After much speculation as to who would fill the third judges” seat on the new season of “American Idol,” Lukasz Gottwald has signed on for the job.
According to E! News, the music producer, who is better known as Dr. Luke officially inked the deal after Will.i.am turned the gig down.
With hits such as “California Gurls” and “Since U Been Gone” under his belt, the 39-year-old is expected to be a solid addition to the panel.
Gottwald will be joined at the table by Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez when the new season of “Idol” begins later this year.
