Mariah Carey Wants Lenny Kravitz On ‘American Idol,’ Not Nicki Minaj

Nicki may be in the running to be a new ‘American Idol’ judge, but a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Mariah has someone else in mind: her pal, Lenny! Read on for the inside scoop.

Nicki Minaj may have worked on Mariah Carey‘s 2010 song “Up Out My Face,” but it doesn’t look like she has a fan in the diva belter. Mariah is not pleased that Nicki is being considered to sit beside her as a judge next season on American Idol and would rather have her friend Lenny Kravitz by her side, a source tells us!

A friend of Mariah’s tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Mariah would love to have her dear friend Lenny Kravitz sit next to her on the American Idol judge panel. She thinks he would be the perfect choice because he is extremely talented and knows music inside and out.”

Our source had some harsh words for Nicki! “Nicki on the other hand isn’t established enough to qualify as a judge,” they say. “Mariah wants a panel of bright, inspirational and constructive judges. Not some freak show! Mariah thinks Nicki will just be a distraction and it will all be about her and her outrageous behavior. Mariah will NOT be happy if Nicki joins the panel and she has let the producers know just how she feels!”

Who do you think would be a better judge, HollywoodLifers? Nicki or Lenny?

Nicki Minaj is a FREAK SHOW, she is definitely NOT qualified to be a judge on any type of talent show, especially when it comes to television. Perhaps if she were just a voice on the radio, I might turn a deaf ear, but definitely NOT on television and NEVER on American Idol.

These divas are ruining my prospects of even seeing this season’s American Idol. It is turning into a circus. Why couldn’t AI have gotten good singers that are not crazy and demanding. Another show bites the dust.

If this is true then Mariah Carey is a sneak disser bcuz she sholl wasnt saying this when she wanted Nicki to be on her track and maybe if nICKI gets on the show them damn ratings will go back up and the only reason Mariah prolly dont want Nicki on there cuz Mariah wants to be center of attention which will not happen if Nicki is there and lastly they need some one who is hot in the game at this paricular moment and y not Nicki
