It looks like Mariah Carey isn’t going to be the diva on the set American Idol this year. Nicki Minaj has signed on to take the place of Steven Tyler, leaving Randy Jackson as the shows sole male judge.
Our source confirms Minaj and American Idol producers have come to terms and all that remains to make it official is the pop stars signature on her contract which is expected to take place later today.
I think this is a good move because I know that she’s not going to have any trouble speaking her mind and quite possibly will be a female Simon Cowell clone. I also think she may even be able to hold Mariah Carey in check and keep her from pulling the diva card too often.
