American Idol Season 8 Runner-Up Adam Lambert sings "Broken Open", from his award-winning album "For Your Entertainment", on VH1 Unplugged.

"For Your Entertainment" has reached Number 35 on the Billboard charts, while the latest single, "Whataya Want From Me," is currently at Number 10 on The Billboard Hot 100.

"Critical response to "For Your Entertainment" was generally positive. The Huffington Post called the album "An instant classic" and also stated that "As a whole, "For Your Entertainment" marks one of the most impressive mainstream pop album debuts in recent memory." The Detroit News said that "It goes without saying that "For Your Entertainment" is the most poised debut from any "Idol" to date. Lambert has a vision and has successfully honed a sound that pays homage to his heroes while carving a niche for himself." Spin said the album is "perhaps the strongest, most flavorful batch of tunes to reach an American Idol vet, and Lambert's polymorphous vocal skills unite dancefloor strut and hard-rock pomp in a convincing glam package." The Lady GaGa co-writen "Fever" and "Whataya Want from Me," written by Pink and Max Martin, are phenomenally well-crafted pop singles that give Lambert the opportunity to shine. To co-opt one of Simon Cowell's favorite phrases: Lambert's music sounds current in a way that Idol albums rarely do.""

"Broken Open" is one of the four songs Adam Lambert co-wrote on the album. He also put his pen to "Strut", "Pick U Up" and "Aftermath". In his interview with Jim Cantiello of's Extended Play, Adam Lambert discusses the emotional inspiration behind "Broken Open".
