Adam Lambert wins Best New Artist accolade in 2009 Z100 Z Awards

Atop his other accomplishments for 2009, Adam Lambert has another to add to that list - and it didn't happen until 2010.

New York's Z100 radio station is one of the most popular in the city, boasting the hottest new tracks on the air as well as a radio show by American Idol's own Ryan Seacrest.

2009's fan-voted Z Awards included categories such as Hottie of the Year and Favorite Movie, but Lambert's only inclusion was Best New Artist. Going against Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Ke$ha and Idol winner Kris Allen, Lambert took the crown with a staggering 50.06 percent of total votes. The other percentages break down as follows:

Adam Lambert: 50.06%
Justin Bieber: 21.22%
Lady Gaga: 16.17%
Kris Allen: 6.40%
Ke$ha: 6.15%

Lambert himself announced the win via his Twitter (@adamlambert), and the full results of the Z Awards are available on Z100's web site.

    Yes, I agree 100%. Adam is the only artist I remember from 2009 as being the hottest one out there and alwasy looked forward to what he would do next or what his music would be like! I bought his cd and love every single song on it which is something I have never done before! Ususally you get a cd for one or two songs! Whoever doesnt have it needs to get it now cuz they are missing out! Congrats Adam!!
