PUBLIC OPINION > Adam Lambert Should Replace Jennifer Lopez on 'American Idol'

Rumors of J.Lo's departure from "American Idol" have been circulating for months. With her world tour, business ventures, and a couple of kids to look after, it didn't seem too far-fetched. Well, she finally admitted it might be time, which means Fox will be eager to fill her shoes. Reportedly at the top of their list is former "American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert, but we wanted to know who the public would pick.
Sounds like Fox is doing right by the public in seeking out Lambert. After more than 6,000 votes, he took a healthy 9% lead. The 30-year-old singer has already won approval as a Freddie Mercury stand-in, which some might argue is a tougher role to fill than Jennifer Lopez on "Idol," so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise. He scored especially well with young voters.
Interestingly, the runner-up in this poll wasn't a runner-up on "Idol" -- she was a winner. Also 30 years old, Clarkson won the very first season of "American Idol" back in 2002, and effectively helped launch the series into the behemoth it is today. Many winners have faded from memory over the years, but Clarkson has stood the test of time, even a decade later.
Once again, it appears the public wants "Idol" alumni to stick together. Third place went to Carrie Underwood, the only other "Idol" contestant on the list. Maybe they should abandon the celebrity judge angle all together and just throw former contestants up there. The popular ones, of course. Not necessarily the winners.
