Pharrell Williams in America Idol negotiations

NEW JUDGE?: Pharrell Williams

PHARRELL WILLIAMS is said to be in talks to join Mariah Carey on the judging panel of American Idol.

The N*E*R*D front man is one of the front runners in the race for the coveted roles, which followed the departure of Idol judges, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler last month.

"American Idol producers think he can help bring that younger demo to the show," a source told

It is believed that Hot and Fun star is currently negotiating the terms of his contract with the source adding: “Everything is looking good, but they're still working out details.”

Mariah confirmed last week that she had agreed on a deal with the television talent show. She is thought to have agreed an $18 million deal.

She said: "As a singer, songwriter and producer, it's going to be fun and rewarding to help find new talent and give back to American Idol."
