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 feel he doesnt have enought experience to be qualified as a judge. Him being gay has little to do with that. My momma always told me to hate the sin NOT the sinner. He is very talented no doubt. I think they should get someone to be a judge that has been in the business longer than Adam has. Just my opinion.


this is a wonderful idea! Adam will be a great judge for the show. He's hot, talented, a amazing performer and ofc he'll give the contestants all the useful advises they need !!! I'd love to see him on my TV every week!! AI will be HOTTER than EVER!!


He would bring some vibrancy to the show and wouldn't be mr nice guy like j-lo is. The gay bashers should go back and read their bible - God forgives everyone - even them - but if God made someone gay - they are gay - get your heads out of the sand.


I like Adam and he's a great singer/performer, but I don't think he has enough experience and credibility at this point. I don't know why people think that a gay person cannot judge. It's not like he is teaching your kids how to have same sex; he's just another human being who has a talent opinion. Would you feel that strongly with Elton John, Barry Manilow, etc?


I think Adam would be a GREAT judge. Who better than him with his talent and insight into the show and what works. As to the comments of the homophobic who posted're disgusting and abominations. Being gay has nothing to do with the talent anyone has. He's would not be on there to have "gay sex". I'm tired of the homophobic bullies in this world. Oh and by the way, I am a straight 56 year old woman. Anyway, the topic at hand is should Adam be a judge? I would LOVE it if he was so I could get my Adam fix on a regular basis. I love his music and love him and would enjoy very much seeing him on TV every week :) I think he would be a wonderful asset to the panel of judges


gay is a abomination if he go on. ill not watch anymore its time for american to wake up and quit believeing that being gay is all right its not and i hope the gays wake up before it to late you can still be saved just turn from your way god will forgive you


if they put adam lambert on the show ill not watch it anymore im tired of the local network pushing the guy card everytime they can you know people we have children we need to raise are we raiseing them to grow up to be guy read your bibl people guy is a abomination and that the only way you can look at less try to do what god want us to and not back guy i just hope that they see the truth before its to late


I think that it will be great if he does so. But honestly, I think he's quite busy after the release of his new album.... And I think he still has to plan his tour?


I think he will work well as a judge on the show as he can give contestants constructive criticism and advice
