Nicki Minaj is apparently not the only singer close to signing a deal to join American Idol.
in addition to Minaj -- who was reported to be finalizing an American Idol deal last week -- country star Keith Urban is also reportedly close to inking an agreement to join Mariah Carey on American Idol's twelfth-season judging panel, The Hollywood Reporter reported Friday.
Urban recently told an Australian radio station he had been in talks with Idol producers for weeks and is reportedly expected to receive around $3 to $4 million to serve as a judge. The payday would be only about half of the $8 million salary Minaj -- who, according to a source, may formally sign her contract any day now -- is expected to earn for judging the show.
