Adam Lambert Debuts New Single, 'For Your Entertainment'

After unveiling his debut-album cover earlier this week — which depicts a look he called "deliberately campy" — Adam Lambert made an appearance on "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" to present his first single, "For Your Entertainment," and chat with the host.

"I am so excited, I popped right out of bed," he said. "Turn it up really loud, guys! I know it's really early, but turn it up!" Seacrest then hit play. "For Your Entertainment" is a synth-heavy pop club tune or, as Lambert put it, "dance music with a glam rock shuffle beat." There are echoes of Lady Gaga, countless '80s tunes and, during the chorus, "Fame." He doesn't show off his vocal range until the end, when he unleashes some of his signature yells.

The single was produced by Dr. Luke, who has worked with Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears, Daughtry and Mos Def, and written with Claude Kelly, whose credits include collaborations with Spears, Clarkson and Miley Cyrus.

The album, also titled For Your Entertainment, is due November 23. According to Lambert, the disc will feature some songs with an "electro pop feel" and others that combine "guitar, live drums, a real rock sound." He added, "It's fun to create an eclectic collection."

Writers on the album include Pink and Max Martin, who wrote a tune called "What Do You Want From Me?"; Muse, who wrote a song called "Soaked"; and Justin Hawkins (formerly the lead singer and guitarist of the Darkness), who contributed "Music Again." Lambert himself wrote or co-wrote four songs: "Strut," "Aftermath," "Broken Open" and "Down the Rabbit Hole," which will be an iTunes bonus track. While Lady Gaga did write a song for Lambert, she did not contribute vocals. "Hope you're gonna wanna blast it while you're gettin ready for Halloween!! Then at the club!!!" Lambert tweeted just before playing "For Your Entertainment" on Seacrest's show.

Adam Lambert and Randy Jackson on Oprah’s “Biggest Reality Stars” Show

Not even Oprah is immune to the charms of “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert. The singer will talk about his upcoming album (and its attention-getting cover art) on Thursday’s episode, which is all about the biggest stars of reality TV. Lambert will be joined by America’s Best Dance Crew, “Project Runway” alumnus Christian Siriano, Randy Jackson and even cake bakers. Tune in for show updates!

4:36 p.m. — Adam Lambert time! Wow — he’s only appearing via Skype. Adam can’t make it to Chicago to talk to Oprah? He says he’s still finishing up his album. He says being discovered is a thing of the past, which is why he auditioned for “Idol,” to build a base. He talks about being a chorus boy in “Wicked” — and how he’s a “rock star”! And his segment ends, with an introduction for Randy Jackson. Jackson says he was a little shocked Adam didn’t win. Adam says he had no idea what was going to happen, and that it didn’t matter at the end of the day, because he got what he wanted: an album.

4:43 p.m. — Jackson talks about all the changes, and Oprah says she’s excited about Ellen Degeneres starting as a judge for season nine next year. But that’s for another episode. Jackson starts to pimp his “night job” show, “America’s Best Dance Crew.” He says the idea for the show came from watching the International Hip Hop competition. Season four winners “We Are Heroes” perform; the all-girl crew perform a superhero-themed show in shiny spandex and with mini-torches. Ha — they are literally breathless when Oprah tries to talk to them. Not because they’re in awe, but because their routine knocked the breath out of them.

Adam Lambert Reveals Single Details And Muse Collaboration, Defends Album Cover

Adam Lambert is once again taking to Twitter to reveal details about his Nov. 23 debut album, "For Your Entertainment."

On Wednesday afternoon (Oct. 28), the "American Idol" singer told fans that his debut single will be the album's title track, which was produced by Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald (Britney Spears, Katy Perry).

In addition, Lambert shared news about collaborating with two well-known U.K. rock acts. "There is also a song called 'Soaked' written by Muse!" Lambert Tweeted. "Also a tune called "Music Again" written by Justin Hawkins of the Darkness!"

The singer also revealed that he wrote four songs on "For Your Entertainment: "Strut," "Aftermath," "Broken Open" and an exclusive iTunes track entitled "Down the Rabbit Hole."

