American Idol is definitely in a peculiar position looking for possibly three judges! A new rumor has surfaced that Mariah Carey. Sources say that the television program is close to signing Mariah. Jennifer Lopez was the prize earner netting $15 million dollars judging the show last season. The word is that Mariah would earn $17 million, making her the highest paid reality show host/judge. I think Mariah would have been good for this show… five years ago. I just don’t think American Idol has much steam left. However this massive judge search gives us some awesome gossip!
