Diddy & Pharrell To Sit Alongside Mariah On Idol?!

Diddy Pharrell Idol Judges

The clock is winding down for the producers of American Idol, with just ONE judge’s seat filled for the show’s upcoming twelfth season!

So far, Mariah Carey has been the ONLY judge confirmed, with Randy Jackson possibly moving to a mentoring role, following Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler’s exits.

Now, we’re hearing that Diddy is being considered for a seat!

Reportedly, the Bad Boy has already been approached by the producers of Idol, though neither have yet to comment or confirm!

We're sure Mariah and Diddy would bring the dramz with some "creative differences!" Hm!

As for the other names being thrown into the mix? There’s been talks of Pharrell being involved in negotiations, too!

In fact, it's even been reported that Pharrell has revealed to his friends that he'd be at the Idol auditions later this month!!

Nick Jonas recently confirmed that he’s also being considered for the hit show and earlier, we reported that Alanis Morissette could possibly be in the running for a judging position, as well!

With all of their experience in the recording industry, could Diddy or Pharrell be the L.A. Reid for AI???


Whoever they decide to choose, it sounds like Idol is shaping up be a COMPLETELY different show than ever before!

    This could work….. IF the majority of the viewers weren't 12 year old girls.

    This line up would be the death kneel of AI. It would best be suited for BET.

    so theyre going for some black hip hop RnB audience then? Nice way to totally alienate your core audience who are clearly mostly white and conservative.

    That line up would fail

    Wow like much of everything else in America this to is going towards the HIPHOP now. It needs to move from Fox and get on BET. Go to any rappers concert and what is the crowd full of white ppl lol.At least they will have more interesting contestants. I'm getting very bored, well I've been bored with the show which explains why I havent watched it in 6 yrs with the same singing styles every season. Instead of hair band songs from the 80's we'll get Gangsta rap talking about popping caps off in yo a&* till you dead.

    You saw Danity Kane, and Puffy's other talent discovery shows, he has proven that he can't pick talent. And as for Pharrell, enough already, he sucks!!!

    racist much? just bc they're black it does´t mean they have to be the L A Reid of the show..

    BORING!! They need new faces not have been faces..if i were to cast i would choose Rihanna or Cheryl Cole, someone older and still present on the music scene like sir Paul Mcartney or Mick Jagger, Selena Gomez to bring young audiences and Usher could be a well add up as a fourth judge

    You people are stupid. Pharrell is a real musician, talented producer and also fronts a rock band. He is multi-faceted and would bring a creative edge to the table. He's worked with Brittany and Justin Timberlake, so I think he has an ability to understand talent when he sees it. Stop saying this round-up belongs on BET. An all Black panel who works with a diversity of talent is just as adept as an all White panel. I can't believe this is 2012.

    just because the judges could be black, doesn't mean it needs to be on BET idiots.

    Pharrell has worked with lots of people including a very white JT. And Diddy had Danity Kane which was very popular…. People only ever see color in this country, yet white people are quick to say that racism is not an issue ad we have moved on as a country, right?

    When I first read this, my reaction was questioning Diddy's judgement since he doesn't have any, not even seeing the color. But that's just me.

    Racism alive and well! Stop acting like it's not

    Do you really think AI is going to have all black judges on their panel - I doubt it. Whether or not they would be good judges is besides the point because neither Miriah, P.Diddy or Pharrell are going to bring in the teenagers, so why would they want them as judges.

    I don´t think Mariah Carey has what it takes to succeed as a judge like Jlo because she´s no Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera therefore The Xfactor and the voice are going to have more audiences than AI besides I think this show needs to be over none of the contestants become successful singers except for Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood
