American Idol can't catch this Butterfly!
Now that Steven Tyler and J.Lo have officially "walked away" from the judges table, FOX is desperately searching for a replacement(s) that can compete with Britney on X Factor.
We've heard whisperings that Mariah Carey is up for the job, buuuut her husband, Nick Cannon, says it's unlikely.
The America's Got Talent host told reporters:
"I don't know if they [Idol] can afford Mariah Carey. That's a lot of money. If they gave J.Lo $20 million, they might have to double that!"
He's right though! $20 mil would hardly cover the rent on the couple's summer home.
Plus, MiMi has a new album coming out soon. She doesn't have time for a TV show!
Lucky for FOX, we know the perrrrfect replacement!
