Channel 5 have 'acquired' (brought for a shitload of cash) the rights to show the next 'season' (series) of American Idol.
The potentially amazing 'coming together' of Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey will be shown on their digital channel 5* from January 13 2013.
"American Idol is immense," reads a statement, as quoted by the BBC. "We believe it's going to be a defining show for 5* building on an already impressive schedule."
'Already impressive schedule'.
