ADAM LAMBERT: FULL-CIRCLE MOMENTS AND FIRSTS

First American Idol Contestant To Return As A Mentor

On April 13, 2010 Adam returned to American Idol Season 9 for the first of many times and became the first ever contestant in the history of the show to become a mentor. He spent time with the contestants in Las Vegas in preparation for "Elvis Week".

He later performed "Whattaya Want From Me" during the live show on April 14, leading to another, slightly less important First - "First use of lasers on the American Idol stage".
