Just a couple of days since Adam Lambert critiqued some of the Les Miserables actors for “pretending to be singers,” someone from the cast finally responds.
Although Lambert complimented the actors on giving emotional performances, and praised many for stellar vocals and acting especially Anne Hathaway which he called breathtaking, he thought the singing was at times distracting and dislikes how "Hollywoods movie musicals treat the singing as the last priority.”
And it looks like he's not alone in his assessment - at least partially.
Russell Crowe responded to a fan's inquiry about whether he'd seen Lambert's tweets, stating "I don't disagree with Adam." He went on to acknowledge that the vocals could have been "sweetened," but that the director "wanted it raw and real, that's how it is." He apparently saw no harm in Lambert's opinion. (source)

So, it seems the actor most criticized for his vocals doesn't mind the critique at all. Interesting.
