Will Nikki Sixx be the Next 'American Idol' Judge?

June 28, 2017
Nikki Sixx arrives to the 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards in Los Angeles, California.


On Monday, Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx announced that he’s “unofficially retired” in order to focus on his family.



But now, TMZ reports that may not be the full story. In fact, he could be getting much busier as the next American Idol host. TMZ claims that their sources say ABC and AI producers have their eye on Nikki Sixx as a third judge alongside Katy Perry and Lionel Ritchie.

Back in May, TMZ reported that previous judge Steven Tyler was all for another shot at being judge again with his fellow judges, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson, but that doesn’t seem likely. 

Looks like only time will tell if Nikki Sixx is onboard, but if he is, he’d definitely bring something fierce to the show!
