Adam Lambert, shiny and fab for Gridlock 2009 -- with a flashback to his Upright Cabaret gig on New Year's Eve 2008
Adam, done up all "shiny and fabulous," sang 10 songs from his new album -- the first time, he says, they did so many tunes from "For Your Entertainment." The finale? Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love," which was a crowd pleaser when he was on "American Idol."
What a difference a year makes? Lambert revealed, according to the L.A. Times review, that on New Year's Eve 2008 he had also performed -- as part of a cabaret just down the road on La Cienega Boulevard. (Check out that video, embedded after the jump.)
"I sang at midnight like I'm doing tonight," he reminisced. "Only there's a couple more people at this venue."

Above, you'll see and hear Adam coming out of "Strut" and leading into "Sure Fire Winners." YouTube user scottyyjames has another clip up on the site (We couldn't embed it -- Adam, child, you got a mouth on you!) and he's not the only one.
After the jump, and after the video of Adam's New Year's Eve 2008 gig, and if you're not exhausted, well -- check out his multiple-microphones-in-the-face interview from before the Gridlock show.
