Mariah to Carey 'American Idol'?
With Tyler and J.Lo out, rumors swirl around latest diva
Bing:More on "American Idol" | Mariah Carey | Steven Tyler | Jennifer Lopez
People is quoting an anonymous source who tells them "she's in play" and "in serious talks," while Us Weekly, not to be out-scooped, claims that not only is "it very close to being a done deal," but that "they will move Randy into a more mentoring role." According to the Us story, "AI" brass "think they need to freshen everything up now.” That's probably pretty good thinking.
My picks would be Billy Idol and Elton John, although AI probably couldn't afford the latter of the two.
J Lo was great on Idol, fun personality, stage, recording and film experience, incredible style and perfect chemistry with the other judges.
Hate to see her leave.
Mariah would be good, Alicia Keys and Sean Combs would also work, BUT LAMBERT is certainly NOT qualified!
I love Mariah, but my immediate thought for a replacement was Jessica Simpson. She would be so entertaining.
#2....Triumph the Insult Comic Dog
#3...Beavis and Butthead (they count as one)
Although he wouldn't do it, but I think Paul McCartney would be a perfect judge. He is a perfectionist. He done similar in the early days as a Beatle on the BBC's Juke Box Jury in England and not to mention Apple's talent searching in the late 60's. American Idol couldn't possibly afford him anyways. Not what he would ask for. :(
Mariah Carey should only be a guest singer on the show. I consider her as great as Aretha Franklin or Celine Dion. She shouldn't lower herself. There is so much drama between the judges. I don't think it will be a good image for her. We just want her to sing and that's it! Just sing, make music!
