It’s Official: Mariah Carey Will Be on American Idol

In the greatest news since the invention of news, Mariah Carey is officially the newest American Idol judge. We discussed this over the weekend, and I honestly thought that it would never happen, that the rumor that Mariah was close to signing a contract was just meant to get some buzz going about the show, but thankfully, I was wrong.

The announcement was made at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, and Mariah called in because the contract had been finalized just hours before. Here’s what she had to say:

“I am so excited to be joining Idol. First of all, I wanted to be there today and I wish I could’ve been there to tell you, but I think you know this all kind of just happened real quickly, so I can’t wait to get started in a couple months.”

Yes. Just yes.

  • While Mariah is very talented…American Idol is where all fading stars go to rekindle their careers.

  • American Idol? Is that even on anymore? And please, pretty please….with a cherry on top, burn these pictures of MC and her gigantic toe. It’s just gross.

  • My Lord, Please get rid of the Camel Toe. That is NOT what young ladies need to see. I knew Mariah was trash. Ughhh disgusting. I think I will pick another HERO in my life now. I have just about had it with her. Bu-Bye skank!

  • Awesome! Now, let’s see if I can work around Ms. Carey’s schedule-like getting her to become a musical guest for “All My Children”-once that soap is resurrected.:)

  • I’ve seen asses with less of a crack !! Dammmmm Nick Cannon must be sporting a freakin cannon to fill that.

  • Geez, that camel toe is so huge and red, I almost didn’t even notice the mysterious hand that is floating to the left of Mariah. Wth?!? This is the craziest whacked out picture, I wish I could unsee the whole damn thing!!!
