Talk about going in a different direction. Last we heard, teen heartthrob Nick Jonas and country music star Brad Paisley were both being tapped to potentially judge the next season of American Idol. Now, the show’s producers seem to have someone else in mind: Sean “Diddy” Combs.
According to Page Six, Idol’s producers reached out to the rap mogul about sitting at the judges table. While neither camp was available to comment on the possibility, Diddy would join Mariah Carey at the critics’ table and fill the vacant spot left by Steven Tyler. If the rumors are true (and we definitely wouldn’t hate it if they were), perhaps Diddy can score a few tips from his ex-girlfriend and former Idol judge, Jennifer Lopez.
