Nicki Minaj arrives to continue judging auditions for ‘American Idol’ in New York City.
(September 17, 2012)

*Nicki Minaj will indeed be coming to E!, but not in a traditional reality series.


A source told, “The plan is to do specials with her, not a whole series.”

E! will reportedly air three Minaj specials later this fall. Some filming has already taken place, according to Deadline.

Minaj, currently an “American Idol” judge alongside Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson, actually appeared on E! recently in “Idol” executive producer Nigel Lythgoe’ s new show “Opening Act.” She gave a spot on her upcoming tour to boy band Gotham Citi, as part of the series.

Minaj has a six-week tour starting in late October and an expanded re-release of her “Pink Friday” album out in November.
