Just when you thought American Idol had narrowed down its selections for the Season 12 judging table to a few names...
According to TMZ, producers have reached out to Kanye West about sitting alongside Mariah Carey on the Fox juggernaut - and the rapper has expressed interest in the gig.
West, of course, would bring major legitimacy and name recognition to the show. Although he's really only been in the news these days because he's dating Kim Kardashian for some reason.
Insiders say Kanye is "on the fence" because he isn't sure if Idol would be a solid fit for his brand, while those behind the program would need to consider writing another huge paycheck. West would not take a penny less than Carey's $17 million/year, sources say.
Nicki Minaj, meanwhile, is considered a near lock for one of the judging positions, much to the chagrin of Mariah.
Would you want to see Kanye join them?
