The latest American Idol promotional spot debuted during Saturday evening’s Major League Baseball World Series broadcast, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Judges Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, and Keith Urban appear in the latest TV spot for the popular singing competition, all of whom proclaim that dreams can, in fact, come true. The latest season is expect to return to the small screen this January.
While Minaj and Carey may not enjoy the presence of each other’s company, the pair are sporting big smiles for the new American Idol spot. If there’s still animosity between the two singers, then it’s not on display in the commercial embedded below.
“To all the dreamers,” Mariah Carey says in the clip.
“To everyone who thought they’d never have a chance,” Nicki Minaj continues.
“It’s time to make dreams come true,” Keith Urban says.
Host Ryan Seacrest wraps up the latest promotional spot by dropping his famous line on the masses. “This… is ‘American Idol,’ ” he delivers.
The buzz for this season of American Idol has been building since the addition of professional singer and diva Mariah Carey as one of the show’s judges. However, things got even more interesting when Nicki Minaj was added to cast. Not surprisingly, it didn’t take very long for the two singers to publicly butt heads.
Nick Cannon was quick to jump to his spouse’s defense after footage of the on-set feud between Carey and Minaj found its way online.
“I always say my wife is the strongest, classiest women that I’ve ever met in any situation. I’m never concerned about her handling herself,” Cannon explained to E! News. “It’s unfortunate because a lot of times when you think about why America loves these shows, it’s all about people accomplishing and reaching their dreams and being guided by the experts. At times when we seem to lose our composure it’s kinda disappointing, but we move on and hopefully [the conflict] isn’t what the show becomes about.”
The next season of American Idol is scheduled to air on January 16. The latest promo has been embedded below.
