Multi-platinum artist and Queen front man Adam Lambert has been announced as a judge on THE X FACTOR Australia.

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.”

Adam will join previously announced judges Iggy Azalea and Guy Sebastian to help discover Australia’s next singing sensation.

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.”

Adam has had a busy few years, his latest album ’The Original High’ was a top 3 worldwide album which took his career sales to over 3 million and was supported by a worldwide tour. His side by side career as Queen’s lead singer has seen him tour the world with the legendary British band garnering rave reviews wherever they go from Australia to the US to the UK, and most recently headlining the Isle of Wight Festival and other music festivals across Europe.
