‘American Idol’ Has Their Four Judges!

nicki making a funny faceIt’s official! After months and months of constant back and forth, American Idol Season 12 is going to have 3 new judges! Mariah Carrey, Niki Minaj and Keith Urban have all signed up and are ready to go as the ‘Idol’ phoenomon can commence. As reported earlier, Randy Jackson is going to make it a foursome as it was with Season 8 when songwriter Kara DioGuardi joined Simon, Paula and Randy on the judging panel. Producers and viewers felt that the show moved too slowly with four judges. However, they seem to have changed their mind as there will be four judges in the upcoming season.

As reported on Daily Bubble, Enrique Inglesias was to fill Randy’s seat, but when plans when South, the “Dawg” was put back in his seat as a judge rather than a mentor. Was this a ploy to replace Jimmy Iovine, the music producer from the last 3 seasons who have mentored the contestants while bringing on guest mentors? No word on whether Jimmy will be back to give his honest opinion of what he feels the singer can work on.

The news comes as a relief to a lot of people for many reasons. The main reason is that ‘Idol’ is to be holding auditions rather quickly and you can’t really be on schedule if you don’t have a full staff. Some have already taken to social media outlets to express their joy and frustration. Many feel that Keith Urban won’t be able to hold up to what the others have in terms of successful business. Guess having multiple CMA awards in nothing to many.

It is going to be interesting to see what the chemistry is going to be like between two Pop Divas like Mariah and Nicki. Mariah has already all judges for season 12announced her disgust with Nicki Minaj in public and it is going to be a cat fight if they are going to be sitting next to one another. The only judge besides Randy to have some judging experience in these types of show is Urban, who has finished on season of “The Voice” in Australia along side Seal, Delta Goodrem and Joel Madden. Urban’s artist, Darren Percival came in 2nd to Seal’s artist Karise Eden.

What do you think of the judging panel this coming season of ‘American Idol’? Do you think that they are going to run into the same problem they did in Season 8 with the long comments with the judges. Will Mariah and Nicki get into a fight? American Idol is set to premiere in January 2013.
