The Dr. will NOT see you now…
We thought American Idol would be prescribed a healthy dosage of music producer Dr. Luke as judge next season, but alas, it was not meant to be it appears!
According to a source, the doctor-who-would-be-judge had to back out due to a conflict of interest, and a busy schedule (aka too many patients).
Dr. Luke signed a deal with Sony Music back in 2011, which creates major issues since as judge on Idol he'd be working with and developing talent for Universal Music Group, which is direct competition with Sony.
In addition, a source also confirmed that Dr. Luke realized the time commitment would be too great:
