According to Us Weekly, an insider from Nicki's camp says that the "Super Bass" diva will not be returning next season and that she's OK with that because she was only looking for one season anyway.
"It's safe to say she isn't coming back to Idol," the insider said, adding that Nicki will be focusing on her next album, touring, and endorsements. "She's okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway."
If that's true, we can probably speculate that Mariah Carey will be taking off after this season because she is rumored to be planning a world tour after releasing her new single "#Beautiful."
As for Keith?
The country singer exclusively told E! News that he has yet to hear either way if he'll be back next season.
"I would come back," Keith told the entertainment news outlet after Wednesday's finale performance show. "I loved the whole adventure and journey and watching these guys go from these towns that we found them in to the final stage."
He continued, "I love [being a mentor]. I see lots of things in them, habits I had or things I had to break through. They're often just tiny things. It's like puppy fat, you just have to shed that and there it is!!"
What's your verdict: Let Nicki walk? Keep Keith? Let us know!
