Adam Lambert Slams Les Miserables: ” Why Not Cast Actors Who Could Actually Sound Good?”
American Idol Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert has been subject to harsh critiques once or twice, but now it would appear he's the one doing the judging. After seeing Les Miserables on the big screen, Glambert had some harsh words about the film's casting and took to Twitter to complain.
"Les Mis: Visually impressive with great emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers," Adam tweeted.
He did go on to praise some standout performances in the film, including Anne Hathaway, Sascha Baron Cohen, and Helena Bonham Carter. No love for Hugh Jackman and the rest of the main cast, though: "The industry will say "these actors were so brave to attempt singing this score live, but why not cast actors who could actually sound good?" Ouch, Glambert! With critiques that harsh, we're thinking he'd hold his own on the other side of that American Idol judge's table.
