Adam Lambert Talks Angie Miller, Possible Judging Gig And More

I happened upon this video of Adam Lambert on this fine Sunday afternoon. He was interviewed after his amazing duo with Top 3 American Idol Season 3 Finalist, Angie Miller.

The first impression I discerned while listening to and watching him speak was how absolutely grounded he appears to be while speaking about a variety of topics.

There is no pretence here – he feels genuine and real and, even better, his authenticity comes with an intelligent and focused approach to his singing career.

This video leaves nothing open to misinterpretation. He wants to be a judge on American Idol and the Fox honchos would be insane if they didn’t snatch him up.

For, what is the only thing American Idol can claim that the other Reality Singing Competitions cannot?

Answer: American Idol has discovered bona fide stars that remain on the viewers’ radar long after the show dims its lights at the end of each season.

Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aiken, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Katharine McPhee, Kellie Pickler, Jordin Sparks, David Cook, David Archuleta, Jason Castro, Adam Lambert, Scotty McCreery, Jessica Sanchez, DeAndre Brackensick, Phillip Phillips, Angie Miller, Candice Glover, who else am I missing? The list is endless.

And so many of these singers could easily and, more important, intuitively lend their expertise to the judging panel. They’ve all been there, done that – Adam points this out very well in the video.

And, perhaps, at different points in the season, they could mentor and perform with the finalists. The possibilities are endless. Endless!

Have a look at the video, reblog it, link to it and add your impressions in the comments section. Maybe we can make a difference, here in the MCL Community.

  1. Adam would be a great judge! He already proved that when he was a mentor a couple of years ago. He was blunt but kind, and he honed in on exactly what each contestant needed to do to improve his or her performance (although some of them didn’t follow his advice and it was to their detriment). I think a panel of judges made up of former contestants would go a long way toward giving Idol a sense of family and thus make it more appealing for the viewers.


  2. Murly, I so agree. Adam is candid, charming and eloquent. He knows the Idol game and he could help contestants grow and he awesome to listen to. Also an occasional Adam performance would be to die for.


  3. Gahhh, I’m a big time Glambert so I’m slightly biased where this is concerned. But he is very articulate, opinionated, tactful and charismatic. I think those are qualities that an interesting and effective judge should have. Not everyone is a fan of his vocal stylings but any objective-minded person will admit that he has incredible technical skills. Always helpful on a judging panel, though being able to communicate them effectively is also important. I think he’d be able to :).


  4. I hope American Idol hire alumni as judges. It would be innovative. Also, they would focus on the singers in the competition in the right way. Obviously the big name judges are not bringing in the ratings so it’s time to take another road.

    Alumni as judges, really great, innovative and diverse singers, a wide range of copyright-free songs and the show would be back on track. That’s what I feel so…


  5. I’m always so heartened when I see/hear Adam speak. Adam is so well spoken and down to earth. Doesn’t he seem like one of the kindest souls out there? I don’t think it is put on or an affectation. I really hope he becomes a judge or regular mentor. I think he has a gift for couching criticism in the positive. Perhaps he has the soul of a teacher.


  6. Jessica – I have always loved Adam but, in recent months, have gained even more respect for him and an artist and as a person. He is a genuine, caring soul and, yet, his honesty is so refreshing and candid. I love that about him
