Our fluttering butterfly queen might just have to bite the bullet ALONE unless the American Idol execs make some speedy decisions…
'Cause the first round of AI on-air auditions are happening in two weeks, yet Mariah Carey is STILL the only confirmed judge for the upcoming season!
Even though American Idol teased some concrete deals come Labor Day, it seems negotiations are still being smoothed out between Nicki Minaj's camp and the AI heads, AND potential judge Keith Urban is apparently hesitant to sign on the musical line!
Combine that with good ol' standby Randy Jackson's move to a more nurturing role as mentor, and the fact that those in charge are looking to add another judging seat, you've basically got a flan in an overly heated oven that's on the verge of collapsing!
Now we totally believe that our Fantasy lady is more than capable to weed out potential Idol's all on her lonesome, but we just can't believe the rest of Amurrica would agree… HA!
Also that really wouldn't be fair…
SO GET IT TOGETHER AI GUYS! You're running the risk of people getting bored with your wishy washy antics!
