Lea Michele Really Wants to Sing with Adam Lambert

Lea Michele, who plays the star-bound songstress Rachel, on the breakout Fox hit Glee,   tells MTV News that she really, really, really wants to sing with Adam Lambert.

Exclusive: Burnett Inducts Chenoweth, Duet with Michele

“I love Adam Lambert! I want to sing with him so badly, ” she said. “If they don’t let me [sing with him] on the show, I would just in life. I just want to sing with him so badly. He’s just such an incredible vocal performer, and I’m such a huge fan.

“I feel like I’d be getting to work out at the gym with the best trainer in the world, ” she continued. “You want to work out with someone who’s ripped and is going to train you well. That’s what I think about when I think of Adam Lambert. I just think he’s awesome.”

Cory Monteith, sitting next to Lea as she gushes, deadpans, “Lea, just tell Adam Lambert what you feel.” Cory, who plays Finn, the high school football star turned gleekster, thinks Adam is pretty talented too. “He’s a really terrific singer, ” says Cory.

If Glee co-creator, Ryan Murphy gets his way, Adam will appear in a cameo in an upcoming Glee episode.   But Adam told Ryan Seacrest last week on his radio show, that he hasn’t heard anything official from the show yet.

  1. I love how much Lea Michele loves Adam, but I thought it was a little awkward for Cory Monteith, since he’s the one she usually sings with. He took it well though.

    I’m really curious about Adam’s iTunes ranking because his popularity bar is very low compared to the tracks around FYE.

  2. Don’t do it adam. you soldout enough already

    Soldout? I am not sure what you mean?

  3. Being on Glee is selling out??? That’s a head scratcher. And saying that he has sold out is an even bigger head scratcher *shrugs*

  4. Oh Lea, I hope so, because I would LOVE to hear you and Adam sing together!

  5. I really hope he does get to sing with her somehow, preferably on Glee but any context will do–she’s such an incredible singer. If you guys haven’t checked her out on the Spring Awakening cast recording, you should–I think it shows off her voice even more than the Glee songs do.

    But her enthusiasm is really sweet, as are Cory’s lower-key interjections. :)

  6. yeah this thread isn’t huge yet!!!!!!!

    ummmm…i don’t like glee.I like it,but for you for me dawg,now it’s just overrated.plus, I don’t love the singing.someof the jokes on the show are kinda funny though.

    but..more Adam music? and GUSHING about Adam?! well,call me a gleek…..

    yes,I’m easy…

  7. It would be nice to see the video. I live in Canada and don’t have access to it.

  8. If it was good enough for Kristin Chenowith….

    Seriously, it’s a HUGE show. It just came out with its first album It has something like 10 songs in the iTunes Top 100 pop (and some on the Hot 100). It will come on right after Idol (TIE-IN!). I think he’ll play some kind of interesting character (ala Kristin–I keep thinking it’s Finn’s long lost-brother or Sue’s long-lost son…lol), and it will be a fun one-off. Or…he’ll play Adam’s doppleganger. Some shy guy who is afraid to sing and they urge him to and suddenly, voila, he can do it! (Plus he has to dye his hair back to strawberry blond, woot).

    So, yeah, it’s a primo gig, the producers want him (per an article in EW), Lea wants it, I hope Adam wants it, so on with the show!

    Thank God iTunes is finally functioning again…epic fail is back on track.

  9. Still not feeling good about Adam on Glee. sorry, jmo. Seems like putting Mick Jagger in Disneyland, just not a good fit. But that’s just me. I guess it is kind of like the look Adam got when asked if he was going to do a Christmas album, like HUH?

  10. “Adam is ripped and he’s gonna train you well…”

    Oh, the visuals…

  11. Lea Michele is an amazing vocalist and it would be great to see Adam on Glee just for the sheer fabulousness of seeing the two of them sing together. that’s a duet I’m sure I would enjoy. Plus, I think I would enjoy any Kurt/Adam interactions as well.

    I guess iTunes fixed their ratings system. Nice to see Adam’s single climbing the charts. I am not surprised.

  12. No Adam — do not do Glee!!

    And no duet with Madonna either. If you want to do a campy-fun duet, then duet with Cher or Elton John.

    And, if you are going to duet with someone — how about Matt Bellamy (Muse) or Christiana A. or … I have think of dozenes of better choices.

    Or better yet — How about David Bowie + Queen + Adam – “Under Pressure”.

  13. 48 is pretty decent for someone that doesn’t even have a banner…..

    i still hate you iTunes….

  14. Still not feeling good about Adam on Glee. sorry, jmo. Seems like putting Mick Jagger in Disneyland, just not a good fit. But that’s just me. I guess it is kind of like the look Adam got when asked if he was going to do a Christmas album, like HUH?

    Lest we forget, Adam was on American Idol for goodness sake! I think Glee is a perfect fit for him and I hope, hope, hope he goes on. My favorite episode so far was when Kristin Chenowith was on. I’d say if it was okay with her (and Josh Groban) it should be okay for Adam!

  15. This is so cute! I hope Adam sees it. I’d love to see him on Glee. :)

  16. 48 is pretty decent for someone that doesn’t even have a banner…..

    i still hate you iTunes….

    even though I’m THRILLED it’s #48,I wish it had a banner….

  17. I guess it is kind of like the look Adam got when asked if he was going to do a Christmas album, like HUH?”

    That was hilarious! Then he ends with “I’m a Jew!”

  18. FYE is going the wrong way :( – but TFM has moved up a couple of spots

  19. I think it’s unlikely that Adam is going to turn down any offers to be on TV right now. If Glee offers Adam an opportunity to cameo in an episode, I’m sure he’ll take. It’s a totally campy show that does not take itself very seriously. Sounds like someone we know…..

  20. This is so cute! I hope Adam sees it. I’d love to see him on Glee.

    Sueb will take care of that.

