Only one spot is left on the American Idol judging panel now that Jennifer Lopez is (almost) officially back, but who does she want to warm the third coveted seat?!
Jennifer is lobbying hard for none other than managing phenomenon, Scooter Braun.
The man behind teen idols The Wanted, Carly Rae Jepsen, Ariana Grande, AND Justin Bieber is negotiating a deal now.
A source spilled:
"Jennifer loves Scooter and feels he'd be an excellent choice."
We couldn't agree more! Obviously, Scooter knows how to spot that 'It' factor that makes a star.
The only snag in Jen's masterful musical plan??! Scooter insists he manage the winner of AI, but creator Simon Fuller is unlikely to let that honor go.
If Simon truly does want to save AI, we suggest he swallow his pride and hand the reigns over to the industry stud.
Scooter could be this sinking ship's ONLY hope!
Do YOU think Scooter would be a smart addition to the American Idol judging panel?
