Adam Lambert’s-IF I HAD YOU-Video Debut

This video is EVERYTHING I had hoped it would be AND MORE!
The flashing of the lights…what a gorgeous use of lights, and dancers, and beautiful people, and ADAMMMMMMM!!!!
WOW. Dancing and people and did I mention, ADAM?
I’m going to stop babbling and let you watch, then tell me what you think…


Adam Lambert




    • Speechless in Seattle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Adam got a shout out on ET tonight – with a tag line “Does Adam Lambert want to be a Vampire?” Based on his shooting the video all night in the woods. Too funny, but hey, any publicity is good publicity, right?
      Vote, vote, vote on VH1 – wouldn’t it be awesome if we could make this video DEBUT at #1 this week, and keep it there? Lots of other stuff on VH1 too, including “posted” notes (like tweets) from Adam, dozens of pictures, and posters and t-shirts for sale.

  2. Well worth the wait! Adam has entertained us again. LOVED IT !!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Magiclady says:

    Love this man! and that look at the end and those white pants and I could go on and on!!!

  4. AWESOME! He continues to surprise and amaze us!! He looks sexy as always:) I can’t wait to start hearing this song on the radio!! Has anyone heard it yet?

  5. This may well be the greatest video ever created. It should win every award. Unbelieveable

  6. Absolutely fantastic!!!!!I am seeing Adam on Friday in Royal Oak. Can hardly wait–especially after seeing this video!

  7. WOW!!!!!!!!!!! I believe I saw Allison in it too.
    Man this guy is good and goodlooking to boot!

    • Micki (Glamb #535) says:

      Yup, you did see Alli. My hub is as big a fan of her as I am of Adam, so after I could think again after repeated viewings, I noted where she is for him to watch. She’s in there 4x for sure at aprox 2:40, 2:45, 3:15 & 3:30. I know I saw Cassidy Haley in there (remember when Adam was on the Idol tour & tweeted re his friend’s new vid “whiskey in churches”).

      Apparently Ke$ha is in it too, but I wouldn’t know her to see her. I think I saw Cheeks in there too. I thought possibly Alison Porter but not certain of recognition factor, so kind of a guess there.

      Anyone know for sure on these possible sightings, or have any others in there? Band and regular dancers are kind of a given

      Glitter, Glam, Glitz, Peace & Love!

      • KO's smiling says:

        I think the first few frames include pics of his friends’ album covers… does anyone recognize them?

        Ke$ha sighting: 1:59, 2:12, 2:26-7, 3:30, 3:39?

        Moment of intense hotness: 2:49-3:02

        • KO's smiling says:

          It’s not album covers… it’s their twitter avatars. I recognized Scarlett Cherry and Cheeks.

      • kellym11 says:

        Do you know if Adam’s best friend Danielle Stori was on the video? Find her video “On the Inside” featuring Adam. It will make you cry.

        • KO's smiling says:

          If she’s a performer, I’m sure she was… I’ll look for her. Pretty song, too. Thanks for the suggestion.

  8. Marie Glamb #9 says:

    Powerful piece, Sue!

    I love how he puts an imaginative twist on things!


  9. WOW!!! I can’t make those letters big enough or put in enough exclamation marks! This is AMAZING!!!
    Love it, love it, love it! Thank you, Adam, for another exercise in perfection!

  10. Sue, Will this be on t.v. tonight . If so where.

  11. lambertrox says:

    ADAMAZING!!! Truly unbelievable and worth the wait!
    And I think I saw Allison, too…

  12. The Video isnt working for me, none of the VH1’s are… is it because i live in England? :/ 🙁

    • ElianeBrasil GLAMB#577 says:

      Try it again. I’m here in Brazil and I watched him.
      Good Luck
      Beijos / kisses

    • Peggy in Newfoundland says:

      Anna – it’s available on his official website now and that worked for me. It is INCREDIBLE. I LOVE the ending…..that expression is priceless. xoxo

    • I couldn’t get it, either, and I’m in the States. My computer was also frozen. I finally closed it down and restarted it and it worked. You might try that. You have nothing to lose.

    • Micki (Glamb #535) says:

      I’m in Western Canada & I kept getting messages from any official site that it wouldn’t play for viewers in my region. I used a “flash video downloader” (there’s several, most are free, I like one called FVD Suite the best) and found the best quality one I could find on youtube in full screen mode, and pasted that URL into the FVD program & it downloaded it to my HD. If you’re still having trouble viewing it, you might want to try that.

      Good Luck!!

