Nicki Minaj has been named as the latest judge on American Idol, after lots of rumours last month.

She joins previously announced Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson, as well as another new judge - Keith Urban.

Nicki and Nicole Kidman's husband join the show for the 12th season, and Fox's president of alternative entertainment made this statement, saying: 

"Nicki's an unbelievably captivating international phenomenon who has made an indelible mark on rap and pop. And Keith is another great addition to Idol, he's one of the biggest stars in country music and I know that our fans and contestants will fall in love with him."
