It’s all about who’s staying, who’s coming and who’s going on the next season of American Idol.  One bright spot?  Adam Lambert is reportedly in talks to become a 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.”


Get this: Apparently Idol producers are willing to do just about anything to get Jennifer Lopez to come back.  ”I don’t know if they can afford Jennifer, but they have let it be known that she has a guaranteed spot if she wants it,” another one of E!‘s sources said. “She appeals to everyone so the big bosses are in favor of keeping her on.” 

Not even veteran judge Randy Jackson is safe (this is all very “life imitating art”).  ”Randy is great, but he’s part of the old Idol,” added the source. “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 line up.”

And Steven Tyler?  He is also part of the “Up In The Air” club.

Ok, back to Lambert potentially becoming a judge. THIS.  IS.  AWESOME.  He’d be so perfect.  Am I right, or am I right?  We want to know what you think!

  1. Well Adam did take the Glitter and Glam with him when he left Idol in 2009 and that’s the ONLY way that Idol gets it back is when he’s on the show so it’s a guarantee to get viewers to watch it again to have him on as a judge BUT what about his own solo tour that’s due to start at the end of 2012? How are the producers of Idol gong to handle that?

    I have not really be into Idle since Adam. I have been to busy folling him. So I most defently wouls want him to join AI. Would not miss a show. But he has to continue with his music and concerts. Hope he will do it all. He is such a wonderful talent.

    Adam would be an honest, intelligent, and amusing judge and help critique the contestants with compassion and kindness. I think it would be a perfect fit for him as well as A.I. It would make me watch the show again just to see him!

  4. this is a wonderful idea! Adam will be a great judge for the show. He’s hot, talented, a amazing performer and ofc he’ll give the contestants all the useful advises they need !!! I’d love to see him on my TV every week!! AI will be HOTTER than EVER!!
