Dr - Dr. Luke Will Not Be Joining American Idol - Report

Dr. Luke will not be joining American Idol, despite previous reports.

On Sunday (25Aug13), Dr. Luke's protege Becky G confirmed rumours the Since U Been Gone hitmaker was joining the singing competition show's 13th season as a judge.

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

However, because of a label conflict, Dr. Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, has been forced to give up a possible role on Idol, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A source says, "Luke wants to build an entertainment company... and after a lot of conversations, both Luke and Sony Music CEO Doug Morris came to the mutual agreement that taking Dr. Luke out of the Idol running was the best thing for all parties."

Earlier this summer (13), Keith Urban announced he would be back for a second season as a judge and Jennifer Lopez is reportedly back on board after taking a year off.
