After much deliberation and contractual issues involving her deal with Pepsi and the American Idol sponsor Coca-Cola, Nicki Minaj has finally and officially signed a contract with the talent show to become a judge for the upcoming season, joining the likes of Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson, and Keith Urban. American Idol host Ryan Seacrest posted a picture on his Instagram of himself standing with Minaj, Jackson, and Carey, along with other Idol staff members with a caption that read:
"It's official, your new #IdolJudges are @MariahCarey, @NickiMinaj, @KeithUrban & @Yo_RandyJackson!"
This new season of American Idol should be really interesting. Let's see if Nicki will bring her multiple personalities with her to the judges' panel.
