Mariah Carey getting approval over Nick Jonas joining American Idol?

By
Mariah Carey has reportedly been granted final approval over the American Idol judging panel.

Jonas confirmed earlier this month that he is in negotiations to join the Fox series, saying it would be a "dream come true" if a deal is reached.

The 'Who I Am' singer is apparently close to reaching an agreement with American Idol producers, but an insider has claimed that Carey will first have to approve Jonas.

"He hasn't met up with Mariah yet, but if she signs off on it, he will be the next judge," the source told Hollywood Life.

The informant added: "It's completely her decision. If they have chemistry, and she's for it, it will be official."

Carey reached her own deal to join American Idol in late July. She is expected to earn $17 million (£11 million) for the upcoming season.

Nick Jonas recently received the endorsement of his sibling Joe Jonas, who said his brother would be "great" as an American Idol judge.