  21. Is iTunes for sure fixed? I see it at #48, but when I refresh the list it’s nowhere to be found.

  22. I don’t watch Glee but I will if Adam is on. Wherever he is – I’m there
    I think I-Tunes is still screwed up. FYE is at #48, but with only 1 or 2 bars – less than any song around it. Yet when I rated it earlier it had a full line of bars!

  23. Or better yet ‘” How about David Bowie + Queen + Adam ‘“ ‘Under Pressure’ .

    Oh yeah, Q3, this would be INCREDIBLE!

  24. Sounds like someone we know’ ¦..

    actually,we don’t know him. nevertheless , good point…..

  25. I hope Adam sees this, as she seemed so sweetly sincere. I would love to see them duet at some charity or fundraiser event. Just not Glee.

  26. Interesting…well, RS loves Adam, so…

    FYE is no longer on the iTunes pop chart’s albums (WTG, iTunes, but it’s at #24).

    Actor-singing-Adam-yep. It works for me. And it’s campy. Why not?

  27. EEEEEEEEK!!!

    days until the best album ever,FOR…YOUR…ENTERTAINMENT!!!!

    16  days, 8  hours, 9  minutes and 29  seconds

  28. This is so cute! I hope Adam sees it. I’d love to see him on Glee.

    Sueb will take care of that.

    Yeah, my people will call his people…

    Oh, ITA. Adam’s going in a totally different direction.

    Lest we forget, Adam was on American Idol for goodness sake! I think Glee is a perfect fit for him and I hope, hope, hope he goes on. My favorite episode so far was when Kristin Chenowith was on. I’d say if it was okay with her (and Josh Groban) it should be okay for Adam!

    Adam has been distancing himself from AI since the show ended. Even his tour performances screamed “Not AI!!!”

    And although I have the highest regard for Chenowith and Groban– I don’t see Adam being a natural fit with them, not now, anyway.
    He’s made it quite clear that the Broadway thing is on the back burner for now.

    Now I’m ducking because I see a bunch of people coming my way to club me on the head… :)

    EEEEEEEEK!!!

    16 days, 8 hours, 9 minutes and 29 seconds

    I’ll eeeeek with ya luv, can’t believe it just over 2 weeks away. Wowee.

  31. I just added larger scans of Kris & Allison to Adam’s Elle photo post
    http://littleglitterlittleglam.blogspot.com/

    Glee may be a little too goofy & campy for many people, but there is no denying the popularity of that show. Depending on how Adam would be brought in to an episode, it could be a great opportunity, or, not. I think the Glee people would know what to do with him, same as they did Kristen Chenowith (sp?)

  32. I’ve heard Adam mentioned in three interviews today. Roger Taylor gives him the highest praise, Amanda Peet says she loves, loves Adam, and now Lea. We Adam fans are in good company.

  33. Q3 Or better yet ‘” How about David Bowie + Queen + Adam ‘“ ‘Under Pressure’ .

    THIS I would love to see!

  34. Adam has been distancing himself from AI since the show ended. Even his tour performances screamed ‘Not AI!!!’ 

    Well, maybe if he was joining the cast of Glee, I’d agree.
    But appearing as a guest star in one episode of a very popular show that features singers…not getting the angst about it.

    It’s there. #48 in the Singles section, where it should be. FIBOY is #118, LLWD, #118 and TfM #151

  36. ita glamatheart :)

    the show’s popular ,it would be a great idea,get Adam some publicity,when(possibly!!) everyone forgets about him…

    bye g2g 2 rl…

  37. As far as Adam going on Glee, I think he is getting so many offers, his people are probably turning down a lot of things. It depends on what else is out there for Adam, whether it is good for his career, exposure, etc.

  38. He’s not going to be a member of Glee. He will play a character. Maybe a Glampire? ;) I think Glee would not how to bring him into the show if they didn’t have a good role for him. And it would be silly for him to say no, b/c it’s a great way to be seen (IMO). There are all sorts of facets of Adam; why not see what he could do on a show like Glee w/ a one-off.

  39. Well, maybe if he was joining the cast of Glee, I’d agree.
    But appearing as a guest star in one episode of a very popular show that features singers’ ¦not getting the angst about it.

    No angst, glamatheart, just an opinion… like yours.

  40. Don’t do it adam. you soldout enough already

    He was on American Idol, the only thing more sellout than that, would be something like those celebrity rehab programs, or “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.” Glee is a very hip show, actually.

  41. Now I’m ducking because I see a bunch of people coming my way to club me on the head’ ¦ ”

    No way aloha! Everyone is entitled to their opinion!

    I think if he does “do” Glee, he could just be himself. And I think it would be really fun. The show is seriously popular right now.

  42. Of course, adamaloha. Sorry if that came off more snippy than I intended. I just really love Glee and Adam, so I wanna see it happen!

  43. I have to agree with Lea, Adam is probably one of the top (if not THE TOP) vocalist on the music scene today. Every songwriter and music producer he has worked with has gushed nothing but compliments on his vocal abilities. Should Adam do Glee?? Absolutely. He should seriously consider every opportunity offered to him right now to put his face, acting and singing talents out before the world to solidify his place in the entertainment industry.

  44. I think if he does ‘do’  Glee, he could just be himself. And I think it would be really fun. The show is seriously popular right now.

    If he does do Glee, I will set aside my angst :) make some popcorn, and settle down in front of the wide screen.

  45. I can’t edit to work properly.
    I wanted to add– no worries Glamatheart– we’re all here for the fun of it, right?? :lol:

  46. Excellent aloha!! If we weren’t an ocean apart, I’d join you!

    But wait! we will be able to convene here, on MJ’s that night! You know the Glee thread on Adam cameo night would generate, what, maybe 500-700 comments?

  47. I’d love to see Adam on GLEE. There are any number of hilarious roles they could think up for him.

    Not to mention, look how sweet and earnest Lea Michele is about Adam. I think it’s kind of brave of her to put herself out there like that, and I’d like to see it rewarded.

