The first one is the official audio interview. He’s VERY articulate and he certainly knows how to talk, listen to this:
You can read below on the second interview conducted by American Idol with Adam, Allison and Kris on March 2nd, 2009. Below is Adam’s section of the interview:
While Adam Lambert realizes he makes a big impression with his rock star look, he assured us during the interview what we see on the show is actually his “daily street wear.” But he also realizes the importance of being memorable, and since his performance the other night was his first chance to really present himself, he “upped the fashion kick a little bit.” Adam says he has been a fan of the show since the start, but also likes the fact that he can’t really compare himself to any of the former Idols, and he thinks this individuality will help him in the long run.
The one hurdle Adam has had to really overcome since being on the show, especially in the eyes of the judges, is his theatrical nature and background. He doesn’t really consider their comments about his Broadway background to be a negative. As he put it:
“Simon kind of makes it seems derogatory, but when you think about it in the pop music scene right now a lot of the big artists are going a very theatrical route. There’s lots of camp and costumes – that’s kind of an angle right now in the scene. So I kind of think it’s time for something like that.”
Adam even admits that this background has prepared him for the rigors of Idol, as it has helped him to be able to sing under any condition. But he wants people to know that this is just a small facet of who he is as a performer. As Adam so frankly put it:
“I’m not going for a Broadway sound. But the cool thing is that this is finally allowing me to be myself. I mean, I don’t listen to show tunes in my spare time, I can assure you. The show tune thing, the musical theater things, was just kind of the way that I was paying the bills.”
Simon was particularly hard on Adam after his performance of “Satisfaction”. While he admitted there were moments of brilliance, he also said that there were some “excruciatingly bad parts.” When asked about this, Adam said he explained it pretty perfectly with what he said on the show by saying that music is quite subjective. As he explained, “Obviously I’m a risk taker. I kind of feel like I’m not easy listening.You know what I mean? I’m not going to be always the most digestible thing for everybody across the board.” That doesn’t mean he’s going to take his decisions on the show lightly. Adam says he will really listen to the judges, and he even has a strategy in mind. As he put it, strategy is half the competition.
