Adam Lambert has been confirmed as a judge on The X Factor Australia.
The singer and Queen frontman will join Guy Sebastian and Iggy Azalea on the panel when it returns later this year.
Adam said, “I am very excited to join X Factor in Australia as a Judge and am looking forward to helping people shine their brightest,’ says Lambert. He added, “Australia has always been one of my favorite places to tour. The Aussies I’ve met are so kind, and good humored – so the thought of getting to LIVE in Sydney is very exciting.”
Channel Seven’s Director of Production, Brad Lyons says, “Adam is truly a world class artist, performing on some of the biggest stages in the world. He knows first-hand how hard that first break can be. His experience and passion will be invaluable for our contestants.”
The fourth judge for this year’s season is yet to be confirmed.
Earlier this year Adam brought his The Original High tour to the UK and most recently he performed with Queen at the Isle of Wight Festival. Adam will be starring as Eddie in Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show remake and will tour Asia with Queen later this year.
Adam will also be recording the follow up to The Original High with executive producers Max Martin and Shellback.
