Justin And Selena 'Wanted For American Idol'
Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Pink and P Diddy are reported to be 'dream team'...
A show insider apparently claimed that despite Nicki Minaj's impact, this year is being seen as a misfire by show bosses.
The source said: "It's been a lacklustre season for Idol and everyone involved with the show is well aware of it so that's why producers are frantically working on lining up big name stars for season 13.
"There's more drama going on behind the scenes of the show than on the stage, and that's why there's a major overhaul in the works.
"A telling sign was that the highlight of the season was Mariah and Nicki's explosive feud that was leaked on the web - and that was before the season even aired.
"Producers have been trying to recreate that buzz ever since and it hasn't worked - the public isn't buying it. The judges don't have real chemistry, and there's no real standout contestant.
"That's why they want to go big next season, and you can't get any bigger than Justin Bieber. The executives are calling it their dream team because who wouldn't tune in to see Justin and Selena, Pink and Diddy?"
And execs are reported to be hopeful of landing Pink and Diddy, even though the former reportedly turned the job down before and the latter asked for too much money.
We told you earlier this week how two of the show's biggest stars could be returning for the finale this year.
