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?

Read the last line. When every media started reporting that Demi was the front-runner they all said no offers had been made at that point to the contenders. And since Demi was the front-runner and close to a deal at a point when Miley hadn't been offered then it means that Miley was never offered.

If you get what I mean and there were no reports of Miley getting an offer even though TMZ had all the inside info through the whole process.

But whatever... I just want Miley to do this.
