Rumors started running wild last week that rapper Nicki Minaj will be sitting in one of the judges chair on the new season of American Idol.
Additional rumors also claimed that Pepsi and Coke are feuding over the prospectives that the Pink Friday rapper, who is sponsored by Pepsi, will be judging the show. Coke is one of the main sponsors of American Idol. But this feud could be either already worked out or will play out in the media.
According to Us Weekly, Nicki Minaj is 100% confirmed to be a judge on American Idol.
Sources told the magazine that Minaj is “100% confirmed to judge American Idol.” Another inside source says, “I’m not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it.”
Reps for Nicki Minaj and FOX have not confirmed these reports.
Other names in the rumor mill for the judges panel on Idol includes Enrique Iglesias, Nick Jonas, Pharrell Williams, and Keith Urban.
