American Idol is planning some BIG shake-ups!
To get their flat ratings back on pitch, FOX has decided to make some changes — starting with the judges!
Apparently Steven hasn't been officially asked back, but the Aerosmith frontman has more job security than Idol's only remaining original judge
"Randy is great, but he's part of the old Idol. They want to keep the soul of the show but have a new look, and for that reason he may well not be part of the new line up."
Who would replace him?
According to our insider, the top contender is former Idol runner-up Adam Lambert! We're told that:
"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."
If FOX wants to beef up their ratings, they're gonna need a SUPER star up on that panel!
