      • Sun&Stars says:

        Thanks for the update. I just turned the tv on at work to view it. I can’t thank you enough for the update.

        • Your very welcome! How gorgeous did he look today on Regis and Kelly, ahh he has such great style, i liked his skinny black tie!~

          • I just wish Regis had followed up on swapping ties. That would’ve been hillarious!

  2. Danislytherin says:

    Adam Lambert Rocks!!!,I can not wait to buy your CD or DVD, or both! Brazil love Adam!

  3. Finnadamfan says:

    You really make me feel good, Adam!
    Finland is waiting you!

  4. Perfect. So intimate (despite untenable conditions). It doesn’t get much better than that. And look at his bright, sunny smile – the way he appreciates the applause; not considering it his due. I just cannot understand how it is this wonderful man came in second. It will forever escape me. I applaud him for supporting Kris’s win – but his loss is still a crying shame.

    Thanks for posting this, Dreamsound.

  5. Johanna says:

    Amazing! He sounds and looks so good even like you said, in freezing conditions. He should come here in Finland to perform 🙂

    I’m so waiting for the dope record he’s gonna make! I am a classical singer and listen very few pop music, but Adam I just heard once and I was blown away. He can sing everything and that is a talent.

    • JRZGRL1 says:

      Hello. I am also a classical singer AND I have been to Finland (business meeting in Turku, 4 days, June 2001, one night in Helsinki – wish it could have been longer – beautiful, beautiful country) – also absolutely blown away by Adam. We all love him but I think those of us who know something about singng have the added blessing of knowing how incredibly talented and vocally skilled he is. And then there’s the performance energy/charisma. It doesn’t get better than this, in my opinion – I can hardly wait.

  6. AdamRocks! says:

    Just lovely. Did this already air on TV?

  7. OH, GOD, It’s Tuesday, and I miss him SOOOOOOOOOOOOO Much…..KDQ7

  8. Japadam says:

    There are lots of his fans here in Asia,too.

    His vocal is unbelievable.

    Japan love you, Adam.

  9. Gioconda says:

    THANK YOU SO MUCH ….. it will be kind of sad not to have ADAM every week…. ,,,so thank you again for the videos

    Gioconda

  10. chris kennedy says:

    This dude wil be the biggest thing in our time. Anyone who doubts it knows knowing about the buying public. I have not bought a CD in five years but I will for this artist, what a talent!

  11. Best performance ever on AI. Thanks for posting so we can hear it again.

  12. Gioconda says:

    Hey guys this is a great video of Adam the day of his audition in SF
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ViIacV4ejY

  13. How glorious! Oh Adam! *swoon*

  14. I didn’t see this scheduled on Adam’s schedule of tv appearances… will this air later?

  15. Does anyone know if this will be airing on tv and when? Thanks!

  16. Does anyone out there know why Adam’s live performance at CBS Early Show was not listed on his calendar of events? I missed it because I didn’t know.. It aired on the West Coast this morning, but
    no mention of it on here or on another website that had a schedule of Adam’s tv appearances.

  17. nancy sponable says:

    It never aired no reason why now they are saying it was taped and will be shown on Thursday’s show.

  18. MarCanada says:

    Hey everybody: it’s airing Thursday morning, on CBS Early Show, before 9 a.m. for sure (not sure of exact time). I’m from Canada and on iTunes, Mad World is No. 5 ahead of No Boundaries (No. 8 I believe). Adam makes people forget about their troubles and the world’s problems. That’s what entertainment is all about – a vice and good distraction that leaves you with enduring happy thoughts. It’s important to give back to this world, and Adam does that through his music and his sweet and caring personality. I’ve already bought my stage seat for the Idol tour stop in Hamilton, Ont. LOVE YOU ADAM!

  19. Anything Adam sings is great!! I cant wait to see him in concert on idol tour, certainly cant wait for his album. Adam Rocks!!!

  20. Joyce Adamczak says:

    Adam Lambert rocks my world.

  21. ilyadam123 says:

    hes simply amazing! everything he does is amazing!

  22. Connie from Chile says:

    OMG, OMG, OMG!!! he’s soooo amaizing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Suse1701 says:

    Can’t wait to see it Thursday. I not only thank GOD for Adam, but I thank God he came around after we had DVRs, blogs and YouTube. I would be going into major withdrawals tomorrow if not for these! And thanks for being at the pulse of it all Dreamsound – you rock!

