After Adam Lambert’s jaw dropping performance singing with Queen on MTV’s EMAs, the Irish Times has declared everything we’ve known about Adam on this side of the Atlantic for almost 3 years. They even call him a “megastar in the making.” I beg to differ, but we Glambs and Glamberts already think he’s arrived! 🙂
Here’s the text from the article. My heart glows even more with each new paragraph. I’m so proud to be an Adam Lambert fan! 🙂

If anyone was in any doubt that Adam Lambert was a superstar-in-waiting, his performance with Queen at the MTV EMA 2011 will dispel any question of whether or not this singer is the real deal. Lambert’s adoring fans have known for a couple of years that their hero has everything it takes to be a total musical icon. His introduction to the limelight was of course on American Idol and his amazing vocal range, total charisma and androgynous beauty made the United States sit up and take notice.
This artist is brimming with star quality and has all the credentials to be the biggest pop/rock phenomenon on the planet for the next five years. If the work ethic muscle continues to be flexed and lady luck smiles Adam could seriously be on the way to another stratosphere.
It’s like a powerful machine with all the necessary components firmly in position and the engine is ready to roar. The mechanical side of things is in perfect working order – great albums already recorded with another even better one ready to drop and that undeniably killer voice ready to be unleashed. The sleek chrome-plated design is also prepared and polished – Adam’s sartorial sparkle and image so elegantly complete the picture.
Some artists are all about the music and others have an image bigger than their actual talent, whereas this singer shines like a diamond in both departments. Gifted and glamorous in equal measure Lambert is set to blow through the industry like a stylish swaggering superstar storm and claim his place as the new king of the download charts.
Speaking of royalty, the manner in which he tackled those throat-bursting Queen anthems was an astounding spectacle to behold. There is no hiding place when it comes to taking on a Freddie Mercury vocal and the medley of musical monuments were expertly executed by Lambert with room to spare. May, Taylor (and Deacon) were genuinely thrilled to have him on board and I’m sure Freddie would most definitely have approved of the band’s choice for microphone duties on the night.
Credit where it is due – Adam Lambert is an awesome performer and a megastar in the making.
The fact is that he always has been; it’s just been kept a bit of a secret until now.
