Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Adam Lambert: New 'American Idol' Judges?
Miley Cyrus Rumored to be 'American Idol' Judge
There have been plenty of American Idol judge rumors floating lately, including the latest -- Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and, as we reported yesterday, Adam Lambert -- have all been mentioned as contenders.
Lambert has already shot down the rumors that he'll be in a judges seat on Idol, calling it a "beautiful rumor," but adding that he'd definitely jump at the chance if it was offered to him.
Lambert released a statement that said, in part: "IF Idol wants to talk to me about judging, I'd be more than flattered to have that conversation."
There's been no confirmation from Cyrus that anything has been extended to her, but, according to E! Online, an insider spills, "No one has signed any contracts yet and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get."
The source added, "We won't know if Randy [Jackson] and Steven [Tyler] are returning until they see who else is on board."
American Idol execs reportedly want Lopez to stay, but there's also buzz that a shake-up could be in the cards in order to compete with The X Factor bringing Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on board.
In addition to Cyrus and Perry, Fergie, Nicki Minaj, and will.i.am have also been buzzed about to fill the judges panel.
