Nervous Nellie Eaten Alive By Stage
Monday, March 15, 2010 17:16 GMTNORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) The lights, camera, and action were too much to handle for one American Idol cast-off.
Shy guy Alex Lambert was voted off last Thursday (Mar. 11) and admits to having wicked stage fright on the show.
Every time the spotlight hit him, the newbie performer would panic.
It makes sense though, because before Idol, Lamberts biggest show was in front of 40 people at a coffee shop all of whom were his friends or family.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, fellow eliminee Todrick Hall thinks his extensive performing background may have been his Achilles heel.
Because he was pegged as a theater kid and dancer from the start, it was hard to take him seriously as a singer.
Moving forward, however, the jack-of-all-trades is using his many talents to actively petition for a role on Glee.
He has full support from judge Ellen DeGeneres.
Idol airs Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays on FOX.
