We’ve already predicted that the winner of Season 12 of American Idol will be someone with a totally new style to get away from the string of “White Guys With Guitars” that have won for five seasons running.

The streak stops here, if Nicki Minaj has anything to say about it.

“I’m pretty sure we’ll have something new and different this year,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

Nicki went on to say that we can expect “craziness” and “kooky” behavior come January 2013.

“I try to never plan what I’m going to say or how I’m going to feel,” she said. “I just try to stay in the moment.”

The loose-lipped judge added that she’s been surprised by how much she gets along with the contestants, saying, “I didn’t think I’d gel with them so much...it’s interesting once you see these kids and how much they want it and you know it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity...”

A warm and fuzzy Nicki Minaj? Who would’ve thought the judge who has already openly feuded with fellow judge Mariah Carey and former judge Steven Tyler would be such a softy?
