Adam Lambert is one of the best American Idol contestants ever. He brings to the stage a charisma like Elvis Presley. Not, like Elvis, not like an Elvis impersonator, but instead the same quality in his performances that attracted people to Elvis. I also see in Adam a style that is like Freddy Mercury of Queen. He has that vocal range and many of Queens songs were ballads which is Adam’s forte. I think Adam is headed for a huge and successful career in the music industry.
I expect to see Adam, heading some Broadway stage shows as well. But not before he goes on tour to sell out auditoriums across the United States. I think he is going to be bigger than Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood or David Cook.
If you didn’t catch Adam’s performance on last Tuesday’s American Idol (they ran over schedule) you can watch it at this link or going to http://www.rickey.org/?p=13956
