Fan responses to Lambert's spot-on Cher impression immediately started popping up on Twitter. "i didn't know i needed adam lambert singing the muffin man as cher," one viewer tweeted.
"I'll never recover from hearing Adam Lambert sing Muffin Man in the tune of Cher," another wrote. "I'll only accept this from now on." See more tweets under the clip.
Lambert, who now fronts Queen + Adam Lambert, was runner-up on 2009's American Idol Season 8. "The Muffin Man" as a nursery rhyme goes back to the early 19th century.
In 1998, Cher's "Believe" revolutionized the use of Auto-Tune in pop recordings when it emerged that year from her 22nd studio album of the same name. That's My Jam airs on Mondays at 10PM ET/9PM CT on NBC. It streams on Peacock the following day.
