Adam Lambert returns to The X factor as a guest judge
Adam Lambert is set to be a guest judge together with fellow X Factor contestant Leona Lewis at Ayda Williams' house.
Lambert will join the 2006 X Factor winner to help judge Williams' Overs category.
The 36-year-old joined Simon Cowell's pre-Judges' Houses event in Los Angeles where Cowell has brought his Girls category.
The vocal powerhouse admitted that the two categories were entirely different.
He said: 'It was a different energy at Simon’s house. It was interesting to size up the competition, because with the overs there’s more life experience, a little more life to tap into emotionally and more life to help them polish their talent.
'But the younger group that Simon has are not as polished, they are raw, they’re promises of something to come. It’s interesting seeing both sides of it.
Sharing his advice towards the contestants he added: 'It’s not easy, but I think at this point everyone knows what’s going on and they just want to help.
'I think having hung out with Simon at his place and now with Ayda and Robbie, they are seeing these people come to the show with dreams and a mission, or something to prove to themselves, their family or the world.
'I think at the end of the day the criticism is usually always constructive, I think the contestants know that.'
