Going, Going, Gone
It's all but certain Nicki Minaj will not return as a judge next season on " American Idol".
Us Weekly quotes an inside source saying " It's safe to say she isn't coming back to Idol ",fellow judge Randy Jackson announced last week he was not coming back after 12 seasons. Nicki had an on going feud with Mariah Carey all season and at first producers of the show thought the feud would bring in ratings but it didn't and in recent days there have been rumors all of the judges would be replaced anyway. So maybe this is Nicki's way of leaving before she's fired from the show. Another source says "Nicki had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway " .
