American Idol producers have sealed the deal with Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, who will join Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson (who was rumored to not be returning) as judges.
The people behind this are EXTREMELY excited. Possibly more excited than longtime viewers.
Mike Darnell called the grouping “one of the most exciting judging panels around,” while Simon Fuller used the word “dynamic” to describe season 12.
Whoa whoa whoa. Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj – good. Keith Urban and Randy Jackson – so boring.
