Adam Lambert responds to 'American Idol' exec producer Ken Warwick: 'I don't feel like I'm struggling at all'

In anticipation of Adam Lambert’s appearance as a mentor on American Idol this week, Idol exec. producer Ken Warwick told EW on Monday that “at the moment [Lambert's] not doing quite as well [in his career].” Warwick explained that he hoped Lambert’s appearance on Idol would help put him “back firmly where he belongs, as a major star,” adding that “it kind of breaks my heart to see someone with that much talent struggle a bit.”

EW caught up with Lambert at Idol last night during a post-show press Q&A, and asked him about Warwick’s comments. “It’s so sweet of him,” Lambert replied lightheartedly. “I don’t feel like I’m struggling at all. I think things are right where they need to be. My single ‘What Do You Want From Me,’ is just breaking into the Top 10 right now.” The track, which Lambert will perform during tonight’s Idol results show, is currently at No. 13 on Billboard’s Pop chart, and number 23 on the Billboard Hot 100, having peaked at No. 20.

“I’m really glad that they had me on the show,” Lambert added. “I really enjoyed helping the other contestants.” So what it was like for him to sit in the Idol studio audience instead of perform on the stage? “It was a trip being out there,” Lambert said. “My mom was sitting next to me tonight, and she was like, ‘This is what it used to be like for us! We used to sit here and we got so nervous and we’d be chewing our gum really hard and we’d be going Oh god, I hope he does a good job!‘”

    • Adam’s fans are stinky and sweaty

      Adam is NOT beautiful.
      ADAM IS VERY UGLY.
      IN THE INSIDE AND OUT.

      • LT

        hahahaha! bittersweet up there! are you a lo#s#r. you must be someone’s fan???? anyway, thanks for commenting it shows people can really talk about adam and you contributed one. the more you talk about adam, the more he becomes popular.

      • Sally in Chicago

        Can he wear anymore makeup? He looks like a Wax figure!
        As for mentoring, I think it’s time for Idol to bring out Kimberly Locke as a mentor, and Carrie Underwood and some other Idols. It’s clear they’re pushing Adam …. but it’s their show they can do what they want to.
        Go DWTS!

      • AdamAdam

        How old are you ? 12 ? 13 ? It shows big time. First, finish your school. It will help you understand quality and beauty.

      • SissySpacek

        True Chicago. This proves that 19E is as crooked, fake, and corrupt as they come.

      • MrsRobinson

        “It’s like that high school mentality: If you’re looking and putting energy into it, something about it is fascinating you, whether you like to admit it or not. I got your attention, that’s why you’re spewing negative hate at me, so I’m doing something right.” . . . Adam Lambert

      • Judy

        OK I stink and I sweat!!!! Don’t you??? It’s better than having some stupid human being like possessing SO MUCH HATE for Adam’s fans because YOU are jealous of his success. WTF!!

      • Luce

        Ugly comment is ugly. Obviously, he’s a gorgeous person, inside and out. It’s not difficult to see. But if you want to take the time to comment on Adam, go for it.

      • ej

        Wow, the last I heard the ratings were down for American Idol, most people are watching Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday night. In fact most media outlets are reporting that this is one of the worst seasons for American Idol. So, how is it that the Idol exec thinks that if he had Adam on the show will help his career because he is struggling? It’s almost as if they had him on the show to raise the ratings because let’s face it there are fans out there that like Adam’s singing capabilities and look past the fact that he is gay. I have not watched American Idol since the first season when Kelly Clarkson won. The only reason I tune in this season is because I heard about a contestant, Siobahn Magnus who has the “pipes” of Kelly Clarkson and the “flare” of Adam Lambert. I applaud people who stay true to themselves, who doesn’t let the main stream of society change who they are. Let’s give credit where it belongs.. and if it is to have Adam on the show to raise the viewing population, which we will hear about by the weeks end, then a thank you is in order for how a gifted singer can carry his fans to raise the ratings! Because it’s not the show doing it!!

      • AliFran

        @Stacy – Wow, you must have been so disappointed to discover Siobhan is really just a spoiled little whiny girl who thinks she is the next Kelly/Adam mix. What delusional person told you that?

      • awesome

        How sad you actually think that way. Adam is truly a beautiful human being inside and out. Your loss…..

      • Mitch Lambert

        You Are An Idiot!!

      • judy

        I think Adam did a great job. And he is not ugly!!!! He is such a nice person inside and out. He was honest and helpful.

      • Adamazing

        Ummm yeah…go back to VFTW and play with your idiot friends Dafeedil…Fender..Fcktoob and the rest of the no lifes.

      • Nina

        Dude, I think you’re talking about yourself. Put down the mirror.

      • lynne Wener

        Adam is BEAUTIFUL BOTH INSIDE and OUT!! It astounds me that there are such nasty trolls out there that are SO embittered that they can’t see the forest for the trees.

        ADAM ROCKS!! ADAM RULES!!

      • elbeemy

        ADAM was the greatest mentor ! he did a GREAT JOB ! EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS !! he has TRUE TALENTS
        btw, talent people always draw “jealousy” from other artis fan such as many JEALOUS comments above…hahahahaha….LETs CELEBRATE !!! these people ended up constantly stir more attention to ADAM !! They could not sleep last night !!

      • Lin

        i don’t understand why ppl who don’t like adam bother reading articles about him and feel the need to comment, i wish you haters gave me the opportunity to comment on you :)

      • silkrose

        @Sally in Chicago

        The reason Adam wears so much makeup is because he is freckled. If you see his pics as a kid, he was sandy/reddish blond.

      • AreUstupidorJealous?

        Jealousy is that you???
        hahaha
        Thanks for the laugh. You sound like a fool with your ridiculous comments.. just so you know. If you want credibility.. at least come off as being somewhat intelligent. Instead of like a 10 year old..

      • Ellen

        Especially inside. After his rude comments about his fans and Susan Boyle I cannot say he is anything but ugly on the inside. Not to mention the ridiculous answer to the fur question, his attitude in general.

      • anonymous

        JUDGE NOT LEST YE BE JUDGED. ALL HUMAN BEINGS ARE BOTH BEAUTIFUL AND UGLY ON THE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE. YOU LACK PERSPECTIVE, FRIEND.

      • Carolyn

        It must be tough having a chip on your shoulder- and being the criticizer-you must think you are perfect… but you’re not because Adam is a sweet, nice guy- you on the other hand are the ugly one on the inside with all of your hate and bigotry…

      • Pigsoink

        I bet you are one ugly person inside/out. Why do you even bother checking articles about Adam? take your pills and chill!!!

