Adam Lambert on judging 'American Idol': 'Where do I sign?'


Pop singer Adam Lambert would join the "American Idol" judges panel in a heartbeat if the show's producers asked him.

The "Whataya Want from Me" singer is jumping at the possibility of inking a deal to join the TV talent contest, and his admission comes as FOX is reportedly recruiting an all-new lineup of judges that will consist of former "Idol" contestants in an effort to cure the show's dip in ratings.

Lambert tells, "Dude, if they called me, I'd be like, 'Yeah. Where do I sign?' It would be a really cool opportunity to help people coming into the show and to help them keep their vision focused because it does become overwhelming when you get in there and there's so many people telling you what they think you should do and your family, the producer, the judges, and all the other contestants that might be screwing with your head. I think it might be nice as a judge to help people stay focused. It gets crazy and to help them reach their dreams -- it would be such a reward."

The former "American Idol" runner-up is one of the most successful contestants produced by the show. His most recent album, "Trespassing," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart, making Lambert the first openly gay artist to achieve that distinction.

Another key prospect, Season 1 champ Kelly Clarkson, has ruled herself out, while R&B singer Jennifer Hudson has reportedly signed on.
