On Thursday, judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, who frequently feuded on the singing competition's just-completed season, both announced that they are leaving the show.
Carey's Rep made the news official in a tweet saying;
"W/ global success of "#Beautiful" (#1 in 30+ countries so far) @mariahcarey confirms world tour & says goodbye 2 Idol"
Shortly after, Minaj also took to Twitter to announce her departure, saying;
“Thank you American Idol for a life changning experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world! Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!”
Lol, see them acting like they left voluntarily whereas their contracts were not renewed.
