Season 8 contestant Adam Lambert will join Harry Connick Jr and Jennifer Lopez as a new American Idol judge.
Alright, don’t fret Keith Urban fans! Adam Lambert will just be a guest judge.
According to Billboard, Adam Lambert will fill in for Keith Urban for the New York City ‘American Idol’ auditions at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Urban is currently away on leave after his wife Nicole Kidman’s father passed away due to an accidental fall in Singapore.
American Idol made the substitution announcement on its official Twitter last night (Sept. 15). “Adam Lambert will be serving as guest judge at the NY auditions. Our thoughts are with Keith and his family during this difficult time,” the show announced.
‘American Idol’ Season 14 will premiere in January 2015.
