Adam did that.

  303. Tonight’s thread has been the pre-Adamstorm practice thread. We were in a pretty rough scrimmage in full pads. Tomorrow — the real deal. Starts at 8:30 a.m PST and there is a link to Ryan’s realtime stream somewhere back there back there.

    I am going to get a good night’s rest so I can call in sick tomorrow.

    Later guys!

    It’s all over Twitter.

    Okay, so, anyway…I wish I could call in sick tomorrow. :( I so cannot believe I have to WORK duriing the LEGIT FIRESTORM. I deserve it to party, tho, after surviving Black Sunday (i.e., my beloved Red Sox got swept by the Angels and the Patriots lost to the Broncos…snif).

    OHMANTHISISTOOMUCHTOTAKEFLAILINGCANNOTBREATHE

    ETA: Thank you, kradamour. I will try it, sayeth the Technofail, aka ME.

    ETA 2: I still don’t understand how to do it. :(

  308. SuBro: just think of all the time you’ll have for Adam with the Sox out. They were just looking out for you!

  309. Been lurking off and on as I do work for work, squeeing the whole time! This is fun, but it’s also making all us poor Adam fans crazy! I vote for an announcement that he’ll be a presenter at the AMAs. That would be so awesome. It’d be especially awesome if he performed, but I kind of think he’s too new in the industry for such a big honor. I can’t wait to get home from work tomorrow to check this thread out for the news!

  310. I’ve got it! Adam is announcing that he is going to be the the new quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

    LOL.. LOL.. LOL… I was thinking head of Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders.. he will lead and dance with those girls.. LOL

  311. The news Adam has for tomorrow could be anything. Performing at the AMAs (David Cook did last year). The title of his album. The title of his first single (other than TFM). When his music video is going to be out. Whether he’s having a new “special jacket” made. He must be planning to call in to Seacrest because according to that announcement he’s going to be on just 30 minutes before the AMA announcements. Wonder if I can figure out a way to play z-100 on my office computer.

    I’m sad that there is no live coverage of the announcements — I’m really hoping that David Cook gets a nomination. And it would be fun to see Adam live.

    We can haz “show all comments” bak, plz? I appreciate the tip on how to get to the first page, but it was nice to be able to just scroll down the whole list.

  312. Kurt, kurt’ ¦is that you???

    Now Amazon bestsellers chart show Adam with a green arrow ,up!
    Moved from 8 to now 6. Haven’t the fans finished buying ?

    Wow if he sings during the AMA nominations announcement –
    imagine what that will do to the blogs and to the album sales.

    Thanks MJ for this perfect blend of exciting bits and pieces about Adam combining into an exciting brew that fuels our imagination to go into hyperdrive. In short, thanks!

    Everyone on twitter is already assuming it’s Adam he’s talking about.

    ETA: It really is fun being on this ride LOL

  320. Adam said his favorite outfit from Idol was the dark suit he wore on Disco night. I believe it was by the designer who’s name is similar to his producer Rob Cavallo. Maybe he’ll wear it. I remember it as that was one of my favorite performances of his. If I Can’t Have You, just brought lots of emotion. It had rather pointy shoulder pads, and was a fabric with a sheen. It’s really bad how we remember all these details. Altho I love the suits he wore, I think we’ll see a more casual Adam due to the early hour. Basically he could wear (or not ) most anything I just need to see and hear Adam.

  321. SuBo (not to be confused with SuBro, HA HA) and Babs are ahead of Adam on amazon.

    THEY.MUST.BE.STOPPED.
    RESISTANCE.IS.FUTILE.

    So I guess we all turn on Ryan tomorrow (he comes first, right, before the AMAs, or is he AFTER the AMAs?) and squee and flail.

    I need to watch some sports shows on Black Sunday again, halfie, so I can fully appreciate the Adam Storm. Still grieving, tho it’s getting easier. I hope this announcement isn’t:

    Adam’s album is coming out on November 24.

    Because then a collective Adam Nation will do unspeakable things.

    ETA: Greg Wells was talking about Adam until he says otherwise, and of course I tweeted him about it. Puhlezze. As if (not).

    3. Accorging to OfficialAMAs tweet there will be Adam news tomorrow covered by all the major media outlets.

    @OfficialAMAs SO happy that Adam was chosen to help present noms! PLEASE say there will be some video coverage, even if it’s not live? #ama
    about 5 hours ago from web in reply to OfficialAMAs

    OfficialAMAs @Mellynnette there will be coverage in the afternoon by all the major media outlets. Look 4 a big announcement regarding Adam about 3 hours ago from web

    What I have been able to find out the evening —

    – A list of initial performers for the AMAs will be announced tomorrow.

    – The AMA announcement (usually a nothing event) is a hot press event. Publicists that can usually get in have been frozen out because there is so much interest.