Just yesterday (Oct. 27), Lambert unveiled the album cover for "For Your Entertainment," which boasts a decidedly glam, '80s-inspired aesthetic and represents a big departure from "Idol" covers past. In the Warwick Saint-photographed close-up, Lambert sports dramatic eyeliner and cobalt-blue hair and poses in front of a celestial backdrop, with one fingerless-gloved hand pressed to his cheek.

The cover immediately drew mixed reactions from fans, but Lambert spoke up in defense of the heavily airbrushed image.

"Thank you to those who appreciate and understand that the album cover is deliberately campy," Lambert wrote. "It's an homage to the past. It IS ridiculous.

"For those that don't get it: oh well...Glad to have gotten your attention," added Lambert. "androgyny. Rock n Roll."

Adam Lambert defends ‘campy’ album cover

To those who found Adam Lambert’s upcoming album cover to be a tacky mash-up of twinkling fonts, outdated inspiration and retouching gone wrong, the American Idol runner-up wants to make one thing perfectly clear: he meant to do that.

The singer took to his Twitter account Wednesday, hoping to convince critics that the cover art represented a tongue-in-cheek tribute rather than a personal case of bad taste.

“Thank you to those who appreciate and understand that the album cover is deliberately campy,” Lambert wrote. “It's an (homage) to the past. It IS ridiculous.”

If some are still undecided about the singer’s fairly obvious intent (seriously, forget the glitter — the pore-free “glamour shot” look and frosty pink lipstick give it away), Lambert takes comfort in the fact he was at least noticed, if not understood.

“For those that don't get it: oh well…Glad to have gotten your attention,” the performer tweeted before signing off with, "Androgyny.

Adam Lambert, David Cook honor Michael Jackson at 'This Is It' premiere

Adam Lambert paid homage to Michael Jackson during his stint on "American Idol." The glam singer put his own stamp on Jackson's classic tune "Black or White" while competing on the show. And at the red-carpet premiere of "Michael Jackson's This Is It," Lambert shared with us just how the King of Pop inspired him.

"Michael wasn't afraid of just being himself," he said. "Michael didn't conform to one style of music. He did his own thing. That's the thing that makes me tick."

Another "Idol" alum, David Cook, also shared his experience with covering one of the King of Pop's tunes. "I actually borrowed it from Chris Cornell and, being on the show, you want to do songs people know — and who doesn't know Michael Jackson?" David Cook said about his take on "Billie Jean." "It's incredible to be here to honor Michael Jackson."

Lambert, who definitely isn't afraid to do his own thing when it comes to his music or his style, also recalled hearing the shocking news of Jackson's untimely passing in June. He was deep in the "Idol" tour, and the news stunned everyone.

"We were in rehearsals, actually," he explained, revealing that fellow contestant Lil Rounds was the first from "Idol" to hear the news and share it with the producers on the show. Lambert was busy singing when he noticed that something distressing was moving through the tour camp. "I kept singing and I pulled away from the mic and I said, 'What's going on?' We all just stopped."

Adam Lambert: The Hottest New Sex Symbol

The guyliner god is getting ready to release his debut album next month, but first he must go to bed with the press to help promote all things Adam Lambert. Just mentioning his names gets people Fired Up and excited to see what the ex Idol will do to the music world. With publications fighting to get the first big interview with the star, Details Magazine won the battle. The American Idol runner up spoke to Details about getting bras thrown at him while performing, his Idol fans, and the release of his new album.

Step One for Adam Lambert was to go on American Idol and wake up the world. Never had we seen such a performer with such passion and charisma on stage. Immediately, fans fell in love with his versatility. One week The Rocker would come out looking all ripped up and sloppy just to turn around the next week to wear a tailored suit with slicked back hair. As soon as you thought you could peg Lambert, he did the complete opposite, making him not only a style maven but also one of 2009's hottest sex symbols.

