Earlier today Mariah Carey announced her departure from the embattled talent competition and just moments ago Nicki Minaj did the same.
Both come on the heels of longtime judge, Randy Jackson, who handed in his resignation just days before season 12’s finale.
Both Carey and Minaj say they will once again focus on making music and touring.
As for Keith Urban, Idol’s only remaining judge, rumor now has him staying put. According to Deadline, an internal FOX poll showed Urban to be season 12’s real breakout star. Urban’s laid back manner apparently worked in his favor as Idol seeks to assemble a less “dramatic” judging panel for season 13.
