Adam Lambert hailed as one of the 3 greatest vocalists by Meat Loaf

Iconic rock singer Meat Loaf has praised the vocal ability of 'Whataya Want From Me' superstar Adam Lambert and confessed he is "jealous" of the young singer's talent. 

In a new interview with ITV's Daybreak (February 29), the 'Bat Out Of Hell' hitmaker explained that there are only 3 vocalists in his opinion who can do the "overdrive" technique and named Lambert as one of them:

"There's only 3 singers that I've ever thought in life that have this ability to do what is called an 'overdrive'. One is Aretha (Franklin), one is Whitney (Houston) and there's a singer named Adam Lambert - a young kid - that has this overdrive, and I'm really jealous of those people."

Lambert's incredible range and control was also noticed by the legendary band Queen last year, who recruited him for a special one-off performance at the MTV EMAs as their frontman for the evening.

Following his phenomenal set with the group back in November, he has since confirmed that they will reunite for an exclusive slot at the UK's Sonisphere festival this summer.
