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.
