Dr. Luke to judge ‘American Idol’ – Confirmed

Confirmed: Dr. Luke is the third judge on American Idol Season 13.

Confirmed by E News:

Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez have a new seat partner on the American Idol judging panel.
E! News can confirm that music producer Dr. Luke has officially signed on as the 3rd judge for the Fox reality show.

This was not a good decision in my opinion, but I am still open to surprises.

However, I have a feeling that during the premiere in January 2014, even the most loyal fans will realize that the show is barely a skeleton of its old self and the show is done.

American Idol had a great run, but sadly, it’s over now.


Dr. Luke is closing a deal to judge American Idol 13 alongside Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban, Deadline reports. Boo. This is not the panel I was hoping for.

Dr. Luke is the producer for many hits including:

Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone”
Flo Rida’s “Right Round”
Kei$ha’s “Tik Tok”
Katy Perry’s “California Gurls”

But will he make a good judge? Sigh. I kinda lost interest all of a sudden. I wanted Scooter Braun.

Dr. Luke to judge ‘American Idol’ – Report

From Deadline:

Despite other names surfacing over the past week, I’ve learned that Dr. Luke is closing a deal to join Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez as the third judge on the upcoming 13th season of Fox’s American Idol. Additionally, original Idol judge Randy Jackson continues negotiations to replace Jimmy Iovine as in-house mentor.

When Dr. Luke’s name first surfaced as a leading contender for a judge gig on Idol, the news prompted headlines like “Dr. Who?” But while the general public may not be familiar with Dr. Luke, they are very familiar with a lot of his work.