      • Minerva

        Are you old enough to comment? Your post are extremely immature

      • Krista

        wow classy AND subtle

      • Jody

        Obviously you know Adam which gives you the insight into his personality. Pity more folks don’t spread your brand of light and joy.

      • Cathie

        You can see his insides?? x-ray vision perhaps. Is U daddy jor-el?

      • Suzanne

        What an idiot! Typical adolescent meanness!

      • Tom

        Seriously Adam was a very astute mentor and probably helped Idol uphold their ratings against DWTS. I honestly don’t think Adam needs to worry. He creates a buz where ever he goes and that is what it takes to make – that combined with talent and no denies he has amazing pipes.

      • ianaleah

        @LT, when you talk about others, it tells us all about you,not them.
        ———————————–
        Helen Keller said;”Life is an adventure or nothing.”
        Adam is having a great adventure, living his life. And there are people -esp fans of other contestants- who are jealous, bitter, resentful of all the attention going to Adam and not their fave. So they waste their own time and energy reading about articles on Adam to bash him, not knowing the bad energy of negativity stays in their aura and causes problems-”one dam thing after another”‘If it’s not one thing it’s another”. Yup, they are their own worst enemies, not Adam’s.
        High vibes, good energy, brings lucky coincidences and lucking out.
        God is LOVE, and love in your mind is God in your mind, therefore, love is the win mode.
        And the science of resonance/energy proves it.

      • ianaleah

        Adam’s fans are here cuz we read all articles about Adam. Adam’s bashers are her cuz they can’t stand all the interest,and love for Adam and they are sooooo jealous, esp fans of other past idol contestants. Ha1

      • Sally in Chicago

        I just don’t understand why it is that Adam makes me as moist as a snack cake.

      • dc

        It seems like being talentless is a prerequisite to become a super star.

      • iSky

        I agree.

        …Love the name, btw. xD

      • sue

        JEALOUS!

      • Beauty

        @Sally In Chicago & @SissySpacek

        Adam’s appearance ALONE rallied American Idol’s ratings to not only BEAT Dancing With The Stars that night, but to some of their best ratings EVER! ☺ (look it up)

        Also, DWTS had one of their crappy house/lounge singers sing Adam Lambert’s first single “For Your Entertainment” during Kate Gosslin’s dance set.

        And if AI did ANY pimping on their show, it was done for Kris Allen. Kris has a season-long running comercial series for Ford that includes both :30 & :60 second spots. Kris also has his picture in the backdrop (as all season winners do) & received all the prize endorsements, top billings, and the million dollar winner’s package deal.

        Adam Lambert, on the other hand, had to scrap, scrape & struggle for everything he’s gotten so far. NOTHING has been “handed” to him (outside of Idol) simply because he was the #2 contestant. Adam used his creativity, charisma, and dogged commitment to reaching his goals to make ways of opportunity where there was none. For that, and much, much more, Adam Lambert DESERVES ALL the success, fame and riches he has garnered for himself both here in the States and around the world! And for him to reach the level of success he has as an OPENLY GAY, MALE, MAINSTREAM POP ARTIST is simply ASTOUNDING!!! Also, by the time his summer tour starts, it’s quite possible that all 3 of his “For Your Entertainment” releases (album + 2 singles) could go Platinum. His new “Remixes” EP is #10 on iTunes and his brand new single (not quite official yet) “If I Had You” is gaining airplay and is set to do well as a dance/club track in the US and is either the lead or #2 track from the album in certain international markets. That doesn’t happen (and in Adam’s case – would NEVER have happened) if you don’t have a solid base of sheer talent & starpower to work with.

        “HATERZ” please be aware that your negative comments are being added to the total number of comments on an Adam Lambert related blog post. The higher the number of total comments, the higher the post is placed on the “most commented” list. And, therefore, is kept visible to all site visitors. Your negativity is helping to raise the fame/awareness/intrigue of Adam Lambert. Your constant (and disturbing) followership of anything Adam Lambert (a guy you supposedly don’t like or hate) related helps keep the advertisers on (and creators/bloggers of) sites like this happy.

        You may as well just go buy the album, “For Your Entertainment” and his new EP, “Remixes”. You know you want to! ☺

      • Kris

        And you feel compelled to say that, why?

      • giggilamour

        And how ughly and sweaty are you my hateful bigot?I also think that you’re either are simple minded or 5 year old ,either one you suck!

      • Anne

        What’s your problem saying “Adam’s fans are stinky and sweaty”. And what career are you in? Making how much? With ANY fans? Good grief!

      • Jessica

        LOL…are you talking about yourself? Yes I think you are too.

      • cathy

        apparently you have no taste…or eye for beauty or positive influence

      • Carolelee

        SO WE’RE WAITING FOR A PICTURE OF YOU!!!

      • HiO

        I see. You’re gay phob.
        Can’t accept Adam’s success?
        What you feeling is not hate, it’s called envy, did you know?

    • JerryW

      Adam did a great job last night. I just saw the pic of Adam receiving his Platinum record in Canada. I think he is right on track.

      • LMFAO@U

        Then let him be Canadian’s Idol…lol…oh that is right CANADIAN IDOL IS CANCELED.

      • Sally in Chicago

        How many records sold in Canada is platinum? Here it’s 500,000….I don’t know about Canada.

      • Judy

        So LMFAO@U and Sally in Chicago – LISTEN TO THIS!!!!!!!! If you don’t like Adam Lambert don’t bother reading stuff about him. Are you some kind of HATE STALKER Huh???

      • Kate

        Adam’s doing great. His album is also gold in the US. His single is #8 on HAC! I can’t wait for his tour this summer! My friends and I are going to a few shows! School’s almost out!

      • ginaM

        Platinum in Canada is only 80,000 units. Platinum in U.S. is one million units.

      • elbeemy

        Hey LMFAO, it’s a bad JOKE. listen:
        . In only few months, ADAM FYE album is Gold in the US, Platinum in Canada,New Zealand,Singapore, #1 in Japan. Single WWFM went Platinum twice and single FYE Platinum in Canada!

      • You are idiots

        Considering that Canada has the population of the state of California, that many units is actually a great thing. It’s in proportion to the country’s population. Get a clue.

      • wWoWw

        Platinum in Canada is 100,000. In the U.S. Paltinum is 1 million.

      • Ellen

        Platinum is only 80,000 inc Canada. Big deal.

