Rapper/singer/songwriter/eccentric Nicki Minaj is officially the latest celebrity to join American Idol. The show’s twelfth season will feature Minaj in the judge's seat alongside fellow newcomer Mariah Carey.

Minaj and Carey will replace Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler who have both officially left the series after two seasons. Rumors are still flying about another musical judge coming onboard, potentially Keith Urban, Enrique Iglesisas or one of the Jonas Brothers.
