It's Time For A Miracle, Adam Lambert!

Well, after the premiere of Adam Lambert's "Time For Miracles" vid last week—which initially propelled the single to #9 on the iTunes daily downloads chart—the dirge has flizz-opped down to #49 a mere five days later.

Crikey! Has 2012 arrived already and rained down biblical doom upon poor Adam's pop career so soon? Maybe it's just God's will.

Look, it's not that I have anything against Adam. Though, after being told to "die in a fire you insufferable prick" and that "by not supporting Adam, you're a traitor to gays" by several Lamb-tards over the past few months, you'd think I ought to.

I just want the 17 people in charge of the American Idol runner-up's career this month to make better choices for him. After all you don't want him to end up dropped and rooming with Bo Bice in a Tarzana studio apartment, huffing Ajax all day while playing "Time For Miracles" on a continuous loop as the credit card companies keep calling endlessly to make Idol threats into the voicemail that's about to be disconnected—now do you?

The days of a huge blockbuster flick starring Kevin Costner Nicolas Cage Bruce Willis John Cusack producing a hit Diane Warren-esque ballad went down like Monica Lewinsky about 11 years ago.

Adam needs to go about etching out his hit-song career the tried-and-true way: By leaking a sex tape.

    Time For Miracles isn't a single so I'm not surprised that it's not charting well, I think it's more of a "buzz" track. I have heard that his real first single is something a bit more fun, which is promising since "disaster movie ballad" is literally my least favorite kind of song.

    Don't get too excited about it. Adam was just hired to sing the theme song for 2012. His debut single from his debut album is coming out in a week and he will be performing it at the American Music Awards in November. He is also on the cover of the November issue of Details magazine (GQ) and will be featured in Oprah this week. And the AI tour just ended a month ago.

    Firstly, just to correct the two posts on here. Time for Miracles is a single and the song will be on his album as well as on the 2012 soundtrack album.

    However, just to correct the clueless blogger who really should check his facts before letting his fingers run riot over his keyboard, the song has not even been released to radio for airplay or the video released to music channels because it wasn't actually supposed to premier until tomorrow as part of the prelude to the premier of This is It. However Italian itunes accidentally released it for sale as soon as they received it and a couple of other European itunes followed on seeing this. Therefore US and Canadian itunes released it too and the video the day, without fanfare or promo, to limit the likelihood of illegal downloads that were already appearing left, right and centre as soon as it was released on Italian itunes.

    Time for Miracles has sold what it has sold so far due to word of mouth. He should worry! He could be Kris Allen whose airplayed single only scraped the top 30 in itunes before quickly plummeting to 129.

    Well, AI rigged the show so Adam would lose, so I wouldn't be surprised if they're hoping to sink him so the straight star, Kris, can rise.

    Um... you didn't even give a critique of the song.

    D'luv - check your facts before you right a blog and make a fool of yourself.

    Kuntzpiracy - yes, that would be why the record company has spent several times more money on Adam's album than Kris's, despite Kris being the winner, because they want to sink Adam. Adam's album had five times as many pre-orders as Kris's at the last count and Kris's single reached the lofty heights of #27. Kris was not the winner they wanted and they are more than happy to see him disappearing without any effort on their part.

    AI didn't fix it for Adam to lose. Friends and relatives in Arkansas studied how a small population had pulled off a shock result in a UK talent show and used it as a model to organise a voting campaign with military precision.

    Oh, Anonymous, so young, so innocent, so willing to believe in your pop heroes (or, in La Lambert's case) heroines.

    We were all there once, dear. Then we hit puberty. Log back on to the Internet after you wash off the Edward Cullen body glitter, get home from your first rainbow party and graduate fourth grade.

    I wanted to comment, but I'm afraid that I will only seem like another blind member of the Adamaniacs.

    Lovin' how the Lambert fans are in utter denial that this is a single. Let's see: Single on iTunes, video shot to promote it.

    But this pretzel logic takes the cake: "Friends and relatives in Arkansas studied how a small population had pulled off a shock result in a UK talent show and used it as a model to organise a voting campaign with military precision."

    That actually made me spit out half my Pumpkintini.

    Vibin' To Duchovny and John, you're my heroes, as always.

    Oh Sweetie,

    Were you really having a pumpkintini? Sounds like you should have been spitting it out anyway.

    Lovingly,

    I'm an Adam fan so I'm one of those people that hopes he does well. I have to say I wasn't thrilled about his soundtrack single for "2012," but after listening to most of his new album, I have to say I liked "It's Time For A Miracle," the best, because that's the one song from the entire album where the song revolves around his voice and besides showing his great range, we get to hear his strong vibrato. The other songs on the album, were for me, disappointing. All that techno sound, with out a authentic instrument or musician to be found, even poor Adam, at times, sounds like a computer. Still wish him the best.
