A source tells E! that "American Idol" producers have been thinking about switching up the judges panel, and have mentioned the season eight runner-up as a possible choice to dole out critiques to wannabe stars.
The E! News source says:
"They have been talking about Adam for over a month ... He personifies the show, and will be a popular choice right from the start. He knows what it's like to be on the receiving end of the judges' comments, he has a human touch, and they know they can't go wrong if they bring him on. He would be able to bring a unique perspective to the show. People love him."
