Adam Lambert’s single on the 2012 soundtrack has been a long awaited moment for the music industry and Lambert-aholics throughout the world. Well the wait is no longer necessary. According to officials, Lambert’s song “Time for Miracles,” which is featured on the apocalyptic film 2012 has been leaked.

This may be a bitter sweet moment for the rocker. On the one hand he is finally giving what millions have been waiting for; it’s been so long since his debut on American Idol. On the other hand, the premature release has brought about an array of opinions on the new single.

To many, Lamberts high-powered vocals and rock mentality is not reflected in the song. The notion is that the highly anticipated song presents a dumbed down version of the rocker’s capability.

Since the leak on the web there have been many posts, videos, and millions of reactions to the single from the film. The complaints seem to be that the song is too similar to a previously released single from the film Armageddon, “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.” Despite the complaints the fans still remain in Lambert’s corner, and they have no doubt that he will still be the shining star they expect him to become.

The leak is an unfortunate incident for Lambert, bringing on the tough scrutiny that comes with his level of fame. The tumultuous season of American Idol that ended in Lamberts defeat has made millions expect a mind shattering, life altering song from Lambert. However, we need to realize that Lambert is coming into his own and is finding who he is much like all of us.

Singers continually discover themselves and their artistic souls. Rather than saying the song wasn’t what we expected, we should realize that it is one of the many transgressions of Lambert’s discovery.

San Diego will always support Lambert’s endeavors and be behind him one-hundred percent of the time. Our city is special and we need to support all those that come from it with full love and embrace.

The leak of Lambert’s song is just the beginning of his career and we can be sure that he will fulfill all the expectations we have set for him. At the same time we need to also realize that maybe our expectations are too high, after all he is human. In the meantime we can expect a solo album from Lambert titled “For Your Entertainment” to be released on Nov. 23.

    Lambert is spectacular considering the type of song it is. Its also huge exposure for him to people who have not heard him before. It cracks me up that critics expect every song he is going to put out to be everything to everybody. He is going to present us with a range of styles and has specifically stated he doesn’t want to be labeled or pidgeonholed (something this blogs author is attempting). Thank goodness…each style isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea but his otherworldly vocals will be the constant.

    I don’t know where you are coming from since fans are loving ADAM’s first tune with ADAM not only meeting the highest expectations but even exceeding them. ADAM’s rendition of TFM is absolutely stunning and hauntingly beautiful and only ADAM can do justice to that song especially being compared to the smash hit I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing superbly executed by Steven Tyler. And as a devoted fan, I am very proud of what ADAM has accomplisched. I can’t be any happier as to how ADAM is conquering the music industry and being catapulted into the world stage with all the hype and fanfare via this blockbuster movie.

    I don’t get the negative tone of this blog at all. While the author is obviously in support of Adam, he seems to be overlooking the fact that this is NOT his first single. Adam has stated this fact in multiple interviews, saying that while he thinks the song is beautiful and he’s really happy with how it turned out, it is really nothing like the music he is creating for “For Your Entertainment.” It was such an incredible honor for Adam to have been asked to sing the feature song for one of the biggest budget disaster movies of all time working with one of the music industry’s most respected producers, and, if I were a writer for one of Adam’s hometown publications, that is the angle I’d have taken. I would have applauded him for being SOOOO talented that these major movie producers thought this new-kid-on-the-block could actually be an asset to them in terms of selling movie tickets.

    All that aside, I actually really love “Time for Miracles.” I think it’s beautiful, and in it, Adam has the opportunity to show off a full range of vocals from soft and tender to bombastic and soaring. Since the song’s release, I think MOST of his fans really like the song and, even if they don’t, they know it’s just a bonus release because of the amazing opportunity and honor Adam was given. Also, while the song has received some negative press, several of the bigger, most influential publications have been very positive. It received favorable press from MTV and VH1, Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone, with the latter placing “Time for Miracles” as their #1 Editor’s Pick for the week. Soon after its release, it soared up the I-Tunes charts to #9, where it remained for well over a day, and has only slowly descended to a current #25, where it’s been hanging out for the past day — all this occurring prior to the video debut in the Michael Jackson documentary This Is It or ever being heard in a theater.

    Anyway, I can appreciate that everyone has his/her own tastes, but I do wonder what the author of this article thinks Adam was supposed to do when bestowed this incredible honor of singing a song for a major motion picture. As someone brand new to the industry, he would have looked like a complete fool to turn this opportunity down. Had he done so, we wouldn’t have just a few nay-sayers and doom and gloomers out there regarding fears about the direction Adam will be taking his astounding talents; Instead, we’d have multitudinous articles calling him all kinds of names from diva to foolish. Adam made the right choice in taking this job, he made the absolute most of what he was given to sing, he’s being given lots of added press and exposure due to the opportunity, and he STILL HAS A SINGLE COMING OUT V ERY SOON that will be more representative of his artistic abilities.
