If you ask the average onlooker, a catty feud is imminent among new American Idol judges, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. Most of the speculation is due to Carey’s outcry to hire Lenny Kravitz as an ‘Idol’ judge hours after reports surfaced claiming Minaj would be a judge. Of course the “Up Out My Face” divas denied rumors of any clash, but it will be interesting to see how the FOX/’Idol’ producers edit the film when the show premieres in the winter.
The auditions for American Idol Season 12 began in New York on September 16th. Expect the show pre-recorded auditions to premiere sometime in January 2013.
