Diddy is the latest name rumored to be on “American Idol‘s” wish list to fill the remaining judge’s position.

Producers have reportedly reached out to rap mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs to “woo” him into becoming an “Idol” judge, according to The New York Post.

In addition to J.Lo’s ex, Nick Jonas and Pharrell Williams have also been recently mentioned as contenders to replace departing judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.

Fox has not commented on the reports. The network announced in late July that singer Mariah Carey is joining the judges’ panel next season, reportedly earning $17 million for one year.
