The New York Post’s Page Six is reporting that “American Idol” is seriously courting Sean “Diddy” Combs in hopes he will join the judging panel.

“We hear producers at the Fox show have reached out to the Bad Boy Records founder and rap mogul,” the column reports.

“Idol” has a seat open on its judging panel after Steven Tyler decided to quit.  Mariah Carey was hired to replace Diddy’s ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez.
