Adam Lambert Makes His Triumphantly Fabulous Return to ‘American Idol’ (VIDEO)

Good to see that Adam Lambert can still make time in his busy schedule to school the kids on how it’s done. Lambert—who placed second place in last season’s American Idol but won first place in America’s hearts—returned to the show this week to mentor this season’s contestants. And last night gave a hands-on lesson in the art of crowd-pleasing with a wicked-dramatic rendition of his smash-hit “Whataya Want From Me.”

His hair slicked back in a pompadour and sporting a shiny blazer in honor of this week’s Elvis theme, Lambo put on a clinic not just for the aspiring Idols, but for us all. Click the video below and soak up the inspiration:
