Back on February third, we told you that American Idol contestant [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adam Lambert[/lastfm] was set to take center stage as [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Queen[/lastfm]’s new lead singer for their Summer tour.
But, according to Mr. Lambert’s Twitter, his words about the EMA’s were taken out of context and created unnecessary buzz about his “new gig.” Nevertheless, both Lambert and Queen fans were effected when Adam himself broke the news that he will indeed NOT be leading the vocals for the tour.
During the finale of the eighth season of American Idol, Adam took the stage with the remaining members of Queen and delivered a flawless performance of their rock hit ‘We Are the Champions’ alongside that season’s winner, Kris Allen.
Queen drummer Roger Taylor even spoke highly of Lambert in an interview with Billboard. “He has grown into a really great performer with an astonishing voice with a range that’s great. We would like to work with him again. There’s nothing signed just yet but we’re talking about live dates. It could be very exciting.”
Adam Lambert and Queen fans alike know that no one could ever replace original front man Freddie Mercury — his presence, creativity, and vocals are unforgettable. However, Adam stepped up to the rock n’ roll plate and proved that he could easily complete the band’s puzzle. He wowed audiences with his incredible vocals, hitting the notes only Mercury could hit. Lambert also carries a style all his own, sporting eye-liner, eye-shadow and even platform boots — a bit reminiscent of Mercury as well.
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], inspired by Queen’s ‘Radio Gaga’ was also a contender for the vacant space.
So now that the air is cleared, is she back in the running? Who’s it going to be?
Oh, you’re welcome Adam!
Now we want to hear from YOU!
