Nicki Minaj was confirmed today by ‘American Idol‘ host Ryan Seacrest as the latest judge on the show’s panel. She will sit alongside Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson and judge the talent of the thousands of entrants, and will no doubt pull a series of hilarious facial expressions herself along the way!
Show boss Simon Fuller said in a statement: “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.” Nicki tweeted her excitement about her role today: “New York auditions today & tomorrow! See ya there barbz!
#AmericanIdol.” Very smart career move here Nicki.