As many fans wait in anticipation for the new album, the only thing we can hold on to his is Idol past performances that made us love Adam Lambert. Those stimulating, music changing acts will have to fill the lull until Lambert's new CD comes out. In an all new exclusive interview with Details Magazine, Adam Lambert opens up about his performance style and his new role as a sex symbol. The American Idol runner-up said, "It's all fantasy -- that's what entertainment is. I'm here to entertain you, and if my sexuality is apparent and you respond to it, and you're attracted to it, then great, I'm doing my job. It ain't happening anyway!"

The cool confidence that exudes from Lambert has driven women to the point of throwing their under garments on stage while he does his thing. It happened at most of the spots on the American Idol tour, the calm crowd would erupt in madness when Lambert hit the stage. In the new interview Lambert addresses this by saying, A lot of times I'll pick up a bra and play with it during a song. It's a way to connect. I t's like, 'I threw my bra up onstage and you're spinning it around. Cool. Yay." Stay posted for more Adam Lambert news and make sure you pick up his new album when it hit stores later next month.

Official, Adam Lambert's First Single to Arrive Next Week

Adam Lambert has promised to give the first taste of his major-label debut album in the form of its first single next week. "The Single SHOULD be out next week...," he tweeted. "Sorry to keep you guys waiting!"

In addition to sharing info about his single, Adam also addressed "On With the Show", an album he recorded in 2005 before auditioning for "American Idol". He wrote, "Yeah this 'Take One' thing is basically 'On With the Show' re-tooled. Now this is ALL material recorded in '05 not written by me."

Adam Lambert will release his post-Idol effort "For Your Entertainment" on November 23. One day before the album arrives in stores, he will perform at 2009 American Music Awards along with Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, DAUGHTRY, Black Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys, Jay-Z and Jennifer Lopez.

On another news, Adam Lambert reportedly performed at a Halloween-themed private party in Boca Raton over the weekend. During the gig, he is rumored to don all-black costume with vampire fangs, and perform "Ring of Fire", "Black and White", "Mad World", "Born to Be Wild".

American Idol Adam Lambert narrows down his tracklist

"American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert has a new album, "For Your Entertainment," coming out November 23, and it looks like we'll know the full track listing some time in the next several weeks. According to Rockstar Weekly, some of the tracks are already more or less confirmed by sources. Some of the songs out there could reportedly include "Winners," "Entertainment," the still-untitled song written by Lady Gaga, and "Time For Miracles," the upcoming song from the movie "2012."

Adam Lambert will likely continue to promote the album over the next several weeks, with an appearance planned at the American Music Awards. In addition, we should also expect Lambert to show up at a few late-night talk shows in addition to doing a few impromptu concerts here and there.

Hang out In the Studio with Adam Lambert

Recording vocals at L.A.'s Capitol Studios, Adam Lambert has just uttered words that could strike terror into the heart of anyone who loved his over-the-top style on American Idol. ''In the verses I'm being really theatrical,'' he tells producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day's American Idiot), who's supervising tonight's session. ''Should I scale it back?''

Scale it back?

Fear not, Lambert fans. ''I think the ballsy way's better,'' Cavallo replies, and soon enough, Lambert's letting it rip on ''Music Again,'' a stomping electro-metal ditty penned by former Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins. He works his trademark wail so hard that he's eventually forced to request a notorious rock-star pick-me-up: Throat Coat tea. Lambert calls the stuff ''voice lube.''

Before he needed to soothe those vocal cords, though, he needed a sense of direction. ''When I got off the Idol tour, I had a little identity crisis,'' Lambert says during a break, backstage-casual in acid-washed skinny jeans, a Dickens-orphan scarf, and black leather cowboy boots. ''I was like, 'What do I wanna do?'''

The singer's management had solicited 28 songs from some of music's A-list writers and producers, and he had to decide exactly what kind of record he wanted to make. Inspired by the performances that seemed most successful on TV and on tour, Lambert settled on the idea of updating a guitar-heavy classic-rock sound with dance grooves and futuristic synths; he cites Muse and the Killers as influences. ''It's as if a '70s time capsule blasted off into space and you're watching it through a holographic filter,'' he says with a laugh. ''That's my big vision.''

