It’s a definite possibility, according to the singer. This weekend, Nick Jonas tweeted confirmation in response to the rumors that had been flying around late last week that he could be signing up as a judge on American Idol:

The rumors are true… I am being considered to be a judge on American Idol, and it would be a dream come true if it happens. #nickonidol” – 12:07 PM – 4 Aug 12

And as fans expressed their happiness over the possibility, Jonas followed up by tweeting:

Loved seeing all your amazing response to #NickOnIdol keep it coming!”

With Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez bidding good-bye to AI, the judging panel was temporarily down to just Randy Jackson. However, on July 23rd Mariah Carey was officially confirmed to take a seat at the judge’s table for at least one year, leaving just one seat to be filled. In addition to the Jonas rumors, there’s been speculation that a former Idol contestant may be brought in to judge the show.
