Adam Lambert Just Sang "The Muffin Man" Like Cher Again for a Very Royal Reason

He can truly sing anything! 

By Jackie Manno

Adam Lambert put a nursery-rhyme twist on a classic dance-pop tune during a recent concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London on June 5.

During Lambert's cover of Cher's smash hit "Believe" at the show, he shook things up when the chorus came around. Instead of singing the song's signature lyrics, "Do you believe in life after love?", Lambert switched the words to, "Do you know the Muffin Man? The Muffin Man that lives on Drury Lane?" while the surprised crowd chuckled and cheered.

"Sometimes you just have to give the people what they want. The Muffin Man, live from Royal Albert Hall 🎭 📹@josephsinclair," Lambert captioned the video. 

"Omg obsessed 🤣" The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon commented from its official Instagram page. 

This special remix of "Believe" was inspired by Lambert's now-viral performance from That's My Jam in April. During his "Wheel of Musical Impressions" game (which involved singing a classic song while doing an impersonation of a famous singer), Lambert was tasked with singing "The Muffin Man" in the style of...you guessed it, Cher. 

During his amazing impression, Lambert used a super accurate dark and throaty tone that resembled Cher's while he sang the melody of "Believe" with "The Muffin Man" lyrics. 

"How do you do that? How do you make that good?" Host Jimmy Fallon asked in awe when the segment concluded. 

As for Lambert's recent endeavors, he also did a show-stopping cover of Sia's "Chandelier" on the America's Got Talent: All-Stars finale this February, accompanying aerialist Aidan Bryant, who won the season.

The performance was a total full-circle moment because it reunited Lambert with Simon Cowell, who was a Judge during Lambert's career-launching American Idol days.

"That was amazing!" Cowell said after Lambert finished singing "Chandelier." "Adam, I have to say this. We've known each other a long time-"

"I'm having major déjà vu..." Lambert responded, giving a nod to his origins.

"But this time, I'm going to be nice," Cowell continued. "Because Adam, you are honestly one of the nicest people in show business. I'm so proud of everything you've achieved."
