AI Judges Yet to Be Finalized; Stirs up Controversies

24 Aug

 

      As fate would have it, the final line-up of the judges for the incoming season of the American Idol would have to wait for some time more.

     Apparently, Mariah Carey, who was initially promised a spot in the final roster of judges for the new AI season judges, was apparently taken for a ride. Recent developments point out to pop sensation Nicki Minaj as a top celebrity candidate to make the cut.

     According to reports Carey was called by AI staff and was told that Minaj could probably get the slot initially offered to her. The songstress reportedly hung up her phone in a clear sign of dismay over the news

     Meanwhile, long-time AI judge and mainstay Randy Jackson’s fate is still yet to be confirmed. TMZ reported that whether or not Jackson will once more suit up to judge the show is still yet to be determined pending negotiations. However, the possible scenario could be that Jackson may not return to the show. In such case, this will surely open up a spot for other possible celebrity judges.

    According to reports, celebs who could possibly be tapped to do judging chores include heavyweights such as Enrique Iglesias, Brad Paisley, and Keith Urban. According to TMZ, there are two possibilities given the current scenarios: first, with Randy Jackson out, AI producers need to fill in his spot to have the required three. Second, to appease irritated Carey, AI staff needs to get her, too, together with Minaj.

Second, to appease irritated Carey, AI staff needs to get her, too, together with Minaj.

     According to the said proponents of the scenarios, two female judges and one male judge may not end out a truly sellable idea for AI viewers and critics. With this, the possibility of a fourth judge is not too far out in the horizon. Depending on who the fourth judge would be, it u either be boon or bane.

     With all these scenarios coming into play prior to the start of the new American Idol season, it would be very interesting to keep a close eye on future developments concerning the show. As they love to say: let’s cross the bridge when we get there.
