Rocker and New Jersey’s own Bon Jovi recently admitted that he turned down a chance to be a judge on both “American Idol” and “The X Factor”. Bon Jovi says he had to turn down both offers because of his extremely busy schedule. He also said    “I had 23 years to write my first record. I was able to develop a career in bars, I would never have won any of those contests. You see them there and they can hit the high note and then a year later they’re a trivia question. It’s a big ask of these kids.”

Bon Jovi is ready to kick off The Because We Can Tour celebrating 30 years of the band. The tour kicks off February 9th in Connecticut.

Do you think Bon Jovi would of been a good fit as a judge on American Idol or X Factor?
