Christina Aguilera’s “Just A Fool” Was First Recorded By Adam Lambert: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: In a recent interview with Music Week, British songwriter Steve Robson talked about co-writing Christina Aguilera‘s duet with Blake Shelton, “Just A Fool.” Robson revealed that the song was initially pitched to Pink, but then Adam Lambert recorded a version. Lambert’s version was scrapped from his album “at the last minute,” before making its way over to Xtina. Oh, to hear that Lambo take! [Music Week]

:: Ratings for the season 12 premiere of American Idol were down 19% from last season’s debut (the second night of the premiere usually tallies even lower numbers). 17.81 million people tuned in, compared to 21.9 million last year. That said, the low-for-Idol ratings still crushed every episode of The Voice. [Billboard]

:: Wiz Khalifa and mother-to-be Amber Rose maybe got secretly married. Either that, or Amber just had a simple slip of the tongue when she referred to Wiz as “my husband” when talking to some TMZ street badger. [Pink is the New Blog]

:: The ever-unpredictable Lupe Fiasco has canceled this year’s release of Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 2. Instead, he says he as a completely different album in the works for this year. [Complex]

:: John Mayer sang on January 16 for the first time since having surgery on his vocal cords in August. He performed at a benefit for firefighters in Montana who helped save his home from a fire last year. [WENN]

    Too bad XTina and Lambert didn’t do the duet. Shelton’s voice is weak as is Levine. XTina and Lambert doing a song together would blow your sound system out the door.

    I wanna hear ADAM’S version of Just A Fool, someone leak it please :D

  • Theresa Dailey

    I feel the same way … someone please find ADAM’s version. With or without a duet … I’m sure ADAM’s is SUPERB!!


  • Dakota

    Too bad Adam pretty much slammed the door on releasing any of songs he recorded by discarded for TRESPASSING. Oh well, can only hope some horrible person (haha) finds it and leaks it. Usually that’s a bad thing, but anything Adam sings is probably going to be incredible.

  • Davion

    Proof again, Adams handlers have been giving him some bad advice. The best of his songs do not make the cut, and that is a tragic. This would have been a wonderful release for Adam, are you listening Adam.

  • Ovation Impact

    Adam is such a perfectionist as to why he dropped it from the official CD… but no matter what Adam sings i want/need to add it to my playlist. CIA NinjaGlamberts know your on this hunt!

    I love Just a Fool and know Adam’s version would have been perfect. However, Xtina’s version isn’t on the radio and we all know radio won’t touch any of Adam’s music.
    I am curious to know what direction the third cd will take. We’ve had Glam and pop. I’d like to see him completely break the mold for the third one. His “divorce” from 19 should give him more freedom (and a bigger share of the profits).
