Former “American Idol” contestant Adam Lambert got a little bit snarky on his Twitter when he shared his feelings about the casting choices made for the movie “Les Miserables”. After seeing the movie Lambert took to the social media network to let his fans know that he was less than impressed with the singing talents of the main cast members. “Les Miserables” stars Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russel Crowe, among others.
"Les Mis: Visually impressive w great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers," tweeted Lambert.
Director of “Les Miserables”, Tom Hooper, had the actors sing live while they were filming each scene instead of just lip syncing to a pre-recorded track. This takes much more effort, talent and dedication from each actor, but apparently it failed to impress “Idol” alumni Lambert.
"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?" he said. "Sorry for being so harsh but it's so True!"
After receiving some negative backlash from many of his followers, Lambert back tracked a bit and said that it is a result of his childhood upbringing around musicals that make his expectations so high, and that Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen gave fantastic performances.
Do you think that Adam Lambert has a valid point, being a past contestant on live signing show “American Idol”, or is he just looking for attention?
