Enrique Iglesias turned down judging gigs on two TV talent shows

ENRIQUE IGLESIAS turned down judging roles on both AMERICAN IDOL and THE VOICE.

The Hero hitmaker has been keeping busy promoting his albums and embarking on various world tours, including one with American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez in 2012.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, Iglesias was asked whether he would ever want to follow in the footsteps of Lopez and become a mentor on a TV talent show.

He revealed, "It's crazy you asked that because I was asked to be a judge on American Idol last year, I was on tour at the time and there was a lot of conflicts with my schedule. I couldn't do it.

"And the first season of The Voice I was also asked to be on, but it was also conflicting with my schedule so maybe I made dumb choices."

He added, "I would love to (in the future) if it didn't conflict with my schedule."

Iglesias served as a guest mentor for judge Nicole Scherzinger on the first season of The X Factor USA. The series has since been cancelled after just three seasons.
