Adam Lambert made a little girl’s dream come true this week when she got to meet her idol and interview him like a true journalist. Seven year old Erin Korcz adores Adam and has since she first saw him on American Idol three years ago. Erin and her mother Chantal are avid American Idol fans and have not missed a season. They recorded every episode of season 8 and Erin would stand in front of the television imitating Adam. She was in awe – there was not one episode that she missed. Adam became a daily topic in their house and Chantal would even use him as discipline tool. She would tell Erin, “Go to bed or you can’t watch Adam tomorrow.” Chantal says it worked like a charm!
Chantal could not get enough of Adam either and downloaded pictures of him and fed every story she read about him to her family. Her husband thought she was nuts – a 32-year-old with a teenage like crush! When the final show of season 8 aired Chantal woke up at 2:00am (they are in South Africa) to watch it live and recorded it for Erin. Erin has watched that episode more times than Chantal can remember. Erin’s brother Ethan just turned five and she has convinced him that if he wants to look hot, he has to wear black nail polish and eye liner and learn to dance like Adam.
When Erin heard Adam was coming to South Africa she asked her mom if they could let him stay with them and was devastated to know that she probably wouldn’t get to meet or see him. But as luck would have it, Chantal was able to get them in to his press conference. She thought Erin would be shy and scared to chat with him but was right up there with all the press taking pictures like a real journalist. She came prepared with a picture for him to sign and a letter that read: “Dear Adam, I like you. Love Erin xoxoxoxoxox” with hearts all over. When they asked if anyone had questions she went right up to the front and asked if he could sign it. He invited her onto the stage and signed her picture and then she said, “Oh I almost forgo,t I wrote you a letter.” She gave it to him and he read it aloud. When he finished he said, “I like you too and you are cute” to which she replied, “no you cute!” Then Adam asked for a hug and Erin was very obliging of course!
As a proud mom, Chantal snapped photos and sadly did not get a picture with Adam, but Erin was ecstatic. Fortunately, the family was able to go to Adam’s concert and Erin loved the show. Chantal says that this has been a dream come true and they are now even bigger fans. Erin asked her mom if she gave Adam her cell number so he can call to chat with her, but she told her, “I wish I had babe, but I forgot!” Erin has told everyone she is friends with Adam and she has taken her photo to school to show her friends.

Obviously Adam loves his fans and is great with children. What do you think of him making Erin’s dream come true?
