Might Diddy be making his way onto the set of American Idol as a judge? If the show’s producers have their way, it’s a strong possibility. Though he would definitely draw a lot of attention for his commentary and overall antics, isn’t Diddy trying to act? And start a network in the fall? Well, wait, I guess if you’re going to start a music network being on music’s biggest show might be a good idea.

We’ll see, won’t we?

In the meantime, Page Six reports:

Could Sean “Diddy” Combs be a judge on “American Idol?” We hear producers at the Fox show have reached out to the Bad Boy Records founder and rap mogul. “Idol” has an open seat on its judging panel after Steven Tyler opted to leave the show (it recently hired Mariah Carey to replace Jennifer Lopez). Fox had no comment, nor did Combs’ rep. We hear Combs will host a party at a private villa in Ibiza this week. Hamptonites still talk of Combs’ epic “white parties” from summers past.
