Though he didn't receive enough votes to be crowned "American Idol" during last week's finale, Adam Lambert may still be headed for the big time. According to Reuters, Queen is looking for a new front man and the Idol contestant with a flair for the dramatic could be the right fit.
Lambert performed with the rock band during American Idol's Season 8 finale and apparently struck a chord with band members.
"I'd certainly like to work with Adam. That is one amazing instrument he has there," Queen guitarist Brian May told Rolling Stone in an interview released Friday.
According to Right Music, Queen reunited in 2004 with new front man Paul Rodgers of Bad Company. This partnership, known as Queen + Paul Rodgers, has recently ended. Adam Lambert has been compared to the late Freddie Mercury, the original Queen front man, leading to the speculation of future collaboration.
Lambert has not stated publicly what his career plans are, but is open to the possibility of a relationship with May's band.
"Queen is one of my all-time favorite bands, I would love to work with him," Lambert said in reference to May in a conference call with reporters on Friday, Reuters reported.
