It’s only appropriate that “American Idol” finalist Adam Lambert‘s “E! True Hollywood Story” aired during the 2010 American Music Awards. One year ago on the AMAs, Glambert made headlines with a controversial performance of “For Your Entertainment.”
His THS starts off with home movies and interviews with his family. It’s adorable to see Glambert as a red-haired, freckle-faced junior high-age kid. Over shots of his awkward years, he talks about figuring out his own sexuality and how hard it was. But he has the two most awesome parents in the world, apparently, because they were onto it before he ever said a word and they helped him with it.
There are interviews with various vocal coaches and theater colleagues. No one has a bad thing to say about him. In fact, his high school drama teacher kept a prop he made for “Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
But after high school, Glambert didn’t stick with college and instead went a little crazy with the European tour of “Hair,” where he explored his sexuality and experimented with drugs. He reeled it back in a bit for “Wicked,” but dropped that because he wanted to be a rock star. When that proved to be more difficult than he anticipated, he got back into “Wicked.”
And then came “American Idol.” Judge Randy Jackson gives an interview comparing Glambert to “Robert Pattinson meets Freddie Mercury.” They relive his time on the show, particularly the way Kris Allen kinda snuck in there to win.
The THS moves on to the “Idol” tour, where apparently fans were throwing sex toys, thongs and bras on stage while Glambert was performing. The special goes on to discuss the “first” album released by Hi-Fi despite Adam’s objections, his advice from Madonna and his American Music Awards performance
What did you think, Glambert fans?
