E! Online reports that Adam Lambert is being eyed for a judging spot on "American Idol".

A source told E!, "They have been talking about Adam for over a month," and added that his previous "Idol" experience would "bring a unique perspective to the show."

Lambert downplayed the gossip during an interview with U.K. radio station Capital FM on Monday, telling the station, "I'm just hearing about this today as well, and so, what a beautiful rumor. Listen, if '-- and I say 'if' with a capital I-F -- if they were to approach me and if they were to say, 'We want you to be a judge on the show,' I would love that. I would jump at the chance." He added, "I owe my career to 'American Idol.' I mean, if it weren't for 'American Idol,' I doubt that ... I would be sitting here with you ... I think it would be really exciting to be sitting at a judging panel and trying to help people reach their dreams."