      • watchyourwords

        @ Ellen: Unfortunately for you Ellen … every hateful comment you direct at ADAM (or anyone for that matter) is taken down & recorded by the GREAT I AM. You will answer for each of them later. ADAM is neither MEAN nor HATEFUL and his inner beauty ENHANCES his outer beauty. He is TALENTED & CHARISMATIC … take a step back now & do some soul searching before it is TOO LATE!

      • Kris

        Oops, my above comment was directed at ‘stinky and sweaty’ dude.

      • Melanie

        LMFAO@U…the reason why Canadian Idol was cancelled was we never found a talent like Adam. We had too many Kris like winners and people got bored and quit watching

    • Laura

      So much bitterness and vileness in these comments. It’s disgusting. I think I’ll just go to the bazillion articles on what a good mentor Adam was last night and read about that. Then I will go look at the bazillion pictures and videos of the beauty that is Adam Lambert. Ya’ll have fun here wallowing in hate.

      • Kate

        So many great articles from last night, huh? He did an awesome job as mentor. He said everything I wanted to say!

      • Katie

        Why would you want to read about it? Can’t you make a judgment of your own? I think he sucked. He was either hitting on the contestants, or telling them they were boring. Ironic, isn’t it?

      • Suncatcher

        I’m signing off with Laura too. Geez, people – you are NASTY.

        EW – anyone minding the store?

      • elbeemy

        I LOVE YOU ADAM

      • Ellen

        I am just tired of havin Adam shoved down my throat. And he is a mean man.

      • Jenn

        @Ellen – Adam doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. You’re looking in the mirror if you see mean. Oh, yea, no one is shoving anything down your throat. Just change the channel, hun. Take some responsibility for yourself.

      • Suzanne

        Hitting on contestants…did you watch a different show? The only hitting I saw was Ryan hitting on Adam! Adam is a phenomenal talent and a good man. He did a great job on Idol!

      • Melanie

        Katie…..you have a dirty little mind. Adam was not hitting on anyone.

    • Katie

      Haha, you can hear the snarkiness in his voice. He’s telling Ken “Thanks for your concern” in the same way he told Gene Simmons last year “Thanks for your concern.” As in, get a clue and shove it!

      • watchyourwords

        @ Katie: Read my response to Ellen … “you should read your comments if you want to see “SNARK”!

    • Omoide

      I agree Adam is beautiful inside and out. Amazing talent and wonderful personality.

      • Miss Talk

        Adam is handsome, sexy and very talented. He should be at the same level as Justin Timberlake. The only reason why he is (kind of) struggling is because he is gay while he is super hot. Teenage girls and young women have given up their dreams of winning his heart and therefore they don’t “buy” his music. For an entertainer in Hollywood, to be gay-and-hot is a huge risk. Those guys better pull a Georges Michael or Ricky Martin: play the heterosexal card for some years, get at least one #1 spot on Billboard, get a grammy and once you’re an established act, come out and live a golden and peaceful retreat.

    • nikkido

      Maybe if he did not look like a Boy George rip of, I could have taken his advice more seriously. Not a good look in the 80′s and certainly not a good look now.

      • cathy

        Your comments are so funny. Magazines are falling over each other in order to photograph Adam. He is gorgeous.

    • elbeemy

      ADAM is genius in mentoring Idol. listen to the news of ADAM album: . In only few months, ADAM FYE album is Gold in the US, Platinum in Canada,New Zealand,Singapore, #1 in Japan. Single WWFM went Platinum twice and single FYE Platinum in Canada!

      • Ian

        Wow, there’s a lot of babysitting money being spent in this world.

      • Laura

        Why don’t you list the amount needed for each country to be certified gold and platinum? FAR, FAR LESS than the US so this is really not that impressive.

    • jason

      He said it, because it’s true. Just because Adam thinks he’s doing OK, doesn’t mean he is. His record sales went from “decent” to non-existant. That stunt on the AMA’s cost him big, and it’s showing to everyone that isn’t Adam. It also has a lot to do with him presenting himself as an over the top rocker on Idol, and then releasing an album of techno/pop nonsense, littered with auto-tuned tracks from top, to bottom. Which doesn’t make sense, because he doesn’t have a bad voice. Shouldn’t have needed auto-tune. As far as him being a mentor- what makes you all think he did so great? Was it the stellar advice he was giving, or the fact that every single contestant ignored his opinion, and did their own thing? He really can’t teach them anything, other than how to come in 2nd place, and how to embarass themselves on National Television.

      • Marcus

        Your lack of knowledge about music is staggering. There’s very little autotune on Lambert’s album.

      • Ian

        It may not have autotune, but it is completely flooded with Pro Tools. No amount of production and manipulation can mask the fact, however, that the songs are completely hideous. Look at the kid. Can this douche wear any more makeup? We get it, you’re flamboyant…..Doesn’t mean your music doesn’t suck like a Tijuana hooker. He’s the Webster’s Definition of “Style or Substance”. American Idol raping the music world of respect and dignity.

      • Ian

        *style OVER substance

      • Beavis

        Be careful, you’re not allowed to say anything even remotely negative about these women’s glitter (and much overrated) god. They scour the interent in defense of a grown man who can take care of himself.

      • Ian

        That’s ok. I work directly in the industry that determines whether or not these tools get airplay. He doesn’t. ’nuff said

      • Pigsoink

        @Ian-Your severe jealousy of Adam is showing. Stop posting before this jealousy thing completely destroys you.

      • kat23morg

        first Jason…you need to check your facts before mouthing off about the next big star Adam….His cd is gold in four countries…including US…just went double platnum in CA…will be Platnum here soon…he has doubled the sells of Kris…his single is huge and climbing the charts…his concerts since AMA have been outstanding and nothing short of amazing…he is none world wide for his creativity, originality and sheer talent…
        What planet have you been living on? Adam was on Idol because he believes in the show and was honored by the invitation and because the audience for Idol plummeted due to lack luster performances. It is no coincedence that this weeks audience was the largest total for Idol this season combined…The votes jumped from 4 million to 34 million…Why, because the greatest performer to grace that stage was back…Haters like you need to go read something else…why are you wasting you time here?

      • kat23morg

        One other comment on your remark…actually if you paid attention to the show…which you obviously did not…his advice was helpful and those who did listen and did do a good job singer…stayed….Remember Lee and multiple contestants praising Adam for his help…And no way was his performance anything short of amazing.
        Also all of you who try to insult the fans of Adam…you stereotype us big time….Adam’s fans are not all baby boomer older women…many many teenagers and men are fans…all you have to do is look at the audiences in the concerts he gives…I am a fan…my daughter and most of her friends are fans (she is 15). Get a life haters.

