Despite the name-calling caught on tape earlier this week between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on "American Idol," producers insist they are happy with the judges' panel and that production is going well.
According to a statement released Friday (October 5) by the producers, "This is one of the best, most passionate, dynamic and invested judging panels we've ever had. We love and support all of the judges and the fantastic work they are doing, and we can't imagine a better group to find the next American Idol."
He was the unfortunate lad caught between two warring women on Tuesday night’s “American Idol” auditions, and now Keith Urban is sharing his perspective on the whole Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj debacle.
The “Days Go By” country crooner noted that he felt like “The UN,” with wife Nicole Kidman clarifying, “He was Switzerland,” during an interview at the NY Film Festival.
During his KIIS FM radio show, the handsome host explained, "These are all very different individuals with different perspectives and different opinions that provide for interesting conversation and dialogue and feedback for the contestants."
Taking care of some promotional duties, Nicki Minaj hit the streets in New York City earlier today (September 24).
Sporting a hot pink hat and matching jacket with blue and white trousers, the “Super Bass” babe paid a visit to “The View” as well as Hot 97 Radio Studios to talk about the upcoming season of “American Idol.”
