Nicki Minaj Confirmed as American Idol Judge!

American Idol Season 12 will officially feature some serious girl power.

Following weeks of rumors and speculation, multiple sources now confirm that Nicki Minaj is in as a new judge on the country’s must-watched television show.

While Fox is yet to release a statement on the hiring, an insider tells Us Weekly that Minaj is 100% signed, while another says this hip hop star is “definitely doing it.”

According to a new report, the longtime judge will NOT be returning for Season 12, as Idol will go with a four-person table that also includes Keith Urban and Enrique Iglesias.

Minaj, meanwhile, embarks on a world tour this October. Her latest album led to a pair of top 10 singles (“Starships” and “Pound the Alarm”) and the artist is a supporter of free universal health care.
