'American Idol' won't be back until next year, but it looks like producers are already looking for a replacement for Jennifer Lopez, if she decides not to return. The name at the top of the list of replacement judges seems to be former Idol contestant Adam Lambert. He told The Hollywood Reporter, "If Idol wants to talk to me about Judging, I'd be more than flattered to have that conversation," in response to reports from E! News that he was in serious talks to join the singing competition show.
Lambert was runner-up on season 8 of the show so he already knows how everything works and would be a great fit, not to mention the fact that he can actually sing. However, I kind of feel like they need that one female judge to play nice while Randy Jackson doles out the actual criticism and Steven Tyler forgets where he is for a minute. Back in May, La Lopez told Ellen Degeneres on her talk show that she wasn't sure she would be back for another season. "I don't know if I can go for a third year. I miss doing other things." She does have three children to take care of. Heh.
E! also reports that other possible judges being considered range from Will.i.am and Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas to Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj. If Idol does go with someone like Miley, it would seen as a ploy to try to get that coveted youth viewership, like Demi Lovato on 'X Factor.' At least then we might not end up with another WGWG (white guy with guitar) as the winner.
