Charlie Askew (LOVE HIM!, "Baby, I could say the same back to you.")
I like this new batch of judges also, and Nicki is SO my favorite. I love how they have featured mostly good singers with just a few joke ones, and I love how Nicki is giving actual criticism and commentary, which is why I appreciate her presence on the panel. Keith Urban is pretty good as well. Mariah has moments, but she's the closest to the lackluster/you're so beautiful/non-critiquing style of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler last season, but she's still better overall than they were by their second season. Randy, well, Randy is Randy.
