There’s a hot rumor going around the entertainment world that Adam Lambert is being considered as the next potential “American Idol” judge. “They have been talking about Adam for over a month,” a source told E! News. “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.”
The source wouldn’t say who Lambert would replace, but Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are both on the fence about returning to judge the singing competition. And Randy Jackson, continued the source, is “part of the old Idol,” which could pose a problem as Fox producers try to restore the show to its blockbuster glory days. “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 lineup.”
Do you think Adam Lambert would make a good “American Idol” judge? What has your favorite judging team been in the show’s history?
