Video: Adam Lambert Performs Stunning Acoustic Version Of “Aftermath” On American Idol Results Show
March 10, 2011 By Story Gilmore 5 Comments 19retweet
Adam Lambert can do it all.
The American Idol season 8 breakout star can rock a tune like no one’s business then coo sweetly on a ballad. He showed off his softer side with an acoustic performance of his song Aftermath on tonight’s (March 10) American Idol season 10 results show.
Sitting on stage with a guitar player–and looking stunning we might add–Adam sang his heart out, hitting notes other Idols could only dream to hit so effortlessly.
A dance version of Aftermath, which in its original form appears on Adam’s debut album, For Your Entertainment, is available to download on Adam’s official website. Proceeds from the single’s sales will benefit The Trevor Project.

We've been waiting for Adam Lambert to perform his acoustic version of "Aftermath" on "American Idol" all week, and the singer managed to more than deliver.
For someone the show likes to advertise for his spectacle, Adam went against the grain and delivered a soft (but powerful) performance with a relaxed atmosphere -- and even a more relaxed look. Following the performance (which was met with screams from across the audience), he then preceded to have a bit of fun with Ryan Seacrest and then Jennifer Lopez -- who did the best to teach him the "dougie" while sitting down at the judges' table. (It's a shame she didn't actually stand up and rock it, since that would have been such a great TV moment. She did offer to "teach him later.")
Ultimately, Adam more than accomplished his goal of spreading the news about the song -- which is available for download at Adam's official site. Will this result in more radio play? If nothing else, it should result in more downloads.

Looking remarkably tame in a T-shirt, jeans and a black jacket, former "Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert dropped in for an acoustic run through his single "Aftermath," which mixed his signature power high notes with some nuanced balladeering. Proceeds of the sales of a dance-remix version of the single will go to the anti-bullying Trevor Project. Also dropping in was Diddy-Dirty Money to perform "Coming Home," complete with a dramatic piano assist from Skylar Grey.

Glamtravler Adam sounded great, many fans in audience. As soon as the doors opened, we started yeling. He waved and smiled.

Kirstin At ‘Idol:’ Aww…Adam Lambert Freaked Out When He Met Steven Tyler!
Watching Adam meet one of his idols for the first time was a magical moment! He was completely starstruck!
One of the perks of getting to see the live tapings of American Idol is witnessing what happens during the commercial breaks. However, tonight was even more special than usual because one of my favorite Idol alums, the one-and-only Adam Lambert, was in the house — and the energy was electrifying.
You all watched Adam, 29, sing an acoustic version of his song, “Aftermath,” to benefit The Trevor Project, but what you DIDN’T see was his interaction with the three judges afterward. At first, Adam and Ryan Seacrest stood center stage chatting for a bit (with their mics off, unfortunately!). Randy Jackson couldn’t get up on stage fast enough to congratulate his former contestant with a big hug <3 while Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez stayed back at the judges’ table.
After Randy left, Adam took off his microphone, sipped on Smart Water and went over to chat with the Idolists. It was super sweet because he took time to hug each and every contestant — even James Durbin, who told HollywoodLife.com last week he is NOTHING like Adam (despite comparisons). After meeting Adam in person, I think James had a change of heart though, because the two of them continued to talk for awhile, even snapping photos together. It was almost like Adam was passing the baton to James — I hope James realizes just how lucky he is!
Adam was super sweet to chat with all the contestants, but I could tell he was dying to say hello to J. Lo and meet Steven. He rushed over to the judges table and gave Jennifer a huge hug. After exchanging pleasantries with her, Adam turned to Steven and almost lost it.
I could read his lips. ”Wow,” he said. “It’s an honor to meet you!”
Steven, 62, didn’t seem too ruffled, but clearly enjoyed meeting Adam as well. I couldn’t see exactly what he said to him, but he did point out Adam’s necklace (Glamberts, do you know what he had on tonight?) and nod enthusiastically, as if he loved it. I half expected Adam to take off his necklace and give it to Steven on the spot!
Sadly, the commercial break was only so long and Adam had to say his goodbyes quickly before the show went back on-air. Glamberts in the crowd were screaming his name and Adam — who’s always so good to his fans — waved and smiled appreciatively before booking it out of the studio just in time for the cameras to start rolling once again.

'American Idol 10' - Adam Lambert performs and one goes home
The highlight of the results show was Adam Lambert's acoustic performance of "Aftermath," a song he co-wrote that speaks to overcoming adversity. A remix of the song is available at AdamOfficial.com, with proceeds to benefit The Trevor Project, an organization focusing on crisis intervention for gay and questioning youth. I appreciate 'Idol' bringing back former Idols and hope they continue to do so.

And because I feel like a cigarette butt for saying negative things about Adam, here's an avi file of the performance and interview cut from the file that was posted a few pages ago of the entire episode.
