Nicki Minaj: X-Factor's New Judge?

Nicki Minaj may become one of the judges on the upcoming Fox talent show, The X Factor, set to premiere this fall.

The 26-year-old rapper recently met with Simon Cowell in Los Angeles, according to Page Six.

Simon thinks Nicki is fantastic. She’s sassy, she looks great, and she has bags of personality,” a source says. “Nicki has a large following and she fits well with the ethos of the show, which plans to usher in a new generation of musical talent. X Factor is aiming for a younger audience. Those aged 12 and over can audition, and [the English version has] launched successful artists from other genres of music than pop.”

“This isn’t a done deal yet, but Nicki would be great for the show. She fits the ideal that X Factor will be exciting, vibrant,different, and the show would also be great for her career.”

Last week, it was announced that music exec L.A. Reid signed on as the first judge for The X Factor.