    Thanks, austin, for the iTunes info.

  48. I wanted to add’“ no worries Glamatheart’“ we’re all here for the fun of it, right??

    You got it! :-)

  49. I’ve pictured Adam playing himself on Glee, giving moral support to those who are different. I see him as a good example for the unpopular kids.

  50. I think it is a perfect fit- Adam was those people. He literally was the weirdo, glee club guy. He was Kurt.

    Adam has always made such a point of telling geeks and dweebs to hang in there and go after what feels right to you. I think that if it is at all possible he would do it in a heartbeat- playing himself.

    They could all go to an Adam concert and end up doing an impromptu acapella number in his dressing room.

  51. Ok, you sold me. I could see Adam on Glee IF he goes on as himself. Lots of ways to work that.

  52. If he does Glee, I would like to see him cast as a former graduate who became famous on a national talent show who comes back to mentor the team and he sees himself in Kurt which in turn boosts Kurt’s ego.

    If he played a character this is the scenario I would like.

  53. Yeah, I just don’t want it to be too corny. Ironic, yes. Corny, no. That is why I thought it might be interesting for him to play a character. I love Sue. I want him to have some scenes with her. He could take her on any minute.

  54. If he does Glee, I would like to see him cast as a former graduate who became famous on a national talent show who comes back to mentor the team and he sees himself in Kurt which in turn boosts Kurt’s ego.

    In other words, plays himself.
    I think that is by far the best way to bring him in.
    His own self is far better than any character they could write for him, anyway

    Oh yes- he would rip Sue to SHREDS!!.

  55. I have never watched Glee before, so I don’t have any opinion whether Adam should or shouldn’t be on the show. But one thing for sure though, if Adam is on the show, then I’ll be watching the show, and if I like it, I might keep watching it. I guess the show can get more viewers that way.

  56. Buderschnookie,

    Your idea’s so good! I would love to see Adam playing himself and inspiring “Kurt” (that young actor is hysterical).

  57. Q3 :No Adam ‘” do not do Glee!!

    And no duet with Madonna either. If you want to do a campy-fun duet, then duet with Cher or Elton John.

    And, if you are going to duet with someone ‘” how about Matt Bellamy (Muse) or Christiana A. or ‘ ¦ I have think of dozenes of better choices.

    Or better yet ‘” How about David Bowie + Queen + Adam ‘“ ‘Under Pressure’ .

    You’re a scholar and a visionary and I’m humbled in your presence.
    class

  58. It’s been a slow 2 Adam news days.

    ADAM! Do something, would ya?

    that’s what she said

    sorry ;)

    see,this is why I NEED Adam news….

  59. Oh no-I just had a horrible image of Adam and Lea Michele singing “Slow Ride”.

  60. Kanadie Bonttell, thank you for that.

    Don’t anyone shoot me, but i absolutely LOVE all aspects of that look!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE….

  61. Kanadie Bonttell, thank you for that.

    Don’t anyone shoot me, but i absolutely LOVE all aspects of that look!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE’ ¦.

    me too:)

  62. Adam would be MUCH higher than 48 on iTunes, but he used up his first big week of sales before iTunes even listed him. Have no idea why they chose not to release to iTunes immediately.

  63. Check out Adams hair’ ¦and don’t over look the poneytail’ ¦’ ¦!

    Huh?

  64. the itunes feed appears to be frozen again. Mine is saying as of 12 hours ago and it’s stuck there.

  65. Wow, I cannot believe how much a really love that look- the whole hair vibe, the awesome outfit, the makeup- every.single.thing about it

    I would like to see him rock this look out in public for a performance or red carpet like the AMA’s red carpet……

  66. http://www.tvguidemagazine.com/news/adam-lambert-talks-new-album-3125.html

    Check out Adams hair’ ¦and don’t over look the ponytail’ ¦’ ¦!

    WTF? LOL this actually caught me off-guard a little bit and I actually has to tilt my head a bit…hes very intent on pushing the visual/sexual boundaries..
    btw have you guys seen the latest tweets b/t him and kris? they are hilarious…he seems to have a bit of a spelling problem…(he also clears uo the rumor that hes dating ferras)
    as far as Glee, well I understand this chicks enthusiasms and I salute her..I think it would bring more ratings to the show because I dont watch Glee but I would if Adam makes an appearance :)

  67. No one has more hair looks than Adam. It’s time for him to sell his own hair and makeup line (srsly).

    That is very cool to get a short interview with TV Guide Magazine.

    I watch Glee already, but if he is on, I will tape it and watch it frequently As squirrely knows, I have all of S8, beginning with Top 36, on my DVR. Glee will take its rightful place alongside them (and, of course the AMAs, Oprah, and Ellen/Letterman). I actually don’t care what he plays. I trust the producers and of course Adam.

  68. Kanadie, thank you for posting this! You should put it over in headlines too. What a gorgeous photo – LOVE what they did with his hair, even without the fun ponytail! Just beautiful.

  69. suebrody, we all need to tell Adam how much we like this look (that is, if you like it)—

  70. That’s his emo t-shirt. God, it’s sad I know that. What a hot look for him. Samurai!Adam works for me. I like pretty much every picture of him except the one on the FYE cover, naturally.

    CHOOSE GLEE! CHOOSE GLEE! I’m not skeered!

  71. Love the pic. He is very photogenic!!

    That pic is hot! I think it’s my new favorite

  72. Adam has been distancing himself from AI since the show ended. Even his tour performances screamed ‘Not AI!!!’ 

    I completely agree…Adam is really (to me anyways) the exception to the rule when it comes to Idol…hes even said himself in interviews that he was initially confused by ppls positive reaction(s) to him…
    as far him being a “sell out” I dont think its fair to label him that…he is someone who above all stays true to who he is and his artistic vision and hes a smart guy, he wants to market himself well and appeal to as many ppl as possible…he is not the stereotypical “rock star” rather he has the talent and none of the bad attitude/cockyness and self-destructive behavior which I think is a great thing. Hes a personable guy who just wants to share his talent with the world and there is certainly room for him…and whoever isnt embracing him is missing out imho but hey to each his own.

