It’s no secret we love Adam Lambert and the energy and joy he brings to the otherwise sterile, manufactured world of modern pop music. But he’s such a worldwide whirling dervish that it’s sometimes difficult to keep track of where and when he touches down. Hence our weekly feature Hump Day With Adam Lambert, which will hopefully keep us up-to-date with his appearances, performances, and interviews. And on those weeks when Adam’s talents lie dormant, we bring you classic pics and performances.
Adam is a Miami Sound Machine (page two). Let’s start with pics and tweets from his Twitter Account and Instagram

We agree, Adam
I love how celebrities are becoming more honest and open. »
With its ratings dropping faster than you can say Strictly, we suggest some new themed weeks to breathe life into ITV's ailing talent show
Is it us, or do The X Factor's themes sound like they're straight off a Yates's pub jukebox? There's been 80s Night, where Frizz Ease was in abundance for songs by Chaka Khan and Gloria Estefan; Movie Music, including U2, Seal and Bryan Adams; and grandad's favourite, Big Band Week. The show is so out of touch that 17-year-old contestant Nicholas McDonald complained to Dermot live on air during week five that none of the genres had happened within his lifetime. X Factor, time to up your game! Get with the programme or your ratings will continue to droop like the sad features of a basset hound. Here's our wishlist of themes from the 90s and beyond that should help put a livener in Louis's Horlicks. »

Chug, chug, chug. The X Factor keeps lurching along despite an embarrassing voting glitch and record-low ratings. And it's doubtful its lackluster, borderline unwatchable Eighties night will help matters.
After last week's clusterfuck that saw all of America's votes thrown out on the very first night viewers had their say, it's hard to feel invested. And since the show had to scrap last week's elimination in favor of a do-over, they unceremoniously tossed Boys category member Carlos Guevara at the beginning of this week's show.

Informal poll time, X Factor watchers!
The most confounding portion of tonight’s Top 12 performance telecast was:
A. Paulina Rubio’s continued employment in the face of her enthusiastic incompetence
B. Paulina’s insistence on using the word “America” while introducing her acts (Gurrl, it’ll take more than that to win us over, I’m afraid)
C. The screaming of the lambs audience
D. Mario Lopez’s obscene attempt to recreate a classic Michael Jackson dance move
E. Writhing ladies leading into various ad breaks (I didn’t hallucinate that, did I?)
F. The inclusion of an interpretive dance »

When we join "The X Factor," host Mario Lopez informs us that it's '80s night -- but he emphasizes hits from the nineteen-eighties, which really makes us wonder if he thinks anybody is confused it might be the eighteen-eighties.
Meanwhile, the female judges are decked out in their best '80s attire, which is awesome. Scroogey old Simon, however, cannot be bothered to put a suit jacket on over his plain white t-shirt and rock a Crockett and/or Tubbs look. For shame, Cowell.
However, we must eliminate someone first. You know, we hope they told the act who was eliminated last week when it actually happened so that he or she didn't have to rehearse all this week like normal. That just seems mean.
Anyway, Carlos Guevara is eliminated and for once, America got it exactly right. He had a couple very rough nights, he shouldn't have advanced out of the four-chair challenge. »

This is unbelievable ... Gloria Estefan's Miami Beach mansion is so ridiculously big ... it costs $30,000 just to rent her Guest House.Gloria put the lavish 4,500 sq. ft. Star Island "guest house" up for rent recently ... but if you look at the photos, it's really more of a guest palace: 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, private entrance, and its own spa/jacuzzi.And yes ... a guest house that size means Gloria's main residence is muy grande.The 7-bedroom, 6-bath ... 9,854 sq. »

FX’s Fargo mini-series just got more interesting, thanks to the addition of Martin Freeman. Freeman will play a “henpecked” (now that’s a word that sets off alarms) insurance salesman whose life is changed when Billy Bob Thornton‘s character comes to town.
The faboo Ana Ortiz is finally making a return to ABC, booking a guest role on Revenge as a PR specialist the Graysons (who else) hire to deal with a crisis.
A few days before its fourth season debuts, Fox has ordered a fifth season of Bob’s Burgers. So we can still hope for that episode where Bob dreams he’s a jerkface spy working for a mismanaged espionage agency.

Season 5 of The Voice kicked off with an energetic premiere and its first blind auditions on Monday, featuring two returning star coaches and the sparring chemistry of seasons past. Soul man Cee Lo Green was back with Michael Jackson's wardrobe and his trademark quips. Three-time winner Blake Shelton and his show nemesis Adam Levine resumed their snarky sparring. Also back and raring to win was a gam-o-licious Christina Aguilera, who represented with spunky girl-power, throwing off sex appeal and a lot of shapely leg. The contestants brought their A-game, too, and some cute stage bravado. "What's goin' on, handsome? »

It’s good to be The Voice right now.
While its direct competitor The X Factor flops around like a fish on a dock, and grand dame American Idol searches for a bucket to bail out the gallons of water left by Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj’s tiresome infighting, NBC’s reality singing competition is gliding through the water like a brainier Ryan Lochte (minus the “Jeah!”-ing and the water-logged docuseries).
There’s the record 15.3 million viewers for its June 2013 finale. There’s Sunday night’s Emmy win as Best Reality-Competition Series. And best of all, there’s tonight’s Season 5 premiere, »

The New York Daily News might want to just call it a day. The cover of its Tuesday edition (pictured left) focused on the Washington Navy Yard shooting — as did most other newspapers. But Nydn identified the gun used in shooting, which killed 12, as an Ar-15. That’s the same weapon used in the Newtown and Aurora mass shootings, a fact that the Nydn’s reporting made much of.

To Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the Fox & Friends morning show felt like home long before she actually got to work there.
It was regular viewing at home for Hasselbeck, whose 10 years on The View ended in July. She’ll debut as Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade’s new partner on Fox & Friends on Monday, after the departing Gretchen Carlson offered farewells Friday.
“I’d almost make the analogy that it’s being called up to play for one of your favorite teams in the major leagues,” said Hasselbeck, whose opening week will include a series of reports with the cast of Duck Dynasty. »
