As you've probably already heard, there's going to be yet another shake-up on the set of American Idol. Randy Jackson and Nicki Minaj have both made their official announcements that they'll be ditching their judging gig leaving just Mariah Carey and Keith Urban. Will those two come back next season? We're not sure, but we've got a few ideas...
With season 12 coming to an end tonight, we've taken the liberty of compiling a list of possible pop stars to take over on the judging panel next season. Find out our 10 picks in the gallery below!
Who do you want to see as a judge on season 13 of American Idol? Tell us in the comment section below and tweet us @OKMagazine.
1. Carly Rae Jepsen
Did ya know that Carly came in third on 'Canadian Idol'?! Ryan Seacrest, call her maybe?!
2. Bruno Mars
He's a little old school and a little R&B and a lot of everything we love. Do you think he'd be a good judge or would he just wanna be lazy all day...get it!?
3. Jason Derulo
Jaaaasonnnn Deruuuulooo! We can just hear Ryan singing that every week as he introduces the "Don't Wanna Go Home" singer.
4. Ariana Grande
She might be young, but this chick has definitely got it. We're obsessing over Ariana right now and think she would make the perfect addition to the show.
5. Katy Perry
She's got 12 People's Choice Awards and 2 American Music Awards under her belt and the personality to make all of American tune in every week.
6. Emeli Sandé
Our new favorite Brit, Emeli's voice is just too amazing to not be shared every week on our TV screens. She definitely has what it take to pick out the next chart-topper.
7. Adam Lambert
Adam could bring the intensity the past couple seasons have been missing. Being an 'AI' runner-up himself, we're pretty sure he wouldn't be holding back with any criticism.
8. Kellie Pickler
'AI' alum herself, Kellie Pickler would make the perfect country version of Paula Abdul on the judging panel, right?!
9. Justin Timberlake
Okay, fine, so maybe this one is a stretch but how amazing would JT be as an 'American Idol' judge?!
10. Luke Bryan
Every season we need a bit of good 'ol country in there...and what better guy than southern hottie, Luke Bryan?
