American Idol Producers 'Support' Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey

| Filed under: TV NewsMariah CareyAmerican IdolNicki MinajCeeLo Green


The producers of American Idol are in LOVE with their new judges!

Who would blame them??

Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj screaming, tweeting and finger pointing has gotten the show TONZ of free publicity! Plus, we're sure the gals have given them PLENTY of drama to build the show around.

So, to assure fans that neither Mimi or the wigged Barby are getting booted from the judges' table any time soon the producers sent out a joint statement Friday, saying:

"This is one of the best, most passionate, dynamic and invested judging panels we've ever had. We love and support all of the judges and the fantastic work they are doing, and we can't imagine a better group to find the next American Idol."

They claim that the ladies love each other too, accusing the media of blowing this feud out of proportion. The statement says:

"Despite all the accusations and media speculation—much of which is inaccurate—production is going extremely well today and the judges are focused on finding the best talent here in Baton Rouge."

That means all those "inside sources" talking about backstage arguments and the nasty Tweets from Nicki herself are all just a bunch of BS??

Somehow we don't think so….

Unless they're ARE just doing it for the attention, as Cee-Lo Green predicted!

    How much do you get paid to post this crap? I just came from a LARGE group of friends and they all said they won't watch this crap anymore. Of course the producers stand behind them — what else are they to do. The show sucks now, and they blew it trying to gain ratings. It made more people walk away then put up with the BULLSHIT.

    I do not understand why the producers would even think of Nicki Minaj as a judge as I see that since she lacks in musical talent as well as experience, she does not fit the role as one. To put it into simpler terms, how is she able to guide aspiring artist if she, too, hasn't gotten that far into the music industry yet.

    I really don't plan on watching AI anymore. I stopped watching it a few years ago. But did you ever think of bringing Paula back? I really like the show when she was on. I might have kept watching if would had stayed.

    Just end the show already!! So sick of watching these no talent judges decide who should go on to make even shittier albums than them and not make any difference in the music industry what so ever. I am, of course, excluding Steven Tyler from this rant.
