Nicki Minaj & Keith Urban Officially Join American Idol As Judges

For American Idol’s 12th season, Fox has officially announced Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban as judges for the singing competition. More after the jump.

They will be sitting at the judges’ table alongside Mariah Carey and formerly out but now back in judge Randy Jackson. Minaj’s role on the show has long been rumored, with multiple seats opening on the panel this year after two-season judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler both left the show.

There was previous speculation that Urban could be named a judge, although Kanye West, Diddy, Nick Jonas, Pharrell Williams and Enrique Iglesias were also reportedly under consideration.

“With the exciting addition of Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj, alongside Randy Jackson, ‘American Idol’s’ star power has never been so great,” executive producer Simon Fuller said in a press release.

Earlier this month, country star Urban spoke at Metro Nashville Public School program, and addressed the American Idol rumors. “I would love to do it and hopefully that happens,” he said. “I did get to do a similar role in Australia for ‘The Voice,’ and I really enjoyed it. The thing about those shows is that mentoring aspect… it’s about passing it on.”

The announcement was made at the last possible moment, as all four judges will be filming the show’s first auditions today in New York City. Upcoming auditions, hosted by the show’s 12-season host Ryan Seacrest, will also be held in Los Angeles, Chicago, Charlotte, San Antonio, Baton Rouge and Oklahoma City.

The series returns to Fox’s primetime schedule in January, after the network’s other singing competition series, Simon Cowell’s X Factor, wraps.
