Following Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey’s recent departure from the American Idol franchise, Adam Lambert said that he would love to join as a judge.
“Dude if they called me, ‘I’d be like yeah. Where do I sign?’,” the Idol alum told HollywoodLife. “It would be a really cool opportunity to help people coming into the show and to help them keep their vision focused because it does become overwhelming when you get in there.”
The often-flamboyant pop star added: “I think it might be nice as a judge to help people stay focused. It gets crazy and to help them reach their dreams — it would be such a reward.”
There is a chance this that Lambert could be called up to return. It was confirmed that another Idol alum, Jennifer Hudson, is in negotiations to become a judge next season. Perhaps they’ll enlist a full team of alums to be judges — they have enough to go through!
