Mariah 'Shocked' at 'Certain' Judges Decisions
December 12, 2012
The new season of American Idol hasn't aired yet, but the judges have already spent enough time together to become 'a family,' as Randy Jackson referred the group on Wednesday, and every family comes with a fair share of disagreements.
"Sometimes I'm kind of shocked as to what certain people think should go through," said Mariah Carey, who described the new judges' panel as "quite varied." Mariah went on to clarify, "And sometimes we're all in agreement and it's obvious and there it is."
As no group of judges has been like-minded on every decision, the important thing is that they respect each other's opinion -- something Ryan Seacrest says they've excelled at.
"Last night I saw us all sitting at a round table after the auditions, having a good laugh and talking about what a great process this Hollywood week is going to be," Ryan said. "So far so good."
As far as what viewers can expect this season, Nicki Minaj promises "craziness," saying, "Sometimes I have two heads when I come on set, and you know what? That's how it's supposed to be."
American Idol's two-night season premiere airs Wednesday, January 16 and Thursday, January 17 at 8/7c on FOX.
