With Grammy and Oscar winner Melissa Etheridge completing her limited engagement in American Idiot and Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong returning to the show, Broadway.com asked which 2011 Grammy nominee you'd like to see join the cast of of the rocking musical. The votes are in, and readers hope to see an American Idol contestant become an American Idiot, as season eight runner-up Adam Lambert landed in the top spot. Thirty-seven percent of voters said they'd like Lambert, who scored a Grammy nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, to play sinister drug dealer St. Jimmy. The "For Your Entertainment" singer would fit right in on Broadway, thanks to his theatrical background. (He appeared in the Los Angeles productions of Ten Commandments, The Musical and Wicked among others.)
Following in second place came Best Album nominee Katy Perry. The "Teenage Dream" singer, who we'd cast as young mother Heather, earned 16% of votes.
Third place honors go to Perry's fellow Best Album nominee Lady Gaga. Twelve percent of fans said they'd like to see Gaga follow in Etheridge's footsteps by taking on the role of St. Jimmy, which is traditionally played by a man.
Thanks for voting!
