The latest by DJ Snake, Justin Bieber and Tove Lo isn't the only new pop music out this week.

Adam Lambert stars in the first sneak peek into The X Factor Australia’s eighth season.

Naturally, this teaser breaks down his pop superstar credentials: His No. 1 Australian hit “Ghost Town” plays, as live footage shows him fronting Queen. (Better yet, this happens when Adam talks of how he grew up watching Queen.)

But Adam also talks what he hopes to see as a first-time judge. “Even if an audition is not perfect, you can see a glimmer of something genius,” he says. “There’s a moment they have when you’re like, ooh. Or I get a feeling. Maybe I’ll get goosebumps. There’s an instinctual trigger that I can’t ignore.”

What you don’t see, though, is the dynamic that co-star Iggy Azalea recently described to E! News. “I thought that I would be the mean one, but Adam is so spicy,” she said. “He really tells it how it is. I think I’m pretty meek compared to him.”

Adam Lambert also joins the returning Guy Sebastian. See the preview up top, then a snapshot of him on set below.
