Adam Lambert Didn't Bail on 'Idol' Performance; He Wasn't Invited. So There!

Adam Lambert Didn't Bail on 'Idol' Performance; He Wasn't Invited. So There!-photo

Shock waves rippled across the Internet on Wednesday when reports surfaced that American Idol fave Adam Lambert had abandoned a scheduled performance on last night's season finale. "How could this be?" Glambo Nation collectively wondered. "He's always been the consummate professional!"

Well, as it turns out, reports of the "For Your Entertainment" singer's diva-tude have been greatly exaggerated.

Lambert took to his Twitter account early today to set the record straight on the finale brouhaha.  As he explains, there's no way he could have canceled the performance at the last minute—because he was never invited to perform in the first place. There; that'll show 'em!

As Lambert notes,

"All i ever heard was: 'you've not been asked to perform on finale.Would you like to sit in the audience?' Me:sorry-Too much work to do today...Sick of certain journalists and jealous people in the industry trying to stir up bullsh*t drama. Must not be getting laid. GET A LIFE! HAHA."

Yup, totally—joke's on everybody else, Adam.

Lambert goes on to say that he is currently preparing to embark on his upcoming tour and, thus, had no time to keep a seat warm on the Idol finale. The theme of Lambert's road jaunt?

"love, diversity, peace, bravery & pride.Oh n' GLAM."

We bet there won't be an empty seat in the house.

    He sounds awfully angry for someone who says they are promoting love, peace and all the rest. Haha. Wouldn't you be? He is human.

    Adam should be worried about the TYPE of people he is attracting as fans......not all mind you...but a great number appear to be uneducated and quite crass. It's unfortunate because he does have a good voice , but his actions and words have produced a vicious, unsavoury lot of....ah...... supporters? This doesn't help in promoting him.

    I don't why you guys are upset with the writer of this, he's just being a little snarky. At least he's not like Shuter, completely fantasizing a whole unreal scenario around Adam. I also don't where Adam is showing any kind of anger in his tweets. He defended himself and then got a little snarky himself, so WHAT!

    He sounds like he has anger issues. I was laughing when he started talking about peace and love. Hey, I'm all about love so get a life! Sit down! Shut up! Yeah, I can see how tolerant he is. He obviously has no idea how he comes across.

    If Adam performed On AI 9, He would have out shined many of the performers and the winner of the show and turned into Adam Lambert show, it's not Adam's fault that he is better then anybody out there, I mean look at what happend last year,he stole the show even though he was runner up. Even when he was not on AI show people are still talking about him and not kris allen, something about Adam that keeps people wanting more.

    Never believed that Adam would cut rehersals, there were many other past Idols who were not there, although a performance by Adam would have made the show 1000 times better, possibly thats why he wasn't asked, he would have stole the show , he can't help it, its just what he does...and after all Simon was the star of the show. Anyway, I want to say congrats to Lee, he deserves it. and I wish the best of luck to him.

    He sounds awfully angry for someone who says they are promoting love, peace and all the rest. Haha. His "anger", Karen, is righteous anger! He has a right, and indeed, an obligation to stand up to bogus journalism and outright lies! Adam is probably really sick and tired of all the haters trying to rain on his parade so he simply set the record straight. Nothing wrong or hateful about that. And his point is a valid one....these bogus "reporters" probably can't get laid! LOL! You go Adam!! Love Ya!

    The show was supposed to be about Crystal and Lee ... and Simon. If Adam had shown up, in any capacity, it would have been about him. In fact, he stayed at home and it became about him. Besides, he stole Janet Jackson's thunder on the AMAs. I'm sure she thought her crotch-grabbing routine would be the topic at watercoolers. Maybe SHE refused to come on if Adam performed. Why not?

    It's important to remember that when Idol was planning their finale, Adam was already overseas promoting his CD and was scheduled to return overseas about month later after his first international promotion. That coupled with the fact Adam had to film his new video and kick off his Glamnation tour probably made it difficult to plan for Adam to be at the finale. Adam had stated long ago in an interview about how he would love to be on the finale but he probably would have scheduling conflicts (this is paraphrased). Ooops, scratch the extra a.

    Shuter got what he wanted - lots of hits by mentioning Lambert's name. Shuter's lying and using the guy for his own purposes. If you don't recognize this, Tim, you should be in another business. Actually you probably do it yourself. Like now.

