A lot has happened in the world of American Idol this week. The Season 12 judging lineup was finally confirmed to include Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson, and the gang has already experienced a series of auditions in New York City.

Now, the first promo picture of the judging quartet lined up with host Ryan Seacrest has dropped! Mariah shared this group shot on her Twitter page last night, and like the seating arrangement shot Ryan shared yesterday, this picture is worth a thousand words!

Mariah strikes a diva stance with her manager Randy at her back. Nicki, of course, sports a hilarious expression on her face! Meanwhile, Keith looks relaxed and casual out on the outskirts, happy to let the ladies take center focus alongside Ryan. Rumored to be at odds already, Mariah and Nicki are standing closer than they have in any other picture we’ve seen of them.

So far, it looks like one happy Idol family to us!