In addition to Cavallo, Lambert's written and recorded with big names like Greg Wells (Katy Perry), Linda Perry (Christina Aguilera), and RedOne (Lady Gaga). This week he and his team are choosing which cuts will make the album, still untitled and due out Nov. 24. Cramming a year's worth of work into a couple of months has been ''stressful,'' he says, but back in the studio with Cavallo, where the singer's just nailed an especially Bowie-esque vocal riff, he's confident of one thing: ''Glam is back, motherf--ers!

Adam Lambert's 'Time for Miracles' begins his triumphant ascent

Power ballads exist to climax. I use that final word, in all its lascivious glory, for the obvious reasons. Created to accommodate "soft" emotion in hard rockers, these flash pot-fueled show-stoppers have to be as uncontainable as juvenile delinquent rock itself, and from "Dream On" onward that's meant one thing: an explosive ending in which the band, and especially the singer, pump blood into the vulnerability they've expressed by pushing themselves into unstoppable overdrive, straining at the song's seams, and finally breaking through with a swoon that obliterates everything else.

You think I exaggerate? Listen to "Time for Miracles," the single that begins this fall's triumphant ascent of "American Idol" finalist and hard rock liberator Adam Lambert with a swoosh and bang that does Freddie and Steven (and Ann and Jon and Axl) proud.

The song itself is surprisingly unoperatic, though its back story is straight out of "La Boheme." Co-written by Los Angeles rock power couple Alain Johannes and Natasha Shneider, it's a lonely declaration of faith in the healing power of love -- a message made tragic by the fact that Shneider died of cancer in 2008.

Lambert communicates this context through a world-weary approach in the early part of the song, including a nice, depressive blue note in the middle of the first verse and a vocal crack a few phrases later. There's not much drama for him to milk here -- no bed of roses, no pleasure cruise, just an aching heart and some deeply familiar romantic imagery. Lambert works his way through the undying flames by keeping it conversational, adding a slightly soulful twist as the strings swirl behind him.

Then, three minutes in, Lambert's melismatic growl signals that the summit's within sight. Producer Rob Cavallo gives him a hand with some pumped up kick drum and more orchestral dervishism. From there it's all fireworks. Lambert's voice is multitracked so that it keeps careening into itself, resolving in a final squall that, I must say, is pretty Aretha-esque.

Then Lambert takes us back to the lonely bedroom with a final, mournful reassurance that he's not giving up on us. The conductor puts down his baton and we're done.

For those of us biting our nails about what Lambert might accomplish with his debut album, this song, custom-made for the upcoming movie "2012," is neither utterly reassuring or at all discouraging. It's like a speed trial. Power ballad? Check. What comes next?

American Idol: Adam Lambert's "For Your Entertainment" releasing one day earlier

Adam Lambert fans around the world now have a new reason to rejoice: they will be receiving their beloved "American Idol" runner-up's debut album one day earlier than expected. The upcoming album, which will reportedly be entitled "For Your Entertainment," will now release on November 23. Why the move? It's likely that the studio bigwigs decided it would be a safer bet to not release on the exact same day as Susan Boyle (even if both of them seem to have fairly large fan bases).

There is still not a lot known about the upcoming album, outside of the fact that it will have a "futuristic" sound and feature elements of glam rock, techno, and a few other genres. Lambert's album will be the second one released by this past season's crop of "American Idol" alumni; Kris Allen will release his debut album on November 17 while Allison Iraheta's collection drops on December 1. All three currently have some music floating around on the internet, with Lambert's "Time For Miracles" leaking online on Monday.

Adam Lambert is an equal opportunist: "I am gay, but I like kissing women sometimes"

Adam Lambert may be gay, but it doesn't mean he doesn't enjoy smooching ladies.

"I am gay, but I like kissing women sometimes," he said in an interview in the latest issue of Details magazine. "Women are pretty. It doesn't mean I'm necessarily sleeping with them."

The singer remembers one encounter during the American Idols Live Tour, which wrapped up last month.

"There was one woman in Jersey who was actually gorgeous," said the singer. "She had obviously had a couple of cocktails, and during an after-show meet-and-greet, she just slithered up next to me and started kissing my neck. I was cool with it.

