And maybe Kim Kardashian will host!!! What what!!

Ok, so NO, Kim is NOT replacing Ryan Seacrest on American Idol, but Kanye West HAS been in talks with the show's execs about joining the high-caliber host of super-celeb judges!

Apparently, 'Ye is considering the offer, but would most likely require MORE than Mariah Carey's paltry paycheck of $18 million… ’cause that like, barely covers the cost of his shuttered sunglasses, DUH!

But imagine it: Kanye, Nicki Minaj, Mariah and the other guy Randy Jackson/a mystery judge (come on Jay-Z you KNOW you wanna join your boy!) combining forces on American Idol! It may just be enough to - dare we say - rival Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on X Factor!

Unfortunately, we HIGHLY doubt Kanye would ever accept a gig on network TV, he's just too artistic for that mainstream sh*t! Ha!! Now, if HBO held a singing competition, 'Ye would be all UP in its musical nooks and crannies!

    IF he joins AI; I will NEVER watch it!

    Ha. I would watch that. Egomaniacs make great tv. Him, Nicki AND Mariah. That's all sorts of crazy. I will definately start watching again. I haven't watched in YEARS. If it's even true of course.

    Disgusting. I do get why they are throwing millions to tacky, talentless rappers. Nicki doesn't even sing, she blabs. Idol should just call it quits.

    This knuckle-dragger is a bitchy egomaniac. Idol doesn't need three black judges; if they're determined to do this, then they need to move the show to BET and it can experience a very rapid death there. Mariah Carey is one thing. Nicky Minaj and Kanye West are idiots. The majority of the Idol audience is NOT black. Going down that road will guarantee an end to the show.

    If they put kanye on the show I will never watch again. He is the biggest loser and a big baby!

    Not this fur wearing, egomaniac, douche bag. No to Nikki too, we already have one classless lady joining AI.



  9. 9

    OH MY GOD, WHAT THE F*CK DID I JUST SAY IN THE NICKI MINAJ POST ABOUT HIM? Looks like I had the right idea…. *rolls eyes*

    I didn't watch it cuz J-lo. Now that J-lo is gone I was excited to see Mariah judging. Now that Minaj is going to judge, I thought I wasn't going to watch it after all. If Kanye is a new judge too, well…that just seals the deal that I won't be watching Idol at all while they're judges. Sorry Mimi, I wanted to watch you but not at the expense of having to watch Minaj & Kanye too.

    Thats it…I'm officially convinced that the world really is ending in December. I haven't watched the show since Kelly Clarkson won, and when they said Mariah was joining I was semi interested again (I can't stand the no talent jlo and her fake personality) but then they mentioned Nicki was in talks, and I lost all interest. Why should a rapper have ANY say in a singing competition?! And don't even get me started on Kanye…no one would ever get the mic from him…he's an egomaniac asshole that doesn't deserve to be famous, let alone judge actual talent

    Re: raleigh – I agree John. who wants to watch a bunch or rappers who know only what they can"sample". Lenny Kravitz is a better choice as he appeals to both black and white and will not alienate the majority white audience. Move it to BET whre it will make sense.



  14. 14

    SINCE WHEN RAPPERS ARE ALLOWED TO JUDGE LIVE SINGING ??? NICKI & KANYE HAVE NOTHING TO DO THERE…. KANYE WILL NEVER GET MORE MONEY THAN MARIAH… MARIAH IS KNOWN FOR HER VOICE, SHE IS A GLOBAL SUPERSTAR, UNLIKE THE GETTO IDOL KANYE



  15. 15

    what the fuck r they thinking???



  16. 16

    If he gets the seat, Mariah will quit



  17. 17

    Kayne can join AI only if he promises not to inflict Kardashain on the viewers.



  18. 18

    Sooo… they've just given up, haven't they?

    Is Obama choosing the judges because I don't see many white people
    on the judges panel

    this guy thinks he is worth more than Mariah Carey? guy is tripping.

    What the hell you mean rival Britney Spears and Demi Lovato? Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey are bigger names than Britney and Demi. Britney's last album flopped selling only 700K and Demi is from Disney and is only now getting a real pop hit with Give Your Heart a Break. Nicki Minaj has become a (gimmicky) force in the industry. Super Bass, Starships, Pound the Alarm, and I just know in my heart that Marilyn Monroe, Va Va Voom and Whip It will slay all radio airplay. If they can get Kanye then you know Kim's fat ass will be there every Wednesday and Thursday to be seen.

    Stick a fork in it, it's done, getting ridiculous.



  24. 24

    time to pull the plug on this show. I've watched bits and pieces from every season, but no way in hell will I watch with Kanye and Minaj on the panel. Guess it's time to check out the X Factor. Simon Cowell, you got out at the right time.

    Too many kneegrows in one kitchen. Throw them out of the back door.

    as for this story likely bullshit kayne needs to get RID OF KIM K SHES BAD FOR HIS IMAGE.. he has good friends he has some talent and hes hanging around a talentless fat ass hoe hard to beleive he couldnt see the light sooner than this…



  28. 28

    I haven't even seen American Idol since Simon left. They should just stop the show. The X Factor is taking over, sorry not sorry.

  29. This is utter bs says – reply to this

    I laughed at the fact that you even believe Kanye/Nicki/Mariah will ever compare to the X-Factor panel. At least the X-Factor Judges have talent (Demi) Experience in the industry (L.A and Simon) and the one airhead that every great competition has (Brittney). While over at A.I, you have two smack-talking wannabes and a washed-up babymama. C'mon, now which show do you REALLY think will have more viewers.
