Nigel Lythgoe announced on Twitter today that joining Mariah Carey as a judge on American Idol are Nicki Minaj (worst kept secret, really) and Keith Urban. We first reported the possibility of Nicki and Keith joining the show in August and while they will make a great addition (especially because we can expect some very diva-like behavior by the two ladies, and Keith is hot), our first pick was Adam Lambert.
They replace former judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. Randy Jackson is staying which is great, dawg.
Thanks for the heads up E!!
