Adam Lambert is hoping that his recent Grammy nomination gives him more credibility as a solo artist.
The singer has been nominated for the Best Male Pop Vocal Performance award, for his single Whataya Want From Me.
“I was so excited!” Adam told The Hollywood Reporter. “I knew the song would be a key track on my album.
“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.”
The 53rd Grammy Awards are scheduled to take place February 13, 2011.
