Adam Lambert Talks About The Judging Style He Will Use On American Idol

Tapped to replace Keith Urban on the judging panel for a couple of episodes of American Idol this season, Adam Lambert recently spoke to about the judging style that he will use and said he knows how difficult the process is having gone through it himself.

“It’s hard: They’ve gone through two auditions already before they see us, and most of them have been waiting in a room to see us for hours and hours, and the nerves get crazy. It’s hard to be your best self in that situation,” Lambert said. “I try to look for who they usually probably are — or who they might be after they get a little more comfortable. I try to get them grounded, breathing and making a good song choice.”
