Adam Lambert top Idol earner of 2015 | Forbes

06 Jan 2016


American Idol is entering its final season, but the stars it has minted in the past are burning bright as ever–and, lately, none more than Adam Lambert.

The Season 8 runner-up climbs to the top of our list for the first time, pulling in a career-high $10 million. Lambert’s earnings were buoyed by cash accumulated while playing arena shows as the frontman of legendary glam rock band Queen.

“Adam used the launching pad of American Idol very well to have a successful recording career,” his co-manager Martin Kirkup told FORBES two years ago, before offering a spot-on prognostication: “I think the main part of his career still lies ahead of him.”
