Mariah was way too big of a star to judge a competition like American Idol.
Mariah Carey Officially Quits Idol
According to TMZ
Mariah Carey just made it official — she will NOT be back at the “American Idol” judges’ table for a second season … just as everyone expected.
Mariah’s PR people announced her exit … before further confirming rumors that ‘AI’ producers want to make a clean sweep for next season.
As we previously reported … ‘Idol’ is extremely interested in bringing back Jennifer Lopez to judge next season — and keeping Mariah and J.Lo would clearly be a bad fit … and a pricey one at that.
We know Mariah and Jennifer wouldn’t be a good fit. We all saw Mariah shade J.Lo by not standing up to applaud her.
