Nicki Minaj will reportedly be joining the judges panel on American Idol. According to two unnamed sources in US Weekly, the rapper is "100% confirmed to judge," though "the deal is [not] completely done yet. She is definitely doing it... A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening." Neither Minaj nor FOX have made any statements about her inclusion. If she is on the show, the rapper will join a panel with Mariah Carey and supposedly either Nick Jonas or Pharrell, one of whom will replace Randy Jackson, who has been moved into a mentoring role. Season 12 of American Idol will air this winter.
