Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Pink and Diddy are being lined up for the new season of American Idol.
Producers on the show are reportedly desperate to sign up the quartet to replace current judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson and Keith Urban after ratings fell dramatically this year.
"It's been a lackluster season for Idol and everyone involved with the show is well aware of it so that's why producers are franticly working on lining up big name stars for season 14. There's more drama going on behind the scenes of the show than on the stage, and that's why there's a major overhaul in the works. A telling sign was that the highlight of the season was Mariah and Nicki's explosive feud that was leaked on the web - and that was before the season even aired. Producers have been trying to recreate that buzz ever since and it hasn't worked - the public isn't buying it. The judges don't have real chemistry, and there's no real standout contestant," a source said.
The source additionally explained the choice in choosing the rumored new judges:
Pink turned down roles judging The X Factor, American Idol and The Voice.
The outspoken 32-year-old singer said she refused to take part in the reality TV shows since "you can't be honest" and thought the public would hate her if she voiced her true feelings because there is only room for one "Mr Nasty."
"I was offered The Voice in Australia plus American Idol and The X Factor. I said no because you can't be honest.'' People will hate you if you're honest. Simon Cowell is the only person who gets away with it because he's got an accent. And he's a man."
The "So What" hitmaker - who has 14-month-old daughter Willow with her husband Carey Grant - has also revealed that being a mother is proving far more emotional than she expected and confessed she cries "daily." She told Entertainment Tonight that she likes Carey to take the blame for their parenting mistakes, joking, "I'm a perfectionist, I cry daily! I'm glad though that the two things that have gone wrong were Dad's fault. The first time anything bad happened he was like, 'Oh, I'm so glad it was me!' I'm like, 'Me too! I'm going to cry anyway though.'"

Let’s just make this clear—this stunt was not orchestrated like Bruno’s moment with Eminem.
During tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West stunned the audience—and an already stunned Taylor Swift—with a declaration that will be talked about for quite some time. While accepting an award for Best Female Video, the country singer was interrupted by the rapper who was upset about Beyonce’s loss in the category.
Although Kanye is known for acting like a child when he is not presented an award, he felt it was necessary to defend Ms. Knowles’ honor during Taylor’s moment on stage. (Based on the shocked expression on Beyonce’s face, she clearly didn’t want his help.) Unfortunately, that left the beautiful 19-year-old standing there with nothing left to say.
