Adam Lambert 'Owes Everything' To American Idol
The singer praises the show that made him famous before his return tomorrow...
Now, the Idol runner up will offer his words of wisdom to this series' finalists and will return to the competition this week to mentor the remaining eight wannabes.
The For Your Entertainment singer told Beatweek magazine: "I think Idol's amazing. It's a phenomenon. As an artist, that's the reason why I wanted to audition, because of the type of exposure you could get and how you get to challenge yourself every week to try to make a song your own."
"When they asked me to be a mentor I thought, 'Cool, that sounds great.' When I watched the past couple of years before auditioning for it, I always had ideas, I always had my own kind of opinions about the contestants."
He added: "I owe everything that’s happened thus far to Idol and to the audience that supported me on it."
Lambert will mentor the top 8 on this Tuesday's show and will return to the Idol stage on Wednesday's results episode to perform new single, Whataya Want From Me.
