Mariah Carey To Join The American Idol Judges Panel?!

Is The Deal Really Close To Being Sealed?
Just after American Idol judge Steven Tyler announced his departure from one of the greatest talent finder competition shows in the world, American Idol; Jennifer Lopez then followed stating she'd be leaving the judges panel also. Leaving producers to look for two more judges to sit alongside Randy Jackson.

The two lovable judges Tyler and Lopez would be greatly missed, but they both are reasoning their departure based on needing time to focus on their music careers. There were no feuds whatsoever, in fact Jennifer stated to ABC News Amy Robach "We had magic,I don't know, with him gone, it might be a different formula.". 

How does Mariah Carey come in this story? Well, there have been reports saying for the longest since Paula Abdul's departure in 2009, American Idol creator and once judge Simon Cowell has been trying to get Mariah Carey to sign on as a judge; that on Idol and his new FOX hit show The X-Factor, but conflicts in scheduling refrained from Carey being a judge. However, last week a very close source told US Weekly "They are in serious talks with Mariah and it's very close to being a done deal." If Carey is chosen to be American Idol's newest judge, Randy will sign off as a judge and become a mentor to the next batch of hopefuls. 

I'm not sure what to think of the whole situation, I really believe American Idol needs to have steady judges who will sign on for a long time and not up and leave. I never knew Mariah Carey to be very critical verbally, I kind of want MiMi to stick to being a mentor and not a judge. BUT who knows, she might just have something stored up her sleeves for us LAMBS <3!
