American Idol chases Mariah Carey
talent show American Idol may be getting a worldwide idol as a judge – Mariah Carey (pictured). A show source says Carey is being pursued to join the show’s judging panel. The source requested anonymity because of the private nature of negotiations, which were termed as serious. Carey has also been courted by other talent competitions, and her name has been thrown out in the past for Idol and other shows. There are two openings: Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are leaving as judges after two seasons. Randy Jackson, who is a manager of Carey’s, is the only judge left.
