After many months of rumors and speculation, American Idol has found their new judges for season 12! Ryan Seacrest made the announcement on his Twitter page yesterday: “It’s official, your new #IdolJudges are @MariahCarey, @NickiMinaj, @KeithUrban & @Yo_RandyJackson! Everyone gave a heartfelt toast about being on the show after we ate last night. Cant wait to see the first contestants today. #IdolJudges.”
Apparently, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban have taken their seats in the nick of time as the show is about to kick off the live auditions in New York. Keith Urban shared his excitement on Twitter: “SO excited to be joining the team on @AmericanIdol!!!!!! -KU” Meanwhile Nicki Minaj has remained mum on the subject, but we’re sure she is just as excited.
Nicki and Keith will be joining Mariah Carey, who signed on for the new season, and the good ole “Dawg” aka Randy Jackson, who was recently rumored to be leaving, but instead will be sticking around.
