Nicki Minaj Joins ‘American Idol’ as Judge

Mariah Carey, Ryan Seacrest, Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj, and Keith Urban

It’s official. Nicki Minaj has joined the judges’ panel on “American Idol.”

Fox made the official announcement Sunday, confirming rumors just hours before the first round of auditions were to begin.

The “Starships” rapper will take a seat alongside previously announced judge Mariah Carey and returning judge Randy Jackson, while country superstar Keith Urban fills out the fourth chair.

“It’s official, your new #IdolJudges are @MariahCarey, @NickiMinaj, @KeithUrban & @Yo_RandyJackson!” tweeted “Idol” host Ryan Seacrest.

Nicki will be looking for “a superstar,” which is “something that can’t be defined in words.”

Meanwhile, Mariah is not sure what kind of judge she will be yet. “Am I the mean one? Am I the nice one? … It’s not about me, me, me, it’s about them [the contestants] and what I can bring to them to help guide them in the right direction,” she told the AP.

The new judges got to know one another at a dinner last night. “Everyone gave a heartfelt toast about being on the show after we ate last night. Cant wait to see the first contestants today,” said Seacrest.

Auditions begin today in New York, while the 12th season of “American Idol” premieres in January.

Are you excited to see Nicki Minaj on “Idol”? Let us know.

    @Kwayzee & @Zack: Simon & Randy are industry insiders. Simon is sitting on stacks of money due to him signing acts like El Divo & One Direction. Randy was/is a musician that has worked w/ Journey, Aerosmith & Mariah to name a few. So they have knowledge of the business. I can understand Mariah judging because she is a legend w/ a priceless voice, Keith has been extremely successful in his field of country for the past 10-12 years. I don’t understand signing Nicki … she is a caricature. No, she’s a joke! The only thing she can teach a contestant is how to dress up & look like you’re trick or treating EVERYDAY! I’ve never watched AI & definitely won’t be doing it now.

    @The Truth! Deal with it!!, Ms. Minaj is talented. Simple minded individuals such as your self fail to give artists a good listen. Y’all are quick to judge before trying to grasp an understanding of their craft. Smh!

    Tears Reply:

    @KaramelKisses, So unlike Randy, Nicki has NO knowledge of the business? You’re killing me. Just call it what it is, you don’t like Nicki, therefore you won’t give her anything. Like Randy, Nicki has worked w/ other musicians/artists. She knows what it takes to make it in the industry, she’s an undeniable star w/ a slew of fans. Not to mention, she knows what it’s like being in a competitive, creative institution having graduated from one of the most renowned preforming arts school – Laguardia. Besides this though, explain Ellen as a judge. Or are you going to tell me her comedic shtick provided vast musical knowledge? Or that Paula’s knowledge in dance provided great vocal endurance? BYE lol.

    @KaramelKisses, So you guys come on artist post to talk down on their music and when their fans ask you to stop and keep the negativity to yourselves you guys b*tc# and try to tear down fans for defending their artist. I learned that only weak minded people put down others to big themselves up. He without sin shall cast the first stone, so ya’ll look in the mirror and double check your appearance. and If these kids are not such a threat to you guys why scoop down to their levels if they are kids. Only two type of people have the right to say whatever they want and they are the elderly and children because they don’t know better. So why are so called adults arguing with so called kids?

    @AllAmerykhanBoy, Just to let you know the Constitution guarantees me the right to say what I want when I want. You and everyone else do NOT have to agree, that’s your right. My point was these “fans” don’t have to insult people because they don’t agree w/ their opinion. MY OPINION IS THAT NICKI IS NOT TALENTED, SHE IS NOT ORIGINAL, SHE IS MEDIOCRE AT BEST! You come on the post preaching, equipped w/ a scripture but then call me weak minded. Perhaps you should get off MY dick & mind YOUR business because I was interacting w/ someone else until you decided to put your two cents in. Thank you, that is ALL!

    Free Your Mind Reply:

    @ervingeoffrey, You’re so right, that’s all she cares about ‘Money & Winning’ which is her untimely mistake if she wants to last in this industry! In order for artist(s) to last in this industry, they must ensure that their fans know the artist(s) cares more about them & the music than the benefits which comes along! In Nicki’s case, she proves over and over in her lyrics what she allegedly have, self-proclaim as the Queen, & that having money in the bank so she can retire early as she stated to ‘TraceTV’ is her ultimate goal! This is why Lil Kim was accurate when saying she’s a burning match!