"But then it started to get a little weird because she was, like, moaning," the 27-year-old singer added. "She gave me a note that said, ‘I want to make out with you, here's my number,' and I was like, wow, this is crazy. Of course, had I been the one drinking the cocktails, I probably would have made out with her."

During the tour, he had to dodge bras being flung at him by audience members.

"I think it's weird that I'm having this effect on women," Lambert admitted in Details. "It's flattering. I've never had underwear thrown at me before. Clearly there's something significant about it, because there aren't a lot of openly gay men in the entertainment industry."

Adam Lambert's 'Time for Miracles' Video Premieres

American Idol runner-up walks through apocalyptic '2012' scenes, singing of lost love.

While Adam Lambert is still in the studio completing his major-label debut, For Your Entertainment, out on November 23, his music video for "Time for Miracles" premiered on MySpace on Wednesday morning (October 21). The song, produced by Rob Cavallo, is for the apocalyptic flick "2012," which hits theaters on November 13.

In the video, Lambert dons his best Goth clothes and anguished face as he makes his way through disaster scene after disaster scene, as everyone else around flees falling buildings and debris raining down from a fiery sky. Despite the fact that the world is coming to an end around him, Lambert looks triumphantly straight into the camera and sings about not giving up on a lost love.


Scenes of Lambert mugging for the camera and belting out the midtempo power ballad are intercut with clips from the John Cusack film. Toward the end of the song, the "American Idol" runner-up begins to show off his signature range and turn up the volume as he stands on top of a building.

The track itself, which was written by Alain Johannes and the late Natasha Shneider, found its way online earlier this week after it was released in Europe. It became officially available for purchase on Amazon and iTunes in the U.S. on Wednesday. (Hit the banners below and to the right)

Lambert told MTV News that Cavallo "pushed me to the limit" of his vocal range for "Time for Miracles, but he and his label have maintained that the power ballad is not representative of the songs on his album.

Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta Album Titles Revealed!

The Idoloonies have done it again! Just a week after Kris Allen fans uncovered his album cover art on the Barnes & Noble Web site, a group of die-hard Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta fans found album titles for each of their forthcoming releases posted on Amazon.com.

Pre-order all 3 albums from the banners on the right of this blog

A rep for 19 Entertainment confirmed to MTV News that Adam Lambert's major label debut is called For Your Entertainment and Allison Iraheta's release is named Just Like You.

Both album names appear to play into each artist's "Idol" persona — Lambert, the ultimate showman and Iraheta, the irresistibly relatable teenage girl. No word yet as to whether their albums will feature songs with those titles.

Iraheta's first single, "Friday I'll Be Over U," leaked online last week and is hitting radio soon. Meanwhile, Lambert told MTV News he was waiting to finish recording before he selected his first single, which should happen sometime this week. In addition, a song he recorded for the movie "2012," called "Time for Miracles," leaked this past weekend, but it is not an album single.

Recently, several Lambert song titles have been confirmed. Producer Rob Cavallo name-checked "Suburban Decay," "Music Again" and "Winners" in an interview with Yahoo! Music, while the current issue of Entertainment Weekly also cites "What Do You Want From Me" (a leftover from Pink's "Funhouse" album, co-written by Max Martin and Pink) and "Loaded Smile," by Adam and Linda Perry. (Rolling Stone reported on a Kara DioGuardi/ Lambert collaboration, "Strut," weeks ago.)

Michael Slezak at EW.com confirmed two Iraheta song titles, separate from her Max Martin-penned single. Fans can expect the Kevin Rudolf-produced "Beat Me Up" and the Iraheta/David Hodges collaboration "You Don't Know Me," which Allison cited as her one of her favorites.

Lambert's For Your Entertainment will drop November 23 and Iraheta's Just Like You will land December 1. Season 8's "Idol" champ, Kris Allen, releases his major-label debut first, on November 17, while Danny Gokey, the only other "Idol" contestant with a record deal, will come out with an album of country-influenced tunes in 2010.

Adam Lambert Promises 'Glam is Back' with his Debut Album

American Idol runner-up reveals new song titles and collaborators


While Adam Lambert's debut album doesn't hit stores for more than a month, the "American Idol" runner-up is offering fans some hints about what they can expect.

