Believe it or not, American Idol is about to get started with season 13 of the show this fall, and maybe it will be lucky 13 for them now that they have a brand new judging panel finally in place!
Last season’s new judge Keith Urban is set to return next season, along with another former Idol judge – Jennifer Lopez! After a two-year hiatus from the show, J-Lo is returning to the show to lend her music expertise to the contestants.
The newest judge to join the show is a well-known music producer Dr. Luke (real name Lukasz Gottwald), according to E! News. Dr. Luke has produced dozens of pop hits including Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl” and Idol winner Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone.”
The new season of American Idol kicks off January 15, 2014. Listen to the full Entertainment Report below to find out which stars reportedly turned down the judging gig!
