Mariah Carey is not the highest paid judge on reality TV, because her one-year deal with “American Idol” is worth close to $18 MILLION. Mimi’s first year as a judge on Idol, superscedes J.Lo’s paycheck for the first year, where Jenny only raked in just $12 million.
Mariah tweeted about joining the show saying, “It’s gonna be so much fun working on American Idol. As a singer-songwriter, I’m excited to help find and nurture new talent. LYM! – MC”
Hopefully she doesnt turn into a basket case, but we all know she will be a Diva. Who will the 3rd judge be?