    – There are interviews with Adam scheduled after the announcement event at the Beverly Hills Hotel and there is a lot more durnig the week.

    My conclusions:

    The Ryan news will be a teaser — my bet is an announcement that Ryan will be premiering TfM in the future — maybe Friday.

    OfficialAMAs “a big announcement regarding Adam” does not mean that he is a presenter at the AMAs. That would not be called “a big announcement”. It could be that he is performing on the AMAs (show or preshow) and, if it is like last year, it will be announce tomorrow.

    Rationale: Traditionally, the AMAs serve as a launching pad for artists to debut new singles or promote upcoming albums — and Idol alums are very popular on the AMAs — so having Adam as a preformer promoting his new album would be really unusual but it is the best fit to all the clues we have.

    Prediction: Adam Lambert will perform on the 2009 AMAs.

    Prediction #2: If I am all wrong, y’all can laugh at me tomorrow at around 1:00PM PT 4:00PM ET.

    Coming from Greg Wells that is quite a compliment!!

    Also, Adam is now listed on Greg Wells’ bio and wiki page:

    new album by Adam Lambert – to be released in 2009

    So looks like Wells thinks his song is on “TBD”.

  327. Adam said his favorite outfit from Idol was the dark suit he wore on Disco night.

    Roberto Cavalli

    He loved the jacket with the padded shoulders. He wore the black suit on finale night and was seen in the jacket on his first paparazzi night with Drake.

  328. Thank you Q3 for your infinite insights and sleuthing skills and I would never laugh at you… :)

  329. Thank you, Q3!!! That is so thorough. And I SOOO hope you are right.

    God, all I want is an interview w/ Ryan at this point and watching him announce the AMA nominees looking HOT, as always (and thank GOD we get to see this!). If he is a performer…well, there really are no words.

  330. Thank you Q3 for your infinite insights and sleuthing skills and I would never laugh at you’ ¦

    Me either because I happen to think you’re right in your assumption! The timing of the AMA’s being 2 days prior to Adam’s CD release is perfection for his performing on the show and promoting the CD.

    I will make a bold prediction in that Adam will dare to wear something new tomorrow for his big day!

  331. – The AMA announcement (usually a nothing event) is a hot press event. Publicists that can usually get in have been frozen out because there is so much interest.

    Wonder why?

  332. Janus: Thank you Q3 for your infinite insights and sleuthing skills and I would never laugh at you’ ¦

    Well I hate being reduced to guessing!!

    I suffered thru 3 hours of Westside cocktails tonight, to learn that Twillight is really big (duh!) and that no one know anything about Adam’s “big announcement”, release dates, single, nothing. Secrets are not usually this well kept in LA. My only conclusion is that very, very few people know anything. Because otherwise I could find out something!!

    But I do know someone who will be at that BHH tomorrow with press credentials and who promised to text me what is going on!!

  333. I suffered thru 3 hours of Westside cocktails tonight,

    But how were the cocktails? ;)

    Thank you so much again, and we will be online ALL DAY (well, I will) for breaking info from your friend as it becomes available.

    Aw, that’s awesome! And of course you’ll keep us all updated?! Oh, and your personal sacrifices on behalf of the rest of us is much appreciated.

  335. Wonder why?

    It is not Paula or Snoop Dogg. LOL!

    People have been promised an Adam story and he hasn’t given an interview for a month. And it’s LA where the news is “always the next new thing”.

    sidewalkstory

    Adam said his favorite outfit from Idol was the dark suit he wore on Disco night.

    Roberto Cavalli

    He loved the jacket with the padded shoulders. He wore the black suit on finale night and was seen in the jacket on his first paparazzi night with Drake.

    Oh, I think that something new from Cavilli would be great! I just really want to see something new! (Adam really is better than Jackie O and Princess Di put together — the designers should give him free clothes so we never have to see the same thing twice!)

  336. Q3, you rock my socks.

    i can’t wait for tomorrow!! even if the “big” announcement is a fail, we will at least have new adam video/interviews/clothes/etc.

    greg well’s tweet makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. it has to be so vindicating for him, the guy that record companies wouldnt take a chance on a year ago, to have people in the industry gushing non-stop about him.

  337. Aw, that’s awesome! And of course you’ll keep us all updated?! Oh, and your personal sacrifices on behalf of the rest of us is much appreciated.

    Yes, I plan on “suffering” a lot tomorrow when I finally wrap up this project. Then fianlly go back to Mississippi!

  338. Sooo, would Adam have a stylist for an event like this? I don’t know how that works. Anyone have any insights?

    It really is hard to erase YHAs from my brain. Please, please let there be a stylist! (Who doesn’t favor the Munsters, or Beetlejuice.)

    Now THIS is making me smile very broadly… grinning ear to ear. The album is going to be epic.
    An dof course, we have tomorrow to look forward to– what a great way to start the week!

