Adam Lambert talks about his pride at receiving a Grammy nomination

Past American Idol runner up, Adam Lambert, opens up on his pride at receiving a Grammy nomination.

The impressive vocalist is nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal for ‘Whataya Want From Me’, which features on his 2009 debut album, ‘For Your Entertainment’.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Lambert explains:

“I was awoken by my manager in the morning while in Paris. Much more effective than my usual cup of coffee to wake me up. I was so excited! After our call, I saw that a bunch of friends and family had texted and written emails."

“I hope that at this point, after all the hard work I've done over the past year, the nomination will give me credibility as a true vocalist in the industry, and perhaps help fade some of the stigma that comes from rising to fame on a competition show."
