Before his performance, Adam Lambert was voted one of the best dressed men on the carpet at the American Music Awards. Closing Sunday's award show, Lambert performed his new single "For Your Entertainment". Following performances such as those of Lady Gaga, Eminem, and Rihanna, Lambert took the reigns of the last five minutes of the televised show and ran with them.

With a group of backup dancers clad to patronize an opium den versus attend the American Music Awards, Lambert fearlessly danced and sang, even tumbling and turning it into just another part of the show. Opening the performance itself by dragging a female dancer across the stage by one leg and pulling two other males by makeshift leashes, the first minute proved to be a precursor to exactly what Adam Lambert could do, and the entertainment he provided was second to none.

Sure to keep the tabloids talking by gyrating in one dancer's face and making out with his band's keyboardist, Lambert is obviously having fun with fame, and will not be going anywhere anytime soon.

Adam Lambert's debut album, "For Your Entertainment", will be available in stores and on iTunes on Monday, November 23rd.

    I would have enjoyed it more if he had supported his singing more and not been so busy with the choreographing that it was more rehersal style singing than having the energy to spare for real singing. I love him but it was flat & pitchy.
