Nick Jonas Confirms He's In Talks To Join 'American Idol' As Judge: [ send to a friend ]
Nick Jonas has confirmed rumors that he's a frontrunner to join the 'American Idol' judges table.
"The rumors are true … I am being considered to be a judge on American Idol," the 19-year-old Jonas said on Twitter Saturday. "And it would be a dream come true if it happens."
However, it appears producers are trying to lure in the younger demographic with Jonas being a contender for the job. Much like the choice of Demi Lovato on 'The X Factor'.
In fact, it highlights the fact that 'Idol' is now moving full steam ahead and finally acknowledging its ratings decline.
A few seasons ago, the reality competition would have never considered a 19-year-old for its panel.
If it happens, Jonas would be the youngest judge in 'Idol's twelve season history. He recently guest-starred on 'Smash'.
