Adam Lambert Rings, Rocks in the New Year

by at . Comments

He was one of the most successful, memorable celebrities of 2009.

Therefore, it was only appropriate that Adam Lambert put on a show to close out his first year in the spotlight.

The American Idol runner-up did just that in Hollywood last night, rocking out at Paramount Studios and ringing in 2010 with fans (and Pamela Anderson, apparently).

Don't worry: no crotches were grabbed, oral sex simulated or animals harmed during the performance. Check out pictures from it below:

On the East Coast, Jennifer Lopez actually did her best Lambert impression, donning an unusual outfit and thrusting her privates into the face of a back-up dancer. Watch her concert, and comment on her clothing, now.

I am sure Adam was fantastic. He looked happy and gorgeous! Unfortunately, we could not see him....BBBBBOOOOOOOO. I am wondering when all this "Adam's TV obstruction" will end??!! Maybe in 2010?

Amazing - I don't have words for how fantastic he was. Anyone who watched him do Whole Lotta Love who still doesn't think this man is a rock god - needs their head examined. Scorching hot vocals and so much passion!

This performance was the highlight of NYE counting in all network shows...i watched them and Adam left them in the dust...His rendition of Soaked, all other songs on his cd and the final encore of Whole lotta of Love was unbelievable...Kudos to Pamela for picking him to be the headliner...Kudos to Adam for doing this for the Red Cross...Thumbs down to ABC, NBC and CBS for ignoring a huge star in the making...I wonder is someone from the networks going to fuss about J Lo grinding a male dancer's face in her crotch? Not...hypocrites they all are.
