Adam Lambert is a reality TV star, a singer, and now you can add film critic to his resume! The "American Idol" runner-up wasn't particularly impressed with the singing in "Les Miserables," and he's not afraid to say it.
Though Lambert liked Anne Hathaway's performance as the doomed Fantine, he thought the majority of the cast lacked the vocal chops to pull off the live singing in the film. While most movie musicals have actors lip-sync the songs over tracks they previously recorded in a studio, "Les Miserables" director Tom Hooper opted to have the cast sing live while performing.
On Sunday, Dec. 30, Lambert posted his "Les Mis" rant on Twitter.
"Les Mis: Visually impressive w great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors Pretending to be singers," he wrote. "...it's an opera. Hollywoods movie musicals treat the singing as the last priority. (Dreamgirls was good »
