Adam Lambert American Idol
In February 2014, Lambert returned to American Idol, where he was a guest mentor during Randy Jackson’s two-night “Boot Camp” workshop. He auditioned for the eighth season of American Idol in San Francisco, California by singing “Rock with You” and “Bohemian Rhapsody”. Advancing to Hollywood week, he performed “What’s Up” and “Believe” solo, and “Some Kind of Wonderful” in the group effort.
Simon Cowell voiced some concern about his theatricality, but Randy Jackson found it “current”. He advanced easily to the top 36 performing “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”. In the first week of live shows, his rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” was praised by all four judges. For Country week, he sang a sitar-infused version of “Ring of Fire”.
His Motown night acoustic version of The Miracles’ “The Tracks of My Tears” drew praise from judges and a standing ovation from Smokey Robinson, the week’s mentor. Advancing to the top 8, he sang the 2001 Michael Andrews and Gary Jules arrangement of “Mad World”.
Because the show had exceeded its time slot, only Cowell gave a critique, which he did by giving Lambert a standing ovation, the only one he bestowed during his decade-long run as an American Idol judge. After Lambert sang “If I Can’t Have You”, delivering what DioGuardi called his “most memorable performance”,
Cowell described his vocals as “immaculate.” For the top 3 show, he performed “One” before Cowell declared, “If you are not in the final next week, it will be one of the biggest upsets”; and continued with “Cryin'” before Abdul affirmed, “we’ll be seeing you next week and many years after that”.
Lambert performed three solos in the finale, a reprise of “Mad World”, followed by the 1960s civil rights anthem “A Change Is Gonna Come”, to tremendously positive judge reaction. After his performance of the mandatory winner’s single, “No Boundaries” Cowell summed up Lambert’s journey:
“Over the entire season, you’ve been one of the best, most original contestants we’ve ever had on the show. The hope and whole idea of a show like this is to find a worldwide star, and I truly believe we’ve found that in you”. He was announced as the runner-up for the eighth season of American Idol.
Upon winning, Kris Allen stated: “Adam deserved this”, later explaining he thought Lambert deserved to win as much as he did, and that Lambert “was the most consistent person all year. He was seriously one of the most gifted performers that I’ve ever met”. His version of the winner’s single was released alongside Allen’s.
The LA Times later ranked Lambert fifth in its list of the top 120 American Idol contestants, selected from the first nine seasons of the show, above Allen. Photos of Lambert kissing another man surfaced during the American Idol competition. Highlighted as controversial, they were displayed by conservative commentators on The O’Reilly Factor, who called them “embarrassing,” but did not agree that the images would impact the competition.
Lambert confirmed that the photos were of him, stating he had nothing to hide and had always been open about his life. Mainstream media speculated on his sexuality and the readiness of American Idol voters for an openly gay winner. He confirmed that he was gay in a Rolling Stone cover interview shortly thereafter.
Adam Lambert Philanthropy
He teamed up with the charity for his “Glam A Classroom” campaign in June 2010 where he raised a raising of $208,590, supported by 3,020 fans. In October 2010, he collaborated on a second Signature Collection with The Pennyroyal Studio, which sold out after raising $43,092 for DonorsChoose.
He then contributed to the MusiCares charity when he and The Pennyroyal Studio collaborated on the design of an Eye of Horus pendant, whose sale raised $32,000 in 7 days. He then began a campaign to raise $29,000 for charity: water to commemorate his 29th birthday and the campaign raised a total value of $323,803, which helped 16,190 people receive clean water in January 2011.
On January 31, 2013 he received the Unity Award, which honors artists whose music spreads “peaceful messages,” from the We Are Family Foundation at their 2012 Celebration Gala 2.0. Lambert “donated” his 31st birthday to the charity, raising more than $82,000 in just over a week.
For his 32nd birthday, he chose the charity again, coordinating with artist Chris Saunders on the creation of limited and open edition prints and posters whose sales benefited the foundation.
Adam Lambert LGBT advocacy
He has been a contributor to social justice. He stated, “I feel like with celebrity and visibility and fame, there’s a responsibility to try to give back and try to use the visibility for the greater good. It’s not all about me. It’s about trying to raise awareness and getting people to take action.”
His heavily provocative AMA performance, featuring a gay kiss on live television, served to push societal boundaries by highlighting a double standard of ethics in media regulation as well.
He received a GLAAD Media Award nomination for Outstanding Music Artist in 2010. The same year, he lent his voice to a one-and-a-half minute video message on YouTube for the It Gets Better campaign – a project created by columnist Dan Savage in response to school bullying and a rash of suicides among LGBT youth.
Adam Lambert and Queen
Queen + Adam Lambert is a collaboration between the active members of the British band Queen (Brian May and Roger Taylor) and American vocalist Adam Lambert. As with all other Queen performances since 1997, longstanding bassist John Deacon has declined to participate in the project due to his retirement.
This is the first long-term collaboration of Queen since the Queen + Paul Rodgers project ended in 2009. Like the previous project, it was made clear that Lambert would not be replacing Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, but rather that he would be featured with the band’s active members.
The collaboration originated when May and Taylor appeared on American Idol in 2009 when Lambert was a contestant. They began performing occasionally in 2011, conducted a short European tour in 2012, and in 2014 announced a world tour, the Queen + Adam Lambert Tour 2014–2015 with dates in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Europe and South America.
