Rapper/Singer/Vocal Judge Nicki Minaj is preparing to entertain the masses in her new gig as judge on the new season of Fox’s American Idol.

Negotiations for her salary clearly went more smoothly than that photo session. The star is reportedly receiving $17 million for Season 12 — $2 million more than departing judge Jennifer Lopez received in her last season. (source)

Janet Jackson hit the stage for the AI Finale last night and performed a medley composed of ‘Again’, ‘Nothing’ & ‘Nasty.’ All everyone can talk about today is her bodacious bootay…

General Larry Patt may not have made it to the American Idol stage but he did make it to the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards. Platt, an Atlanta civil rights advocate turned Idol standout star, joked around with Ryan during rehearsals:
…then performed his catchy tune with a slew of belts (a capella I must add) for the world to see during the Grammy pre-show. Word is….Platt didn’t get a ticket to the show, but at least he made it to the red carpet!
