Joe Jonas To Judge American Idol, Maybe Kelly Clarkson

Joe Jonas (that’s the middle Jonas Brother) will serve as a guest judge at next week’s audition series for the reality competition series.

“At this stage it doesn’t look like Paula [Abdul] will be replaced by one person,” an insider told Pop Tarts. “The celebrity judges are working really well for now.”

Other celebs joining Season 9 regular judges Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi include Shania Twain, Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham and Mary J Blige.

The original American Idol Kelly Clarkson is in negotiations to also guest judge.

im excited about this new celebrity judge thing!
when does AI start?

i wonder what it’ll be like! :)

what about enrique iglesias?

Joe Jonas is a cartoon character. These contestants are going to be judged by a cartoon character, who will be a “Dancing With the Stars” contestant in about 5 years when his fans grow up and realize his “music” is tragically bad.

And one more thing…

I would be all kinds of offended if I was on American Idol and got dissed by someone like Joe Jonas. I mean he HAS NO TALENT…like AT ALL.

Joe is HOT SWEET FUNNY and he has a GREAT VOICE!!

I can’t wait to see him.

What kind of talent does Joe have in singing?! I’ve watched videos of him singing live, and the boy can’t even differentiate a sharp from a flat.

@mickey: I agree, lol

i love joe and all, but i really cant see him being an AI judge.
i cant see him criticizing and breaking people’s dreams.
its not very disney-esque to do that is it?

i love joe and all but i just cant see him being an AI judge.
cant really see him criticizing and breaking dreams.

Good for kelly clarkson she is the best idol with the best talent by far, but I agree with the earlier comment that if you sing for joe jonas then you are gonna sound better than him no matter what you sound like. Joe jonas cannot sing worth sh*t and to all the people who think he does are just deaf and being manipulated by disney to gain more profits. Also, we all know in 5 years he’ll be strolling along the streets of san francisco with his butt buddy with his career behind him.

Who are these people. Are they good enough to replace Paula.

This is sickening. He has no musical talent so how on earth can he be expected to judge others’ talent!?!?! This show is turning into a joke and that’s coming from a huge fan of it.

I love Kelly Clarkson. She is the whole reason I am a fan of A.I. She is so talented, and the best American Idol ever. I hope she will also sing on there if she guest judges. SHE IS AMAZING LIVE. Now I am looking forward to the new A.I. season.

Wtf? The Jonas boys only have like 3 songs. I don’t even think any of them did that well…. wtf? what makes him sooo eligible to judge? Who says he even has any talent himself?!

I didn’t know the requirement to judge a singing contest is to sound like you’re releasing a hernia. Hmm…Interesting.

if they take someone they should take Kelly Clarkson because at least the should take someone who can sign well

Joe Jonas will be a GUEST JUDGE on American Idol 9th season!!!


Why not, Nick? Nick can do all things in music, like singing, playing guitar, piano and drum.

Anyway, I believe Joe can do at his best as one of the famous celebrities judges for American Idol.

American Idol 9th season would be so amazing.
