American Idol looking at “dream team” of Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Pink & Diddy? – Report
According to a report today, American Idol execs have a “dream team” of a new panel in their minds – Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Pink, and Diddy. They still want big names stars, unlike The X Factor. Do you think this is true?
So, what do you do? According to Radar Online, you go back to the same drawing board again, roll the celeb judge dice one more time and hope for a lucky seven this time around. Quoting anonymous sources, the site reported on Monday (May 6) that producer Nigel Lythgoe’s desperate plan to boost ratings is to assemble a “dream team” of new judges that includes former (and maybe current again?) couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, Pink and Sean “Diddy” Combs. That would indicate that not only are Minaj, Carey and Keith Urban headed for one-and-done status, but that after 12 seasons sole original judge Randy Jackson might be on his way out as well. In this scenario, only host Ryan Seacrest’s job is safe.
While a spokesperson for “Idol” offered a no comment at press time on the rumor, the anonymous source told Radar that after a lackluster season, “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.”
Quite frankly the odds are a million that any of them would sign on. Bieber or Selena would be very good – just not together. Pink would be good too. Diddy’s stock has declined since he butchered Danity Kane. What are your thoughts

So they want a bunch of flash in the pan teeny boppers? Plus there would be huge problems with the selena/justin on again off again thing. And seriously, P Diddy? The only one who has the right to give music advice is Pink.
BARF! This combination of judges would have no spark together whatsoever. Justin Bieber has no business judging any talent competition plus I cant see him sitting down long enough for even one judging session with his limited attention span.
Selena Gomez might be Ok -- but nothing special. They would obviously be picking her for audience appeal -- which is part of the reason Idol is failing. They forget that the judges panel is NOT the reason why the viewers watch the show.
Pink would actually be very good on her own -- but I don't see her fitting in with the other 3 judges. I think she would wind up being very unhappy with the group.
And Diddy? How in the world would he be on anyone's dream team of judges? Similar to Justin B, he has no business judging a talent competition.
If this story is true then the show is really doomed forever.
anything diddy touches eventually goes down in bright red flames so lets try this again... i say start from the bottom. get a new group of producers and work your way up
