Glee is getting a major dose of glam rock for Season 5. Adam Lambert, the guyliner-clad runner up of American Idol Season 8, will be joining the cast.

Creator Ryan Murphy announced the news on Twitter July 10, writing, "I am thrilled to announce that the super talented Adam Lambert is joining the cast of Glee this fall."

Nothing else is known about Adam's role on the show so far, though we did notice that Ryan says he'll be joining the cast. It doesn't sound like this is just some one-time guest spot.

Since Adam is 31, we're willing to guess that he will show up in New York City instead of McKinley High School, though of course we don't really know for sure.He could be a student at NYADA, or one of the actors in the Broadway revival of Funny Girl, assuming Rachel (Lea Michele) gets the part.

There have also been reports that Kurt (Chris Colfer) will be joining a band in Season 5. Dare we think that Adam's character might also be in give band? And if so, is it possible that he might be a potential new love interest for Kurt? Not exactly the sort of thing Blaine (Darren Criss) fans want to think about, obviously. Still, it could be a possibility.

What do you think about the news that Glambert has joined the cast? Is it a match made in Glee heaven, or are you not so sure how you feel about the choice?
