If you’re a fan of American Idol you already know that currently we only have one Judge and the other spots are up for grabs. Rumors are flying, and just a few days ago it was confirmed another name has been added to the list as Enrique Iglesias has been offered a spot on the judging panel.
It’s been reported that Enrique Iglesias has been offered around 4 million per season to join the judging panel that so far only includes Mariah Carey. For weeks the rumor mill has been churning overtime as it’s been reported all over the web that Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj are in the running for a judging job, but both stars have basically remained mum on the subject. It’s actually been interesting to follow as a lot of the older fans & parents don’t really want Nicki Minaj while others are saying Idol is throwing Keith Urban in there in an effort to keep with the times as The Voice has their own country judge with Blake Shelton. Either way you look at it the situation it’s certainly an interesting time if you’re a fan of Idol as the show is undergoing major changes to say the least.
Personally, I’d rather have Nicki Minaj on there over Mariah Carey. Mariah is definitely talented and has more star power, but Minaj would be a blast to watch. I’m on the fence about Urban and Iglesias; both are bona fide stars, but when I think Idol Judges I really don’t picture either of them in the spot. If Idol is on its last legs as a lot of us believe it is I think it should end just like it began… with Randy, Simon, and Paula. What do you think are the new judges going to save American Idol or is the show on its way out?
Update – Looks like Randy’s changed his mind, but there’s still talk of 2 more judges being added.Google+
