With his provocative looks, electrifying stage presence, and powerful vocals, "American Idol" (Fox, 2002- ) season eight runner-up Adam Lambert emerged as one of the competition's most original artists. Adam Mitchel Lambert was born on Jan. 29, 1982 in Indianapolis, IN. Shortly after he was born, the family moved to Rancho Peñasquitos in San Diego, CA. Lambert's earliest music memory was listening to his father's large collection of classic rock albums, and singing along to an Elvis Presley karaoke tape. At 10, he joined a children's musical theater, took voice lessons, and started listening to various musicals. Lambert took his passion for performing all the way to high school, where he was in the drama club and in a jazz band. As a teen, Lambert appeared in local productions of "Hello, Dolly!" (1964), "Camelot" (1960) and played Captain Hook in "Peter Pan" (1950), among many others. At 19, he toured with Anita Mann Productions and worked on a cruise line for almost a year. When he returned home, Lambert moved immediately to Los Angeles, where he landed parts in several musical productions, including "The Ten Commandments: The Musical" (2004), as the Hebrew army leader, Joshua. By this time, having embraced the idea that he was going to be a rock star, Lambert began wearing nail polish and eyeliner on stage. For three years beginning in 2005, Lambert nabbed his biggest role so far - the understudy of the role of Fiyero in the national tour and Los Angeles productions of the hit musical "Wicked" (2003).
