Nick Jonas Confirms American Idol Judge Rumors: “It Would Be A Dream Come True”
Jonas Brothers star Nick Jonas may join newly-signed judge Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson in a judge’s seat on American Idol.
The 19-year-old Broadway vet—he appeared on the Great White Way in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying—took to Twitter over the weekend to confirm rumors that he was in the running for one of the highly-coveted positions left vacant by departing judges Steve Tyler and Jennifer Lopez. “The rumors are true… I am being considered to be a judge on American Idol,” he tweeted on Sunday morning. “And it would be a dream come true if it happens. #nickonidol”
Nick isn’t the only famous name vying for a seat in between Mariah and Jackson. Pharrell Williams, Black Eyed Peas‘ lead singer Fergie, eighth season American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert, and country singers Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Willie Nelson, Keith Urban, and Miranda Lambert (wife of The Voice judge Blake Shelton) are all rumored to be in contention for the high-paying gig.
It also looks like “Reality TV Star” is currently the profession of choice for the Jonas Brothers with Joe Jonas currently starring on Fox’s The Choice and Kevin Jonas slated to appear in the upcoming E! series Married to Jonas with wife Danielle that premieres on August 19.
