In one of the biggest upsets in Idol history, Adam lost to Kris Allen during his season in 2009. Of course, Adam went on to have a successful post-Idol career anyway. He's released three successful albums — 2009's For Your Entertainment, 2012's Trespassing, and 2015's The Original High. When he's not touring with Queen, he's a vocal advocate for the LGBT community. He's 35 years old.
