Is Nicki Minaj joining American Idol?

American rapper Nicki Minaj is favourite to join the new American Idol judging panel, according to reports.

One insider stated that the Starships star was “100% confirmed” to join the talent show, but another source chose to give less away.

“I'm not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it," the source said. "A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening."

If Nicki does become a judge on American Idol she’ll be joining megastar and fellow diva Mariah Carey.

We get the feeling there will be some fighting for the spotlight from these larger than life characters.

The ladies will also be joined by old American Idol favourite Randy Jackson, who’s been a judge on the show since day one.

Since Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler announced they wouldn’t be returning for the new series, a number of celebs have been rumoured to be joining the panel.

Nick Jonas recently confirmed on Twitter that he is being considered for the job, while P Diddy and Adam Lambert are among the other names who have been rumoured for the position.

We hope the American Idol producers don’t mind a few naughty words here and there because Nicki recently took to Twitter to tell fans to “eat sh*t and die” after a few of her followers were disappointed at her cancelling her V festival performance because of "vocal chord issues" at the weekend.

She’s also cancelled tonight's gig at Dublin's Olympia Theatre.

"I am so thankful to my true fans who understand WHY I couldn't play #VFestival & WHY I can't play Dublin. Absolutely gutted," Nicki tweeted.

"However, if u have anything negative to say to me, please #EatS**tAndDie - I am human. I was in jeopardy of losing my voice entirely and needing surgery on my vocal chord. If u can't understand that, your mother's a WH*RE!

"I will NOT let you people make me feel horrible for a f**king HEALTH issue! That's what got me in this mess! I shldve listened 2 the doctor! Like people are hitting me telling me I shldve mimed. No! Then you woulda made a f**king STORY out of that too! #killyaf**kingself.

"My beloved United Kingdom, u know how much I f**king love u! Ireland, I truly appreciate you. Barbz, thnku for the well wishes."

She added: "All you do is rip people apart and when they're dead & gone u won't lose a wink of sleep. #goF**kYourselves. Barbz, u know how much I hate disappointing u guys."
