Los Angeles: Singer Jon Bon Jovi won`t judge the next season of singing reality show ‘American Idol’ as he is working on his next album, a source said.

Singer Jennifer Lopez had earlier expressed her desire to see him or Mick Jagger in her place as a judge.

"Jon wouldn`t commit to anything unless he can give 100 percent. With planning for the next album already underway, he`s focused on the band," a website has quoted a source as saying.

"With all systems go for a new album and a mega-tour on the horizon, Jon wouldn`t be able to give those aspiring singers the guidance they deserve," the source added.
