Why did they choose Nicki Minaj to judge American Idol?
American Idol is a joke. Nicki Minaj as judge just proves it.
Cause' she's just as crazy as a few of the contestants, or she probably volunteered for the money.
Because its a stupid show for stupid people
They needed a big name. At the time, they had asked Mariah Carey, but she had not responded. They needed someone to fill that slot, and so signed her. And then Mariah said yes, and the couldn't get rid of Minaj because of the contract.
she needed money and wanted more attention see how dramatic she acts on the show its ridiculous
