Adam Lambert responds to critics on CBS' 'Early Show' today

Without ever watching an American Idol episode or having heard Adam Lambert sing, I think I may be a fan after this week alone. His bold and brash performance on the American Music Awards this past Sunday is already legendary. For a new artist with no substantial cred behind him, to shake things up like that is pretty amazing. The new kid on the block is already getting canceled because of that one gig.

This morning on the Early Show, he’s gives this well-spoken response to being criticized for his performance that night. He handled it like a seasoned pro without ever apologizing.

You go, boy!
