Kinda desperate….

Mariah Carey should now tell NO.

# 6

# 7

No…. JUST NO. He would be terrible!!!! I’ve heard him in interviews. He’s way too shy and awkward. He’s really irrelevant these days, also.

What is up with giving these kids who have no longevity in the industry the right to judge other people? My god. This guy was part of a bubblegum pop band a few years ago who are like hasbeens now.

Ridiculous!!!!!!! First Mariah Carey and now this has been is being considered as a judge. SERIOUSLY??? Why don’t you just go hire a bum off the street. Are the producers so desperate that they are considering anyone who throws their name in a hat. If AI producers are gonna be considering judges like these just cancel the show already. It’s bad enough that they hired J-Lo before and we got winners like Scotty (I REALLY SUCK) Mccreery and Phillip (SNOOZEFEST) Phillips. It’s time they realize this show is OVER!

Good thing I quit watching years ago. I like the guy but he’s still very young with a very lot to learn. I wouldn’t want to be up on that stage being judged by a 19 year old teen pop singer. I would want someone who has been in the business for a very long time long before Nick was even born.

The Jonas Brothers peaked like 5 years ago. Why would AI want a d-lister on the show? Well, unless they’re now trying to kill the show on purpose.

Oh please no…

He ‘s so cute and for those questionig his age, he may end up being the most mature in his approach to judging. Mariah thinks she’s 19 and Nick think he’s 30. perfect!

This move is better than Simon Cowell’s X Factor move with Demi Lovato. That girl is jacked up.

@anon: Anyone can think they act older than they are and at least Mariah has released music that adults buy. Here’s a reality check for you, when Mariah released her first album, Nick wasn’t even born yet, that’s longevity for you.

Sincerely awful choice and so yawn worthy. Mediocre talent with zero charisma. Not an interesting choice in the least. Why??? So many better choices. I would go with Adam Lambert. Now there is a talent extraordinaire with enough charisma to power a solar energy plant!!

Oh yeah let’s make Adam Lambert a judge because he is so successful! Oh wait….
Reality check: Nick Jonas has worked with way more influential artists than Lambert ever will (stevie wonder, seal, john legend, jamie fox…etc..). Adam Lambert may be older, but Nick has successfully been in show business longer.. (Smash, anyone? Les Mis? Anyone?)
If not Nick (which might be chosen for the demographic of viewers he would draw in), then someone who people AT LEAST care about. Seriously.
Adam Lambert is virtually a nobody. Sorry bout it.

Nick may not be “adult” music- whatever that means. But it’s all about who they want to watch the show. I’m absolutely POSITIVE that no one above the age of 12 and below the age of 40 watches it… hence Nick Jonas, or someone who’d appeal to the teen/twenties.
Duh, people.

@Jennica Panettiere:

No self-respecting adult has bought a Mariah Carey album in the last 17 years. She is now famous for being famous.

I think he would be a great addition to the team. He was always my favorite Jonas brother…


Are you kidding??? Where have you been for the past 3 years? Adam Lambert is perfect for this job . Experienced( Project Runway, Majors and Minors, AI mentor), charismatic, eloquent, intelligent, talented (What a voice!), honest, witty and easy on the eyes! I know a lot of people who would tune in just to see Adam.

@Jane: Adam just fronted Queen for 6 shows in Europe last month and Slash said he only came on AI because of Adam. Adam’s career is just taking off whereas Jonas’ is over. He was a Disney kid star. He’s a nice guy but is not outgoing enough to judge others. He’s too shy.

@Nan: SO TRUE!
