Nick Jonas, of the boy band The Jonas Brothers, may fill in one of the two vacant seats at the “American Idol” judging panel. The 19-year-old “SOS” singer tweeted, “The rumors are true … I am being considered to be a judge on American Idol … And it would be a dream come true if it happens. #nickonidol.”
Singer Mariah Carey was confirmed as a new judge July 20, with sources revealing that the 42-year-old “Hero” singer will earn a whopping $18 million a year. Both Jonas and rapper-producer Pharrell Williams are likely contenders to take the place of Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson.
