According to E!, former contestant Adam Lambert is being considered for a judging spot on American Idol. A source told the magazine, “They have been talking about Adam for over a month,” and added that his previous experience on Idol would “bring a unique perspective to the show.”

But speaking to U.K. radio station Capital FM today, Lambert played down the rumors. “I’m just hearing about this today as well, and so, what a beautiful rumor. Listen, if – and I say ‘if’ with a capital I-F – if they were to approach me and if they were to say, ‘We want you to be a judge on the show,’ I would love that. I would jump at the chance,” he said. “I owe my career to American Idol. I mean, if it weren’t for American Idol, I doubt that . . . I would be sitting here with you . . . I think it would be really exciting to be sitting at a judging panel and trying to help people reach their dreams.”

In 2010, Lambert was rumored to replace Simon Cowell as a judge on Idol, but he quickly shot that down, saying, “I would be honored to be asked, but I think at this point I’m just focusing on my career as a recording artist.”
