WITH millions of album sales to his name and a voice that is the envy of the industry, Adam Lambert is one of the hottest musical talents on the planet.
The former American Idol runner-up is lined up to sing alongside Saara Aalto in the traditional X Factor final duet this year.

Adam was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, the son of a Leila, a dental hygienist, and Eder Lambert, a program manager of Norwegian descent.
The 34-year-old was raised as Jewish, the religion of his mother, and has a younger brother called Neal – the family moved to San Diego, California shortly after he was born.

Adam spent several years striving for his big break, fronting an underground rock band The Citizen Vein while performing in musical theatre productions.
He was an understudy for the role of Fiyero in the hit musical Wicked, and toured as an ensemble member with the show from 2005 to 2008.
His big break came when he auditioned for the eighth season of American Idol in 2009, wowing the judges with performances of classic tracks “Rock with You” and Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

O.K. Tried to attach a link from youtube....failed miserably....technologically disavantaged!

But I can at least announce that the first showing of Saara and Adam's duet on X Factor... and it WAS Bohemian Rhapsody... has turned up on Youtube, but you will have to go find it for yourselves. Sorry.

They were great, but that particular video shut off just before the ending, darn it!

What a wonderful and correct compilation of Adam's career. I am impressed with the accuracy of what was said in the article. Adam is a wonderful and so talented young man and is deserving of all the accolades he is finally receiving. I am a fan since the beginning and forever!!
