So that is the reason why they have to let go of Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and the ever primadonna Jennifer Lopez! They cut up to save the best for the judging panel!
Finally, Mariah Carey had confirmed that she is actually one of the two new judges in the next season of American Idol which will air January 2013, for its twelfth season.
Carey had already confirmed her American Idol gig via Twitter, she said: ”It’s gonna be so much fun working on @AmericanIdol. As a singer-songwriter, I’m excited to help find and nurture new talent.”
A lot of people loved this major change especially that American Idol is kind of sucking at the ratings and crowning less deserving winners. As of the moment, Adam Lambert is also one of the top choices to fill in Steven Tyler’s position.
Let’s see if this will change dynamics of the show for the better. TMZ has reported that Carey got the gig for $18 Million, just $3M higher than Britney Spears’ stint as X Factor US judge for next season.
