This Adam Lambert Fellow Is Really Quite Talented
Last night, during the results show of “American Idol,” season eight runner-up, Adam Lambert, took the stage to perform an acoustic version of his song “Aftermath.” I didn’t watch much of Lambert’s season of “Idol” but I do recall thinking he had great stage presence and a solid set of pipes. I also appreciated how out and proud he was about his being gay, especially given “Idol”‘s reach and influence — seeing someone like Lambert excel can do much to inspire a young gay teen who maybe feels ostracized at home and in his community. Acceptance is a primary theme in “Aftermath,” but I have to say I was especially impressed by just how good Lambert’s performance was. I know I am late to the party, but I’m officially a fan.
