Dr. Luke will not be joining “American Idol” as a judge. Opposed to what was previously reported today, the music producer is unable to join the reality competition because of a conflict of interest.

It seems Dr. Luke was very close to signing on the dotted line, until he remembered that he signed a label deal with Sony Music in 2011. However, it’s Universal Music Group that holds all the music rights to for “Idol.”

“He really loves his artists and wants to build up the label,” a source told The Hollywood Reporter. “Luke wants to build an entertainment company” and together with Sony Music CEO, he decided taking himself out of the running “was the best thingĀ for all parties.”

It seems, however, that Justin Bieber‘s manager Scooter Braun is still one of the show’s top contenders to take the third judges’ seat.

Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez have already been confirmed as judges for season 13 of “American Idol.”
