American Idol fans may know him as the guy who (just barely) lost to Kris Allen in the talent contest's eighth season, but Adam Lambert already had a solid performing career behind him by the time he auditioned for Idol. And no one should be surprised to learn that the dramatic tenor's earlier career was almost entirely in musical theatre. A stage actor since childhood, Lambert starred alongside Val Kilmer in The Ten Commandments: The Musical and got an understudy gig in the Wicked touring company. At his coworkers' prompting, he auditioned for Idol in San Francisco and quickly began winning the judges' praise for his strong and often dramatic renditions of tunes like Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" and Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire." His defeat by the clean-cut Allen for the top slot was bitterly disappointing to some judges and fans, but not so surprising to others, who recognized that Adam "Glambert's" glammy, goth-esque and often flamboyant style is not exactly in line with today's pop charts. But his devoted fan base suggests that his 2009 debut album will be a huge success.

Revenge is Sweeter Tour
Runtime: 1 hr 10 minThe Veronicas hail from Brisbane, Australia, where twin sisters Jess and Lisa Origliasso began working in show business at the age of five. Born on Christmas Day in 1984, Jess and Lisa first performed as the Origliasso Twins, and their appearances at awards shows and sporting events drew the attention of agents and talent agencies. As teenagers, the twins released three teen pop albums under the name Lisa & Jessica, and they began making forays into TV after landing recurring roles in the Australian children's series Cybergirl. After Jess received a guitar as a birthday present in 2002, though, the girls started devoting more time to songwriting, gradually transforming their sound from pop to alternative rock in the process.
