Adam Lambert had a busy week!
The artist performed in Central Park on Friday for Good Morning America's summer concert series — just a few days after he dished about the cancellation of American Idol!
The Ghost Town singer was the runner up in the show's eighth season back in 2009, but has arguably had the better career over season winner Kris Allen!

So what did the 33-year-old have to say about the long running music competition's upcoming final season? He thinks "it's about time" the show comes to an end, explaining:
"It's great that there's talent that can be discovered via TV, on shows like Idol, The Voice and X Factor. [But] I think things are changing a little bit. Things like YouTube have now become a great way for people to launch their talent, as well. I think things might be shifting a little bit, so we'll see what the next phase is."
The next phase for Lambert is the release of his brand new album The Original High, which hit stores on Tuesday!
