As American Idol fans wait to hear who will step up and fill the judging spots vacated by Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, so many big names have been brought up as possibilities. Jon Bon Jovi, who was recently suggested to be a good choice by J LO, will not be one of the possibilities, though. Sorry to disappoint fans, but Jon is just too busy for the show! More after the jump…
If you are anything like me, you were probably hoping upon hearing the mere mention of his name, that Jon Bon Jovi would be invited to join the American Idol judging panel, and eventually take the gig. That’s not likely though, as sources claim that the singer is just too busy for the show. A close source to Jon recently told TMZ: “With all systems go for a new album and a mega-tour on the horizon, Jon wouldn’t be able to give those aspiring singers the guidance they deserve.”
While that may be depressing news for fans, the show takes a lot of time and dedication, and the source added: “Jon wouldn’t commit to anything unless he can give 100%. With planning for the next album already underway, he’s focused on the band.” Bummer. Jon Bon Jovi would have definitely made a great addition to the show, but there are plenty of other big names out there who could also breathe life back into the dying show – they’re just not as dreamy to look at!
Meanwhile, rumor has it that both Charlie Sheen and Aretha Franklin want a shot at judging – no, I am not kidding! With so many names on the table, we have to ask – who do you think would make a great addition to the American Idol panel? Comment and share your thoughts with us below!
