Nicki Minaj And Mariah Carey Fired!

June 09, 2013 08:00 AM by Lisa Princ

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!

    I love them both but Mariah Carey does not know how to give constructive criticism. Nicki Minaj was a good judge but watching them both fight was unprofessional. Hopefully they can get back to their music and be happy.

    Mariah is too big of a name for the show. I’m glad she quit & i don’t think she’s fired. Give the post to those DIVA wannabes. She can now focus on her music and world tour concert. Make more music Mariah, I love you so much.

    Nicki was too provocative during the ended season. Had she didn’t act that way, there could have been a better way of argument. Although she had some good points, not all seemed good, the manner of her expression is seriously unethical. I go for Carey’s. I think Carey is way up high over! P.S. We all have different views. I would just like to express myself. :)

    I think Nicki was the best judge this season and Mariah was useless. I respect Mariah’s music career but not her as a person. Nicki might not be as successful as Mariah, but she is a rapper remember. The most successful female rapper ever ;-). Love Nicki and Mariah though, well Mariah’s music. Lol

    Nicki has been the best judge since Simon. Mariah is useless and flopped.

    These ladies distracted from the purpose of the show which is a contest for singers.
    Let Keith, the country expert come back. Add two judges who lean to pop and rock experience.
    Give the singers more song choices. Make voting more meaningful.
    Then maybe Idol will regain viewers.

    Mariah Carey was the best judge.

    At least those 2 were entertaining. Randy Jackson on the other hand, talk about a useless judge. 10 years of the same comments, hearing “dog” in every sentence, and flashing one of his satanic hand signs every 5 minutes. Ok, randy you love Satan, we get it!!
