Adam Lambert Gives Us A Real Dutch Treat!

Adam performed an acoustic set of WWFM and was interviewed on Dutch TV last week by host Paul de Leeuw. Don’t worry, they start speaking in English as soon as Adam’s introduced. (If anyone can translate the beginning of the video for us, please let us know!)** EDIT: Look for Kellie’s comment below with the translation. It’s the first comment. Thanks Kellie!

We learn that the cute guy with the host is Jim Bakkum. He was the runner-up of Dutch Idols in 2003. The host has a great sense of humor and jokes with both Jim and Adam. Listen for Adam’s unfiltered response when he learns that Jim is not gay and also not 16. Can you imagine American hosts being so relaxed about this subject, that they could joke like this too? What a better world we’d live in.

And here he is leaving the studio. This really isn’t very exciting but I want you to have everything!

About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)

    This is what the host en Jim are talking about before Adam comes on.

    Jim wanted to be in the studio because he heared Adam came to the show, he knows him as an artist and thinks he has a great voice, to go wild for. Then Jim says how Adam became second on idol just like him. He thinks Adam made a great album and everyone should look him up on youtube 🙂

    They guy Jim bakkum is talking about Adam; That he’s a great singer and he has a great voice; People should look at his videos because he has an amazing voice and then they introduce him. If you want an exact translation you can email me. && thats actually all of it; the rest is english.

    And i love that where open here about everything; I’m Dutch; and i so hate it that i didn’t know about Adam being in Holland 🙁

    Btw; the host is gay also and also has 2 kids; hes great!

    After the interview he also sings ‘music again’ and ‘whataya want from me’ 😀

  4. This is a great performance, just love it. That interview was really cool the Europeans are so relaxed no hng ups at all, love it.

      Thank you, I was wondering what Jim Bakkum thought of Adam. I loved the host, and now it is easier to understand his openness and graciousness. Lovely. And thanks again.

      • I was wondering what Adam was thinking about Jim…… did you see the expression on his face when Paul says “Jim is only 15″……. I can only speculate what was going on in his mind and I also think Jim looks a little like Drake.
        I thought Paul was pretty mild and nor so wild this time, he is definitely one of the biggest oddballs on Dutch TV, he is kind of like Adam, people either love him or hate him.

        It is great to see more Dutch fans on this site. Adam creates a Wereld Gemeenschap/World Community!

    BEAUTIFUL vocal! Thanks!

  7. EternalGlamNation says:

    Oh my, I think Adam made a love connection with Jim!

    Great to see the band rolling in a Chevy over there.


  8. LolaGlamb says:

    jim is gorgeous, nothing like drake. i never thought drake was that good looking.

  9. JingSydney says:

    Jim, can you just be a gay guy, seems like Adam’s type …..

    I knew, I am crazy….

  10. I do believe if I was a young straight man and Adam showed interest, I would have to change sides, Ha! Ha! I wonder how many have been tempted. Makes me consider a sex change, LOL!

    That guy Jim, may in fact be gay, but just not “OUT” to the public- so the host back tracked it. Who knows, but he was really cute and totally Adam’s type. I didn’t get the 16 no 15 no 21 bit though. Did I miss something? Am I correct in understanding that Jim was the runner up on the dutch version of AI and is 21 years old? But back to our Adam-He looked and sounded ADAMAZING as usual. I still can’t wait for him to return home… even though we sure have been getting lots of news and music from “our man” since he’s been gone. Thanks for keeping us so well informed!

    • Yeah even I was confused haha, but I know that Jim can’t be 15, because he was 15 when he participated in Idols, and that was like 5 years ago, so I’m guessing he’s 20 or 21, if you watch really closely you can see he shakes his head when Adam asked him whether he really was 15.
      Love Adam btw, he’s adoooorable, and he sure looked interested in Jim hahaha, you can totally hear his flirty-voice when he said: “Nice to meet you…. Thank you!” Lol, I’d turn gay for him hahaha. (If I were a guy, otherwise it wouldn’t make a difference XD)

  12. Right, and I was using, it is convenient, I was surprised more members, and make a great gift! After I went to read that well, I like!
