    Not sure what to make of this. It's directed by the same guy that does many of the Lady Gaga videos.

    I really liked the bit with the cane and the legs.

    This gives me a much better impression of his song, but I'm still not Gaga for it...

    The AMA sound people need to be fired. He sounded horrible on there.

    Not really heard Adam Lambert before; I seem to like the song though. Video reminds me of a Ricky Martin one years ago.

    eh still not a fan. On the AMA I got the feeling he was trying to hard to sound like late great Freddie Mercury of queen. Especially at the end of that horrible song.

    I like the song. Would have liked to have seen a bit more choreographed dancing since it's more of a dance song. He looked great but sometimes when the camera is close he is trying too hard. Some of the outfits were really cool too. I like that he's an artist that takes some chances with fashion and is a bit more out there than the run of the mill male pop singer we have seen so much of in recent years.

    the difference between that video and a Lady Gaga video is what's that word... talent? Not that he isn't a talented singer, but Lady Gaga is a talented performer, and she knows how to utilize all the different aspects of performance (not to mention she has fun doing it).

    The best part? He managed to have a "dance sequence" without moving. Yes, yes he must be the next David Bowie...or some shit.

    In all fairness to Adam, that is his first video, so in that respect it's not that bad. Give him time. I'm sure we will begin to see his talent develop as he goes along.

    Pretty generic stuff, really. Insert singer here and start filming.

    Adam is a very talented singer....he is just all over the place right now with his performances and seems to be trying a bit too hard...he just needs to settle down and deliver his performances more subtly. The video btw is disappointing and boring. And this is coming from a HUGE Adam fan. Check out his album...it is very good in comparison.

    Eh, the singing was somewhat better than the AMA, show....but....did he borrow those Opera-length gloves from Shania Twain?icon_question.gif
    And why does he think he needs manscara??

    I think he's genuinely sexy in this video BUT aside from some cleaver film effects, it's a bit of a lazy video...I'm still on the fence about that song.

    He is no Elvis Presley or Michael Jackson that's for sure!!! his moves are so predictable and very staged too!!

    Ducky46 saideh still not a fan. On the AMA I got the feeling he was trying to hard to sound like late great Freddie Mercury of queen. Especially at the end of that horrible song.


    I agree Ducky46 although I probably would've enjoyed it if he ACTUALLY sounded like Freddie... he is just sort of lost with his style IMHO.

    I think he has so much potential. It's not often that someone has chops like that. He needs to tone it down and work with some simple instruments. Go in seclusion and write a whole album with just him and a piano.

    He mods his voice so much... he doesn't need to! Anyone can do that with all those effects.

    I think Rufus needs to teach him a thing or two about song writing.

    Yes, that's probably the best way to handle most situations in life...

    After he decided to (rather prematurely) compare himself to Bowie, I figured it would be humorous to point said folly out. My mistake...

    He's already had about 14 minutes out of his 15. Right?

    Wait a minute....he said that about himself?! Are you kidding me?! My dislike for the guy has now grown to online shopping for Anthrax spores. One "fan" letter to Adam Lambert from "David Bowie" coming up! And sorry, to bite your head off, lol. I had no idea...

    I wish the video would not make it appear that he was trying to seduce women with his song. How about remaking the whole video with shirtless guys. If he wants to be who he is, he should not have accepted a concept that makes him look str8.

    Lol, I told a friend of mine about his David Bowie comment and without missing a beat he called him "The hate sex child of Bridget Neilsen and Michael Jackson". And this is why I love my friends.
