Rapper Kanye West is in negotiations to join the revival of American Idol as one of the show's judges.
If reports are to be believed, NBC is courting the Gold Digger hitmaker to convince him to join the judging panel on the singing competition and that the network will stop at nothing to get him on board, reported AceShowbiz.
“Ryan Seacrest has put his name forward during his negotiations to come back as host and NBC are salivating over it,” a source told Radar Online.
“Kanye is at the very top of the wish list, not Simon Cowell. If Ryan hosting can help get them Kanye, that's a happy result for NBC,” the source added.
