Remember earlier this month when Nicki Minaj went OFF on fellow American Idol judge Mariah Carey on Twitter in the wake of the big dust up they had while filming AI auditions a couple of days before? Well, the day of that Twitter blow-up, all of the Idol judges had to get together for a promo photo shoot … and today we get to see the end result. As you can see below, all of the AI judges are flanking host Ryan Seacrest and they all look happy as can be … which means either all of the judges are consummate professionals who can put aside their personal feelings for their collective professional good … OR, each person was photographed separately and were Photoshopped together in the photo. HMMMM. Take a look below and YOU decide.
Featuring host Ryan Seacrest and new judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, along with returning judge Randy Jackson, Season 12 of American Idol begins with the exciting two-night premiere Wednesday, Jan.16 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Thursday, Jan. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
I dunno … if you ask me, they all looked Photoshopped together :) Not a bad idea if the ladies were in the midst of a heated feud. As you can see above, the 12th season of American Idol will debut on Fox on January 16 … so mark your calendars. In addition to this new promo photo, AI has also released its first promo video for the new season:
And there you have it! A new promo photo, a new promo video and a premiere date. Are you ready for the new American Idol?