  73. Haha I can’t believe people are reacting negatively to Adam potentially being on Glee. It is a fun entertaining show, and isn’t that exactly the kind of music Adam wants to make? He is certainly not too serious of an artist coming from American Idol lol! Besides, Glee songs constantly hit the top ten on itunes shortly after they are released, something I’m sure Adam would have loved to see happen to FYE…

  74. You get to write the episode, sparkles. ;) Tweet Lea and see what she thinks. Dunno if the producers are on Twitter, tho. Yes, that episode was beautiful.

    Okay, yeah, I tweeted Adam about his Samurai!Hair. Two thumbs up.

  75. and don’t over look the ponytail’ ¦’ ¦!
    Ponytail? Am I missing something, as in are there more pics? Or by ponytail do you mean the flippy thing on the left side of Adam’s head?

    No he actually has a ponytail..I am sure it is clip on, but it is hanging down his body Yeah on the left hand side..

  76. yeah, celebrate every spin:

    Lisa_Gordon @adamlambert I requested FYE all day and my fav DJ finally answered my prayers. First time played here. Daytona Beach 103.3 The Vibe. less than a minute ago from web

  77. Ponytail? Am I missing something, as in are there more pics? Or by ponytail do you mean the flippy thing on the left side of Adam’s head?

    Look down his chest. It took me a minute to see it too.

    Thanks, I just looked again, missed it the first time. Sh*t. How hot is that?

  79. I never comment on articles, but had to to say that I thought the look was Smokin’

    Just saw the ponytail. I love you, Adam.

    Androgeny. He keeps getting prettier.

  81. Ponytail, but no way samurai. They shave the top of their heads, or I believe, have ponytails on top? I’ll have to research that. They definitely don’t have that flippy thing in the front, tho.

    Wow, tho. Can he be any better-looking? Hot, hot, hot.

  82. Hawt photo! Dang ponytails never look like that on me! It is smokin on him.

  83. Ok, I listened to Roger Taylor for the third time. He did say “It could happen.” So a possible concert with Queen/Adam.

  84. Ponytail, but no way samurai. They shave the top of their heads, or I believe, have ponytails on top? I’ll have to research that. They definitely don’t have that flippy thing in the front, tho.

    Some of the samurai anime has heroes with this ponytail style. Try Rurouni Kenshin.

  85. wonder if it was that awful Soundcheck?

    RFMX @VicStiX Walmart had @adamlambert on the TVs half a minute ago from mobile web

  86. nnadinola, we have already started squeeing & flailing here and on twitter– we are all in agreement so far- HAWT….

  87. It’s so funny–whenever a new photo of Adam comes out there are always people who declare the new photo is now their favorite photo of him . . . until the next new photo.

    I’m the same way. Adam is a never ending source of entertainment! I used to live in Tokyo (and visit the Harajuku area frequently), and this photo doesn’t really remind me of the Harajuku look–it has a contemporary Samurai vibe. Very cool. Adam could rock the Harajuku style though.

    Waiting for the next new favorite photo!!!

  88. Adam and Glee, oh another arrow in Matty G.’s heart. He has a crush on Lea. My scenario, Matty G. guests on the show maybe as a sub teacher. He teaches them a mash up and it has a dream sequence where Lea imagines she is with Adam.

    Okay, I know it’s pretty silly but that’s the best I’ve got. 8)

  89. LOL, KLI.
    Edit’s not working for me but I just read your post above mine! So funny, so true!

  90. So where are we on the roller coaster ride? I gotta a feeling we just started the slow creaky ascent.

  91. adamisthemanfan:…”sell out”…I dont think its fair to label him that’ ¦he is someone who above all stays true to who he is and his artistic vision…

    In an effort to be as positive as possible, Im only critical of questionable public appearances he could have avoided, thereby maintaining a brief smoke of exclusivity and enigma to his name. He could be more selective and strategic and feed wonder with coolness in a mystic realm like the wonders of the earth. Details mag, to name one. I’ll write it off as rookie mistake. So Glee? Please?!?

    I’m with Q3, what she said. Thats the route he should take when opportunity knocks.

  92. Some of the samurai anime has heroes with this ponytail style. Try Rurouni Kenshin.

    I’ll take your word for it. All I know is he is really rockin the hotness.

  93. I don’t know why so many people think that if Adam’s in it has to do with Kurt being in love with him or something along those lines. Also I don’t think that Adam should have a scene with Sue, He doesn’t have the comedic timing she does and she’d rip him to shreds. Anyway the best storyline I could predict would have Adam just having a small cameo of Rachel dreaming about being a huge star and her being in concert and then does a duet with Adam as himself, not big, but a few lines and a musical number is plenty.

  94. I get so disgusted by some of the comments the populace at large makes about Adam on these news websites (e.g. most recent article link). What’s the matter with people? All the dress up is for fun. If you don’t like it, look elsewhere. I grew up with Madonna and Prince. Adam really shouldn’t be that much of a shock to the system. (Just to clarify, I’m not talking about posters on this blog, of course).

    Enough complaining!! Is there a second Samurai Adam photo yet?

  95. LOL, KLI.
    Edit’s not working for me but I just read your post above mine! So funny, so true!

    I guess my timing was impeccable!! LOL. I think somebody else already declared it their new favorite too.

    It’s definitely at the top of my list. HAWT!

  96. I grew up with Madonna and Prince. Adam really shouldn’t be that much of a shock to the system.

    You know, artists are so correct these days. They have to be provocative and tasteful at the same time. I remember Madonna and Prince dressing really weirdly and being very tasteless. The public didn’t always go wow for everything they did…

  97. saga I chuckle, the public didn’t go wild for the Beatles look or most anyone from the 60’s. They get over it.

