Adam Lambert Lends Voice to Queen for MTV Europe Music Awards Performance

Singer Adam Lambert lent his vocals to the rock group Queen Sunday night at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Belfast, Ireland. Queen was honored with the Global Icon Award for it's legendary musical contributions, and in the absence of their late/great front-man Freddie Mercury, The Band asked Lambert to perform a medley of hits starting with "The Show Must Go On," followed by "We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions." Such a task would No Doubt be daunting for many a singer, but not for Lambert.

At the end of the day, he delivered.

The most notable thing about his performance was that Lambert did not make the slightest attempt to diminish Mercury's genius by trying to duplicate him. Instead, he infused his own brand of genius into the arrangement. It was an homage to one of Lambert's admitted heroes and a golden moment for he and his fans - perhaps for some Queen fans as well.

But not all of them.

Just moments after the performance, some of Queen's most faithful fans began buzzing about Lambert's audacious belief that he could replace Freddie Mercury and that under no circumstances should anyone attempt to front the group except it's original singer. They are also not prepared to accept the argument that Lambert was not trying to fill Mercury's shoes, but instead was merely helping The Band pay homage to their own history as well as to Mercury's legacy.

Fair enough. Everyone has the right to pledge allegiance to their favorite icons, afterall. It should be noted, however, that Lambert's name was not once mentioned during the show, not even when Queen was introduced for the night's final performance. Lambert made no mention of it prior to the show either, even though his fans and the media were speculating about The Appearance for days. The fact that he was not named has raised questions as to whether this is more than a one-time appearance with Queen, or if he had his name kept silent intentionally in order to honor Mercury's memory.

We're going with the latter.

Though his epic vocal range and captivating theatrical presence has been compared to that of Freddie Mercury, Adam Lambert is far more interested in his own gig at the moment. The singer is now working on the follow up to his hugely successful debut album "For Your Entertainment" which is due out next Spring. His Glam Nation tour was a also world-wide success, solidifying him as one of the most charismatic live performers of 2010. After tonight's performance, Lambert's massive (and ever-growing) fan base ignited the Internet with praise and support for the singer, not once doubting his heart was in the right place.

"What an enormous honor to sing with QUEEN!" he Tweeted shortly after the show. "I could feel the spirit of Mercury alive on stage tonight. Thank u Brian and Roger and crew. LOVE."

Adam Lambert & Queen Give Best Performance At MTV Europe Music Awards (Video)

Getty Imagesmore »
Trying to fill in Freddie Mercury's shoes is no easy feat, but Adam Lambert did a fabulous job at honoring the late singer with this performance along legendary band Queen at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Watch it here.

Nobody can deny Adam Lambert has an incredible vocal ability and the pop singer left us truly impressed with his collaboration with Queen at the award show, where they basically stole the spotlight and honored being named the Global Icon.
The crowd loved the show as much as we did and was sent into a frenzy while Lambert and Queen tore through the classics "Show Must Go On," "We Will Rock You," and "We Are the Champions."

Watch it here and tell us what you think about the performance.....

ADAM LAMBERT SINGS with QUEEN at the EUROPEAN MUSIC AWARDS
Adam Lambert Stole the Show from the Award Winners



Kerry Kolsch, Yahoo! Contributor Network
Nov 6, 2011 "Contribute content like this. Start Here."


Adam Lambert is not Freddie Mercury, but he is a vocalist and showman of the same caliber. May and Taylor picked Lambert to sing because they know that he is a vocalist that can sing their music. It was apparent by the expressions on the faces of Dr. Brian May and Mr. Roger Taylor that they were appreciating Lambert's incredible vocal talent. Men who have sold over 300 million albums and stood next to Freddie Mercury while performing recognize greatness. Adam Lambert is an extraordinary singer and spectacular performer. No living person can match his drama and talent on stage today. Yet Adam Lambert is the Ron Paul of the music industry.

Why has the pop music industry failed to embrace Adam Lambert? Not one performer tonight tweeted about the Queen performance. No male singer today can match Lambert vocally or can own the stage like he can. Is it because Adam Lambert became famous as a result of American Idol? Country Music has no problem in embracing American Idol stars like Carrie Underwood or Scotty McCreery. Adam Lambert's performance tonight should wake up the non -believers. Adam Lambert is not a flash in the pan brought to fame by a reality show, but a serious talent who can stand the test of time. No one matched Lambert's vocals tonight, yet others took home the trophies.

