Nick Jonas Will Be ‘American Idol’ Judge If Mariah Carey Approves

A production source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Nick is ’99 percent’ confirmed for the gig, but it’s ultimately Mariah’s decision.

Nick Jonas recently tweeted that becoming an American Idol judge would be a “dream come true,” and now HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively that Mariah Carey is the only thing standing in the way of his dream becoming a reality! “He hasn’t met up with Mariah yet, but if she signs off on it, he will be the next judge,” an Idol source reveals. “It’s completely her decision. If they have chemistry, and she’s for it, it will be official.”

Is this the part where I write an impassioned letter to Mariah, begging her to give Nick a thumbs up? Because I’ll do it.

There are so many reasons why Nick would make the perfect judge — he’s talented, in touch with the young people, etc. — but most importantly, it would round out the Jonas reality TV trifecta. Kevin Jonas has E!’s Married to JonasJoe Jonas has The CW’s The Next, and it’s only fair that Nick gets a show of his own.

Do you agree that Nick would make the perfect Idol judge? Cast your vote below, then drop me a comment with more of your thoughts:

Nick Jonas would make an amazing Idol judge. He knows alot about music, and I think that he can give the contestants what they need to achieve greatness!

I would also write Mariah a very passiOnate letter, and
honestly if his dol fate is really in her hands and he doesn’t get it
Mariah Carey will always and forever be hated by many Jonas fans we are a spicey group of girls with a whole hell of a lot of sass for anyone who fucks with our boys

YES …. IDOL WILL STAY AT THE TOP OF MY FAVE T.V. SHOW LIST IF THIS HAPPENS .. AND IT WOULD BE GREAT FOR THE SHOW CONSIDERING THE SIMPLE FACT THAT THERE ARE JONAS BROTHER FANS STILL WAITING ON THEIR COMEBACK…. (ME) They can stall for now… I’ll understand .. :).

For me Nick is too goof for American Idol but if he likes the show… If Mariah meets him she’ll surely fall in love with him. He’s so mature and knows a lot about music business since he started working at 7 years old.
