Worst kept secret ever, or maybe it’s because no one cares anymore, but American Idol now has their four judges.
No surprise here, they officially signed on Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban. They will join the judges panel alongside Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson, who’s either still a judge out of pity or because they couldn’t find someone else to do it.
Mariah is the big catch, she’s getting $18mil for her part. Nicki’s pulling in $12mil, Keith’s getting $6mil and no word on what the dog is getting to say “Yo dawg.”
The president of Fox released a statement, saying, “Nicki’s an unbelievably captivating international phenomenon who has made an indelible mark on rap and pop. And Keith is another great addition to Idol – he’s one of the biggest stars in country music and I know that our fans and contestants will fall in love with him. With an unparalleled star like Mariah, fan-favorite Randy, chart-toppers like Nicki and Keith and our incomparable host Ryan [Seacrest], we’ve put together one of the most exciting judging panels around.”
