Selena Gomez being eyed as ‘American Idol’ judge
Los Angeles, Sep 21 (IANS) Singer Selena Gomez is reportedly being eyed as a judge along with singer Katy Perry for the singing reality show “American Idol”.
“Producers think that Selena would be great to join the judging panel because she would bring in a younger crowd for ratings. She’d be considered the nice judge and they would love her to join because the impact she has with social media,” a source told hollywoodlife.com.
“They are putting together a proposal for her and are hoping she will accept it and join the show, it’s a long shot but they are taking the chance to get her. They’d love to have her signed up and all judges by mid October,” the source added.
