Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban as New American Idol Judges

Well, it’s OFFICIAL.

After all the speculation and buzz about who would be joining Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson at the judges’ table of American Idol, it was announced this past Sunday morning that it’s none other than rapper Nicki Minaj and Australian country star Keith Urban.

Seems like American Idol is trying to come correct like X-Factor did this current season with their two new judges… Can you blame them?  No.  Hype sells!

It will be interesting to see how an award-winning diva, successful music producer, hip hop’s hottest female artist, and talented country singer (whose married to one of Hollywood’s elite actresses) will all blend together collectively to coach America’s next singing sensation.

Of course joining the mix of diverse judges is host, Ryan Seacrest.

Season 12 of FOX’s American Idol will premiere January 2013.
