Just a few hours after Mariah Carey announced she was leaving American Idol, Nicki Minaj announced that she too, is leaving the show.
Using the same medium Mariah used (Twitter), Minaj tweeted: ‘Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world!’
She added, ‘Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!’
FOX has confirmed her departure in a statement released on Thursday.
‘Nicki Minaj is a superstar who brought a level of honesty and passion to ‘American Idol’ and who had a tremendous positive impact on so many contestants this season. Given her extremely busy career, we understand and respect her decision and wish her the best,’ FOX said.
Now the only remaining judge is Keith Urban, who is also rumored to soon quit the show too.
