Artist of the Week: Adam Lambert

We snagged a couple minutes with Adam Lambert last time he was passing through NYC and got the inside scoop on his favorite performers, his NYC escapades and his first time on the radio! We’ve been huge fans of Lambert since his American Idol days, and we don’t love him any less now that he’s sold 3 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

Adam Lambert rose to fame in 2009 after finishing as runner-up on the eighth season of American Idol. Later that year, he released his debut album, For Your Entertainment, which debuted at number three on the U.S Billboard 200. The album spawned several hit singles, including "Whataya Want from Me", for which he received a Grammy nomination for "Best Male Pop Vocal Performance"
