10 things guaranteed to happen on the 12th season of 'American Idol'By Kenny HerzogSpecial to MSN TVDespite the above title's proclamation, we all know the only things guaranteed in life are death, taxes and Kim Kardashian's baby. But as "American Idol" Season 12 looms perilously near (Jan. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX, to be exact), it's pretty safe to assume certain blunders, baffling performances, flummoxing fashion choices and petty in-fights will occur with rote predictability. The additions of dueling train wrecks Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, along with Mr. Nicole Kidman, aka Keith Urban, next to Randy Jackson at the judges' table only further ensures prime-time bedlam.

To quote Season 10 victor Scotty McCreery -- and, more indirectly, Ryan Seacrest -- lock the door and turn the lights down low, because we assert with absolute confidence that all the forthcoming predictions will occur during Season 12 of "American Idol."
