RE: Adam Lambert
Adam has been in the "struggling" artist era of his career, something Kelly hasn't been in. (When she had the "My December" issue, she was already a superstar) and he's also been niche pop. I think that's all that is being said.

Kelly had a very different road.

And as much as I agree that being on tour with Adam didn't help Allison, that's because of her label failing her, and anyone on that tour would have already known who Allison was and would have bought her album, had they wanted it. (As opposed to Haley being from a different season.) Also, Adam's fans also started a petition to have Allison as part of the full tour instead of just half. (And that ended up happening.)

It's not surprising that he split with 19R. Eventually, the successful idols (well, all idols really) split with their original team because it's just not to their benefit to stay with them.

Ultimately it might be the best for Adam (just like it will likely be the best for Haley and others).

19 Recordings is just shell company that allows 19 to get a share of the artists royalties since Idol is performing the A&R function and finding the artists.


Adam's got an incredible voice and he's a smart guy. I'm sure he'll land on his feet. If nothing else comes up right away, he could front "Queen" for a bit longer. Brian May and Roger Taylor would probably be thrilled about that.

RE: Adam Lambert
I think he's still with RCA so that isn't an issue.

He'll be fine. He's not hugely selling, and the last album didn't do to well on radio, but he's still sells pretty well comparatively to other artists. he should be fine.

RE: Adam Lambert
Not for awhile....Not since 2009, Midnight
Quote:Queen and Paul Rodgers officially split up without animosity on 12 May 2009
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_(band)

Lambert performed with Queen last year in the UK, Poland and Russia

Quote:Queen + Adam Lambert would play two shows at the Hammersmith Apollo, London on 11 and 12 July 2012. Both shows sold out within 24 hours of tickets going on open sale. A third London date was scheduled for 14 July. On 30 June, Queen + Lambert performed in Kiev, Ukraine at a joint concert with Elton John for the Elena Pinchuk ANTIAIDS Foundation. Queen also performed with Lambert on 3 July 2012 at Moscow's Olympic Stadium, and on 7 July 2012 at the Municipal Stadium in Wroclaw, Poland



Paul Rodgers, a great vocalist, a frontman and solo artist with quite a Rock and Roll history all his own (fronting Bad Co., Free, and the Firm), was a surprising choice to front Queen, IMO. I watched some of their performances with him as lead. While, he gave it a good try, Rodgers' style lacked the bombast and grandeur as a Queen front man and was not a great fit for many of Mercury's songs..... Lambert, although, no "Freddie Mercury" felt a better fit IMO. Rodgers performances lacked the 'Front Man spectacle' that Freddie brought.


Quote:Queen and their temporary new singer Adam Lambert – a pairing that makes a good deal more sense than the earlier incarnation of Queen and blues-rock belter Paul Rodgers – were scheduled to make their British debut at the Sonisphere festival, but when that was cancelled they hastily booked three nights in Hammersmith. Thus, what was conceived as an outdoor show was brought indoors with all the trimmings intact, including fireworks, pyrotechnics and a lightshow designed to be seen for miles. The result? A spectacle of such overblown majesty that, somewhere, Freddie Mercury must have been chuckling approvingly.

Say what you want about Lambert, 2012 was HUGE for his International outlook....These appearances with Queen, standing in for the Iconic Freddie Mercury, and pulling it off? (somewhat...he's still not my thing, but it's hard to not acknowledge how good this was for him).

IMO the odds were stacked against Adam breaking the Idol bubble after his season. After great effort, the growth of his popularity outside the bubble, heck outside the US, is undeniable

Again, not a fan... Am not a fan of his high notes while I've listened to and enjoyed Durbin's songs, I can see why Durbin gets annoyed when someone brings up the comparison, their high notes are not, in anyway, similar. I can't name one Lambert song I've listened to all the way through....

BUT, as an outsider to the Idol history/clan wars/Post Idol hang ups people have with them...... the little I take notice of Adam, he has almost always sounded thoughtful and intelligent when he speaks, had a harder climb than most because of his persona, his genre, and his sexual preference... In addition to having the "Idol Stigma"?

The gains he has made, despite obstacles, are significant and impressive, IMO.

RE: Adam Lambert
I've always loved Adam! I love his 1st album, but never heard his 2nd one. Almost got to see him a few times in concert but the shows were too far away for me to get to.

Haley gets mentioned in the article:
19 Entertainment still represents a slew of Idol alums, including season 10's James Durbin, Casey Abrams and Haley Reinhart and season 11's Colton Dixon, Jessica Sanchez and winner Phillip Phillips, among others.
