Adam Lambert Talks EDM, Daft Punk, Nicki Minaj, and ‘Idol’ Judging Rumors

Reality Rocks (New)

Season 8 "American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert dueted on Thursday night's "Idol" finale with third-place finalist Angie Miller, in what was arguably the finest performance of the entire show. That was Angie's moment, her time to shine…but afterwards, when Reality Rocks caught up with Adam backstage, it was time to talk about his own music.

While Adam was frustratingly mum about the early details of his forthcoming third album, in an effort to not be an "over-sharer" like he was with last year's Trespassing, there some still some interesting music talk, as he discussed the current polar-opposite trends of EDM and Mumfordian folk-rock, and where he might fall between the two extremes.

And of course, there had to be some judge talk: Adam's opinions on Nicki Minaj, his thoughts on his old friend Randy Jackson's departure, and, of course, the possibility of him being a judge himself in Season 13. (Editor's note: That must happen.)
