Today, Fox has released more high-res photos of the recently announced American Idol judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson, as well as host Ryan Seacrest.

Yesterday, we showed you one of the first images of the American Idol judges sitting at the table during auditions at the New York City taping.

Check out some pictures below that show an official group picture of the judges and host Ryan Seacrest, a picture of the judges during taping with Ryan Seacrest, and another of the judges and Seacrest speaking with some press in New York City:

This week, we’ve set this poll up for Hypable readers asking if they are excited about this conjuring of judges. The results have been somewhat mixed, with the majority of readers saying “No way. This’ll be a train wreck.”

Do you think that the new judges have the star power or general interest to bring in an all new audience in strong numbers?

Over the summer such names as Nick Jonas, Pharrell Williams and Adam Lambert had been rumored to fill the the spots that Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler left after two seasons on the show.

American Idol’s twelfth season will premiere in 2013.
