Bruno Mars: Your Next American Idol Judge!?

| Filed under: TV NewsAmerican IdolBruno Mars

bruno mars american idol judge


He just might be if executives have their way.

And we approve!

Now that American Idol seems to be revamping their judge's panel yet again, Bruno Mars could find himself in one of those spinning cushy chairs.

In fact, he could find himself scoring a spot VERY soon if things go right. A source revealed:

"He’s super talented, amazingly charismatic, and well-liked by industry professionals and young fans. [Producers] are looking into making him an offer very soon. They’re looking to lock down next seasons judging panel sooner than later."

But he's not the only one who might be negotiating an offer any day now.

We knew a couple former Idols were under consideration, but it sounds like Idol knows who they want to lock down as the source added:

"They’re currently happy going with a three-person judge panel, and would really like to add a former Idol to the panel. Harry Connick Jr., Kelly Clarkson and Bruno Mars is their so-called ‘dream team.’"

Well, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson will always be our dream team, but this would be a damn good backup team!

What do YOU think about this trio?

    That sounds AMAZING. I would absolutely 100% watch if their "dream team" comes true. I love all of those judges, they're down to earth & hilarious!!!

    Naaaaah, Bruno Mars is too cool for IDOL. Just cancel American Idol coz I'm sick of it. And most of the so-called winners are not worthy of being hailed as the "winner" and some of the most deserving contestants are ended up being eliminated. Can I just ask, where the hell are the Idol winners? And what are they up to these days? Haven't heard anything from them… Not even a hit single? Really? I'm LOOOOOOOOLing

    He's certainly qualified. It would depend on his busy busy busy booking schedule.

    Bruno has sold out concerts from June 2013 to March in 2014. He does not have time for that :)

    Why would someone at that level of success even consider joining a show that's past it's prime? Plus, "celebrity" judges tend to be too nice because they're really just there to push their album, not help contestants. This headline is Idol grasping at straws and trying to seem relevant. I understand hiring Industry insiders or past contestants, but big names come off as sellouts and I don't see it as a good PR move. Do you, Perez? Does anyone?

    iF BRUNO MARS became a judge not only would i watch EVERY episode i would audition too. But i doubt this would happen
    1) When Bruno was a nobody american idol rejected him ohh how the tables have flipped
    2) his busy schedule.. he has a tour scheduled till summer 2014
    3) American Idol is a flop they should just cancel. If he should do anything it should be the voice
    4) i would hate for Bruno Mars to be over exposed
    lol they should try Bieber hahaha thats how you crash and burn a show

    I've heard quite a few names thrown out as potential new judges. I don't care who they pick. After forcing Nicki "The Clown" Minaj on us this season, that show is dead to me.

    Re: Maria – Ain't nobody got time for that :P He's too good for Idol. He should keep making brilliant music. There will be time for him to be a judge (maybe when he hits 50 or something like that) :)
