Country singer Keith Urban and rapper Nicki Minaj will be joining Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson at the judges table. The foursome are already hard at work with day 1 of auditons for season 12 having kicked off today in New York. Urban tweeted Sunday morning; “SO excited to be joining the team on ?@AmericanIdol!!!!!! -KU ?#idoljudges.” The rumors that Urban would be joining Idol went into overdrive when the news was announced that he would be stepping down from his judging spot on the Australian version of The Voice. And as for Minaj, rumors of her locked in judging spot continued on despite not having made up her mind when being interviewed at the MTV Video Music Awards.
