The American Idol shakeup continues.

Nick Jonas and Pharrell Williams are in talks to be the newest judges on the Fox singing competition, Us Weekly reports. The former Disney star and N.E.R.D. rapper are the frontrunners to take over for Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson.

If both deals go through, the pair could bring a much younger demographic to Idol, which is heading into its 12th season.

Will Brad Paisley join American Idol as a judge?

Mariah Carey has already been confirmed to take over judging duties for Jennifer Lopez, and while Jackson's fate on the series in unconfirmed, there are reports that he will transition into a mentoring role.
