According to the LA Times, reporters were let into Adam Lambert’s AMA rehearsal for a few minutes yesterday, but then were quickly ushered out:
For about five minutes, this reporter was allowed to write notes from a cushy blue chair in the audience during Lambert’s rehearsal, watching as dancers sashayed across the floor in spangly harem pants, leotards with torn tights and in one particular eye-catching costume, leather pants topped off with a few leather suspender-straps and silvery chains on an otherwise bare-chested male dancer. A Lambert performance, we were reminded, is not a place for demure displays of postmodern dance. As for the panther himself, he took a few leisurely leaps to various levels of scaffolding, singing into a phantom mic and writhing with whatever dancer was around. On the top level of the scaffolding, a band of indeterminate numbers played keyboards, a flying V guitar and other gadgets, all of which collude to formulate the glam-rock pyramid that Lambert mightily prays to on a seemingly daily basis.
I’m sure there will be a few more reports today, I’ll post them here when they are available. Also, check out the preview I posted last night from ABC news HERE.
The American Music Awards will be broadcast Sunday, November 22 on ABC. I’ll be live-blogging, of course!
