American Idle

Big news on the American Idol front. What's that you say? Well, we don't have any news about The Voice right now so we're talking about American Idol instead. Just bear with us.

The rumor mill has churned out word that both Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are relinquishing their seats at the judge's table. Shortly after Mariah's formal announcement, Minaj took to Twitter to announce she was peacing out as well. And just like that, what little excitement was left on the aging talent show has evaporated completely.

The question now is who will be brought in to replace the dueling divas. We're not saying the producers will purposely seek out two opposed parties, to keep the drama flowing, but the frontrunners in the search so far seem to indicate as much.

Our vote is for Dog & Cat, even if they are both a little over-qualified. They're longstanding beef over who actually threw up on their owner's couch is just the sort of intrigue AI needs right now.
