Nicki Minaj to Judge The X-Factor?

by at . Comments

Will X mark the judging spot for Nicki Minaj?

Insiders tell The New York Post that Simon Cowell has met with this hip hop star about coming on board The X-Factor this fall as a judge. She would join recently-announced producer L.A. Reid on the panel if she agreed to make the move.

Nicki Minaj: The Devil?

"Simon thinks Nicki is fantastic. She's sassy, she looks great and she has bags of personality," a source tells the newspaper. "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."

Auditions for The X-Factor kick off on March 27.

This would be an unusual gig for Minaj to accept, considering her current popularity. Most singers join a reality show to revive a career (see Aguilera, Christina on The Voice and Lopez, Jennifer on American Idol). Other names under consideration include Tommy Mottola, Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole.

UPDATE: We can now answer the question posed in the headline: No. Sources have said Minaj will NOT serve as a judge.
