AMERICAN IDOL: Mariah Carey Joins as a Judge

July 23, 2012 by  

It’s official: Mariah Carey is joining AMERICAN IDOL.

“I’m so excited to be joining IDOL,” Carey said over the phone during Kevin Reilly’s Television Critics Association press tour panel. “I can’t wait to get started in a couple of months.”

As for the rest of the judging panel, it’s a little bit more of a question mark. Steven Tyler has officially said he’s off the show, but Jennifer Lopez’s status with the show is a bit unclear. (Reilly said that he thinks it’s 100% that Lopez won’t be returning.)

Are you excited Carey is coming to AMERICAN IDOL?

    Not a fan of Mariah Carey really, but at least I respect her talent and think she has a right to judge up and coming singers. I don’t feel that way about Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, or Demi Lovato. None of them have true singing talent IMO. They all rely on putting out an image and computer programming to cover their singing voices.
