Adam Lambert posted a series of tweets this week slamming the singing ability of the actors in Les Misérables — and Russell Crowe has agreed with him.

"The score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers," the American Idol singer tweeted.

"Why not cast actors who could actually sound good?" he continued. Harsh!

He also added that the film should have been "studio recorded" and the vocals should have been "sweetened".

"I don't disagree with Adam," Russell tweeted, replying to a fan who commented on Adam's review.

"Sure it could have been sweetened. [Tom] Hooper wanted it raw and real, that's how it was."

The pop star's rant wasn't entirely negative — he did commend Anne Hathaway as Fantine and Gossip Girl's Aaron Tveit Enjolras. Helena B[onham] Carter and Sasha B[aron] Cohen were great too," he added.

We wonder how Russell's 30 Odd Foot of Grunts fans feel about Adam’s remarks on his singing.
