Glamberts Rejoice As Adam Lambert Trespasses On Chart History
Way to go Adam!
It looks like a whole new version of an Idol showdown as Adam Lambert‘s Trespassing grabs the number one spot on the Billboard charts, knocking fellow American Idol alum Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away lower on the chart. Lambert thanked his fans this morning posting a grateful tweet, “WOW!
#Trespassing made its debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 this week! Thank you to the Glamily for helping me make HISTORY!”.
Lambert’s Trespassing is the second album from the 2008 Idol runner up, following his 2009 debut, For Your Entertainment. Released last week, Trespassing has already sold 77,000 copies and counting. Not only is this Adam’s first number one album, this is also the first time an American Idol contestant gone pro has risen above another on the charts, as stated by Idolator.com.
This is a huge accomplishment for the Indiana born singer, who is the first openly-gay performer to top the US charts, according to Idolator.com. Dabbling in the waters of musical theater Lambert toured with the European production of Hair and was an understudy for the role of “Fiyero” in Wicked. Lucky for us, Lambert pulled away from the theater and focused himself on becoming a musician.
Showcasing his unique style, Lambert has given the music industry a run for their money as he continues to succeed post Idol. Both criticized and praised for his flamboyant style, Lambert proves that being yourself is all that matters.