  98. Also I don’t think that Adam should have a scene with Sue, He doesn’t have the comedic timing she does and she’d rip him to shreds.

    Not according to Neil, who has often remarked on Adam’s abilities as regards ripping new ones. Not a doubt in my mind that his verbal jousting is wicked.
    Anyway, it’s called acting :)

  99. Not according to Neil, who has often remarked on Adam’s abilities as regards ripping new ones. Not a doubt in my mind that his verbal jousting is wicked.

    Isn’t there that story Neil posted on his blog about how when the two of them were fighting over something in the car Adam managed to get the last word in and verbally beat him. I just looked on Neil’s blog, but it doesn’t seem to be posted anymore.

    Hah . . . . old times.

  100. I agree with some you have stated Adam should play himself if he indeeds does a cameo.


    Maybe Adam is on tour and visits their town and some of the kids are going to the show.
    They could effect a duet with cut shots like they did with the Kristin Chenoweth/Lea Michele duet, that way Lea or whomever could sing ‘with’ him and after the concert they could wait by the exit door and Adam could pass by and say something like ‘stay true to yourself’ ‘be original thats what makes you special’ and make a point of being really nice to all the kids…cameo.

    If not a full on character like suggested as a alum of the school or visiting mentor or SUBSTITUE TEACHER, yeah that would be cool…

  101. I have no suggestion for a Glee storyline for him because I know nothing about the show. All I want to say is that photo from TV Guide – HOLY SMOKE! If this isn’t one of People Mag’s sexiest men alive I don’t know who is.

    Check out Adams hair’ ¦and don’t over look the ponytail’ ¦’ ¦!

    Oh my….that is just the hottest i’ve seen him…..wow!
    I knew Lea Michele loved Adam because she only follows 13 people (last time i checked) on facebook, and one of them is Adam. I think it would be awesome for him to be on the show! Glee is so full of snark and so un-PC – he could have a blast with it!

  103. Not according to Neil, who has often remarked on Adam’s abilities as regards ripping new ones. Not a doubt in my mind that his verbal jousting is wicked.
    Anyway, it’s called acting

    I didn’t say he doesn’t have any comedic timing. Jane lynch a front runner for the comedy best supporting actress emmy and is arguably the best comedic actor on television right now. Sure Adam may be able to give some good comebacks but I have no doubt that he would be crushed in a verbal showdown with her.

  104. Ok, I need to know more about the People’s Mag sexiest men alive stuff. Is there a list? or a place to vote? anyone have info? I seem to have missed something again….

  105. Adam could be:

    Long lost love child of Jane Lynch. (Can’t remember if someone else said that days ago. Well, “steal from the best” is a TV development motto)

    Or the leader of some Whiffenpoofs level guy’s school chorus. Like skills way beyond Anoop’s group. Rich guys in white tie and tails who sizzle out numbers acapella.

    Or another long lost classmate of Kristen/Shu’s who was dumpy and shy and too shunned even for Glee so didn’t even try out back in the day and is now, what? A Rock Star! And all the kids and all the teachers of every persuasion follow him around sighing in lust/love. But he helps other shunned kids find themselves.

    Meanwhile, Lea Michele going on and on about “you really want to sing with the best” in front of her current partner had a certain “and you’re no Adam to it

    ETA: Oops. broke my rule about not posting before reading comments. And now see many greater minds than mine already swimming those seas. Instant karma gonna get you. Also edit function. Which wonky

  106. I meant to say Lea only follows 13 people on Twitter.

    And have I mentioned that tv guide picture is HOTTTTT?!?!

    What’s with all the nicey-nice scenarios of Adam on Glee? Glee is not a nice show. Chenowith wasn’t nice – Groban wasn’t nice – I want Adam to be a snarky smart ass! ;)

  107. Sure Adam may be able to give some good comebacks but I have no doubt that he would be crushed in a verbal showdown with her.

    You do realize that Sue is a character and not a real person, and that she only reads lines that writers give her…?

  108. You do realize that Sue is a character and not a real person, and that she only reads lines that writers give her

    WTF? I was trying to say that yeah he could have some good comedic timing but nowhere up to her level and second it’s more then the lines when it comes to a verbal showdown on tvshow, it’s about the timing and the expressions while delivering them . .

  109. Meanwhile, Lea Michele going on and on about ‘you really want to sing with the best’  in front of her current partner had a certain ‘and you’re no Adam to it

    Well, you’ve got to admit, he’s not that great a singer. He looks good, though!

  110. The TVGUIDE pic is SMOKINNNN HOT…..he is gorgeous. Re Glee- I think Adam should play himself and Lea should play the fantard gushing person that she is. She could even play a streaker in a turguoise bra.

  111. Isn’t there that story Neil posted on his blog about how when the two of them were fighting over something in the car Adam managed to get the last word in and verbally beat him. I just looked on Neil’s blog, but it doesn’t seem to be posted anymore.

    I printed that blog out the day it was discovered as I knew it would disappear. Rightfully so. I think it was there for a while, sans the comment from Neil’s and Adam’s Uncle who cursed out Neil to the Nth degree for acting like such a sh*t on Thankgiving.

  112. She could even play a streaker in a red bra.

    The streaker at Adam’s homecoming had a turquoise bra.

  113. Oh my, that TV guide photo, too gorgeous! very Japanesque, my new desk top, also, wanted to comment about “Adam not being a great speller”, that’s not unusual with remarkably creative people, who also just happen to be very articulate and intelligent speakers, my daughter who is an amazing artist and screen writer, also is a not so great speller, yet, she is in the top 2% of the United States in Language comprehensive and writing skills according to all testing in school, and could write anything she wanted to phonetically before she started school- also, I think Adam’s ‘fianlly’ was a typo, sometimes the fingers just do what they want to.

    nnadinola, we have already started squeeing & flailing here and on twitter’“ we are all in agreement so far- HAWT’ ¦.”

