Is this American Idol’s Idea of Promoting the New Season?

Just … SMH


The more I think about it, this is probably less about Nigel, Fox, TMZ, and Co. promoting the new season and more about Mariah Carey needling Nicki Minaj to the point where she’s able to get her kicked off the show (or to get NM to walk). Mariah is a Diva, and there can only be room for one on a table full of male judges (Mariah wants to be the only female judge, knowing Nicki will distract). Hmmm, I wonder if she will get her way…

I say this, of course, because the Idol producers must know that two black divas going at each other is just not a “good look” for a mainstream “family friendly” show. This ain’t VH1! This ain’t “Basketball Wives”! And if they want the “ratchet” audiences, they’ll be alienating the other audience that won’t watch ratchet.

Yep, this must be a Mariah Carey-fueled attempt to squeeze out the hip-hop diva. I guess we shall see. Either way, if Nicki leaves or remains, I’m sure they’re getting the buzz which I’m sure will help with ratings.
