Remember when we asked y’all who you’d love to see replace J.Lo and Steven Tyler as judges on American Idol? Well, folks, the official replacements have been announced! The next season of American Idol will have rapper Nicki Minaj and country crooner Keith Urban as judges, joining Mariah Carey and veteran judge Randy Jackson with host Ryan Seacrest. We think that four judges is now the new standard for reality TV talent shows — just look at The Voice and The X Factor! Plus, the addition of Nicki and Keith bring new music aspects to the judging panel.
Are you disappointed your pick for the next judge didn’t make the cut? Let us know if you like the new judges or would have preferred someone else!
