Celebrity of the Year Finalist #5: Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga!

by at . Comments

As 2010 draws near, The Hollywood Gossip staff looks back on the year that was, honoring finalists for our prestigious, 3rd Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These stars have given us their best, their worst, their off-the-wall antics and in the case of these two, an immediate, but lasting impact on the music world.

It's time for THG to pay tribute to this greatness.

Yesterday, the '09 countdown featured lots of Tiger Woods mistresses at #6. Today, we present Celebrity of the Year Finalist #5: Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga!

The year in music belonged to these two rising stars.

He started the year as an unknown; made headlines in February for his flamboyant acts; finished second on American Idol; and has to already be considered one of the most successful singers in the show's history.

Adam Lambert hasn't merely made a name for himself in 2009, he's created a cult following in fewer than 12 months.

Hated by some and embraced by others, the crooner managed to handle his sexuality with both subtle grace AND over-the-top exploits. Adam has more in common with Lady GaGa than unique fashion taste and controversial performances.

Both are well-spoken in interviews and deadly serious about their craft.

Lambert made out with a man at the American Music Awards, but 2009 will be best remembered as the year he made off with the title of Most Fascinating Singer Alive.

As for his female counterpart, Lady Gaga produced a half-dozen hits this year, proving herself so much more than a gimmick or flamboyant flash in the musical pan.

Not that there was a shortage of flamboyance.

She dressed as scrap metal, a gimp, a button, a chain-smoking rabbit, and a Kermit the frog doll collage. She simulated her own bloody murder on stage. She was even rumored to be a hermaphrodite after one revealing display.

We love her for every moment of it. That's just Lady Gaga for you.

It's only fitting that these dynamic performers share the #5 spot on our end-of-year countdown. Click to enlarge pics of Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga below ...

Clearly you know from whence you speak on this scbuejt. With that said, I'd like to tell you I admire your writing style. Your content is also very interesting and useful. I enjoyed this article.

Thanks for the coverage on Lambert & Gaga. Love them or hate them, their stunning talent is undeniable. FUSE's interview w/ Gaga was the final opening of my eyes to her brilliance. Glad Lambert gets nice coverage here. E News, following New Year's Eve, gave a run down of various events & celebrity parties and such, and NOT just A-listers either, and didn't mention Gridlock (unless I missed it, but I don't think so). What's up with THAT?? And thank goodness for YouTube and the internet - Lambert's Gridlock performance excellent, as is his CD. Worth the purchase people, pick it up! You won't be sorry.

Refreshingly retro glamb visualists with the added bonus of both having great vocal capability (especislly Adam) and charismatic personalities. All hail the return of ENTERTAINMENT! Us "old fogies" are sooo bored with 20+ years of boring earnestness and have been yearning for some glits in our lives again!

I am so excited that 2 fabulous people were voted #5. Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga are unique and bring so much to the music business. They have outrageous vocals and perform brillantly. So much excitment in their performances. You can never be bored. Touring together would bring sold out shows all over the world. Best of Luck to both of them.
