Move Over, Mariah! Nick Jonas & Pharrell May Be Your Fellow Idol Judges!

| Filed under: PharrellMariah CareyPaula AbdulAmerican IdolJennifer LopezJonas BrothersX Factor

Nick Jonas Pharrell Idol

So maybe this Idol judging switch-up IS getting interesting, after all!

As of now, Mariah Carey is the only judge signed on for American Idol’s twelfth season, taking over for Jennifer Lopez!

Now, reportedly, Randy Jackson will only be taking on a mentoring role this season, with Steven Tyler out for good.

So who can fill the remaining seats at the judges’ table???

Supposedly, the youngest Jonas Brother, Nick Jonas is a frontrunner, along with rapper/producer Pharrell Williams!

An insider claims:

"Nick is pretty close to signing to be the Idol judge. They flew him into L.A. last week for final meetings."

Well dayum! Seems like they really ARE moving quickly with these replacements, huh?

A source also states that the show’s producers think that if Nick were to take the position, he would bring in a younger demographic to the show.

As for Pharrell??

Reportedly, he is currently in contract negotiations and everything is “looking good.”

We previously saw Pharrell take on a similar position on the first season of The X Factor USA, when he served as a guest mentor alongside Paula Abdul, during the judges’ houses round!

Skateboard P is definitely in tune with what’s hot in music and knows how to spot talent and we think Nick would bring in the teen fans, as well!

It'll be interesting to see if these guys actually get signed on!!!

    I'd respect Pharell's opinion. He's got quite a resume.

    Nick Jonas is overrated and single handedly RUINED the 25th anniversary of Les Miserables with his WEAK singing and his WEAK acting. I would not take advice from him if you paid me to. He is where he is because of how he looks. What is he going to tell AI contestants? Be prettier and kiss more industry ass? Just NO!

    I'd be more than estactic if Nick Jonas joined on. :) Would watch every night, thats for sure.

    Re: Kyle73 – He didn't ruin Les Mis 25TH anniversary but i'll say he's voice wasn't strong enough compared to the other cast members. You should go to youtube and check his perfomance on Hairspray. He did it really well. Search "It takes two" and u will see he's a great singer. Or listen to the EP of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, "Rosemary" and "I believe in you" are my favorites. He has improved a lot.

    Are you kdding me with these names??? U might as well just have Mariah be the sole judge. They need big names to sit alongside Mariah Carey. One person older then Mariah, and one person younger. Pharell is talented but we need big names! Wtf is idol thinking??????

    Re: Kyle73 – you are stupid! not because he is a jonas brother, will do bad at all!

    I invite you to go to youtube and see videos of LES MISERABLES! you will be surprised of the change of voice and talent that has this guy

    also the fact that Pharrel is one of Miley's producers on her new album makes me laugh. Like I can so see her and pharrel performing her new single on idol, it would be so awkward for them haha.

    I think Nick Jonas and Pharrell are both very talented and qualified. They've both had a lot of experience in the industry.

    Re: Kyle73 – I agree he did not measure up to the rest of the cast, but I don't think he ruined it in any way. He was good, just not amazing!
