Sometimes, requests are made of me here at VH1 that are nearly impossible to grant. One such request was made a couple of weeks ago, when I attended a super-exclusive taping of the premiere of VH1s Unplugged, the award-winning music series that is returning with eight all new episodes for VH1, MTV and CMT. The performer? None other than Adam Lambert, our most beloved American Idol contestant ever, who had not only planted his sparkle-seed in our earholes from the moment he opened his 24K-gold lips, but had also managed to stick a feather-cork in our heartholes following our two interviews together. (You can see those here and here.)
Finding out that Adam would be kicking off Unplugged was huge. Finding out that I would be the only member of the press allowed inside was unprecedented. But learning that I had to wait a little while before I’d be able to talk or blog about the concert was, simply put, torture. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks dabbing my forehead with a white hanky Al Sharpton style with anticipation…
And the better news? I CAN FINALLY TALK ABOUT IT. Stay tuned next week for my exclusive recap of VH1s Unplugged: Adam Lambert, featuring fan reactions, recaps of the songs, hilarious behind-the-scenes tidbits, and an interview with the man himself, where we talk about the hard hitting issues. Mainly… hummus. You won’t wanna miss it.
Check BWE.tv next week for our exclusive recap and more photos from the concert… And again on March 10 for footage of the performance!
Unplugged has been made possible by Starburst, who joins the line-up as the exclusive partner for the upcoming season of Unplugged. Do like I did in middle school, high school and today and eat some. (That’s my own official Starburst tagline, by the way.)
