We definitely know that Adam Lambert is interested in a judging spot for American Idol Season 12, but will it happen?

According to Adam’s new interview with Australia’s Herald Sun, it’s a distinct possibility! When prompted about potentially joining the show, Adam said simply, “I am still waiting on the green light; I am still being considered as far as I know and it was really lovely to talk with them.”

In early July, executive producer Nigel Lythgoe responded to rumors of Adam joining the Idol judging panel, saying, “I can confirm with you that I have not been speaking to Adam Lambert, but there are going to be lots of names coming up now... Everything’s still up in the air, I have to say. Nothing is confirmed.”

We guess things have changed over the last month! Are you hoping he’ll get the gig?
