Nicki Minaj Leaving American Idols...
Nicki Minaj is following Mariah Carey out of the revolving door that is American Idol. The singer took to Twitter to announce her long-rumoured departure after one season, adding that it is now “time to focus on the music”.
American Idol broadcaster Fox and producers FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment also thanked the musician for her contribution on Thursday.
“Nicki Minaj is a superstar who brought a level of honesty and passion to American Idol and who had a tremendous positive impact on so many contestants this season,” read a joint statement.
“Given her extremely busy career, we understand and respect her decision and wish her the best.”
Randy Jackson revealed his decision to quit the series earlier this month, while Keith Urban has yet to hear about his future on the panel.
