‘American Idol’ has Found Jennifer Lopez Replacement
There have been multiple stars rumored to be joining the ‘American Idol’ judges panel, but rumor has it someone is finalizing a deal.
That someone is Mariah Carey. Seriously?! Mariah was great back in the 90’s but now she is nothing more than a washed up diva if you ask me. I get that from a music business stand-point she would be a good addition, but I just don’t see her being able to bring the personality to the judges table like others could.
Reportedly Mariah will be making a reality show record of $17 million for one season! How ridiculous is that?! Apparently that’s the amount Jennifer Lopez asked for to renew her contract for one more year, and the producers all but laughed her out the door. So why does Mariah get it? Well I’m assuming her manager and soon-to-be co-worker Randy Jackson had the inside connection to pull that off.
I don’t care who you are, $17 million is too much money to sit and tell people what you think of their singing and performing abilities – I do that for free from my couch – I feel cheated.
What do you think of Mariah Carey joining ‘American Idol’?
