Nicki Minaj is rumoured to have signed a huge deal to be the next American Idol judge.
An insider from the hit US show told Us Weekly: “She is 100 per cent confirmed to judge ‘American Idol’.” That’s good enough for us!
Mariah Carey has already been confirmed as a new judge – she reportedly signed an $18million contract to join the show, following the departure of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. Talking about her new role, she said: “As a singer, songwriter and producer, it’s going to be fun and rewarding to help find new talent and give back to American Idol. I’m currently in the studio working on my new album and its first single, ‘Triumphant‘, which will be out early next month. I can’t wait to channel my creative energy as a part of this show which is a massive global phenomenon.”
