Adam Lambert stole the show on last night’s (Nov. 7) Katy Perry vs. Lady Gaga episode of Glee. For his debut appearance as Elliot “Starchild,” Lambert enters Kurt’s band audition dressed in a black tux, top hat and glitter, and proceeds to swing from a chandelier while Demi Lovato backs him up on guitar. It was full-on Glambert, and it was fabulous.

When asked of his song selection (Lady Gaga‘s “Marry the Night”), Lambert’s Starchild simply states, “It’s by one of my favorite artists, someone who always inspires me to be myself, no matter what other people think.”

On the episode, titled A Katy or A Gaga, Glee positioned the two pop divas against one another, as so often has happened in the press this fall during the singers’ concurrent record campaigns.  The costumes were, admittedly, pretty fantastic. (All songs in the player below.)

In a recreation of the song’s jungle-themed video, the cast covered Perry’s “Roar,” whereas the group’s interpretation of “Wide Awake” was more stripped down.

They also took on Gaga’s “Applause” with an all-male salute to Gaga’s more avant garde costuming selections. We haven’t seen this many men in drag on Glee since the Rocky Horror episode.

For his over-the-top Glee role, Lambert has said he reused some of his past fashion don’ts. “Think in some ways it’s kind of a parody of some of my past fashion (steps and MISsteps),” he tweeted. He added that Elliot’s look is a “tacky and doesn’t fit well.”

But, Lambert tweeted that he thinks there’s something charming about the guy’s look, “I def see myself in this character. In critics eyes I’ve oft missed the mark, but in my own world, I’ve had a great time playing dress up.”
