The American Idol judging rumor mill is still churning, as the sole officially confirmed judge, Mariah Carey, has reportedly suggested Lenny Kravitz would make a more suitable addition to the panel than Nicki Minaj.
FESTIVE! FESTIVE! FESTIVE! OMG I love American Idol so much! Long Live Idol!
My judging panel: Randy Jackson, Adam Lambert and Mariah Carey! PERFECTION!
Now that Mariah Carey is officially the new American Idol judge… let the mudslinging begin! TMZ is reporting that Mariah was a “nightmare to work with” when she was the guest mentor during Season 7.
I believe it! Mariah is a diva and she will let you know. Good luck Nigel Lythgoe! This is going to be an amazing Season 12. Long Live American Idol! I love this show!!!
Nick Cannon tells TMZ that American Idol will have to pay Mariah Carey double what they paid Jennifer Lopez if they want her to judge the show next season.
So I guess it’s safe to say that Mimi is NOT in play at this point since American Idol is rumored to be downsizing for Season 12.
My picks for judges: Randy Jackson, Adam Lambert and Aretha Franklin. Perfect.
Watch the video here:
Mariah Carey is in “serious talks” to become the next American Idol judge, reports PEOPLE this morning.
If “serious” they mean that FOX is offering her more than $15 million that The X Factor is paying Britney Spears, then I’ll believe it. Mariah is notorious for her diva demands — and FOX will literally have to offer American Idol on a silver platter to her if they want her to be the next face of the show.
At a Project Canvas event on May 14, 2012, Extra caught up with Mariah Carey — who was rumored to join The X-Factor panel last year — and asked her about the recent news that Britney Spears would be joining the show.
Well, Mariah’s comment is a head scratcher. What exactly went down for her not to do the show? Is she bitter?
