‘American Idol‘ casting rumors have been running wild since Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler confirmed they
were fired weren’t interested in returning for another season, but we now have official confirmation on at least one new judge – Mariah Carey!
Mariah signed on the dotted line today and it seems that she and J-Lo have more in common than having twin babies, as Mariah will be paid a whopping $12 million, the same amount that Jennifer was earning during her stint on the show.
UPDATE: TMZ now says her paycheck for one season stands at $18 million!
TELL US – DO YOU WANT TO WATCH NOW THAT MARIAH HAS SIGNED ON? DO YOU THINK SHE’S WORTH TWELVE MILLION DOLLARS?
