America Idol Snags Mariah Carey For Celebrity Judge Position [Rumor]


It looks like American Idol apparently can afford to sign Mariah Carey as it is reported that they are already closing on the deal to sign the songstress.

Unfortunately it’s not quite what Nick Cannon had in mind…

 Deadline  reports:

EXCLUSIVE: I have learned that Mariah Carey is finalizing a deal to join Fox’s American Idol as a new judge. I hear Carey would command a salary of more than $17 million for next season, which would set a new record for talent on a reality series, eclipsing the paycheck of Idol‘s Jennifer Lopez.

Stay Tuned.
