The new season of American Idol kicked off this week with a two night premiere, where we not only got a glimpse of this season’s talent and lack of, but we also watched the debut of three new judges. With all the hype surrounding the dramatic new panel, we have to ask – which judge is the best this season?
This week brought the season 12 premiere of American Idol, in which all eyes were on the new judges: Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Keith Urban. With two divas on the show, it was no surprise that the claws already came out between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, while Keith Urban seemed to fall into the middle of the ruckus.
Nicki Minaj is getting mixed reviews on her debut, with some folks loving her “nurturing” side, while others were simply annoyed by eye rolling and how she tried to take charge of the panel. We’ve also noticed many negative comments here about Minaj’s debut this week.
Mariah Carey, on the other hand, did not seem to annoy viewers as much, but many fans are still on the fence about her on the panel. As for Keith Urban, well, he deserves a raise for having to sit in between the two of them. It definitely appears that both Randy Jackson and Keith Urban are focused on finding the talent, instead of the drama.
So, we want to know who your favorite new American Idol judge is and why. Do you think Nicki Minaj needs to go? Are you loving Mariah Carey? Or perhaps Keith Urban is more your style? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear from you. Comment below to share your thoughts with us!
