The long-awaited debut of the new American Idol judging panel was finally unleashed last night and Nicki Minaj has been praised for her role in the show. Nicki has been spoken highly of by a number of top publications and it appears that she is the star of the new judges.
Entertainment Weekly said, “Nicki had completely taken over the panel... Compared to the autopilot judging on The X Factor and even Idol last season, I am thrilled to have someone in the driver's seat.”
USA Today added, “Minaj has the potential to be the best judge Idol has seen since about two years before Simon Cowell jumped ship.”
While Wall Street Journal stated, “The pleasant surprise was Nicki Minaj, whose comments were compassionate, thoughtful, and insightful throughout.”
However, we are going to buck the trend and say that we found Nicki Minaj annoying. She constantly spoke over people, made silly voices and changer her hair constantly. Her petty duels with Mariah Carey also make the show feel very high school playground like, but that’s just our opinion.
Did you see American Idol and what did you think of the new judges?