  24. THIS IS JUST WHAT I NEEDED TODAY!! I AM SINCERELY GOING THRU ADAM-WITHDRAWLS!!!!! YHANX SO MUCH FOR POSTING THIS!! I’LL BE WATCHING CBS THURS. MORN AND TAPING ADAM,AS USUAL!! LOVE-PEACE ADAM!!!!!

  25. I just called CBS Early Show in New York and asked if Adam was on this morning (as my online TV Guide said he was) or was he going to be on Thursday as some site was reporting.. He told me that
    the Adam segment was taped today in NY, but it will air on Thursday for sure and that I was getting it
    straight from the source….. so much for the accuracy of TV Guide…
    So Adam will be on Thursday morning on CBS Early Show! Enjoy!

  26. God he is amazing i love him so much he is too good to be true 🙂 the wind was strong and even though he managed to do great job as always God he is the best ever period 🙂

  27. WannabeMRS.Glambert says:

    Adam I just LOVE you……………….omg………..

    that has to be hard to focus because of 1)wind! 2)morning 3)freezing

    I got my Adam fix at the gym listening to him on my ipod………….

    and now I get to see him yay

  28. Mermasia says:

    I love listening to this song and to hear the full version is totally awesome. Thanks for posting it because I love it! I hope Adam has it on his first CD. I can’t wait to buy the first of them in a series of many. Adam Rocks!!!

    The mermaid~

  29. Lisa R. says:

    Adam, you will be world famous long after no one remembers Kris. PLEASE do a one man concert in NYC. I will sit up front and later try to hug and kiss you. Whew, just fantisizing.
    I will miss seeing your divine talent every week. I won’t see the Idol tour as then I’d have to listen to all that cannot compare to you. Hope your cd comes out soon, and maybe a movie about the early Elvis. You are gorgeous. What eyes, teeth, smile, nose, body, you are perfect and so sweet, smart, kind and gentlemanly. Let’s do a Will and Grace. LOL

    luv ya, Lisa

  30. Glambertfan says:

    Adam rocks …. glad Idol is over so we can move on to the stuff we really want to see from adam 🙂

  31. AT&T CHEATED!

    We Adam fans should strenuously protest the results because of AT&T ‘s unfair conduct. An article posted on nytimes.com’s homepage May 26th confirms what Adam fans had suspected all along — that he was robbed. The article states, “AT&T…might have influenced the outcome of this year’s competition by providing phones for free text-messaging services and lessons in casting blocks of votes at parties organized by fans of Kris Allen…” Meanwhile, “[t]here appear to have been no similar efforts to provide free texting services to supporters of Adam Lambert…”

    WTF! If that’s not cheating, then I don’t know what is. I like Kris and think he is a nice guy and that he does have talent. But Adam is much more talented and many other people — including notable musicians like Smokey Robinson — also thought so.

    What the Fox network should do is acknowledge this abuse and declare that this year there will in fact be two American Idols. That’s the only way to make up for this travesty and for the show to reclaim some of its integrity.

    Come on Adam fans, are you with me? Let’s raise hell with Fox and AT&T!

    • I agree with it. You know what, it is just easy to say that, “Oh yeah we better accfpet it since Adam accepted it with all of his sincerity considering that Kris and him are friends”. But come’ on guys! How about for those people who made an effort to vote for him? Those people who spent the four hours of voting just to secure the number of votes we had for him. Those people who texted unlimitedly ans those people who downloaded for gizmo just to have a number of votes to be counted on the night after the performance. Those people are hoping that all of their efforts will be paid off. It is just simple, “self satisfaction”. You spent money and time just to ensure that we have a new american idol, that is competitive, adorable, talented, likeable, and most of all, someone that is ICONIC. That is the reason why the process of this competition is being done through popular votes. If you will take that against them. If they felt that they are being defeted, there is no other reason to exercise our democracy to vote accordingly. Well what if it will happen again next year? Even in a general election, there is even what we call, ELECTORAL TRIBUNAL who will oversee the complaints for election fraud. If that is the case, since American Idol is exercising the same process to elect or select a winner, then they should also exercise the diplomatic way of addressing this kind of electoral protest. What you think guys?! speak up!

