Speaking to U.K. radio station Capital FM yesterday, the former runner-up sounded excited but cautious about the possibility, referring to it as a "beautiful rumor."

"I'm just hearing about this today," Adam said. "Listen, if – and I say 'if' with a capital I-F – if they were to approach me and if they were to say, 'We want you to be a judge on the show,' I would love that. I would jump at the chance.

"I owe my career to American Idol. I mean, if it weren't for American Idol, I doubt that... I would be sitting here with you... I think it would be really exciting to be sitting at a judging panel and trying to help people reach their dreams."

Aside from Lambert, chatter persists that Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and others are up for American Idol judging spots. Would you wanna see Adam on the panel?
