American Idol 2012: Judges say everyone is trying to be Adele

American Idol 2012 judges are doing a lot of interviews across the board gearing up for the January 18 premiere of the 11th season and there’s one thing the judges seem to be tiring of: Adele.

Not Adele herself, but contestants trying to channel her. And apparently too many people are singing one of her songs in particular: “Someone Like You.”

Judge Jennifer Lopez told TV Guide “You have some people who do their own rendition of her who do it beautifully and then you have the people who fall a bit short.”

“Every three songs it’s that same song,” Judge Steven Tyler says, “but you have to let them sing because you never know who will nail it.”
