Musical man Harry took to Twitter to express his excitement about joining the judges of AI, for which he has served as in-house mentor during the show’s tenth season.
And that’s not the only role reversal to expect this season! It was also revealed that original judge Randy Jackson will appear on the show this season, serving as the in-house mentor for contestants.
