    She just ccanceled all her gig because her vocal chords were damaged and has to have surgery. Maybe the surgery is a vocal transplant. The doctors will actually giving her a singing voice.

    This is all BS.

    That is so stupid. Who would want to be judged by her, who cares about her opinion? Hearing Mariah Carey’s opinion about you, big deal. But with her.. I’d be like.. who are you to say anything? She always looks ridiculous and she doesn’t sing. She raps.

    Absolutely not. Do not make her a judge on this show. This is the absolute WORST move that FOX could make. Their ratings will go downhill if they sign Nicki as a judge.

    What is idol thinking?? She can’t even string two sentences together or sing for that matter!

    Dee Says:

    Talentless, vapid and trashy. Not to mention that she can’t sing to save her life. If Idol hired this one, I do hope they sink like the Titanic.

    Well, don’t think I will be tuning in! YUCK….is this all they got to offer?? Goodbye AI!

    Well I guess it’s a good thing Adam Lambert is not being considered any longer because Idol is a sinking ship with no clear direction and he is clearly on the rise! I know of at least 3 households who will no longer be watching and I’m sure I am NOT alone! Good by American Idol! It was nice while it lasted!

    I think this is a PR stunt. All kinds of random people seem to be possible judges on Idol. Notice how nothing is official so that Idol can’t sue them but they want to link themselves to make it look like they are desired. None of the recent names thrown around have made any sense with maybe the exception of that Jonas kid. I kind of believe this a little more because of what Simon did, hiring 19 year old Demi Lovato for X factor. Idol would counter that with a 20 year old Jonas. they both bring in rabid fans who love to tweet and text which is good for a show like Idol.

    ugh. what a great person for idol to align themselves with. someone that just spent all morning telling people to kill themselves and choke on dicks and calling their mothers whores. she’s a mess and she can’t even sing. idol is such a joke now.

    OH NO you can’t be SERIOUS? She’s trashy beyond belief and can’t sing at all just raps. How could she ever judge a singing competition?
