Always Loved, Never Banned! 20/11/2011

Screencap thanks to @lorismile1

Just ran into @adamlambert in green room. He says he stuck to AMAs script this time. "They trust me now." lol!


Two years after Adam Lambert kissed a boy and ABC executives didn't like it, during his notorious and now-legendary show-closing performance at the 2009 American Music Awards, the "American Idol" rabble-rouser returned to the show as an AMAs presenter this Sunday, effectively ending the network's unofficial Lambert ban and bringing the controversy-baiting Idol's crazy career full circle. "Has it been two years already? Wow, time flies," he quipped, as he took the stage wearing a natty suit and a knowing smile.

Honestly, this year's AMAs show was so dull, and so light on true watercooler moments, I bet producers were secretly hoping Adam would do something jaw-dropping, something "outrageous," just to generate some sort of buzz and spice things up. Unfortunately, Adam didn't perform, he just introduced OneRepublic (a band featuring his frequent collaborator Ryan Tedder)...but still, it was all very exciting.

Adam Lambert Reveals Title to New Album, Single

It all went down on TwitterTrespassing is the name of the full-length (a song of the same name, which Lambert worked on withPharrell Williams, is also on the album) and the first single, co-written by Dr. Luke (Britney Spears, Ke$ha, Kelly Clarkson) with Claude Kelly (Bruno Mars’ “Grenade,”Jessie J’s “Price Tag”), Ammo (Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”) and Cirkut (Rihanna’s “You Da One”), is called “Better Than I Know Myself.”
Minutes after posting the tweet to his 1.2 million followers, the hash tag #BETTERTHANIKNOWMYSELF was trending on the social media site.

Other writers and musicians who worked on the album include songwriters Ryan Tedder and Evan Bogart and Chic founder and veteran producer Nile Rodgers, although it has yet to be revealed which songs made the final track listing.     

As for a release date, Lambert announced only that it would be “dropping” in 2012. Back in September, RCA Records CEO Peter Edge and president Tom Corson told the Hollywood Reporter that the album would be out in the first quarter, which ends March 30.

No doubt the label will want the promotional cycle to coincide with season 11 of American Idol so that Lambert can make another appearance on the show -- he’s been back three times since finishing second on season 8: as a mentor and performer on season 9 (he sang “Whataya Want From Me” during Top 9) and again in season 10, when he performed “Aftermath” during the Top 13.

On Friday, THR reported that Lambert will be a presenter on Sunday’s American Music Awards, marking his return to the stage where he ignited much controversy two years earlier with a mid-performance, same-sex kiss.

the AMAs are Sunday on ABC! Adam Lambert Returns to 2011 AMAs as Presenter; Producer Says He 'Was Never Banned'

Two years after sparking a wave of controversy with a same-sex mid-performance kiss, the "American Idol" runner-up will be back on the ABC show’s stage.

“Adam Lambert was never banned from the show,” says American Music Awards executive producer Larry Klein emphatically while eyeing a chair on the aisle of row two, audience left (see photo). That’s where the American Idolrunner-up will be seated on Sunday night, just behind Heidi Klum. Lambert will also be presenting an award, marking his first return to the ABC show where he sparked a wave of controversy.

As for the future, Klein very much looks forward to another Lambert performance, but not this year. “Adam Lambert is a friend of ours, he's talented and I like everything about him,” says Klein, “It’s like [AMAs creator] Dick Clark always used to say: ‘I don't care what people do on stage because a stage is for their performance. I care about how people act offstage.’ Adam was performing on a stage. Did he get carried away? Absolutely. Was he regrettful afterwards? Of course he was, but it’s over. ABC never banned him and Dick Clark Productions never would. We’d absolutely have him back.”
That opportunity will come soon enough. On Friday, Lambert tweeted that his long anticipated second album will be titled Trespassing and is slated for release in Spring 2012. He also revealed that a song of the same name appears on the album and was co-written byPharrell Williams. 

 39th annual American Music Awards air Sunday at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Watch Lambert's 2009 AMAs performance below:

Shallow V-neck T-shirt, the rhinestone-lock reinforce the impression has been made in the neck along the line. Adam's unique choice of the monotone look good. Bangle and Bracelet, etc., by collecting jewelry is all on the left arm, not to rock the Kotekote Corde, taking a delicate balance. Simple大人Rashi also emphasizes that the denim pants. Additionally, please have the attention, fur tail attached to his left hip. Gal, Gal among men, this item was an explosive boom season. Adam would have to fashion a positive sense of Corde's hat off without hesitation. Calm, sublimating the adult well coordinated. Monotone Corde tend to be monotonous, and the difference Tsukeyou around in small wording.

Claude Kelly Demo


So it's this song that Claude Kelley demo'd?


Better Than I Know Myself

Cold as ice
and more bitter than a December
winter night
that's how i treated you

And I know that I – I
I sometimes tend to loose my temper
And I cross the line
Yeah that’s the truth

I know it gets hard some time
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say

Coz if I wanted to go – I would have gone by now
But I really need you near me
Keep my mind off the edge

If I wanted to leave – I would have left by now
But you’re the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

All along
I tried to pretend it didn’t matter
If I was alone
Deep down I know

If you were gone
For even a day I wouldn’t know which
Way to turn
Coz I’m lost without you

I know it gets hard some time
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say

If I wanted to go – I would have gone by now
But I really need you near me
Keep my mind off the edge

If I wanted to leave – I would have left by now
But you’re the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

If I wanted to go – I would have gone by now
But I really need you near me
Keep my mind off the edge

If I wanted to leave – I would have left by now
But you’re the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

If I wanted to go – I would have gone by now
But I really need you near me
Keep my mind off the edge

If I wanted to leave – I would have left by now
But you’re the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

Thanks to NoAngel on Adamtopia


  1. I know Adam's performance of "Better Than I Know Myself" will be so much better than Claude Kelley's version. I like the words to the song. Right now I'm getting set for the AMA's to start. Got some friends over, food and drinks...waiting on our Rock God to strut. It will be good seeing Adam on TV again this weekend. I'm getting a little spoiled with his weekly appearances. I guess we'll be talking about the Red Carpet and his presentation tomorrow.

  2. No, of course Adam was not banned. Heaven forbid!! He was just coincidentily canceled from 3 or 4 shows on ABC and has not been on the network since. Riiiiiight!! If Modern Family was not on ABC I would boycott it! Think I will pass on tonight's show and watch the videos of Adam on the red carpet and presenting. I know you will have them up soon!! Thank you in advance. I love and appreciate all your hard work. Jennifer

  3. so excited for tonight's AMA i hope to be home to watch but if not i hve DVR set to record. hope you are having a great day. hugs

  4. Thanks so much Gloria!!! Cannnot wait for the AMA's!!!

  5. Gloria,

    Thank you so much for your beautiful post! So excited to have Adam BACK on the AMAs!!!


  6. Tonight's AMA's were one big borefest. If it weren't for Adam wouldn't have stuck with it - actually I didn't - bailed out after he appeared and just had audio on - all sounded the same after a while. Still annoyed that ABC did this to him and that he had to be "accepted" back into polite society by the schmucks who put on this awful talentless display.
    But Adam must have a reason for doing it - thank god he wore that silver suit - a subtle up-yours to the cowards who banned him.

    Sorry to blather on like this, but appreciate getting it out of my system here.

    Love everything else on your blog today, Gloria, and appreciate all the hard work you do to keep us up to date. The pics are great and seeing Adam with his wonderful Sauli is heart-warming.

    Luvya, kid - lee
