American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe was recently asked if he would have Justin Bieber on the panel as a judge on the show and this is what he replied:
“Yes, I’m just trying to figure out what he’d mentor on… it certainly would [help ratings].”
But the question on a lot of people lips is if Nicki Minaj will be back for another year and he had the answer to that too as he dished:
“By me, [Nicki Minaj] certainly will be [welcomed back next year as a judge].”
So now we knwo that all the rumors that Nicki was kicked off the show where false!
L.A. Reid and Britney Spears have both left the the X Factor US but now it looks like they are going to be replaced by Ne-Yo!
On Sunday at the Grammy awards the singer confirmed that he’d been in talks right now to join the show, but that “nothing is set in stone” just yet!
The talks started back in January about Ne-Yo joining the show so we wonder if he will or not?
This would not be the first time that Ne-Yo has been on the X Factor as he guest mentor alongside Nicole Scherzinger on the UK verion of the show at judges houses.
It’s looking like Randy Jackson is going to be the only original judge on American Idol!
Nicki Minaj could also be a judge and not forgetting Mariah Carey and Keith Urban.
We have also heard that Enrique Iglesias, will sit next to Randy on the pannel.
The announcement could be made any day now we will just have to Waite and see!
Randy Jackson has announced that he’s leaving American Idol.
Randy has been on the show for 11 years now but hes finally thinks its time to leave the show.
His departure follows Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler as they have lafe the show over the last past few weeks.
We wonder who will take his space on the panel.
As its been talked about in the press about Dannii Minogue secret romance with Simon Cowell but now shes talked out about why she did not return to the X Factor UK.
In the UK’s September issue of Glamour, Dannii opened up about why she chose NOT to return to her judging role on the The X Factor UK!
Mz. Minogue, who took part in the show for four seasons, explained:
“I was offered the chance to return, but I decided it wasn’t the right thing for me, as yet again it didn’t fit in with the commitments I’d already made to Australia’s Got Talent.”
Sounds like her decision was more business-based and not so much of a personal one!
”I am fiercely passionate about every show I commit to. I had four incredible years on The X Factor, but the show has moved on, and so have I.”
We loved her on the show she was such a good judges and she knowed what she was talking about too!
You never know she might decide one day to go back to the show?!
Mariah Carey is going to be the new girl on the judging panel on American Idol but a nsiders who worked with the singer when she appeared as a guest mentor in the show’s seventh season, that’s about the amount they deserve for having to put up with her!
Sources have also said that Carey was not only a ”nightmare to work with,” but she showed up insanely late, was nit-picky about tiny details, and just “not very nice at all.”
In contrast, former judge – and fellow diva - Jennifer Lopez was praised as a consummate professional who never made a fuss or outrageous demands!
We have to say we are not the biggest of fans of Mariah and its too much money shes getting just to be a judge on the show some needs to go to charity.