      • Thankyou so much guys… I finally found one which worked! Its was totally worth the effort…. god I love him! 🙂 xxxx

  13. It’s so amazing video =)

  14. Peggy in Newfoundland says:

    Anna, I live in Canada and none of the VH1 videos work for me either. Are they only viewable in the US? I am tearing my hair out trying to find this video – will try YouTube next….. SAD!

  15. MAGIC!!!!!!!!!!! AMAZING!!!!

  16. As usual, I want more, more, more! This guy’s got it all…his beauty is almost indescribable. We’re going to see him tomorrow night in Milwaukee…god, how are you going to drag me away when the concert is over? What a great video!

  17. Just ‘OUT OF THIS WORLD’ is there any thing he can’t do.LOVE,LOVE,LOVED it. Can’t wait for Louisville.July 10th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. libraglam says:

    SPPPPPEEEECHLEEESSSSSSSS!!!! OMG I LOVE THIS VIDEO at the very 1st second of it, This video is so so good ….!! BEAUTIFUL ! FANTASTIC !……Adam is so beautiful. He looks so FRESH, ENERGETIC, and filled with HAPPINESS !! You can see in his EYES and SMILE ! It really really connected to the viewers ! Really connected !! This is the BEST VIDEO !! I am so happy to see this…i can say it will be a BIG BIG BIG HIT !!!

    • libraglam says:

      Imagine this was videotaped very early in the morning when it was still dark ….but his eyes look so bright and full of energy….how did he do that ???

      • Dianne Hill says:

        The video was shot right throughout the night till the early hours of the morning.

        • libraglam says:

          He is even better than i thought….it’s like at the end of the day til the next morning….It’ like he had to prepare everything before that night and carry on to the next morning….Salute!

  19. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! Love the little hop skip in the beginning when he is working his strut. Everyone go and vote on vh1……..let’s get him to premiere at #1!!!!!!! I just voted about ten times and I’m going back to vote more. Maybe now we will get this song some airplay. WOOHOO!! DAMN GLAMTASTIC ADAM!!!!!!!!

  20. felicia says:

    I can’t think of any other word except AMAZING! he always is in any thing he ever does. Deff his best video so far

  21. Adamisamazing says:

    I have been anticipating the release of this video for a while, and have been watching in continually. As mentioned earlier on this post, please go to VH1’s Top 20 and vote for Adam! Let’s make him number one again!!! I’ve missed voting for him, plus the VH1 Top 20 hasn’t meant much to me lately without him. I also want to have this requested over and over again on radio – for our star!
    The video was colorful, lighthearted and positive. His vision and message was realized for this song, I still just love the closeups of his gorgeous face, and naturally there are never enough of those for me. 😉 I love that he is loyal to his friends (and yes, Allison was a nice surprise, too) and had them appear in his video. One of my favorite songs on the CD…after TFM. Great job, Adam!

    • I’m voting~ I’m voting! Just got home and only got to watch the video once and started voting. OMG what a treat. Adam has returned us to the AGE OF AQUARIUS!! in full blown forest, bohemian mode, in your face, out of this world, and like no other video Iv’e seen! It’s an artistic wonder and I love it. YOU GO ADAM!!! Show this world who Adam Lambert is and what he can do. I sure I will have much more to add once I’ve seen this a few hundred times.YAHOO!

      • Adamisamazing says:

        Cool! I just checked the preliminary results, and he is in first place so far!

  22. Magiclady says:

    When is VH1 gonna debut on TV?

    • Adamisamazing says:

      I believe and hope it will be Friday on “Jump Start” and if he makes the Top 20, it will be on Saturday.

      • WWFM was played on Jump Start this a.m. with a notice to watch Adam’s Posted on VH1. No mention of IIHY, but did not watch the whole time. P.S. Notice anyone how artistic and “family friendly” this video is? Close your eyes and listen to him singing this video. Happiness seems to reverebrate in his voice. Don’t think I imagining this.

  23. cheryl 334 says:


    This is the cutest and best video yet!!! I, too, love him in the white pants and his hair is so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!
    He looks sooooooooo in “control”! He is such a ‘leader’! He is so full of confidence, it is extremely endearing!

    Adam, it is unbelievable to see how far you’ve come since idol whe n I thought you were as good as it could possibly get!!! I see you producing and directing and acting, etc………………….you have blasted the glass ce iling in the business already. We’re just waitilng for the ‘fruits’ of your labors of love!

    Love-Pea ce-Light-Truth-Fun-Happiness…….icon blooming before the world………………..:)

    • Cheryl334 I love your final words, Love, Peace, Light, Truth, Fun, Happiness~~~~~~~~~~~~~That’s what were all searching for, PEACE, LOVE TO YOU CHERYL Elly GLAMB# 640

      • cheryl 334 says:

        ELLY………………………….THANKS!!:) You are so right! Back at ya!!

