We are officially one week away from the American Idol 2013 premiere and what are you most excited about for American Idol Season 12? Not only do we have new American Idol judges Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki MInaj, but we also have the return of Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest. The off-season and American Idol 2013 auditions have brought major drama for the show, so I think it could be a ratings hike for FOX, which is exactly what they wanted when they brought on the new judges for American Idol Season 12.

The things I am looking forward to on American Idol 2013:

  • Mariah Carey versus Nicki Minaj – They tried to play it up yesterday on the press tour that they have moved past it and are professionals, but I doubt it. You could still see the tension between the two and when the live shows come around there is nothing holding them back from going off on each other.
  • Keith Urban – He is a good-looking man, so that doesn’t hurt. Plus, I think it will be a good thing to bring a country judge for American Idol Season 12. The show has produced some country superstars, so it is long overdue to have a judge from that genre.
  • American Idol 2013 Live Shows – The auditions are overrated to me and I just want to see who makes the cut and start voting on those singers!

The things I am not looking forward to on American Idol 2013:

  • American Idol 2013 Auditions – FOX has a tendency to show the worst singers that have auditioned and then some that make the Top 24 don’t even get any airtime. I get annoyed  with it, but I am very intrigued to see the audition in the American Idol Season 12 video seen below!
  • Randy Jackson – I don’t want to hear the “dogs” and “in it to win it” and “best performance of the season” comments from him. Didn’t he say he was leaving the show?
  • Hollywood Week – These singers act like they are going through some training camp for a sports team the way they are passing out and having ambulances called for them!

Seven more days and we all get to see the drama unfold for American Idol 2013! Stay right here for all your updates, recaps, videos, previews and predictions for an exciting season. Check out that audition I am dying to see here:
