Adam Lambert


Date Of Birth

January 29, 1982


Adam Lambert, born on January 29, 1982, is one of the finalists of the eighth season of American Idol. Raised in the Rancho Pe?asquitos district in San Diego, California, he has been active in performing since his childhood. He was active in theater, choir and jazz band in school. At age 10, he made his debut as a stage actor, beginning with a role in the San Diego production of You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown. He’s stayed with the California musical theater scene ever since, appearing in local productions of The Ten Commandments and, most recently, the Los Angeles run of Wicked, where he worked as an understudy.

Lambert attended American Idol’s auditions in San Francisco, California, where he used skills he ac!$#!#ulated from his theater career to go through. One of the show’s early favorites, he easily made it through to the Top 36, and subsequently to the Top 12; he was part of the second batch of performers and was overwhelmingly voted into the finals. He became known for his over-the-top stage presence and his solid, if not high, vocals; his performances to date have made some speculate that he is a shoo-in to the finale.

"Well, I guess that's kind of music in general — you either love it or you don't love it." Obviously

Obviously, I'm a risk-taker. I'm not easy listening, you know? I'm not going to always be the most digestible thing for everybody across the board. I'm specific, and I kind of like to blow it out the box. And either you like it, or you don't.

"It’s HARD – the entertainment industry is really challenging . . . it’s a huge pond out here, so it’s been a struggle, it’s been pretty intense. Something wasn’t clicking in my life, I was kind of sad – is this it? That feeling was part of the thing that drove me to audition for this show. This is definitely, this is what I was missing in my life" ~ Adam Lambert iTunes confessional

“I want to be a role model for maybe that kid that feels he’s a little weird or she’s a little weird. The kid in school that doesn’t quite fit the mold, someone that wants to be different…” - Adam Lambert, top 13 interview.
