| Nicki is leaving Idol!!! |
| Another seat at the American Idol judges' table will soon be up for grabs. On the heels of Randy Jackson's announcement that he's leaving the show after 12 seasons -- and amid rumors that producers are firing the remaining three panelists -- Us Weekly hears that Nicki Minaj will not return to the competition come fall.
"It's safe to say she isn't coming back to Idol," an insider tells Us, adding that the "Roman Holiday" rapper will be focusing on her next album, touring, and endorsements. "She's okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway."
