Adam Lambert Covers Bob Marley, Asks: Is This Love?

by at . Comments

Adam Lambert did his own version of Bob Marley this week. But the real question is this:

Did he do the reggae legend proud?

Down Under in Australia to promote his album "Trespassing," Lambert performed inside Sydney’s Top 40 Live Lounge and surprised those in attendance with his cover of “Is This Love," a Marley favorite from 1978.

Give it a look and a listen now and prepare for Lambert to soon hit the States with a tour:

Adam Rocks! He did Marley proud. I have loved him from the begining. I have all of his CD's and each one just gets better and better. "Trespassing" is one fine CD. Buy it-You will love it!

The best part about Adam is you never know what to expect with him. He changes up songs all the time and then all of a sudden he comes up with a new cover song out of the blue for whatever reason and kills it. I bet the Biebs, Perry, Taylor, 1D or whoever couldn't do this. He gets off a plane or out of a car and says, "I think I'll sing this song today." Guys, can you play it and he has to use a cheat sheet for some of the words and yet if you heard it without seeing him, you'd think he practiced it lots.

Amazing. He is so talented; I can't believe he didn't win America Idol. I bet his career ends up way better than Kris Allen's does.

Not only did Adam do reggae proud but I believe Marley lit up a super spliff up there and had a huge smile on his face! The song is totally about love and that is something Adam has in abundance (as well as tremendous talent!)
