Enrique Iglesias reportedly offered 'American Idol' judging position

By Kristen Spicker,

Enrique Iglesias might be the next judge to join Mariah Carey behind the table for American Idol's 12th season.

Sources reveaked to EW that the Latin singer received a firm offer for a judging position.

The publication reported rumors last week of Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban also may judge the singing competition, meaning that the judges would represent four different genres of music: pop, country, hip-hop and Latin.

The only judge confirmed by Fox producers is Carey.

According to Rolling Stone, the Roman Reloaded rapper addressed judging rumors at the VMAs Thursday.

“You know something, I don't know yet. I really don't know. I have no comment on it,” Minaj said.

When pressed if it was the show’s decision or her’s, she replied, “Everything in my life, every opportunity is always my decision.”

Iglesias has received an offer from The X Factor in the past, and was reportedly talking with NBC about The Voice.

The Latin singer just wrapped a tour with ex-Idol judge Jennifer Lopez.
