This should be an interesting show. In particular, I’m keen to know what Adam Lambert will be up to. He’s been super-busy, as of late, going from the final season of American Idol to new shows with Queen to a new solo album and tour, and then straight on to The X Factor Australia and FOX’s Rocky Horror Picture Show. I feel kind of exhausted just thinking about all the travel involved. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited for this.
