American Idol Paychecks

Is the summer-long drama surrounding the American Idol judges finally coming to an end? Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban are reportedly joining Mariah Carey on the judging panel. Randy Jackson is moving into a mentoring role

American Idol is dead set on four judges for the upcoming season because it worked so well the last time, presumably to compete with newer and hipper singing competitions like The Voice and The X Factor, so there is still one vacant spot.

Still, the end might be near, because Enrique Iglesias is currently sitting on an offer from American Idol for about $4 million. Coincidentally, Enrique just wrapped up a tour with former Idol judge Jennifer Lopez.

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.

TMZ reports that Adam Lambert and Miley Cyrus are still in the running for the other empty seat.

UPDATE:  TMZ now says her paycheck for one season stands at $18 million!
