Justin & Selena are on next season’s short list for new judges, a new report claims.
While this latest American Idol rumor sounds completely ridiculous, we have to admit, it would definitely get us to tune in next season! Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are at the top of producers’ list of dream judges for next season, according to a new report from RadarOnline.com, along with P. Diddy and Pink.
Producer Nigel Lythgoe is reportedly “desperate” to get the misguided reality show back on track, as the feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj — which was supposed to attract a bigger audience — has actually turned many viewers off. The source explains:
It’s been a lackluster season for Idol and everyone involved with the show is well aware of it so that’s why producers are franticly working on lining up big name stars for season 14. There’s more drama going on behind the scenes of the show than on the stage, and that’s why there’s a major overhaul in the works. A telling sign was that the highlight of the season was Mariah and Nicki’s explosive feud that was leaked on the web – and that was before the season even aired. Producers have been trying to recreate that buzz ever since and it hasn’t worked – the public isn’t buying it. The judges don’t have real chemistry, and there’s no real standout contestant.
Both Justin, 19, and Selena, 20, have a relationship with Idol — they’ve appeared separately on the show’s stage, belting out their respective hits — but neither celeb has ever hinted at a future as a reality show judge.
