Mariah Carey has officially joined ‘American Idol‘ as a judge for Season 12, which kicks off in 2013. Congrats not only to Carey but to Fox on this major, major coup. While it seemed that producers had a challenge on their hands in trying to find a suitable A-list replacement for the departing Jennifer Lopez, they outdiva-ed the diva with this addition.
‘American Idol‘ sure is looking to fill the heels, er, judging spot, vacated by Jennifer Lopez, with someone bigger and better! The show is reportedly thisclose to replacing one diva with another in the form of Mariah Carey. O to the M to the F to the G. The five octave Carey as an ‘Idol’ judge? So much for those rumors that ‘Idol’ was planning to downsize for Season 12. Producers are shooting for the stratosphere if they close this deal.
Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez leaving ‘American Idol‘ may bum out their fans, but it actually gave producers a bit of relief — following the initial panic that ensued when they realized they may well be out of judges.
After two seasons, Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler has chosen to leave his role as a judge on ‘American Idol.’ Tyler made the announcement via press release, smack dab in the middle of speculation that Charlie Sheen is up for a slot on the panel and right after Jennifer Lopez, who joined the same season as Tyler, said that she thinks it’s time for her to go. Will Randy ‘Yo! Dawg!’ Jackson be the sole judge to remain?
Kelly Clarkson can cross another item off of her long list of accomplishments. Arguably the most famous ‘American Idol‘ alumna, Clarkson’s single ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’ off her album ‘Stronger’ became the best-selling ‘Idol’ single of all time, even knocking fellow ‘Idol’ winner Carrie Underwood back to second place. Underwood held the title when her single ‘Before He Cheats’ was released.
