Groban Too Nice for Idol

Josh Groban believes that if you can't say something nice, you shouldn't say anything at all -- and that's why you'll never see him as a reality show judge.

Josh, whose sense of humor and singing skills would seem to make him a perfect fit for that gig, told a British press conference that he couldn't do it. He said, "I like nurturing too much, I think I'd have a hard time with the meanness. The toughest part of it is people like watching the train wrecks for the entertainment value, at least for me."

He did, however, step into the role of mentor for a bit, saying he'd advise aspiring singers to "really find out what makes you and your voice unique, and don't lose what makes you special...[and] try to be as nice to people as possible."
