Report: Nicki Minaj Will Definitely Do 'American Idol'


Nicki Minaj


The 'Starships' raptress hasn't signed the deal yet but she is '100 percent confirmed' to judge the FOX reality series with Mariah Carey, sources say.

Nicki Minaj is reportedly only inches away from signing up for "American Idol". Words on the street are, she will highly likely join Mariah Carey on the judging panel for the upcoming twelfth installment of the veteran singing competition.

"I'm not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it. A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening," an insider tells Us Weekly. Another source says a similar thing, "100% confirmed to judge American Idol."

FOX has not released any comment on Minaj's alleged involvement.

Previously, The Hollywood Reporter said the producers might find some troubles in bringing her to the show since the Young Money femcee is the new face of Pepsi, which is a longtime rival of "Idol" sponsor Coke. The site also claimed that the judge line-up will include a country star and a Latin artist, with Keith Urban and Enrique Iglesias as the frontrunners.

The new season of "American Idol" will begin airing on FOX in early 2013 with Ryan Seacrest returning as the host. Nick Jonas confirmed he was in the running of becoming one of the new judges, but it hasn't been made official just yet.