  340. Thanks, Q3. I applaud your deductive skills.

    I agree an announcement that Adam will perform at the 2009 AMA’s is the likeliest scenario. To me the question is: in the show itself or at the pre-show? The pre-show would be quite an honor as well since Cook did it last year as the winner, plus the pre-show is being streamed live this year for the first time – so it’s an even bigger deal.

    For the first time ever, dick clark productions will stream a pre-show live to ABC.com and USTREAM. A widget for media outlets and consumers will be available to grab; instructions to follow.

    This was on the bottom of the press release regarding the AMA

    If he performs on the show, my guess is he will perform the first single or TfM (not a tribute to MJ or a Queen collaboration). If it’s the pre-show, wouldn’t he perform multiple songs? What did David C do last year?

  341. So looks like Wells thinks his song is on ‘TBD’ .

    That would make it the title track of the album, then.

  342. Q3 You’re making me extremely excited. Stop it *whines*.
    Will you tweet about what your friend says? Pretty please? :)
    Ya know..for those of us who cant get on a comp for more than 5 minutes?
    I HOPE Adam has a new outfit tomorrow hehe :3

    Aw, that’s awesome! And of course you’ll keep us all updated?! Oh, and your personal sacrifices on behalf of the rest of us is much appreciated.

    *nodnod* It is it is.

    Oh and if you’re making me all excited for no reason? I’ll unfollow you on twitter. To let that serve as a lesson. (kidding :))

    I think we have a new celebrity fantard here peoples.

  343. The are not going to stick Adam on the pre-show 7 days after his theme song opens simultaneously in theaters in every country in the world on November 13th. Bucky Covington gets the pre-show.

  344. Ok, not to be a NegativeNeil, but I have to ask a blasphemous question: is there really a lot of Adam buzz outside of Idolville? I mean specifically when you’re out and about do you hear much about him — radio, TV, people talking, etc.? I only ask because I don’t, but then again it might just be me. Well, and truth be told, I’m somewhat afraid of “mentioning” him in conversations because after having done it once or twice, uh, well I get the feeling that my mental state is being scrutinized, if you know what I mean. (Ok, so “mentioning” is an understatement.) Consequently, I find it works best to obsess and — when there’s anything actually happening — celebrate in silence (which I might add is exceptionally difficult to do).

  345. Thanks Q3 I always appreciate your insight and information. I, also, think Adam will perform at the AMA’s. Do you have a guess why the AMA’s are such a ‘hot’ press event this year when they usually aren’t too big of deal?

    Wink8

    It really is hard to erase YHAs from my brain. Please, please, let there be a stylist! (Who doesn’t favor the Munsters, or Beetlejuice.)

    Now….that was funny! lol

    And I never knew who Greg Wells was before Adam worked with him….now….he’s my next best friend!!!

  346. Uh-oh, I think I broke the mood with my last post…there seems to be a stunned silence…sorry about that.

  347. RyanSeacrest looking at tmrw…got @adamlambert calling radio show to drop news, gonna debut leighton meester on air and whitney port in studio.

  348. Thanks, Kradamour for the help with “Older Comments”. I just got caught up after getting home late. THANKS to all of you for making me laugh and spew on the computer screen with all the wonderful possibilities ahead! Q3, you never cease to amaze me with your knowledge. It’s wonderful to have a community who gets this obsession.

  349. Laura Saltman:

    arrived safely back in LA. have something very interesting for Adam planned! stay tuned. and yes hopefully paula intv too. we luv her also.

    Well, and truth be told, I’m somewhat afraid of ‘mentioning’  him in conversations because after having done it once or twice, uh, well I get the feeling that my mental state is being scrutinized, if you know what I mean. (Ok, so ‘mentioning’  is an understatement.) Consequently, I find it works best to obsess and ‘” when there’s anything actually happening ‘” celebrate in silence (which I might add is exceptionally difficult to do).

    I experienced this with my 9 year old. She is so out there with her love for Adam and I have to remind her over and over, that not all moms and kids love Adam.

    We were doing a bake sale and she started writing “I love Adam” all over the table cloth. Me stressed. And I said don’t mention him around younger kids. Not everyone understands.

    Shame on me. I love Adam!!!!!!!

    My daughter and I had a great talk tho.

  351. FYI: Adam’s album pre-order is back up to #5 on Amazon (with a green arrow) and number 1 in the rock category.

    This has been my experience, as well, Janus. So private squeeing has to do it for me– for now. I’m confident Adam will be a megastar– do I’m just waiting… patiently.
    Unless I ‘m here. Then I’m uncontrollable.

  354. Hopefully he will soon top ‘” uh ‘” I mean outpace SuBo’ ¦

    LOL!

