The rating for American Idol have been slumping and last year it was the worst it has ever been but now the bosses have drafted in Jennifer Lopez to try to boost them back up.
Jennifer will replace Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj who announced a couple of weeks back that they no longer wanted to do the show.
This si what a source had to say:
“J.LO’s manager, Benny Medina, was in talks with FOX even before Mariah and Nicki announced their departures last week. Benny told FOX that she does indeed want to return. They’re talking. Negotiations are in their infant stages, but they’re underway to get her back to the judges’ table.”
JLO boost the rating on any show she’s on why do you think they had her on Britain’s Got Talent last week??
This morning we heard that Mariah Carey has left American Idol and now Nicki Minaj as just quit the show.
The singer/ rapper broke the news on her Twitter page as she said to her fans:
Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world! Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!
— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) May 30, 2013
And now FOX has released the following statement saying:
“Nicki Minaj is a superstar who brought a level of honesty and passion to American Idol and who had a tremendous positive impact on so many contestants this season. Given her extremely busy career, we understand and respect her decision and wish her the best.”
They are going to have to get two really famous people on the panel as the ratings are already really low so we wonder who the bosses have in mind.
It looks like Nicki Minaj’s dance moves are just too ‘risque’ for her to perform on American Idol.
The singer/ rapper has talked about her new single High School and said that she was meant to perform the single on American Idol but she is just a littl eover the top for that time of day and with the show being a family show.
This is what she had to say:
“I was supposed to premiere my ‘High School’ video on Idol but they said it was too risque. I had already committed to the Billboard Awards to perform my single ['High School'], and so I wasn’t allowed to perform it on Idol and perform it on Billboard [both].”

Nicki Minaj has never been shy about talking about her hard childhood and how hard it has been but now she has spoke out in Teen Vogue magazine!
The singer/ rapper has talked about the hard times during her childhood, especially when her parents argued, and also how she deals with al the haters.
The Pound The Alarm singer said:
“Every time my parents fought, my mother would have us move and I would have to go to a new school, which meant I’d have to face the task of making new friends. I dreaded it. I had butterflies in my stomach each time: Are people going to like or hate me? … Sometimes there’d be a fight, sometimes not. I let people know I wasn’t going to be pushed around. People treat this business like it’s high school. It can absolutely feel like one big popularity contest, and you know what? I can’t be bothered. I can’t allow myself to play ridiculous games with grown adults in the industry. I can’t be nice to someone just because they’re hot right now. I can’t do it.”
“I used to read the bad things people said about me. Then I asked myself, ‘Why am I reading that when I have millions of people saying great things?’ You cannot give negativity power. I tell teens, if you’re having a problem, there’s nothing wrong with deleting your social media. If people keep taunting you and you keep reading it, it’s poison.”
Nicki no longer talk’s to her dad due to what he did to her and her mother growing up but it show how much her life has changed since she found fame.
It look’s like American Idol staff have decided to make big changes to the judging panel!
Sources have siad that Nicki Minaj,Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson are all off the show!
We already knew that Randy was leaving as he announced that the other day but we had no clue about the others.
A Fox insider has said:
“All four are gone. They feel they’ve lost their core audience and they want it back.”
