It's like we're playing American Idol musical chairs!
As we speak the country crooner is in the "final negotiation stages with producers to take the third judging spot on the show." It's only a matter of hours before it's official!
- He can bring his wifey Nicole Kidman to the show
- His country background gives him a compelteltly different perspective than the other new Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.
- AAAAND they can have him for (relatively) dirt cheap!
Once the Aussie joins the crew there will be only one seat left to fill!
Sadly our source tells us that the fourth judges seat will NOT be going to another lady-judge. Apparently the show's sexist heads honchos don't think a female dominated panel will work. (Sorry Alanis Morissette fans!)
