Jon Bon Jovi not keen to judge TV talent shows

Washington: Jon Bon Jovi has refused to a number of lucrative offers to judge a TV talent show, insisting that he already has a job.

According to the Sun newspaper, the 50-year-old musician, who was rumoured to replace Steven Tyler on the American Idol panel, has turned down the offer, as he is too busy with his concerts, Contactmusic reported.

He has also admitted that he feels sorry for the wannabe stars who find overnight success on TV.

“It`s hard for the talent because they`re thrust into a huge spotlight, then they win these things and they`re expected to have a record that`s on a par with the greats,” he added.
