American Idol Wants Diddy To Join Judging Panel

    Move over Nick Jonas, Pharrell, and Adam Lambert. Ryan Seacrest, are you ready for Ciroc Obama? After throwing a lot of names around the last couple of weeks and politely declining the services of Aretha Franklin and former contestant Kimberley Locke, American Idol producers are reportedly pursuing reality show veteran Sean “Diddy” Combs to fill a judging chair beside Mariah Carey and table Gibraltar Randy Jackson. This seems like a win-win: the show will keep him pretty busy and the American public can use his appearances to regulate their recommended daily Diddy allowance. Plus, Nick, Pharrell and Adam will be freed up to tour the country in a van solving mysteries. [Vulture]
