Not much of a shocker -- Us Weekly is reporting that Nicki Minaj will not return to American Idol next season.
An insider tells the magazine that she'll be focusing on her next album, touring and endorsements. "It's safe to say she isn't coming back to Idol. She's okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season, anyway."
That one season was plagued by low ratings and a bitter feud between Nicki and Mariah Carey.
Now it looks like producers will be on the hunt for three new judges. Randy Jackson recently announced that he's leaving the show after 12 seasons. Mariah hasn't commented on her future with Idol, but she's said to be planning a world tour. Keith Urban is the only definite return for next season.