      • Ian

        @ Pigsoink….Wow. What a desperate attempt at a comeback. I’m jealous? No, I’m not. I can think of a lot of people in the music industry I’m jealous of, but the gay-Johnny Cash karaoke pop screecher is not one of them. I’d rather keep my current place in the music industry than have his. And I’d definitely rather have the position I have now than the one awaiting Glambert in a year or two. He’ll be lucky to be remembered as fondly as Corey Haim.

      • idoldied

        @Jason Your desperation is driving you to lie and that’s not cool. Adam Lambert sales non existent? Ridiculous. Week ending 4/14 notorious slow sales week, WWFM alone sold 52k copies and is at 864K and will be platinum in a couple more weeks. The highest sales numbers of any idol that week including Carrie and Kelly who are usually unbeatable, given their many years developing a following. Even autotuned Jason Derulo only sold 20K and that’s including an Idol bump. Maybe you’re confused with THE IDOL Kris Allen who’s album has sold half of Adams, is not even ON Top40 chart anymore, and sang for dogs at Pet A Palooza while Adam was mentoring. You don’t even know what the auto tune is. The machine is used for special effects too. Genius. Perhaps you noticed Adam Lambert does all his own backing vocals in the album since you obviously claim to have heard it. Even though he IS a vocal genius, his vocal chords haven’t figured out how to do ALL SPECIAL EFFECTS and background vocals yet while singing the main song just yet. How funny someone so unencumbered with facts and knowledge chases Adam Lambert press all over the internet just to troll the boy. Regarding “ignoring” advise. Well, for those who did, how is that different than anything else these incompetents have done since day one? It’s the lack of ability that prevented them from doing any type of decent delivery LMAO.

    • Ellen

      Maybe he’s comparing Adam’s sales to the winner before Adam’s year, who went Platinum (in the US, so that’s a million). And in several weeks, not months.

      • idoldied

        OH? What about THIS year’s “WINNER”? ha ha ha you conveniently forgot him. That’s ok. Everyone does. Now regarding Season 7 Cook? You might have missed he played a casino the same weekend Adam did in the same part of California. Adam sold out. Cook did not. And he may have gone platinum more quickly I don’t know. But his Wiki says “shortly” so that means you Cook fans are avoiding the actual date it went platinum. But to date, it has not sold anything much over that. 1.3 mil I believe. Yeah, ok, Cook’s a superstar. He never charted internationally (except Finland) and Adam is. FYE went to number one in Japan 4 days after the release. Get FACTS people.

    • Hannah

      Now, now children! You guys are hilarious. Adam IS talentless. All he does is scream into a microphone. Lame. And he is NOT attractive. All of these posts are probably written by Adam himself. Hello, Adam. You are talentless and fugly. Good day, sir!

      • cathy

        Hannah…go back to Kris’s fansite. He needs the numbers. Last time I checked he only had 45 posters on the site.

  • RoniKaye

    Love you Adam!!

    • Alana

      As do we all. Even the haters are absolutely fascinated with him. It’s delicious.

      • Judy

        they are serial HATE stalkers!!!! Don’t they know the more they talk about Adam the MORE successful HE WILL BE???????

      • Ian

        The haters are not fascinated with him. They just want the music industry to realize that garbage like this kid and American Idol in general are why music sales have plummeted to dangerous depths.

      • Ian

        Haters talking about him doesn’t make him more successful, lol. That’s the dumbest thing I ever heard. People talk about Lindsay Lohan too and she can’t get a job and her movies tank. Don’t be sheeple.

      • @Ian

        Music sales have plummeted because “popular” music being turned out today is absolutely the worst music, in general, that I have ever heard. What are the “dangerous depths” you’re talking about? Please, it’s just music, not national security.

      • Ian

        Maybe not important for you, but a lot of people make their living in the music industry, Musicians, producers, songwriters, radio (including me), venue operators, record store owners, etc. etc. The declining music sales have had a major ripple effect that has hit all of those people. Look at the number of records stores that ave vanished. It starts there and moves upward.

      • staciegirlie

        @Ian

        First, I would like to thank you for being honest about the REAL reason Adam hasn’t received as much airplay as he should have. You DJ’s block him even when Adam’s fans FLOOD your request lines with requests for Adam’s music. Then you take to the media and complain that Adam’s fans are too pushy.

        2ndly, you’re right about the music industry. CD sales are declining. Why do you think that is. Everyone keeps illegally downloading MOST artists stuff. (with the exception of Susan Boyle because her fans are too old to know how to rip a copy off the internet).

  • Marian

    Adam IS doing great and not struggling at all. He is much in demand and his performances sell out in minutes if not hours! Someone didn’t do their homework! Adam was a fantastic mentor last night and incredibly accurate in his comments/advice to this season’s hopefuls! Looking forward to Adam’s performance tonight to show them how it’s supposed to be sung!

    • @Marian

      His biggest venue was 3,500 people. That’s like the size of a high school…not very difficult to sell out.

      • lalalala

        david cook didn’t sell out in the same size venue

      • LMFAO

        Madame is NOT even a musician…he is a karaoke screecher.
        David Cook IS a song writer, music arranger AND a musician, and Adam ain’t sheet.

      • George

        @LMFAO I’m a David Cook fan, but I also like Adam. Both guys are talented. David Cook wouldn’t be happy you came here bashing his friend.

      • LMFAO@U

        Well boo-freakin-hoo 2 you.

        Adam is not even a musician, songwriter or song arranger.

      • kk

        Adam is a songwriter and helped write or wrote several of his songs. There are several great singers that did not play an instrument or write their music. I agree with Adam he is were he should be right now IN THE SPOTLIGHT.

      • kms

        @LMFAO – so using your “logic” – that means that Kiri Te Kanawa is not an artist because she “covers” Puccini and doesn’t write her own operas or play the violin??

      • Judy

        Come on you guys!!! Get real!!! Let’s see the Winner of Season 8 SELL OUT a 3,500 venue THEN you can compare them!!! BTW, THAT winner is only doing OPENING ACTS for other performers LOL!!

      • Judy

        Marian, are you a Kris fan trying to be a David Cook fan???? What an idiot!!

