I knew it! I knew Mariah Carey wanted this job even though her husband Nick Cannon said American Idol couldn’t afford her.Lol at Nick (looks like there is a communication gap).She will reportedly be paid $18 million.
American Idol was the first major reality series to use Major Celebrities as Judges when they hired Jennifer Lopez . The Voice then hired Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine, and X Factor hired Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.
Fox Broadcasting Company President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly said
“I really can’t confirm anything except for one thing,” he began, “which is we do in fact have one judge whose deal closed very, very recently. I think it’s the biggest recording artist that any of these shows have ever had. It’s an artist that many contestants have tried to emulate, have tried to have sung the songs, have tried to have hit the notes, and because it really was concluded only hours ago, our new judge cannot be with us.”
Mariah said this during a Public telephone Conversation with Kevin Reilly
“I’m so excited to be joining ‘Idol,'” Mariah declared over the line. “First of all, I wanted to be there today. I wish I was there myself to tell you, but it all happened real quickly. I can’t wait to get started in a few months. Everyone have a great TCAs, and I’ll see you in January. Bye, everybody!”
