'American Idol' Singer Adam Lambert Joins 'Glee' for Season 5

Glee is about to get a glam makeover for season 5. On Wednesday evening Ryan Murphy tweeted that American Idol's Adam Lambert is joining the cast.

No other details were given, so all we really know is that "the super talented Adam Lambert is joining the cast of Glee this fall."

Is it a guest appearance like Josh Groban? A small recurring role like fellow Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez? Or a major recurring role like Kate Hudson last season?

Whatever the case, Adam Lambert's musical range and unique style seem like a natural fit for Glee. If I had to guess, I'd say he could be a new professor at NYADA, maybe one that Kurt develops a little crush on. Or he could be a bad boy of Broadway who tempts Rachel, but that all seems a little too much like Smash.

Adam Lambert is best known as the runner-up from American Idol season 8, losing to Kris Allen in the finale. He is openly gay and has gone on to much musical success with his stylish, over-the-top glam rock.

Lambert's only previous scripted television credit was a cameo as himself on Pretty Little Liars.

Are you excited to see Lambert on Glee? What role do you think he should play?

"Glee is really irresistible -- it's charming," he said at the time, noting he'd love to be able to play himself on the series. (Lambert most recently played himself and performed on ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars.)

Lambert's casting marks a welcome injection of star power to Glee. The series will see some of its original cast members -- fan favorites Heather Morris, Mark Salling, Amber Riley and Harry Shum Jr. -- take on a reduced role next season. To compensate, the show bumped up to series regulars new additions Melissa Benoist, Jacob Artist, Becca Tobin, Blake Jenner and Alex Newell to series regulars.

Glee has a history of booking big-name guest stars. Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson both had recurring roles during Glee's fourth season as the series split its focus between its Ohio-set high school and New York, where stars Lea Michele and Chris Colfer are prominently featured.

Glee season 5 premieres Thursday, September 19 at 9pm on FOX
