Adam Lambert waited until after he was crowned runner-up of American Idol's eighth season to reveal that he was gay (which came as a surprise to almost no one). Since then, he's become the first openly gay man to top the Billboard 200 album chart with his second album, "Trespassing. " Now, he's lending his support to the push toward marriage equality in Maryland. On Tuesday, Lambert headlines a fundraising concert for Marylanders for Marriage Equality at the 9:30 Club in D.C. Lambert was eager to discuss his feelings on the bill, his identity as a gay artist and whether or not marriage is in the cards for him. Do you have plans to get married?

(To view photos from last night's show, visit the Darkroom's gallery .) True story: I was watching "American Idol" one night during the season that Adam Lambert was competing. I said to my wife - Mrs. Brown will vouch for this - “that guy should sing with Queen.” The band was casting about for a new frontman after ending its five-year partnership with former Free/Bad Company/The Firm/The Law singer Paul Rodgers, and Lambert was enlivening another dreary season of Idol with his three-octave range, upper-register confidence and flamboyant stage presence.

"American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert is anything but subtle. When the 27-year-old singer made his "Idol" debut, audiences couldn't help but notice Lambert's spiky mop of devilishly disheveled hair, his dark guyliner and darker fingernail polish. But Lambert wasn't about to tone himself down just to appeal to more people. And because of that, he never thought he'd get too far on the show. "I remember getting into the competition and feeling like, 'Oh, I hope I crack the top 10,' " he said.

American Idol's two-night finale starts at 8 p.m. Tuesday on WBFF, Channel 45, and the choices couldn't be more distinct. A vote for Adam Lambert or Kris Allen might say as much about us as it does either of them. KRIS ALLEN We all know by now that American Idol is a TV show on the hunt for a future pop star. But notice the order there. Idol is a TV show first and a talent scout second. Adam Lambert may have buzz, but so did washed-up Season 5 winner Taylor Hicks. Remember him? Probably not. Yes, Lambert makes great TV, but can he make great pop music?

TV Shark Week: If you're still planning that beach vacation, you may want to avoid Discovery this week. The channel's annual celebration of blood, teeth and more teeth is back for its 22nd year. Look for Marylander Andy Dehart as he hosts several shows, including Shark After Dark. I think it's safe to assume midnight snacks are involved. CONCERT American Idols Live: Idol has always been campy, but last season some of the contestants actually embraced the cheese factor and owned it. So this latest tour should make for a particularly guilty guilty pleasure.
