Many American Idol Contestants, among which are such memorable Idol performers as Fantasia, Diana DeGarmo, Constantine Maroulis, Frenchie Davis, Clay Aiken and Taylor Hicks have found their way to the Broadway stage. Adam Lambert did things in reverse, performing in the Broadway Production Wicked in Los Angeles before auditioning for Idol. Adam played Fiyero.
Wicked wasn’t Adam’s first professional stint. Prior to joining Wicked, he performed in The Ten Commandments as “Joshua” at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. Lambert’s Idol audition was broadcast on the Jan. 20 show from San Francisco, and he sang Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” to get a unanimous pass to Hollywood. In later weeks he sang a Cher tune though and the likeness in his voice to that of Cher combined with his make up made us worry about his apparent penchant to be a female impersonator.
To get to the final 12, Adam belted out a screamingly ostentatious version of The Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction,” to which we said, the scream is back! Adam can scream, with ease, and that is an incredibly difficult feat for most singers. His scream is on par with Stephen Tyler and Roger Daltry who identified their songs with powerful screams.
Some very risqué photos of Adam tongue-ing it up with his favorite boy toy kind of left us wondering if his image is what Idol is really looking for at this point. The images which we are not even publishing here- were intended to be private on his social network page, but it is questionable putting pictures like this up on any web page at all. Adam has talent, but is America willing to buy into his sexually explicit image? We are not sure and it could be a problem for Adam going forward. Adam is 27 years old and is from Los Angeles, California.
