Adam Lambert paid a musical tribute to David Bowie.
The 'For Your Entertainment' hitmaker honoured the legendary singer - who tragically passed away at the age of 69 after a secret battle with cancer - by performing the late star's hit track 'Let's Dance' during a concert in Tokyo, Japan.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote: "I love how Bowie challenged people's perception of gender stereotypes and what an Outsider truly was. He was SO ahead of his time. (sic)"
Meanwhile, the 33-year-old singer previously revealed he has a "particular fond spot" for 'Let's Dance' as it was recorded with Nile Rodgers, who he had worked with too.
He shared: "I have a particular fond spot for Bowie's collaboration with Nile Rodgers because I, too, got to work with Nile, so I've heard stories and I love that sound that he put forth with that era. I loved the funky kind of dance hybrid stuff that he was doing."
He also expressed his love for David's joint track with Queen, 'Under Pressure', as he found the process of making it "fascinating".
He said: "That song was based mostly on them freestyling on ad libs, and then they sort of stitched together a song out of it, which was kind of fascinating.
"They didn't write the song in the traditional sense, which is the proof of Bowie and Mercury's genius and how much they were the music."