        Love-Peace-Light-Truth-Fun-Happiness 2 Adam and all his extended family!:)

  24. I am so proud of how far he has come in such a short time. He seems so happy in this video and of course with those white pants and hair WWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW, hotter than ever!!!!!! Elly GLAMB# 640 I’ll finally get to see him in person in 32 days and boy am I ready!!!!!!!!!

    • cheryl 334 says:

      ELLY……………….SO HAPPY FOR YOU!:) You just concentrate on everything Adam does, every move, every note and each costume change! You’ll want to always remember it, and if you aren’t ‘focused’, you might not be able to remember, cuz he is so all-encompassing, sexy and talent like you’ve never seen before! Go for it, Elly!!! Everything you can get from the concert!:)

      Love-Peace-Light-Fun-Truth-Happiness…..4 Adam……………….thrills 4 Elly!……….:) 🙂

      • Thanks Cheryl 334, I will try to concentrate, I don’t want to miss anything but I just go “ga ga” just listening to his songs so I’m not sure how I’ll do in the same area with him. It’s in a very small venue so that will be awesome!!! Have you got to see him live? Elly GLAMB# 640

        • cheryl 334 says:

          ELLY…………Hang in there!:) Yes, I have seen the Rock-God and he is all and more everyone says he is!!!! I got to have a (very) small chat and autograph and hold his hands, etc.!!!! It has really changed me! That is the truth, and I just knew in my heart that I would never be the same if I saw him, and I never will be!
          It is hard, but I had made up my mind that when I saw him, I would not pay attention to anything else going on including the rest of the world in the room! I did just that, and I never have to say ‘I wished I had paid more attention to his voice or costume, or anything else’.
          I saw Elvis the year he died and have absolutely no memory of anything after the orchestra plaid his ‘2001 A Space Oddessy’ as he took the stage. I do remember seeing girls with blood on them after fighting for one of his scarves, tho! 🙂
          Elvis would love Adam, I have no doubt!
          So, you stay as focused as you can, you’ll have more years left to see him again and again!:)

          Peace-Love-Light 2 U Elly………………you’ll need your strength!:)

  25. Mardella says:

    This video is glamtastic. Wish they would show Adam more in his white pants. He looks HOT!!
    But then again, he looks HOT in anything. Every one looks like they are having a good time. Adam always fasinates me. Never know what to expect. He always does a great job no matter what it is.
    I will certainly put my vote in for this video.

  26. Blambert says:

    I can’t watch this because I do not live in USA.(Out of region)
    Can anyone put it on youtube?

    • Dianne Hill says:

      I watched it this morning (I live in New Zealand) at 6.00am NZ time and it is 1.37pm here now. Apparently it has been pulled. Maybe Adam’s official site will have it. Good luck because it is well worth watching over and over and over. He is the most fantastic guy and entertainer EVER.

  27. This is a wonderful video, but of course Adam is amazing at all he does….and the smiles are wonderful from such a handsome guy………

  28. Out of this F’ing world! Amazing!!!

  29. gran4adam says:


  30. Don’t forget to vote!!!!
    I love this video!!

  31. awww I love how allison is in the video!!!!!, I wish there was more platform boot shots, awesome video!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Princessshakeitup says:

      I can’t believe they had him wear those killer boots [could have fallen off them and broke his beautiful neck!] and then hardly even showed them! He deserves for them to make a “Boots Cut” of the video! And then a “White Pants” cut…and then…

      • Imagine he had a lot to say about how the video would end up. I read or heard that he’s very hands on. Get the feeling that he wanted everyone to see his friends as much as himself. Also, nice tribute to his “little sister” Allison. Showing my age, but is he bringing music back to the 70’s where all the greats were doing their thing? I feel this vibe and loving it.

  32. retrogrrrl says:

    How is it possible, he just keeps getting BETTER and BETTER!
    This video is gonna be HUGE! VOTE VOTE VOTE! I want it to debut at NUMBER ONE!!!
    That LOOK! (Faints)…I cannot wipe this grin off my face. Adam you are THE BEST EVER!!!

  33. kat4adam says:

    This is fabulous!! Everything and more than I dreamed it would be! The lighting and costumes and Adam looked amazing. I will do my part to make it the number #1 video of all time.
    It’s your best work Adam and I’m so happy for you!

  34. For some reason I can’t see the video on here, but I looked it up and saw it somewhere else because I WAS DYING too see it!!

    I love, love, LOVE IT!!!

    A true celebration, of love,life and fun!!!

