    Just noticed my fave Idol contestant ever doesn't have his own topic! So here's one

    I can't be the only Adam fan on UKMIX!

    At the moment, I'm listening to all his stuff - his album, his Idol performances, his Glam Nation CD, everything woo

    He's SO talented <3

    He toured here last year and I wish I'd gone! When he comes again, I am SO there!

    I love Adam Lambert too. My favourite songs from him are For Your Entertainment and If I Had You. They're both incredible up-tempo numbers. Can't wait for the new album to drop!
    I was ambitious, though I didn’t know exactly what I was shooting for. Now I think it’s one of the most useless questions an adult can ask a child – What do you want to be when you grow up? As if growing up is finite. As if at some point you become something and that’s the end.

    I love everything he's done, but especially his ballads! My fave songs by him are Sleepwalker and Broken Open, but I also adore Soaked, A Loaded Smile and Music Again.

    Well, not all of them, but most.

    It's actually funny I say Adam is my fave Idol alumni ever, cos I didn't even watch the season of Idol he was on

    It was the only season I missed apart from the first season (they never showed it over here, they skipped directly to season 2 :-?).

    But Adam is the only Idol alumni I have any CDs by!

    NEW YORK POST

    A funny thing happened in the course of producing this summer’s breezily entertaining breakout hit, “The Voice.” A potential disaster, actually. After the conclusion of the auditions, during which a quartet of coaches chose singers for their teams, host Carson Daly went out onstage and said, “We have a problem.”
    The coaches had not selected enough contestants. Only Cee Lo Green had the requisite eight; Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton were all short. What to do?
    “I was on the floor. I was actually sitting in the audience,” says executive producer Mark Burnett. “I talked to the cameramen, talked to the coaches. They didn’t know how many [contestants] were left. They had never seen these performers, or seen audition tapes or heard them before.”

    MATTHEW ROLSTON/NBC
    Christina Aguilera

    Then Aguilera, who serves as the Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and J.Lo of “The Voice,” came up with a brilliant idea. And the only one that would work.
    “She said, ‘Why don’t we see some of them again?’ ” Burnett says.

    But where were they? “Many had already left the studio,” Burnett admits. “We sent minivans to the hotel to bring them back.” The mastermind behind “Survivor” now wishes he had had the foresight to work that rescue mission into the show somehow. “It would have been a brilliant moment of television, to show that,” he says.
    When the singers that the coaches wanted back took to the stage, they sang songs that were completely unrehearsed, songs that the band already knew.
    “They were singing for their lives,” Burnett says.
    Improvised moments such as these set “The Voice” apart from rivals such as “American Idol,” whose structures have been in place for years. “The Voice,” which is headed into its final two weeks, is also a more democratic talent show than “Idol,” as its contestants have a wider age range. Most satisfying, though, are the song choices, which lean heavily toward contemporary music. The contestants are not asked to sing material their parents and grandparents played on the victrola.
    “It’s a breath of fresh air. We’re not trying to make a country singer sing Motown. Or an R&B singer do country,” Burnett says. “They’re allowed to be themselves. It’s coach-and-artist driven.”
    His production team is headed by MTV veteran Audrey Morrissey who worked on “Unplugged,” the “VMAs” and “The Movie Awards,” among other specials.“They’re very experienced in contemporary music,” Burnett says. As a result, “Slightly older people are discovering newer songs for the first time,” he says.
    The success of “The Voice” also hinges on the chemistry of the judges, superstars in their respective musical worlds.


    “In classroom terms, what you’ve got are three naughty boys and the hot teacher who tries to keep them in line,” Burnett says with sly assurance.
    “Christina’s not just the hot teacher. She’s the naughty, hot teacher,” says Shelton. “The one who makes it into the news for doing naughty things.”
    Shelton was a stranger to the TV world before he signed on and it took one night at the West Hollywood Soho House — and Burnett’s credit card — for the coaches to feel comfortable with each other.
    “By the end of the night, we were all high-fiving,” Shelton says. “We talked about relationships and marriages and drank a lot of expensive Champagne.”

    MATTHEW ROLSTON/NBC
    Christina Aguilera

    How expensive? “Thousands of dollars,” Burnett says. “I bet they went through five bottles of Dom Perignon. But it was money well-spent. The chemistry from that moment on was organic and they became friends. I wouldn’t be surprised if you saw [musical] collaborations among them.”
    Burnett was so confident that “The Voice” would be a hit that he even predicted its initial rating — an excellent 5.1 in the demo — and was right (the show has averaged 12.9 million total viewers for the season). “I knew the show was really good. And NBC-Universal had done enough promotion. It would have been hard to live in America and not know it was coming on. Making a good show is only part of it,” he says.
    Like any proud producer, he has his favorites among the singers.
    Rocker Beverly McClellan “knocked the Melissa Etheridge song ‘I’m the Only One’ out of the park,” he says. “She always delivers. Patrick Thomas always delivers. Dia Frampton on the piano was surprisingly different. She showed herself as a true artist.”
    That “The Voice” has tapped into so much undiscovered talent does not surprise Shelton. “This business is based on opportunities and on being lucky,” he says. “People just don’t know how to go about pursuing that dream. I guarantee you this show is a nice way. I wish there’d been something like this when I started out.”
    As “The Voice” heads toward its June 29 finale, where the winner will receive $100,000 and a contract with Universal Republic records, the competition heats up and the field narrows to just four contestants, one for each coach. Burnett says, “It’s totally impossible to predict who will win. People are stepping up every week. It’s all that growth.”
    Even though Burnett thinks that “The Voice” has little in common with his signature show, “Survivor,” he’d like to mention one point of commonality.
    “ ‘Survivor’ Season 2 began with the Super Bowl lead-in which led us to beat ‘Friends’ on Thursday night. Season 2 of ‘The Voice’ will also have a Super Bowl lead-in. That’s 70 to 100 million people. I hope ‘The Voice’ lasts as long as ‘Survivor.’ ”
    THE VOICE
    Tuesday and Wednesday, 8 p.m., NBC

    so this is from the new album which is coming out probably in November


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oJRu...layer_embedded

    I'm interested to hear the studio version but my first thought is it's pretty but samey, it needs a middle 8 or key change or sth to give it some depth. As it's just an album cut I'm hoping the rest has some more radio friendly tracks with stronger hooks.[/url]

    Damn, I can't watch YouTube videos :x

    I'll wait for somebody to rip it to mp3 so I can download it

    But the emerging of new material is a good sign!! That means a new album is on the way whoop whoop

    He's so gay, he doesn't even like boys
    (I'm gay myself so I'm allowed to say that)
    ? Girls' Generation ?
    ? HyoYeon ? Britney Spears ?

    Girls' Generation is the best-selling girl group of all time.

    I just downloaded the live recording of Outlaws Of Love, and it's gorgeous

    It sounds like Sleepwalker or a slower Soaked, my two favourites by him

    CANNOT wait to hear this in mp3 form and in HQ

    But I don't reckon this is what the album version will sound like, Adam is prone to changing up his songs when he does them live (check out Soaked from the Glam Nation tour, it's acoustic and sounds nothing like the album version), so the album version may have a key change and instrumentals, Adam just felt like doing this acoustically
