Well, now I’ve seen everything. Nineteen-year-old boy bander Nick Jonas confirmed yesterday that he’s in the running for a judge position on American Idol. "The rumors are true," Jonas tweeted. "I am being considered to be a judge on American Idol and it would be a dream come true if it happens. #nickonidol."
Nick’s cute and all, but other than several years making teenyboppers scream and a run on Broadway in How To Succeed In Business, what are his qualifications as a cultural tastemaker? After all, he has Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler’s shoes to fill. Jonas would be joining recently hired Mariah Carey, who has also been around the block more than a few times.
Perhaps Nick Jonas just wants to get in on the TV action: his brother Kevin Jonas is starring on a terrrrrrrible-looking new reality show with his wife Danielle called Married To Jonas and brother Joe (AKA the hot one) is on some D-list singing competition show on the CW called called The Next: Fame Is At Your Doorstep. (You’d better be getting paid a lot of money, Joe.)
If Nick Jonas does get hired for American Idol, I will really be surprised that Fox was so desperate for the "youth demo."
