American Idol is dead set on four judges for the upcoming season because it worked so well the last time, presumably to compete with newer and hipper singing competitions like The Voice and The X Factor, so there is still one vacant spot.

How does Enrique's offer of $4 million compare to the other offers? Mariah accepted an $18 million deal in July. Reportedly, Nicki will receive around $8 million, as well as extra allowances for wardrobe, hair, and makeup, and Keith will receive about $4 million. Once upon a time, Brad Paisley was the country artist on American Idol's radar, but rumors suggest he walked away after being denied the same pay as Nicki.
