The doctor is out for Idol seat
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.
