It has been exciting watching as the judging lineup for the new season of “American Idol” became solidified. And we now have the official portrait of Season 12’s critics.

Returning for another round of fun, Randy Jackson was joined by newcomers Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban, and host Ryan Seacrest in the new image.

During his interview on the “Today” show this morning (September 18), Seacrest discussed the supposed feud going on between Nicki and Mariah.

“There are not too many dull moments between the two of them. But at the end of the day, we all hug and laugh and go home. They get along fine, but… they are, strong and candid in their opinions,” he shared.