    Free Your Mind Reply:

    @Free Your Mind, Notice Rihanna turned this down quickly because when you take on something like this, in the eyes of the public, you’re done (overexposed/overrated/financially unstable) like J.LO with A.I., Britney Spears with X-Factor, Lil Mama with ABDC! After those seasonal appearances, their artistry fades because the perception that’s given off is that they’re use to them as judges, they’ve already made it, trying to be relevant or remain relevant (in Nicki’s case) & that their music is no longer selling (interested) so they decide to take it to a outlet with a wider audience scale to see if that works. Last i check Nicki doesn’t have a Grammy so….!

When America doesn’t like Nicki’s critique to one of the contestants then the hate begins which at this point isn’t what she needs since she was just embarrassed for the pic she had up on twitter which was Beyonce’s pic, starting a beef with Rihanna because of the Chris & drake inccident which doesn’t concern her (wrong mistake), & now this judging! For y’all sake i hope that i’m wrong cause if i’m not well…!

I haven’t heard of a charity that she has donated money to, her lyrics on her new LP is more overly confident basically arrogant on the hip-hop side of it, & then she feels the need to tell us constantly what she allegedly has (first time shame on us, second time, shame on her). I wondered what happened to the rapper that initially cared about fighting for others to due what she does like on ‘I’m the Best’ or ‘Fly’ now its “suck a big dig if she’s not your leader, she beez in the trap, strangely mentioning that starships fly”.

    If nicki really cared about what people think she would address them like recently with her verse in mercy she spoke on it but waited she is smart she knew the backlash would come but didn’t care obviously or she would have spoke about it sooner she is talented and wants to take her career somewhere beyond just rap if you haven’t noticed by now. She cares about her fans she gives them nicknames recognizing them in public etc talks them on twitter,ustream…you know nothing about her or her future plans so stop being pressed – Spacebar

    You people are so dumb I swear. American Idol isn’t all about singing, it’s about who can make it as an IDOL in America. Clay Aiken can sing, but where’s he now? #FLOP I.E Kelly Clarkson made it as an idol because she can connect with her fans and been building her image but she’s not the greatest singer.

    The judges aren’t all about singing, they’re about seeing who has potential to make money and appeal to a national audience… Who’s gonna be the next star.

    Half of y’all sound dumb as shit. Going hard AF for Nicki…she don’t know yall and she don’t give a fuck about yall…she’s only after your GREEN! Meanwhile, y’all can’t even feed your babies or pay your child support and are struggling to make ends meet.

    One of the greatest voices in pop history sitting next to someone who can’t even sing their choruses on key.

    @DRB, Simon has finally gone off the deep end. He needs to worry about why The Voice is enticing more voters instead of X Factor. Idol was dead the moment he left and uprooted Paula with him.

    You know what’s so funny? American Idol recruited Nicki for ratings & Nicki went along because of the money & more exposure/publicity which was my point all along!

    Q: To you Nicki stand, how does being a guests/seasonal judge on A.I. shows she’s caring about you all?

    When you can give me a plausible response, then i’ll admit defeat other than that i guess i’m right?!

    I dont understand why nick took the judging spot um mean she’s only been out for 3 yrs personally she could make more money touring all year ,but she just wants to b everywhere;I guess what she was she was doing before didnt make her enough nd u would think all she did she would have enough to keep a low profile until a year or 2 for nxt album. Nope! how bout another album in november, overkill much?

    I’m so excited that Nicki is joining the show! When my Dish coworker first told me about the rumors, I totally thought he was joking around since everyone knows how much I love Nicki! My boyfriend is going to be less than enthused, but he doesn’t realize how talented she is. At least we upgraded our DVR to the Hopper, which has three separate tuners, so he can leave me to watch my Nicki while he watches whatever he wants. I’ve never thought I’d hear myself saying that I’m excited for American Idol!

    Probably no one will read this comment, Nicki will never see it, but I just gotta say this.. Even how mad in love I’m with Nicki, since she started until now, and forever, I don’t feel she’s ready for be a judge yet.. Of course I will love to see her every week, but for me, she has a lot way to go yet
