Now that the judges have been officially selected for American Idol, sounds like Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are going to bring plenty of drama to the Fox show.
When asked about the reported drama between the two divas, Idol host Ryan Seacrest told the Today Show:
- "Nicki and Mariah, two very different, strong, powerful successful women on the panel -- there are not too many dull moments between the two of them. But at the end of the day, we all hug and laugh and go home and get ready for another day."
Also joining the judging panel for AI ... country superstar Keith Urban and longtime Idol judge Randy Jackson.
Mariah scored a reported $18 million, Nicki will make $12 million and Keith will earn $4 million.
Seacrest added, "They get along fine but they're strong and candid in their opinion."
Auditions begin next Sunday in New York.
