Nicki Minaj is the latest name being thrown into the American Idol judging mix.
According to a report from Us Weekly, Nicki Minaj will join Mariah Carey as judge next season.
“I’m not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it,” says one source.
While another anonymous insider adds that the Young Money member is “100% confirmed to judge American Idol.”
Nicki Minaj recently regretfully cancelled her performances at UK’s V Festival (Highlands Park, August 18th and 19th) due to strained vocal chords. Despite doctor’s orders, she performed on a bruised vocal chord in NY on August 14. As a result, the chord has gotten worse. After her most recent x-ray the doctor advises she rest her voice for a few more days.
