Adam Lambert: I Don't Watch the 'American Idol' Auditions

Adam Lambert chats with Ellen DeGeneres while making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which airs on Thursday (February 10).

The 29-year-old singer told Ellen that he has not started watching the new season of American Idol.

“I usually tune in when they get to Top 12,” Adam said. “I heard that it’s good. I’m going to miss you. I don’t know how I feel about that.”

Adam added that he thinks Jennifer Lopez is a good addition to the show. “She’s been working in this industry forever. She really knows, I think,” he said.

    Every time he pops up i feel like is his last, i don’t see anything about him that makes him stand out. He is more interested in grabbing attention than actually singing BUT then again the “industry” isn’t about talent

    babyblur Says:


    where r you when he is singing?, cause their is a lot of that going on…jingle balls? concerts? tv performances..
    and i do not follow him closely as some

    the media prefers 2 showcase what they want..they ignore what they want and latch on what gets clicks

    i wish they covered more his normal low profile deeds ,,ie charity, and his singing, u have 2 dig 4 that stuff
    but let him do something outside the box, they r all over that..

    strange post ..

    Adam Lambert is the most genuine and talented spirit in today’s music! You want to know him? It’s so easy. Go and buy his amazing album, search him on google… p.s. he will release an live DVD of his hugely successful world tour on 22 March. Go Adam, I love you!

    @JustinBoner:Lol. It’s always ironic when [people like you] only remember the few —seconds— of someone’s career you are uncomfortable with over anything else. It says a LOT about YOU.

    Jermaine Says:

    He is dope but I’m always waiting for him to do something

    He needs a breakout global single, Im aware WWFM did well but you never see the MV being played as much as other less talented or pure sh*t artists like Jason Durulo

    @Jermaine: It’s mainly about radio plays altho music channels play a huge part. Some stations still have internal issues about playing artists like Adam and the Scissor Sisters, mainly American ones :3

    She stinks! Says:

    JHO doesn’t know anything. She’s an untalented mess. The only thing she knows how to do is pick the right man to service so she can get a record contract, movie deal, whatever.

    Yeah, no. Tweeted by Ellen’s stage manager after Adam’s performance:
    ProfessorOM Christopher Hines:
    “Just watched Adam Lambert DECIMATE 85% of the singers that ever stepd on this stage..acapella. Ridiculous. Who won Idol his year? …I’ll w8″

    Don’t like him, that’s your prerogative, but to suggest he isn’t talented is totally ignorant. Boy can sing his face off.

    Oh, and @Lora? You want to know who Adam is? He’s the subject of the article you deliberately clicked on, read, and bothered to respond to. He is also, undoubtedly, the person overshadowing your own personal favorite Idol.

    Despite his name coming up every so often over here in the UK, for the most part on daytime and late night shows, the last time his music was played on the radio or on the television was when he was doing promotion here.

    Most people know who he is (hell, our national treasure Steven Fry is fond of him) and I often see him in magazines and newspapers but he is not a household name yet. I’d like to think our country is a lot more accepting……we do play SS and similar artists on the radio very regularly, however, I think it has more to do with not knowing enough about him. I also think his label spend too much time on their more disposable artists ie. Ke$ha. P!nk whose music I and many others can not stand these days gets more than enough radio play. I can’t my my head around it all to be honest.

    Steven Tyler is the only flawless judge on Idol. I never knew he was so charming and funny.

    PS. Adam needs to run far far away from RCA.

    I’ll wait for the video :D
    Love seeing him interviewed & singing acapella <3

    JLO’s kinda annoying and self-aware but she is gorgeous…

    The rumor he was dismissing was Perez’s scummy team claiming he was dating his dancer Taylor, which btw I read as I haven’t been on his rank site in years. Thank you for not making up BS like some do, Jared. It makes me want to continue coming to your site.

    I find everything about him fascinating and yet he seems so normal.