      • MamaKath

        I saw Cook in a venue last year that holds 750-READ SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY (not thousand). There were still tickets at the door that night. It’s smart to start small & work up. Gives you more cred w/real artists. Adam came in w/some street cred now he needs to grow it right. No one starts out headlining arena tours…ok, except Beiber but that’s a whole ‘nother story.

      • Sammie

        David Cook also sold out venues that held 4,500. So your 750 not a sellout doesn’t hold water. He also had a 150+ tour that was a 90% sellout rate. Lots of money made for TPTB.

      • Sammie

        His biggest venue was not 3,500. Better get your facts straight.

      • ehWell

        It sold out in 10 MINUTES.

      • dacky

        I’ve had enough od Ian, Sweaty and all the haters out there! If ONLY you would put your negative energy towards a post of something you actually LIKE I think you would live longer. Its PATHETIC the way you blog on people you HATE!!! WHY BOTHER??? You are losers who probably think Glen Beck is a truthteller and Sarah Palin would make a SWELL president!
        Adam was great last nite. He should have his own show- I’d rather watch him doing his nails between songs than this season of AI!!!!

      Did you accomplsh what you set out to do? Do you feel better? You have to live with yourself.

      Ugggghhh! ICSSP!!

      • don

        first of all, your grammar is horrific, but what can one expect from a non educated,text obsessed drone. I do feel better and live with myself just fine. Because i can actually differentiate talent from the garbage that reality TV shoves down your throat. Pity you…you would’nt know real talent if it bit you you know where. There is nothing original with Miss Lambert. Period. Raise your standards you Robot.

      • ????

        You’re worried about grammar when you’re the way you are?? You’re just mad because someone called you on your ugliness. Haters are like that. “I’ll dish it out BUT I WON’T TAKE IT!!” or “I can say anything nasty aboout anyone I want BUT DON’T YOU DARE SAY ANYTHING NASTY ABOUT ME!!’

        A little one-sided thinking,don’t you think?

        I can at least,live with myself, grammar mistakes and all! Can you??

        P.S. You forgot to capitalize the first word in your first sentence.

      • ????

        Oh, and your spelling of ‘would’nt’ is incorrect.

        Is that the best you can do you? You just have to be followong his career,have wached many interviews to know. You on the other hand feel justified to question me when all you do is log onto a site,terrorize people and call them ‘sparkle cows’. Nice pastime.

    • EducatedLambertFan

      Don, if you are going to take people to task for their grammar, perhaps you had better ask someone to proofread your comments before you post them. You can start by capitalizing the first word of your opening sentence as well as the letter “I.” “Robot,” however, is not a proper noun and therefore should be lowercase. Furthermore, the apostrophe is in the wrong place in “wouldn’t.” But at least you spelled differentiate correctly. Was that on your Word of the Day calendar?

      Don the fact that this is an article about Adam and you had to post garbage about him shows how much of an loser you are.

  • Adam’s fans are stinky and sweaty

    If he was NOT struggling why did Ken Warwick say they put him on the show to mentor to HELP OUT HIS CAREER?

    • pip

      The producer put him on to boost the ratings of this pathetic near-dead show.

      • seamus

        And it didn’t work. The ratings were lower this week than last. What was up with Adam’s hair..yuck.

    • awesome

      I don’t know maybe to hide the fact they needed Adam to boost AI’s ratings???? DUH

    • Lilly

      Well. If Ken Warwick was REALLY concerned about a struggling Idol, he’d have had last season’s winner ….what’s his name?… mentor. That guy’s album has fallen off the Top 200, has sold less than 300k, and is destined to sell less than all the past Idol winners and most of the past runners-up (including Adam). THAT’S struggling. On the oter hand, Adam has a gold album on track for platinum, a hit song on track for platinum, and gold and platinum albums in several countries. He’s doing well.

    • elbeemy

      Ken Warwick did not read the BILLBOARD and follow the NEWS, Dude, ALWAYS follow the FACTS and NEWS, okay. Here we go: In only few months, ADAM FYE album is Gold in the US, Platinum in Canada,New Zealand,Singapore, #1 in Japan. Single WWFM went Platinum twice and single FYE Platinum in Canada!

    • stacey

      Wow, the last I heard the ratings were down for American Idol, most people are watching Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday night. In fact most media outlets are reporting that this is one of the worst seasons for American Idol. So, how is it that the Idol exec thinks that if he had Adam on the show will help his career because he is struggling? It’s almost as if they had him on the show to raise the ratings because let’s face it there are fans out there that like Adam’s singing capabilities and look past the fact that he is gay. I have not watched American Idol since the first season when Kelly Clarkson won. The only reason I tune in this season is because I heard about a contestant, Siobahn Magnus who has the “pipes” of Kelly Clarkson and the “flare” of Adam Lambert. I applaud people who stay true to themselves, who doesn’t let the main stream of society change who they are. Let’s give credit where it belongs.. and if it is to have Adam on the show to raise the viewing population, which we will hear about by the weeks end, then a thank you is in order for how a gifted singer can carry his fans to raise the ratings! Because it’s not the show doing it!!

      • Lilly

        No. DWTS had the highest ratings of the week last week for its MONDAY night show. It’s Tuesday show ratings are way below Idol. So, most people are not watching DWTS on Tuesday. Bloggers and reporters put a spin on the way they interpret data to give their headlines punch. But, Idol still rules Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

Well wake up and smell the rose: ADAM has been SUPERSTAR dude ! where has you been for the last 4 months (lock yourself in the basement or attic ??????????????

    • Alybax

      May I please ask why if someone is NOT an Adam Lambert fan they get called a “homophobe”?! It’s things like THIS that turn people off from Adam even more. I liked Adam just fine before the self-titled “Glamberts” took to the message boards to trash Kris Allen and call EVERY person who states they aren’t a Lambert fan horrible names insisting that their choice in music or Idols means they are homophobic!! It’s disgusting and uncalled for. And it turns people off from Adam… completely. The Glambert Nation needs to chill out and take a few (or several) steps back here. I realize you think Adam is the greatest thing to ever happen to the world, but it’s okay if people don’t agree with you for God sakes…

  • Mary

    I’m glad Adam had the opportunity to address the comment, however, I hope it doesn’t become the new “same old, same old question” every interviewer latches on from here on in. Been there, done that, over. Indeed, I felt Adam was definitely a big plus last night and gave some sound advice (after all it’s only from one individual’s perspective)and many agreed with what he had to offer. It is also complimentary to hear some of the contestants acknowledge the experience they felt with Adam and step up their game somewhat. Idol Season 9 still has a long way to go to show me that they have what it takes to succeed in this industry (luster, excitement-whether it be the high energy or the low-key, but excitement just the same). Maybe they all need to be placed in a shaking box and given a good shake and see who falls out first and ready to produce what most viewers have been waiting for all season. There must be something wrong when most of the media and viewers are saying the same thing that isn’t positive. I have yet to witness the star quality that I feel a winner should possess. Here’s hoping. Thank you Adam Vary for the article.