In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, Lambert says he was influenced by the Killers and Muse for the yet-untitled LP. "It's as if a '70s time capsule blasted off into space and you're watching it through a holographic filter," he said. "That's my big vision. ... Glam is back, mother----ers."

Lambert told the magazine that he struggled while deciding on a sound for the album. "When I got off the 'Idol' tour, I had a little identity crisis," he explained. "I was like, 'What do I wanna do?' "

Lambert worked with Rob Cavallo and former Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins on "Music Again" and has a song written by Pink and Max Martin, "What Do You Want From Me?" "It works on a relationship level, but I also relate to the sense of talking to the public," he said. "Like, 'This whole thing's a little freaked out, but please have faith in me, because I won't disappoint you.' "

He wrote the song "Strut" with "Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi, and he said, "It's a Gary Glitter/ T.Rex-type empowerment lyric. You're not gonna find love and happiness unless you let your hair down and strut your stuff."

Lambert co-wrote "Loaded Smile" with Linda Perry, and it's not quite as glittery as "Strut." "It's a bit dark, with all the vocals in falsetto," he said. "It feels like you're floating in space."

The album will span many genres, Lambert said, so he doesn't get stuck in one lane. "I don't think an album has to have one sound. ... I don't like boxing myself into a genre," he said. "But if I had to pick one major style, the classic-rock stuff is where I was most comfortable on the show — or at least that's what people saw me as the most.

"I wanna rock, I want people to dance, I want people to cry, I want people to smile and laugh," he said. "I wanna play dress-up!"

Adam Lambert Revives Tradition of making Music Videos to Promote Movies

Everyone knows by now that Adam Lambert has shot a video for his new song, "Time For Miracles". But everyone might not realize Adam is revitalizing the tradition of using the music video to promote a movie.

Music videos started out as a cheap way to promote movies in the late 1970's and 1980's. Most of them simply showed clips from the films over the music, like the Bee Gees in Saturday Night Fever.

Remember the videos for classics like St. Elmo's Fire ("St. Elmo's Fire"), The Breakfast Club ("Don't You"), Ghostbusters ("Ghostbusters") , Flashdance ("Maniac"), and Footloose ("Footloose")?

Anyone??? Bueller???

Madonna was an early pioneer in this use of the music video to promote movies. Her voice or image (or both) were featured in music videos for Vision Quest ("Crazy For You"), Desperately Seeking Susan ("Into The Groove"), Who's That Girl ("Who's That Girl"), and Dick Tracy ("Vogue"), among others.

Using music videos to promote movies fell out of favor over the past couple of decades, mainly due to MTV's transformation from music video television to reality television. Plus, audiences demanded high-quality (and expensive) music videos from artists, not just cheap edits of film clips to the tune of the song that plays over the closing credits of movies. Now most everyone watches music videos on YouTube, not on MTV or Friday Night Videos.

Since Adam has been in the studio shooting the video for "Time For Miracles" over the past week, it's a good sign he will likely be the main attraction, not just clips from the movie. It's been a while since a musician has been used to drive a movie. In fact, this may be the first time an openly gay musician has been used to promote a blockbuster movie. Quite an accomplishment if you think about it.

In case you don't know yet, the movie is about the end of the world on 12/21/12 as predicted by the ancient Mayans. The special effects look extraordinary, if over-the-top. The movie is set for a November 13th release date in the United States.

Producer Rob Cavallo Exclusively Discusses Adam Lambert Album

Superstar producer Rob Cavallo, who's worked with everyone from Green Day and My Chemical Romance to season 7 American Idol winner David Cook, came by the Yahoo! Yodel Studio in the middle of New York City's Times Square today.

Rob is one of several producers currently working on the upcoming Adam Lambert album, and he also worked on Adam's recently leaked 2012 movie theme, "Time For Miracles." He discussed how he's guiding Adam's recording process, even revealing for the first time some actual (somewhat Green Day/MCR-esque) SONG TITLES on the tracklisting! Yahoooooo!

