American Idol: Miley Cyrus being considered for a judging gig?

American Idol: Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Fergie and Will.I.Am Being Considered as Judges

Spoiler Alert: The American Idol judges table could look very different this fall!

Sources confirm exclusively that along with Adam Lambert (a story we reported earlier today), Idol's big bosses are also considering some other notable names to join the cast, including: Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Katy Perry and (frequent A.I. mentor) Will.I.Am.

So how many new judges will there be? And who's most likely to get the gig?

"No one has signed any contracts yet and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get," one Idol insider tells me. "We won't know if Randy [Jackson] and Steven [Tyler] are returning until they see who else is on board."

A rep for Fox declined to comment for this story.

According to sources, the American Idol higher-ups all agree they want Jennifer Lopez back, however, as we previously reported, the megastar isn't planning to return. And while we are told Idol's big bosses are fans of Randy and Steven, they also would like to breathe some new (possibly younger) life into the series to compete with X Factor, which recently cast Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.

It's possible there may be more than one new AI judge this fall.

Auditions for season 12 of American Idol are currently underway—the producers' rounds, with no judges in attendance. Today, they are in Chicago with three more cities to go. So the clock is ticking on finalizing the cast!

Who has your vote, America? Adam? Miley? Will.I.Am? Nicki? Fergie? Katy? None of the above?

Dial in your vote in the comments!

Do you think Miley would be a good AI judge?? Do you want her to get the gig?

dnw crazy lovatics saying Miley "copied" Demi.

i'm sorry sis is this 2011? she's not working every single day 24/7 (people should be entitled to off days, what even) but we have seen that she's actually recording and setting up a website relaunch. So i really don't understand comments like this anymore.
astorpl 9th-Jul-2012 09:05 pm (UTC)
lol i don't think she'd wanna work that much. actual alarm clock and waking up and hair being done :o and she'd need a dogsitter for sure

AI would get the exclusive first clips and performances for the new album so both parties would benefit if she gets the job. it would give her loads of press since she plans to release an album and tour next year supposedly.

Well she said no to x factor, so I don't see this happening. I'd love for her to work though :/

Who said she turned down X factor job?

Miley and fergie would be really cute together, katy too but that one can get annoying real quick.
imahouseofcards 9th-Jul-2012 09:16 pm (UTC)
Miley and Katy are both so obnoxious lol bad combo imo even tho I like them both
matecyrus 9th-Jul-2012 09:14 pm (UTC)
I don't think she will do it anyway.
wilddude11 9th-Jul-2012 09:15 pm (UTC)
If Miley does this, when all we need is Selena to judge something so every disney star from that generation would currently be a judge lol.

fergie?? really?

I think this is the same thing with XFactor, they were just throwing out names to keep the press reporting on the show. I don't believe JLo has any intention of leaving AI, they're just doing this to milk press. While her comeback has been impressive, JLo can only shift singles and her movies aren't huge like the Maid in Manhattan etc movies she did prior. Although she's werking those endorsement deals, JLo isn't back up to the highest point she was at before and idt she'll ever truly leave AI until she gets there and doesn't need the show to prop her popularity.

However, if Miley does do the show, I think it's a great opportunity. It's one that will get her name back out there and has a really good cross-promo available to her for her album release. I think that she was really good when she was a guest-mentor for AI in 2010.

I think this could be really good for her if she does do it. I mean look at Demi. And even JLo. It's helped both of them. The XFactor hasn't even aired yet and Demi is getting praise for it. I wasn't too happy about Demi doing it, but now I think it was really wise for her to do it. So, as a fan of Miley, I'd totally watch for her.
