So it’s official, the American Idol new judging panel will include some of music’s biggest stars!
Leading the way will be the diva herself, Mariah Carey, with her $20 million contract and fellow new Idol cast-mates – Trinidadian YMCMB rapstress Nicki Minaj, country singer Keith Urban, with American Idol veterans Randy Jackson back in the judging seat and host Ryan Seacrest.
Though an “official” FOX announcement has not been made, this photo tweeted by Mariah seems to confirm it all….
Even Ryan Seacrest concreted the announcement with these tweets today:
Despite a lot of critics against Nicki as choice of judge for a talent competition, we know that she will make for good TV. I mean…did you really believe that American Idol was all about talent???? Hahaha!!!!
