Is Nicki Minaj Going To Join The American Idol Judges?

 

02 April 2012

Nicki Minaj announced her plans to join the American Idol judging panel on TV on Thursday night (29 March) and if the episode is anything to go by Jennifer Lopez is not happy!

Nicki performed her new hit Starships on the TV talent show and then revealed that she wanted to be a guest judge next week.

She told Ryan Seacrest, "I was hoping maybe I could come back and be a guest judge."
Then looking straight at J.Lo, she added, "Can you scoot over a little bit?"

J-Lo seemed less than impressed with the idea but she joked it off, stating, "I don't know if there's enough room for both of us."

Backstage minutes later, Minaj told The Hollywood Reporter, "She didn't seem to be having it but she gonna have it (sic). No, actually, I love J.Lo. I love what she's done for pop culture I have nothing but respect for her and we were just joking around. I'm sure I'll have lots of fun with them when I'm guest judging."

On Friday morning (30Mar12) when Lopez called in to Seacrest's Los Angeles radio breakfast show, she appeared to be unclear as to whether or not Minaj would be sitting alongside her: "I don't know! She said she wanted to, but we were like, 'OK, come on!' and then she was like, 'Scoot over!' I said, 'I don't know about that! I don't know if we could share the same chair!'"

Do you think Nicki would make a good judge?
