Artist Of The Day: Adam Lambert

It is hard to take Adam Lambert seriously after his coined nickname “Glambert” and his newly released album cover art that falls along the lines of moon-lady meets 80s photo shopping. However, Lambert has found a huge celebrity fan base and, though he came in second in the most recent American Idol finals, has risen far above Idol winner Kris Allen on the fame-o-meter. Not only does openly gay Lambert have a unique style and sound, he isn’t afraid to take risks when it comes to his music performance—remind you of a certain female pop queen? (Cough, cough…Lady Gaga).

Not surprisingly, Lambert’s unconventional ways have landed him on the upper hand of Hollywood’s fame radar. This position has obviously advanced his career in ways that he couldn’t have accomplished alone. However, Lambert’s true vocal abilities and extraordinary performances should not be overlooked. Theatrics are part of Lambert’s musical theatre past on Broadway and it shows when he takes the stage. His ability to own a stage makes even a mere American Idol performance—all that fans have seen of him thus far—proof that Lambert has star quality and will become an accomplished artist.

Anticipation of Lambert’s record release has been high since his extraordinary showing on Idol earlier this year. Now, with a peek at the rock star’s track list, expectations will be met with his breakout solo album, For Your Entertainment.

Check out the track list here:

11 “Aftermath” 4:26

12 “Broken Open” 5:03

Though Lambert may dabble in eyeliner and leather leggings, he has undeniable vocal ability and stage presence. The collaborations on his debut album and those in his future musical endeavors make Lambert the newest go-to guy for a hit record. the Watch out Gaga, there’s a new Queen in the music biz.
