Nicki Minaj Might Join Mariah Carey as New American Idol Judge

Rapper and singer Nicki Minaj could be joining American Idol as the show’s newest judge.

A couple of sources close to the emcee, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Monday the star has been in talks and working out a deal for the hit Fox competition show.

MTV reports one of the sources said Minaj is “100 percent confirmed,” while the other one added, “A few more slight things to sign off on, but it is happening.”

The Fox network has not given a comment yet, neither has Minaj’s rep.

If the rumors are true, the 29-year-old will be joining Mariah Carey, who recently signed on as the newest judge for the show’s upcoming 12th season, after former judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez exited from the show.
