There were millions of disappointed fans all over the world, when it was announced that the hit television series American Idol was coming to an end after the current season is finished. The show has brought us plenty of hugely talented stars, who have gone on to enjoy long and successful careers in the music industry, with many of them talking about the show coming to a close.
Adam Lambert appeared on the eighth season of American Idol back in 2009, going on to finish as the runner-up for that season, behind the winner Kris Allen. Adam has now been talking about seeing the show that launched his career coming to a close, admitting that American Idol was something that the whole country needed when it first came on the air.
Lambert was speaking with the good folks over at Billboard, when he said to them, "It's an end of an era, Idol will always go down in history for what it is and what it did and what it represents for people."
He added, "It came along at a time when I think we, as a country, we needed to come together and we needed to believe in something hopeful and give underdogs a chance and celebrate music and the diversity of music in our country. I think they did a great job, and it's time to pack it up."
These days, as well as focusing on his solo career, Adam Lambert also spends a lot of time working with Queen, with the gang going on their European Tour later in the year. We look forward to seeing it.
