"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," the Jonas Brothers star tweeted on Saturday, adding the hashtag "#nickonidol."
"Nick is pretty close to signing to be the 'Idol' judge," a source said, lending credence to his Twitter post, according to Contact Music. "They flew him in to L.A. for final meetings."
'''American Idol' producers think he can help bring that younger demo to the show,'" the source added.
Should the JoBro cast his lot with the "Idol" gang, it would still leave one open judging slot, as Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler quit earlier this summer, and Randy Jackson is slated to transition into a mentoring role.
As Contact Music reports, rapper and producer Pharrell Williams is angling for the final spot, and it appears he could be close to finalizing his contract.
''Everything is looking good," a source said, "but they're still working out details.''
