No, the American Idol rumormill has NOT slowed down, now Yeezy's name is being thrown in to the mix. Hey friends, I'm Misty Kingma, welcome back to ClevverMusic. We're not sure if the Fox execs are purposefully leaking rumors on who is heading to the judging panel on Season 12 of American Idol, to keep us consistently talking about it- but it's working.

Now, Kanye West is the latest high profile singer to have been approached by the reality singing show. What surprises us about this is that Yeezy is actually interested. We know he's busy at work finishing his collaborative project "Cruel Summer" and spending time with Kim K, but he's interested. If he does say yes, there will be the money issue, cause no doubt he'll want $18 million just like newly signed judge Mariah Carey.

Reports say right now Kanye is "on the fence" and deciding whether 'Idol' is "in his wheelhouse". Honestly, we're a little skeptical about this one. But who we CAN see on the panel is rocker Lenny Kravitz. Mariah Carey hasn't been shy about her feelings of not wanting Nicki Minaj to join the panel, as she wants to be the only female judge. TMZ claims Mimi hung up the phone when someone told her Nicki was a top candidate. So Mariah has taken matters into her own hands and has been tweeting to pal Lenny Kravitz, campaigning to get him on the panel. She tweeted ". @AmericanIdol What's Going On? need the info!! What about this combo?! if we could ever get him to do it!" And attached was an old school photo of the two singers together.

What we love about this tweet is Mariah admitting she has no idea what's going on. We know from inside sources that many 'Idol' execs don't even know what's going on. No doubt they have to keep it hush hush so all the deals remain secret until signed on the line. Now guys- it's your turn to weigh in. How do you feel about Kanye joining 'American Idol'?
