From 2005-2008 and up until he auditioned for American Idol, Adam performed as the understudy for the role of Fiyero, in the national tour and Los Angeles productions of Wicked.
Adam was a contestant on the eighth season of American Idol (2009) and auditioned in San Francisco. It was his final year to try out because of his age and he took a calculated risk, quitting his steady job performing in Wicked in order to be considered.
On May 20, 2009, Adam came in second as the runner-up on American Idol.
Memorable performances include Adam singing with Kiss and also with Queen on the finale.

With respect to Adam’s performance, Brian May of the legendary Rock Group” Queen” said:
“I have to say I was completely blown away … it’s truly sensational. In fact it’s so obviously a number one smash, any bookie would be mad to take bets on it.
I am not kidding. I’m not easily moved to jelly by male vocalists … but Adam’s voice reaches out with sensitivity, depth, maturity, and awesome range and power which will make jaws drop all around the world.
Its an awesome performance. No doubt about it. The world of Rock has a bright new star.”
