Kanye West to be a judge on American Idol?
Let's be honest here, American Idol is one of many reality shows that feature several musicians who want to "make it big," and despite it being charming for the first few seasons, there hasn't really been a reason to watch the show for a few years now. That might be changing.
It is being reported that hip-hop star Kanye West is currently in conversations with the producers of Idol to become a judge. It's being reported that the show's producers reached out to West to possibly have him be a new judge on the show but West is allegedly requesting at least eighteen million dollars a year. To add to that, he is cautious of joining the show "because he’s not sure if 'A.I.' is in his wheelhouse."
Yo Kanye, Imma let you finish, but let me tell you, Say What! Karaoke was the best music related reality show of all time.
