Adam Lambert Covers Metallica (Top Story)

Adam Lambert Covers Metallica was a top story in October. Here it is again as we recap 2010: (Gibson) American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert stunned pretty much everyone in attendance at a gig in Auckland, New Zealand, when he covered Metallica's "Enter Sandman" as a birthday surprise for his bass player Tommy Joe Ratliff.

Lambert's band has more metal cred than you might suspect. His guitarist is Monte Pittman, who appears on five albums with Prong, including their thrash-tastic 2007 release Power of the Damager and the 2009 remix album Power of the Damn Mixxxer.

After the gig, Ratliff tweeted, "Just got THEE sickest early bday present ever! Got to play 'Enter Sandman' on stage with the baddest singer and band ever!!!! thank you guys!" while Pittman said, "We surprised Tommy by doing 'Enter Sandman'-Metallica for his birthday! Happy Birthday Tommy! We only got to rehearse once." - more on this story
