    This is the only song I skip on the album …

    And he working other album

  • zizi

    Apparently the song is remixed by producer “Billboard’ who did Britney’s HIAM!!! Really excited to hear this!!!!

  • josh

    But I’m still excited for the performance

  • quincy


    then tune into Idol because he’s doing the version he performed on tour which is completely different (and sooo much better!!)

  • C.Firth

    Although I’m not a fan of this song, I get why they chose this particular track from the album for The Trevor Project.

  • LykkeLi

    Sooo ready to see him on screen again, Adam’s my boy!!! :)

  • london2ibiza

    I think his next album is going to be heavier with more rock and less electronic production….that’s what I think anyway.


    I WOULD STAN FOR HIM IF HE MADE MORE MUSIC LIKE ‘IF LOVE TAKES OVER (Kelly Rowland / Guetta) or ‘HAPPINESS’ (Alexis Jordan / Stargate) or songs like ROBYN’s stuff.

    Synthpop or dance ballads with PURE production like Sia’s music.

    His personality and voice is addictive but he should definitely try out the above genres of music and production IF HE WANTS A BIGGER MAINSTREAM AUDIENCE…………x

    Idol is actually good this year….lovin’ the boys. Last year was a dull catastrophe.

  • Ben

    @V: who do you like so far?

  • Millie

    So excited to see him perform this on AI. This song was one of a few on his album whose production I did not like (the other being Loaded Smile), but I LOVED the acoustic version he performed on the Glamnation Tour. It was ethereal and strong at the same time. I will be tuning into Idol for the first (and probably last) time this year just to see him perform that song. I hope the remix version sells well since it’s for a great cause.

    Looking forward to the release the Glamnation Tour dvd/cd this month as well.

  • Gumm


    Yes but the acoustic live us amazing and totally different.

  • KOKE

    Adam’s just passed 901,000 followers!

    Let’s get him to a million followers before Summer! :)

  • rudeboy

    A loaded smile,

    and one last dance……….

    “You get what you give away” Aftermath- so excited to see Adam on Idol- watch the ratings go through the roof!! Idol is much more exciting than last years sleeper, and now it is beyond exciting with the GlamRockGod on!!!

  • Lo

    How’s care about adam

  • cherryb0mb

    @DEADMAU5: I completely agree with what you said but I blame his label. When he’s more established he should run away from them.

    Can you imagine if he released Fever and had Gaga cameo in the vid???? It would have f*n blown minds but instead his label suggested he release IIHY & FYE? Both these songs were ok but the album was a lot stronger! It happens with a lot of artists but it’s balanced out with an amazing vid and none of his singles have had amaaaazing videos yet. They all had potential. I think this guy is so special and has the full package he’s a superstar in his own right but no one has made full use of his potential to help him shine alongside all the other amazing divas of this industry.

  • luvmariah

    Wow good luck, Adam.
    Kill it, I’m sure you will :P

    @Ben: Casey Abrams, Jacob Lusk, Paul McDonald — and someone else who sadly didn’t get in :’( but I won’t name just in case some people haven’t watched the results yet.

  • http://Ta Sligo lambert ^___^ cute

    Yes i have

  • latinalovely

    I love him a lot but what a shame they wasted a chance to release one of the GOOD album tracks for this corny song..

  • latinalovely

    But since it’s for charity…’s all good…I guess.

  • emma

    @Sligo lambert ^___^ cute: Can you post it? I want to follow you :D

  • LMFAO, wtf

    @emma: why ? Kaz/Sligo is insufferable.

  • http://Ta Sligo lambert ^___^ cute

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo it’s secret

  • i n f a m o u s l y c o o l

    …To this day he’s still the most exciting person to ever be on that show. By far he’s my favorite winner.

  • http://Ta Sligo lambert ^___^ cute

    Good luck adam^^

  • Rocker_Girl

    Like some here have already said: Aftermath acoustic is not at all like the version on the album. I Love the acoustic version but was meh on the album version.

    Can’t wait to see him perform this on AI, as I think it will be perfect for that audience and it has a really good, strong message! Now, any ones guess as to what a club, dance, upbeat version Aftermath release for the Trevor Project will sound like – always keeps us guessing:-)

    Can’t wait for the GNT CD/DVD Live to release because Adam singing live doesn’t get any better and I need/want an HQ version of his live performances. So glad they did this project!

    Adam is hanging out at denver studio and working on 2nd album^^

  • dannie

    I LOVVVVEE aftermath!!!!!!
    Adam Lambert is amazing.
    Idol is stupid now.

    @josh: This Aftermath is a remix and all benefits go to the Trevor Project. Might want to give it a listen before you decide. He will take it accoustic only on the American Idol show which is what he does on his Adam Live EP as well. Very beautiful sung that way.

  • Blaine

    Looking forward to Adam performing on Idol. Thank god he didn’t do Fever with a video with Gaga as I’m so over her. He needed to stand on his own and establish himself as he did. Not understanding why some fans need to keep posting on sites what they don’t like about his songs. Nobody likes every song on an album but why not show him some support as he does Aftermath on Idol. They haters will rip him apart, but the fans don’t need to encourage it. Aftermath acoustic is beautiul and the message is wonderful. Love his music. Some tracks I liked better than others but loved them all. Rock on Adam!

  • Jory

    I can’t wait to hear the dance version of this song.. and stay tune for his performance on Idol that will the 1st time I watch this season. :D

  • Suzie

    Thanks JJ…
    I love your site.
    So excited to hear and see Adam on AI. I don’t watch anymore, but
    will for him.

  • Maria

    The album version is soft rock, not my thing. The acoustic version is beautiful. It’ll be interesting to see a dance version. Since it’s all for charity, since Adam is a talented guy, hope it does very well. Also is this going to radio?

  • DD

    I.CAN.NOT.WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Huge Adam fan!!!! He’s going to blow everyone away next week on Idol!!!!!

  • annie

    Can’t wait to see and hear him perform on idol again. I really like the album Aftermath but love the acoustic . When he sings it acoustically, his vocals shine and takes my breath away.

    I would love to see him again sometime on idol and rock out a number. Amazing voice and performer.

  • annie


    Great post Blaine!!!

  • http://Ta Sligo lambert ^___^ cute

    Cant wait to see adam on idol next week


    POST IT JARED!!!!!! :D

  • angela

    This is the only song on the album I don’t care for either….I don’t hate it…it just sounds Chris Daughtry to me…sometthing is missing – but it will still be great – Adam could sing nursery rhymes and I would listen.

    ps: It is STILL better than 95% of what is on the radio now. Lady Gaga and Adam are my faves and two very very very talented wonders.

  • angela

    And I went to his concert – the acoustic sound is sooooo much better for that song…I like it when he sings it live

  • angela

    and I get why they are releasing it for the Trevor Project…it makes sense…I wish Sleepwalker would get released

  • fan

    Sorry. don’t mean to rude, but ugh! Isn’t there enough “dance pop” in the world? Does a voice like Lambert’s really need tricks and production and the type of overkill by the producer so that the song doesn’t even belong to the singer anymore?

    Some of us really hate that sh**. It all sounds alike.

  • teena

    @latinalovely, do you realize that adam is releasing this song for charity. the song has a message that will help people with their troubles. BTW, it is not a corny song, it is a good song.
