Adam Lambert has performed with current Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor on many occasions, dating back to the 2009 American Idol finale.

So fans around the country have been waiting for the following announcement: the trio is going on tour together!

"This happened organically with Adam," May said this morning at a press conference. "People are going to ask whether it's Queen without [late singer Freddie Mercury]. I don't know. We just want to go out there one more time. Adam isn't an imitator. We're going into new territory."

During a concert in Seoul this week, Adam Lambert made like Rihanna.

No, the former American Idol runner-up didn't get beat up by Chris Brown and then return to his arms years later because he clearly has issues with self-confidence and self-esteem.

But he did cover the track "Stay," much like Vin Diesel randomly did last week as a Valentine's Day gift to his female fans.

Did Lambert at least outdo that action star? How does his version compare to Rihanna? Listen and react now:

A formidable but unlikely duo, Britney Spears and Adam Lambert have just been named Billboard magazine's sexiest woman and man in music.

Agree? Disagree?

The X Factor judge and pop icon and the American Idol runner-up beat hundreds of musicians to the title in a just-released reader poll.

  • Awesome Adam Lambert
  • Britney Spears, Hot Dress

Britney was crowned the Sexiest Woman in Music with 45 percent of the vote, absolutely trouncing second-place Lady Gaga's 12 percent.

Beyonce claimed the third sport, with Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift also featured in the top ten, according to Billboard voters.

Adam Lambert, meanwhile, won the magazine's Sexiest Man in Music title, with Maroon 5 singer / The Voice coach Adam Levine in second.

Teenybopper heart throb Justin Bieber came third, just ahead of Enrique Iglesias, Chris Brown, Usher and Drake. Quite the exclusive list.

What do you think? Who are the sexiest man and woman in music?

Adam Lambert has followed up an historic achievement with a brand new music video.

The former American Idol runner-up finished atop the Billboard 200 chart last week, becoming the first openly gay musician to ever accomplish that feat. So, what does a talented singer do for an encore?

He unveils the official video for "Never Close Our Eyes," giving fans a futuristic look at a depressing world with not nearly enough color or dancing. But have no fear, Lambert is here!

Watch him lead a revolution:

"The one thing that I was really excited about was maybe something sort of science fiction," says Adam of the shoot. "Something kind of New World Order, in the future. Something not of this reality. When we put that out there, a gentleman called Dori Oskowitz came back with an amazing treatment. This director is a really cool guy, totally on the same page as me."

Adam Lambert has made history.

The former American Idol runner-up shot past another famous series alumnus this week and claimed the number-one spot on the Billboard 200 for his latest album, "Trespassing." In doing so, Lambert became the first openly gay man to sit atop the chart.

Yes, Clay Aiken achieved the same status with his 2003 CD, but he did not come out of the closet until five years later.

Of course, the important thing is not Lambert's sexuality; it's his success. The eccentric crooner sold 77,000 units of "Trespassing" in the seven days since its release. Well done, Adam!

Here's a look at the Billboard top five:

  1. Adam Lambert, Trespassing: 77,000
  2. Adele, 21: 63,000
  3. Carrie Underwood, Blown Away: 54,000
  4. Norah Jones, Little Broken Hearts: 45,000
  5. Tenacious D, Rise of the Fenix, 44,000

Reports of Adam Lambert taking over as the lead singer of Queen, for a prolonged summer tour, may have been premature.

But the former American Idol runner-up has now confirmed that he'll stand in as the frontman for this iconic rock band for one unique evening in England.

"I have been invited by Queen to sing one very special concert! Sonisphere at Knebworth July 7th!” the 30-year-old artist Tweeted last night, adding: “Sorry to be coy about the details the past few weeks, but I made a promise to keep it under wraps as best I could. Gonna be a surreal night!”

It's a doubly great day to be an Adam Lambert fan today.

First, the singer announced that he would front an upcoming tour with the remaining band members of Queen, hitting up various arenas and stadiums in honor of late singer Freddie Mercury.

Now, Lambert has released the official music video for his latest single - off his soon-to-be-released album - "Better Than I Know Myself." In it, we see two sides of the singer, as a pair of personalities square off; one is all dark and leather-y, the other calm, serene, sipping on tea even.

Which will win out? Watch and see what happens:

He is the champion, our friends.

Adam Lambert will join iconic band Queen on tour this summer, both sides announced this week, a development that follows the singer's 2009 American Idol finale performance with original members Brian May and Roger Taylor; as well as their teaming up again at the MTV European Music Awards in November.

"The intention is to pay tribute to [late singer Freddie Mercury] and the band by singing some f-cking great songs," Lambert tells Great Britain's The Daily Star. "It’s to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would have been proud of."

Adam Lambert is in full-on album promotional mode.

A few days after releasing the cover art for "Trespassing," the former American Idol favorite is taking fans behind the scenes of his upcoming music video for the first single off that CD, "Better Than I Know Myself."

"Sometimes you screw up or you say something to hurt your partner’s feelings, or you haven’t been supportive," Adam says below. "This song basically owns that, says, ‘Look, I’m sorry. Sometimes I’m not perfect but without you I don’t know what I would do with myself. I need you because you are the only person that knows me better than I know myself."
