Dr Luke 'Wins Third Seat On American Idol Panel'
Super producer reported to have secured judging role on show...
The songwriter and producer of hits such as Katy Perry's I Kissed A Girl and original Idol winner Kelly Clarkson's Since U Been Gone is claimed by E! News to be joining Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban on the show.
Urban is the only judge to have been officially confirmed by TV network Fox, but J-Lo is understood to have agreed to return to the show and her boyfriend recently let the cat out of the bag.
Dr Luke, real-name Lucasz Gottwald, has also worked with Pink, Bon Jovi, Britney Spears, Flo Rida, Jessie J, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna among others.
The Voice coach Will.I.Am had been in the hunt for the second male slot on the panel, but was recently reported to have dropped out after negotiations faltered - returning to the BBC show instead.