    Alas, mostly true for me as well. however, this has not stopped me from showing good friends who seem receptive, AI vids, or playing his music for them in the background or posting on my FB page that I love him and his amazing voice. I am brave in my fandom of Adam because I know he will not let me down. The music is finally coming……patience has paid off. See ya’ll tomorrow when the real news hits.

  357. . but we cant have him do a cover’ ¦i think it should be ‘ready guys! STRUT STRUT STRUT annnnnd KICK!’ 

    I’m sure he could own those moves, and we already know Adam can kick when the need arises.

    Yep. If Adam is going to be on the AMA’s he’ll be performing on the main PrimeTime show. Especially if he’s performing TFM.

  360. Hi all, I’m really a long time lurker from Victoria, BC Canada. But in reply to Janus, I have to say that there are a ton of Adam fans here (waiting on his every move) who are not necessarily in the “AI bubble”. This is a truly amazing thing!!!

  361. Northernbelle

    I love your name. I live in the Lower Mainland and I’ve been hanging out here at MJ’s but I’ve never been in the “AI bubble” either. And I’ve often wanted to tell people that … when they talk about the “bubble”. I’ve never watched AI. I didn’t watch it this year. For me, Adam Lambert was a lucky, chance internet discovery. And I’m sure that you’re right. There are a lot of us who have become aware of the Voice from outside of AI … (kinda) more from the “real world”. (so to speak)

    Actually, I’ve been wondering and wanting to ask other Canadians what they will be doing to buy Adam’s album. Whenever I’ve ordered things from Amazon, I’ve checked out both the Canadian and the US sites and chosen the cheapest (often the American, if you can get free shipping). And I’ve never ordered anything that got hit with duties or whatever fees at the border. So, I’d like to order from Amazon.com (through this site) except that I’m impatient and I don’t know if it would take longer (how much longer) to ship/receive.

    Any experience with this? Whatcha gonna be doing?

  362. I vote for him hosting the show! (A person can dream can’t they). We know people tune into anything he does, website hits go up, etc. They would watch the whole show, not just a part of it, and he’d be awesome at it. He’s funny, articulate, is comfortable in a live setting, and the industry peeps seem to accept him.

    Of course if they’ve already announced the host then it was a very quick dream.

  363. Hi Northernbelle: Any experience with this? Whatcha gonna be doing?

    Ontario here. I have ordered many cds from Amazon. I usually pay for the quickest shipping and get the cd in a week of ordering. I did the same thing for Adam’s cd. I cannot be assured that Walmart will carry it up here so I wanted to make sure that I got it. I guess while I’m waiting for it, I will have to rely on Mj’s to give me previews of the songs on the cd.

  364. The are not going to stick Adam on the pre-show 7 days after his theme song opens simultaneously in theaters in every country in the world on November 13th. Bucky Covington gets the pre-show.

    Please be right, please be right. NOT the pre-show, it gives me the squeaks. It’s just tooo….squeaky.

  365. Actually, I’ve been wondering and wanting to ask other

    Canadians what they will be doing to buy Adam’s album.

    Another Canadian (GTA) – I have not pre-ordered yet. I think that I will just buy off of itunes the day it releases. I also have a few people to “gift” it to – I might buy cd’s for that. I am not sure if you click on itunes here if it takes you to the Canadian site and whether it helps MJ out or not?

    Yep. If Adam is going to be on the AMA’s he’ll be performing on the main PrimeTime show. Especially if he’s performing TFM.

    ITA. And I prefer this option to the hosting theory.

    While I’m sure Adam can do anything, even walk on water, I don’t think I want him to host the AMAs. That is a little premature, I think, and I would much rather have him do a kick ass performance on the show.
    After all, he needs to get people listening to his awesome voice, watching his astonishing performances– in order to solidify himself as the true musical genius of our time.
    Oh, and he needs to sell gajillions of copies of his first album, of course.

  367. When does the events start today? Shouldn’t ryans show already been? What was the news?

  368. I want to make sure I have this right….Adam is to call in Ryan’s show at 830PST which would be 1030 CST for me (IS THIS RIGHT)… so if i have Kiss on computer at that time I should get it right??? (DON”T WANT TO MISS A THING)

  369. Many of us were talking about Adam’s amazing talent over coffee this morning. Adam has many French fans.

  370. I want to make sure I have this right’ ¦.Adam is to call in Ryan’s show at 830PST which would be 1030 CST for me (IS THIS RIGHT)’ ¦ so if i have Kiss on computer at that time I should get it right??? (DON’ T WANT TO MISS A THING)

    That stinks, I’ll be sitting in my doctors office when he’s making his announcement…bummer

  371. Taylor Swift, Eminem and Beyonce will be doing the pre show. As I said before Adam will be hosting, winning Artist of the Year and performing all the songs with holograms. Have your hankies ready when he does TFM with MJ and Freddy Mercury. They may make an exception for David Bowie but that’s not a done deal.

