Nicki Minaj Leaving American Idol After One Season

Nicki Minaj’s run as a judge on American Idol is about to be over. Reportedly, the YMCMB Barbie‘s first season on the reality talent show will also be her last.

Us Weekly reports:

Another seat at the American Idol judges’ table will soon be up for grabs. On the heels of Randy Jackson‘s announcement that he’s leaving the show after 12 seasons — and amid rumors that producers are firing the remaining three panelists — Us Weekly hears that Nicki Minaj will not return to the competition come fall. “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.”

Minaj joined Idol as a judge in 2012. Even before the new season commenced, there was talk of a rivalry with fellow judge American Idol. The two have been sparring privately and publicly from the start. Although Randy Jackson already announced his departure, the status of Carey and Keith Urban‘s return is still unknown.
