Let the record show: Adam Lambert can still audition for American Idol like nobody's business!

This Thursday marks the season eight runner-up's debut as a guest judge (filling in for Keith Urban), and we have your first look above.

In the clip, Jennifer Lopez gushes about how thrilled she is to have Adam on board--no disrespect to Keith, obvi. And during the auditions process, Jennifer and Harry Connick Jr. challenge Adam to "audition" once more. 

His choice? "Bohemian Rhapsody," which he sang in his 2009 audition (along with "Rock With You"), and the results prove the 32-year-old has still got it. Watch for yourself!

American Idol airs Wednesday and Thursday on Fox.
