It’s official guys. Ryan Seacrest announced just this morning that Nicki Minaj, along with country singer Keith Urban, will join Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson as the two newest ‘American Idol’ judges.
The host posted this below photo and this message via Twitter, “It’s official, your new #IdolJudges are @MariahCarey, @NickiMinaj, @KeithUrban & @Yo_RandyJackson!”
Since the departure of judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler was announced this past Summer, Mariah Carey was announced as an immediate replacement. Although rumors swarmed that long time judge Randy Jackson was undecided, it was announced last week that yes he’d be back. As for Nicki and Keith Urban, although its been rumored for weeks the announcement today makes it official!
What are your thoughts, did Idol get it right this time? More importantly, will the two divas (Nicki and Mariah) get along or will Nicki theatrics distract from the show’s contestants.
Either way, ones things sure, we will certainly be watching! Will you?
