The official announcement about Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban joining American Idol just arrived yesterday. That means Nicki Minaj has made it an entire 24 hours without bringing her usual drama to the Idol judging panel! Unfortunately, the drama-free period appears to be over, for there can only be one diva ruling the roost on American Idol!
When rumors swirled surrounding Mariah Carey’s displeasure at having Nicki Minaj recruited for the American Idol judging panel, we knew it would only be so long before a full-on battle ensued. And that’s what Idol wants, right? When ratings sink, the best way to pick ‘em up is with a battle of the divas.
According to TMZ, Mariah and Nicki were already feuding on the first day of taping! One source explained that, while the two were mostly trying to keep things civil, it was clear to onlookers that, “these girls just don’t like each other.”
The bickering was supposedly initiated by Mariah, who would interrupt Nicki’s comments to provide her own critiques. Nicki would then retaliate by trying to talk over Mariah. The bickering quickly led to headaches for everyone unfortunate enough to be within earshot.
We won’t know for sure how this judging match-up pans out until the American Idol premiere airs. But we’re sure that the new judging panel will be an interesting one! And we won’t be surprised if FOX plays up the whole Mariah vs Nicki thing. After all, the network is desperate for ratings!
What do you think of the new judges? Do they spell American Idol’s doom? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
