On Monday night The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story aired in the US on ABC.
The documentary looks at the iconic group and their collaboration with the American Idol star. Some clips from the documentary are available to watch, and the first features Lambert and his mother talking about recognising his talent early on and how he found his people after joining a theater group as a kid
In the clip Adam’s mother Leila Lambert says, “when Adam was younger he didn’t quite fit in. He didn’t like sports.”
She continues saying, “he would do a lot of acting out, fantasy things and he would ask me to film him and take pictures while he was dancing or singing. We thought there’s got to be another outlet.”

In another clip Lambert discusses taking cues from Queen’s Spike Edney during his first show with Queen. He says, “I had a lot of help. Spike, who was on keys, I kept looking at over and over again like ‘am I supposed to come in here? How long is the guitar solo? Is it my turn?’
You can watch him discussing that in more depth below:
The documentary also included an intimate look at a pre-show harmonizing warm-up with Freddie Mercury that still continues with Lambert.
Queen + Adam Lambert recently announced dates in Australia and Japan for 2020.
