The National Enquirer reports that after Adam Lambert “bowled over” producers with his ‘American Idol’ performance as a mentor, the show’s executives are convinced he’d be an ideal successor for Simon Cowell when he leaves the show at this season’s end to begin work on the U.S. version of ‘The X Factor’. “They believe he’ll bring a fearless, youthful freshness to the show,” an ‘Idol’ source told the tabloid.
Kimberley Locke Talks About New Season Of ‘American Idol’
April 16, 2010 – Kimberley Locke visited ABC News Now to talk about her new single ‘Strobelight’, what she’s been up to since her ‘American Idol’ season two experience, her picks for this season’s ‘Idol’, feeling the contestants this year are being “a little lazy” and not going for the high notes, and reports that Crystal Bowersox was thinking about leaving the show. “If she knows now that this business is not for her, then I say take it home,” Locke said of Bowersox. “If she wants to miss out. Listen, if I told you I never got homesick I’d be lying to you. I get homesick now… That’s life, and if she’s willing to give up this amazing opportunity that she has, honey rock on. I’m sure the other six will be happy that she’s gone. That’s one less competitor.” The interview video has since been removed.
Adam Lambert attended the 21st Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday (April 17). The ‘American Idol’ season eight runner-up spoke with MTV News on the red carpet, picking his favorites for this season after meeting the singers as their mentor last week.
“There’s some amazing voices this year. I think Crystal [Bowersox], Casey [James], Lee [Dewyze] and Michael [Lynche], for me, those four really stand out as authentic, pure, amazing vocals,” he said. “But everyone was really sweet and really friendly and really receptive. I had a great time mentoring, and I had a really good time putting on my laser show. I got lasers! I was so excited. I was like a little kid.”

“young” is obviously a state of mind. :)

Adam Lambert shows off his ‘strut’ in AOL’s Los Angeles studios for a Sessions live set. In a Q&A, Adam talked about the story behind the album title, working with Pharrell, how fans influenced the album, being influenced by artists like Michael Jackson and Madonna and how he feels about performing with Queen.
Talking about how he came up with the album title ‘Trespassing’, Lambert said, “The album title is ‘Trespassing’ and it’s the title track because to me the song ‘Trespassing’ is like a mission statement. I wrote the song with Pharrell Williams, who is an amazing, great pop producer. I felt that the song kind of summed up what I’m about as an artist and as a person, and I do feel like a trespasser. I feel that not in a literal sense, because I don’t think I’ve broken into an property recently. I feel like I’m very different than the normal dude. I’m pretty eccentric, and as far as the music industry is concerned, I feel like a bit of an outsider. So there’s times that I feel like I’m breaking new ground by breaking in.”
On Pharrell’s role in ‘Trespassing’, Adam said, “One of the main things we talked about which kind of kicked off the song ‘Trespassing’ was different types of discrimination and fitting into the world and finding your own path. I think that’s what ‘Trespassing’ is really all about. It’s about saying, I know I might not be welcome here. I know I’m different. I know that you’re saying keep out, but I’m not going to let that stop me. I’m gonna do what my heart is telling me to do, and do it proudly.”

Adam Lambert caught up with Billboard at Z100’s Jingle Ball concert event last month at Madison Square Garden in New York City, where the ‘American Idol’ season eight runner-up talked about how he puts together his look, looking forward to moving forward after his controversial AMA performance that got him in trouble with ABC, the new albums from fellow ‘Idol’ finalists Allison Iraheta and Kris Allen, getting to sing with Queen and KISS on the ‘Idol’ finale, and what he’s got planned for 2010. Watch it via YouTube below.
Katharine McPhee spoke with the Los Angeles Times in a Q&A, where the ‘American Idol’ season five finalist was asked about fellow ‘Idol’ runner-up Adam Lambert. The 25-year-old said:
I think he probably got a little ahead of himself as far as the American Music Awards. I’m not knocking him for what he did, I just think he should have done it a year down the road when he’s more established as an artist and not just an “Idol.” You have to be cognizant of your place in the business… but it’s hard when you come off that show and you’re the biggest thing since sliced bread, and everyone’s doing everything for you. You lose perspective, so you have to be careful.
