Adam Lamberts Acoustic Version of WWFM, Australian morning show-Sunrise

In this video, Adam performs an acoustic version of “Whataya Want From Me” on the Australian morning show, Sunrise.
After thrilling us with his Mardi Gras performance of FYE, equipped with his spandex pants and bejeweled codpiece, he shows up the very next morning in a simpler version of himself and softly sings his acoustic version of Whataya Want From Me.
Did he know we were all going to be hungover from that previous evenings performance?? I feel like that made it all the more beautiful though, going from hot and heavy to soft and simple. How can one man be so visually stunning, day in and day out? I don’t know nor do I care to figure it out, i’d rather just keep watching day after day…




  1. This is the most beautiful, soulful acoustical version of WWFM Adam has done yet. The close ups of his face were mesmerizing. He is just so gorgeous and his smile at the end is priceless. I had goose bumps listening to him. Absolutely beautiful!!!

    • I agree with you. Barbls. I love everything about this performance. The sound, the look, the feel——–absolutely incredible. That face—dreamy, sexy, beautiful, so lovable. I can’t stop watch it. I can’t stop myself I Just love Adam so much, I’m going crazy here. Never before have anybody have this kind of effect ———-

    • The face without makeup, so true , so real. so sensual, so beautiful. Amazing, truly amazing.

I think I said it all! Hahaha!!

    Oi / Hello
    Great song, isn’t? Everybody love itr!!!
    BUT guess what? I’m watching Red Carpet on E!…. It’s 10 pm here in Brasil, I believe it’s 5 pm in LA and…………I heard FYE in back interview……….Anyone hear that? That’s awsome, great, exciting, isn’t?
    Tell me what do you konw about…….soon…….Beijos
    (Sorry My English…….but I believe you understand what I want to say)

    • GLAMB#577 ElianeBrasil says:

      BTW…. Was he a little hoarse (is It?) With little problem with his voice, I mean… Little cold.
      What do you think about?

      • KO's smiling says:

        I think it was just that the show was taped so early! how he sings in the AM at all is amazing to me. I can barely talk without croaking.

      • he looks tired and he’s avoiding those high notes, i think he’s had a really good time in australia!! this is not to say that he also looks and sounds fabulous, he does. in fact, i think it makes him look vulnerable and accessible. you just want to wade in and hold him and make him feel loved.

    • GLAMB#577 ElianeBrasil says:

      Hey again
      I’m watching OSCAR’S E! Red Carpet Anyone saw (heard) FYE just few minuts ago?
      Tell me OR I was dreaming with Adam?

      • lovemyadam says:

        You weren’t dreaming, that was our boy!! Congrats Adam!! Wish you were there though…


        • GLAMB#577 ElianeBrasil says:

          Bom dia! Good morning
          Sue, it is a dream really. For us and imagine for him…. I hope he know about it,
          beijos/ kisses

        • I loved this!!!!!!! Adam looks so damn gorgeous!!! I wish he would look like this more often. Damn he looks so young in that video. I am in love all over again.

      • the minute i heard his FYE start playing i turned the volume way up!!! it made the red carpet much more interesting. his voice did sound a little hoarse, prob. from all of the singing he did at mardi gras. and what a lovely performance of WWFM, i love all of his performances, but i love his live perf. just a little bit more because of his improvisation and creativity added to the moment. what a loverboy. YUM.

  3. Beautiful as always! ADAM sounds like he’s maybe a little hoarse, and probably tired from all this traveling and performing! Poor guy…rough with the time changes!

    I love him singing this accoustic version! He is the BEST!

    • lovemyadam says:

      I can’t even imagine how hard that must be with the time difference and all… still gorgeous regardless…


  4. AdamAddict says:

    OMG,he is so beautiful like a sunrise,eh?Tommy twat his wacthing Rambo pt1 then 2 hours later pt2 and then pt3.So,he’s not there in sunrise,probably he’s watching pt4 now.LOL!But,this is so awesome.He is beautiful,his voice is beautiful.No need spiky GB cup…I mean make up,he still look so stunning.Hmmm,I can sleep with wide smile on my face now…maybe drooling a little…..and snoring a lot!Aaaahhh,why he so beautiful???Love Adam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Man that was truly beautiful, took my breath away, slightly huskier voice (late night maybe?) I love all the Adam looks and sounds but this to me is the best. Its great to know he is only 2 or 3 hours away from me in time, instead of the usual 20 hours, I know you fans over there are missing him while he is over our way, but We are loveing it. Jan NZ

  6. Darlene says:

    Another amazing Adam Lambert performance. Adam is the only one out there that I know that can suond so good no matter how he sings the song and he performs it so well. He also looks so good no matter how he is dressed.

