Ever since Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez called it quits on the show back at the beginning of July, it's been nonstop rumors about who would be taking their place. Once the show signed Mariah Carey on as a judge, I was hoping that would slow things down, but if anything it's sped it up to where multiple times a day there's a rumor about this person signing on, this person turning down the show down, or this person would never do it in a million years.
Ugh. I wish they would just flippin' get to it already!
I honestly think the show would have had better luck just putting it out there that they were looking for a judge and letting the stars show an interest rather than actively hunting up a star.
Well this is my absolutely last "rumored to be" post because honestly I'm just plain sick and tired of hearing about it and feel like my brain may explode if I hear one more thing about 'American Idol' rumors.
The Hollywood Reporter is now reporting that Keith Urban (who did confirm that he was asked to be on the show) and Nicki Minaj are the new American Idol judges, they are just waiting to finish up the paperwork. Nicki will reportedly be earning $8 million while Keith would be making $3 to $4 million.
Keith Urban joining the show would definitely be cool, just if it's true, I wish they would get around to finally announcing it.
UPDATE: There is a rumor that Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj have accepted offers from American Idol, but I'll wait to believe that until I hear it from the show itself.
