American Idol Adam Lambert's Jay Leno Musical Mystery

Feb. 27, 2010

By Joshua Molina,

American Idol Adam Lambert will perform on television for the 10th million time next week.

What should Adam Lambert sing when he appears on "The Tonight Show" next Tuesday, March 2?

The man who made the American Music Awards must-see TV with his burlesque show will continue his phenomenal run of live television performances since debuting on American Idol last season, when he joins Jay Leno for the return of the late-night show.

With performances on "Oprah," "Ellen (twice)," ABC's American Music Awards, "The Tonight Show," with Conan O'Brien, "The Late Show," with David Letterman, "The View," CBS' "The Early Show," Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance," NBC's failed "The Jay Leno Show," and four months of weekly performances on "American Idol" last season, Lambert has built up an impressive streak of live television shows.

What will the music industry's leading man sing? It's unpredictable. Lambert has already sung nearly half of the songs from his album on live TV. Rumors are that he will sing "Music Again," on the show. Or will it be "If I Had You," his newest single? Or maybe it will be "Whataya Want From Me," co-written by Pink, which is still rising the Billboard charts. Or perhaps it will be "Fever," co-written by music's leading woman, Lady Gaga? Or will it be "A Loaded Smile," written by 4 Non Blondes empress Linda Perry?

Or maybe he will sing the best song on the album, the poignant "Aftermath"?

Untill next Tuesday, here's a short list of some of Lambert's live performances since he left American Idol.
