In news that will make adults groan and young girls swoon, Carly Rae Jepsen made her own suggestion for a new Idol host to take over next season. Jepsen has The Bieber Fever, although it doesn’t come as a big surprise – Jepsen owes a large amount of her fame and success to the Biebs. Jepsen, who is an Idol (Canadian Idol) graduate herself, was signed on Bieber’s manager’s label after a recommendation from Justin himself. The pair is currently on tour together on Bieber’s Believe world tour.
Jepsen debuted her new song, Take a Picture, last night on Idol. Take a Picture was written with the help of Idol’s season 12 viewers via the Coca-Cola “Perfect Harmony” program. Viewers could contribute lyrics and performance elements to the song in eight phases over the past season, and the product was performed by Jepsen last night on the show live.
After dispensing her own advice to Idol finalists Kree Harrison and Candice Glover, Jepsen went on to say that she would make a “terrible” Idol judge. “I’d be too motherly,” said Jepsen. Jepsen, however, feels that friend and fellow performer Justin Bieber would be just right for the gig. "Justin would be awesome," says Jepsen. "He's got lots of great opinions when it comes to the music world and he's very experienced especially for being so young."
I don’t think I really need to ask to know how most people would respond to this suggestion (with a resounding ‘NO’) but I will anyways…Do you think Bieber would make a good American Idol judge?