    (Not all of this stuff will be announced on Ryan’s show today. They don’t want to spoil the surprises)

  372. Hi, can anybody help me by telling me about this Ryan Seacrest call please. In France right now it is 1:55pm how and when can I hear Adam’s voice?

  373. Hmmm. Since you are posting here, I assume everyone has an internet connection. You probably even have heard of this thing called ‘Google’ . But, just in case you didn’t think of it:

    halfie- I was just going to send u a nice message that I love ur tweets or shall i say twats esp ur last one…loving it cause Adam is my cup a tea

  374. Merci once again xuziqueue…I’m very impressed at your prompt willingness to help others. This blog should be happy to have you. Well will have a late lunch and check in later to see what else is happening with this wonderful man.

  375. LOL – thanks guys, this thread has been a lot of fun to read :D (although entirely unproductive in regards to actually getting work done).

    Anyway, I agree with Q3’s deductions, performing at the AMAs seems to be the logical conclusion to the hints we’ve had so far, but I guess we’ll know more in 3-6 hrs.

  376. halfie- I was just going to send u a nice message that I love ur tweets or shall i say twats esp ur last one’ ¦loving it cause Adam is my cup a tea

    Thanks, dsp.

    And, for a non-snarky response to the time question: Adam is on with Seacrest exactly three hours from now, no matter where you live.

  377. Is there a link to the live stream of the AMA announcements somewhere? I thought there was but can’t find it. Anyone?

  378. Haha merci boku xuziqueue will come back later have nice day Au revoir ‘]’

  379. GOOD MORNING PEEPS!

    And, for a non-snarky response to the time question: Adam is on with Seacrest exactly three hours from now, no matter where you live.

    bRilLiAnT…..just.brilliant. :-) @halfie, you didn’t sleep? I know why, the sqeeeeeeze and flailing kept you awake.

    OK, I’m ready — ADAM, BRING IT!!!

  380. Seems like Greg Wells is a little excited about his work with Adam…I mean he is staking his reputation on an yet-to-be released album from a newbie artist with no previous track record. I think that says tons about how the industry feels about Adam and his potential.

    Adam Lambert – new album (to be released late 2009)
    Producer, Mixer, Co-Writer, Multiple Instruments

    This is on Greg’s website: GregWells.net and is under his discography.

  381. I agree Tess- alot of these writers and producers are really fanning the hype. Gotta say though- for someone who has worked with Mika, Pink and Rufus Wainright, that is a pretty nice compliment.

    I see everyone is starting to get excited. Me too, but…….

    REMEMBER THE ROADBLOCK

  382. REMEMBER THE ROADBLOCK

    But this time we actually have a real announcement that there will be a real announcement. LOL Last time we just flailed ourselves into believing there was a chance of a snippet during the roadblock based on some obscure rumor started by elephant girl….

  383. No, Dallas- it was actually because of Ryan’s producer that we all really, really started flailing. And then the poor guy had to go into the witness protection program. Only to come out a week later and do the SAME DAMN THING, lol. Okay, I am exagerrating a little, I know other people have tweeted about it too, but I just don’t want people to be disappointed.

  384. There is a poll on the main web page at Rolling Stone asking whose album you are most looking forward to: Adam, Shakira, Eminem or John Mayer.

    Adam has 39% of the vote:

    http://www.rollingstone.com/

    Oh, lordy lordy, it better not turn out to be one of those “close but no cigar” Idol alum albums. I truly believe that Adam’s voice can do wonders with songs, but I hear too many names that have mediocre-written and over-produced other good Idols’ stuff into mediocre land. And I’m looking at you, Rob Cavallo.

  385. But this time we actually have a real announcement that there will be a real announcement. LOL Last time we just flailed ourselves into believing there was a chance of a snippet during the roadblock based on some obscure rumor started by elephant girl’ ¦.

    True enough, but who knows whether we will think the real news was “worth it”. Prepare to be happy, but Remember the Roadblock.

  386. @studio57, it was actually because of Ryan’s producer that we all really, really started flailing. And then the poor guy had to go into the witness protection program.

    Laughing heartily!

    Yes I remember. He also picked up the elephant rumor and tweeted about it. LOL. Wonder if he has been released from witness protection or just had plastic surgery and a name change….

    so, STOP IT YOU GUYS, you are killing my buzz!!!! :-)

  387. Hi everyone!

    I’m de-lurking for a moment to share some titilating news from the Entertainment Tonight TV listings for tomorrow (Wed., Oct. 13):

    “Thrillers & Hotties!”, (2009), Mel Gibson in “Edge of Darkness”; Jamie Fox xand Gerard Butler in “Law Abiding Citizen”; Adam Lambert’s music video. (Entertainment).

