Before becoming a front-runner in the eighth season of American Idol, Adam Lambert made his name in the theater world, performing alongside Val Kilmer in Ten Commandments: The Musical. The California native parlayed his theater background into a multi-month run on American Idol in 2009. Lambert's dramatic tenor vocals, neo-goth flair, and eclectic arrangements made him a critical favorite. Although he ultimately lost by a slim margin, Lambert was praised by the American Idol judges, who all but guaranteed him a successful recording career. Released in November 2009, his debut album, For Your Entertainment, sold nearly 200,000 copies during its first week. The five-song EP Acoustic Live! arrived in December 2010, followed by 2011's CD/DVD Glam Nation Live and 2012's full-length sophomore album, Trespassing. ~ Andrew Leahey
