Sean "Diddy" Combs could be next American Idol judge




American Idol must be a really lousy place to work because that show hires more judges each season than your local McDonald's hires broke teenagers. Now that Steven Tyler has ditched the show, Idol has to find another celebrity who's desperate for a comeback. Sean "Diddy" Combs is in the conversation to be the next judge, E! reports. It's unclear whether or not Diddy is interested in the gig.

Sources told E! that producers have reached out to some 20 potential judges including Adam Lambert, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Brad Paisley, Pink and Nick Jonas (Please, please, PLEASE no more Jonas. We can't take it anymore.) "What you've got to realize is you've got to create a panel that gels," producer Nigel Lythgoe said. "A panel that makes sense together. It's not just about three individuals." Well, Diddy is all about himself all the time, so good luck getting him to think about others for once!
