Enrique Iglesias: In Talks To Be 'American Idol' Judge

Hang on a sec, Kanye… Enrique's not out of the running just yet.

Following in the major press that Nicki Minaj and Kanye West are getting as potential judges on the new season of FOX’s “American Idol,” Enrique Iglesias would like to remind us all that the he has not been ruled out.

Hollyscoop spoke with source close to the Latin pop star who confirmed that he is still among the choices for a new talent judge on the show.
“We can confirm they are discussing,” the source said. “Yes, Idol has expressed a lot of interest but no final word on either side yet."

On the verge of confirmation as a new judge is New York City rapper Nicki Minaj, who some sources are reporting has already singed a deal with FOX.

But, due to new rumors that “Idol” might be adding a fourth judge to its 13th season, even if Nicki is an official choice, it doesn’t mean that she is the only choice.
As of right now, Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson are the only certified judges on the show so far.

According to TMZ, upon hearing the news of Minaj as a potential judge, Mariah was not happy as she was led to believe that she was to be the only woman on the panel this year.

Luckily for Mariah, Nicki is the only female to be majorly rumored for the final choice/choices. Along with Iglesias, Nick Jonas and Kanye West are the big names to catch a lot of buzz as new judge options.

As reported earlier today, Kanye is still considering if he is willing to compromise his career with a full season commitment.
