Here they are, America! Your new judges for the magical singing competition... American Idol! Deadline posted the image this afternoon of the newly-announced judges waiting and ready to hear you shine with your dulcet tones. Check out the image below of Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, and the sole returning judge, Randy Jackson with spritely, magical wood nymph-turned-host Ryan Seacrest.
The photo is the first visual confirmation of the news about the judges, as AI decided to go the route of The X-Factor last year, and wait to announce their judges until right before the first judges' audition rounds episode. All smiles from the clan who can be sign perched high above Columbus Circle in New York City.
What do you think about the new judges? Sound off in the comments!
