Adam Lambert has expressed his interest in becoming part of the reboot of “American Idol.”

On Saturday, Lambert attended the Project Angel Food’s 27th Annual Angel Awards Gala, where he dished on the possibility of him joining the “American Idol” reboot like Ryan Seacrest. The “American Idol” alum, who was a runner-up to Kris Allen in Season 8, was asked whether or not he will be signing on for the reboot as a judge or a guest performer.

“No, they haven’t reached out to me,” Lambert told Entertainment Tonight of the people behind the singing competition. “When [“American Idol”] was on Fox, I was there every season. I would come on and do something and I owe the show great debt of gratitude. I love the show. I think it’s great. I would love to come back and pop in.”

As a former contestant on the show, Lambert offered some advice to the “American Idol” hopefuls who plan to audition and get closer to their dream of singing on a big stage. “You gotta find something that makes you stand out from the pack a bit,” Lambert suggested. “What makes you different than everybody else? What’s your angle? What’s your lane? I mean, that’s the music industry in general.”

Meanwhile, the search for new “American Idol” judges is still ongoing. New rumors claimed that ABC is considering signing deals with Charlie Puth, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie to join Katy Perry on the panel of judges. Many believe that Richie has a big chance of joining the show as a judge because he is reportedly the “internal favorite” among the three artists.

Like Richie, Bryan is also very likely to land one of the seats in the panel of judges because the network has a preference for country music. In fact, ABC is home to the Country Music Awards. Meanwhile, Puth has the least possibility to become a judge among the three, perhaps due to his age and lack of experience compared to the two veterans.

Former “American Idol” producer Nigel Lythgoe previously revealed who he thinks would be a good judge for the show. He said he believes chart-topping singer Bruno Mars will make a great addition to the panel of judges. “The biggest star in my mind at the moment is Bruno Mars,” Lythgoe told ET. “I think Bruno is fantastic. I don’t know if he’d do it.”

Although Lythgoe is rooting for Mars to join the reboot, he also cannot completely guarantee that someone who is a great singer would be a great judge as well. “Just because he’s a great singer and a great performer doesn’t necessarily make him a great judge... You can never tell how a person’s gonna be,” Lythgoe warned.
