‘American Idol’ — Judges Get Right to Work

“American Idol” judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson wasted no time getting right to work today … showing up in NYC alongside host Ryan Seacrest for day one of auditions. 

“Idol” made the official announcement about this season”s judging panel just a few hours earlier.  

As our sources first reported, Jackson got a last minute reprieve when producers failed to come to terms on a contract with Enrique Iglesias.

The 12th season of “American Idol” will premiere in January.
