As was the case of The X Factor last year, the last members of American Idol‘s judging panel were announced just hours before the show’s first televised audition today. Here is the first group photo of new judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, joined by returning judge Randy Jackson and host Ryan Seacrest at the taping in New York. Jackson is keeping his anchor spot as the last judge to speak, while Carey is positioned to open critiques.
