Adam Lambert to Judge American Idol Season 12?

by at . Comments

Jennifer Lopez might be out - and a former fan favorite could be in.

With rumors once again swirling around the exit of J. Lo, and with the contracts of all three American Idol judges up, E! News quotes an insider who says Adam Lambert is under consideration as a Season 12 judge.

"They have been talking about Adam for over a month," this Idol insider claims. "He personifies the show, and will be a popular choice right from the start. He knows what it's like to be on the receiving end of the judges' comments, he has a human touch, and they know they can't go wrong if they bring him on. He would be able to bring a unique perspective to the show. People love him."

American Idol is coming off a disappointing season, ratings-wise, and the source adds that Randy Jackson and Steve Tyler aren't necessarily guaranteed to return, either. The Aerosmith singer's plans are "up in the air," while:

"Randy is great, but he's part of the old Idol. They want to keep the soul of the show but have a new look, and for that reason he may well not be part of the new line up."

Do you wanna see Adam Lambert as an American Idol judge?

I love Adam Lambert, some people do not know what talent is all about. He has been in the business for a very long time. He would be an excellent judge. He must be the one.

Adam Lambert only has 1-2 hit songs..better to leave Jenny from the Block in!! Rob Thomas is soooooo much more talented than Adam Lambert. J-LO has years of experience compared to Lambert and is a beauty!! Bring back Paula Abdul!! Paula Abdul and Steven Tyler would have been a hoot!!

Adam is a great choice. I agree her personfies what the show can do for a persons career. People that don't know or follow Adam should know that he has been in the business since 10 in one way or another. He can be brash yet still charismatic and charming and can breath lfe into show is about to go off the air if they don't do do something drastic this year. It also would help the LGBT community to embrace auditioning and not be afraid to say your are gay on the show if you make it. I am all for it

I hope Fox does not consider Adam Lambert as a judge. I am sure there are many REAL stars who have actually made a name for themselves who would be honored to take on the role of judge for AI for a year or two, like Ellen DeGeneres, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez did. Why would Fox even consider Adam Lambert with his limited experience, limited talent, and limited audience?

WHO CARES IF HE IS GAY THAT IS HIS BUSINESS WE ARE THERE O SEE HIM ENTERTAIN US AND HE DOES. I WOULD LOVETO SEE ADAM LAMBER AS A JUDGE ON AMERICAN IDOL. LOVE YOU ADAM ZZZ

I am shocked by the ignorance of several of your writers. Adam has been involved in music (performance) since he was under 10 years old, I believe. Did anyone believe on Idol he showed one ounce of inexperience? He knew how to dress, cause a stir, choose the right songs and sell them to the audience. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have him pass on to recent Idols (and I do still love the show)some of his vast knowledge instead of pampering and cajoling them. As for the bigots in our midst here, too sad!

this is a joke right. the she-man has not been around long. he isn't qualified because he isn't been n the music industry long to critque anyone.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
