"It's safe to say she isn't coming back to Idol," the source says, adding that Nicki will start focusing on her next album, touring, and endorsements. "She's okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway."

Randy Jackson has already resigned from Idol and producers are expected to replace the entire panel some time this summer.

Among those reportedly being considered: Harry Connick Jr., Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.