Adam Lambert is not just a great entertainer, but also is a man of substance. In his short time in the spotlight he has helped raise over a million dollars for charity. Adam Lambert's character and humility showed through tonight when he embraced and honored Queen and did not draw the spotlight to himself. Adam Lambert absolutely out sang every other performer. Lambert was right at home as the front man for an iconic band.

Lambert is on the verge of releasing his sophomore album early next year and will soon be releasing his first single from that album this month. Lambert's fans across the globe eagerly anticipate his first single and second album. I have no doubt that this album will be a fabulous success. The question is, when will Adam Lambert, the mega talent of this generation, be embraced by the music industry?

A blog from Chloe who works at 95.1 WAPE radio station:

http://www.wape.com/weblogs/chloes-corner/...are-champions-/

I LOVE AWARD SHOWS!!! Ridiculous outfits, awkward scripted skits, and all of our favorite stars in one place! They're especially fun when they're filled with foreign accents and EuroFlair! The MTV Europe Music Awards went down in Belfast, Northern Ireland tonight and tons of Big Ape artists were there for the occasion! (Check out some photos here!)

Lady Gaga wore a contraption that was slightly reminiscent of something one would place on their roof for TV reception. I feel bad for anyone seated behind her. (Holy view obstruction, Batman!) Her performance of her new single, "Marry the Night" was really cool, though! She was standing on top of a giant moon! Gotta say... I kid about her outfits, but I do love me some Gaga! Mother Monster scored a bunch of awards including Best Female, Best Song and Best Video for "Born This Way." Paws up!

Bruno Mars was another highlight of the show! His performance was great as always and he rocked an, er, interesting pink jacket on the red carpet. (See boys? You CAN wear pink... ) Bruno also nabbed a few awards. Katy Perry was so cute!! She didn't perform, but she presented. She also hung out with Adam Lambert on the red carpet! Cuteness!!!!

The Biebs took home a few awards and, yes, I'm assuming he also took home the host of the show, Selena Gomez. On the red carpet, he shot down those cray cray baby daddy rumors and later performed his new Christmas song, "Mistletoe." Selena was absolutely adorable!! The camera just loves her and she changed her outfit at least 8 times! I loved the sparkly purple, slinky dress she wore for her performance! Oh and Snooki and JWoww made an appearance, but thankfully they didn't sing anything.

Party Rock was in the HOUUUUSE with LMFAO... performing inside a giant zebra. It was fun and also lulzy. David Guetta did a couple tracks with Taio Cruz, Ludacris and Jessie J. Coldplay opened the show, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers rocked it, too.

BUT....... THE PERFORMANCE OF THE NIGHT WAS QUEEN WITH A SPECIAL APPEARANCE BY ADAM LAMBERT!!! Yes, I'm slightly biased because Adam Lambert is my favorite EVER, but you must watch this for yourself.... he BLEW IT UP!!! I mean, I talk for a living and I have no words... that's how fantastic it was! And I mean, it was with the legendary QUEEN! EPIC! Prepare for a medley of "The Show Must Go On," "We Will Rock You," and "We Are the Champions."
Like I said... I have no words, so I'll just leave it at this: Adam, you ROCK!

Adam Lambert Joins Queen For Spectacular Performance At The 2011 MTV EMAs
November 6, 2011 By TJ 14 Comments
Adam Lambert - Getty
So, remember when Adam Lambert performed with Queen on the season 8 finale of American Idol and rumors began flying that he’d become the band’s new frontman? Adam went on to focus on his own successful career, but tonight (November 6) at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards, we got another peek at what an Adam-fronted Queen would look like as he joined the rock legends for a spectacular closing performance.

The performance was a high-powered medley of Queen classics, including “The Show Must Go On,” “We Will Rock You,” and “We Are The Champions.”

Of course, no one can replace Freddie Mercury, but that’s not what Adam was trying to do. He managed to simultaneously pay homage to Mercury by mostly staying true to the songs’ original form and putting his own stamp on them… with sensational results, we might add.
See Adam rock out with Queen at the EMAs in photos and video below:

.........As previously announced, Queen was honored with the global icon award, presented by Katy Perry, who told the crowd that first discovering the band at the age of 13 was a life changing experience for her.

"From that moment on I knew who I was," she said. "I would not be standing here today without the power, the passion and the drama of Queen."

Accepting the award alongside band mate Roger Taylor, Brian May said: "We were at the birth of MTV. How wonderful for us to be here forty years later."

May and Taylor closed the show with "American Idol" star Adam Lambert joining the duo for a suitably epic run through Queen hits "The Show Must Go On," We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions.".
