Is ‘Fox’ Chasing Adam Lambert To Save ‘American Idol’ By Judging?
What the next season of American Idol will look like is anybody’s guess right now.
The latest name to be floated around at Fox as a possible new judge is—get ready for it—Idol alum Adam Lambert!
“They have been talking about Adam for over a month,” a source exclusively tells 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.”
As E! News first told you, Jennifer Lopez has no plans to return for a third time at the judges’ table.
Trying to process. Isn’t working. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
OK, had a smoke to calm down. He does not need the foul show, which lost all credibility when he lost. But that is not even half of it and that is why I am so conflicted. figured it out. i fucking hate Rupert Murdoch’s stinking lack of a soul existence and what he has done to journalism, newspapers and TV.
Adam finally got to produce his own talent with ‘Trespassing’, and what a holy good success it is.
I don’t him to have to go back and compromise by working for that prick Lythgoepig. Although, if he does, he will own them, but he will be owned by a franchise. But he will benefit from the boost in attention. if the sudden rise in unwarrented popularity J-Ho has had. and he does have oodles of middle of the road music ready for the ‘Idol’ format.
Either way actually, I think it is win-win. ‘Idol’ could really use a current, intelligent warm host. I suppose Adam could do the next season and then tour the world with ‘Trespassing. His current appearances with Queen certainly show he can rock an arena like the greats.
In his career I think Adam has only ever made one mis-step. That was starting the tongue diving with his guitarist. The pantomime that launched an obsession with his sexuality in the media did luckily cover one of the few bad live performances from Adam……
In some fans mind it will certainly end the whole ‘Adam is a part of a band’ fantasy. He will be strongly branded as a celebrity for something adjacent to his recording career. So, do one season. And then tour ‘Trespassing’. That can work for me.
