Is the summer-long drama surrounding the American Idol judges finally coming to an end? Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban are reportedly joining Mariah Carey on the judging panel. Randy Jackson is moving into a mentoring role

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.

Still, the end might be near, because Enrique Iglesias is currently sitting on an offer from American Idol for about $4 million. Coincidentally, Enrique just wrapped up a tour with former Idol judge Jennifer Lopez.

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.
 
 
Enrique has declined offers from The Voice and The X Factor in the past. If Enrique also says no to American IdolAdam Lambert is assumed to be next in line.
 
The season 12 auditions are set to begin in less than two weeks.
