#3: Adam Lambert
Rumors are swirling that former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert is in the running to be one of the new judges on American Idol. I am not sure why he would be such a front-runner, I personally do not think he has had enough experience or success in the music business to be on the the 'top 3' choices, but he seems to be in that spot.
