Will viewers of the 12th season of American Idol inadvertently get a dose of Kim Kardashian?
Perhaps, if the latest possible judge rumor — Kanye West — comes to fruition.
Kanye is the latest name being floated around as a possible contender for the one (maybe two?) vacant judging seat(s) open next season.
Sources close to the hitmaker say FOX approached him and offered to at least match the $18 million offered to Mariah Carey — which certainly had Kanye listening — but he hasn't signed any contracts yet.
He's reportedly "on the fence" about the commitment, which is probably due to a rather full plate full of music, fashion and, of course, being one half of everyone's most photographed couple, Kimye.
Meanwhile, Mariah Carey pitched good friend Lenny Kravitz for the gig, while network executives are rumored to have narrowed down the list to Brad Paisley, Keith Urban or Enrique Iglesias.