    I’ve been squeeing and flailing since I first saw him

  115. Well, you’ve got to admit, he’s not that great a singer. He looks good, though!

    I don’t think they intended him to have an Adam lambert level voice. Remember, he is suppose to be football player who fell into it.

  116. “Ok, I need to know more about the People’s Mag sexiest men alive stuff. Is there a list? or a place to vote? anyone have info? I seem to have missed something again’ ¦.”

    I was curious about this also, does anyone know who made up the list…was it the editors of the mag. or was there a public vote

  117. Okay, without sounding to out of the loop! When is the AMA show?

  118. I don’t watch much TV so for me it doesn’t matter. I am sure for Adam it would be good. I finally picked my favorite snip from his album.. Sure Fire Winners!! :-) Now to hear all of the song.. lol

  119. Calling suebrody, been gone all day, just checked iTunes I see Adam made the overall list #59 and pop list #24 is this going well? I have a good feeling, want to know what you think?

  120. Yeah. LA Times pic much better than TV Guide. He at least looks like a man in the LA Times pic. In the TV Guide pic he looked too young.

    Cayman, you are optimistic! #59 is not good at all. C’mon people, who hasn’t bought FYE from iTunes yet? I know some people have already bought it from AO and Amazon, but iTunes’s number is important. Gosh, I don’t feel good at all.

  122. Love the TV guide photo .. I can even forgive him the ponytail seeing as the rest of the pic is so hot .. it’s very quiffy

    Robbie Williams has just premiered the video for his latest single “You Know Me” .. and it has a White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland theme to it .. as soon as I saw it I thought of Adam’s “Down The Rabbit Hole” …lol

  123. Calling suebrody, been gone all day, just checked iTunes I see Adam made the overall list #59 and pop list #24 is this going well? I have a good feeling, want to know what you think?

    It is actually #48 in overall charts

  124. LLWD is 199 on Itunes Canada, however Hedley is 14 Cha-Ching….:-)

  125. i havent heard the song once on the radio. i have it on my ipod and listen to it non stop. its such a great song, why wont they play it?

    i love lea michelle and glee…adam being on that show would be pure heaven!!

  126. When Adam sings the sex filled lyrics “give you fever, fever”, “i’m a heat seeker when I’m full of desire”, “can you handle what I’m bout to do”, and “It’s like I can’t even feel after the way you touch me”…. I won’t care what he looks like as I will have melted into a pile of goo.

    I actually love his hair in the TV Guide pic. He looks more glamorous in the TV Guide pic I think.

  127. Read somewhere that the charts have been frozen for more than half a day.

  128. I could have sworn when I got home tonight it was #59 in the overall chart, so if it is #48 it has gone up! dietcoke (my fav drink)I still have that “good feeling” that by this time tomorrow FYE will see the 20’s. NO I’m not on drugs, just trying to keep the faith. Since this is my first year following a new artist, and you said it was not a good sign what should it be now?

  129. These charts are/have been so messed up the past few days it’s hard to tell. TfM hit #4 within 24 hours.

  130. He’s not in the top 50 anymore on the live feed chart.

    I haven’t seen Glee at all but I’d watch it if Adam turned up on it!

  131. OhMyRawrrr

    11/06/2009 at 6:11 pm
    Glee is so full of snark and so un-PC ‘“ he could have a blast with it!

    Glee is not a nice show. Chenowith wasn’t nice ‘“ Groban wasn’t nice ‘“ I want Adam to be a snarky smart ass!

    OhMyRawrrr, I’m glad someone else is watching the same show that I am! Yeah, it’s campy and cute, but if that’s all it was I wouldn’t be watching. It’s a VERY un-PC satire with a lot of snark, sarcasm, and dark twisted humor . . . in other (British) words: it takes the piss!

  132. Back. *waving*

    Well…with HOT TOUR ADAM (Elvis!Adam on the side; not so much) #1 on EW Magazine’s Must List (Congrats to Adam Shankman–the Shankman is #3), I am feeling a tad better. But I would like to see more movement of FYE. I know there are a lot of ppl who are less concerned than I am; just need more exposure, b/c the adds seem to be coming slowly.

    More in a bit. And yeah, I think Adam could spar with Sue. I mean, Will did; if he could, Adam’s character could.

    Haha, I am a bit of a worrier. TFM got to top 10 within 24 hours. I just couldn’t believe FYE will do poorer than TFM. I understand a lot of fans have already bought the song from Amazon and AO, but I am hoping fans would cough up $1.29 again to get the song from iTunes. Of course, that is my wishful thinking. I know time is tough and budgets are tight. I am just nervous for Adam. Remember how we were saying for sure his “real” single will outsell TFM by a mile? I just can’t imagine the ugliness if it doesn’t. I really hope iTunes is messed up and his numbers are actually good.

    Oh, dietcoke is my fav soda too! :)

  134. Arrrrgggghhh! Now the edit box shows half a display! I wanted to add:

    So I don’t see it as too Disney or g-rated (or AI) for Adam . . . just good exposure on a popular show and an opportunity to show off his singing and acting chops . . . and yes, his comedic timing for the those that apparently didn’t see Best Week Ever.

  135. I bought it from AO and have no intention of buying it from ITUNES. I don’t need the song twice. It has nothing to do with a tight budget for me. It’s just a waste of $1.29. If Mgmt were so concerned with ITUNES numbers, they shouldn’t have put it on AO first. JMO.

    I really think people are stressing over nothing. TMF had a big banner on ITUNES, and other promo. Adam did Ryan’s show but that’s about it. Also, FYE is alot different than TFM. I think it is rare for a song to go racing up the charts nowadays unless you’re an established artist (Britney, etc.). Adam may seem like he’s established to us but he is really a new artist in the industry. Same as Kris and Allison.

