More New American Idol 12 Promos! Nicki Vs Mariah! (VIDEO)

Check out some brand new American Idol 12 promos!

The first aired during the X Factor results show on Thursday. Only featuring a bit of footage from Idol auditions near the end, the promo is comprised of mostly actors portraying would-be Idols engaged in typical American day jobs.

The judges, Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban remind the viewer that “American Idol can make your dreams come true.”

The second is an Australian promo which, interestingly, plays up the Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey feud. I will be really surprised if American promos even go there. But you never know.

    Besides all the judge drama, here’s to hoping this panel brings in a new fresh batch of contestants. No more WGWG pleasee! ;)

    Honestly, their “fighting” doesn’t look any worse than what Simon and Paula used to do.

    Heh. Jon Glass, you don’t expect a lot from TPTB – how much of their core audience do you expect them to dump – all the people who like ‘any’ form of rock, or pop/rock? Perhaps you mean no more White Guys, period – the only exceptions – maybe – unless they sing Dance/Pop, R&B, Country, or Rap – maybe a little Blue-eyed Soul, maybe not?
    And the guitar isn’t necessary to make an impression, ya know? No guitar was used for these: “Living on a Prayer”, AKA “Prayer 94”, “Happy Together”, “Eleanor Rigby”, “Billie Jean”, “Always Be My Baby”, “Music of the Night”, “First Time Ever I saw Your Face”, “Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”, among others.

    So even if every male who knew how to play a guitar was disallowed, whether they played it or not – I don’t think it would help your cause…of course, TPTB ‘could’ cast White Guys who only play piano, or can’t carry a tune in a bucket – but that may not work either…*wink* Besides being a trifle obvious. Or, what if someone in Bandzilla was playing a guitar accompaniment, not the contestant – ought that to be discriminated against too? smh.

    When they start drawing on each other’s faces w/crayons instead of paying any attention to the contestants, or any of the other nonsense Cowell pulled on Paula when he got bored, then we can start to worry, I think.

    I hope this feuding thing won’t be manipulated and scripted!  It can get old really fast.  High quality contestants = more chance of success!

    “..of course, TPTB ‘could’ cast White Guys who only play piano, or can’t carry a tune in a bucket-”

    Hasn’t that ship sailed already? ;)

    Heh. Didn’t work. Twice. TPTB didn’t offer their core audience alternative cast members that they wanted to vote for – or they let the judges trash the alternatives they did have… just can’t seem to get the casting thing right.

    Good luck this season. IMO.
