'American Idol': Diddy (AKA Sean Combs) In Talks To Judge

Capture Diddy Combs

Watch out, Mariah. Diddy might be moving in!

According to the New York Post, Fox has asked Sean “Diddy” Combs to join the judges panel for Season 12 of the “American Idol.”.

While Fox and Diddy have yet to comment, “Idol” is on the lookout for new judges in light of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler’s departures last month and veteran judge Randy Jackson’s involvement with the series also in question. He’s reportedly moving over to a mentoring role.

Nick Jonas is in the running to judge “Idol” and reportedly, Pharrell Williams is as well.

But the only definitive word on the upcoming season of “Idol” has been Mariah Carey signing on to judge.

“I’m so excited to be joining ‘Idol,'” Carey said via phone at the Television Critic’s Association Summer Press Tour. “I wanted to be there today and I wish I could’ve been there myself to tell you … It happened really quickly. I can’t wait to get started in a couple months ” “American Idol” returns to Fox in January 2013.
