Miley Cyrus 'American Idol' Judge Update, Plus Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban Close to Signing On?

Pin It

Miley Cyrus is no longer in the running for an American Idol judge spot. There's been so much buzz about the new American Idol judges, it's hard to sort out reality from gossip.

One thing that's known, however, is that Miley Cyrus will not be gracing Idol's judges' table.

E! News confirms that Miley is "no longer in the running for a vacant Idol judge's spot," with sources telling E! that Miley "was approached for the Idol gig, but talks never went far and she never seriously considered it."

Nicki Minaj seems like a safe bet to fill the vacancy, with a source telling E! News that she's "definitely" joining Idol--buzz that The Hollywood Reporter supports.

A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that Nicki and country star Keith Urban are nearing deals.

We're still holding out hope for Nick Jonas though!
