Mariah Carey ThisClose To Becoming American Idol's Sassy New Judge!

| Filed under: Mariah CareyAmerican Idol

Well! Well! Well!

Sounds like Mariah Carey won't be too expensive after all!

According to strong reports, Butterfly is just a hop and a skip away from signing the final dotted line into American Idol's judging seat.

And guess how much she'll demand on her paycheck??

She's going to make a record-breaking $17M+ … … … that's INSANE!!

…insanely fabulous! …'dahlings!' ;)

And just a reminder — Aretha Franklin has expressed interest in one of the other judging seats. So if they both make it, that is gonna be one soul-tastic show! Can't wait!!

    I don't watch every week but I like idol. I can not stand hearing Mariah Carey baby talk. I think I could completely stop watching if she got it.

    Have any of you guys ever watched Mariah Carey… candidly? Bitch is funny as hell and blunt; definitely something we need on this show! I liked J.Lo (even though she lacked talent), but I hated how she would baby all the contestants. If you wanna be a judge, you're gonna have to be real. I would watch the show on a regular basis just to see Mariah act like her fabulous crazy self.

    Mariah Carey should read the book The Boy Who Cried Over Everything before she joins American Idol. She can get it free on Kindle for the next couple of days —

    seriously MARIAH is the answer to this show's problems. She is actually business savvy and can really help those kids. and i wouldn't mind hearing her sing a capella here and there on the show. her new single triumphant is gonna be amazing!!! Team Mariah! She is the best!

    Watch out for Mariah Carey's latest single coming out this early August entitled Triumphant!! She and Christina Aguilera were about to release single and albums at the same time. Exciting!!

    I love me some Mariah, but I'm not sure she can save this sinking turd of a show. Who the hell even won this season? Or last? Or for the last 5 years? My "give a shit" meter just doesn't register with this show anymore.

    How in the world can a woman who is absolutely so self-absorbed & has talked about no one but herself for the last 40 years be able to judge anyone else? She'd be comparing every contestant to herself; She's the next "SIMON".

    Re: tennistar – have you actually heard the new single, IT'S GARBAGE!!! it's out there if you know where to find it and trust it's nothing special.

  12. Katie says – reply to this


    OH LORD NOOOOO.. She is going to SUCK. Her child like voice is beyond annoying.

    I would much rather have Perez be a judge instead of this bat shit crazy fool.

  14. 14

    Re: Pix – Jesus god don't encourage the pansy in his quest!! Mariah Carey would be hilarious; she's honest and knows the business. Perez is a nobody with no taste and no brains.

    Remember when the show used to be about focussing on finding new talent? Now it's all about the judges. Too bad.

  16. Penny Douglas says – reply to this


    I love Mariah and always have but the question I have is, if they are paying Mariah the 17 Million then why didn't they just pay that same amount to JLO, because that is what she was aksing? I would still love to have JLO also! She and Steven will be missed for sure!

  17. 17

    REALLY??? I guess I wont watch it anymore. How could AI producer's be so disconnected?

  18. Janeegood says – reply to this


    RIP American Idol! She won't bring in the viewers, the show has run its course! Besides she is too much of a Diva, it's all about the money for her. She could care a less for those young people.

    Used to really like Idol but stopped watching it when Simon and Paula left, they were so funny especially Simon!

  23. NoFan says – reply to this

    no way in hell will you see fat-retha and mariah at the same table . Aretha is a narcissist and she doesnt get along with any check that has higher billing or higher salary. Yall know FAT heffa wont take her fat ass sitting down. If Mariah gets 17 mil the fat heffa will demand 17 mil +1 dollar. You know how the fat bitch rolls. No way you will see both!!!! HELL TO THE NAAAAWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Finally a SINGER who knows how to SING judging this show. What a concept!

    Re: xcalibur – No offense but what the hell does Aretha Franklin's weight have to do with her impact on the history of music exactly. No Aretha no Janis, no Madonna no Cher ect. Franklin changed the game, yes she is a diva but unlike these auto tuned morons out and about today she can back that up vocally and actually play piano. She doesn't just know now singing she knows MUSIC. Unlike the joke that just got fired (Lopez). I don't have to love Aretha to respect the foundation she laid down.
