A competitor in the seventh season of Israel's 'A Star is Born' quit the singing contest on Wednesday after it was revealed that he had lied about his age, pretending to be sixteen-and-a-half. The Tapuz Web site revealed Tuesday that Adam was actually born in October 1993, making him 15, below the minimum age requirement for the show of 16. Adam admitted that he had lied, and quit the contest.
