Simon Cowell is also exiting the show, leaving questions about where the star-power will come from in Series 10.
Will P. Diddy be part of the mix?
The rap mogul put himself forward for the open judging position and revealed that he’s eyeing Cowell’s “Idol” salary.
“At first when people were asking me if I was interested in the job I was like no…that’s not my style,” Diddy said to George Lopez on Wednesday’s “Lopez Tonight.”
