Ryan Seacrest announced the official list of judges for the 12th season of ‘American Idol’ by posting a photo on Twitter! See the pic and find out all the details!

It’s official — Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson will be the judges on season 12 of American Idol!

Mariah was the first to sign her deal, with Nicki and Keith signing on in the last few days. Randy was brought back after alleged talks with Enrique Iglesias fizzled out.

“It’s official, your new #IdolJudges are@MariahCarey@NickiMinaj@KeithUrban @Yo_RandyJackson!” Ryan Seacrest tweeted on Sept. 16.

“With the exciting addition of Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj, alongside Randy Jackson, American Idol’s star power has never been so great,” executive producer Simon Fuller told Us Weekly. “For this we have to thank the ongoing commitment and belief of FOX and the dedication and focus of the Idol production team. We have all been together since the very beginning and we are focused on making Idol Season 12 the best ever.”

What do YOU think of the judges for season 12, HollywoodLifers?

No to the Divas!! Won’t watch if they are back next season. Yes to down to earth Keith. I stay in constant fear the DIVAs are going to mess their makeup. Where did you go J-Lo?

Nicki looks like she will be a lot of fun to watch! I’m definitely going to record the show to see if I’m right. If it does turn out to be the disaster that all the comments seem to be predicting, it’s really no skin off my back, since the recordings will barely make a dent on the huge memory space of my Hopper DVR. I would bet money that she will be more entertaining than J.Lo though! One thing that I don’t get is how the show works with four judges. I was just talking about this with my officemate at Dish, and we can’t understand what happens when they need a tie-breaker. Does anyone know?!
