Our congratulations go out to Adam Lambert on his debut album, “For Your Entertainment”, for going gold!
FYE has now sold over 500,000 copies, which marks its status as a gold record. The album debuted at number three on the Billboard Top 100 Chart and hasn’t yet fallen below the top fifty since being introduced.
It also appears that there’s been an effect on new American Idol competitors, as well. This was thought to be brought on by Lambert’s willingness to add his own style and flair to a song. Of the Adam Lambert effect, Kara DioGuardi said, “I think that people were interpreting songs from the get-go in audition week. They weren’t just singing them the way they were sung by the people who originally recorded them. They were kind of taking some risks, and I like that. And maybe that is because of Adam.”
