Fox has announced that Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban will be joining Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson at the American Idol judges' table this season.
"It's really an honor to have been invited to be a part of the American Idol family," Urban said in a statement. "I'm looking forward to working with everyone and to seeing the same passion that I have for music in all of the participants."
Host Ryan Seacrest tweeted the photo below and wrote, "It's official, your new #IdolJudges are @MariahCarey, @NickiMinaj, @KeithUrban & @Yo_RandyJackson!"
After the departure of judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler earlier this year, it was announced in July that Carey would join the show, earning a whopping $18 million for the season. No word yet on what Urban and Minaj will be paid, but we'll let you know as soon as we find out!
