Fox network announced that Nicki Minaj will join judge’s panel on “American Idol,” alongside Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban. Jackson is the only returning judge ater 12 seasons. Carey, Urban and Minaj will replace last season’s judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. The four judges, along with host Ryan Seacrest, joined for their first audition session Sunday in New York.
Minaj and Carey, according to TMZ reports, were catfighting:
As Minaj started to critique a contestant, she would reportedly be interrupted regularly by her pop diva rival during Sunday’s auditions in New York City.
That caused the 29-year-old rapper to keep talking louder and louder to drown out Carey, 42, according to the report.
