‘Battle Behind The Scenes’ To Get Nicki Minaj American Idol Judge Role
Young Money superstar Nicki Minaj is the latest artist to have been rumoured to join the American Idol judging panel. But disagreements which may threaten her potential position are reportedly arising between the show’s producers and her former agent…
The New York Post recently claimed that there has been a “battle behind the scenes” over whether or not to hire the pop star, caused partly by her diva reputation.
A source revealed that there has been a heated debate regarding her addition to the American Idol line up, with some producers reportedly very keen on the idea, while others are more reluctant.
The Creative Artists Agency – who represent Ryan Seacrest, and many other Idol contestants are also reportedly very resistant to the idea, following being fired as Minaj’s representation late last year.
US Weekly, however, recently reported that Minaj was “100% on board,” despite fellow judge Mariah Carey reportedly unhappy at the idea that she would not be the only female idol judge.
