Adam Lambert visited his pal Ellen DeGeneres on January 26 to help her celebrate her 52nd birthday. The "American Idol" alum performed live with his band, delivering "Strut" which is written by him with the help from Kara DioGuardi and Greg Wells.

At the end of the performance, Adam handed a special signed picture of him to the talk show host to be auctioned for Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund. Moreover, the openly gay singer also gave a signed underwear which he claimed "a bit sweaty" to raise fund for the cause. The auction reportedly will end in the first week of February with the current bid price for the underwear is over 2,000 dollars.

In addition to Adam Lambert, Ellen DeGeneres also welcomed Harry Connick Jr. and Will Arnett as her guests on the Tuesday show. In a video montage prepared by her show's staff, she received birthday wishes from such celebrities as Jeff Bridges, Oprah Winfrey, Clint Eastwood, Paris Hilton, Justin Timberlake, Keith Urban and Queen Latifah.

Stop with the "openly gay singer" we say openly straight, openly bi, openly whatever about other performers? PLEASE...GIVE IT A REST! He is a singer and a fantastic singer at that. There...use that adjective..fantastic. Let's help you out with some other adjectives: versatile, sexy, beautiful, energetic, expansive range, out of this world, wildly entertaining, wildly inviting...if you need more adjectives, please call. And regarding the underwear donation. How cute was that? The look on his face. Ellen was clearly in on this. They both played it well. They both had fun with it. We should too! The a little sweaty comment was Adam being Adam...just a little naughty...a little bit of a tease. Love him! If only I had the money to have the highest bid!

@Elizabeth, Without a doubt,Ellen and Adam were in cahoots about the underwear. Do you actually think he just randomly decided to auction the undies off? It was listed on E-Bay - new,never worn - btw (along with the signed picture). Do your homework next time!! Your lack of humour is clouding your logic. Get a grip!!

adam is the sweetest most down to earth special guy. everyone in my house loves him my brother me and my mom is crazy about him, and the only pop star i've ever seen her crazy about was Michael Jackson may he RIP. we wish Adam a happy birthday and many more years of success and a good happy life. We love him so so much this performance was sexy and wild Adam never dissapoints and all those haters you people should stop wasting your time hating cause he's going to be here for a long time, he's a legend in the making he's private life has nothing to do with his music or personality. and always saying in the media open gay singer is not right yes he's gay but no need writing it in all the articles or saying it. do people say straight singer so why gay singer people should stop discriminating. adam we love you with all our hearts and hope to meet you someday. happy birthdAY.

Wonderful performance - great song! Adam looked GORGEOUS! I hope STRUT will be his next single - it's so energetic and danceable. But it's REALLY time to stop referring to Adam as "the openly gay singer!" He's a SINGER! Do you refer to Ellen as the openly gay talk show host??? No? Then STOP! A person's sexuality is NOT the definition of the person!

The openly stupid author of this piece just hasn't quite gotten that flaunting that "gay" word just isn't going to make a difference except to steer readers away from here. Grow up.

Wow! Great singing/performance by Adam for Ellen's birthday. Missed the show, knew I'd find it though, my guy is irresistible to the media too. Happy birthday Ellen. Adam's birthday is Friday. Aquarians.

Adam was fantastic and had a great time singing 'Strut". His fans are here, as are the jealous hateful foes-who also are obsessed with him. The signed Ellen underware are merely a pair Adam signed so relax, seems they are a different pair. both the rare Ellen item and Adam's autograph make them special enough.

Elizabeth get a life . I see Cookie fans are at it again.

Hmm..underwear. Not my thing, exactly. I guess if it's for a good cause, who cares, right? Two thousand dollars is a lot more than that signed picture would make and he knows it. I steer clear of drawers, but hey, whatever works.

Oh Elizabeth you typical tight conservative. You'd be amazed at what people buy, especially if it's a fan. How is Adam be found mocking Haiti's grief? He put out a PSA on getting people to help the people in Haiti. You call that mocking?? Geez, Elizabeth, you're the digusting one.

Adam was Fantastic on Ellen. Loved the song Strut...Wow! Don't understand why you have to preface Adam as "the openly gay' performer. He is a performer artist. Do you say 'openly heterosexual' performer??? Really..get over it.
posted by Elizabeth on Jan 27, 2010
How can this person mock all the grief in Haiti by flippantly mentioning underwear as something to auction for? He disgusts me.