Adam Lambert Preps His Glampire Fangs

Adam Lambert knows a popular trend when he sees one, so it’s no wonder he’s taking the popularity of vampire movies and shows and turning it into a very Glambert-esque Halloween costume! “I think I’m going to be a glampire,” he told reporters at the American Music Awards press conference this morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Wait, a what?

“You know, a vampire who glams it up!”

Obviously!

Besides making time for his Halloween planning, Adam’s been busy with his new, still untitled, album. On the new record, Adam says he collaborated with Linda Perry, Craig Wells, Ryan Tedder and more. But there are even more people he wants to work with.

“The thing about this album is because it’s a fast process, we’ve really just had to dive right in and I haven’t been able to spend a lot of time reaching out and experimenting with other artists,” he tells OK! of his desire to work with more people. “Hopefully in the future, though!”

The AMA press conference also reunited Adam with former American Idol judge Paula Abdul, whom he says he’s been keeping in touch with.

“Interesting, today was the first day that we’ve actually been in the same room together, though,” he adds to OK!.

As for her replacement on AI, Adam is definitely a fan of Ellen DeGeneres.

“I think Ellen will be great!” he gushed to OK!. “I think Ellen will provide, like, a perspective that’s slightly different - a non-music industry perspective which is important because the audience aren’t music industry people. The audience is the regular person.”

Adam Lambert's "Time for Miracles" Video to debut before "This Is It"


In addition to putting the finishing touches on his major-label debut and announcing the nominees for the 2009 American Music Awards, where he will be performing, Adam Lambert just finished shooting the music video for "Time for Miracles," a song recorded for the upcoming end-of-the-world blockbuster "2012."

"[The video] was really performance-driven. It was really about the lyric content and the emotional guts of the song," Lambert told MTV News on Tuesday (October 13) in Los Angeles.

But given that the tune is being used in a Roland Emmerich-helmed disaster flick, fans should expect a doomsday element to the clip as well. "There were a ton of extras on the set. What they were doing is they were staging scenes reminiscent of what happens in '2012,' " Lambert said.

Specifically, the "American Idol" rocker pointed to one sequence in the video where he sings calmly while chaos surrounds him. "I'm just walking through looking straight at the camera singing the song, and there's a riot going on around me — people being tossed in front of me, looting, you know, people being arrested," Lambert described. "That was pretty wild, to try to stay focused on the song while that was happening. But we had fun. It was a good day."

Recording the song was perhaps more of a challenge. Lambert explained that working with producer Rob Cavallo on the power ballad was fairly intense. "[He] pushed me to the limit," Lambert said. "I sang for my life. It was quite a day of recording, but it turned out great." Cavallo and Lambert went on to work together on several tracks that might end up on Lambert's CD come November 24. (Cavallo spilled three song titles to Yahoo! Music on Tuesday, including "Suburban Decay," "Winners" and "Music Again.")

A small snippet of "Time for Miracles" leaked late last week, but Lambert told us to expect the full song later this week. "I believe on the 18th [Saturday], 'Time for Miracles' will be released. ... I'm really happy about it."

Lambert is especially happy about where fans will be able to see the "Time for Miracles" video: the big screen. "The '2012' trailer will be premiering at the Michael Jackson film," Lambert revealed to MTV News, referring to a special trailer that will run before the upcoming documentary "Michael Jackson's This Is It."

Adam Lambert Performing at 2009 American Music Awards

Adam Lambert will perform at the 2009 American Music Awards. The announcement of Adam Lambert's 2009 AMA performance came from the singer himself on the radio this morning. While appearing on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, he Lambert let the world know that he would be performing a song at the 2009 American Music Awards in November. The date of the 2009 AMA's is November 22nd, and we can now add Adam Lambert to the long list of performers on that night. Even if there are a dozen people performing during the 2009 AMA's, it's an easy bet to say that Adam Lambert could be one of the most popular artists appearing on the show.

This is really good news for fans of Adam Lambert, because it will probably be the first live performance of his new single due out shortly. This new Adam Lambert single is going to be off of his first album, and though the album hasn't even been released in stores yet, it has sparked a ton of interest from fans online. This is really Adam Lambert just teasing his fans as well, because he won't even name the track that he is going to be performing. It's possible that he hasn't quite decided which song to perform, but he did note that it won't be Time for Miracles which will be featured in the upcoming movie 2012.

