For the first time in months, Adam Lambert finally returned to his hometown of San Diego, California. Last Friday, the American Idolfinalist made a stop at his old high school, Mt. Carmel High, where he sang two songs for the crowd and also watched as they put on a show for him…
Adam made his way ontothe school’s stadium track by ridingatop a red convertible, where he was greeted by thousands of roaring fans, cheerleaders, and a marching band. The entire stadium was filled with banners and postersshowing statements of adoration for the hometown hero. “This is so weird,” he said. Adam advised the students to believe in themselves no matter what, and then he serenaded them with Mad World and Black and White.Mayor Jerry Sanders also announced that Friday would be officially declared Adam LambertDay in San Diego.
Apparently, Adam’s talent has always stood out. His fellow classmateBryan Clark said, “He was definitely good. I’m proud of the guy. It’s always good to see people making their dreams happen.” Another supporter, Robin Anderson, said that they came out because people should always support their hometown. She was asked by reporters if she thought Adam might be too wild for the Idol audience. “My 88-year-old mother thinks he should win. And she’s as conservative as they come,” Anderson responded.
Well it sounds like Adam Lambert had an amazing trip and a wonderful welcome home party. Be sure to tune in tomorrow night as the top threesing one song of their choice and one of the judges choice… should be interesting!
