Fresh off the heels of me reporting that (alleged) hip-hop star Nicki Minaj is joining the judges table on American Idol, now comes word that Latin pop sensation Enrique Iglesias may also be joining the table as well. So my questions are this: is Randy ‘Dawg’ Jackson being shown the door? Are they expanding to a four-person judging table again?
There are reports that Randy Jackson may be
demoted moved into a mentoring role, but where does that leave Jimmy Iovine? Everyone loves him in that position and he has proven to be great in it. How could Randy possibly top that snarkiness?!
Further complicating matters on casting is that there are additional reports that Kanye West is being considered for a role too. Also, Mariah Carey is reportedly non too pleased that Nicki Minaj is being considered for the table. It seems that she was lead to believe that she would be the lone woman on the panel for the upcoming season. I have no idea how this is all going to play out, but if Nicki and Mariah get into a spat on air, I am totally placing all my Hello Kitty money on none other than Mimi!
