A few years ago when Adam Lambert was between the American Idol Tour and releasing his first album, For Your Entertainment, bloggers were on fire about him appearing on ‘Glee.’ But Adam shot down the idea while appearing on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show.
AceShowBiz.com (10/31/09) reports “Adam Lambert has confirmed that he has not received a formal invitation to appear on the musical series. He told Seacrest ‘I think that’s just a rumor, I haven’t heard anything officially about that.’ The news that the “American Idol” graduate would pay “Glee” a visit came from the co-creator of the show himself, Ryan Murphy. He told EW a week ago that he was ‘considering approaching’ Lambert to appear on the show.”
Then the fires got fueled again when we heard from ‘Glee’ castmember Lea Michele, in a 11/6/09 MTV.com article by James Montgomery (@positivnegativ): “Glee Star Lea Michele Is Determined To Land Adam Lambert Cameo: ‘I feel like I’d be getting to work out at the gym with the best trainer in the world,’ she says of singing with ‘American Idol’ runner-up.”
And that was that. We never heard any more about it, until now.
This week The Hollywood Reporter’s Shirley Halperin brought up the idea to Adam about appearing on ‘Glee’ and he responded with “I think there were murmurs about it. Hopefully, maybe now that I have some new music, I could go on there.” Now Pop Crush’s Cristin Maher is taking the idea farther. Read on for her article, and click the link at the end for the conclusion.
I’m just dying to see if anyone throws a slushee on Adam!

Adam Lambert is a Gleek! The ‘Better Than I Know Myself’ singer recently gushed about ‘Glee‘ in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, and even spoke about his dream to one day guest star on the show. However, unlike the many famous guest stars who have appeared on past episodes of the musical series, Lambert wouldn’t want to play a fictional character, but would actually want to portray himself.
First, Lambert spoke about his hopes to snag a ‘Glee’ guest spot someday, and how he is eagerly awaiting a call from the execs at Fox. “I don’t know, ask them,” Lambert told THR when asked why he hasn’t been offered an acting spot on ‘Glee.’ “I think there were murmurs about it. Hopefully, maybe now that I have some new music, I could go on there.” The new music Lambert is referring to, in case you are living under a rock, is his second album ‘Trespassing,’ slated for released on March 20.
Unlike other ‘Glee’ guest stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, who portrayed substitute teacher Holly Holliday, and Neil Patrick Harris, who played Will Schuester’s nemesis Bryan Ryan, Lambert wants to keep his guest role as truthful as possible. How will he do this? By playing himself, of course! “I want to just be me,” Lambert said. “Why do I have to be a fictional character?” Can you just imagine Lambert engaging in a rockin’ sing-off with one of the many ‘Glee’ regulars? Or perhaps appearing as an inspirational figure to a struggling member of the New Directions?
