In addition to Lambert, the program will feature interviews with his mother Leila; father Eber; close friends and music journalists Anne Powers and Vanessa Griforiadis; and "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson, among others. Lambert will also provide exclusive photos and videos for the special.
There will also be stories from Lambert's childhood in North San Diego County, CA, and his days as a cruise ship performer; the revelation while attending the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert that led to his "Idol" auditions; and discussion of how he has dealt with his sexuality, both personally and publicly.
According to E! notes, "Adam Lambert has traveled far since his days as a freckle faced, red-headed kid playing Linus in his school production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Along the way, he's pushed boundaries, reinvented glam-rock and transformed himself into a universal sex symbol. The most beloved runner-up in 'American Idol' history shares his journey to stardom in his own words."