    Can it be true?!?! Oh my!!!!!!!!!!

  388. Considering Ryan himself tweeted about it, and the AMAs official twitter tweeted about it, I really don’t think there’s anything to worry about. Geez.

  389. Yeah, I am kind of wondering how Adams album will end up being. I can kind of understand the problem with Cook because they can’t market him to the rock radio stations, but that’s ultimately what he is (a rocker). As for top40, they seem to have this idea that is has to be nickelbackish or it won’t work. I don’t know, I don’t think that is true. We have bands like Kings of Leon, Paramore and Muse that gets played on top40 right? Adam is in a slightly different situation in my opinion since he has clearly shown an appreciation of electronic pop. Also, Adams vocal style is very pop and rock friendly as opposed to, for example Clay Aiken. The screetchiness is actually not broadway at all and his very edgy singing tone goes well with pop. No need to autotune his voice a lot since it sometimes sounds naturally as an autotuned voice.

    So, I think Adam has things that speaks in his favour but we also have know how these albums have turned out in the previous years.

  390. I’m definitely not going to suffer through Ryan’s show for the next 2 hours. I’ll wait til 11:30 & hope I don’t miss anything!

    Also I thought the initial plan was to have the AMA announcements made on the morning shows (Today, GMA & Early Show). Obviously that was wrong and the up side of that is that Adam didn’t have to arise at the crack of dawn (or stay up all night – whichever was easier).

    Whatever comes of all this….I’m excited!

  391. So, does this mean Entertainment Tonight got the exclusive preview of Adam’s TfM video? And it’s debuting on Wednesday night’s show?

  392. @rin
    Hi!Welcome.Dont.be.a.lurker. !!

    That is exciting unless they are just going to tell us about it…when shot, when released, etc. I have learned the Remember the Roadblock rule when it comes to those entertainment shows and their promises.

  393. All I know is that I went back to listening to Adam’s voice on the TFM snippet today after not hearing it yesterday, and I am loving, loving, loving the way his voice makes me feel.

    Okay, now back to RL.

    Can’t wait for the big news.

  394. So, does that mean Entertainment Tonight got the exclusive preview of Adam’s TfM video? And it’s debuting on Wednesday night’s show?

    But … isn’t that today?

    Sorry ‘“ just re-read & should have been ‘Wed., Oct. 14’ ³

    Can you provide the URL please? And thank you.

  396. Thanks! I really don’t know what the ET listing means – my imagination runs wild with possibilities, but like you say, it may not be much. Certainly the media storm is getting into gear, though.

  397. ET would seem to be a strange place to release the video. But it could be a snippet or a “making of” segment.

  398. ET would seem to be a strange place to release the video. But it could be a snippet or a ‘making of’  segment.

    I agree. Probably just trying to reel in viewers by Adam-name-dropping.

  399. it was actually because of Ryan’s producer that we all really, really started flailing. And then the poor guy had to go into the witness protection program.

    That poor guy – he never saw what hit him.

    Considering Ryan himself tweeted about it, and the AMAs official twitter tweeted about it, I really don’t think there’s anything to worry about. Geez.

    LOL, it’s not that there’s any doubt that Adam will be on Seacrest’s show and will have an announcement. It’s just that yesterday in this thread the speculation on exactly what that announcement would be got a little over the top.

    We’re just cautioning each other that what may seem like a “big announcement” to normal people who haven’t heard hardly anything about Adam since the finale, might not seem that huge to those of us who have been plugged into every detail of every stop of the tour, every article, every interview and random twitters scoured out of obscurity to be examined from every angle in the light.

    It would just suck to get our hopes up again for something spectacular once again, only to have them dashed with something we already knew or theorized ages ago.

  401. tweet from Paula

    PaulaAbdul just woke up. Its soo early! Gotta do Pre AMA press for the nominations. I am presenting with mr. Adam lambert. So fricken excited!

    umm…what about Mr. Snoop Dogg – why she leaving the Dogg out???

  402. A downer would be him announcing to Ryan that he will announce the AMA nominnes one hour later.

  403. Guys,
    MTV is already talking about the flailing here in this blog. I think we will all make history again with the anticipation of the music video and whatever shadow of wonderful Adam things to come.This is really fun. But I need more Adam music. It used to be that two cups of coffee and I am all set for the day- nah , need more Adam music.

    Lambert lovers trended “#timeformiracles” on Twitter well into Sunday, and “Idol” fan hubs like MJ’s Big Blog were overwhelmed with comments that described physical reactions to the sneak peak. We’re talking tears, shaking and cold sweats, folks. When’s the last time you experienced that from a snippet of content? (Justin Bieber fans and Twilighters need not apply.)

    http://newsroom.mtv.com/2009/10/12/adam-lambert-time-for-miracles/

  404. I don’t see the big to do to with Justin Bieber, his stuff is the typical autotune pop crap on the radio today. It’s dancy but nothing special.

