American Idol was a landmark entertainment show that helped to launch a lot of other singing talent shows. Twelve years later, the show that started it all is shaking things up at the judges table again! There have been countless rumors as to who will join the judges table, but on Sunday, all suspicions were confirmed by Ryan Seacrest.
Ryan Seacrest tweeted, “It’s official, your new #IdolJudges are @MariahCarey, @NickiMinaj, @KeithUrban& @Yo_RandyJackson!”
Along with the tweet, Seacrest included a photo of the new judges. This new change comes after Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez were dropped from the show.
This cast has the potential to bring back the ratings for American Idol. Although it is doing well for being on the air for so long, ratings aren’t as high as they once were. There was a time when the singing show dominated the ratings and was untouchable. Of course, as new shows have been introduced to the airwaves, viewers have strayed away.
With his country background, Keith Urban will be able to bring a new twist to the judging table. Will big personality Nicki Minaj be able to pull in the ratings? What about Mariah Carey with her huge voice?
