That’s right, folks! All season long on American Idol, we watched Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey foam at the mouth, attack each other, and attempt to steal the spotlight from the contestants. That won’t be a problem next season, however, as we may be getting a whole new panel of judges – that is, if Country crooner Keith Urban does not return. Following the departure of Randy Jackson, both Minaj and Carey announced that they will not be returning to the show for season 13. Hooray!
Whew, we can all breathe a sigh of relief now – that we won’t have any endure any more of the ridiculous diva antics from Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey next season on American Idol. Both ladies took to Twitter yesterday to announce that they would not be returning to the popular singing show.
Carey was the first to reveal the news, as she re-posted a Tweet put up by her reps that said: “W/ global success of “#Beautiful” (#1 in 30+ countries so far) @MariahCarey confirms world tour & says goodbye 2 Idol.”
Soon after Mariah’s Tweet, Nicki Minaj took to the social media site to make her announcement as well. “Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world! Time to focus on the music! Mmmuuuaahhh,” Minaj Tweeted.
Ironically, right before the show’s finale this month, rumors were swirling around the web that all four judges were about to be fired. Randy Jackson announced before the finale that he would not be returning, after being the only original judge left on the panel.
Now, we can’t help but wonder if the rumors are true? We’re still waiting for any news from Keith Urban on his return.
Do you think Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj were fired? Are you glad to see them go? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it. Comment below to share your thoughts with us!
