Idol castoff Lambert cast in reality series


Alex Lambert, 19, who was booted off American Idol, has been cast alongside Miley Cyrus’ ex-boyfriend, Justin Gaston, on Idol producer Simon Fuller’s new Internet reality series about six artists struggling to make it while living together. Model Giglianne Braga and actors Kara Killmer, Amanda Phillips and Ben Elliott are the other four cast members on the show, called If I Can Dream. When Lambert failed to make the cut for the American Idol finals and the tour, his fans sent Fuller a 20,000-signature petition, which must have made him take a second look at the teen, who was in tears when cut from the show. Lambert spoke with about his time on Idol, admitting he was closest with fellow contestant Siobhan Magnus. “We text every once in a while,” he reveals. “She was one of my best friends on the show. Everyone else was spastic and crazy and always wanted to do something, and me and Siohban would sit and eat for like three hours.”

    He’s so cute, I was so sorry when he didn’t get picked for the top 12.

    lol, at first I thought (from the title) it meant ADAM Lambert, now wouldn’t that be an interesting reality show!

    I didn’t think he should’ve been voted off of American Idol, but it is up to the people who vote. So, good for him for getting another chance, this time on “If I Can Dream”!!

    I hope he gets a show on TV, not a reality show but a real one. Maybe on Disney.
