Adam Lambert was in town this weekend warming up for his 2012 VH1 Diva hosting duties with an appearance at the Home For The Holidays benefit at New York City’s Beacon Theater, where he was joined for a duet by none less than Cyndi Lauper. “I can’t believe she asked me to do this! This is amazing,” he gushed, welcoming his idol to the stage for a very special rendition of Tears for Fears oft covered “Mad World.” Adam took the first eerie verse and Lauper took the next, and of course they each sounded their best, but we began to wonder why these two firecrackers chose such a moody and haunted song to duet on. But then they harmonized (and held hands!) for a particularly powerful final act, lending it plenty of emotion and there it was: the glam. Not blown out, but just enough to really make the song theirs and to make sure Glamberts were left with nothing to mad about.
