It was another busy week in the life of Adam Lambert, as he arrived in Chicago to tape a segment for The Oprah Winfrey Show. Fans from near and far scrambled to submit their requests, via lottery, for a seat in Oprah's audience, and the chosen ones didn't waste a minute getting to Harpo Studios in time for the taping. 

Lambert taped his segment on Thursday, January 13th, which included a lengthy chat with the daytime queen of talk, along with a performance of his current single Whataya Want From Me?.  Some of the show's attendees revealed that  Lambert requested a second take on the song, since he wasn't happy with a note at the end of his performance. After working with the sound crew to make the necessary changes for a do-over, fans were treated to an encore .

Audience members were buzzing with excitement afterward, updating their Twitter accounts with info about the taping. One Chicago-based fan named Anett commented on Adam's demeanor towards the crowd "He was looking out at us in the audience a lot...and smiling.... was very friendly to the entire room!"

Lambert performed a second song from his CD For Your Entertainment called If I Had You, which will appear exclusively on Oprah's website, but reportedly will not be seen when the show airs January 19th.

While in town, A.L. dropped into local radio stations WTMX FM Chicago and KISS FM Chicago for brief interviews before heading back to Los Angeles.  His busy week continues in L.A. as he prepares for his appearance at the 15th Annual Critics Choice Awards on Friday night. He'll be presenting an award with comedienne Sarah Silverman during the show, which will air live on VH1 at 7:00 p.m. CST.

VH1 is also premiering the new video for Whataya Want From Me? on Friday morning, January 15th. This is Lambert's third video release in as many months, following Time For Miracles and For Your Entertainment.  In it, Lambert hits the mark by cleverly interpreting the song's lyrics from two vantage points, personally and professionally, with a message that could parallel his own new-found challenges with celebrity.  The video is beautifully filmed, and poignantly captures the essence of Lambert's soulful plight.

So when can we expect to see Adam Lambert back in Chicago? There are no plans as of yet, however fans are hoping to see him return in concert sometime this spring or summer. Until then, you can see him on The Oprah Winfrey Show January 19th, and in his new video for Whataya Want From Me?

See the new video below.

    Wow,what a wonderful article about Adam. The WWFM video is very captivating and it evokes strong emotions in me. I love to see Adam's vulnerable side just as much as the wild side. He is always sexy and gorgeous.
