American Idol has their eyes on Kanye West. According to TMZ, the reality tv show is looking at 1/2 of The Throne to join their judging panel. Producers for the show have been in negotiation talks with ‘Ye, though a full commitment hasn’t been confirmed. This comes on the heels of Mariah Carey joining the team for a cool $18-Million a year, plus rumors swirling of Nicki Minaj possibly bringing her expertise on board.

MissInfo: Honestly, I’m not surprised. It seems like ever since AI lost J.Lo and Steven Tyler, they’ve been hitting up everyone. Kanye would be the best for us, maybe worst for them. Either way, even just the possibility that ‘Ye would be a judge means that the transformation is complete….from Fendi internship to going to Midori parties with Kim K to judging American Idol contestants in Cleveland with Randy Jackson. Next up…Dancing with the Stars.
