Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Enrique Iglesias was offered a spot on the American Idol judges’ panel:
Sources say Latin singer-songwriter Enrique Iglesias has now received a firm offer for a spot on the reality hit, which may expand to fourjudges next year despite shedding its entire previous panel.
EW.com reported last week that rapper Nicki Minaj and Aussie country artist Keith Urban were poised to join pop diva Mariah Carey on the show, and that Iglesias (or, if he passes, Adam Lambert) could fill a fourth spot. Longtime Idol judge Randy Jackson is set to move to a mentor role. Now we’re hearing Iglesias has received an offer for about $4 million per year, on par with Urban’s deal.
Reportedly, Enrique has a history of turning down reality show offers, including those from The Voice and X Factor. We’ll see if he passes or says yes.
