Adam Lambert Stunned By Huge ‘X Factor Australia’ Twist (VIDEO)
Adam Lambert has been killing it as a judge on The X Factor Australia 2016, but a new twist to the competition left him floored, more so than either of his fellow judges, Iggy Azalea and Guy Sebastian.
Adam and his fellow judges are gathered in front of a TV screen revealing Simon Cowell, the creator of The X Factor franchise. After stating how he likes to shake things up, Simon reveals the big twist: Mel B will make her return to The X Factor Australia as the fourth judge of a brand-new category called the Underdogs, comprised of people the other judges have cut from the competition at the Three Chair Challenge.
Guy can’t help but laugh at the insanity of it all, while Iggy seems distressed by the possibility that another judge could win with an act she let go. But it’s Adam who seems the most shocked by all this, as it slowly dawns on him that they’re being joined by a fourth judge. It’s a moment that’s both amusing and kind of adorable, really. Naturally, as the judge for the incredibly strong Under 22s category, Adam had to be more careful than most in whittling down to his final 12 for the Three-Chair Challenge. It should be interesting to see how he handles the fourth judge. Until then, watch the big twist reveal, the category reveal, and Adam’s final twelve below:
