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