Adam Lambert prepping to take over Simon Cowell’s “American Idol” spot
Adam Lambert is last year’s “American Idol” runner-up, but it looks like we might be seeing him on “Idol” again. Just a couple of weeks ago he returned to the stage to mentor the contestants, becoming the first “Idol” contestant to come back to be a mentor. The second night he returned to the stage to perform his latest single, “Whataya want from me,” amidst and eye-capturing laser light show. There have been rumors swirling all over the web about talks of Lambert replacing Simon Cowell’s judge spot when Cowell exists next year, and it looks like everyday it’s becoming more of a reality.
National Enquirer reports that his performance last week made such an impression on the producers that he has jumped to the top of their list of people to replace Cowell. In addition, they report that an on set source stated, “Producers were totally bowled over by Adam’s on-target critiques and pithy comments. They believe he’ll bring a fearless, youthful freshness to the show. And let’s not forget, Glambert’s got real stage presence.”
We might continue to watch “American Idol” after Cowell leaves if Lambert is on set.
