Nicki Minaj allegedly is joining Mariah Carey at the judges' table on American Idol, two sources confirm to Us Weekly exclusively.
This means the hair and makeup trailer will be busy, busy, busy with divas Mariah Carey and Minaj both needing loads of prep time.
"I'm not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it," one insider reveals. "A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening."
Usmagazine also reported in late July, Nick Jonas is also in the running to fill one of the vacant seats at the judges' table. Randy Jackson is being moved into a "mentoring role," according to a source. Jonas later confirmed the news via Twitter. "I am being considered to be a judge on American Idol," he wrote. "And it would be a dream come true if it happens." Pharrell Williams is also being considered, according to insiders.
