Adam Lambert‘s killer new disc ‘Trespassing ‘ debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart this week. Congrats to Glambert on the big bow. While a No. 1 is always impressive, it’s historical in his case, as he is the first openly gay male artist to top the chart, according to Rolling Stone.

 

So a dual congratulations is in order for the former ‘American Idol‘ runner up.

Interestingly enough, ‘Idol’ alum Carrie Underwood enjoyed a two-week stint at No. 1 this month but was bumped off the top spot by Lambert. With two former contestants jockeying for position and both bowing at No. 1, it proves that the show is still making stars out of its hopefuls.

Tune in tonight to find out if Phillip Phillips or Jessica Sanchez wins (and feel free to cast your vote here). Something tells us regardless of who is named Season 11 winner, both will have careers akin to those of Lambert and Underwood.

Again, congrats to Glambert on becoming the first openly out male musician to top the chart. That’s a huge victory for the LGBT community and they are well-represented by the singer. We hope that Glambert and his BF are celebrating the good news!
