  1. Aw, Shaun White is such a cutie. 🙂


  2. Here’s a link to Adam’s performance (Hulu):

    And on youtube (courtesy of MJ’s big blog):


  3. Slightly OT, but since this is the first post about Adam since the AMAs.

    Here’s another Adam tidbit for you:

    Here’s Adam doing an AMAZING acoustic, bluesy, jazzy version of Whole Lotta Love (from Feb. 27 concert at Fantasy Springs):


  4. I attended this concert, where he said he got all “Indio-ed” and witchy in honor of the location (it’s an Indian casino). In addition to his usual electro/pop/glam rock repertoire, he did four acoustic numbers, and this one was absolutely gorgeous. There is another version on YouTube that has the best audio and video combined, and includes the clip at the end where he talks about not having rehearsed this in advance with the band. That one can be found at

    It seems that every performance that Adam does is different from and better than the last one. Check out his VH-1 Unplugged group, and the iHeartRadio Unstripped ones for other acoustic performances of songs from his album.

    Can’t wait for the Vancouver concerts in April, I’m going to both of them. I hadn’t planned to, but after the amazing performances at Fantasy Springs, I can’t resist!
