Adam Lambert Geeks Out Performing A Haunting “Mad World” With Cyndi Lauper: Watch

By: X. Alexander / December 10, 2012

Adam Lambert is one of the most sensational artists out there, yet when sharing the stage with one if his idols, he went all fanboy on her. “Look who I get to do a duet with! OMG!” Adam shared with the crowd at New York City’s Beacon Theater on Saturday (December 8) night, before Cyndi Lauper walked on stage and they belted out “Mad World.” “I can’t believe she asked me to do this! This is amazing!”

All the star power on stage melted away, however, once the eerie song (originally recorded by Tears For Fears and perhaps best known from Donnie Darko) began. Cyndi and Adam harmonized in a haunting way that quite literally gave us chills. Their performance was just one of many during Lauper’s all-star Home For The Holidays benefit in Manhattan for homeless LGBT youth.
