Adam Lambert & 'Les Miserables': Singer Slams Musical Over Vocal Performances

After months of anticipation, the film adaptation of "Les Miserables" hit theaters on Christmas Day. Starring Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Hugh Jackman, and Russell Crowe, "Les Miserables" made $18.2 million on its opening day.

The film has been mostly well-received by critics, with extra attention paid to the live singing done by the actors.

One person that was less than impressed with the actors' vocal chops was singer and former "American Idol" contestant, Adam Lambert, who took to his Twitter page on Sunday night to criticize the singing in the film. He called his opinions "harsh" but later clarified to fans, "I'm so glad we are all discussing this now! Look-I grew up w this musical and so my expectations are quite high. Didn't mean to b negative." Lambert also made a point of celebrating Hathaway for her role, saying, "One more clarification: DO go see it for Anne Hathaways performance. It's was breathtaking." Take a look at Lambert's critique below.
