If Enrique Iglesias Passes on American Idol, Adam Lambert Could Be Fourth Judge: Report
Everyone in the music industry has been offered a spot on the American Idol Season 12 judging panel, but at some point the music has to stop and either three or four people will sit down.
Mariah Carey is confirmed as a judge, and Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban are reportedly joining her. Last night, Entertainment Weekly added that Enrique Iglesias has received a firm offer for a judging spot. EW also repeated the reports that there will be four judges this year, but Randy Jackson won't be one of them, since he'll be a menor.

The new report also left the door open for Idol alumnus Adam Lambert to be the fourth judge, if Enrique should pass. Enrique’s been on tour this summer with ex-judge Jennifer Lopez, so it's possible she either sold or soured him on the whole thing.
