Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey Appear in ‘American Idol’ Promo

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

Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey are putting their differences aside and teaming up to find the next superstar. The dueling divas appear in the first promo for the new season of “American Idol.” The 30-second trailer includes brief clips of them at the judges’ table with fellow judges Randy Jackson and Keith Urban.

“My hair is edible,” a pink-haired Nicki is heard saying.

The 12th season of the singing competition kicks off January 16 on FOX.

    @Trev, Mariah is has been doing good in the 2000′s too not so much right now but she has had three number one singles in the 2000′s so she’s doing something right and she’s one of the best selling artists of all time.

    @Trev, and how the hell do u know that?? Do u have a clue how to become a star?? And if ur saying Nicki is the only one who knows how to become a star then ur quite wrong…she got her stardom from all her gimmicks, not from an “amazing voice”…that’s why people don’t feel that Nicki should judge b/c how can she give valid advice about the contestant’s vocal abilities, range, and precision when she cannot sing and probably doesn’t even know the vocabulary a true vocalist uses…

    smh

    @Trev, if Mariah wanted 2become a star in the current time, she sure would. Mariah making hits is sOo easy like “1+1=2″ she is just more focus on her family than her career right now! And Nicki don’t belong there, she should go judge at a rap contest cOz she surely doesn’t know how to sing (:** thnk u

    @American idol is a singing competition, so naturally Mariah would be the obvious choice. Even if it were a rap competition I wouldn’t necessarily think Nicki was the best choice for a judge. When I think of a judge I think of someone who knows the business, has been successful, and has had a long career in the respective energy. Lets just be honest, they did not chose nicki because she’s popular and has a lot of fans. At the end of the day whether you like her or not there is no ones career whether that has matched MC’s success commercially or financially considering all she’s ever done is sing and write songs.

    @Speechless, Britney and Nicki are two different people. Ms. Minaj’s fans will be watching and the ratings will do great.

    @Bougie Kid, Well, Nicki fans should start off by watching her reality show My Truth because it premiered with just 700K viewers and the second show declined to 540K viewers. Ice Loves Coco rates higher than My Truth. So, where are Nicki’s fans?

    @Leona,

    Forget about My Truth, what about how bad PFRR did. Where was her fans when she really needed them.

    Say whatever you want about Nicki, but just understand Nicki is going one of the most successful artist that hip-hop has produced! People don’t understand that Nicki has acomplished what most rappers out now, will never ever accomplish..

    Nicki is only getting bigger & better I see her becoming a legend..

    @Tim, I agree that she is big in hip-hop because you can’t denie that she can rap but her biggest hits are the songs that are more pop like “Starships” and “Super Bass”.

    Love Mariah Carey she’s a legend but the main reason im tuning in is because of Nicki Minaj. And of course they are going to be in the same commercial the media just like to keep shit going. Nicki & Mariah squashed it.

  12. Cara

    All these people rush to RapUp just to post a negative comment about Nicki. Little do they know they are the reason why she always has the “Most Read Stories”. Love Mariah, dont really listen to Nicki but I respect her for holding it down for the females.
