Glambert's Coming Back To Idol

| Filed under: American IdolAdam Lambert


And it is going to be quite a homecoming!

Next week's American Idol result show will be graced with the presence of one of the show's most memorable performers - Adam Lambert!

What makes the news even more amazing is that Glambert will be doing something a little different this time around. He's poised to perform an acoustic version of his new song Aftermath. So, that is to say, he is turning down the glam for this jam.

Should be interesting! Make sure you tune in!

Then, after you've seen it live, head on over to iTunes and download the track for a good cause. A portion of the proceeds will go to support The Trevor Project.

Inspired! Such an important group to give to back to.

    Adam had real talent but he undersold records. Too bad, I guess he's gotta come back to Idol to gain sympathy.
    His first CD was horrible and too controlled by the record label.
    I wish him better luck on his second effort.
    BTW, no one remembers the name or the face of the winner. Adam was the real winner in the end.
    I hope he turns down all the gay shit and concentrates on being a good singer.

    he needs to get on this second album!!

  3. 3

    Heh, heh… you said 'coming' and 'back' on a Lambert headline. How fitting.

  4. 4

    He did not get as far as he did on talent on American Idol, he sounds like a cat stuck in a door, he made it to where he is because of his persona and being openly gay which I have no problem with, but that is why people voted for him, sad to say but kind of like everyone that voted for Obama just because they wanted a black man finally in office and may admitted it, they had no idea what his stance was on issues, they just voted for him because he was black, and I don't care what color he is, he should have never been elected, if you that I am wrong, remember me the next time you are at the gas pump…

    Such of great voice ! He should have duet with George Michael . Don't which voice is better !

  6. 6

    And no one cares. His "career" has been a complete failure. Time for him to give it up.

  7. 7

    YESSS i can't wait for his performance!
    oh and you forgot to mention that it is the REMIXED version of aftermath that will benefit the Trevor project, and that would be sold on Adam's website!!
    the version Adam is doing on Thursday will be like the one from his Acoustic live EP (which is INSANELY GOOD!)

  8. 8

    Perez - check your facts - I believe Adam says the remix will be available only on his website AdamOfficial IMMEDIATELY after he performs. NOT ITUNES.

  9. 9

    Can't wait!!!

  10. 10

    Umh. Just pointing out that you should have probably said AdamOfficial.com, not iTunes.

    It'll be up on AO.com on Thursday after the performance and that's where it'll benefit the Trevor Project, not iTunes. At least not yet. That comes later.

  11. 11

    This could make me tune in. I LOVE Adam.

  12. 12

    1) the remix will not be available on iTunes right away. Adam's tweet: "In order to fully benefit the Trevor Project, the remix will only be available on my site. Will be on iTunes eventually. :) "

    2) Aftermath is not a new song

  13. vbabe says – reply to this


    Re: ParisIsBurning – Undersold? He's sold over 800k. Obviously not Taylor Swift number, but that's more than many artists today. Ke$ha, for instance, has had 5 multi-platinum singles and still only has gold status in the US (she's sold 2 million albums worldwide though, like Adam has sold 1.8 million). Album sales-wise, he's doing decently.

  14. 14

    Perez - per Adam's tweet Aftermath Remix will only be availabe on his official Website immediately following the perfomance to benefit The Trevor Project. NOT ON ITUNES.

  15. 15

    It will be on AdamOfficial.com once he performs, not on iTunes. Its just to make sure that it does go to the Trevor Project. Its the remix, not the one that he is going to be doing on AI. The AI one is acoustic which is what he did while on tour and on the acoustic EP.

    I can't wait to see Adam on stage again after his little break from his sold out, headlining world tour and from writing stuff for his second CD. So excited!!

  16. 16

    Aftermath will not be immediately available on iTunes. It will be available on his website, AdamOfficial.com, after his Idol performance in order for the Trevor Project to fully benefit from the proceeds. He will announce when it is on iTunes.

    Also, to that first commenter. "Turns down all the gay shit"? Are you out of your homophobic mind? The man is gay. You can't turn it off. He always concentrates on geing the good singer that he is. His first album did extremely well and if given more time and a less crazy schedule at the time (he was on the Idol tour), it probably would have been better, with less production. If you saw him live on his tour, you would have seen the potential that all those songs had. Next week on Idol you'll see what time did for Aftermath.

    His next album will definitely be all him. He will do most, if not all of the writing, and won't need to take many songs, if any, from other writers.

