Now that Mariah Carey has officially signed the dotted line to join the upcoming season of American Idol, it seems that Nick Jonas isn’t far behind. According to the singer himself, he’s being considered to join Mariah at the judges table.
“The rumors are true … I am being considered to be a judge on American Idol, and it would be a dream come true if it happens. #nickonidol (sic),” tweeted Nick on Aug. 4.
Though nothing is set in stone, insiders claim that the JoBro is “pretty close” to inking a deal with the long-running reality series.
“Nick is pretty close to signing to be the ‘Idol’ judge. They flew him in to L.A. for final meetings,” said a source. “‘American Idol’ producers think he can help bring that younger demo to the show.”
While the producers are still finalizing things with Nick, it seems that they’re courting Pharrell Williams too! The source also dished that “everything is looking good, but they’re still working out the details.”
With Mariah, Nick and Pharrell on board, will you tune in to Idol next season?
