MC i get but that other one??? WTF i thought u had to know how to sing to be a judge on this show? Niki M is a joke to pop music or whatever her genre is. She doesnt even sing...A.I if u wanted to end your show with a bang, that will be the sound of ppls throwing their t.v's out the window....

Ew not Nikki Minaj. She has no talent what so ever. I do not blame Mariah for not wanting to sit next to her. I mean Nikki is a freaking joke, and Mariah would probably feel like a joke sitting next to her. I cant wait until Nikki Minajs 15 minutes of fame are over with. I cant stand that plastic h0.

They put this C U N T on last season to promote her... cough cough new single, it was so ill received, people complained about the bump and grind and inappropriateness of her 3 minutes. They are committing suicide. The show is past it's due date.

There should not be a Minja she can't even sing Mariah should break the contract because they didn't warn her beforehand. Mimi is a legend while Nicki is a gimmick.

Who cares if she is younger? What she should be concerned about is how they are bringing someone on who has absolutely no talent to judge people on a talent show! You would think that's a requirement these days to be able to judge those competing. They need to seriously pull the plug on this show and realize that those who win never amount to anything anyway unless they are the 8th contestant voted off. I mean come on now.

I don't blame Mariah for wanting to be the only female. It has always been that way. They need a white male to fill the other seat. Charlie Sheen.

Nikki is a silicone ass bozo the clown looking non talented nut case... who got to where she is by sleeping with the right people...what talent does she has besides multi personialites...she she think she is a barbie doll but look more like rainbow bright doll...this trick couldn't hit a note with her best hand.... so american idols has become american idiots of judges...bring back the old judges..Team Paula..or better yet if you gonna use stars bring bring in the former winner of idols to be judges.. like kelly clarkson, jennifer hudson, clay akiens even thought they didn't win..jordan sparks bout stevie wonder he don't need to see to hear good talent..Donald trump is even a good pick right about now..can't get any worth than what you have in the running for right now....I stop wacthing this bullcrap in the making a long time ago