    Anyone would take your definition of "not doing well". He sold over a million albums worldwide, got a grammy nomination, supported a headlining world tour on his first album, and is one of the most talked about artists and style icons at this time. Yeah, it sounds like he's doing awful…

  17. 17

    Gonna take it down acoustic style. Then remix will be avail that day on adamofficial.com

    In order to fully benefit the Trevor Project, the remix will only be available on my site. Will be on iTunes eventually. :)

    Perez - please correct the info. Want as much $$ to go to the Trevor Project as possible

  18. 18

    Will he be simulating an impromptu BJ again?

  19. 19

    YAAAY! Altho dammit Adam, you're making me watch Idol again. But still, can't wait to hear him perform Aftermath, when I went to his concert this summer it was one of my favorite songs in his setlist. And I love that the proceeds will go to the Trevor Project, which does inspiring work helping LGBT kids who are so desperate to escape the horror of constant bullying that they consider suicide.

  20. 20

    Yea, first album was pretty good. The second album will be even better. At least Adam can sing just about anything he puts his mind to. That's more than most of the crap coming out of the music industry right now. @ Bagman, how can you compare Adam to Obama? One has talent the other is a junior senator who can organize community activities.

    Re: Phibes – we can only hope.

  22. 22

    why aren't my comments posting

  23. 23

    OMG I can't wait! I looooove Adam Lambert, best idol ever

  24. 24

    Yes! LOVE YOU ADAM!!!!

  25. 25

    Looking forward to watching Adam sing this on Idol!! This song, done acoustically is absolutely incredible. I could listen to it forever.

    To the bitter Betty's saying Adam and his album didnt do well? Acording to what? The last 2 years have been the worst the recording industry has EVER seen yet he's holding his own quite well. He's doing as well or better than many of the artists being pimped and played heavily on the radio right now. He did a world tour that was 98% sold out… which was an AMAZING show, btw. So far he's sold almost 2 million cd's world wide. He has singles that have never been released in the US on charts in several countries right now. His videos and singles were on best of 2010 lists from VH1 to Fuse to Billboard. He's the only Idol contestant to ever do a world tour off his first album and he's the only one they've had mentor and perform twice. I know you THINK it's cooler to be grumpy and brooding and spew bs… but it's really not.

  27. 27

    Perez, the download will be on his website AdamOfficial.com, not itunes. Please correct.

  28. 28

    Re: Mad Dog – If failing is 1.8 million album sales & a sold out US & international tour, count me in on some of that!

  29. 29

    Re: chica63 – Amen to this!

  31. 31

    that is the one and only episode i'll be watching!

  32. 32

    EXCITED for the AFTERMATH Remixxxxxx + seeing Adam on Idol is always good times :)

  33. 33

    Re: Phibes – simulated BJ's followed by open-tongued sloppy juicy kisses for all the male contestants

  34. 34

    Re: ParisIsBurning – For people who prefer the "tame" Adam (that's not me BTW), you will be very pleased on Thursday. Acoustic Adam is always stunning. Adam NEVER disappoints.

  35. 35

    LOVE this sexy free bish!

    He is stunning acoustic so even though this is the only track on his album I skip, I'm still excited for the performance.

  36. 36

    Thanks Perez for the beautiful, classy pic of Adam and for the positive info regarding upcoming Idol apprarance. Glad he will be doing the acoustic , unglam version because of the importance and beauty of the lyrics which should be the main focus. Adam is so insightful doing it this way and showing the millions that will be watching why he is so fevelant and loved by his fans.[myself being among them. His exceptional voice and connection to the lyrics will remind the masses just how magnificent he is and how lovable and likable. Thanks for supporting this gift of a man. He is genuinely loved and respected. I also love the kinder Perez and you're looking so fine lately!!

    Sorry to hear any negative uninformed comments that have no fact and are meanspirited. It reflects on the posters ignorance and negative character. Adam's GNT was a worldwide success, almost every venue sold out. Over 800,000 cds in the US alone, not counting the many sold worldwide. For his golden 29th B-day,over 294,000 was donated in his name for Charity Water by fans that recognize his amazing talent and giving spirit. He has more class in his little finger than some of the juvenile homophobes that show their ignorance and don't really matter, when you consider the source. I prefer to "Spread the Lambert Love24/7" which is what Adam is really about.NOH8!

  38. 38

    He needs to be on my screen at all times.

  39. 39

    srsly, gLAMBERT is the only exciting idol person.

    if he had stronger vids and singles, he'd be up there with divas like mariah & bey. its a shame RCA suck.

  40. 40

    i bet if it was up to him, he'd have released FEVER and one of the ethereal tracks he wrote but his label suggested otherwise. anyway, The Trevor Project is a great cause.

    Thanks Perez, I can't wait for Adam's performance and the release of the remix Aftermath on his official site. Loving me some Lambert. I also love that he is donating to The Trevor Project, he is quite the humanitarian.
