'American Idol': Adam Lambert performing at GLAAD awards

adam-lambert-tour-getty.jpg "American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert has added another engagement to his agenda for his brief stop in the U.S. during his international tour -- performing at the GLAAD awards.

Adam says of the event, "GLAAD has advocated for out music artists, including myself, and I am proud to be part of the 21st Annual GLAAD Media Awards this year. GLAAD's work to share stories that grow acceptance and understanding about the gay and transgender community is so important in our culture today."

The 21 st Annual GLAAD Media Awards will be held April 17 in Los Angeles and also in attendance will be Constance McMillen, the Mississippi teenager whose high school canceled the prom because she wanted to attend with her girlfriend. Constance will present the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to Wanda Sykes. 

The event is being hosted by Candis Cayne ("Dirty Sexy Money") and Wilson Cruz ("My So-Called Life"), Drew Barrymore is being honored with the Vanguard award and the list of special guests include the cast of "Glee," Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir, Eric Dane ("Grey's Anatomy"), Jason Lewis ("Sex and the City," "Brothers & Sisters") and Sofia Vergara ("Modern Family").

Check out the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation website for full details. And don't forget Adam Lambert will be back on "American Idol" April 13 and 14 to mentor the Idols for Elvis week and perform his hit single "Whataya Want From Me."
