Nicki Minaj is a top contender to be the next judge on “American Idol,” and when the news got to Mariah Carey, let’s just say she wasn’t too thrilled with the idea.
It was reported that when Mariah Carey was told via phone that Nicki Minaj may in fact be a judge on “American Idol”, Mariah immediately hung up the phone. As to why Mariah Carey does not want Nicki Minaj to host is unknown. Some say it is an age issue where Nicki Minaj is half the age of Mariah Carey. Others say Mariah wanted to be the only female judge. Nothing has been said.
It is still unclear if Randy Jackson will return as well. It was also said that a fourth judge may be necessary is there were to be two women judging. The fourth obviously being another male to “even” things up a bit. Some of the top picks for a Male judge are Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and Enrique Iglesias .
