Oh brother, as if the ever growing pool of names for possible judges on American Idol wasn’t enough, there is now drama behind the scenes! Rumor has it that Mariah Carey
started to show diva-like behavior is not the least bit happy that Nicki Minaj is being considered for a spot on the panel. Let the diva drama begin!
American Idol may have been hoping to add Nicki Minaj to the panel, but it is not going to happen if Mariah Carey has anything to say about it. According to TMZ, when Mariah Carey got a call from Idol informing her that Nicki Minaj was a top contender for the final judging spot, Mariah actually hung up the phone on them! Talk about diva behavior! That makes us wonder what will see out of her on the panel, yikes!
The reason Mariah does not want Nicki on the panel? Well, for starters, rumor has it that Mariah Carey was told that she would be the only female on the panel. The other reason? Minaj is much younger than her. No, sadly we are not kidding.
However, nothing is set in stone – yet. The site also reports that if Idol goes with both Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj (if they can smooth Mariah over to the idea), they will be adding a fourth panel member to even the genders out. Rumors are that Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and Enrique Iglesias are all top contenders.
There is still no word yet either on whether or not Randy Jackson will be back as a judge, or simply a mentor. Let the confusion and drama begin!
