The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

DR Luke (pic­tured) will not be join­ing Amer­i­can Idol, de­spite pre­vi­ous re­ports. Dr Luke’s pro­tege Becky G con­firmed ru­mours the singer was join­ing the singing com­pe­ti­tion show’s 13th sea­son as a judge. ‘‘It’s gonna hap­pen. I think he’ll do great and I’m re­ally ex­cited about it,’’ she said. How­ever, be­cause of a record label con­flict, Dr Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, has been forced to give up a pos­si­ble role on Idol, says The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter. Ear­lier this year, Aus­tralian coun­try mu­sic star Keith Ur­ban an­nounced he would be back for a sec­ond sea­son as a judge. Jennifer Lopez is also re­port­edly back on board af­ter tak­ing a year off.
