Adam Lambert showed up at last night’s ASCAP Awards for Pop Music looking like George Michael and Kurt Russell’s love-child who moonlights at The Grove’s MAC Cosmetics Boutique. Clearly, I’m not done beating this dead horse.
Oh, if you’re the least bit interested, here is a list of some of the winners from last night’s ceremony.
Rod Stewart, Band of Horses, Randy Bachman, Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, Max Martin, Pat Monahan of Train, EMI Music Publishing and Others Honored at Star-Studded Event

The star-studded event, which was attended by hundreds of songwriters, recording artists and music industry leaders, paid special tribute to Rod Stewart, Band of Horses and Randy Bachman, and honored the songwriters and publishers behind some of today’s most popular music.
Top awards were presented to:
- Songwriters of the Year: Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald and Max Martin
- Song of the Year: “Hey, Soul Sister” by Pat Monahan of Train

Special awards were presented to rock icon Rod Stewart who was honored with the ASCAP Founders Award, Band of Horses who received ASCAP’s Vanguard Award and Randy Bachman who was presented with the ASCAP Global Impact Award. Awards were also presented to the songwriters and publishers of ASCAP’s most performed pop songs of 2010.
Hey. Guess what else? If I hear Hey Soul Sister ONE. MORE BLOODY. TIME? I’m taking hostages. Ya hear me, Pat Monahan? I really do not enjoy Train. At all.
Lest you need the example of Adam Lambert’s birth-parents, I’m happy to oblige:
