Adam Lambert To Return To American Idol As Judge?

Adam Lambert American Idol judge

American Idol fan favorite Adam Lambert is rumored to be returning to American Idol 2013 as a season 12 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.”

As we all know, Jennifer Lopez’s return to the show has been up in the air since season 11 even started. That’s how she plays the game. So it looks like Adam’s name is being heavily considered for taking a judge’s seat.

Actually, Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler’s fate hasn’t been decided either. So is it possible we’ll see an all new panel?

“Randy is great, but he’s part of the old Idol,” the source told E!. “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.”

A Steven Tyler spokesperson says Steven’s Idol future is also up in the air. As is Producer Nigel Lythgoe. So basically, host Ryan Seacrest is the only person locked in at this moment.
