Adam Lambert Debuts New Song, New Look at Life Ball

By Lyndsey Parker | Reality Rocks  

"Adam Lambert at the 2013 Life BallSaturday night in Vienna, Austria, Glamerican Idol Adam Lambert performed at the Life Ball — Europe's biggest fundraiser for HIV and AIDS causes — rocking not just a new song, but an exotic new look.

Adam's Ali Baba-inspired, over-the-top opening performance (for such illustrious spectators as Bill Clinton and Elton John) featured a troupe of 40 shirtless dancing thieves. But of course Adam was the one who really stole the show, taking the Hofburg Palace stage resplendent in a brocade, genie-style outfit and matching jeweled turban.

[Is Adam granting me three wishes here? Okay then, here goes, Adam: 1) Please be the next "American Idol" judge, 2) Please put out a new album within the next year, 3) Please sell sequined turbans at the merch booth on your next tour.]

Perhaps more exciting than Adam's sparkling ensemble was the fact that he sang a sparkling new song, "Love Wins Over Glamour," written especially for the Life Ball event, which had a "1001 Nights" theme this year. The title was ironic, considering how lavishly glamorous this concert was, but the song's universal message came through loud and clear. The song was written by the Beat4Feet Music production team of Martin Gellner and Werner Stranka, with lyrics by Martin, Werner, and Adam."

Fergie to Host Voguing Balls for AIDS Research

Strike a pose! Fergie is watching.
The expectant mother, singer, and actress announced Friday that she'll be hosting a series of balls celebrating voguing.
The exaggerated form of dance, once described by writer Fran Lebowitz as "institutionalized showing off," came to prominence thanks to the 1991 documentary "Paris Is Burning" and, naturally, Madonna.
"From the first time I saw the documentary 'Paris is Burning' to the classic Madonna song 'Vogue,' ... I've been inspired by the voguing culture,” Fergie, who has tapped experienced voguers for BEP shows, said in a statement.
Fergie's effort will see her recruit top dancers from across the country to host fundraising events for prominent AIDS research group amFAR.
This will culminate in Vienna on May 25 for the organization's annual Life Ball.Mrs. Josh Duhamel also intends to make her own documentary about the events and the evolution of voguing culture.
No word on if the "Nine" star will be busting out any moves of her own: Her first little one is due this summer, and could feasibly still be in the oven as mom rolls out the choreographed charity work.
