Rumors are swirling again about who will take the seat next to Mariah Carey on the American Idol judge panel. The newest rumors involve Kanye West and Nicki Minaj. Let's start with the barbie herself, Nicki. Of course, she will keep us on the edge of our seats wondering what color hair she will have or what personality she will be channeling that night. However, I think that's about all she will bring to the table.  Kanye West, on the other hand, might bring a little more. Yes, he is arrogant and a bit standoffish, but I think that's what the show needs! Ever since Simon Cowell left the show, something has been missing. Kanye might fill the void of Simon. I think everyone would anticipate his critiques each night and he might even give the show a little bit of an edge. This could be what the show needs as long as he doesn't pull something like he did to Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMA's. Can you just imagine a contestant on stage singing and Kanye running on stage with "I'ma let you finish but…"? Who would you like to see on the American Idol judging panel?
