Adam Mitchel Lambert (born January 29, 1982) is an American singer and actor from Los Angeles, California. He was the runner-up on the eighth season of American Idol. He released his first album, For Your Entertainment, in 2009.
Lambert grew up in Rancho Peñasquitos, San Diego, California and attended Deer Canyon Elementary School, Mesa Verde Middle School, and Mt. Carmel High School, where he was in theater, choir, and frequently performed with the school’s jazz band.
Lambert has been a stage actor since he was about 10 years old; he was cast as Linus in San Diego’s Lyceum Theater’s production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. He also played a part in The Ten Commandments at the Kodak Theatre alongside Val Kilmer. He was the understudy for the part of Fiyero in the touring and Los Angeles casts of the musical Wicked. Since 2004 he regularly performs at the Zodiac Show, which was co-created by Carmit Bachar of the Pussycat Dolls. He also performed at the Upright Cabaret.
Lambert auditioned for the eighth season of American Idol in San Francisco, California. During his initial audition, he sang “Bohemian Rhapsody”. In the semifinals, Lambert was voted into the Top 13, joining fellow Group 2 performers Allison Iraheta and Kris Allen.
During Michael Jackson week, he sang “Black or White” leading to praise from all four judges, with Paula Abdul predicting that he would go on to the finals. The following week, Lambert sang a modified version of “Ring of Fire”. While Randy Jackson, DioGuardi, and Abdul all liked his performance, Cowell called it “indulgent rubbish”. On Motown night, Lambert distanced himself from his rocker persona, singing a slowed down, acoustic version of “The Tracks of My Tears”. The judges all liked it, and Smokey Robinson, the week’s mentor and the original singer-songwriter, gave Adam a standing ovation. For his Top 8 performance, Lambert sang the 2001 Gary Jules arrangement of “Mad World”. Because the show had exceeded its time slot, only Cowell gave a critique, which he did by simply giving Lambert a standing ovation. During the results next night, the other judges agreed that a standing ovation was the best critique of Adam’s performance. For his second Top 7 performance, Lambert sang “If I Can’t Have You”, delivering what DioGuardi described as his “most memorable performance”, while Cowell described his vocals as “immaculate”. Abdul was reduced to tears, with host Ryan Seacrest joking that Lambert had melted her into a “pool of Abdul”.
Photos of Lambert kissing another man were shown and discussed by conservative commentators on The O’Reilly Factor; They agreed that the images would likely have no impact on the competition because the focus remains on the singers’ talent. Lambert confirmed that the photos were of him, stating he had nothing to hide and has always been open about his life.
