Nicki Minaj Joins ‘American Idol’

Hopefully, she’ll have this moment for life. Nicki Minaj will be joining American Idol as a judge, sources have confirmed to Us Weekly. (Fox has not confirmed these reports). One source said the rapper is “100% confirmed to judge American Idol.” Minaj’s latest album debuted at No. 1 in April and it had two top-10 singles. Minaj is also set to headline her own world tour starting Oct. 21. Mariah Carey has already confirmed that she will be appearing as a judge next season, while Nick Jonas and Pharrell Williams are reportedly being considered for the third judge’s seat. Randy Jackson is reportedly being moved into a “mentoring role.”
