Playing Watch Adam Lambert Re-Audition for 'American Idol'

Would Adam Lambert have made it on American Idol had he auditioned this year?

The Idol alum blew judges Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr. away when he agreed to audition for them by performing the 1976 song "Bohemian Rhapsody."

The Queen classic was one of the two songs Lambert, now 32, sang during his original Idol audition in 2009.

Now, he's back on the FOX show that gave him his big break, and serving as guest judge while Keith Urban is away.

Lambert is also planning to release a new album this summer and told Billboard magazine that his fans may not expect this sound. "I wanted something more internal and more grounded," he said. "A little less with the theatrical and the camp and the presentation. I wanted to bring it in a bit more."
