Recently, there were rumors making the rounds that Nicki Minaj wouldn’t be asked back for a second season of the hit singing competition “American Idol”. She chastises the competitors, yells at them to get off of the stage and torments the show’s censors with words like “pianist”, but apparently the rumors of her departure from the show are just that — rumors.
The show’s producer, Nigel Lythgoe has said that she is, in fact, welcome back for another season. The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop:
Nicki Minaj, the most controversial American Idol judge since Simon Cowell, will continue to have a seat on the judges’ panel next season, if she wants it.
When asked whether Minaj was welcome back for another round, Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe — addressing a TMZ videographer on his way into a Malibu restaurant over the weekend — declared: “By me, she certainly will be!”
