Flamboyant American Idol singer Adam Lambert is the latest name to join Seven’s upcoming series of The X Factor.
He joins previously-announced Iggy Azalea and Guy Sebastian.
“I am very excited to join X Factor in Australia and am looking forward to helping people shine their brightest,” Lambert said.
“Australia has always been one of my favourite places to tour. The Aussies I’ve met are so kind and good humoured — so the thought of getting to live in Sydney is very exciting.”
Lambert is currently touring Europe with Queen, with Asian dates to follow in September.
News Corp confirms there will be three contestant categories this year instead of four.
A host is yet to be confirmed.