  7. Elizabeth Richter, Glamb#545 says:

    Hi folks. I’m still in love with the acoustic version of “Broken Open” so I thought I’d post it here for you guys to connect to. It is such a pleasure to listen to. I encourage you all to check it out. Here it is:

  8. Adam is brilliant.

  9. Glenda #1946 says:

    Beautiful sleepy eyes…bet he had a fabulous time! And yes I did hear FYE on the Red Carpet….pretty cool!!!……Adam come home! We miss you!!

    • GLAMB#577 ElianeBrasil says:

      Oi/ Hello
      I think people not pay attentiion on Red Carpet. Just you and Sue heard? and me, of course?
      I think it is amazing thing for him…….if he konws that I believe he will be proud.
      Beijos kisses

  10. Libraglam says:

    Was it …tears in his eyes? First from his right eyes , and later in both eyes?….If it is ..then why is he crying? anyway, this version is also so beautiful….In my personal opinion, i think his voice is not hoarse but it seemed to me that he is very emotional this time singing that song… Or because it is only my great imagination…

    • glamasia says:

      Adam’s probably homesick. He misses Tommy…. ? Saw in another site he had passport issues that’s why he couldn’t join them. But its being fixed so he can join Adam.

  11. Dianne Hill says:

    Adam is simply stunning, whether it is to go acoustic like this, just gorgeous, or all out like he did at Mardi Gras, I can’t choose which is my favourite because I love them all. It doesn’t matter which way he does a song or performance he is just stunning. I love him more and more and more each day.

    • lovemyadam says:



    • gran4adam says:

      ME TOO!

    • I agree with you Dianne, make up or no make up he is stunning, makes no different which version, accoustic or not it is the beautiful voice that makes a song. You cannot fail but love Adam, love grows every time I see him and hear him.

  12. What a beatifull performance by a very beautifull soul. He is amazing!!!!!!.And yes I saw tears in his eyes too. He is a very sensitive and kind person, he touches my soul everytime i hear him sing.

  13. I loved it! Great even after a night of partying. Your voice is so awesome!!

  14. love you ADAM!!!!!!!

  15. Adam, you are beautiful!!! It feels a little strange knowing you are so far away. However, it is good to share you and all your talent with the rest of the world. Lorraine, from San Diego

  16. Love his acoustic singing with his hoarse voice or just “woke up” voice. What’s best is his beautiful tantalizing eyes without the heavy eyeliner. ADAM you’re just fabulous.

  17. Robin Hatcher says:

    Looked like maybe a little tears in his eyes, voice sounded amazing, I like hearing him without all the background vocals, truely mesmerizing. Just a hint of glitter and I love the hoop earring.

  19. grandjag says:

    love this look and sound..husky voice,sleepy eyes , everything ..

  20. k. morgan says:

    Even if he is a tad hoarse (understandably should be) he was amazing on this…love the stripped down version with a bit of temp change…he makes it so emotional…you could just listen to him all day..find myself doing this…he is wonderful.

  21. i love all of his performances! full of great..

    he has a new performance in a bar in Sydney where he did a funky version
    of mad world ! hope Sue can post it here, so everyone can enjoy..


  22. I am crying with him, I am so moved.
    I think those were real tears. We can only guess what is going on for him.
    Does the world even know what kind of treasure we have on our hands here?

    • earlzagurl4u says:

      OMG! Adam is so unbelievable,,going from spandex and codpiece to husky morning voice for an acoustic version of WWFM, there’s been other acoustics of that song but this one is soooo different. I too noticed tears {sparkles} but I also saw tears during “Beth”, but someone told me it was light reflecting off the glitter during that song. But I know I’m not seeing things. Adam definitely did have tears during the Sunrise performance. Maybe he was just realizing what all he has accomplished in at least the past year. I’m thinking he was also realizing just how much he is “loved.” I.J.L.Y. Peace, Light, Love, to all Glambs and Adam 🙂

  23. AllaboutAdam says:

    Oh what a long way we’ve come since last MAY, and he has gotten better and better every time he opens his mouth to sing…. This acoustic version, ala the GMA “Starlight” performance is my favorite Adam style… definitely brings tears to your eyes. Can’t say anything that we haven’t all said 100 times, but that watching his growth, his success, and every performance … is PURE JOY. What a man.

  24. This reminds me of the AI performance of Mad World…….Soft, sexy and full of emotion. I don’t know any other performer than can put that kind of emotion in a song and be so stunning to look at also. I know it has been said before but he is just ADAMAZING!! I just can’t get enough. He is so beautiful in every way. Well Done!!