  405. ok soverymel, halfie and studio57,

    We’re just cautioning each other that what may seem like a ‘big announcement’  to normal people who haven’t heard hardly anything about Adam since the finale, might not seem that huge to those of us who have been plugged into every detail of every stop of the tour, every article, every interview and random twitters scoured out of obscurity to be examined from every angle in the light.

    Voices of reason prevail. You are correct. I will prepare accordingly. (taking valium now.)

  406. I don’t see the big to do to with Justin Bieber, his stuff is the typical autotune pop crap on the radio today. It’s dancy but nothing special.

    Oh, but he’s s-s-s-s-s-o-o-o-o-o-o c-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-t-e! And in such a nonthreatening way, too!

    Music? He plays music?

    Seriously. “Music” has always just been an excuse for teenage girls to have public, group orgasms over boys. Once upon a time, they called that a Dionysian festival or something. We call it “pop music.”

  407. We’re just cautioning each other that what may seem like a ‘big announcement’  to normal people who haven’t heard hardly anything about Adam since the finale, might not seem that huge to those of us who have been plugged into every detail of every stop of the tour, every article, every interview and random twitters scoured out of obscurity to be examined from every angle in the light.

    ITA. Remember how excited everyone got when AO announced the “question of the day” series? We wanted questions about the single, the music, next events, etc. We thought the questions would be new, relevant, current, and give us the info we wanted.

    Everyone was so disappointed when AO posted old video footage where Adam answered the same tired old questions. Most of Adam’s fans have spent so much time scouring the internet we could pinpoint the date of the original interview based on the shirt Adam was wearing plus the hairstyle.

    Floppy emo? Upright? Fluffy emo? We could tell the difference. We are not typical. I like to think that’s because we have good taste and are early adopters of this man’s amazing and unique talents, but the rest of the world isn’t quite there yet.

    Hence, big news to us has to be REALLY big, whereas big news to the rest of the world may be much more limited in scope. We see Adam at the highest pinnacles of the entertainment industry IMMEDIATELY and think that he deserves to be there. (And we are completely right in that belief). Correct??

    That being said, I think there will be some great news today, and I certainly love flailing about it, but just thought I’d try to keep it real.

    I’m feeling very practical today!!

  408. tweet from Paula

    PaulaAbdul just woke up. Its soo early! Gotta do Pre AMA press for the nominations. I am presenting with mr. Adam lambert. So fricken excited!

    Nice! Especially considering she has nearly 1.3m twitter followers.

  409. True enough, but who knows whether we will think the real news was ‘worth it’ . Prepare to be happy, but Remember the Roadblock.

    Well – in the interest of being hopeful for big news today, but not OVERLY optimistic, my one thought is that it might be some news that we already know about (being the idol die-hards that we are ;-) ) but that the wider Ryan viewing audience may not know about. Maybe. IDK.

    Can’t wait though! Big meeting today was cancelled, which means more free time for Adam – so all is well!

  410. I have thought about it and here is what would qualify as “big news” for me:

    1) Performing at AMAs
    2) Ryan playing a snippet of Adam’s album single
    3) Announcement of Adam tour if he is opening for someone buzzworthy.
    4) Announcement of a single performance with someone buzzworthy (i.e., Adam and Queen together for a four-song set at some festival).

    Here’s what would not count (for me):

    1) Presenting at AMAs
    2) AMA pre-show (both of these are nice honors, but not big news to me)
    3) Anything we already know
    4) Release dates for his single, TFM or TFM video (unless it is today or tomorrow, in which case, I would promote it to “big news”)

  411. Really big news for us is not really big news for the gen pop. I get that. But why would an AMA official announce that they would have an announcement about Adam. Why would the AMA announce anything about his single or TfM etc. Of course we kicked this around interminably last night (and Q3 went riding off into the night looking for answers) and the only reasonable answer is that it has something to do with the AMA, i.e. the awards show. That, my friends, is why my expectations are a tad bit higher than normal. OK, so we were tetering on the edge of the abyss last night but we pulled back before we plunged.

    Edit: I am thinking there maybe will be two different announcements. One made at AMA press/media event about Adam, and Adam is making an announcement to Ryan about something like his single or the TfM video, etc. Is this too OTT?

  412. Adam tweets:

    @PaulaAbdul: It IIIIS early Paula! So excited to see you!!!!! It been a hot minute.

  413. 3) Anything we already know

    Well, halfie, here’s to hoping they can read our minds…

  414. Adam Tweet

    adamlambert @PaulaAbdul: It IIIIS early Paula! So excited to see you!!!!! It been a hot minute.

