American Idol sure is milking this empty judge chair situation for all its worth! A new day, a new rumor surrounding who will be signed on in the last(?) remaining seat.   Let’s recap the rumored judges so far: Brad Paisley, Nick Jonas, Pharrell, and P.Diddy.  And I’m probably forgetting a few! If anything, it’s been a great way to bring publicity to each of the rumored musicians, as well as the show.

The latest news is that Nicki Minaj is just about to sign on the dotted line. Us Weekly claims to have two sources verifying that Nicki’s deal is a sure thing.  “I’m not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it. A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening.”

Mariah Carey and Nicki?  I’m just not sure if there’s enough room for both egos at that table?  Do you think she’s been ‘in the game’ long enough to be of value to the show?