  32. Panseyy says:

    WOW! Thanks for the posting of Adam singing Mad World….and the preview of coming attractions. It is Tues and I am missing my dose of Adam tonight. I, too, am feeling withdrawals. Adam looks happy and well rested – glad to see it. Thanks again Dreamsound!

  33. I miss you Adam. I love you. I will watch the Idol concert for YOU. I will be on the lookout for music news about YOU. YOU are all I care to see and hear. I am so proud to love the true Idol.

  34. rhmart: I found the article, though it wasn’t easy because you have to go to the ‘Media and Advertising’ section at the bottom to click on this story.. seems kind of buried.. Here’s the story:

    AT&T May Have Swayed ‘Idol’ Results

    By EDWARD WYATT
    Published: May 26, 2009

    LOS ANGELES — AT&T, one of the biggest corporate sponsors of “American Idol,” might have influenced the outcome of this year’s competition by providing phones for free text-messaging services and lessons in casting blocks of votes at parties organized by fans of Kris Allen, the Arkansas singer who was the winner of the show last week.

    Representatives of AT&T, whose mobile phone network is the only one that can be used to cast “American Idol” votes via text message, provided the free text-messaging services at two parties in Arkansas after the final performance episode of “American Idol” last week, according to the company and people at the events.

    There appear to have been no similar efforts to provide free texting services to supporters of Adam Lambert, who finished as the runner-up to Mr. Allen.

  35. Awesome, the full version. It’s not easy singing in a tornado 🙂

  36. adamfan66 says:

    My God, what a beautiful voice he has. And he has the looks to go with his voice. I listen to his songs everyday and can’t get enough.I am so looking forward to his CD. I’ve never felt this way about any performer since Elvis. Love you Adam!

  37. The Legend says:

    READ BELOW…I KNOW WE HAVE ALL MOVED ON AS ADAM AS RUNNER-UP, BUT EVIDENCE KEEPS EMERGING ABOUT ARKANSAS AND AT & T’ S SHENNANIGANS…HOW DID 2.8 MILLION GET 38 MILLION VOTES ? MORE MISSING PIECES COMING TOGETHER.
    NO ONE DID THIS IN SAN DIEGO, AT & T DID NOT HOST PARTIES…

    AT&T May Have Swayed ‘Idol’ Results
    By EDWARD WYATT
    LOS ANGELES — AT&T, one of the biggest corporate sponsors of “American Idol,” might have influenced the outcome of this year’s competition by providing phones for free text-messaging services and lessons in casting blocks of votes at LARGE parties organized by fans of Kris Allen, the Arkansas singer who was the winner of the show last week.

    Representatives of AT&T, whose mobile phone network is the only one that can be used to cast “American Idol” votes via text message, provided the free text-messaging services at two parties in Arkansas after the final performance episode of “American Idol” last week, according to the company and people at the events.

    There appear to have been no similar efforts to provide free texting services to supporters of Adam Lambert, who finished as the runner-up to Mr. Allen.

    Since then, angry supporters of Mr. Lambert have flooded online chat boards with messages claiming irregularities in the competition’s voting.

    Officials of Fox Broadcasting declined to discuss the situation. In a statement issued Tuesday, a spokesman for AT&T said, “In Arkansas, we were invited to attend the local watch parties organized by the community. A few local employees brought a small number of demo phones with them and provided texting tutorials to those who were interested.”

    Details of the voting support were first reported last week in an article in The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

    Representatives of AT&T helped fans of Mr. Allen at the two Arkansas events by providing instructions on how to send 10 or more text messages at the press of a single button, known as power texts. Power texts have an exponentially greater effect on voting than do single text messages or calls to the show’s toll-free phone lines. The efforts appear to run afoul of “American Idol” voting rules in two ways. The show broadcasts an on-screen statement at the end of each episode warning that blocks of votes cast using “technical enhancements” that unfairly influence the outcome of voting can be thrown out.

    And the show regularly states that text voting is open only to AT&T subscribers and is subject to normal rates.

  38. beautiful…such a class act and he looks very handsome!

