Adam Lambert back in Singapore
Like much of the world, Singapore has become obsessed with TV talent shows like American Idol. It seems that reality TV has the drama and suspense that transcends any language or cultural divides across the world. Everybody loves the surprises and the shocks that come along the way, and they travel on the journey with their favourite artists through the weeks of competition.
Everybody who enters the show knows that this huge level of interest across the globe can be a great springboard for a career in popular music, and you only have to look at previous winners like Kelly Clarkson and Jordin Sparks for inspiration. Another contestant who has who has really translated his public profile on the show into huge success internationally is Adam Lambert.
Lambert is known for his stint on the American Idol programme in Season 8 where he finished runner up to Kris Allen in an extremely close match-up. Ever since he completed the show he has had a great affinity with his fans in Singapore. The American crooner is particularly known for his flamboyant dress sense and his voice which has an impressive multi-octave range. One accolade which stands out in his career so far is his 2011 nomination for a Grammy Award, in the category of Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. Sadly, he fell just short of the winner's podium once more.
The glam-rock singer first visited Singapore in 2010 for an exclusive, invitation-only Fan Event which was held in the warm and welcoming destination of Resorts World Sentosa. Around this time he had just released his debut album which was received positively in multiple countries. The biggest hits from the album were the tracks "For Your Entertainment", "Whataya Want from Me" and "If I Had You".
In 2013 Adam Lambert will return to Singapore for the third time having previously participated in the live concert before the F1 Grand Prix in 2010. But what makes this return special is that this is the first time you will be able to see him in concert in a stand-alone show in The Star Theatre, March 8th.
