Adam Lambert was the musical guest on Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The 30-year-old Lambert took to the Bud Light outdoor stage to perform a five-song set from his sophomore album Trespassing, which is due May 15.

Roughly 1,000 fans watched the live performance, which was broadcast from the parking lot behind El Capitan theater in Hollywood.

Two songs, Trespassing and Never Close Our Eyes, which Lambert co-wrote with Bruno Mars, were broadcast on the ABC late-night talk show. (His performance of Never Close Our Eyes is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Lambert also performed Naked Love, Broken English and Cuckoo.

The American Idol alum also made the cover of gay glossy Instinct.

He told the magazine that the gay community is resistant to celebrate gay male pop stars.

“As a community, we're a little bit resistant to a gay male pop star ourselves,” Lambert said.

“It's very easy for people to look at my origin, which is American Idol, and automatically assume that I'm a commercial sellout or a puppet or a flash in the pan. I don't think I'm any of those things.”

“There's something weird there,” he added, with a laugh. “We're very eager to celebrate a strong female. But to celebrate a fellow gay man – it gets catty sometimes.”
