The Adam-Kurt Relationship, commonly known as Kadam, is the relationship between NYADA students, Adam Crawford and Kurt Hummel.

They meet in the episode Sadie Hawkins when Kurt is contemplating joining the Adam's Apples, NYADA's Glee Club. In Love, Love, Love, it is confirmed that they broke up.


With Rachel occupying all her time with Brody, Kurt decides to find his place at NYADA by searching for a club to join so he can fit in. He sees a flier for the NYADA glee club, The Adam's Apples, and is interested but Rachel warns him that joining such a club in college is social suicide. Later, when Kurt is caught glancing at the flier again, he meets Adam, an energetic student and leader of the Apples, who is willing for Kurt to join his glee club. They introduce themselves to each other and when Kurt is gonna say his name, Adam quickly lets him know he already know Kurt's name and also tells him how breath-taking his winter showcase performance was, meaning that Adam was in the audience while Kurt sang Being Alive, his second NYADA audition. Kurt goes to an Adam's Apples meeting and watches their over-the-top performance of Baby Got Back and seems to enjoy it. Kurt later reveals to Rachel during a walk around the city that he is interested in a guy, who is older than him, handsome and really sophisticated and recalls his various encounters with Adam and Rachel tells him that Adam is interested in him as well.

During a dance class Kurt is seen practicing, Adam walks out into the room and flatters him by saying that it was a nice plle, but Kurt lets himself down by denying it claiming he is not that much of a dancer, but Adam insists 'till Kurt accepts the compliment, thanks him and gives him a sweet smile.

Adam finds Kurt and tells him that he was thinking about him and asks if he will join to the Adam's Apples, Kurt replies that he's in, for sure and then finally plucks up the courage to ask Adam out for coffee, to which Adam happily agrees to saying that would be great and gives Kurt his number. (Sadie Hawkins)

Adam is first seen during the "Midnight Madness" as he watches contently as Rachel and Kurt have a diva-off with the song, Bring Him Home. At the end of the performance, like everyone else, he gives a silent applause. He votes for Kurt and when Kurt wins, Adam is happy and silently applauds for him again.

In the hallways of NYADA, Kurt and Adam discuss the "Midnight Madness" and the great work Kurt put into it. Rachel's friends confront Kurt about how they should hang out, but Kurt tells them off, exclaiming that they are kissing up to everyone only because they are afraid that they won't achieve their potentials. He also tells them off for gossiping about the Adam's Apples. The two walk away as Adam looks at Kurt and says he was impressed by how Kurt reacted. Kurt then sees Rachel and is excused by Adam as Kurt takes care of Rachel. (Diva)

While Kurt is making out with his ex-boyfriend Blaine in the backseat of a car in the parking lot of a church, he questions what he is doing. Kurt states the status of his and Adam's relationship to be "sort-of dating." Blaine dismisses it, reminding Kurt that he never said they were exclusive. (I Do)

At the apartment, it's snowing so hard that NYADA classes were cancelled. Adam was also at the apartment and due to the weather, couldn't leave. He and Kurt are in the kitchen with Santana, as Kurt tries to talk in a British accent. Santana starts asking Adam questions, but then gets into the details of their relationship. She brings up the wedding, and how Kurt and Blaine rekindled old flames and hooked up, and Kurt tries to cut her off but Adam already heard enough to gather an image.

During the movie, Kurt has a fantasy about Blaine and the two of them were performing Come What May. This causes him to start crying and Adam is the first to notice. When he blames them on his fake contacts, Adam starts finding solution to help him. Santana chimes in, saying that he's crying because this was the song he and Blaine would sing at their wedding. Once again, Kurt gets embarrassed and tries to change topics quickly for the sake of Adam.

At NYADA, Kurt is in the dance studio when Adam comes in to check on him. They make a bit of small talk before Adam gets down to the personal details. He wants to know if he is just the rebound guy after Blaine, and is curious if Kurt is really over him. Honestly, Kurt says that he really wants to and that he's really trying, but still hasn't get over Blaine, but that he isn't a rebound guy. Adam then tells him that they are going to see the sappiest movie in theatres and that would be considered their movie. Adam is taking Kurt's hand and they're holding hands. (Girls (and Boys) on Film)

Kurt briefly mentions Adam while making a voice over about his guilty pleasures, specifically his boyfriend arm, saying he doesn't want Adam to know about it. (Guilty Pleasures)

When Sam is talking to Blaine about his idea to propose to Kurt, he says that just a few weeks ago, Blaine didn't even know what Kurt's status with Adam was. (All or Nothing)

Adam is mentioned during Kurt and Blaine's picnic. Blaine asks Kurt about his history with Adam and where they stand now, to which Kurt replies that there is no history and that he was nice and people liked the idea of the two of them as a couple, but it never got serious and that eventually they just didn't work out. (Love, Love, Love)

Kurt mentions that Adam kicked him out of the Adam's Apples after he found out Kurt got engaged. (A Katy or A Gaga)