  • abc

    FWIW, WWFM will be in the top 10 on this week’s Billboard Adult Pop chart.

    • @abc

      Wow, the Adult Pop Chart – the chart that every artist just DREAMS to be on.

      That’s even a more obscure chart than the Billboard Pop Chart itself, which is a step down in accomplishment from reaching the top #10 of the MAIN BB100.

      But at this point, he can use any accomplishment he can get.

      • abc

        clearly you know absolutely nothing about radio or the billboard charts.

      • @abc

        Either do you.
        Otherwise you most definitely wouldn’t be bragging about Adam hitting the top 10 of the BB “ADULT POP CHART”

        Do you know anything about how that chart is composed? How limited the competition is for that chart? Have you compared that chart to the Mediabase radio airplay charts?

        Again, if you don’t know what you’re talking about (like Adam, who thinks he’s not struggling), please keep quiet – you avoid embarrassment that way.

      • Judy

        hey@abc….the BB adult pop chart is virtually identical to the mediabase radio hac chart…so yeah, I do know what I am talking about…and yeah, i do know how the bb hot 100 and all of the underlying charts are composed. and whataya want from me is in the top ten on both the bb adult pop and the mediabase hac charts…and maybe you should take a look at what artists are on that chart. the top artists of the day. mostly the same artists as are on the pop chart, minus the more rythmic leaning artists. get a grip

  • TeeHeeHee

    Adorable.
    Of course Adam is going to feel like his career is “struggling” – why would he say anything to the contrary?

    Meanwhile, people with actual music industry knowledge are saying otherwise.

    And I don’t know who told this poor little boy that WWFM is “just breaking into the top 10″. It’s at #23 on the Billboard Top 100. Digital sales are flat, and it’s DROPPING in radio airplay on radio (by substantial amounts on Pop/Hot AC stations).

    Barring a miracle, there’s no way it’s going to make it into the top 10 – either the Pop charts, and DEFINITELY not the main charts. It’s just impossible.

    Once again, Adam has no clue what he’s talking about. But it’s SO SWEET how he thinks he’s doing well!

    • FU

        I’m sure Adam is PROUD to have fans like you.

      • LT

        Here is a fact for you TeeHee- There are all kinds of charts besides Billboard. One of Adam’s hurdles is getting played on radio- he has made it to #13 on the pop charts before peaking, but he is the fastest mover on the HAC charts- turn your nose up all you want at that chart ( He will be #8 on that chart tomorrow)but WWFM IS an (hot) adult contemporary song because the pop chart tends to skew towards rythmic. His song does extremely well on Itunes despite his lack of radio play. It’s #22 right now and has pretty much been there steadily for weeks. And it WILL go up tonight when he sings, and the song WILL be platinum in 2 or 3 weeks. so STFU and run back to your Kris Allen/David Cook board.

      • Q3

        Well for such a supposed superstar Adam has been a flop. AI was acting like he was going to rocket in the charts straight out of the gate…but he stumbled and fall. So here comes 19E to rescue his fatasss.

      • TeeHeeHee

        -If Adam is such a “star”, radio should be embracing him. He shouldn’t have to face “hurdles”. Does Beyonce face “hurdles” to get played on the radio? Rihanna? No.

        -That’s fine if he’s top 10 on the Adult pop charts…but Adam said in the interview above that his single is about to break the top 10. He didn’t say what chart. So most would assume that he’s talking about the MAIN BB chart – the indisputable music industry STANDARD

        If it’s such an honor and accomplishment to reach the Top 10 of the Adult Charts, why didn’t he say so in the interview? I’d be bragging about it if it were a big deal for sure!

        -And as I told someone else above, hitting 1m downloads is NOT a big deal. In fact, I’m surprised a “star” like Adam has taken MONTHS without hitting that mark.

        For the record, 88 songs sold 1m downloads last year alone.

        But you too LT, please, please, PLEASE keep sharing your wonderful wisdom with us — it makes Adam’s accomplishments look even crappier once morons like you open your mouth.

      • FU

        @TeeHeeHee

        The difference between you and me is I have the ability to rein myself in.

        You? One can only hope someone like you will change. Maybe someday someone will take a dig at a loved one….mother,sister,brother,

        Your post speaks for itself.

        If Adam was really a STAR – you guys wouldn’t be struggling to explain his success. It would be “BAM!” – Adam has accomplished, this, this, and this. But instead…just a bunch of name calling.

      • FU

        @TeeHeeHee,

        Adam’s present and future SUCCESS will require no explanation. It’s obvious to anyone with working ears that he is one of the most talented artists to come from the AI stage.

        There’s no explanation for you however (your mother’s probably still scratching her head!).

        Yes TeeHeeShe, Beyonce does face hurdles with radio play. Vidoephone anyone? Great video, but tanked on the charts like some of her other songs. Same with Lady GaGa and most other artists. The fact that he’s a brand new artist where as Beyonce has been around for a number of years is obviously lost on you.

    • Jay

      Digital sales are flat?. He’s consistently been selling over 50,000 copies of WWFM every week, he will reach platinum in the next couple of weeks, that’s probably why he feels he isn’t struggling. That and the international launch of his album going really well, but what does he know?, you’re obviously the expert.

      • TeeHeeHee

        By “flat”, I meant that his digital sales haven’t grown much from the 50-55k range
        (please pick up a dictionary once in a while)

        And when Flo Rida can rack up two singles getting 4m digital sales, as well as TONS of other mediocre artists hitting the 1m digital mark with EASE….Adam’s accomplishments aren’t that impressive.

        Let’s not forget Adam has had a massive promotional push by his record label. Yet he STILL hasn’t broken 1m in paid downloads. Craptastic artists with one-hit wonders break the 1m barrier with ease.

        But please Jay, keep talking – it makes you and all the Adam fans look even stupider (if that was possible)

      • Jay

        Why do you need to be rude?. I was just posing a reasonable question not claiming to be an expert, I live in the UK and don’t follow US charts in general, but I would have thought a platinum single is an accomplishment and his album sales, whilst not stellar have been decent.

