Nicki Minaj 'Set To Join American Idol Panel'
Star reportedly signing to becoming a judge on US talent show...
Us Weekly claims that the singer and rapper - who cancelled her scheduled appearance at the V Festival last weekend due to illness - is a dead cert to join Mariah Carey on the show.
The mag has quoted two sources as confirming that Minaj is preparing to join the show - with one claiming she is "100 per cent" on board and the other saying: "I'm not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it.
The second source continued: "A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening."
Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers and Pharrell Williams of N.E.R.D are also both claimed to be in negotiation to join the show - and P Diddy was also recently reported to be a contender.
Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and Jennifer Lopez both quit their roles on the judging panel earlier this summer.
