Adam Mitchel Lambert (born January 29, 1982) is an American singer and songwriter. Since 2009, he has sold over 3 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.[4][5] Lambert is known for his dynamic vocal performances that fuse his theatrical training with modern and classic genres.[6]

Lambert rose to fame in 2009 after finishing as runner-up on the eighth season of American Idol.[7] Later that year, he released his debut album For Your Entertainment, which debuted at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200.[8] The album spawned several singles, including "Whataya Want from Me", for which he received a Grammy nomination for "Best Male Pop Vocal Performance".[9]

In 2012, Lambert released his second studio album Trespassing. The album premiered at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, making him the first openly gay artist to top the album charts. In 2015, Lambert released his third album The Original High, which debuted at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200 and produced the single "Ghost Town".[10]

Alongside his solo career, Lambert has collaborated with rock band Queen as lead vocalist for Queen + Adam Lambert since 2011, including several worldwide tours from 2014 to 2022. Their first album, Live Around the World, released in October 2020, and debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart.[11]

In late 2019, Lambert founded the non-profit Feel Something Foundation, anchoring his ongoing philanthropy, LGBTQ+ and human rights activism. Its particular focus is support for organizations and projects that directly and disproportionately impact the LGBTQ+ community, including education and the arts, mental health, suicide prevention and homelessness.[12]
