Watch out, Mariah. Diddy might be moving in!

According to the New York Post, Fox has asked Sean "Diddy" Combs to join the judges panel for Season 12 of the "American Idol.".

While Fox and Diddy have yet to comment, "Idol" is on the lookout for new judges in light of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler's departures last month and veteran judge Randy Jackson's involvement with the series also in question. He's reportedly moving over to a mentoring role.

Nick Jonas is in the running to judge "Idol" and reportedly, Pharrell Williams is as well.

But the only definitive word on the upcoming season of "Idol" has been Mariah Carey signing on to judge.

"I'm so excited to be joining 'Idol,'" Carey said via phone at the Television Critic's Association Summer Press Tour. "I wanted to be there today and I wish I could've been there myself to tell you ... It happened really quickly. I can't wait to get started in a couple months "

"American Idol" returns to Fox in January 2013.

Teri Bauer Dies On "24"
1  of  14
Many different things made "24" distinctive: The propulsive hour-by-hour format was a novelty when it debuted, and the show's kinetic visual style, which used split-screens and shaky cameras to add to the palpable tension, was also innovative. But when it comes to jaw-dropping moments, few "24" moments can top the scene in which Jack Bauer found his wife, Teri, dead. She had been murdered by Nina, a mole working for the bad guys. These sorts of things didn't happen on network television -- the hero always saved the day, right? And usually Jack Bauer did, but, as the show unflinchingly demonstrated, at a terrible personal cost.
