5. Adam Lambert
Rank last year: 16
Mr. Lambert, the 1950s are calling: interestingly, they don’t want their pompadour back. In fact, they’re fully admitting that no one back then managed to make a pompadour look nearly as sexy as you do.
Adam famously didn’t win American Idol, despite dominating the competition all season long – a result widely believed to be the result of American discomfort over Adam’s perceived sexuality. And he probably didn’t do himself any favors with his deliberately-provocative performance at last fall’s American Music Awards. But what makes Adam such a dynamic performer is precisely what sometimes lands him in hot water: his utter refusal to compromise his own unique artistic vision. Now that’s hot.
But the hottest thing about Adam? Under all that hair gel and eyeliner, behind the whips and chains, is obviously a very kind-hearted soul, and maybe just the tiniest touch of geek. Adam, you have a charisma of “18” – and if you’re truly the closet geek we suspect you are, you know exactly what we mean.
