Nicki Minaj and her many personalities will reportedly join Mariah Carey at the judging table on American Idol as stated by US Weekly. Two sources have confirmed that Nicki is 100% in.
"I'm not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it," one insider reveals. "A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening."
A second source says the "Super Bass" rapper, 29, is "100% confirmed to judge American Idol." Rumors of Minaj joining Idol have been running ramped for awhile now, and today or sometime this week seems to be the we might get a confirmed yes from either Fox or Minaj herself.
This is a great career move if Nicki does in fact join Idol. Two number albums, world tour, Adidas deal, and Pepsi deal Minaj can’t be stopped. Why would she pass up the chance to take her career to new highest, and to also sit along side legend Mariah Carey? It’s a win win if you ask me.
Mariah Carey, who is the diva of all divas, likes to do any and everything on a bigger scale then most. So it’s no surprise that she’s pulling out all the stops for upcoming album.
According to Billboard, Carey’s album is set to be release in March just in time for the new season of American Idol, in which she will be a judge. Mariah Carey’s new single “Triumphant (Get Em)”, which features Meek Mill and Rick Ross will impact urban radio on August 13th, and it is already available on iTunes.
Carey’s manager, Randy Jackson, also confirmed “Triumphant (Get Em)” is set to premiere in the coming weeks, and the video was directed by her husband Nick Cannon. Also Carey has a big performance planned for television that is set to air soon.
