Adam Lambert Goes Acoustic, Inspiring on American Idol

by at . Comments

He was introduced by Ryan Seacrest as the person who "truly set the bar for style and spectacle on this stage."

From there, one of the show's all-time favorites toned down his usual performance style, sat on a stool and gave viewers a stripped-down version of "Aftermath," a song with a vital message: You are not alone.

Starting now, fans can actually visit Lambert's official site and purchase the remixed version of this same single, with proceeds benefiting The Trevor Project. It's a worthwhile cause, sponsored by a talented artist.

What did you think of Adam's acoustic return to Idol?

Adam's performance on AI Thurs. nite was outstanding. He showed everyone watching and listening what a talented voice really sounds like live. I don't think there are but a few singers today that can sound as good live as Adam. No autotune for him folks just amazing vocals and that is sitting down. So much harder to do than standing up. I have purchased the remix of Aftermath and love it. Billboardmatt is a genius.

Adam was great. I saw him in concert this summer and was very disappointed. The music and arrangements overwhelmed his wonderful voice. It seemed as if the musicians were more interested in highlighting themselves than Adam. And the gay glitz was overdone - not necessary. Who cares what his private sexual orientation is. Frank Sinatra was a grat ladies man - but he didn't kiss women during his performances. He also had great talent, and great musicians behind him - and there is the operative word 'behind' I thin kit's time for Adam to get new management who will make this young man ionto the real star he was born to be.
