Us Weekly is reporting that Nicki Minaj will join the judges’ panel for the newest season of ‘American Idol.’ The female rapper may be joining Mariah Carey and other possible male judges but still in negotiations including Enrique Iglesias, Pharrell Williams, Keith Urban and Nick Jonas. The revamped show is rumored to feature a four-member panel of judges, with longtime judge Randy Jackson possibly moving to a “mentor” role.

Nicki Minaj — and her multiple personas — will be joining Mariah Carey at the judges’ table on American Idol, two sources confirm to Us Weekly exclusively.
“I’m not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it,” one insider reveals. “A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening.”
A second source says the “Super Bass” rapper, 29, is “100% confirmed to judge American Idol.” Reps for FOX and Minaj had no comment when contacted by Us.
