According to sources of Us Weekly, Nicki Minaj will be leaving American Idol. Although the standings of the remaining three are relatively unclear.
A source reveals “It’s safe to say she isn’t coming back to I do, She’s okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway.” Randy Jackson previously announced that he was leaving the show , but it’s still not clear whether Mariah Carey and Keith Urban will remain on board.
There were rumblings last month that Jennifer Lopez would be returning and taking Carey’s spot, but Fox shot down those rumors. However, given that she’s currently planning a world tour, we’re guessing she’ll be making an announcement shortly…
Fox exec Kevin Reilly told E! News that all three remaining judges are “welcome back, absolutely” for next season, adding that “everything at this point is on the table, and we’ll talk about that starting Friday.”
