UPDATE: Yesterday we reported, virtually moments after it was announced by the !WANjK CMA Awards Twitter account, that Adam Lambert won the CMA-WAY award for Best Male Singer – International.
But shortly after that, !WANjK CMA announced that Lambert had also won Best Single – International for “Whataya Want From Me.”
Here is information (in German) from the CMA-WAY website listing the winners:
Sieger: Beste Single International In der Kategorie “Beste Single International” gewinnt mit 56% “Whataya Want From me” von Adam Lambert Beste Single International
- 56% Whataya Want From Me (Adam Lambert)
- 12% Kings And Queens (30 Seconds To Mars)
- 11% Waka Waka (Shakira)
Lambert has been receiving long overdue accolades after initially being ignored by U.S. music award shows like the MTV VMAs, American Music Awards and the People’s Choice Awards.
Lambert did, however, recently receive a nomination for a coveted GRAMMY®. The GRAMMY nomination is for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance – also for “Whataya Want From Me.” And another testament to Lambert’s growing popularity is his being included in multiple 2010 year-end Billboard “Top Charts.”
Adam Lambert has been getting international kudos as well – he was voted Entertainer of the Year at Flecking Records, and previously won Sexiest Male Celebrity. Lambert won a MuchMusic Video Award in Canada earlier this year.
The ‘American Idol’ breakout star returned to Los Angeles yesterday afternoon, tweeting to let his fans know he was home safe and sound after performing at the Y100 Jingle Ball in Sunrise, FL.

Lambert concludes his largely sold-out international Glam Nation tour this week with appearances at the Music Box and Club Nokia in LA.
