Excerpts from ‘Idols’ New Bad Boy – Love Him or Hate Him, Adam Lambert Leads The ‘Idol’ Pack… New York Post

Ariel Almaraz, 20, of Whittier, CA became a fan after watching Lambert perform as Fiyero in the Los Angeles company of “Wicked” where he settled as a popular understudy after the national tour. “He’s really gracious with his fans,” she says. “He knows the people who support him and how to treat them respectfully.”

“He’s a complete professional”, says executive producer Chris Isaacson, 32, of the Upright Cabaret, a popular West Hollywood cabaret where Lambert also performed, “he always knows his music and he’s always on time.” Isaacson calls Lambert, “a very nice soul” and insists, “You get no Diva from him.”

Isaacson’s partner and Upright co-executive producer, Shane Scheel, 32, calls Lambert “completely innovative and creative.” He adds, “Adam sings a song, does his own twist on it and makes it seem effortless.”

It was Lambert’s close knit LA theater family that encouraged him to audition for Idol. “We had been telling him, ‘You should try out for Idol, you’d do really great on that’,” says Isaacson.Theater background aside, Lambert doesn’t see himself as a Broadway singer, “I just don’t see myself doing that as a recording artist in that way,” Lambert said recently, “I don’t listen to show tunes in my spare time, I can assure you of that.”

Despite his theater bias, Simon Cowell is coming around, though, calling Lambert’s Michael Jackson-themed performance of “Black and White” in “a totally different league.”

But according to Isaacson, “They haven’t really tapped into what he can do yet.” “I think you are in for some really spectacular performances from him,” says Isaacson, “We’re at the tip of the iceberg of what he can do.”
