Now that The X Factor got its celebrity judges in place, American Idol is looking to do the same.
Producers of the hit reality show is considering some popular names to join their cast, including Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, will.i.am, Fergie and Katy Perry, according to E! News.
"No one has signed any contracts yet and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get," a source tells E!. "We won't know if Randy [Jackson] and Steven [Tyler] are returning until they see who else is on board."
The source also added that producers would like to breathe some new life into the judge spots to compliment Randy and Steven, similar to when The X Factor brought in Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.
The producer's rounds of auditions are underway for season 12, with three more cities to go before the judges get included, which leaves little time for the decision to be made. Who do you think should make the cut?
