Say It Ain't So! Nick Jonas Wants To Be A Judge On 'American Idol'
"The singer and Broadway star (Nick Jonas) confirmed reports that he might possibly be joining American Idol are true. `I am being considered to be a judge on American Idol, and it would be a dream come true if it happens,` he tweeted Saturday."
It might be a dream come true for Nick Jonas if he is hired to be a judge on "American Idol", but it would be a nightmare for Idol fans.
At 19 Jonas is too young and inexperienced to judge emerging talent; from his perspective Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen are music icons.
Mariah Carey will be too protective of her image to say an unkind word to any of the wannabes, and Randy Jackson is all bark and no bite.
The last thing Idol needs is another goody-goody judge; Jonas would probably have a word of prayer with the hopefuls he rejects.
Idol needs a Marilyn Manson or an Iggy Pop to serve as a judge, somebody who bears a resemblance to Simon Cowell.
Nick Jonas? Hell no!
