It looks like producers on American Idol are working hard to the fill the void left by Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. After officially signing Mariah Carey on as a judge last month, rumors are now flying that another Latino might also be joining the show's panel this upcoming season--the one and only Enrique Iglesias!!

According to People magazine, Iglesias and fellow artists Nicki Minaj and Nick Jonas are all being seriously considered for the open mentoring positions on Idol.

Wow! Though I definitely never expected that choice, I actually think Iglesias would make a great judge. With his decades of experience, he can surely give some valuable advice to the contestants. Besides, while I love Mariah,  Demi,  Xtina, and Gloria, it's about time that a Latino MALE was featured on one of these shows.

Plus, if Iglesias ever has any questions or doubts, he can always ask Lopez for help since the two are currently on a worldwide tour together! Hmm, come to think of it, that's quite a coincidence…maybe she recommended him for the job?
