New American Idol Promo Feat. Nicki Minaj (VIDEO)

The first American Idol 12 promo devoted to a specific judge is all about Nicki Minaj. Do you think Mariah Carey is pissed off that she’s not the center of attention? Ha.

In the new spot, Nicki is portrayed as the gal who says EXACTLY what’s on her mind, but with a dash of kooky for extra fun.

We’ll see how Nicki fares when the new season of American Idol begins on January 16.

    Idol still knows how to highlight the judges better than the other shows. I found myself excited to see Nicki and the contestants she was saying yes or no to. 

  • lovesickheroine

    Looking forward to see Nicki and the other judges. I don’t usually watch the idol auditions and Hollywood week but this time maybe i will 

  • fuzzywuzzy

  • jcabby

    She’s hilarious. I can’t wait for Idol!

    “Obviously I’m not judging you because of your hair.” Literally LOL.

    It seems Nicki may not care if the audience boos her.  So, maybe she will be honest and funny?  I just don’t want any brashness and foul mouth.  Then again, that’s me.  They did a pretty good job on the promo – now let’s see the rest.

    Oh wait…no need to see Randy unless he’s changed.

    After watching this video and Keith Urban’s tour promo (where he’s singing in the car), I think that Nicki and Keith will be pretty hilarious together!
