Enrique Iglesias Offered Judge Spot on American Idol.
Well…hello there awesome noticias. Just a few days ago, EW.com reported that they have sources confirming that Enrique Iglesias received a firm offer of $4 million to join the judges panel on American Idol. As most of you know, AI has essentially started from scratch this year as far as judges go…and Enrique is a not-that-surprising choice for a new addition to the team. Porque…you may ask?
First off, this isn’t the first time Enrique has been offered a gig as a reality show judge. He has a history of turning down these types of offers: passing on a spot hosting X Factor and a rumored offer with NBC for a seat on The Voice. He would have been great for any of those shows…maybe the 3rd time will be the charm! Segundo, he does have some time in his schedule…after just wrapping the awesome summer tour with Jennifer Lopez. Who knows, maybe they discussed the offer while on tour together and JLo gave Enrique some AI insights. (fun images of JLo giving Ricky career advice over drinks happening in my head right now…)
While Fox and producers have only confirmed Mariah Carey and have no commentws on any of the rumored new judges, other possible estrellas on the list include Nicki Minaj, Adam Lambert, Lenny Kravitz, and Keith Urban.
No matter which way they go, it seems to me there will be a very diverse group on the judging panel of American Idol next year, which returns to Fox in January. Stay tuned and we will update you when/if we have confirmation of Enrique-Idol!!
