Despite it being his debut, Adam had some major star power contributing to the record. Lady Gaga gave him a funky song she previously recorded called "Fever," while "Whataya Want from Me" was originally recorded for Pink's fifth album but didn't make the cut. Meanwhile Weezer's Rivers Cuomo cowrote "Pick U Up" with Lambert. Bruno Mars has in fact worked with Adam, but on his sophomore LP, 'Trespassing.'

'American Idol' contestants were typically barred from speaking to the media until they'd been eliminated, which made Lambert's much-discussed sexuality an unanswered question come the Season 8 finale. "Right after the finale, I almost started talking about it to the reporters, but I thought, 'I'm going to wait for 'Rolling Stone,' that will be cooler,'" he told the mag later. "I didn't want the Clay Aiken thing and the celebrity-magazine bullshit. I need to be able to explain myself in context...I find it very important to be in control of this situation." Right on, brother.

What was the breaking point that made Adam want to leave his original record label?

Likely due to the success of his touring with Queen, Adam was told that the only release that his label RCA Records (who broke him into the mainstream pop world) would support was an album of '80s covers. "I have a lot of respect for the label's opinions, so I sat with the idea and started researching the time period," he told 'Billboard.' "But it just wasn't resonating with me. It felt forced." A day after he left, Warner Bros. Records called him up with a deal.

Yup, Kris Allen...his roommate and eventual Top 2 competitor! He admitted this during a 'Rolling Stone' cover story, "I was like, 'Oh, shit, they put me with the cute guy,'" he said. "Dis­tracting! He's the one guy that I found attractive in the whole group on the show: nice, nonchalant, pretty and totally my type." Sorry, Seacrest.