    I'm glad he wasn't asked to go on that boring show. He's way too busy preparing to blow us away with his near sold-out Glam Nation tour!! He works so hard to please his fans. Can't wait!!

    I think ir was a smart move that AI didn't invite him to perform 'coz everybody would seem nothing compared to him (except Kelly jordan and David Archuletta) hahaha

  • karen

    Its not like he was really obligated, he wasn't a "winner", why does everyone lump him in with David Cook's absence? Not like every contestant was there, nor was every past contestant missed. This is a good thing for Adam.... when everyone speculates on why a past contestant wasn't there, even the haters, they are merely affirming his significance, lol,

    I can't believe they are making up stuff in the name of journalism,they should be asamed of them self. Adam Lambert is preparing for tour yhat kicks of in a week, if he is not invited to perform then why waste time? AI should have handled this better but then again if Adam was to perform last night then he would have over shadowed lot of performer last night aspecially Kris Allen and that would have been bad too. So who is to say,should've,coul'dve,would've,blah..blah..blah.......

    Well it’s about time ADAM took this SH***T and shoved it up their A**. Get angry ADAM , go crazy, get pissed because I know I would have and don’t give F**k what your so called fans or anyone thinks or says about it. YOU are only human and you can get angry like every one else does. You deserve to be angry even if your not. I hate when people say relax don’t be angry. ITs like who F**k are you tell me I cant show emotion. He is Human not some F**king robot. ADAM IS REAL!!!!!! SO keep on keeping it real ADAM. RESPECT!

    Well, Timmy, if you did even a modicum of research you would know that all but a few of Adam's shows are indeed sold out. Quite a few of the venues reported that his show was the fastest selling show in their history. So there. (And seriously, Timmy -- do you have any idea of how immature you sound in this article? If not, allow me to enlighten you -- you are the one who sounds like a 5 year old.)

    He sounds awfully angry for someone who says they are promoting love, peace and all the rest. Haha. Some of what Adam tweeted isn't on here. He was actually nice about it, just wanted to clear the air. Adam isn't a very professional and kind person and he is a little tired of people like this Popeater guy taking aim with no foundation.

    It is definately short sighted on IDOLs part to not have him participate! I didn't take any of the gossip seriously about Adam cutting rehersals because those of us that follow Adam's career knew many weeks ago that he had not been scheduled to appear. We were quite surprised by that fact. However, IDOL is on a slippery slope downward anyway, I'm sorry to say. I watched the program last night and realized that Lee and Crystal were over-shadowed by Simon's departure festivities and the big reveal was such so anti-clamactic and I discovered I really didn't care who won or lost. So, sad. The other thing that I find interesting is how faithfully "anti-Adam fanatics" and "moral critics" find their way to anything with Adam's name attached to it.

    Adam and his press person need to get on the same page. They're telling two different stories and confusing the issue even further. I agree that Adam sounds angry. He says he's all about love then tells someone to get laid and get a life. He actually sounds like he's the one in need of sex. He needs to calm down and relax.

    Well I believe Adam and it is Idol's Goof for not even asking him to perform. How could you not ask Adam Lambert to be there to perform !!! Idots !!!

    He sounds awfully angry for someone who says they are promoting love, peace and all the rest. Haha. Yup, Shuter and his Bulls**8 got caught this time."Insiger" means a fabriccation,lie fiction to follow. But real info comes from real people w names. RogerWidynowski of 19Entertainment issued a statement saying Adam was on voice rest, was never scheduled to perform was merely to be in the grroup lineup of former contestants- But Adam was put on voice rest and all his radios interviews and the AI group thing was cancelled. Adam is a very dependable artist. He has the guts to be an honest open book,and we know that.

    no, he doesn't sound angry to me..he's amused. he said HAHA. have u ever considered...that this popeater blog guy actually not happy about this boring season 9 and for adam not being there so he needed to stirr a drama, blame it on adam? it's crazy..what has adam done, it should've been abt the winner or simon's departure, yet the headline was abt adam lambert not attending! and they don't bother with david cook, jennifer hudson, clay aikon, chris daughtry, kate mcphee...

    What I find odd is the writer who started the whole thing Robert Shuter of Popeater. He obviously fabricated the whole thing. Didn't he figure out that people would latch on to it. I know you can't take a blog called Popeater seriously just like you can't take a blog called Celebuzz seriously. Oh and Timmy boy - really A1 journalism on your part.
