Thank god. Fox TV confirmed Monday that Mariah Carey has signed on as a judge for the 194th season of American Idol. According to sources, Mimi is set to make somewhere between $12 and $17 million to judge the next endless season.
I couldn’t be more relieved. Producers surely won’t put another diva on the team in the chair beside Mariah… meaning Celine Dion, whom I was terrified would tarnish her career by even considering going down on this sinking ship.
The best part: Mariah has never been the sharpest knife in the drawer. She might just give Paula Abdul a run for some of the most confounding statements ever. Things might just get interesting, after all. (Just kidding! Who cares?!)
