Nick Jonas Says 'American Idol' Judge Rumors Are True

Posted: Updated:

Nick Jonas is in talks to become an "American Idol" judge for Season 12 of the Fox reality competition series.

The pop star confirmed the news to his fans on Saturday via Twitter:

Earlier this week, Us Weekly reported that Jonas and rapper Pharrell Williams were in talks to fill the two seats left vacant when Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez announced their back-to-back "Idol" departures.

"Nick is pretty close to signing to be the 'Idol' judge," one insider told Us Weekly. "They flew him in to L.A. last week for final meetings."

As for Williams, who has yet to confirm or deny the "Idol" reports, a source told the magazine: "Everything is looking good, but they're still working out details."

But is there room for both Jonas and Williams? Reports claim that Randy Jackson -- the only original "American Idol" judge still standing -- will be moving on to a mentor role on the show. Mariah Carey was recently revealed as Season 12's first new judge so we could be seeing both Jonas and Williams on the panel next season.
