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, He made me a fan of AMERICAN IDOL. Would love to see him as a Judge and even get up and perform.


I think it would be great..and good bye j lo..who cares ? shes so stuck on herself anyway..and as far as I'm concerned they need to get all new judges..including getting rid of randy..dawg...


I'd love to see Adam as a judge for AI but I don't think it's a good timing. He will be very busy the second half of 2012 promoting his new album around the globe which is far more important than the ceremonial nod at the old and extremely conservative show.


I see one ugly ass bigot has already made it's feeble way here to make the same old tired crap spew. How about stepping into the 21st century cow pile, that same old hateful spew simply shows your ignorance.


So what if he is GAY !!! Seriously, people need to grow up !!!! You may not like his music , but don't judge someone because they like the same sex.


Your father is in the closet.stop hatin bitch

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.
