He talks to Ellen DeGeneres about this season’s “American Idol.”
Ellen: Are you watching this season?
Adam: Not yet. I usually tune in when they get to Top 12.
Ellen: Have you heard anything about it?
Adam: I heard that it’s good.
Ellen: It is good.
Adam: I’m going to miss you. I don’t know how I feel about that.
Ellen: Oh, you’re sweet … But Steven Tyler is fantastic.
Adam: And I’m a huge fan.
Ellen: And he’s the strangest guy so it’s fascinating to watch. He has good notes and so does Jennifer Lopez.
Adam: Yeah, she’s been working in this industry forever. She really knows, I think.
