After a couple of canceled performances and a new Us Weekly report, speculation that Nicki Minaj will help to judge American Idol‘s 12th season is at a fever pitch. And while nothing is final yet, sources have told EW that the Pink Friday rapper is in deep talks to join Fox’s reality juggernaut — though, again, no deal has been made.

Pop diva Mariah Carey signed on to become an Idol judge this summer, shortly after Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler and multihyphenate Jennifer Lopez left the show. Singer Nick Jonas revealed a few weeks ago that he is also “being considered” for a seat on the panel. (Sorry, Snoop.)
