Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj. Ryan Seacrest Tweeted the photo and the announcement. I think it is a good mix and unlike X Factor I don't think this is just for ratings, but I think the judges actually represent a good mix of the music industry. I think it was really important to have someone like Keith Urban because Idol has had so many winners who are essentially country singers. I also think Randy was essential because he keeps the continuity going back to the origins of the show. I actually think Ryan is a great host and if X Factor throws out Khloe Kardashian you will see why you need a host with experience and not just go for ratings.
