"American Idol" is going through some drastic changes, which will see some new judges join the cast.

"No one has signed any contracts yet and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get," an insider tells E! News. "We won't know if Randy [Jackson] and Steven [Tyler] are returning until they see who else is on board." 

Jennifer Lopez is most likely a goner, and with Britney Spears and Demi Lovato joining the cast of "X-Factor," there's a strong chance that the show will look to add someone younger to compete.

Who? Well, the names being tossed around right now on the male side are Adam Lambert and will.i.am, but assuming Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler come back, it makes no sense to cast more men. To that end, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Fergie are all reportedly in the running for the gig.

We kind of hope Nicki gets cast. That will really piss Peter Rosenberg off. Right?
