Wednesday, we found out more information!  Here's information we took from Bobby Bones.com

Now Bobby Bones is making another huge career move. Bones is joining the American Idol team this season, working directly with the Top 24 contestants to share his expertise and advice on all areas of being an artist -- covering stage presence, dealing with media, posting on social media, remaining focused and being authentic and original.
Bobby shared on his radio show this morning his feelings on the new role:

"It's very exciting for me. I'm nervous that I'm not going to give good advice. I can't say a lot about what i'm doing but I'll be working with the Top 24 contestants."
