Adam Lambert, the season 8 runner-up on ‘American Idol,’ is reportedly in talks to join the show as a judge for season 12, according to E! News.
A source tells E! that the negotiations have been going on for about a month now, with the source saying:
“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 question is, are these Lambert ramblings the proof that Jennifer Lopez will not be returning to judge for a third season on the show?
It was Lopez who hinted at a possible departure during a chat with Ellen DeGeneres in which she said she “misses doing other things,” adding “It really does lock you down, which was nice the first year.”
How would you feel about Adam Lambert joining Randy Jackson and Stephen Tyler for an all male judges panel?