    Honestly, I think Adam would be telling us all to chill out and enjoy the music instead of fretting over any movement his single may or may not be doing.

  136. Okay, still here. I saw that Hedley video before–hilarious! Very Weezer-like. I want Adam to make a really funny video (I mean, srsly, how not to with FYE? He’s not going serious S&M, and he already did angsty with TfM, which I adore, for the record). I remain concerned about FYE, although iTunes has been seriously f**ked up, only b/c you want ppl to be interested. However, what is of greater concern to me is airplay, and I just do not hear enough of it, though it is on KISS 108 (Boston)’s hot page, but is still not getting played.

    There are so many potentials for Adam storylines. Waiting to hear back from Lea, whom I follow, lol

    And I still do not see a ponytail, but he does look FINE in the LA Times article. That said, my two favorite looks are:

    emo hair!Adam from TfM; and
    Rocker!Adam (with emo hair, not bouffant) from Tour, as seen on EW’s The Must List (YES YES YES YES YES).

    #48 is beginning to depress the hell out of me…

  137. and yes, his comedic timing for the those that apparently didn’t see Best Week Ever.

    He was so great in that! And didn’t they say that he did it all in the first take without much prep time? If I’m remembering that right.

    Honestly, I think Adam would be telling us all to chill out and enjoy the music instead of fretting over any movement his single may or may not be doing.

    I think you’re right.

    #48 is beginning to depress the hell out of me’ ¦

    Me too. :( I am really trying to chill and relax though. Will try harder. :)

  139. However, what is of greater concern to me is airplay, and I just do not hear enough of it, though it is on KISS 108 (Boston)’s hot page, but is still not getting played.

    I know I read somewhere that the T40 radio stations won’t play new songs from new artists in regular rotation until they are in the Top 40.

    That’s why sales are important right now- to boost it into the Top 40.

  140. I think people are waiting to buy the whole album. That’s my plan. I bought TFM because I didn’t think it would be on the album. I will probably do both Itunes as well as purchase the CD to get the artwork and the Itunes bonus bunny track. But I have decided to wait and I haven’t downloaded FYE. It is my prediction that Adam, being a futuristic throwback (oxymoron, I know but that’s what he is!) is really going to an be ALBUM artist . . and in the end, that gives you much more longevity.

  141. #48 doesn’t depress me at all. For sure he made sales at AO and amazon (though it’s hard to explain to people who only considers itunes as the only benchmark to see if the song is charting). The single is just one week old. Wait till he sings it at AMA and when he does full promotion. It’s better than being below the top 100.

  142. Adam is following his crush on Twitter – Tokio Hotel just opened a twitter account.

  143. The charts are busted again Adam is back at 59 which is where he was at the exact same time 12 hours ago. My feed is showing AM numbers.

  144. lol, squirrely. I didn’t really know Tokio Hotel until recently, but it’s time to follow them.

    Here is where Adam is on KIIS FM’s Hot 200 Playlist (Seacrest’s station):

    http://www.kiisfm.com/iplaylist/playlist.html?net=121

    He is #140. Not gonna jump and down around that, frankly. And if sales determines airplay, at this point FYE has a problem. I know it’s getting spins, but few stations have formally added it.

  145. But back to Glee: There are so many possibilities for Adam’s appearance. He has such comedic timing (as noted, BWE) that he could KILL. Whether he plays a doppleganger or some other character (I would give ANYTHING for him to be Sue’s long-lost son), this would be great exposure or Adam and probably a lot of fun. If the producers want him and one of the stars is massively crushing on Adam (she said this on The View as well, BTW) and it’s a very popular show with songs all over the iTunes 100, why isn’t this a win?

  146. Some good news, FYE was just played on the Mix in Chicago (huge HAC); I don’t know for sure, but this may have been it’s first spin.

    This station is notoriously slow to add and play songs by new artists.

  147. Some good news, FYE was just played on the Mix in Chicago (huge HAC); I don’t know for sure, but this may have been it’s first spin.

    Can’t believe I missed that. Did Kiss FM spin FYE?

    Mix is not in iheartradio app. urhhh

  148. Odd about the link…whassup, KIIS?!

    What is iheartradio app?

  149. I’m gonna keep my fingers crossed for this, after listening to the Glee soundtrack with the full earphones experience, definitely Lea is by far my favorite singer on the show. Her voice is sweet, and I really enjoy the feeling she puts in her intonation.

    I don’t know if it makes me a total looser or one of the cool kids, but I’m adoring the soundtrack!

    The Adam cameo has to happen. Some things are just meant to, and this is one of them.

    Back to crossing my fingers…

  150. michaelsarver1

    RT @taylor_lambertt: @michaelsarver1 – Ive asked about 80 questions please answer – What do you think about Adam Lamberts single? (: love it1 minute ago from Echofon

    SCORE!!

    Goodnight, all. More Adam news tomorrow? Pretty please? Someone play him, I’m begging you!!!

  151. What is iheartradio app?

    it’s a iphone app to listen to radio.

    Regarding Mix, You can check out Mix’s recent plays here:

    http://www.tunegenie.com/onair/wtmx/

    It shows that FYE was played at 9:52 pm. You can expand the tags to listen to the songs online. However when you click the video for FYE, you will hear :25 TFM. urrrhhhh Fail!!! How could FYE sell if even the radio station confuses it with TFM?

  152. Sigh. Well, thanks for heartradio app. Time to purchase. Sadness on FYE. Maybe after the AMAs…one can only hope.

    G’night.

  153. I know it’s getting spins, but few stations have formally added it.

    I know……. I’m still waiting patiently here in Washington, D.C.
    So far, nothing! :(

  154. Could be that the reason for disappointing launch of the single is due to RCA’s A & R Exec’s departure from RCA to Columbia. Based on HDD he was charged with Adam’s album. Now with his impending departure, I think RCA is still reorganizing, thus slow addition to radio play lists of Adam’s single. It’s also, I think, going to delay Adam’s video launch.

