After Randy Jackson’s announcement of his departure on American Idol, Nicki Minaj is set to follow his footsteps. According to reports, Minaj will focus on her upcoming tours, business deals and her next album.

The hiphop singer joined the reality singing contest on FOX network this season with fellow new judges country singer Keith Urban and Mariah Carey. During her brief stint, she had some issues with Mariah Carey that she even went on a rant against the diva via her Twitter account. Both had clashed on and off the air and Minaj slammed Mariah at one point as being insecure and bitter.

Carey hasn’t commented yet about her future with the show while Urban has remained silent whether he will be back for its 13th season.

With Randy Jackson out of the singing contest as judge for 12 seasons, and Minaj leaving as well, who would you think are better replacements?
