Adam Lambert’s Memorial Day weekend festivities kicked off on the beach and concluded in Canada as the American Idol season eight runner-up celebrated the No.1 debut of his sophomore CD, Trespassing.
The glam-rocker bookended the extended weekend with a radio appearance and a Memorial Day television interview for MuchMusic’s New.Music.Live show in Toronto, Canada, where he praised the unifying power of song.
“Music doesn’t have an orientation [or] a preference,” he said Monday. “Music is universal, we all love to dance, we all love to feel, and we all love to sing along to stuff. [It] doesn’t matter if you’re gay, straight, black, white, girl or boy.”
Adam Lambert has seen more monumental moments than most -- chief among them: coming in second on American Idol -- and this week, the glam rocker adds another to his long list of achievements: his first No. 1 album.
Adam Lambert is widely regarded as one of the most successful contestants to come out of American Idol. In that sense, he defies the odds. After all, so many alums of the No. 1 Fox show fizzle as quickly as they skyrocketed to fame.
Adam Lambert took the stage at the iHeartRadio Theater in New York City on Tuesday to perform for a packed house in celebration of the release of his second studio album, Trespassing.
After kicking off the set with the album’s title track, the 30-year-old American Idol alum told the packed crowd of radio winners, "I’m so happy I finally got [the album] out to you guys!" (Trespassing had originally been scheduled for a March 20 release.)
Like all American Idol top 2 finalists, it was a minute before Adam Lambert could take a breath. From the competition, he hit the road with season 8's Top 10, recorded on the rare day off, released his debut, For Your Entertainment within six months’ time, then embarked on his own international tour with nary a moment’s rest.
American Idol's Season 11 was whittled down to the Top 6 on Thursday night, as 20-year-old Colton Dixon was -- to the shock and dismay of many -- sent home after a difficult week of “Then and Now” songs.
Clay Aiken is stepping back into the limelight, revealing more personality than ever.
The 33-year-old singer will always be part of the permanent pop-culture lexicon after gaining fame as one of the most successful runners-up in American Idol history, dating back nine years to season two.
