It is that time of year again, when the rumour mill begins to churn out the list of potential names to join the judging panel for the next season of American Idol. It has already been confirmed that Randy Jackson will leave the show at the end of this season, while there are rumours that the remaining judges, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban and Mariah Carey are all getting the boot.
That leaves all four chairs open to speculation over who will fill them and the latest name linked to the role of judge on next seasons American Idol is Alicia Keys. However, Alicia has admitted that she might find it difficult to fit American Idol into her busy schedule.
Keys told Life & Style, "I don't know if I'd want to be a judge. I'm about to go to Europe for my tour and then I have Brazil and Rock In Rio with Justin Timberlake, which will be crazy… and Asia and Australia so, that's going to take me right on up through January."
Alicia Keys also expressed her disappointment that Randy Jackson has decided to leave the show, she added, "I think he's amazing. I really love him a lot… for lots of years." Alicia Key has performed on American Idol on more than a few occasions over the past four years. American Idol airs on Fox on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
