Lambert approves of new Idol judges

Lopez and the Aerosmith rocker were unveiled as the new panellists of the hit U.S. reality series on Wednesday (22Sep10), following weeks of speculation over who would replace exiting judges Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi.

And now the new additions have been named, Lambert, who landed the runner-up place on the programme last year (09), has spoken out in support of the high-profile choices.

He says, “I think Steven Tyler’s obviously an icon. I think it’s really cool – it will give it (the show) some cred (credibility). I think J-Lo gives them some cred. She’s urban pop – hopefully they can find some urban pop artists.”
