Russell Crowe responds to Adam Lambert ‘Les Miserables’ Critique
Russell Crowe = Class. Adam Lambert = Hmmm…
I’m still not watching the movie. Russell’s singing was horrible.

Got Something to Add?
My comment aboout the film, is I wish there was more talking in between each singing narrative. Wonderful film and beautiful score.
No Adam-hater here either. He did musical theatre for 8 + years before AI. Must be his general attitude with people holding him back. I agree, he is NOT a rock singer, which is what HE is pretending to be. Funny he accused the actors of pretending to be singers. Maybe it's all wrapped around that mental state.
He did remakes on AI to his own accord and usually came off splendidly. In the studio with new material it has not been anywhere near the level he peaked at on AI. He must be cognizant of this since he hasn't toured the US since the release of his second album nearly a year ago. (I loved his Ring of Fire) Little since.
"Russell Crowe = Class" - really? your standards are low. Adam definitely has a much better knowledge of musical theatre and his opinion is far more informed than some. Although he fronts an ageing rock band Russell would the first to admit that his voice isn't up to scrutiny in such performances, as he has shown by not disagreeing with Adam. Just as an aside - Adam did not "slam" the cast, he said he found some of the singing distracting from the movie and some of it really good. When are we going to get some balance re Adam on this site?
@Mikhail XO I have both his albums and enjoy them but I, too, would love to hear him sing something with more power. I'd love to hear him sing some show tunes and some Jim Steinman (old fashioned though he may be) - maybe Adam will make it back to his roots as he gets older - he is too good for pop music.
@amandanoa very tacky
