Adam Lambert is a brilliant Artist. Anyone who says he isn’t .. is clueless. He is also articulate, music savvy and as honest as can be. He’d be an amazing judge. And in reply to madonna54. YOU are an ignorant biatch :) js

Adam Lambert would be perfect for Idol because he has lived it! He knows the industry and is such a positive person. He can help anyone and everyone achieve their dream of being an artist! He’s a good soul.

No, I think he needs better people skills & more experience. Also, bit polarizing.

Jlo is sure going to be piss off about the news of Jennifer Hudson getting the gig as the next Idol judge, she was banking on this gig and the that new versions smartphone store venture that has already shipwreck before it got started because of bad publicity, from the public and in the smartphone industry according to sources that were involved in Jlo new home purchase in Water Mill, NY. Well it looks JLo going to have to back out on sales of her home, because after all the drama and the bad news, she isn’t going to have any money to buy anything without any gig or joint venture?

Adam Lambert needs the job. His last CD was a bomb. There is no touring interest of him in the States. Also, at 31, with one modest album (which failed to sell Platinum in the US), he’s a flop.

He earned 6million dollars last year, toured three continents, performed with Cyndi Lauper, Nile Rodgers and Queen. His second album debuted at #1 on Billboard charts and received rave reviews including 4-stars from Rolling Stone. He also raised thousands of dollars for various charities and was honored with two awards from GLAAD.

At this very moment he is preparing to entertain 60,000 people, including heads-of-state and industry Icons, at Life Ball in Vienna.

Get a life dude. This is about the third blog you’ve entered the exact same comment on. Why not spend your energy supporting someone you admire, rather than spending your time following Adam just to try to discredit him? So sad.

He’d be great. His has a great knowledge of voice, he’s articulate and funny and kind – great to look at – face, clothes, hair – I mean that’s a nice extra :) Best of all, he’s a great mentor we already know that. His voice has also been analysed by so many professionals and its facets and qualities are quite remarkable. To those who go eww, i say you really have no idea of his vocal repertoire. He’s an international star of the first order, which might help Idol feel less provincial and like a little niche thing. It is broadcast round the world, though who knows if it still is.

I haven’t watched Idol since Adam lost, but I would watch again if he were a judge. The only reason he’s polarizing and hasn’t had mega success since Idol is that he seems more interested in shock value in his concert performances and being a trendy follower in his song choices instead of living up to his potential by being a leader charting a path to mainstream, lasting greatness. We saw on Idol the caliber of Adam’s performances and song choices, how truly great his singing voice can be, as well as his generosity and ear for music when singing with contestants out of his league talent-wise enabling him to blend well with them and hold back allowing them to shine. Thanks to Adam leading the way on Idol, many of the contestants these days are actual performers working the stage instead of just singers standing like statues. He’s older now, and he’s clearly learned his lesson about the necessity of tempering his performance for a mainstream TV audience. Since the awards fiasco he’s always been completely appropriate and charming during his TV appearances. All of these qualities would make him an excellent judge who would be kind and helpful but honest, and it would be fun to get to see him on TV every week again.

The few time I’ve seen him perform after Idol, I’ve found him creepy and repulsive. Didn’t like him when he was a contestant and certainly would not watch the show if he was a judge.

Adam isn’t even a platinum seller. His latest album has only sold 143k in a whole year and has no songs on the charts. He isn’t even a star plus his fans are too nasty just like him.

i liked him as a contestant. have not liked him as a celebrity. but, i think he would be a good judge and good mentor. i also think he would be someone who could bring some relevance back to the show. if a makeup wearing homosexual can come in second while a contestant, with idol’s demographic (midwest middle aged housewives, and hormoned out tween girls) i think he knows how to keep things appropriate for the idol audience- that said, even toned down, he might bring a new type of viewer to the show- and a type of viewer that has money to spend on albums. he would be a good choice, i think. and, actually, they’ve never had an idol winner be a judge, so that would be interesting/good, i think. i’m not ECSTATIC about it, but i actually think as part of the right team, he could be a good choice. gotta keep a country representative though… not sure who else would be good for the mix.

Adam is good in judging singing based on the things you look for such as:pitch, clarity , stage presence, vocal range, modulation, and so on. I believe he did take voice training.

I’d love to see Adam as judge. If producers want JHud, perhaps they should consider the impact she had as a contestant as opposed to ALambert. Which one captivated the nation, and which one was ousted in the 7th spot? Adam has 2 million twitter followers, is making a huge impact internationally, and has a charismatic, sparkling personality, as well as being articulate and witty. If I seem overly invested, it’s with reason. He has a way of pulling people in to stay. I think Idol could do no better than to enlist him as a judge(withperhaps an occasional oerformance? i can dream…). Seeing him each week would be my reason to tune in..

No, I would not like to see Adam as a judge. He is too polarizing for Idol, a family oriented show. He has the reputation for vulgar and obscene acts during his concerts. Plus, he really is more of a pop singer in China than in the US now. I never hear of him anymore.

adam made it to second place when a contestant, so i think you’re way off base to say he’s polarizing. he knows his audience, and would behave differently as a judge than he does as a performer. that’s what he did as a contestant. played to the audience. and he came in second, so… not very polarizing.

He became more polarizing after the show–what was that at the AMA’s that had him banned from ABC for awhile? He has no cred as a judge when he doesn’t even have a platinum record and has to go overseas to get an audience. He sees it as a career booster, looking to use the position like J-Lo did to get fans.
Why not get two industry insiders who know the business and rotate the third seat every week between the idols if they have to use idol alums?

He can’t be trusted on live TV. He proved how vulgar he is on the American Music Awards when he forced that dancer to blow him on stage.

Adam was a mentor on a previous season and was spot on with observations and recommendations! He would be the best judge ever on American Idol. Grab him while you can!

Adam is a perfect person to be a judge on American Idol.He is extremely talented, is charismatic, has a wonderful sense of humor, is intelligent, articulate, has experience in various aspects of entertainment, is a kind-hearted person, is great to look at and can certainly understand what the contestants are going through.I would definitely watch if he were a judge.