  25. Another perfect version of WYWFM. Adam always draws you in to feel the emotion with him. I loved his ‘dressed down’ look…..which matched this beautiful acoustic version. And what about that beautiful smile when he finished……

    They also did a very short interview with him and introduced him as “American Idol made”. They remarked that he had been to OZ before and he said that he had been here for one day when he was nineteen then they commented that he was “a bit out there’, asked him what comes first …his music or his flamboyance and he answered…”my music”. Then…just before he sang they said “From Idol to International Star…Adam Lambert.

    Love, Yvonne (Australia)

  26. Patricia (rose1) says:

    This is so tender. He never fails to amaze me with each new performance!! And with each new performance I like him more. Send him back safe, please, we need him!!

  27. Ima Ramorah says:

    his sleepy eyes are so beautiful *sIgH*
    would love to make him an egg in a cup and some strippy toast like I did my kids and just watch him eat.

  28. hi,im sorry to say this,but what doest it mean adam like the top,? im mean in sex situation.sorry

  29. ianaleah says:

    Very nice version. Adam looks gorgeous, I think he is more beautiful,pretty, when he looks more male tha with all the guyliner and pixie hair style. He is so good-looking and I’ve read that looking at something beautiful gives you energy. Gotta wall paper all my wall w photos of Adam- just kiddin’.

  30. Breathtaking!!! Best male vocalist, most beautiful voice and most gorgeous man on earth!!!!!

  31. “Baby you’re beautiful and there’s nothing wrong with you”…….
    Need I say more?

    I love how versitile he is!!!

  33. linlivalex says:

    I know he is awesome all glammed-up, but this is SO my favorite Adam look. It makes him look so…….accessible. A little tired, a little glassy-eyed, tousled hair-so normal–and so HOT!


  35. Maureen says:

    Oh mother of G-D he is amazing!! I also love this look sometimes when he’s not in the Glammed up mood…he could wear a potato sack and he’d still be gorgeous and we won’t even talk about the talent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. Another performance to add to the treasures!! SO sweet and pure! Yah, that song probably does get emotional for him at times. I wonder if it’s cuz he has been SO warmly received and genuinely appreciated without all the hoards of placard carrying idiots or scandal hungry reporters from his own country. Just look at the headlines from the USA gossip columns since Sat. night – they are foaming over with crap like he had just repeated the AMA”s that they have been joyfully slamming for over 3 months. Mardi Gras – the right look for the right moment, honey!! He was completely covered up but for a little chest, did not touch another person, did not gyrate the pelvis nearly as much as the Summer Tour (darm!!), Yah, the codpiece was a focus but not nearly as hot at the black leather pants that bulge with natural contour! I think he is LIVING THE DREAM and maybe the surreal nature of that just wells up in him sometimes. He’s not only a very sexy guy, he is also a very emotional, deep feeling human being and we LERV the whol thing!!

  37. I love this version of the song…he sings with such heart and soul…what a great talent.

  38. Thank you much. I’ve loved all his acoustic performances because we get to see and HEAR him. This was a wonderful performance….and the look….fabulous. This is the look I’d like to see, especially when he does interviews. How fresh, young, appealing and beautiful he is.
    Don’t get me wrong, I love the power stuff, too. And sometimes I think his make-up and outfits are perfect. Like for his performance of Sleepwalker on Jay Leno Show in the United States. I think it will be his biggest single to date. And I thought he looked fantastic! Rhinestones in his eye make up and all. What a star. He is magic. Just keeps me wanting to hear more and more.

  39. Just looking at his eyes, I would definitely say he was tired.
    It must be an exhausting schedule for him. And I think he sang
    very well, under the circumstances..I am so proud of him and wish
    him all the very best on his tour.

    LOVE, LOVE LOVE ADAM! In everything,the way HE sings,HE wears,HIS looks,the most amazing and talented man ever. As a single performer, better than Elvis, hard to bet that.He is so ever changing, and always does his best. with or without makeup, did like the natural look, he is always sexy, beautiful, charming, and honest.and all ways gives his best, in all situations.He did look tired, but a great performance, as always! At 58, I have never felt this way about a singer, always wanting more, since the Beatles!1 Adam is AMAZING!

  41. donna293 says:

    This was so beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

  42. Truly amazing … he mesmerizes you every time you look at him and listen to him …

  43. Oh My,..This took me back to Adams amazing AI appearences, and it was just beautiful.
    Gorgeous is not the word for it. As my mom would say,……”he’s just plain pretty”, and I’m 50 years old. 🙂
    I love this look on Adam. I do like some of the makeup., but I have to say this is my favorite look for Adam. His face is just to gorgeous, handsome, One of a kind in the best way possible.
    I loved the this version of the song.
    It did take me back to Idol days.
    Does anybody find how depressing American Idol is this season??
    Easy reason for that,……..NO ADAM
