Cyndi Lauper and Adam Lambert are set to record a duet of "Mad World."
The pair previously collaborated on a live version of the Tears for Fears track in aid of Cyndi's charities, and were so pleased with the results they want to cut a studio version. "Adam and Cyndi talked after their performance. They want to record their duet of 'Mad World' at the studio and release it. It's just a project they want to do for fun," a source said.
Adam Lambert wants to make an album with Queen.
The former American Idol contestant has been singing with the group live in place of the late Freddie Mercury this summer, and is keen to record new material with original members Brian May and Roger Taylor.
When asked by UK radio station Capital FM if he would make a record with the group, he said, "Yeah, I mean, I would love to work with them in any capacity in the future. I don't think I would turn any offer down. I mean, they're amazing! I don't know what it would be, but hey!"
Original Queen singer Freddie passed away in November 1991, and bass player John Deacon retired in 1997, but the band have continued, performing with singer Paul Rodgers between 2004 and 2009 and more recently Adam, after they played backing him in the final of American Idol in 2009.
Queen says Adam Lambert will be a "great Interpreter" of Freddie Mercury's songs at Sonisphere.
The "We Will Rock You" group confirmed on Monday they will headline the rock festival in July, with former American Idol contestant Adam taking the place of late frontman Freddie - who passed away in 1991 - and guitarist Brian May is sure he can step up to the challenge.
"I think all the vibes will be good. And I'm, sure that if Freddie was around, or if he is around then he'll appreciate what we're doing, because its interpreting those songs and those songs should live. A lot of those songs are Freddie's and you've got a great interpreter there in Adam. It will be challenging - my God, it will be challenging, but you've got to set yourself big hurdles to get over really, that's what life is about," he told BANG Showbiz, speaking at Tuesday night's BRIT Awards.
Queen have previously performed with Adam on the final of American Idol in 2009, and again last year at the MTV European Music Awards, where they received the Global Icon trophy. This summer's show is bound to be poignant as Queen played their last ever show with Freddie in 1986 at the same ground in Knebworth as Sonisphere takes place.
Adam Lambert may have been the one who recorded “Whataya Want From Me,” but that doesn’t mean he’s the only person who can perform it.
Although Pink - the tune’s songwriter - claims Lambert can “sing it way better” than her, I’m not sure I actually agree.
After listening to her cover the track during her European tour, let us know what you think. Should Pink have just kept the song for herself?

Season 8’s runner-up will appear on the FOX show next Tuesday, April 13 to offer a few words of advice for each contestant. While it’s not yet known which genre he’ll be contributing to, Lambert should be able to at least provide some hints as to what the judges are looking for.

At some point, all American Idol contestants are expected to return to the show that made them famous—and Adam Lambert is no exception.
Late last week, Season 8’s runner-up confirmed he will be appearing on the show sometime this season. His announcement came a day after both Allison Iraheta and Kris Allen performed during the first results show.
“Yes, I have been booked on Idol! Can’t reveal the date yet but it’s a ways off… So excited. Kris and Allison were awesome last night,” Adam wrote on Twitter.
Until then, Lambert also has a gig during Jay Leno’s first week back as Tonight Show host. You can see him on NBC this Tuesday, March 2.

Given Adam Lambert’s performance during Sunday’s American Music Awards, I must say I was a bit surprised by this new clip.
Although he had over three minutes to “interpret the lyrics” of his own song in his own video, this video for “For Your Entertainment” was surprisingly tame. Oh sure - you couldquickly
glimpse a few provocative moments here and there, but it they weren’t as obvious as this weekend’s simulated oral sex moment.
So now I’m left confused. Why would Lambert hold back here? Was Adam simply doing on live TV what he wasn’t allowed to do in the video?
Adam Lambert may have lost out to Kris Allen, but he’ll somehow find the way to survive 2012.
In “Time for Miracles,” a song from the upcoming disaster movie, the American Idol finalist reminds us that there’s never a wrong time to sing a power ballad. In fact, you should let one out before the rest of the world comes crashing down on you.
The film’s soundtrack is just one of two CDs Adam’s name will be attached to next month. For Your Entertainment, a solo album that will include a track written by Lady Gaga, will debut on November 23.
