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

I don't care for Adam but have no problem with the fact that he is gay. I think his flamboyant style may well upset the more reserved gays and give them a bad name. I know Clay Aiken would make a fantastic judge but I don't think he'd be interested. He has some experience in judging.

NO! I guess Adam's singing career is in the toilet, after two bomb albums and many reports over the last few years about his sordid public persona, so having to watch him as a judge on "American Idol" will make me watch something else. I'm gay, but I cannot stand the guy. He's nothing more than a stereotypical flaming queen and everything I find offensive about gay people who act and look like him.

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.
