Winter TV Preview: American Idol

American Idol, Fox,
Premieres Wednesday, January 16 at 8/7c

Yes, yes, we’ll miss our all-time favorite judge Jennifer Lopez and her goosies on the upcoming season of American Idol. But we’re confident Mariah Carey will step into her Louboutins with diva style and flair in season 12 of Fox’s hit singing competition. We’re anxious to see if the fur will fly between Carey and fellow new judge Nicki Minaj on the live shows, as it reportedly did during the audition rounds. And, we can’t wait to see if any of the contestants attempt to sing Carey’s classics in her presence… Now that should be interesting to watch!
