AceShowbiz - As the world continued to mourn the death of David Bowie, Adam Lambert honored him by making the crowd dance at his recent concert in Japan. Taking the stage in Osaka on Monday night, January 11, the 33-year-old singer covered "Let's Dance" as a tribute to the British musician who passed away the day before.
"I loved him so much," he told the audience before launching into the song. During the song, the "American Idol" alum also showed off some dance moves in a sparkling jacket over a black top paired with camouflage pants.
Bowie died over the weekend just days after putting out his "Blackstar" album on his 69th birthday. Prior to covering "Let's Dance", Lambert paid tribute to him in a tweet that simply read, "RIP Bowie."

Later, he opened up about how Bowie inspired him and other artists in an interview with Billboard. "Foremost is the music, but the first thing that I saw as a spectator was how he looked and his image and his styling and his concepts that he pushed forward that were so out of the box and so forward-thinking," he said.
"I loved how he challenged people as far as what he thought of how gender was represented. I love that he borrowed from the mime culture in some of his early stuff and how he reinvented himself decade by decade. I think he really inspired a lot of pop artists that way," he continued.
Lambert added of Bowie's final album, "It is really beautiful. I think he knew that he was sick and kind of timed it to be a sort of farewell to his fans, and I think that is so beautiful that he treated his departure like a work of art. That's fantastic, and it's so him."
