I think it's pretty safe to say the last season of American Idol & the Mariah/Nicki experiment was a total dud. Whereas we did get some drama between the two-headed-Diva-monster, we never ultimately saw the celebrity-deathmatch cage fight that we all so desperately wanted.
So what's next? According to MTV, we may be seeing some new (and young) faces in the judging chairs next season.
According to Radar Online, the site reported that producer Nigel Lythgoe's desperate plan to boost ratings is to assemble a "dream team" of new judges that includes former (and maybe current again ) couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, Pink and Sean "Diddy" Combs.
While a spokesperson for "Idol" offered a no comment at press time on the rumor, the anonymous source told Radar that after a lackluster season, "Everyone involved with the show is well aware of it so that's why producers are franticly working on lining up big name stars for season 14 ... There's more drama going on behind the scenes of the show than on the stage, and that's why there's a major overhaul in the works."
I've still never seen a full episode of the show, but I must say that I'll tune in just to see how old Diddy & Ryan Seacrest look next to Biebs & Selena.
