Like many of us, Adam went to see Les Miserables over the holidays — but he was not impressed. The singer took to Twitter to slam the film, claiming the performances ‘suffered massively.’
Adam Lambert, 30, certainly isn’t afraid to speak his mind. After watching Les Miserables, the American Idol alum wrote a long series of tweets criticizing the film and bashing the singers’ performances.
On Dec. 30, Adam tweeted, “Les Mis: Visually impressive w great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers.”
Instead of being pre-recorded, all of the singing in the film was performed live. While Adam agreed it was a cool idea, he didn’t like the way it turned out.
“And I do think it was cool they were singing live- but with that cast, they should have studio recorded and sweetened the vocals,” he wrote.
He continued to slam the actors’ talents by adding, “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?”
Adam claimed that the poor performances took away from the actual film.
“I felt like I should ignore the vocals and focus on the emotional subtext- but the singing was so distracting at times it pulled me out,” he tweeted.
After going on a nine tweet-long rant, the singer tried to justify his harsh ramblings:
“Look-I grew up w this musical and so my expectations are quite high. Didn’t mean to b negative.”
