For some reason or another, celebrities seem to be lining up to fill the empty seats at the judges table on FOX’s ‘American Idol”
TMZ has most recently reported that we can add Kanye West to the lit of hopefuls, as he is currently in negotiations to be one of the new judges on the show.
Producers of the show reportedly reached out to the rapper about filling one of the open judging spots, and Kanye expressed interest. However, TMZ has added that Yeezy isn’t completely sold on the idea yet, “because he’s not sure if A.I. is in his wheelhouse,” and he would require a salary of at least $18 million a year – the same amount received by the show’s latest confirmed judge, Mariah Carey.
Fellow rapper Nicki Minaj is also reportedly in negotiations it become a judge on the show.
I hate to admit it, but this star-studded lineup of (for the most part) relevant celebrities could be the boost the failing reality series needs.
