There were rumors floating that Brad Paisley was in talks to be a judge on the next season of American Idol, but we now hear that Idol will be doubly diva-licious this season - now that Nicki Minaj has joined the judges' panel.
According to Us Weekly, the Queen of Queens has officially agreed to take a seat alongside Mariah Carey for the coming year. Two separate inside sources confirmed the deal to the mag, with one saying it's "100 percent confirmed," and a second hedging just a little by saying, "I'm not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it. A few more slight things to sign off on, but it is happening."
Rumors are still swirling that Nick Jonas will round out the panel for the new season, with Randy Jackson moving into a mentoring role.
