Well, this certainly adds more legitimacy to the exciting reports that Nicki Minaj has joined the judges panel of American Idol!

While the rapper has yet to publicly confirm her role on the reality competition, sources close to production have revealed that it has not been an easy process working out the contract…but it's not her fault!

Instead, it's because of her recent endorsement deal with Pepsi, as Idol is sponsored by Coca Cola!

However, a similar situation arose with Jennifer Lopez and her Fiat commercial deal conflicted with Ford's sponsorship of the series, and thankfully that worked out all right!

So we'd say that the chances are PRETTY high that Her Minajesty will be okay!

But who else will be joining she and Mariah?!

Insiders claim that despite Nick Jonas and Pharrell rumors, the show WILL be re-formatting again to accommodate FOUR judges, with Keith Urban and Enrique Iglesias being the top choices!

Meanwhile, Randy Jackson will be bumped into role as mentor!

WOW!

Obviously, they are all still in the midst of trying to work out all of the details and legal mumbo jumbo, but we WILL say this!

American Idol DEFINITELY has a lot of exciting news to reveal when the time comes!

And we hope that time comes SOON!

    Why four judges? Mariah Carey as a centrepiece and two other less successful male judges would be good enough.

    This will go over like a lead balloon. Might as well rename it right now as Black Wannabe Idol. Grannies and little girls are not going to watch 3 minorities and a maybe white person for 3 hours every week. Guess the next winner will not be a white dude.

    Jlo is going to be piss, Nicki Minaj told Jlo when she was performing on Idol In May, she told Jlo I want your job, and Jlo replied, theirs no room for you. I guess Nicki Minaj wasn’t playing around, she got her wish, I think she will be in entertaining side of Idol, because she has a crazy personally, but I think she can get serious when she wants to, because it takes a serious person to accomplish what she has done a fews years she been in the music industry, she portray that crazy person as part of her act, but I can tell she’s a serious person. So Jlo, steps aside loser.

    Re: The Eric – LOL Best comment so far, made me laugh so much. Its so true!.

    Re: Tigerone$ – She got laid with a guy who gave her a moderately good position into underground rap. She only made her fame through the bed. She has no talent for rapping and it doesnt matter how serious she gets in the show, she doesnt SING and doesnt know HOW to sing. Why would she be telling others if they done good or not when she cant do it herself!?.

    I respect Niki Minaj, for her work as a female rapper. I don't think its a great idea, to have her on a singing competition. They need a music producer as a judge., I guess its just ratings, I think their losing their viewers. I know I wasn't going to watch, when jousha didn't make the finale. I'll watch for mariah, Maby her and who the new judges will be, put some diversity in thetop 24.
