Nicki Minaj Leaving 'American Idol' After This Season?

Nicki Minaj is reportedly leaving American Idol after this current season, Us Weekly reports.

“It’s safe to say she isn’t coming back to Idol,” a source told the mag about the 30-year-old entertainer, also adding that she will be focusing on her album, touring, and endorsements instead. “She’s okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway.”

Nicki joined American Idol with Mariah Carey back in 2012. Randy Jackson, veteran judge since season one, has just announced that he will not be returning.

ARE YOU SAD that Nicki Minaj is reportedly not returning to American Idol??

American idol is not the same without the original cast. This should be called ” getting my fame and leaving”

KEITH URBAN IS A GREAT JUDGE ON AMERICAN IDOL? KEITH KNOWS WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT, KEITH HAS IT ALL TALENT, KNOWS ALL TYPES OF MUSIC! HANDSOME. KEITH IS THE REASON I STARTED WATCHING IDOL? I THOUGHT NICKI AND KEITH WERE GOOD TOGETHER, HE GOT A REAL KICK OUT OF HER.

The best news EVER!!

Couldn’t be happier that Nicki Minaj is leaving. All she wants to do is hear herself talk. She is the truly boring.

Joni, please don’t put Keith in the same category as Nicki. He was good to her, and seemed loyal when the going got rough. However, babysitting wasn’t in his job description. Keith seems to be a good guy and he needs to come back next year and be able to concentrate on the talent instead of worry what Nicki’s going to do next.

Thank god, just hate she keep commenting what people wear but not their singing. This is not freakn fashion show

The tacky troll can only be gone from trollville for a year. Get back under the bridge your talentless troll. She is the mistake I’m sure they would like to take back!

Lord I hope she goes…..can’t stand her!

Really? I actually thought Nicki was a good judge, giving sharp and substantial comments. Randy and Mariah were horrible judges, couldn’t give consistent comments at all. But neither Nicki or Keith should stay for another year so that they can focus on their own career.

Thank goodness Keith Urban is staying. He has such insight and is so intelligent and KNOWS MUSIC. GoodBye Nicki and hopefully goodbye Mariah!!

American Idol, it’s sad because I grew up watching you. This is your worst season and worst set of judges ever except for Randy! Don’t make another season. Good thing there’s X Factor and The Voice! It’s time to retire AI, not only the judges.

can’t wait to see the last of her! I have always liked Randy and find Keith to be an excellent judge. Mariah is Mariah … Wonderful. Always gracious and kind. someone needs to be with these kids. I hope she stays!

That news is a great relief! There is a God…
