Adam Lambert Wows with Cher Impression on ‘That’s My Jam’
American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert was recently a guest on That’s My Jam, where he showed off an amazing impression of Cher during a game of Wheel of Musical Impressions. But Lambert didn’t perform one of Cher’s songs. Instead, he sang a nursery rhyme.
Adam Lambert Does Cher Impression on That’s My Jam
Wheel of Musical Impressions challenges guests to sing a song in the style of a different artist. In this case, Lambert was tasked with singing “The Muffin Man” as Cher. The star totally understood the assignment.
Lambert ended up singing about the Muffin Man on Drury Lane to the tune of Cher’s hit song “Believe,” topping it all off with a spot-on Cher impression. As host Jimmy Fallon said to Lambert after the performance, “How do you do that?”
As Today points out, this isn’t Lambert’s first time taking on Cher’s discography. In 2018, he sang “Believe” as a ballad during the Kennedy Center Honors. The performance brought Cher to tears, and she later tweeted about how touched she was.
