Mariah Carey is in.
And... well... that's about all we know when it comes to American Idol Season 12.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, producers are hoping to cover every musical gamut, from rap to country to Latin. Along those lines, its top choices would be:
- Nicki Minaj
- Keith Urban
- Enrique Igelsias
One hold-up, however, is that Minaj is the new Pepsi spokesperson and Idol is notorious for its overt advertising deal with Coca-Cola.
Moreover, this quartet would be VERY expensive. Carey is already set to earn $17 million for one year of work and luring in other major names such as the ones listed above would require individual salaries into the eight figures.
But that's a problem for Fox. You tell us: How would you feel about Minaj, Urban and Igelsias as American Idol judges?