This announcement by Adam Lambert is probably single-handedly going to improve the ratings for the 2009 AMA's and ABC made a really smart decision by getting Adam Lambert to do the show this year. It's one of those things that is going to benefit both the performer and the network, as millions of Adam Lambert fans will be tuning in to see him for the first time since he left the American Idol stage. It will be interesting to see if other artists suddenly decide that they want to perform at the 2009 AMA's as well, knowing that the audience share is about to increase with this latest announcement. It's going to be a big Adam Lambert party on November 22nd, and the audience gets a free front row seat.

Adam Lambert's first album is going to be released on Tuesday, November 24th in stores, and this awards show is going to give him the perfect place to advertise one of his new songs. The song that he performs will most likely be the first single off of the album, so it should be on radio rotations by the time the 2009 AMA's get started. That still won't keep people from tuning in though, because the best part about seeing Adam Lambert perform is the on-stage show that is sure to happen. Now we just have to wait for Sunday, November 22nd to roll around so that we can see what he has planned for ABC that night.

Moviefone Listeners get their First Listen to Adam Lambert's 'Time for Miracles,' from '2012'

Adam Lambert, the American Idol star, performs "Time for Miracles," the theme song from Columbia Pictures' 2012, the new action film from Roland Emmerich. Viewers can catch a tease of the song at AOL Moviefone, where a music teaser with footage from the film and Lambert recording the song premieres today.

2012 will be released in theaters nationwide on November 13, 2009.

Lambert said, "'Time for Miracles' is a great song and perfectly fits the themes of the movie. I was thrilled to record this song for 2012 and I'm glad I had the chance to help create a unique sound for this movie."

The song was produced by Rob Cavallo and written by Natasha Shneider and Alain Johannes Moschulski. The song was mixed by Chris Lord-Alge. The song will be included on the 2012 soundtrack distributed by RCA Records, due in stores November 10.

Never before has a date in history been so significant to so many cultures, so many religions, scientists, and governments. 2012 is an epic adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors. The film is directed by Roland Emmerich and written by Roland Emmerich & Harald Kloser. Producers are Harald Kloser, Mark Gordon, and Larry Franco.

ADAM LAMBERT rose to fame during the eighth season of "American Idol," in which he was the runner-up. After impressing the judges with his performances of such songs as "Mad World," "Ring of Fire," "Whole Lotta Love," and "The Tracks of My Tears," Lambert's experience culminated in performing "We Are the Champions" on stage with Queen. Since then, several of his songs have charted on the Hot 100 and Hot Digital Songs charts.

Lambert is currently recording his first album on 19 Recordings/RCA Records for a November 2009 release.

Adam Lambert 'Time for Miracles' Music Teaser From '2012': Exclusive Sneak Peek

American Idol's resident guyliner-wearing showman Adam Lambert is back with his first song since nabbing runner-up honors on the show last season. Not surprising to anyone who saw Lambert's rendition of Johnny Cash's 'Ring of Fire,' his new song, entitled 'Time for Miracles,' is extremely theatrical ... which makes sense, seeing as it's the theme song for disaster-movie auteur Roland Emmerich's latest end-of-the-world extravaganza '2012.'

Moviefone has an exclusive sneak peek at the song, featuring clips of Lambert belting out the tune in the studio, as well as providing the backdrop for plenty of eye-popping apocalyptic footage from the film.

Lambert's spine-tingling -- and never-pitchy, dawg -- vocals provide the perfect musical accompaniment to scenes of cities blowing up, international landmarks crumbling like sandcastles, the ocean swallowing Hollywood, and divorced dad John Cusack racing around the globe to save his ex-wife (Amanda Peet) and their fam from the Mayan-predicted apocalypse on Dec. 21, 2012.

The '2012' soundtrack hits stores Nov. 10, followed swiftly by the end of the world, er, release of the movie in theaters on Nov. 13.
