    No official word or confirmation but if it’s true the show will crash and burn before mid-season. Who the heck would care what this trashy ugly woman has to say. She’s vulgar and has no class. She just told her own fans off by cursing and telling them to go kill themselves. Well if this is caliber of judge that AI wants then it says a lot about the direction the show is taking. The show has been declining since after S8 when there was real talent now this. Dear Lord..

    American Idol put the NAIL IN THEIR OWN COFFIN!! The MOST ridiculous choice on the planet! For the producers to even consider Nicki to JUDGE Idol after the years of horrible judging with Jlo and Steven and Randy..
    You would think they have a clean slate to bring in TALENTED judges who have incredible VOICES and stage pressence Themselves….that respect the true meaning of REAL..NON AUTO-TUNED Powerful, Pitch on, Full Range Voices and will give un-biased, honest, helpful critique..which is what American Idol was founded on..TO FIND THE BEST SINGER..FULL PACKAGE WORLDWIDE STAR!

    What this proves loud and clear is America PROMOTES and Radio Spins Auto-tuned, Factory created Talentless garbage over and over again…who could never stand up on the IDOL stage themselves and Sing flawlessly. EVERY Artist that has non stop Radio Spins were beyond HORRIBLE when they sang LIVE ON IDOL..Without their Auto-tune.
    A real “SINGER” can stand Alone~no music~SING AND DROP YOUR JAW~AND BLOW YOUR MIND~or they shouldn’t be behind a mic!!

    Huge, huge mistake!!! Just cancel the show now. She has no real talent, she’s unstable and certainly does not have the musical experience or longevity to serve as a judge or mentor. What fans would this imposter bring anyways….???

    Consuming dairy before bed causes unless also and say of you sleepless snore, snoring the nose before you go to bed. Cigarette smoking on the other hand causes bulkier the sleep-disordered breathing that’s diagnosed. snoring remedies ——————–

    When has Nicki Minaj ever proven herself to be anything but a no talent *****? And she just keeps throwing herself under the bus with her latest ignorant tirade against legendary, Steven Tyler. Compared to the other judges, she is seriously lacking in everything from experience to class. Families watch this show together and most families don’t want to listen to some *nobody* judge others or the rude, thuggish comments that will definitely fly out of her mouth before her brain has time to catch up.

    Simon could be a ***** too, but at least he was classy while doing it.