  40. loveadam4life says:

    OMG Adam Lambert .. iloveyou!

    Thanks DreamSound

  41. Just wanted to say that Adam is so awesome. He should have won and I was sad when he didn’t.
    In retrospect though I think it is just as well as he is not a pop idol he’s a rock idol. I think he in fact would have been stifled by the song choices and the expectations on him to perform like a pop idol. This way he gets to make his cd and sing whatever he wants to and the paying public will buy it because we love him.

  42. Adam,
    Always sont tresbeau an looks chilly but hering toi voice warmes within l’hearte..What a beautful voice ethereal,an angelique!
    So misse seeing him evri week on Idol,an felte sad when he loss..Yet know will have an estraordinaire musique career an continue to make heartefelte songes always transcende

  43. Oh…It’s so great . I very very like it .
    Love you , Adam !! [^^]
    Thank you very much , Dreamsound

  44. therese says:

    Something should be done about the unfair process of AT&T during the voting. THAT SHOULD BE CONDEMNED IF ADAM WAS REALLY ROBBED OF THE VOTES!!! What can be done about it?

  45. maryanne says:

    I miss Adam sooo much already! I hope he comes to Cebu, Philippines. We love him here.

  46. ADAM is super great and super sexy !!! Cant wait to buy his albums. Go, Adam.

  47. DallasB says:

    They just said that AT&T FIX the AI on Good Morning American

  48. I agree with it. You know what, it is just easy to say that, “Oh yeah we better accept it since Adam accepted it with all of his sincerity considering that Kris and him are friends”. But come’ on guys! How about for those people who made an effort to vote for him? Those people who spent the four hours of voting just to secure the number of votes we had for him. Those people who texted unlimitedly and those people who downloaded for gizmo just to have a number of votes to be counted on the night after the performance.

What you think guys?! speak up!

  49. Thanks for the update on the cheating from AT&T–I knew it and knew that it would leak out at some point. There was a journalist who wrote that someone nameless (as usual) at AI said that the “vote wasn’t even close” meaning Kris got so many votes that it he was the clear winner. I guess AI thinks that people are idiots.

    It’s disgusting that a sponsor would send in their employees to cheat and determine who wins after millions of people were suckered into watching AI all season because of Adam’s stellar performances. Had it not been for Adam along with Allison and Danny–AI would have had lower ratings. I had not watched that show until I heard about Adam Lambert. I’ll never watch it again.

    There is probably more to this cheating scandal than we can fathom. I doubt the cheating was just some rogue AT&T employees that pulled this off.

    Anyway, Adam is amazing!!

  50. Gail123 says:

    To all the Adam fans that post videos & extra info for the International fan outside the USA – thank you so very much – if it were not for the internet & your support – we wouild go crazy we can’t even download on itunes outside of the US – so fustrating. ADAM is HUGE all over the world -so thanks to all of you for keeping us incontact with this amaizing artist. Keep the info coming – we need it XXX

  51. I can’t get enough Adam! I keep searching the internet for news, appearances, YouTubes…… I want this kid to make it…. he is so authentic, genuine, talented, gifted….. positive. Wish there were more people like him in the world.

  52. Thanks so much for posting. On my cable line up it said Adam was suppose to be on in MA on Tue. So I was disapointed when it wasn’t shown.
    I love this site 🙂

  53. Calabrisella says:

    What can be done about AT&T cheating??? How about when Adam is an international superstar in a year from now, and everyone will be saying.. Kris who??
    Caught Adam on Regis and Kelly.. WOW.. BEST RENDITION OF MAD WORLD I HAVE EVER HEARD…. You go Adam!!

  54. Oh yeah, and it was so funny when Kelly said something like “Adam’s fans are called Glamberts… and Regis’ fans are called Regects”.

    Guys! our Adam is way behind by kris allen. just rank number 7! Where are his fans? where are we? Please do our part. Lets not just keep on talking but there should always have an action out of it. This is the only chance that we could regain our lost from our defeat last week! the fans of Kris are campaigning from all their local radio stations to play his songs! Most of them are downloading his songs in i tunes. You kn0w what, I should not have to tell this but now i know why we lost. Or should I say why Adam did not win in american idol. IT is because we lack action. Think about it. Though we have done our part but it is not enough
