New judges, new season and a new attitude just might be the right ingredients for this year’s ‘American Idol’ to be its best yet!

I have had the fortune of being in the audience and backstage at American Idol for the past couple years, and seeing how things are working out, this could be the best season yet! After tonight’s Season 12 premiere, you might be agreeing with me. Let me tell you why!

I Hate Nicki Minaj!

I never will understand the phenomenon that is Nicki Minaj, and my dislike for her will be perfect for this year’s show. If you don’t have a villain on any show that you like, then it isn’t reaching its full potential. You can have bad judges, like Ellen Degeneres or Kara DioGuardi, but they were just bad because they didn’t fit the format well.

There is actual dislike for Nicki, »
