According to E! News, music producer (real name: Lukasz Gottwald) has been selected by producers after efforts to land Kanye West, Diddy and will.i.am  fell through.

He will join Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez on the 2014 panel.

Luke is not a major name, of course, but neither was Simon Cowell when Idol premiered.

The songwriter-producer is behind such hits as Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone," Kesha's "Tik Tok" and Katy Perry's "California Gurls."

Are you excited for Dr. Luke to judge American Idol?

UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter now says Luke will NOT judge Idol.


I think you should beg USHER. He was fabulous on The Voice


Unfortunately they need big big names of all 4 judges ( and nor Randy ) to bring people back


I think it's a great idea to have a successful record producer as a judge, even if most people never heard of him. Most people had never heard of Randy Jackson 12 years ago either.


Of all the possibles he's the best of the bunch. At least he knows music. Still can't abide Jlo and all her 24 carat phoniness.


..........so welcome the Losers Of America?


American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
