Adam Lambert is our (theBestArts) favorite performer from American Idol 2009. This video contains excerpts from a number of Adam's performances prior to American Idol (see song list below).

View the complete (and higher quality) versions of each of these videos (plus many others from Adam) at http://www.theBestArts.com/AdamLamber...

Adam's offical website is now up:

We have a website page that includes the full videos (not just audio) of each of Adam's Idol performances:

Most viewers were introduced to Adam during his Idol audition, when he sang 20 seconds of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." We think you'll be impressed by the wide range of styles he performs in this montage.

Judges loved his Hollywood Week group performance of "Some Kind of Wonderful". After his performance, new judge Kara told him "You're an incredible singer. You are." Later in the competition, Kara said "Your vocal technique and ability is outrageous... Who has a range like that?"

According to http://www.IdolRanges.com Adam has the widest full-voice range of any performer who's appeared on the show. (Interestingly, he ties with Chris Daughtry.) In 2009, however, nobody else came close. Adam's range was six notes or more wider than every other contestant. I was somewhat surprised to learn that Adam sang lower on the show than Anoop or Michael Sarver - and only one half step above Danny's lowest note.

Adam is best known for his long-term role as understudy for Fiyero in the LA cast of "Wicked" and his role in the 2006 film "The Ten Commandments: the Musical" where he sang one solo.
