Adam Lambert Sings Never Close Our Eyes on Graham Norton Show

Adam Lambert was in the British studios as a guest on Graham Norton’s show this week. It won’t be televised until June 30th, so check your guides for your BBCA listing.

Adam sang Never Close Our Eyes, backed up by a house band. It must not be cost-effective to send his usual players along for a 3-minute appearance. Of course Adam is in England, rehearsing with Queen, getting ready for their upcoming gigs.

Don’t you love the change in wardrobe? His light gray jacket is so sophisticated and the conservative trousers are a real departure from the usual skin-tight black leather pants. And the white shoes??!! The lavender socks were a quiet reminder of Adam’s glam taste. His whole appearance makes a wonderful statement of who he is now, don’t you think?

Love ya!

Here’s the entire show. Instead of bringing the guests out one by one, this show’s format has them all on the couch for the entire show. Unfortunately, Adam didn’t join them until almost the end, after he sang. Will.i.am makes a fabulously entertaining guest, immediately going toe-to-toe with elder British actress Miriam Margolyes. For some reason, this video cuts out when Adam sings but at 33:11, it picks up when Adam joins them on the couch. He didn’t get to say much, but it didn’t seem like much time was allowed, even if Miriam didn’t pipe up with another story. At least it was hilarious!

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! :)

  1. Thanks so much Carol,
    One of my favorite things is when something about Adam pops up in my in box ….it think I actually hold my breath until I get to see it…too funny & exhilerating at the same time.
    Adam could wear a dirty potato sack & look stunning! I did LOVE his earlier fashion sense but the new refined, sophisticated Adam is so refreshing and totally SEXY as well.
    He does “Ring my Ding” so to speak!
    LOVE the new album…as always I never can get enough Adam….I sing everyday with him in my car!
    Just Perfect!
    XO Always… “ADAMICTED”

  2. He sang his heart out as usual. He never misses a note regardless of the band or the singers. He’s amazing. The new look is fabulous. He can wear anything and look stylish. I’ve always said that if his voice ever goes, he can always be a model. I wished he had a longer segment but we’ll take whatever they give him. Thouroughly enjoyed it.

  3. You really need to do your research Carol.. They were NOT a houseband.. they were the band that has accompanied him through the GAY Heaven events and on any of his promotional performances… yes they are English and yes he did leave his band at home due to not having enough lone performances to justify taking his band… however they did a good job.

    • Thanks for helping me out, Lisa. In my rush to get the story posted, I used a wrong term for the band. I just meant different than his usual band, not to imply they were lesser musicians. I didn’t know they were his steady British band, thanks!

  4. This was great! Adam, we believe could sing great even without a band. Keep it coming! Love forever and a day, Rita Norton & Donna Levi

    1) I am so sad that he wasn’t part of the main interview. I mean, that was a scream, but it would’ve been better with Adam.

    2) That suit is AMAZING!!! And the shoes make me weak in the knees. They looked straight up rockabilly from the 80’s. LOVE IT!!!

    3) Interesting choice of back up singers. I like the change of pace in using the male voices instead of female.

    I love Adams light outfit, perfect for summer. The jacket is beautiful. I get tired of black, and he looks great in lighter colors. Love the touch of color purple in the socks. The English band is absolutely wonderful. Love the male back-up singers as well. NCOE best song on the album performed once again with flawless ease. This comes so natural for Adam. His total stage and audience control, amazing.

    I was in the audience at the Graham Norton show and actually there was a bit more chat with Adam, but I was sad to see when the programme aired that it had been edited out. He also talked about singing with Queen.

    He was such a pro – as usual! And he looked sooooo beautiful – like a Botticelli angel!

  13. Victoria says:

    Please also vote for Adam at Q102, currently losing to Avril Lavigne.

    The crowd goes crazy when Adam shows up. Everyone loves Adam. Watch it here in High Quality, GREAT interview. Once again, I’m adamazed on how articulatr and how much connection he usually has with the interviewers. They talk about his experience, his background, his family, and his perspective on American Idol.
