So the big question is, who will round out the judges’ panel? While rumors run rampant, I can say that there will likely be two seats filled. Why, you ask? It appears that longtime Idol fixture and judge Randy Jackson will be transitioning into a mentor role. He certainly has the credentials, and the contestants would surely benefit from his knowledge.
Jennifer Lopez is leaving American Idolbecause they told her to to focus on family and film. E! News recently caught up with the former judge to get her thoughts on Mariah Carey joining American Idol. Does Carey have what it takes?
“I think so, yeah! Why not? She’s a musician for a long time she has a lot of experience,” Lopeztold E! News. “And it’s that experience you offer them at the end of the day, the contestants just want to get better and grow through the process.”
American Idol winner Jordin Sparks has stepped out with a rocking new figure thanks to diet, exercise, and good old fashioned hard work. The star has recently lost fifty pounds! How did she do it? She entirely changed her diet and lifestyle, implementing new strategies to make sure that the pounds just melted away.
Jordin touts cutting out her Starbucks cravings and late night snacks, and swapping out sugary drinks and treats with healthier options. She also swears by portion control and not eating within two hours of going to bed.
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!
