Now that rapper Nicki Minaj has been confirmed as one of the new judges on American Idol, a lot of people are wondering how much is she getting paid.
According to reports,
Nicki Minaj is getting $12 million for a one-year deal on the hit Fox singing series, a person in the music industry with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Sunday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the deal.
A representative for Urban wouldn’t disclose the singer’s compensation for “Idol.”
The announcement also settled the status of Randy Jackson. He will stay put as the sole remaining original “Idol” judge, scotching rumors he might assume a different role on the popular talent competition.
This trio will join pop star Mariah Carey at a judges’ panel now expanded to four members from its previous three. The AP reported in July that Carey is receiving just shy of $18 million for a one-year contract with a renewal option.
This is a good come up for Nicki…1 year deal worth 12 million dollars.
