After the Season 12 disaster of Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, FOX may not be looking to fill the judging table ranks with another boldfaced superstar - and yet Pink is an altogether different pop-star animal than either of the two aforementioned divas. For one thing, she's not exactly known for biting her tongue, meaning she might actually offer up some worthwhile criticism to the contestants (i.e. the people "Idol" is supposed to be about). Secondly, despite her millions of album sales and Grammy wins she's got a refreshingly down-to-earth quality that would make her far more likable to the average viewer than Carey or Minaj. Of course, with her career hotter than ever at the current moment (her monster single "Just Give Me a Reason" recently hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100), would she even want the job to begin with?