    I’m off to the doctors then to work so I have to get the news after the fact …don’t blow up the internet guys ;)

  415. Oh, and I do agree with Dallas. Announcement is highly likely to be AMA-related. Performing? Presenting? Pre-show? If it’s AMA, that’s pretty much it, right?

  416. Oh, and of the three, I can’t imagine Seacrest giving up his airtime just to announce “presenting”, so I think it’s got to be that Adam is peforming or doing a pre-show, possibly in conjunction with presenting.

    (Again, assuming announcement is AMA-related).

  417. Seacrest wants hits and viewership just like everybody else. Maybe he got the exclusive on the TfM single or the video or the album single.

  418. Is this too OTT?

    LOL! It’s the Adam thread – I don’t think there’s such a thing as too OTT ;-)

    I kid I kid – anxiously waiting with the rest of you for the goings on (whatever they happen to be) of today!

  419. It been a hot minute.

    ETA: But past tense hot minutes does make one wonder…

  421. Ryan Seacrest on his radio station saying that Adam Lambert will be here and we’re gonna see what he can share with us about his new single (paraphrased)

    oh Janus, you made my mind go there. Bad,Bad,Bad!

  423. He probably meant ‘It be in a hot minute’ .

    Ah, I got it – never heard that particular term before. Although I just checked urban dictionary and he probably meant “it been a hot minute” (as he wrote), which apparently means “it’s been a long time”.
    The slang is probably the hardest part of not being a native speaker :).

  424. Merci to american idol for bringing Adam to us. Waiting for his voice.

    I’ve actually heard it used both as described above as a long period of time and as the complete opposite, to describe an extremely short period of time. For example: If Adam’s single appeared on iTunes, I’d be all over that in a hot minute. So context matters, just to make it even MORE confusing.

  426. and he probably meant ‘it been a hot minute’  (as he wrote), which apparently means ‘it’s been a long time’ .

    Yeah, that’s the most likely meaning, especially since his tweets have been pretty articulate.

  427. Hmm, from listening to the KIIS FM live stream, it doesn’t sound like having the actual ability to sing is a requirement for getting your songs on the radio…

  428. yay for today being an Adam day! Don’t wanna hear anything about Kris. Adam, break free.

    Oh come on now…. surely you have heard Miley, Brittney and the Jonas Brothers??? They are such excellent examples of the talent we have today on the radio. 8)

    Has it ever been?

    ETA: @soverymel: yep, context always matters, which can be extremely frustrating at times :)

    Oh, and I do agree with Dallas. Announcement is highly likely to be AMA-related. Performing? Presenting? Pre-show? If it’s AMA, that’s pretty much it, right?

    Unless the American Medical Association is making Adam an honorary doctor of voice. (Last night I thought this thread was going to a point where Obama had decided to share his Peace Prize. OTT, us at MJ’s—nah)

  432. Ryan Seacrest on his radio station saying that Adam Lambert will be here and we’re gonna see what he can share with us about his new single (paraphrased)

    Uh-oh – this suddenly has me thinking about every interview about his songs that he’s already done – how much is he really allowed to say yet? Or will it just be the recycled phrases of “dance, sexy, electronic, pop, with a little rock, etc.”

  433. If Ryan Seacrest asks Adam Lambert “Can you tell us what kind of album you are putting out” well, just kill.me.now. I think I will have to commit myself rather than wait on someone else to notice.

  434. Well, I think it would be possible that the Ryan interview will actually result in the name of a single. Realistically, the single should be out within a couple of weeks, so I don’t think revealing the name now would be out of the question.

    A title would be great :-)

  436. I’m actually hoping the single will come out by the 24th. It’s need time to build up airplay,

  437. Lee Cherry, co-creator of Zodiac Show tweeted that his new web site is up. In case you didn’t know he is a photographer and the one who did the photo of Adam sitting on the floor with ripped jeans and a goatee.

    If you click on the link and go to photography, you will see Adam’s picture, Carmit’s picture (Zodiac, Pussycat Dolls) and Brian Friedman. Brian Friedman is a dancer/choreographer and sometimes choreographs on SYTYCD. He knows Adam from the Zodiac Show. Adam gave him a shout-out tweet when he performed w/ Janet Jackson on the VMA’s.

    Edit: Brian was prob the one who was going to introduce Adam to Michael Jackson as I believe he was working as one of the choreographers on MJ’s tour.

    Hot damn that second pic of Adam on the music page – yummy!

    If you go to the Zodiac link, you will see the singer wearing Adam’s shoulder cages from the season finale of AI. (I know, they were his before they were Adam’s.)

  440. I am not sure where everyone is today (what thread) but MJ very smartly just opened up a special “padded” thread for the Seacrest Announcement.

    We should all move over to that thread I guess for the announcement news.

  441. t’s been a hot minute – is slang for it’s been a long time … so he’s saying it’s been a long time since he’s seen her?
