Adam Lambert Has Got What It Takes To Be A Star

by on Apr.14, 2009, under All About Adam

Adam Lambert has the whole package… incredible talent, outrageous vocals, polarizing charisma and the brilliant stage presence to entertain and excite his audience. He has everyone in the news media talking about his most recent performance while waiting with anticipation for his next one. Adam Lambert is the most talented and exciting contestant to ever grace the Idol stage. Even with all the praise and attention, Adam remains humble and appreciative which makes him someone to be admired for reasons beyond his talent as well.

Adam Lambert is ‘Idols’ only Star
There’s still a month and a half to go until “American Idol” crowns its champion, and anyone left in the competition could come out on top. But if it ended right now, there’s no question that Adam Lambert would be the most deserving winner.

“Make the song your own” may be the most frequent advice given by the judges to “Idol” contestants. It’s not just because they are too lazy to come up with new catchphrases, but because originality is a key to succeeding on the show and in the business. Without that spark, all anyone is doing is covering songs that established acts have already done better.

On the other hand, Lambert is the guy who everyone wants to see, because he is willing to take risks and able to make them pay off. Every week, he walks that high-wire and leaves judges and viewers wondering if this is the time he’ll fall on his face, and every week he instead emerges as the star of the night. by Craig Berman, msnbc.com

Just having singing talent isn’t enough. For those of us who watch American Idol, we know there is so much more expected from the contestants. They have to tackle various theme weeks without sounding karaoke and the best way to do that is to change up the song to make it sound current. Not too much to ask is it? Take a top selling classic and re-work it to make it not only current but good… really good. Take that task and combine it with limited time to make it happen each week and some contestants just can’t deliver.

Ricky Minor: “Everybody can’t do this.”
“This is a fast-moving machine,” Minor says. “No matter what you see on television, everybody can’t do this, can’t move at this speed.” Adam Lambert, on the other hand, had no problems getting up to speed with a creative take on Wild Cherry’s 1976 hit Play That Funky Music. “Adam had an idea about mixing rock and funk and said, basically, ‘Do what you can with it,’” Minor says. Minor and the Idol band work with each contestant to arrange their songs — “I’m already talking to them about next week’s show,” he says — but not every contestant is as adventurous as Adam. by Brian Mansfield, USA Today

Maybe that’s why people are putting their hard earned money on Adam Lambert.

Safe Bet Adam Odds-On To Win ‘Idol’
Oddsmakers from Latin America to London for the first time this week have made the show-stopping crooner such a prohibitive favorite to win this year’s “Idol” that a $1 bet on him will pay only 80 cents. The talent show has seen some heavy favorites in the past but nothing quite like Lambert — who is running away from the field with seven other performers still in the running. by David K., New York Post
