American Idol Producer: Adam Lambert Should Be a Major Star!

by at . Comments

With the talent level low and the contestants so similar, this season of American Idol has been considered a bore by most viewers. Ratings certainly reflect a drop in interest.

For that reason, producers are praying Adam Lambert will deliver a much-needed dose of excitement tonight, as he plays mentor to the remaining finalists.

But Ken Warwick tells Entertainment Weekly that he's also counting on the reverse coming true: he hopes the Lambert's appearance on the show will resurrect this singer's sidetracked career.

"The guy is an incredible talent, and he had an incredible following. And it kind of upsets me that at the moment he’s not doing quite as well," the executive producer said. "I don’t know what possessed him to do what he did at the AMAs, but he’s still struggling to live it down.

"Hopefully... we can start putting him back firmly where he belongs, as a major star. Because the guy is an incredible talent. He genuinely is. And it kind of breaks my heart to see someone with that much talent struggle a bit. So hopefully we can do back for him as he can do for us."

Adam Lambert returns to the stage that made him famous this week.

Aside from mentoring tonight, Lambert will return to the American Idol stage tomorrow.

From there, it's off to the GLAAD awards Saturday evening for another performance. Wrote Adam, regarding the event:

"GLAAD has advocated for out music artists, including myself, and I am proud to be part of the 21st Annual GLAAD Media Awards this year. GLAAD's work to share stories that grow acceptance and understanding about the gay and transgender community is so important in our culture today."

Will tune in to watch Lambert on Idol this week?


Unfortunately, the idol producer knows what he's talking about. Just in my circle of friends and family, after the AMA's, I am now the only person that is looking forward to Adam's appearance tonight. I too was offended by his performance on AMA's, but hoping he doesn't get so carried away again. There were 27 of us that couldn't wait to watch idol last year because of Adam, went to see only him on idol tour, and now I am the lone Adam fan. This sampling proves that on a bigger scale, he lost a large number of followers. Hoping, as the AI producer, this amazing talent can redeem himself.


What is Warwick talking about? Adam's album has only been out since December (4 months ago). Since then: For Your Entertainment Album
US - Gold: January 2010
Canada - Gold: January 2010, Platinum: March 2010
Singapore - Gold: March 2010
New Zealand - Gold: March 2010 Whataya Want From Me Single:

Canada - Double Platinum: March 2010 For Your Entertainment Single

New Zealand - Gold: March 2010


HAHA!! Ive been waiting for some neg press,he is doing too good right now... well this really does not count. honestly guys just watch the show, They will show what he has been doing for the past month. It been going pretty well. I guess Warwick, wanted him to be like Micheal Jackson supernova or something. 1. homophobia
2. Not the typical middle of the road performer, which is why I even noticed the guy.
3. he is doing better that the guy that won idol.
4. His time will come within reason.


@Pam Raymond: Who are you addressing that to? It was the Idol producer who brought up the AMAs and talked about Adam's faltering career.


for_real_tho there you are, haven't seen you for a while.Knew you could not stay away from the awesome that is Lambert.


Not sure what rock you have been under...but there is nothing derailing Adam Lambert's career...he is hotter then ever and will surely achieve all the success and more that is in front of him. He is an incredible talent, and it is got that part right. Really? We still need to talk about the AMA's. That is so yesterday's news. He has a huge following in Asia and Europe and his upcoming European tour will only bolster his sales abroad and here. His small concert venues are sellouts in minutes and he will surely fill larger venues this summer. I haven't seen anything like this kind of following since Michael Jackson or the is borderline hysteria wherever he goes. Adam doesn't need Idol to boost his ratings...they need him!!


He means...."hopefully, we can start cashing in in this huge investment.....where are all those fans & why aren't they buying his music???"

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
