He got his start on American Idol, and now Queen frontman and international superstar Adam Lambert is bringing high drama to the Australian Idol stage!
The Grammy Award-winning singer rose to fame on American Idol in 2009 with electrifying performances and a killer personality, placing runner-up behind winner Kris Allen.
Arguably one of the most famous faces to come out of the franchise worldwide (hello, he’s with Queen now…), the singer continued to wow judges Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell throughout his series.
“I can’t wait to be in Australia again and perform on Australian Idol. Counting down the days until I’m there!” Adam said in a statement.
Lambert will perform his latest single, Holding Out for a Hero, from his new album High Drama.
Adam Lambert’s career has gone from strength-to-strength
An extraordinary multi-faceted artist, Lambert has gone on to forge an impressive career in the music industry as a singer and songwriter, releasing multiple albums and hit singles.
Following his turn on the hit show, the artist released For Your Entertainment, which included Whatya Want From Me, which earned him a gold gramophone.
His second album, Trespassing, became the first album to reach the number-one spot in the US and Canada by an openly gay artist.
His highly anticipated third album, The Original High, included the smash-hit Ghost Town, while his fourth studio album, Velvet, was released in 2020.
While Lambert is the first to be announced, more exclusive guest artists will perform on the Australian Idol stage and will be announced in the coming weeks.
Australian Idol airs 7.00 pm Sunday and 7.30 pm Monday and Tuesday on Channel 7 and 7plus.
