Even a staged bitch brawl between a horny Wuzzle and the broken condom baby of a Madball and a Muppet on acid couldn’t bring American Idol’s ratings back up, so it’s no surprise that they’re letting go of their most expensive judges. Mimi announced today that she’s leaving American Idol (translation: FOX didn’t want to throw another $18 million check at her) and instead she’s going on a world tour where I’m sure she’ll have at least 3 wardrobe malfunctions and make the lambs cream until they’re dehydrated. Mimi re-tweeted this from her management company:
Then a quick minute later, Nicki Minaj also announced on Twitter that Idol’s crew members won’t have to wear special gas masks next season, because they won’t be subjected to the wig glue and toxic paint fumes that waft off of her.
Randy Jackson was kicked out the door a few weeks ago, so that leaves Keith Urban and Ryan Seacrest. There’s rumors that producers want an all-alumni judging panel next season and have already signed Jennifer Hudson and are trying to get Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aiken and/or Glamberace.
But for now, Ryan Seacrest and Keith Urban are all by themselves. They’re sitting on an empty stage and highlighting each other’s hair. Actually, I’d rather watch Gaycrest and Keith Urban highlight each other’s hair for an hour than watch American Idol.
