And NOT fresh as in they constantly get "fresh" with each other! LOLz!
Despite controversy, tension, and SUPER awkward auditions, Kelly Clarkson — the ORIGINAL American Idol — has given two Grammy-winning thumbs UP to the additions of Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban as the new American Idol judges!
The soon-to-be wife recently dished:
"The show needed to be freshened up a bit… I'm a huge Mariah Carey fan. If I had seen her as one of the judges when I was trying out, that would have been so cool."
Hmm, we wonder if Mariah would have given Kelly an initial, Hollywood "YES"?!
It's nice to hear SOME positive feedback concerning the new judges, as other former American Idol contestants — like Jennifer Hudson for example — haven't been as kind!
But whatever you may think about Nicki and Mariah's onscreen "banter," you can't deny it's intriguing to watch!
