Adam lambert duracell After a Band-Aid appearance on "The View," Adam Lambert appears to be slowly recovering from his AMA crotch-thrusting debacle.

Over the weekend, Glammy hit Z100's Jingle Ball, where he shook hands and scored holiday gifts at On 3 Production's H&M Artist Gift Lounge backstage at New York's Madison Square Garden.

In good spirits, Adam joked about his strict diet while grabbing a fistful of Nerds at the Wonka candy station, where he scored a Wonka purple card -- that bad boy entitles him to a year's worth of his favorite sweets. The crooner in the guyliner also scored a $500 H&M gift card and Moroccanoil hair products (which he said he keeps in his bag at all times in case of 'do emergencies).

Other stars scoring goods -- including Verizon's Google-powered gadget Droid, Spin Master Liv fashion dolls and Hasbro Family Game Night packs -- included singer Ke$ha, Justin Bieber, Jordin SparksKris Allen and "30 Rock" stars Katrina Bowden and Judah Friedlander, plus breakout pop singer Kristine Elezaj
