Next up, Nicki Minaj! This colorful female rapper is set to join the American Idol judges after Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez announced their departure from the ongoing show. This recent news might just be the end for what’s left of the American Idol fans. People are already commenting about her talentless abilities and how she’s too new to the music scene to be a part of such a competitive show.
Nicki Minaj first shot up into the spotlight after the release of her first album “Pink Friday” which debuted in November of 2010. Nicki Minaj has had many careers before she hit it big. Most of her jobs being focused towards customer service have ended up with her being fired because of her not so friendly behavior towards her customers.
It wasn’t until 2004 that she decided to attempt a music career by rapping in a group called “Hoodstars.” While she might not be a popular choice as a judge, her will to assert herself and voice her opinion won’t be missing. She’s a tough woman who isn’t afraid to speak her mind and that’s exactly what it takes to be a judge.
Since American Idol first appeared in 2002, it has become a dying sensation that many people have lost interest in mostly because their lack of creativity. The show is constantly the same year after year and the concept doesn’t draw viewers in like it used to. Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell, the original judging panel have all left and since then the judges have been dropping off one after another. Kara DioGuardi, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, and Steven Tyler all came to the rescue starting in 2009 and quickly left after their season was over.
Mariah Carey is up next along with the newly reported Nicki Minaj and talk of Kanye West joining the crew is being tossed up in the air. We’ll just have to wait and see what the future holds for American Idol.
