Last night at the Out Magazine Out 100 party, Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Adam Lambert. The glam-encrusted American Idol standout knows a thing or two about competititve singing, and when asked to pick a fave on The X Factor USA, he said:

“I haven’t been tuning in as much as I should have been, unfortunately. I tune in here and there, but I think that Astro kid is a star for sure. He’s got that ‘it’ thing.”

"That 'it' thing" is what Simon and the judges call The X Factor! We have to imagine being at the party prevented Adam from watching the elimination episode as it aired, since in that very episode, Astro was slightly tarnishing his legacy with some pouts and more than a few sulks. We bet, though, Adam, who has had his own share of adversity, would still be in his corner.

Here's to veterans of the reality wars having each other's backs.
