Adam Lambert releases full Rihanna ‘Stay’ cover, praises her performance at the Grammys

Last week Adam Lambert released a thirty second preview clip covering Rihanna’s latest track ‘Stay’.

And gauging from the reaction on Twitter, you guys LOVED it.

With fans wanting to hear more than just 30 seconds, Adam told his followers that if they sat tight, a full version would be appearing very soon.

He wrote on Twitter: "it was a preview! It was rehearsal. More to come! (sic)"

Well, it seems that Adam is a man of his word as he has now released the full version of the cover and suffice to say, it sounds incredible.

The recording was taken from a live show Adam put on in Tokyo, proving once again that he really should have taken the crown when he competed on American Idol back in 2009.

The 31-year-old American idol runner up posted the clip on his official Twitter feed earlier today, writing: “Here is STAY / UNDERNEATH from our first night in Tokyo! Enjoy!”
