This season on American Idol, all eyes are not only on the hopefuls auditioning, but also on the new panel of judges. As we have been slowly watching the drama unfold between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon feels that Mariah is doing a wonderful job on the panel. In fact, the America’s Got Talent host recently gushed that “Everyone is falling in love Mariah Carey” as they watch her on Idol.
Okay, so we knew that Nick Cannon would gush about Mariah Carey’s performance on Idol, as he told MTV News recently: “I think the world gets a chance to see another side of Mariah, and everyone’s falling in love with her.” But, there is a reason (aside from being married to her) that the America’s Got Talent host feels this way, as he continued: “I looked at Twitter, Facebook, when I see all the write ups — because now they’re judging the judges — they gave her an A all across the board.”
As for the drama that has been unfolding between Carey and fellow judge, Nicki Minaj, Cannon said: “Obviously they play up the drama, but then to see everybody is really sincere — especially Mariah, she comes off so like able — it’s awesome,” adding: “People got to see how knowledgeable she is as a musician and a singer, and she’s so charismatic and the most nurturing person I know, so it’s cool.”
Meanwhile, most folks seem to be split on Nicki Minaj – they either love her or hate her, with some referring to her as “an acquired taste.”
