Nicki Minaj & Keith Urban Join Mariah on ‘American Idol’

Nicki Minaj American Idol Season 12 judge panel

The American Idol Season 12 judge panel is finally finalized:

Hip-hop diva cartoon Nicki Minaj and country crooner superstar Keith Urban will join bigger-than-Elvis Mariah Carey and why-is-this-guy-here Randy Jackson — who hangs on by the skin of his teeth after reports he was done.

Idol, the once wildly popular amateur-talent showcase, is sucking wind. Season 11 ratings plunged 30 percent.

Fox is gambling that the chart-topping 25-year-old Minaj will bring younger fans to Idol, while having Urban on the ticket will deliver the Red States.

Mariah’s also new this year. Fox is shelling out $18 million for the woman with more No. 1 singles than Elvis.
