Soon as the news of Katy Perry rejecting the delicious $20 million offer to be the new Idol judge, the producer finally came to a close deal with another two biggest stars in the music industries to be the new Idol judges; Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban (Mariah Carey has confirmed much earlier). Ryan Seacrest tweeted the official news stating that Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban will be the new Idol judges and Nicki Minaj has already tweeted pictures of her on the last 2 days of American Idol auditioning.
Looks like the reality show nowadays is all about the judges and not the contestants. Since the X Factor USA has got Britney Spears on their show, a veteran show like American Idol need to cope with it and since Katy Perry is not interested, Nicki Minaj is close enough to bring stiff competition for rating of the show. The Voice has stolen much of Idol's rating and the competition got stiffer since X Factor USA has joined the game. Let's just see how it goes shall we?
P/s: Why the hell they didn't choose Rihanna instead?
