The rapper is reportedly leaving the hit Fox show after her first season as a judge...find out what other judge won't be returning next season too!

Uh oh...are we saying bye bye to the Barbz on American Idol?

Nicki Minaj is leaving the judges' table after just one season on the hit Fox show, according to UsWeekly.

"It's safe to say she isn't coming back to Idol," a source tells the mag, adding that the rapper will instead be focusing on her own music and endorsement deals. So is the singer upset that she's not returning?

"She's okay with it," the source says. "She had a great time but she was only going to do one season anyway."

Nicki frequently clashed with fellow new judge Mariah Carey, who's future on the show is also up in the air.

One judge that definitely won't be returning is Randy Jackson, who's been with the series since it premiered 12 years ago. He announced he's leaving to focus on other projects last week.

Will you miss Nicki on Idol? Catch her in action on the season finale Thursday, May 16 on Fox.
