Oh, Mimi! We're so happy to have you!!
And, while we were busy jumping up and down and giving ourselves high-fives, that sneaky little lamb took to her Twitter account to speak out about her new gig.
"It's gonna be so much fun working on @AmericanIdol. As a singer-songwriter, I'm excited to help find and nurture new talent. LYM! –MC"
And nurture, you shall, Mariah! You really can't get a better mentor than THE Mariah Carey!
LYM right backatcha! (Which is "Love Ya Much" in Mimi speak, BTWz!!!)
