Adam Lambert “American Idol” Judge? Lambert Courted To Replace Simon Cowell On “Idol”

"In news that we’ll have to see to believe, American Idol Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert is the latest contender joining the race to replace Simon Cowell on the judges’ panel of television’s most-watched talent show.

After wowing Idol producers with his quick wit and biting critiques as a mentor on last week’s Elvis-themed special, we hear the controversial glam rocker is being eyed as a possible replacement for the man the media dubbed Mr. Nasty. In fact, show bosses believe the “For Your Entertainment” hitmaker has just the right mix of moxie to be a dynamic asset to the series.

A loose-lipped A.I. insider divulges to nosy National Enquirer Gossip Guy Mike Walker (Consider The Source!): “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.”

Before any Glambert Fans start jumping with glee, we should mention that the outspoken star has stiff competition from other seasoned entertainers also rumored to be up for Simon’s job: they include: Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx, singer Shania Twain, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, an acclaimed producer, and music mogul Tommy Mottola.

Simon will wrap up his nine season run on Idol next month to devote his time to developing an American adaptation of his UK small screen smash The X Factor."

(Has anyone else noticed that these two look so similar they could be father and son? Just look at the shape of the face, the nose, the hairline. Hmm...)

What song should Lee sing tonight? Take our Poll!

It's Elvis Presley Week for the American Idol Season 9 Top 9 contestants. Elvis recorded over 800 songs in his too-short career, making him the best-selling solo artist in the history of popular music. His songs encompassed many genres, including gospel, african-american, country, pop and blues. These numerous influences help explain why Elvis was so popular throughout the many different segments of American society. If you were 8 or 80, black or white or brown, rich or poor or middling, Elvis Presley was a good-old American boy, beloved by everyone. All Americans can find at least one Elvis song they relate to.

Elvis recorded more songs than almost any other singer, and this may make it very difficult for the Idol contestants to pick just one song! We've looked at other polls, and dusted off our Elvis collection to see which songs would fit our favorites best.

So, take a moment and take our poll. Let's see if America chooses the same song as our American Idol.

Crystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze talk about bringing didgeridoo and bagpipes to the American Idol stage

It was “Take Your Unusual Instruments to Idol Night” as the top 9 covered the Lennon-McCartney songbook last night. And so we caught up with Crystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze after the show to get the inside scoop of their decisions to use didgeridoo and bagpipes on their respective covers of Beatles songs “Come Together” and “Hey Jude.”

“I was outside one day, and I was humming ['Come Together'] in my head, like, [hums a low note, then sings] lowwww didgeridooo. It was cool,” says Crystal, who explained that Ernie Fields Jr., who works with Rickey Minor and the band, decided to buy a didgeridoo, take a lesson, and play the instrument himself instead of contracting an outside musician to do it. “He is an amazing person,” said Crystal.

Lee gave us a slightly more rambling explanation of his arrangement, so let’s roll the tape: “I’m from Chicago, and so there’s bagpipes everywhere, all the festivals. I love it. And when I was listening to ['Hey Jude'], I wanted to change up the song without changing up the song too much, you know? So I was like, ‘Hey, you know, a bagpipe would be kinda cool on here.’ So they brought it in, I loved it.”

Of course, had he ended up with a different Beatles number, the bagpipes wouldn’t have had their moment, says Lee. They were “specifically for ‘Hey Jude,’” he explains. ” At some point you’ve gotta have fun with it, too. So you get up there, and you don’t want to be stiff and all scared like I have been in the past. I get nervous and the confidence isn’t there. I was like, ‘You know what? I’m just gonna have fun with it from here on out.’ So I was like, ‘Bagpipe? Why not?’”
