Scooter Braun is in talks to judge season 13 of “American Idol.” The talent manager who is best known for managing Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen and The Wanted is reportedly in talks to take the coveted third judge’s seat.
“Jennifer [Lopez] loves Scooter and feels he’d be an excellent choice,” a source told Us Weekly. “She would love him to be a judge.”
Apparently, the only thing standing in the way is Braun wants to be the one to manage the new winner of the singing competition. Unfortunately for him, creator of the show Simon Fuller already has that job.
According to reports, producer Dr. Luke is also in talks to join the show.
Lopez and Keith Urban have already been confirmed to return for “Idol’s” 13th season.
