Carly Rae Jepsen debuted her new song, ‘Take A Picture’ on the American Idol finale on Wednesday night (May 15) – a tune written with the help of fans via Coca-Cola’s ‘Perfect Harmony’ program. Carly has a special connection with the Idol franchise – she came in third on the Canadian version of the show in 2007.
And while the singer says she’d make a “terrible judge” because she’d be “too motherly,” she does have someone in mind she thinks would be perfect for the panel – friend and mentor Justin Bieber.
“Justin would be awesome,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “He’s got lots of great opinions when it comes to the music world and he’s very experienced especially for being so young.”
No word yet on the future of the Idol judging panel, with Randy Jackson opting not to return for the next season and Nikki Minaj also exiting. But Mariah Carey is reportedly staying, and Keith Urban has said he would love to come back next year.
