Nick Jonas has confirmed he’s in the running to be a judge on American Idol. Following a report from US Weekly that revealed Jonas and rapper-producer Pharrell Williams were being considered for the spots, Jonas took to Twitter to confirm the show’s interest.
“The rumors are true,” wrote Jonas. “I am being considered to be a judge on American Idol, and it would be a dream come true if it happens,” adding a “#nickonidol” hashtag.
American Idol has seen a major shift in its judging panel, with Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler’s recent departures and Randy Jackson set to move into a mentoring role on the show. Mariah Carey has signed on as a judge on Idol with an $18 million deal, and Charlie Sheen has expressed interest in joining the panel.
