It sounds like Adam Lambert will be making his big screen debut this November. But don't worry, "Idol" fans. It won't be another "From Justin to Kelly" catastrophe (although I imagine there's a small contingent of "Idol" freaks who would kill to see a musical romance between Kris Allen and Adam Lambert). Nope, instead this disaster will be of the Roland Emmerich-fueled sci-fi kind, meaning lots of stuff will get blown up.

After weeks of speculation and coy remarks to the press, it has been confirmed by legendary Queen guitarist Brian May that Adam Lambert has recorded a song for the upcoming Emmerich opus "2012." In a blog post dated Friday, August 14th, Mr. May gushed like a total fan-girl over the track, which he heard while hanging with producer Rob Cavallo. Read his comments (in a British accent, for full effect) below:

"I have to say I was completely blown away ... it's truly sensational. In fact it's so obviously a number one smash, any bookie would be mad to take bets on it. I am not kidding. I'm not easily moved to jelly by male vocalists ... but Adam's voice reaches out with sensitivity, depth, maturity, and awesome range and power which will make jaws drop all around the world. Its an awesome performance. No doubt about it. The world of Rock has a bright new star."

You think he liked it? Seriously, I haven't seen someone freak over an "Idol" like that since ... well, since I interviewed Kris Allen last week.

So here's what we know: The song was produced by Cavallo, whose name you know from working with David Cook, Green Day, My Chemical Romance and — randomly — Paris Hilton. Meat Loaf's drummer John Miceli was involved in some capacity. We assume the tune will be rolling over the end credits after (potential spoiler alert!) John Cusack and his band of misfits probably save the world, and ... that's about all we know.

But rest easy, Glamberts! We are working overtime to get as many details as possible over the highly-anticipated tune. What's it called? Will it also be on his major-label debut album this fall? Will it be "Rock Gawd" Lambert or "Gentle Jeff Buckley Balladeer" Lambert? And how badly does Brian May want Lambert to be in Queen? We're making as many phone calls as humanly possible to get to the bottom of this. So stay tuned...

I'm all for Adam Lambert making it and delivering some great tunes to us, but what's happening in this world that the guy is overrated before he even has the chance to be rated at all? Starting off with such high expectations, what artist can nowadays possibly live up to people's ever-increasing demands spurred by the music industry?  

Let's wait. I hope the song is really great. I really do.
 
I wish this guy a whole lot of luck. He seems to be a very good singer, but he still has a long way to go before earning all the praise he's been accorded. 

He'll have to live up to standards people are artificially setting up for him before he even leaves his own mark. 

It's not his fault, I just hope that he can cope with that and turn out to be a great singer. I'm always looking forward to listening to great singers, so there's hope he'll be among those I listen to more often.
 
And Ben Harper is covering Under Pressure. The voice of this guy turns even a rock into jelly, and he's such a wonderful musician respected by fans, non-fans and reviewers alike for his talent, and it's as if his hommage to Queen and Freddie didn't exist. That's quite sad. : -(  So here's a very good talent who has already proven himself and has just released yet another great album, has made wonderful collaborations with Pearl Jam and other artists, has gone through many different styles, but no word from the Queen world about it. 

Adam, whom I wish all the luck, didn't even have the chance of releasing the tune and is already regarded as a phenomenon. I hope he turns out to be one, but in due time!!! 

People put so much pressure on these new artists - it's sometimes too much. No one expects much from me, and I feel pressured already (hehe), I can't imagine what these people go through. Adam is under pressure, that's for sure!

I agree with you about Adam. He certainly is under pressure. He does seem to have a pretty good head on his shoulders but there are many things coming at him right now. I hope he can stand up to the whirlwind.
