Katie Couric Spills The Beans On American Idol Judges! Nicki Minaj & Keith Urban Locked In!

| Filed under: TV NewsMariah CareyAmerican IdolKatie CouricJennifer LopezKeith UrbanNicki Minaj

The official Idol lineup has been confirmed!! And guess who did the confirming - Katie Couric of all people.

Say what?!?!

Couric was in an interview with Jennifer Lopez when she asked her what she thought of the new judges. Lopez didn't know they had officially announced anything, yet. So Couric filled her in.

And according to her the three judges will be, drumroll please….

Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban, and Randy Jackson!!!

We remind you that FOX has NOT announced this officially, but this info is only directly from Couric's sweet loose lips.

Here's how their original exchange went down after Lopez asked Couric about judges were:

"Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy [Jackson]. Randy’s back."

Lopez subsequently said "Oh, thank god. I love Randy!"

We have a feeling that this IS the official lineup even though it isn't confirmed, and damn we're feeling quite frisky from all of the hot names on the list.

Has Idol reclaimed its throne???

This is definitely a promising start to keep the good vibes going!

    Great. One white guy on the show other than Seacrest. They may as well move the show to BET and get it over with. Minaj is an auto-tuned, talentless joke. Seems clear the Idol decision-makers have their heads up their asses.

    Yikes. I never thought I would think that Randy is my favourite judge. Minaj… No talent, no interest, circus clown…Mariah…Overpaid over the hill Diva…Urban…Can't name one of his songs, so no opinion.
    This is gonna suck.
    This might be the first year that I don't bother to watch until maybe the final 5. (if that)

    Re: Canada Guy – Look him up on you tube. He is fantastic. A great guitarist and entertainer. Why he isn't more popular outside of country I do not know. A lot of people who are big country fans do not like him cuz they say he isn't "real" country. He is the only country concert I have ever been to and it was flawless.
