AND then there were three. US singing star Adam Lambert has been named as the third and final judge for The X Factor in 2016.

Lambert joins Aussie superstar Iggy Azalea and Guy Sebastian as Channel Seven shakes up the program’s format in its eighth Australian season.

Iggy Azalea is coming home to Australia to be a part the judging panel and to escape her now ex-fiance Nick Young.

Fewer judges mean fewer spots for aspiring singers, with competition set to be hot this year.

“I am very excited to join X Factor in Australia and am looking forward to helping people shine their brightest,” Lambert said.

“Australia has always been one of my favourite places to tour. The Aussies I’ve met are so kind and good humoured — so the thought of getting to live in Sydney is very exciting.”

The three judge panel is part of broader changes to the show that will include reducing the number of live shows and there will be three contestant categories where there were previously four.

Seven is also soon expected to announce a new host to replace Luke Jacobz, who last year controversially lost his licence after being charged for drink driving before the series premiered.

Sebastian is the veteran of the format, returning for his fifth season on the reality singing show after being on last year’s panel with Dannii Minogue, Chris Isaak and James Blunt.

“I’m not sure if we had the right panel last year, that we had the right chemistry,” he said.

“It just didn’t quite feel like it gelled so I think the change is good. It will be quite a different show … There will be a lot of changes, but the core of my job stays the same in that I’m there to mentor.”
