For the first “American Idol” results show of the finalists, Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert was on hand to perform. He did a stripped down version of “Aftermath,” a song off his “For Your Entertainment” debut album.
In addition to this acoustic version on “Idol,” Lambert has released a new “Billboard REmix” of “Aftermath.” Part of the proceeds from the sales of the remix version will go to benefit The Trevor Project, an organization that provides support to LGBT youth, so that’s awesome. We think this new version of the song is pretty awesome too, but we prefer the acoustic version. The remix version will be available to download once the show is over at Adam’s website.
In addition to that great performance, afterward Ryan Seacrest says he does The Dougie to the fast, dance club version, then when Glambert doesn’t know what The Dougie is, J.Lo offers to teach it to him. Now that’s something we want to see.
