Many sources are confirming that Nicki could be the next 'American Idol Judge'.  Both Fox and Nicki have said....


nothing.  Although, Nicki did tweet that she has a big announcement to make.


Sources close to TMZ also said that Mariah Carey isn't too happy, even hanging up the phone once she was notified that Nicki was a leading candidate.


My guess is that it's because of  that whole "Mariah needs to be the only female judge" thing.


Then again  this could all be some big joke that all of the media, including myself, is reporting.
