American Idol has got a new home!
Yes, before the airing of its twelfth season, it has emerged the show will no longer air in the UK’s ITV2 and has been snapped up by rival network Channel 5, in a bid to capitalize on its A List judging panel which boasts Pop icon Mariah Carey and chart topping Rapper Nicki Minaj.
Set to launch in January 2013, the show will now call Channel 5* home, billed as a ‘defining show’ in an official statement released today.
It will continue to air on the FOX network State side.
