Last Sunday saw the start of the new season of American Idol auditions as Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban join Randy Jackson on the judging panel. “What I want to be is honest and someone that the contestants can look to for guidance,” said Mariah Carey on the first day of auditions. Rapper Nicki Minaj says that it will be fun if people audition with her music and adds, “We’ll have fun, the Barbs are gonna be watching, it’s gon’ be poplin’.” Excited to have Mariah on the judging panel, Randy Jackson says, “I’m so excited she’s here, because I mean, more than half these girls that walk in want to be her.” Hoping that his judging skills will be authentic, country singer Keith Urban mentioned that he had entered a few similar shows to this when he was young in Australia, and recalls being torn apart by a judge and hopes not to be that kind of a judge but “I think we also need to know really truthfully what we’re doing right and wrong,” said Urban. “I’m excited that we’ve all gotten together, that we’ve gotten everyone to say yes they’ve onboard. We’re of to a good start,” added show presenter, Ryan Seacrest.
