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?


YES!!!!! I LOVED him as a contestant, so I will love him even more as a judge. He has an amazing voice and personality and if he does end up getting the job, he will do AMAZINGLY!


I like his or his vocal abilities. i dont like his dont give a dam attitude, remeber when he was on a music video show, and he frenched kiss his fellow musician, and when people complained that their kids were watching the show at 8pm, he said "im not your kids babysitter", my point is if he is that callous to say that at that time,, can you imagine what he will be saying and doing as a judge, on an 8pm family show like Idol, im just saying, dont bring trouble around Idol keep Lambert of


OMG! Oh yes! If Adam Lambert returns back to idol, I'll definitely watch idol again. No kidding!!!! He is frickin exciting and his music knowledge is undeniable. I am excited to just talk about it. Hope it'll happen.


I hope not!!! I'm no homophobe but I couldn't stand him when he was a contestant on Idol. I sure couldn't stand him as a judge.


OMG YES. He needs to be one. I love him so much


I support anyone that replaces Jennifer Lopez. Don't let the door hit you in your trunk junk on the way out!!!!


Anybody would be better then the ancient, always crying, no knowledge of music JLow! Get her off the ashow and I for one will start watching again.


Wooo Adam!


Ok I'm not a fan of his simply because most of his music is not what I'm into. But honestly Idol has been going down hill for a while now. This is also evident in how they keep changing things. Idol probably has a few more years left to it. But it seems to have reached its peak in popularity long ago. Just like everything else, it has to end at some point and that end appears to be nearing.


He would be a fantastic judge but he does need to concentrate on his own career. His recent concerts in Europe with Queen were fantastic--with more scheduled for London. He is also busy promoting his new album Trespassing so don't know when he would have time for Idol.
