A curious move!
American Idol might've found someone to sit between Jennifer Lopez & Keith Urban on the season 13 judge's panel!
And his name is Dr. Luke!
The 39-year-old musician, songwriter, & record producer isn't a household name yet, but perhaps that will change shortly!
He found fame on the guitar in the Saturday Night Live band, but moved on to help produce number one singles with several artists including Ke$ha, Katy Perry, and AI's original sweetheart, Kelly Clarkson!
We don't doubt Dr. Luke's coaching/judging qualifications, but it would be an unexpected move by Fox and friends considering the show's ratings struggle! He isn't exactly an A-list celebrity, which is what we all assumed the network would try to hire.
The network has reportedly been in talks with will.i.am, but negotiations apparently stalled because he wants more money than they're willing to offer!
So, how does Dr. Luke feel about potentially joining J.Lo and Keith on one of America's biggest and brightest stages?
He recently tweeted:
Ah, we see. He must be playing hard to get!
