EOnline is reporting that American Idol is considering Adam Lambert as a permanent judge:
“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.”
Okay. Let me remind you that this is E News. And Mark Malkin is the gossip columnist who reported that X Factor had offered Glee star Darren Criss a position as host. Later, Darren said that he stayed quiet as the item churned through the news cycle, because the rumor was so AWESOME–but that NO the report was 100 percent FALSE.
Having said that…if it’s true? Why would Adam say yes. It’s too early in the game for the “my career is beginning to tank, time to sign on to a reality show” deal. Sure, Kelly Clarkson has done it, but her career is established, and the commitments she chose–guest mentoring on the Voice and Duets– were all short term. American Idol is a huge commitment. Hence, Jennifer and Steven possibly moving on now that their careers are rejuvenated.
But…it’s not a bad choice. Adam is a pretty smart, articulate feller and not afraid to speak his mind. That he’s been there and done that could add another layer to the panel. It’s just a matter of whether he would be willing to make that commitment. Still, I think it’s E News trolling for hits…but stranger things have happened.
As E! News first told you, Jennifer Lopez has no plans to return for a third time at the judges’ table. As for Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler…A source tells us that they are not necessarily going to be back either.
“Randy is great, but he’s part of the old Idol,” the source said. “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 Tyler source confirms the Aerosmith frontman isn’t sure of his future. “All up in the air,” the source said. “We shall see.”
This is a no-brainer. I believe everybody is up for renewal this year, so anything could happen. Jennifer and Steven got their career bumps. Both may be happy to move on. Randy would likely come back if he were asked. But FOX honchos may want to completely retool the panel, considering this past season’s ratings drop.
Fox will, multiple sources confirm, try to change Lopez’s mind. “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,” one of the sources said. “She appeals to everyone so the big bosses are in favor of keeping her on.”
Seriously. WHY? She’s not a great judge. At least Steven brings the lulz. Jennifer is a lot of empty talk, mostly. Her opinions, even when she’s trying to be constructively critical, don’t carry that much weight.
UPDATE! Adam is in the UK getting ready to perform with Queen. He responded to the rumors this morning. Adam calls the report a “beautiful rumor” and says he would JUMP AT THE CHANCE to be an American Idol judge IF the he were asked! via Pressparty
