Adam Lambert to Become 'American Idol' Judge?
Report: Season 8 runner-up in talks to join panel, other judges' futures up in the air
Adam Lambert could become the first person to graduate from contestant to judge of the same talent show. According to E! Online, the Season 8 runner-up is in talks to join the "American Idol" panel next season.
"They have been talking about Adam for over a month," E! News quotes an unnamed source. "He personifies the show, and will be a popular choice right from the start."
And Lambert may not be the only replacement required. According to E!'s sources, Jennifer Lopez has "no plans to return" for a third stint, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is "up in the air" about re-committing and Randy Jackson may become a casualty because FOX wants to give the series "a new look" following poor ratings last season.
In May, Lopez told former "Idol" judge Ellen DeGeneres: "I don't know if I can go for a third year. I miss doing other things. It really does lock you down, which was nice the first year." Neither of the other judges has made public statements about next season. But, at this point, only Ryan Seacrest is guaranteed to return. (He signed a two-year contract in April.)
Season 12 of "American Idol" premieres in January on FOX.
I'd like to see them get a couple of COUNTRY stars that would know talent when they see it!
And for all you homophobes; you wouldn't be saying that if it were your brother or your sister. How do you think he feels? Gays, lesbians, and bis all have feelings, too
P.S. I heard it was a rumour. He said he'd love to do it, but it hadn't even gotten to him
Being Gay has nothing to do with it.... Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's all they have to come up with??!!!!!
I say NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We can only hope he is on Idol!
Wecome Adam if it is so.
Adam Lambert is the most exciting performer in the music business today. He is a serious , dedicated artist who can write as well as perform innovative music. If he decided to become an Idol judge, I would watch the show again just to see and hear him. There's something about his personality,sense of humor and perserverance that is inspirational.
That being said, I hope he doesn't do it. He is making himself known and respected in the music industry. Getting involved with AI at this point would be a step backward.
Could all the gays and lesbians that don't like Steven Tyler be considered "straight bashers"?
Idol smart ,clever choice ! Adam is controversial and a great singer/ entertainer. From the diverse comments on this blog ( repeated by the same homophobes over and over) They won't miss a single show so they can complain about it to there congregation of prewds the next day.
Fantastic strategy !
