Joe Was Honest On Idol
“He had a great time. He said that he was nice, but he also was honest, and that’s important. He said he found some really great people that he’s looking forward to see what their journeys are going to be like, and I’m happy that he was able to do that.”
-Jonas Brother and Administration frontman Nick Jonas on his brother Joe’s job as a guest judge on “American Idol,” which airs Tuesday night (January 26) at 8 p.m. on Fox. Joe shares the episode with “How I Met Your Mother” star Neil Patrick Harris. The show focuses on the auditions from Dallas, and according to brother and bandmate Nick, Joe’s approach to adjudicating talent borrows a little bit from everybody on “American Idol.” “I think he’s a mixture of [Simon, Randy and Kara],” Nick said. “And I think that having that balance of giving your honest opinion but giving some constructive criticism is important.”
This week’s audition episodes of “American Idol” bring in some of the highest-profile guests of the season. In addition to Jonas and Harris on Tuesday night, Wednesday night’s episode will feature opinions care of Katy Perry and Avril Lavigne. The show has already seen the likes of Mary J. Blige, Shania Twain, Victoria Beckham and Kristin Chenoweth, and this week’s judges promise to be the most entertaining in the show’s history. Will this week produce another “Pants on the Ground”? How many contestants will freak out because Joe Jonas is in the room? Stay tuned to MTV News for all the results and insight.
