Adam Lambert Excited for ‘American Idol’ Reboot, Will He Be a Judge?

While America isn’t quite sure about the return of American Idol, many people are excited that Katy Perry will be a judge, and that includes Adam Lambert.

“I think Katy’s going to be a great judge on the show,” Lambert gushed to ET during the ASCAP Pop Music Awards in Los Angeles, California, on Thursday. “She has a long history with the show, she’s been on it as a guest a million times. She understands the show, I think she’s going to be great.”

Lambert, who competed on season eight of the singing competition, said he wouldn’t mind taking a seat at the judging table himself.

“That would be fun,” he shared. “I just judged X Factor in Australia last year and I had a blast.”

“I really liked working with talent,” the 35-year-old singer continued. “I had, like, the young group and it was great to, like, develop their acts and their songs and help them get where they wanted to go, so yeah, I’d be game.”

Variety has also learned that Idol alum Carrie Underwood has held talks with ABC and producers about joining American Idol as a judge. In addition, Adam Lambert’s name has been in the mix for a potential role, sources confirm.
