Adam Lambert drops by Watch What Happens Live alongside Kylie Minogue

Adam Lambert is flattered and surprised that Lil Nas X even knows who he is.

A call in fan on Tuesday’s Watch What Happens Live asked the American Idol alum and Queen frontman how he felt about the queer hip-hop star thanking him for opening doors for modern queer talent in the music industry.

“That was very flattering that he even knows who I am,” Adam shared with Bravo host Andy Cohen. “I think he’s such a rock star and so bold and brave and I love what he’s doing, so I was very flattered by that.”

Andy mentions how far the industry has come from when Adam got into hot water over a racy performance on the American Music Awards in 2009. “To see him be able to get on stage and have backing from the industry,” Adam said, “And do racy fabulous edgy performances and finally getting to do that without being canceled or pulled off from a network. It was like ‘OK. This is great. We’ve come into a new chapter.'”

“Another One Bites the Dust” is Adam’s favorite Queen song

The singer also revealed that his favorite Queen recording right now is “Another One Bites the Dust.” He said, “It’s just such a good recipe. It’s so good.” Adam added, “And singing “The Show Must Go On” is a real meal. You really have to get into it. That always feels good.”

While Queen songs are big and bold and can be difficult to sing, Adam admitted that he finds pop songs can be harder to perform. “I actually find it harder to do some of these pop tracks because…you have it in your head ‘oh this is how it sounds on the record, I want to make sure I stay in a framework.” Pop star Kylie Minogue, who guested on the episode alongside Adam, nodded her head in agreement.

In another clip, Adam and Kylie played “Clubhouse Jukebox.” In it, he stated that he never tires of singing his first hit “Whaddaya Want From Me.” Kylie asked him if there is a song he doesn’t think he could sing. “I don’t think I’ll be singing hip-hop anytime soon,” Adam replied.

Adam is currently promoting his album of covers, High Drama, available now.
