'American Idol': What's your favorite Adam Lambert YouTube clip?

It has been three days since Adam Lambert’s show-stopping performance of Tears for Fears’ ’80s hit "Mad World." And tragedy! We have to wait another four days until we get another sure-to-be-thrilling show from him on Tuesday’s Idol. So, let us help tide you over a bit. The artist’s YouTube collection is quite expansive and worth an afternoon of trolling. But, instead of that, how about just one of our faves? Here, you’ll find Lambert performing "Is Anybody There?" as Hebrew slave Joshua (random, I know!) in LA’s 2004 production of The Ten Commandments: The Musical:

Kinda weird? Yah. But isn’t everything Lambert performs just a tad unsettling? Unquestionably, yah. I love that he brings his over-the-top, screaming theatrics to the role (fast-forward to about 3:15 for when he starts really wailing).

PopWatchers, do you have a treasured Adam Lambert clip on YouTube? Could it possibly be him singing "As Long As You’re Mine" from Wicked? (I lurrrve that song.) Share the link to your beloved clip in the comments!

    Is that Val Kilmer?

    Musical theater is the appropriate place for that kind of “wailing”. Until this year, one of the AI ‘rules’ was no ‘theater’ performances. Why is it now okay? Lambert is talented, but he’s not pop. A lot of the backlash around him is because of this. Previous contestants were harshly judged when they did theatrical over the top performances—but now it’s okay?

    Love this one! Upright Cabaret. Adam singing OneRepublic’s Come Home. Absolutely stunning!

  • Freidag

    Um, fuzislyprs, if you have an issue with whether or not Adam can sing pop, check out the link I provided above. He’s very talented.

  • Adam Lambert Sucks

    Isn’t there a youtube clip of him somewhere making out with a dude? If so that one is my favorite. He’s a Broadway actor on a pop music contest. He’s awful, I mean seriously what would an album of this screecher sound like? Ever heard of the Darkness? If not Google them and listen.

  • Connor

    Well, the Mad World performance. What more can I say

  • BS

    What is this? Never in my life have i seen American Idol in their history of 8 seasons that they have so deliberately, distastefully and shamefully pimped a contestant (even if he/she is good) to the extent that they get an article all about himself. Considering the amount of air-time he is being given from AI and affiliated media (meaning YOU EW.com), it has just been blatant propaganda about Adam Lambert and not even a squeak on other contestants! Why doesn’t the show just tell Adam has won? Which he HAS NOT yet. So please, producers, either you give EVERY other contestants equal air-time OR quit shoving Adam down the public’s throats.

    Well, I think “theatrical” was a comment more aimed at contestants whose performances were more “old fashioned” musical theatre. And no one in the history of AI has had the vocal range or technique of Adam. He truly can sing anything. And he doesn’t always “wail.” LOL Check out some of the other YouTube vids of his and see.

  • amber

  • amber

  • Adam Lambert Sucks

    Let’s also not forget that he did the Gary Jules version of the Tears for Fears song that was in Donnie Darko and that it WAS NOT ORIGINAL and he did NOT give credit for the arrangement.

  • katri

    My favorites are “What’s Up?” (4 Non Blondes) and “As Long As Your Mine”. Both for his vocals. And oh, “Dancing Through Life” — because, as a Wicked fan, he’s one of the few Fiyeros who sang it a bit differently. Plus, he’s probably the best dancer of all the Fiyeros I’ve watched.

  • Gaby

    “Is Anybody Listening is my favorite, but I love all the videos from his Zodiac Show performances. OTT for sure, but amazing non-the-less

  • amber

    thts wat i thought -.- so how many of yall think that adam is cute?

  • SDTim

    Yes, Freidag, Come Home IS beautifully done. And I love this performance of CRAZY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBlmcak7cuA
    Don’t get the “haters” and they’re talk about all the “pimping” Adam gets this season. Hello? Danny Gokey? He was getting MAJOR pimpage the whole beginning of the season, and still is! Lil Rounds? MAJOR pimpage… in fact, they were the two “Chosen Ones” to win, until Adam’s performances showed him to be technically the better singer. I was a very early fan of Danny’s (still like his voice) and not very fond of Adam, but Adam’s style and ability has won me over. Go ADAM!
