She’s one of the pop world’s biggest names and mad as a box of squirrels so it’s not hard to see why we’re squirming with excitement over reports that Nicki Minaj is set to be a judge on the next season of American Idol.
Although yet to be confirmed by the Starships singer herself or the show, US celeb mag Us Weekly are claiming that, "[She is] 100% confirmed to judge." Brilliant news.
After a difficult few years ratings-wise, plus the departure of J-Lo and wrinkly rocker Steve Tyler from the judging panel, things weren’t looking super-promising for the show that was spawned from our very own Pop Idol (Gareth Gates anyone?). However, after last month’s confirmation that pop’s biggest diva Mariah Carey had been added to the judging panel, things started looking up. Add the rumours about Nicki Minaj to the mix and we’re setting our Sky Plus to record right now.
Apparently M-Caz hasn’t taken kindly to the reports, however, as she was led to believe she would be the only woman on the judge’s panel. Eeks! We feel a diva-off coming on. Either way, it looked like the pair got on swimmingly when they teamed up for Mariah's single Up Out My Face. Bring on the matchy-matchy wardrobes!
