Diddy might just be taking the vacant seat next to Mariah Carey on American Idol.
According to the NY Post:
We hear producers at the Fox show have reached out to the Bad Boy Records founder and rap mogul. “Idol” has an open seat on its judging panel after Steven Tyler opted to leave the show (it recently hired Mariah Carey to replace Jennifer Lopez). Fox had no comment, nor did Combs’ rep.
Idol is definitely reaching for a more urban audience. First with Mariah & now with Diddy (allegedly), the show is going in a new direction to boost it’s ratings.
P.S. I would much rather see Diddy host X Factor than judge Idol, but good for them!
