Adam Lambert Joins The X Factor

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Ever since there were rumblings years ago that American Idol producers were contemplating filling up the panel with former alums, I’ve wanted to see Adam Lambert judge a singing competition. Today, I finally get my wish. Albeit a different show but still.

The 34-year-old singer is heading down under to join The X Factor Australia for the show’s eighth season. The “Ghost Town” singer will sit alongside Iggy Azalea and Guy Sebastian. A fourth judge will be revealed at a later date.

“I am very excited to join X Factor in Australia and am looking forward to helping people shine their brightest,” the singer told the Daily Telegraph in an interview.“Australia has always been one of my favorite places to tour. The Aussies I’ve met are so kind and good humored – so the thought of getting to live in Sydney is exciting.”

Though he was never a full-time judge on Idol, Lambert stepped in once for Keith Urban during the auditions and proved he could hold his own, providing valid and constructive feedback. Will you watch Lambert on The X Factor? Sound off below.


As much as I love an Adam Lambert ballad, I much prefer him when his vocals soar over a banging club beat. Naturally, his collaboration with Felix Jaehn and Steve Aoki immediately received heavy rotation on my playlist. Love the track. The trio just released the accompanying visual and it’s interesting to say the least.

While I expected a summery tone for the music video, having a chimp as the leading man was unexpected. It would’ve been a nice treat for Glamberts if Adam appeared in the clip, but I guess she was bussay 😉

If you’ve ever wondered what a day in the life of a playboy chimpanzee looked like, check out the “Can’t Go Home” clip below.

Adam Lambert is full of surprises these days. First came the Max Martin-produced “Welcome To The Show” featuring Laleh and now this. The 34-year-old singer is certainly generous to his loyal Glamberts.

If you prefer your Lambert a bit more uptempo, this is your jam. “Can’t Go Home” comes from the masterful hands of DJs Steve Aoki and Felix Jaehn. It’s tailor-made for clubs and festivals.

Personally, I love it. I much prefer Adam on these soaring bass-thumping anthems than broody ballads. Give it a listen below.

As the reigning Top-Earning Idol Alum on Forbes’ annual list, Adam Lambert returned to his former stomping grounds to show exactly why he has that title. The 34-year-old singer slayed both of his performances.

He kicked off the show to deliver a short reprise of his iconic “Mad World” cover during the eighth season of American Idol, where he placed second. Still feel that he was robbed, but oh well.

Later in the show, he seized the opportunity to promote his new single, “Welcome To The Show.” Dress in white leather jacket and matching white high-tops, Lambert brought the house down with his vocals. I have to say, I like the song much more after watching the live performance. Check out both clips below.

Much to the delight of Glamberts, Adam Lambert teased a new single days ago. The 34-year-old teams up with Swedes, producer Max Martin and rising pop singer Laleh. You can’t get any more Swedish than this, even if you were eating meatballs at IKEA with ABBA playing in the background 😉

“I wanted to surprise my fans with a new, uplifting anthem for the spring. I asked Max Martin for help and he paired me up with two great writers and producers; Ali Payami, who worked with me on ‘Ghost Town,’ and Swedish star Laleh who is also a featured vocalist on the track. I feel this song will give people strength to be exactly who they are”

The release comes as a bit of a surprise given Lambert is in the midst of his The Original High Tour. While his fans are hoping this is the sign of a new album just around the corner, me thinks this is just a one-off. He’s scheduled to appear on American Idol and he wisely decided to whip up a new single to promote. After all, look what happened to Kelly Clarkson and the ripple effect of her emotional performance.

Not surprisingly, Adam’s vocals are flawless on “Welcome To The Show.” It’s a great song but I wish it was a bit more uptempo. With a bangin’ remix, the ballad should do damage on Billboard’s Club Chart. Check out his new single below.

He may be in the midst of his The Original High Tour, but that isn’t stopping Adam Lambert from releasing new music. The 34-year-old entertainer is set to drop “Welcome To The Show” later this week. Once again, he’s collaborated with Swedish uber producer Max Martin.

“I wanted to surprise my fans with a new, uplifting anthem for the spring. I asked Max Martin for help and he paired me up with two great writers and producers; Ali Payami, who worked with me on ‘Ghost Town,’ and Swedish star Laleh who is also a featured vocalist on the track. I feel this song will give people strength to be exactly who they are.” – Adam Lambert

Fingers crossed, this is a sign that a new album is on the way. If and when his new LP drops, hopefully it’s better received commercially than his highly-underrated recent album, The Original High. It’s a crime that it didn’t do better on the charts.

Check out the preview for “Welcome To The Show” below. Can’t wait to hear the entire thing.

Been craving new music from Adam Lambert? You’re in luck… sorta.

It’s not exactly a soaring club anthem, but rather a catchy new jingle. The 33-year-old entertainer joins forces with Oreo for their new campaign, Open Up With Oreo. The premise of the initiative is simple- open your heart — like a cookie — to people who are different than you and you’ll discover the similarities.

“It was always this fantasy — wouldn’t it be such a treat to record a song for a TV commercial?” Lambert said to Billboard about this latest endeavor. “The mission statement really spoke to me. They’re encouraging people to look at our similarities as opposed to our differences and that is in line with my philosophy.”

Lambert is just the latest recording artist to work with the cookie company. Tegan and Sara, Owl City and Kacey Musgraves are just a few who have been heard in previous ads. Check out Adam’s “Rolling Wonder” spots below.

Adam Lambert better dust off all that mascara he hasn’t been rocking the past few years. It’s going to come in handy for his new gig.

The 33-year-old was one of the names being considered to play Frank-N-Furter memorably played by Tim Curry. That role eventually went to Orange Is The New Black‘s Laverne Cox. It appears that the American Idol Season 8 runner-up will be part of the Rocky Horror Picture Show remake after all.

Lambert is that latest marquee name to join FOX’s remake. He’ll play Eddie, “the rock-n-roll loving, ex-delivery boy, who emerges at Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s on a motorcycle and crashes the party.” Meatloaf played the part in the original 1975 film.

“I grew up watching Rocky Horror, but could never imagine that I would be part of this new vision. Rocky Horror always made me feel like it was okay to celebrate my weirdness. Hallelujah, bless my soul! I love that old time rock-n-roll!” – Adam Lambert

Lambert and Cox will join Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan who will play Janet and Brad- the roles made famous by Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick. The two-hour TV event, which will not be live, will air sometime this Fall. Excited that Lambert has joined the cast? Weigh in below.
