Well, it could have happened except he declined the offer. I wonder if he would have been the Simon Cowell of this upcoming 13th season?
According to US Weekly Magazine, "A source tells Us Weekly exclusively that the hip hop star was offered the third and final spot on Idol's judging panel for the upcoming 13th season. After thinking it over, however, he decided to pass, in part because he worried it would hurt his reputation. 'He didn't want to go that mainstream,' the source tells Us of the 'Black Skinhead' rapper, 36, who has a 2-month-old daughter, North, with Kardashian, 32. 'He didn't want to lose any street cred. So he turned it down.' The insider notes that Idol producers also met with three other contenders for the spot: Will.i.am, Sean "Diddy" Combs, and Rodney Jerkins. In the end, though, their top choice appears to be songwriter and record producer Dr. Luke (real name: Lukasz Gottwald)."
