It looks like American Idol is on a hunting spree for the newest Idol and for new judges to qualify them.
Along with Adam Lambert, Idol’s bosses are also considering Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Katy Perry, and Will.I.Am to be the newest judges on the show according to some insiders. So, you might be wondering how many judges will there be this time, and who is most likely to snag a spot. One of the insiders spills:
“No one has signed any contracts yet, and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get. We won’t know if Randy [Jackson] and Steven [Tyler] are returning until they see who else is on board.”
Fox representatives refused to comment on the issue. The Idol bosses reportedly still want J.Lo back; however, the actress/singer hinted previously that she doesn’t want to return. And while they do love Randy and Steven, Fox would also like to have some fresh (and younger) judges, allegedly to compete with The X Factor, which recently snagged Britney Spears and Demi Lovato as judges.
Despite the absence of judges, auditions for the show’s 12th season are underway with producers calling the shots. With only three more cities to go, time is running out for Fox to decide on the latest and final list of judges!
