New Year has just passed, and there are plenty of things celebrities are expressing from wherever they are. While there are some celebrities who are thanking their fans for a wonderful 2014, there are others who are sharing what their plans for 2015 are. Among these celebrities is "American Idol" Season 8 runner-up winner Adam Lambert. What is the singer hoping for this 2015? Read on for more details.

The iconic band, Queen, recently announced that they will be going on tour with Lambert as their frontman act. With many doubting Lambert’s capacity of filling in for Freddie Mercury, there are those who question how he would be able to achieve such a demanding role. Moreover, there is a need to satisfy the loyal Queen fans who wait for the band’s return to the limelight.

According to a report from CBS local, Lambert recently pulled off a surprising performance of the band's hit song “Somebody to Love” during their New Year’s Eve concert in Westminster’s Central Hall. Performing for a sold-out crowd, the concert was filled with Queen’s greatest hits along with a fireworks display and Big Ben chiming at midnight.

Among the songs included on the hit-heavy setlist included classic favorites “We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “Fat Bottomed Girls,” “The Show Must Go On,” “Another One Bites The Dust” and “Under Pressure.” Lambert was able to belt out an incredible rendition of these songs and made them his own.

"Queen+Adam Lambert" tour in Europe will start on Jan. 13, 2015, with Newcastle as their first stop. Apart from the tour, Lambert will also be on “American Idol” this month, where he serves as a judge during the New York auditions. For his personal life, however, Lambert hopes 2015 will be the year he will finally find somebody to love.
