But he can TOTES sing, you guys!
And to seemingly prove Adam Lambert WRONG in his estimation that the stars of Tom Hooper's Les Misérables lacked the proper vocal ability to give justice to the musical's powerful tunes, Russell recently posted a STUDIO recording of himself singing Stars, with just a piano as accompaniment!
Judge Russell's singing talent for yourself (above)!
We must admit his voice sounds chocolate-cake rich, and we concede he does have an impressive talent…
But it just lacks the "umph!: — that POWER you're supposed to feel when hearing that song. But he isn't as terrible as many have made him out to be.
A BRAVO! to you, good sir!