  155. I would love to see Lea Michele sing with Adam Lambert. I just don’t know if he should be a character or himself. I bet they would make beautiful music together.

  156. everybody chill out.. after adam formally promote his single just like wat kris is doing then his single will make a difference in the chart. luk at kris, his single has been out for a long time now, and it just dis wik it begun to pick up, even if he has promoted it for a while now, have radio apperances and interviews, performed in different venue, when adam will be on his way to do those things too, then FYE will pick up. nwey, we have made him number 1 for how many days in amzon with zero promtion. so just chill out and have a break… dnt be so pessimist…

    Check out Adams hair’ ¦and don’t over look the ponytail’ ¦’ ¦!

    What shoot was this from?

    Wow! I absolutely love this photo. It has such a retro vibe, much like the FYE album. Maybe one from the collector’s edition picture book or the photos referenced in Ann Powers’ article http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-ca-adam-lambert8-2009nov08,0,3364352.story

    “The shots captured Lambert in typical glam-god poses: peacock, street tough, space oddity, freaky adventurer in the boudoir of the damned.’ 

  159. Adam’s new photos are so adorably edgy. He is stunning.

    At last FYE is showing up on the main iTunes Top 100 at #51
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/charts/songs/

    It seems like promotions for Adam’s single and album is just revving up before it kicks in full speed and crosses through the finish line ahead of everyone else. Hope this happens. It will. And an appearance in GLEE would be perfect. exposure for him.

    .

  160. Re Glee, Adam should be the coach for Vocal Adrenaline and therefore have a RECURRING role. And then he could be fierce as the competition.

  161. Oh wow, the Mix needs to change that audio. When you try to sample FYE it plays TfM. Anyway, glad to see it was played. Kris is doing really well there which just shows how beneficial it can be to do those radio sponsored concerts (he is doing Miracle Near State St.). I don’t think David Cook got significant play for LO on the station until, maybe February. I actually think it gets more play today than it did last November.

  162. Wow! I absolutely love this photo. It has such a retro vibe, much like the FYE album. Maybe one from the collector’s edition picture book or the photos referenced in Ann Powers’ article

    GaGaGlambert, that’s one of Warwick Saint’s (in NYC) superb photographs, along with both album pics I think, and one a little while back with a blue and white striped T-shirt (and ‘Michellin’ man). Can’t wait to see all the rest, presumably they will gradually appear here and there. This new one with the ‘stallion tail’ is my absolute favorite ‘fashion’ pic of Adam!

    Otherwise favorite looks so far 1) Details pics – for the very hetero-sexy, and 2) the way he looks in the TFM music video. Least fave – the original pics done for the Idols tour program, including that first awful pic that was up on Adamofficial.com

  163. Anyway, RCA/SONY has the real numbers (the missing piece of the puzzle) with sales from AO site. They must have had something in mind when they decided to give AO first shot sales. Maybe they wanted them to be kept quiet. Who knows. But if the album does not do well doesn’t that reflect on the songwriters and producers associated with it? Wouldn’t they be upset to be linked to a failure? I think TPTB know what they are doing and have a plan. Faith’ ¦

  164. Could be that the reason for disappointing launch of the single

    what “disappointing launch”????? The single is doing fine! it is getting increasing radio play, selling on itunes (and who knows how much more on AO and amazon), the reviews have been very positive (except for from the known adam haters who will hate any and everything he does)….this single is just getting started…I fully expect that over the next few weeks Adam will be doing all the radio interviews that everyone here is clamoring for, he will be all over the tv, spins will increase….the doom and gloom after one week is completely unfounded

  165. @Chicagolaw

    Grrr, I missed hearing it on the Mix! I emailed them the other day to see if they even had the single and if they would play it. They need to play it in the morning during the Eric and Kathy show since that is when they have the most listeners.

  166. adam is doing well. he just got number 1 on amazon b4 everything started. b4 FYE was availble in Itunes, u can download it from AO and amazon, dat is why is just gaining numbers now since most of us, has it already… just like wat ive sed, those who seems so negative thinker just chill out and have a break and get a kitkat…

  167. I’ve got to disagree with this advice to wait and give FYE time. The songs needs to at some point hit #1 on iTunes if it is to get radio play and a lot of sales. Which is the only way to ensure that Adam is picking up with the general public. FYE is exactly the type of song that should take with the general music buying public. Fans who bought it on Adam official have done Adam a disservice in a sense and should re-purchase it on Itunes so that it can chart higher there and be more visible to the general public.

    His upcoming performance of FYE at the AMAs has now become super important. B/c that is the only opportunity for FYE to get major promotion and hopefully it will re-enter the charts at that point. Or Adam is skrewed.

  168. y ur thinking adam will be screwed?dats the least u shud think off. just be positive enough… once adam got the exposure and pipol sees him prfroming the song, then everyone would know about it..he has not promoted it yet, (thats wat im thinking about). he just need to promote it to the public so that it would be known by others who are not AI fans. just chil out.

  169. by th way, adam just tweeted about a group of dancers dancing with his song.. and they are asians, specifically, they are from singapore.

  170. I’m not worried about FYE or Adam at all. After 43 days the album is still in the Top 10 @ Amazon, without promotion. FYE is being played even if we don’t hear it every 5 minutes. He has tons of good publicity coming up incl. Letterman. The AMAs certainly is not going to do anything but help. Adam does not seem to be worried at all so why should we? I’m just letting the storm take its course.

  171. LVanna, u r so right. i agree wid u..let the storm take its course. hes burning the youtube right now with FYE esp the guys he tweeted dancing with his song.im not worid too, so far.. adam will conquer everything soon. just watch out and chill out for a while.
