American Idol Judge Joe Jonas -- FIRST LOOK!

American Idol Judge Joe Jonas -- FIRST LOOK!

Joe Jonas takes his place next to Randy Jackson in this first look at his guest judge stint on American Idol.

The 20-year-old musician, who recorded the episode over the summer in Dallas, Texas, joined regular judges Randy, Kara DioGuardi and Simon Cowell in helping to find the next singing sensation.

Joe dished to the Daily Record, “It was fun but I felt bad because I didn’t want to offend anyone or hurt their feelings. Simon is a very honest person. But he is right almost all of the time.”

Joe‘s episode will air on January 26. American Idol, with new judge Ellen DeGeneres, returns for its 9th season on Tuesday, January 12th.

    Why Joe???
    I would’ve wanted to see NICK JONAS or ZAC EFRON as a judge! :)

  • florencia


  • amy

    @ZanessaFanForever: I agree, I would of loved to see Zac do it :)

  • zacs


    but i like joe too.. but zac efron is amazing!!

  • hee

    @ZanessaFanForever: Because Joe’s awesomer than Nick & Zac combined if you’re mentally over the age of 14?

  • hee

    I’ve never watched an episode of AI ever…but of course I gotta watch for Joe. Very cool.

    I think out of all of the judges, he’s probably the only actual “American Idol” in real life, isn’t he?

  • ms. a

    yes, Zac E is amazing, but he doesnt really, you know, write songs or anything like Joe does. And Zac has said many times he wants to focus more on acting than on singing, where as Joe does both :p Love you Joe :D

  • Natalie

    uggh i realy dont like him he annoys the hell out of me just when i look at his fugly face… sorry fans but can’t they just bring anyone instead of him

  • linda

    zac efron and vanessa hudgens, of course. joe? c’mon, hes like nobody? god

  • nathalia


  • CS

  • You’reGross

    @Natalie: What? Eff off why are you even here?

  • kal.

    i’m so excited. (:

  • Ashley

    Joe is the sweetest guy ever but I don’t think he should be a judge. He’s good performing at JB’s concerts but he’s not professional. He’s probably gonna be judging guys who are better singers than he is. Don’t get me wrong, I like him just not as a judge.

  • peacelovejesus

    im gonna miss paula but i am super excited for ellen to come on shes hilarious and joe……..idk joe…..i think honestly he’ll make everything a little more worse. i mean that’ll draw in some girls who cant even sing to american idol JUST to see joe and talk to him. thats wat i believe

    Zac cant sing for shit thats why. I mean he simply cant judge whens hes not any good either. Without his pretty face he would be literally a nobody.

    Zac Efron? What the heck!? The guy had to have his voice dubbed in the first HSM atleast Joe did his vocals in Camp Rock and actually has a career as a musician unlike Zac.

    I can’t wait to see how Joe judged the people who auditioned!! I love his sweet face!!!! :))

  • sherydan

    @Joe Jonas Cute Crazy lover:

    Who’s jelous and why would they be?

  • camilA

    JOE é lindo né gente vcs gosta dele

  • vivi


  • dancing in the street

    Wow where does Zac Efron come into this? He’s more of an actor than a singer though his singer isn’t too bad either. I’m so excited to see Joe on the show! I used to love American Idol but I stopped watching it since it pretty much became a joke. Paula left, Simon’s leaving, there’s that Kara chick, and now there’s like 5 judges. wtf. It started with 3 judges: Paula, Simon, and Randy. And it should stay that way. Guest judges are fine but those are the three people that everyone wants to see! AI is going to lose pretty much 90% of their viewers when Simon leaves. He’s the man.

    Joe Jonas is so hot happy it’s him :D
