Tonight’s episode of ‘American Idol’ (May 15) brought the first part of the Season 12 finale, and the Top 2 engaged in a true battle of country versus soul. Kree Harrison and Candice Glover performed three songs each: the first was chosen by ‘Idol’ creator Simon Fuller, the second was their potential winning single and the third was a reprise of a tune performed earlier in the season.
Rap diva Nicki Minaj is one and done.
Sources close to the production claim that the controversial star will exit 'American Idol' after Season 12 wraps tomorrow (May 16). She served on the judge's panel for a season, famously clashing with Mariah Carey, who also sat on the panel for her first year.
It's no shock that eliminated 'American Idol' contestant Angie Miller wants to do a duet with Miley Cyrus. Not only do the pretty ladles look alike with their toothy grins, but they also have the same nasally speaking voice! Hello, they need to partner up and quick.
Earlier today (May 9), we learned that ‘American Idol’ producers reportedly plan to replace judges Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban with a new set of panelists next season due to low ratings. Never one to bite her tongue, Minaj responded to the rumors and Jackson confirmed that he has, in fact, decided to call it quits.
