Mariah made the announcement yesterday afternoon re-tweeting the news from her reps, which said that she will be going on a world tour and will not be returning to Idol.
After Mariah made her announcement, Nicki tweeted her news last night which you can see below.
The only one left on the show now is Keith Urban! Will he be joined by Kelly Clarkson and/or Jennifer Hudson? We’ll find out soon.
Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world! Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!
