Nick Cannon: Everyone's falling in love with Mariah
'Got Talent' host pleased America finally sees the wife that he sees
Nick Cannon is thrilled fans are getting to see the real Mariah Carey on "American Idol," insisting she's so "likeable" on the show. The "America's Got Talent" host is a veteran when it comes to reality TV. And now that his superstar wife has finally made her much-anticipated debut on "Idol," he's elated that the program is showing off the fun and sincere personality he gets to see when she's not in the spotlight.
Cannon gushes over his lady love in an interview with MTV News, saying, "I think the world gets a chance to see another side of Mariah, and everyone's falling in love with her. I looked at Twitter, Facebook, when I see all the write-ups, because now they're judging the judges. They gave her an A all across the board. People got to see how knowledgeable she is as a musician and a singer, and she's so charismatic and the most nurturing person I know, so it's cool."
Cannon is well aware that the ongoing feud between Carey and her co-star Nicki Minaj has been this season's most talked-about topic. But with that aside, he's glad that viewers can still see that all four judges, especially Carey, care deeply about the aspiring hopefuls on the show. He explains, "Obviously they play up the drama. But then to see that everybody is really sincere, especially Mariah, she comes off so likeable -- it's awesome."
"American Idol" airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
Mariah is excellent on the show.
Since when did Randy get so mean on Idol, he constantly laughs at contestants and can be rude.
How did the girl who sang the National Anthem get put through to Hollywood? Are the Judges serious?
Enough with the staged comedy, get on with the real reason why the show is on the air.
J Lo will be so missed! Her and Tyler were the best thing that ever happened to Idol!
I can't stand American Idol anymore. All the judges are japping and going on instead of showing the good singers. When they do have somebody there it's somebody stupid that can't sing. I have never ever seen the Idol in such a disaster.
Can't stand all the bickering
. Not fun to watch anymore. Too much talk and not enough singing. If it keeps going on, I will not watch anymore. Why can't they bring it back to what it used to be. Show good singers and the goof-offs on a different show. They used to have a special one for that. Now you hardly get to see the good ones, mostly stupid stuff. Don't even like Randy anymore most of the time. It's gone all down the hill.
Mariah Carey is a legend with so much knowledge in the music business, she should not lower herself to respond to Minaj's nonsense.
The show should not allow Mariah to be disrespected.
Enough with the bickering, it should be all about the contestants.
Cannon is great on AGT, he made that show so entertaining! He's funny, genuine and real.
Sean Combs and Kerri Hilson should have been Judges with Mariah this season.
Seacrest is terrific.
