While its not set in stone, according to TMZ, Mr. West's people are in negotiations with A.I. about adding his "personality" to the judges panel. This, of course, would be a huge win for the show and would more than likely bring back a lot of the viewers it lost to competitors like X-Factor and The Voice. But dont jump and down in your skinny jeans just yet, they are just TALKING about the possibility of him on the show:
But [Kanye's interest] doesn’t mean he’s on board — we’re told Yeezy is still
unsure about accepting the gig. The way it was put to us … “He’s on the fence,”
because he’s not sure if “A.I.” is in his wheelhouse.
another big hang up — cash. Informed sources tell TMZ … “Idol” would “at least
match Mariah’s salary” — a cool $18 mil a year.
I would love to see A.I. make this happen. Kanye's words of wisdom always give me a nice hardy chuckle.