      • TeeHeeHee

        Really Jay? Next time, keep your snark out of your posts then. If you can’t take it, then don’t dish it either.

      • Jay

        Wow, why so angry?, why the assumption that I was being snarky?. Not worth getting worked up over,I’m genuinely interested in how Adam is doing and looking forward to his UK launch next week. I hope he does well here.

        @LMFAO@U, identity crisis here honey or WHAT??? I can’t even fathom how ADULTS can come here and diss someone YOU don’t even know!!! Go and buy some Kris CD’s if YOU are so bitter and try to make HIM a superstar!!! Ha!!

    • allyriane

      @teeheeheen you have a problem and lying doesn’t help your position. Adam did not say his career is struggling. And you are wrong about airplay. Typical hater. WWFM has not dropped on Top 40 mediabase radio play at all yet. It is number 13 on Top 40 and NUMBER 10 ON HAC. And 13 on AC. He picked up 9 radio adds yesterday alone. He’s charting INTERNATIONALLY with FYE going to number 1 on the Japan radio play last week 4 DAYS after it was released. It’s not even released in the UK yet. He’s gold here, almost platinum, and platinum in Canada and another couple of countries. You cannot reach top 10 on the Top 40 Pop charts without Cumlulus adds and they added him 3 months after the debut unlike Kris Allen and every other top 24 artist who they added IMMEDIATELY. Cumulus is the radio network that censored Dixie Chicks for their Bush comments. THAT”S what the exec was referring to – media BIAS against a gay man. Not Lambert’s popularity. He’s competing with crap like “dance with no pants on” Kesha trash and “can you get it up are you hard enough” Rhianna trash. Adam Lambert sold out his Canada show in 10 minutes. He’s a rising star and you haters will have no impact on his career whatsoever. Deal with it.

      • Mary

        Thanks for your research… you are one of the few on here that are making any sense!

    • swarm

      @teeheehee WHAT are you even talking about? You’re just flailing around making up crap. Adam Lambert’s album debuted at NUMBER 3 on Billboard sales charts. Duh it’s not going to stay there forever since a COUPLE others have been released since November. On Billboard Top 100 Hits today Gaga Bad Romance is 17 and Adam is 23. OH YEAH, his career is failing. LMAO at you. No doubt you’re a Clay Aiken or Cook idol tard. You guys always post the same nonsense.

      • TeeHeeHee

        Except – Bad Romance ALREADY PEAKED AT #2. On the MAIN BB Top 100 chart. Adam didn’t even come anywhere close, nor will he since WWFM has at/near its peak.

        What an idiotic comparison

        Wow, are ALL of Adam’s fans THIS dumb…or does EW just attract the worst of the worst?

      • Ollie

        So if you don’t like Adam, you’re automatically a Kris Allen fan. Or a David Cook fan because now he’s a failure when he’s done better than Adam. Makes absolutely no sense! Why attack someone else–back it up with facts.

      • MarySueBob

        Obviously based on your comments TeeHeeHee it attracts the worst of the worst. Why someone isn’t a fan of an artist would spend so much time trying to prove a point is beyond me. In fact, it makes you look pathetic. I also don’t get why Adam’s fans feel the need to interact with you, but whatever. If it makes you feel better about yourself then more power to you. I guess even the most pathetic of losers needs some sort of outlet.

    • awesome

      @TeeHeeHee I’m thinking if Adam wasn’t such a star you wouldn’t be here trashing him….go find a rock to crawl under

    • priscela

      adam doing well gone paltinum double -gone gold and very popular thats the facts mom.go to http://www.adamlamberttv.blogspot.com all these is true and all the info right there. dont jumpt to conclusion.hes very famous in asian countries and european countries plus gone gold her ein the usa.

    • tessie

      I don’t know why so many people cite the “CHARTS” as a measure of success. How many people go to concerts is more important IMO .. and so far … no matter what size venue .. ADAM has been SOLD OUT … even had to add a concert in BC which SOLD OUT in TEN minutes. ADAM is only ‘struggling’ in the eyes of the media moguls who think if you don’t sell X amount of albums in X amount of time is an indication of a struggle. The only ‘struggle’ I see for ADAM is the HATERS .. BASHERS .. HOMOPHOBES .. of this GREAT country who refuse to accept anyone they DEEM different. Plus the IDIOTIC American Djs who make it a ‘struggle’ for ADAM’s fans to get his music on the air. THEREIN, lies the ONLY ‘STRUGGLE’!!! .. for ADAM!!

  • Viki

    I really don’t see how Adam is struggling. *shrugs*

    • bobbybue

      After only 4 mos since its release and it just came out last week in UK, this doesn’t really look like struggling to me:

      • Judy

        YUP!!! Talent is GOLDEN!!!

      • Sam

        Okay, how many albums does it take to become Gold in these countries? Why don’t you include those please.

      • Sammie

        Canada 40,000 gold, 80,000 platinum
        US 500,000 gold, 1 million platinum
        Singapore 6,000 gold, 12,000 platinum
        New Zeland 7,500 gold, 15,000 platinum

        A far cry from “global superstar”

      • Duh

        @Sam,

        THanks for adding those numbers. Now we see just how bad Kris Allen, the winner really sucks. He couldn’t even go gold in a country that requires 6000 sales.

    • Amazed

      For a new performer, he’s not. However, AI made him out to be an instant overnight global sensation and (at this point) he’s not. Not saying that he can’t or won’t be … he was just given totally unrealistic expectations which so far, haven’t been met.

      • Elena

        Youre totally right Amazed. I’m an Adam fan, but he hasnt been the overnight success everyone thought he would be. Dont be blind guys! He’s doing well, but those VFTW people do have a point. And until he’s a huge star, he needs to be more careful with what he says.

  • Jason

    It’s all about the expectation. For other contestants, you make it when you had a few sold-out small venue concernts. But for Adam, he has to sell out an arena. True, he’s not there yet. Eventually he will. I think he did a good job recovering from the AMA backslash.

    • allyriane

      Sell out an ARENA? 6 months after coming off IDOL? LMAO ok. Even GAGA doesn’t have that track record.

      • DD

        The only thing Adam is going to sell out is the local nursing home.

      • Judy

        @DD, excuse me but HOW OLD are you??? 12????? Go and watch some cartoons sonny!! Adam has LOADS of young fans too!!! Go watch his Youtubes from Australia and you’ll see the love from there!

