Does Kanye West have a new TV judging role?

We could be seeing a lot more of Kanye West on our television screens, as he has apparently been tapped to judge a newly revamped version of American Idol.  

While nothing has been set it stone, Ryan Seacrest is keen to bring back his own version of American Idol– and he wants Kanye West in the number one judging spot!

Forget Simon Cowell, it’s all about Kanye…

“Ryan Seacrest has put his name forward during his negotiations to come back as host and NBC are salivating over it,” an insider claimed.

“Kanye is at the very top of the wish list, not Simon Cowell.

“If Ryan hosting can help get them Kanye, that’s a happy result for NBC.”

We like the sound of this already. And if we are to believe other reports, Jennifer Lopez might make a very welcome return too, as Kanye West is said to be keen on getting her on board too.

Let’s hope there is some truth in these rumours, as this definitely sounds like a show we’d want to tune into every week.
