After a day’s delay, VH1 finally rolled out their highly anticipated Unplugged performances with musical firecracker Adam Lambert.
Stripping songs from his debut album, For Your Entertainment, down to the basics, the true beauty of Adam’s voice was able to take centerstage. The rockin’ ballad “Whataya Want From Me” was drenched with vulnerability; “Music Again” was a funky delight; his signature “Mad World” cover was even more haunting; and “Down The Rabbit Hole” was extremely joyous pop fair.
But it was the simply breathtaking “Broken Open” that stole the show completely. You’d have to be completely soulless not to feel the power of the song or be moved (understandably to tears) by the delicate sensitivity in which Adam sang it.
Aside from providing what should be deemed a vocal tutorial for others to follow, Adam explained the inspiration behind choosing the songs he would perform, his love for Muse, and finding his “awesome” band.
