Adam Lambert is our “Hollywood Celebrity of the Year”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Forget about winning “American Idol.” The show’s runners-up often have better careers.
For every winner like Carrie Underwood or Kelly Clarkson, there is a major talent in the pop show’s No. 2 slot who goes on to meet – or surpass – the singer who beat them out. We’re talking about runners-up like Clay Aiken, Katharine McPhee and, of course, our “Hollywood Celebrity of the Year” … Adam Lambert.
Lambert was destined for fame. He just happened to find it in 2010. Sure, his debut album, “For Your Entertainment,” hit streets late in 2009.
But it was his worldwide “Glam Nation Tour” and consistent airplay for singles like “Whataya Want From Me,” “If I Had You” and the album’s title track that kept Lambert on our radars all year.
And it’s his immeasurable talent (and undeniable flair) that should keep him front and center as 2011 roars in. Lambert’s musicianship has made him a pop-culture sensation. His album peaked at No. 3 on U.S. Billboard 200 while climbing international ranks. We can’t wait to hear his follow up. Until then, Adam Lambert will have to be content being our “Hollywood Celebrity of the Year.” Congratulations!
