We all know Mariah Carey is the newest American Idol judge for next season.  We’ve also heard several names tossed-up in the air to join her, including Toni Braxton!

Well, now S&A is sharing that media reports this morning say that the producers of American Idol made an offer to Sean”Diddy” Combs to join Carey as a judge next season.

Combs would, in effect, be taking over the major male judge position on the show, replacing Steven Tyler, just as Carey has now taken over the major female judge role for the recently departed (some reports say actually fired) Jennifer Lopez.

It’s also being reported Randy Jackson will remain on the show, but has been eased out of the judge seat for a newly created “mentoring” role – which in effect means that he’s being eased out of the show altogther.


Do you think (if Diddy actually becomes an AI judge) Combs will add life to the show?  Or is American Idol on its way off the air?

Tell us what you think!