      • Eva

        Yes but detractors love to change the rules. Number 9 on HAC ==but we don’t need to mention that, right?

      • @allyriane

        That’s exactly what Jason meant, I think. That, for other Idol contestants, the expectations have been much lower but that Adam is EXPECTED to sell out an arena and he hasn’t met the unrealistic expectations his own management company/record label set for him. Based on those crazy expectations, after, as you put it, “6 months coming off Idol”, yeah, I guess one can say he’s struggling. Basing it on realistic expectations for a new artist, no one could really say he’s struggling at all.

    • rearose

      adam tour in a few vwenuse i think three of them all sold out; hes very exciting singer-good human being he is the type of singer-human being i want to have as my ido and my singer. hes very very unque guy and can dance- sing uniquely.

      • Sammie

        3 sold out venues don’t rate a success. David Cook sold a 90% sellout rate during a 150+ date tour. One sold out in less than 6 minutes. He played venues from 750 to 18,000. He and David Archuletta played to 50,000 overseas with estimates of another 100,000 outside the venue. Three sellouts hahahahaha. Boy needs to get on tour to recoup the money TPTB have spent on him.

      • Staciegirlie

        Adam is going on tour this summer. Glam Nation Tour!

  • Madame Glambert

    AI thought Madame Glambert was gonna be a SUPAH STAR and is doing everything in their power to make him one by cramming that screechy diva down everyone’s throats.
    GO TO BROADWAY BE-OTCH.

    • Really?

      It’s called diversity, honey. Don’t like it, don’t listen to it. Contrary to your claims, no one is actually shoving anything down your throat. I mean, you are here, on an article about Adam Lambert, of your own free will, right?

      And the homophobic name calling? Ugh. How highschoolish of you.

  • Sparkle Cow Madness

    Why is 19E giving all these breaks to Adam? He didn’t win Idol. Why not let Carrie, Kelly or David Cook mentor instead of him? That is showing favoritism to someone who didn’t even win the show. That is unfair.

    • LT

      Boohoo. Seriously the sour grapes on this board are pathetic. Adam is being helped by 19 and the media in general because they know he is in an uphill battle being the FIRST openly gay pop singer at the start of his career. Look at the messages already on this board- Mandonna, Madamme, screechy diva,etc- people taking absolute glee in the notion that he is not doing well. He is bigger overseas already in countries where people aren’t inbred backwoods bible thumping morons.

      • LMFAO@U

        that is a lie.

        Boy George was the 1st opnely gay singer and HE DID BETTER THAN ADAM…and that was in early 1980s.
        So THAT excuse IS AS LAME AS ADAM LAMBERT.

      • don

        not sour grapes, just reality. Oh sorry you have issues with that. there is no glee here, only sadness as to what the state of entertainment, and the morality of this nation has become. Be original or go away. Once the greatest nation in the world. Now one of undereducated video drones like yourself. Oh but what can i expect from a society who thinks that Michael Jackson is a Legend.

      • LT

        Boy George never publicly declared his sexuality until later in his career moron.

      • LMFAO@U

        Hey you idiot…EVERYONE knew Boy George was gay…except idiots like yourself.

      • ????

        Hey @don,

        You may have to quit being the grammar police on this site.

        You keep starting a post without capitalizing the first word in the first sentence. How does someone with so much grammar-tize keep doing that?!!

        Now I definitely can’t take what you say about Adam seriously!!

      • seamus

        My distaste for Lambert has nothing to do with his sexuality but with his personality and his huge ego. I have lots of gay singers on my ipod. Contrary to what his fans think, he is not the first openly gay singer. It’s about talent and who people are drawn to. Quit blaming homophobia as the reason he’s not doing we well as expected. His voice and style do not appeal to a lot of people.

    • AdamAdam

      It is not favoritism . It is reccognision of his outstanding talent and intelligence. Nobody wants a “slow achiever” winner as mentor, just because that person won. In real business it does not matter who won. It only matters who’s best. ADAM IS THE BEST. As simple as this.

      • Sammie

        If its because of his outstanding talent and intelligence, why is Ken saying it’s to “help his struggling career”.

    • Red

      @LMFAO@U

      I’m sorry but Boy George at the height of his career never said he was gay. Once he finally came out as gay his career tanked. His solo album never reached gold in US.

      • LMFAO@U

        Boy George’s career tanked because he was OUTDATED…just like Lambert.

      • Red

        @LMFAO@U

        Why don’t you just admit that you were wrong, idiot. Boy George came out as gay in 1990s and he as a solo artist never sold better than Adam in the US.

    • awesome

      This is just too freakin funny why is 19 giving all the breaks to Adam and not Kelly, Carrie or David??????? Why wasn’t lame a** Kris Allen asked to mentor??? He cheated (won) american idol didn’t he??? Talk about a career that’s in the crapper.

      • staciegirlie

        I don’t recall Kelly or Carrie ever helping their co-contestants like Adam helped his. Adam “mentored” every one of the top 10 last year, egging them on to become their best AT THE EXPENSE of them rising up to beat him.

      • Duh

        Kelly has severed ties with 19 and made them her enemies. Or do you read, doofus.

        Carrie is also trying to distance herself.

  • maggie

    you rock ,adam, so talented, i love u!!!!!!!!u r more than a mentor,u r a star!

  • Jay

    As usual Adam uses positive energy to diffuse unprofessional comments. What a class act he is, perhaps he can help Warwick look for a job when X Factor launches in the US and buries what’s left of Idol.

    • Jaysux

      …like they can bury Adam’s career.

      • Judy

        Have you every tried SUCKING a lemon?? Cause you are SOUR, it’s creepy! STFU!!

    • @Jay

      Positive comments? He just lied. He’s not a success. His single is not hitting the top 10 on any reputable chart.

      • Joan

        Jay, was Top9 on HotAC yesterday. Also the album is Platinum in Canada, Gold in the US, NZ,Singapore. Single WWFM x2Platinum and single FYE Platinum in Canada. WWFM is on all Worldwide charts and played on most of the countries in the world including some muslim countries and the worldwide promotion started only 2 weeks ago.

      • rita

        even egypt fans want adam to coem and sing /peru and bietname and korea-taiwan and indonesai-phils and euroepan coutnries boy all over the world-hes my michael jackso repalcement of michael and elvis presly now.

    • Elena

      I’m from the UK, home of the X Factor and honestly it sucks. Idol is way better. Not everything Simon Cowell touches turns to gold.
