Will Nick Jonas and Pharrell Williams be joining Mariah Carey at the American Idol judging table?
The boy bander and the rapper are front runners to fill the vacant seats left behind by Steven Tyler and J.Lo, according to Us Weekly.
"Nick is pretty close to signing to be the Idol judge. They flew him in to L.A last week for final meetings," a source tells the mag. Apparently producers think that the 19-year-old will help bring a younger demo to the show.
As far as the N.E.R.D lyricist, who has produced hit records for chart toppers like Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, he is working towards solidifying the deal but is still negotiating the terms of his contract.
Previous judges include Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Kara DioGuardi, Ellen Degeneres, and Ryan Seacrest.
A rep for FOX had no comment on the reports.
Do you think Pharrell and Nick would make good judges?
