Singer Adam Lambert is criticizing the big-screen adaptation of “Les Miserables,” saying the production consists of “great actors PRETENDING to be singers.”

ABC News reported that the “American Idol” runner up sent out several tweets over the weekend after seeing the movie.

Although Lambert criticized the singing, he said the movie was “visually impressive” with “great emotional performances.”

“The industry will say ‘these actors were so brave to attempt singing this score live’ but why not cast actors who could actually sound good?” Lambert wrote. “I felt like I should ignore the vocals and focus on the emotional subtext-but the singing was so distracting at times it pulled me out.”

Lambert later apologized for his remarks.

“I grew up w this musical and so my expectations are quite high,” Lambert said. “DO go see it for Anne Hathaways performance. It’s was breathtaking.”

The movie is based on an 1862 French historical novel focusing on the struggles of an ex-convict. The 2012 movie stars Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe and was directed by Tom Hooper.
