Adam Lambert is in talks to replace a judge on American Idol! Hey Idol fans, welcome back to ClevverMusic. Judges for Season 12 of FOX’s American Idol is anyone’s guess right now, as rumors have been flying that Jennifer Lopez will not be returning. The latest buzz comes from Idol Alum and runner-up Adam Lambert who E! News is reporting is being considered as a judge for the show.
A source revealed, “They have been talking about Adam for over a month… he personifies the show, and will be a popular choice right from the start.” This comes as a surprise to many who have never heard of a former contestant being deliberated for a judging seat. Apparently the producer’s believe he would bring a unique perspective to the show and an updated spin on the long running reality show.
We have previously reported that Jennifer Lopez has no plans to return for third time at the judge’s table, although the spot is there for her if she wants it. As for the other two judges, Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler, have reportedly not signed on officially for next season either.
We’re not sure yet the reason for the shakeup at the show, but critics think these judges have been too soft on contestants, and Season 11 saw the lowest ratings for the ‘Idol’ finale ever. Now it’s your turn, what do you think of Adam being an ‘Idol’ judge? Leave a comment and be sure to subscribe to ClevverMusic for more music news, bye!
