Nicki Minaj has announced that she is leaving “American Idol” after this season. There were rumors that the entire judging panel was getting the boot, so this should come as a surprise to absolutely no one. Randy Jackson has already announced his departure from the show, so we’re basically waiting on the announcement from Keith Urban and Mariah Carey.
From Us Weekly:
“It’s safe to say she isn’t coming back to Idol,” an insider tells Us, adding that the “Roman Holiday” rapper will be 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.”
Is anyone shocked? Do you think you’ll miss any of the judges next season? We were legitimately surprised to hear about Randy leaving the show, but this isn’t surprising at all. Was Nicki the most annoying judge?
