Clarkson_jonas Sources have told the LA Times that Joe Jonas (of the teen heartthrob group the Jonas Brothers) and season 1 “American Idol” winner Kelly Clarkson are nearing a deal to guest-judge.

Clarkson has had a strained relationship with Idol in the past, but did appear this past season to perform her new single “My Life Would Suck Without You.” The Jonas Brothers took to the Idol stage for the season 7 finale. Both stars are currently on tour.

The hits just keep on coming. We’ve got Posh Spice, Mary J. Blige, Shania Twain, still-unscheduled Katy Perry and now Joe Jonas and Kelly Clarkson. This is starting to sound like benefit album lineup. Maybe after Idol they can all hit up “30 Rock” for a Kidney Now II.
