Nicki Minaj Keeping ‘American Idol’ Return A Mystery

The Saturdays In Talks To Tour With Justin Bieber

Nicki Minaj is refusing to give away whether she’ll be returning as a judge for another season of American Idol.

The rapper has been a big success since she joined the current season of the singing show, alongside new judges Keith Urban and Mariah Carey, with insiders hinting that she’ll definitely be back next year.

But Nicki won’t reveal if she plans to take her seat on the panel in 2014, as she likes to keep her fans guessing.

The Va Va Voom star was asked about being a judge again this week, when she replied: “Would I come back next season? I think people would rather be surprised.

“I like to save the mystery and the drama,” Minaj told MTV News. “I’d never give that away.”

Even if she doesn’t return, the Freedom star says it has been a dream working on the show with her co-stars as well as the production team.

“I always say this and I mean it from the bottom of my heart, just that people behind the scenes at Idol have been a dream to work with,” she shared.

“I’m just super grateful to have been given the opportunity.”