    Love you Adam and a big THANK YOU for the joy you give! 🙂

  35. lerlaine says:

    sad! i cant watch this video in my region. I am from Singapore,any other source where i can watch the MV from ? i’ve been waiting so long for this.

  36. OH Adam you are a beautiful person inside and out. This video represent everything ADAM LABERT IS. Atrue artist and a great vocalist and handsome. What a positive,charming,loving and sweet person. How does he do it? He is out of this world,not possible for a one human being to be all that. He is gift from above,for us to enjoy. Thank GOD for sending him to us in this difficult times. He brings so much happiness through his music and his personality.

  37. FlamingoLady says:

    Between the white pants and that last sexy smile…OMG…sweet dreams tonight!
    Can he BE any more amazing?!?!

  38. go adam that video hot and i love it

  39. LINDA HOLMES says:

    I loved it and you ADAM LAMBERT! GO ADAM!!!!!!!

  40. OMG,…. (thud)… I just picked myself up off the floor!!! ADAM IS SEXIEST HUMAN BEING ON EARTH!!! THIS VIDEO ONLY CONFIRMS IT! He is so beautiful it is shocking! This video is FANTASTIC, and will definitely shoot to No. 1, the colors, the lights, the dancers and of course our Master of Entertainment “ADAM”!

    Can’t wait to see him in New York the 22nd!!!!

  41. Princessshakeitup says:

    The group “Genesis” used to have a song called “Turn it on Again” which included the lyrics: “I can show you…some of the people in my life”; a tribute I used to sing drunkenly to my wonderful friends on occasion…
    I think this was ADAM’s tribute to some of the wonderful people in HIS life…and he did it perfectly, as usual.
    I actually saw the video first on a site where the reviewer said it was not good. I guess you are entitled to your own opinions…
    Except when they are so WRONG!
    I WANT TO SEE THIS ON A BIG SCREEN! Lovin’ the whites of his eyes in the color shots and that KILLER look at the end….

  42. …………………………………………………………………………… help me…do not look at me like that savage! sexy thing you!

  43. kat23morg says:

    How do you vote for it on VH1…it is not in the choices to pick from? I imagine it will be next week…

  44. He just keeps getting better. OOOOOOO this video is fantastic. Love seeing Allison. Cant wait to see him August 21st.

  45. I finally heard IIHY played on our local radio station. Sounded great!!!! Keep requesting to your local stations!

  46. KO's smiling says:

    Wow! This is so fun to watch! It’s totally a video for his friends and for his (crazy) fans like us who will watch it over and over to pick out his friends. He looks deliriously happy and totally messes with us with those sexy glances – and he knows it!!! Lemme go watch again….

  47. Jane Parker says:

  51. Glamb #470 says:

    This IS Adam. Always reinventing – LOVE IT!!!

  52. at 2:40 timeline… could the redhead be allison.. ya know from idol.. making an appearance in adam’s video.. correct me.. awesome well done video.. adam so epic!

    • Micki (Glamb #535) says:

      Hi Asle.

      Yes, you did see Alli, at 2:40, 2:45, 3:15 & 3:30. (VH1 behind the scenes vid for this has a nice little Adison moment with a really cute hug between them.)

      In addition to Allison, Ke$ha is there (as per KO’s smiling), at 1:59, 2:12, 2:26, 3:30, & possibly 3:39.

      Also spotted:his friend Cassidy Haley is on the stilts. Last yr during idol tour Adam tweeted about Cassidy making a cool video. He also co-founded Skingraft which Adam & Alli wear so often, & I believe designed his fab blue studded & spiked leather coat with the tails that Adam had for last year’s AI8 tour.

      Other friends of Adams: I think I saw Alison Porter briefly, but it wasn’t clear & I’m not positive I’d recognize her, so not sure. I’ve heard Cheeks & Scarlett Cherry were there but I wouldn’t recognize them, although someone said they recognized their Twitter avatars in the beginning, so they probably were. Also heard on another site that his bf Danielle was there, but I don’t know if she was part of it of just on set.

      Glitter, Glam, Glitz, Peace & Love!

  53. Lyndsey says:

    Can’t Breath…..Can’t Breath….What an amazing, stunning performance by our one and only ADAM!!!!! Adam is so talented, its unbelievable!!! I saw him live right up close and not only is he talented way beyond anyone, his beauty is beyond breathtaking and those eyes……..

  54. f**k! shit! KESHA in IIHY?nasty girl.that kiss was’nt enough?ADAM won’t do anything more.he is GAY and also wants BRAD.

  55. Love it! It’s purely a feast for the eyes! Wish I could join the party!!! Adam made it onto VH1’s top 20 after only 5 days of voting – but we need to VOTE…VOTE…VOTE to move him up the list. Don’t forget!
