Two seats on the judging panel of American Idol were left empty when both Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and singer Jennifer Lopez announced that they were quitting the popular TV talent show. For weeks now, many celebs have been in the news simply because Idol execs were considering them to replace Lopez and Tyler.
Finally, we can confirm that one seat has been filled.
Singer Mariah Carey has been offered $18 million to judge just one season of American Idol. That’s more money than any other judge has ever made on any reality TV show. People magazine reports that Carey has an option to renew her contract after a year.
We can’t wait to see who fills in the much-coveted third seat, and how much they’ll get paid!
