After all, Nick got our hopes up when he said he was in the running... we thought it would be no competition to get one of the JoBros on the panel.
How wrong we were!
Instead, we get the feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj (is that for real, by the way?!), old dawg Randy Jackson and hottie Keith Urban (we're not complaining about Keith, really).
Still, it sounds like the timing wasn't right for Nick, as he shared with MTV what went down in the decision-making.
According to Nick, "I think it's one of those things where it wasn't right on both sides."
He does, however, think "the panel they have is pretty solid," adding, "it's going to be highly entertaining."
We would have liked Nick in the mix, but glad that he can focus on the Jonas Brothers' new album and tour.
