The 'American Idol' alum, dressed as Ali Baba, performs the song written exclusively for the Arabian Nights-themed event.
Flamboyant rocker Adam Lambert can be counted on to bring on the glamour to any event and he surely did not disappoint when he performed new song "Love Wins Over Glamour" at the 2013 Life Ball charity gala in Vienna, Austria on Saturday, May 25. The 31-year-old entertainer added more glam and glitter to the already fabulous and star-studded HIV/AIDS fundraiser.
Dressed as a fashionable version of Ali Baba, Lambert debuted the song written exclusively for the Arabian Nights-themed extravaganza complete with a slew of half-naked male dancers as the 40 thieves who backed-up the "Idol" alum's performance of the up-tempo tune. The "Trespassing" artist, in a bedazzled turncoat and turban ensemble, strutted on the Hofburg Palace catwalk stage, before finally yelling "Open Sesame!", commanding the curtains to be drawn, revealing sexy female dancers.
As he sang the words, "Pots of gold won't do, little brother/ if you don't share your love with one another/ Flash don't matter, love wins over glamour," Lambert clearly sent out the message of the annual charity event thru the lyrics he co-wrote himself with the Beat4Feet Music production team. With an "American Idol" hosting gig looming in the horizon for the season eight runner-up, fans of the glam-rock singer can get to hear more out of their idol.
Hosting the event was the Black Eyed Peas' Fergie a.k.a. Stacy Ferguson, who wore a Tom Ford gown over her pregnant-with-first-child body as she bumped onto the stylish, Vivienne Westwood dress-wearing Kelly Osbourne on the red carpet before the gala started. The fundraiser was made even more glamorous by the inclusion of a fashion show by renowned designer Roberto Cavalli.
