Mariah Carey to join American Idol?

Posted by on July 16, 2012 at 4:29 PM EST

It’s a crazy whirlwind at American Idol right now! Judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have gone, and long-time judge Randy Jackson could also be on his way out.

Now reports have been swirling around that Mariah Carey could be joining the panel, which badly needs a heavy hitter among its number following the high profile departures. And the show needs to dig itself out of its current ratings slump.

Carey could be an intriguing addition to the team, as she has already worked quite a bit with Randy Jackson. He has been musical director of some of the pop diva’s tours. So, to have them both, on, well that’s one power couple we’d love to see!

Mariah’s husband Nick Cannon has insisted that the show “couldn’t afford” his wife. He reportedly said: “They gave J-Lo $20m – they might have to double that!”

Crucially, though, at the same time he didn’t rule out the possibility of her joining the panel, saying: “I’m not her husband – you never know.”

What do you think? Want to see the pop princess in a judge’s chair next fall? One thing is certain, that show’s going to need a big name – if not Mariah Carey’s then someone else’s – and soon.
