Early Life

In Indianapolis, Indiana, on January 29, 1982, Adam Mitchel Lambert was born. Adam’s father, Eber, was a program manager at Novatel Wireless while his mother, Leila, worked as a dental hygienist during Adam’s formative years.

However, Leila later changed her profession to interior design. After the family relocated to San Diego, California, Lambert’s younger brother, Neil, was born. Adam’s mother is Jewish, and as a youngster, he attended Hebrew school.

Professional production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” “Peter Pan,” “Hello, Dolly,” and “Grease” saw Lambert’s professional acting debut at the age of nine, when he started acting in plays with the Metropolitan Educational Theatre network.

Adam participated in the school’s jazz band, the chorus, and the plays while a student at Mount Carmel High School. After graduation, he relocated to Orange County to enroll in California State University, Fullerton but dropped out after only five weeks so that he could concentrate on his job. He then moved to Los Angeles.


At the age of 19, Lambert worked for 10 months as a performer on a cruise ship. Two years later, he was hired for a European tour of “Hair.” Adam starred as Joshua in Val Kilmer’s “The Ten Commandments: The Musical” at the Kodak Theatre in 2004.

The following year, he was hired as an ensemble member and Fiyero’s stand-in in a touring production of “Wicked” (he reprised these roles in a 2007 Los Angeles production). The judges frequently praised Lambert during his participation on the eighth season of “American Idol” in 2009, and Simon Cowell even gave him a standing ovation for his rendition of “Mad World.”

Adam has remained one of the most well-liked “American Idol” finalists despite finishing second to Kris Allen. MTV named him fifth on their list of “The 10 Greatest “American Idol” Contestants of All Time” in 2009.

Following his stint on “American Idol,” Lambert released his debut album, “For Your Entertainment,” in November 2009. The album featured the international hits “Whataya Want from Me” and “If I Had You.”
