7 people who should replace Bobby Bones on American Idol
Bobby Bones recently announced that he would be leaving American Idol. The radio host spend the last 4 years as the in-house mentor for the reality competition show. In an Instagram story, Bones announced that whatever network he is working with would not allow him to do another show. With Bones out, one has to wonder who might take the spot as In-house mentor for the show.
In years past, that spot has been occupied by music producer Jimmy Iovine, former Idol judge Randy Jackson, and record executive Scott Borchetta. The seat has also been filled by many superstars over the years as guest mentors. Since season 10, Idol has had a permanent in-house mentor.
So who should be given the job? Here is 7 people we think would make great in house mentors for Idol.
The superstar singer and songwriter has filled a similar position on NBC’s The Voice on multiple occasions. Tedder did such an amazing job with contestants that he was actually being considered to replace Adam Levine on The Voice before Levine decided to stay. After Levine decided to stay on The Voice, NBC gave Tedder the show Songland, which lasted 2 seasons.
Tedder is best known as the lead singer of the pop band OneRepublic. One thing that people don’t always realize is that Tedder also wrote hit songs like “Halo” for Beyonce, “Rumor has it” for Adele, “Bleeding Love” for Leonna Lewis, and “I Know Places” for Taylor Swift.
Tedder is an incredible performer as well. He would be able to give contestants real life advice on how to put together a compelling performance and arraignments for each contestant. I think if Idol wants to stand out from The Voice, they should bring Tedder onto the show as the in-house mentor.
