Dr - Dr. Luke's Protege Confirms He's Idol's New Man

Hitmaker Dr. Luke is primed to announce he'll be joining Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez as a judge on American Idol, according to his latest protege.

Singer Becky G confirmed the big news to reporters on the red carpet at the MTv Video Music Awards on Sunday (25Aug13), insisting she is really excited about the pop producer becoming a Tv star.

She told The Hollywood Reporter, "It's gonna happen. I think he'll do great and I'm really excited about it."

And Jason DeRulo, who has recorded with Dr, Luke, was also singing the producer's praises, adding, "I think he would be perfect. There's nobody bigger than Dr. Luke in terms of production and actually making a hit song."

The hitmaker, real name Lukasz Gottwald, is expected to announce his Idol spot in the coming weeks. Urban confirmed he would be returning as a judge for a second season earlier this summer (13) and Lopez has yet to confirm she's back on board after taking a year off.

Auditions for the 13th season of American Idol begin later this year and the show returns to Tv in January (14).
