Adam Lambert has used ‘Idol’ as a platform to prove his talent
HollywoodNews.com: Adam Lambert is one of those true artists, the ones who do it because they love it, not because of the fame or fortune. This is probably one of the reasons why his originality and unique style has garnered him thousands of fans around the world.
So when people try to criticize him for his recent Grammy nomination, he explains that he has earned every bit of it. He says, “I believe ‘American Idol’ is a dream platform for any artist. It did not however, teach me how to sing or perform. I made music for years prior to the show but knew that most major labels wouldn’t be interested in me as a mainstream pop artist unless I could develop a legitimate fan base and prove that I had talent. ‘Idol’ gave me these opportunities. But I feel I earned my current success by preparing and executing a variety of strong performances every week on the show and being comfortable being different,” reports THR.
We couldn’t agree more with the pop star.
