Pre-order Adam Lambert's new CD now!

Pre-sale orders surge for 'American Idol' runner-up Adam Lambert's debut CD

Sometimes coming in second isn't so bad after all.

Season 8 "American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert won't release his debut album until November 24th, but pre-sales of the CD have already jumped to No. 2 on the sales list.

What's even more impressive is that Lambert's record label, RCA, never announced that the disc could be pre-ordered, which means that the boom in sales is due to word of mouth.

Not too shabby for a guy who lost to his former roommate Kris Allen in the finals of "American Idol." Not that Lambert holds a grudge.

In a Rolling Stone interview, Lambert referred to Allen as "the one guy that I found attractive in the whole group on the show ... totally my type – except that he has a wife."

On the album, which is behind only Barbra Steisand's heavily-hyped new jazz CD, Lambert collaborates with Lady Gaga's producer RedOne, Grammy nominated producer and songwriter Max Martin, and One Republic's Ryan Tedder.

Lambert's impressive sales figures follow a trend of "Idol" also-rans topping the charts with their albums. Jennifer Hudson, Clay Aiken and Chris Daughtry all failed to grab "Idol's" top prize, but saw their debut CDs soar to the top of Amazon's sales list.
